Text It Tuesday-The Big Top

Well good morning everyone! It is Tuesday and that means I will be bringing you some wonderful free texts that I have come across. Don't forget to follow me so you can always be sure to get all the free texts I send your way!! Plus I like knowing who is enjoying what I have to say. Thanks!

Today's fonts are inspired by the Big Top. I have a small love for the older days of the circus when they traveled by trains and had less special effects to their shows. I love to imagine the excitement of seeing the circus pull in and watching as the big men and maybe even some of the elephants putting up the huge striped tents. I love watching the movie Dumbo because it takes place in a circus but man that movie gets me every time! If you are looking for an awe inspiring book that is about a circus you have to read the book, The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I read the book in one sitting. I was obsessed and still am. Please check it out. I just found out they may make a movie out of it and really hope they do. I would freak out! This is summer I recently took the ankle-biter to the Barnum and Bailey Circus. I was a little nervous about going because I have this horrible image of what circus are like now-a-days but my ankle-biter really wanted to go. I was impressed with it. We went early to see the animals and they seemed well taken care for. We learned about their sanctuary for elephants which I loved hearing. The show itself was fun but a little too much lights and smoke effect for my taste. I guess I wanted things to be more simple and less like a rock concert. Maybe that is just me. Well here are the fonts you have been waiting for. Enjoy! Let me know if you are interested in any specific themed fonts that I can find for you.

Very Late Treasure Thursday...Sorry!

Hello everyone! So sorry this is so late but things were crazy at the end of the week. The ankle-biters school said they didn't have her immunization records on file and so I had to get a hold of someone from her old school and it became this huge mess. I was on the phone all day. Ugh! Then the ankle biter got really sick and things just took over control. It is a shame because I was so excited to do another Treasure Thursday again!

So here are some treasure that I found the other day on a unplanned trip to a local antique mall. I love those kind of trips. I also came across my dream dining set there but unfortunely out of my current budget. I am hoping and keeping my fingers crossed that it will still be there for a little longer. Keep your fingers crossed too please!

Anywho! This is what I did walk out with. I am so excited with my haul!

I got these great scarfs to tie my hair up in to hide my roots showing while I grow the color out before I bleach it. 

 This is my "Collection" loot. The camera is for my vintage camera collection. The head vase is for my head vase collection. I got the Alice in Wonderland book because it is one of my favorite books and the Art in the Elementary School book because I am hoping someday soon I can finally get in the classroom as an art educator. 

Here is another "Collection" loot for my Fiesta collection. I love dark green color of this pitcher. It will go nicely with the other colors I have. 

 This is the holy grail of treasure finds for me. I have been searching and searching for this Pyrex mixing bowl set. I have seen some outrageous prices for this set. Some $100!! This set was just sitting off to the side on a table. I could not believe my eyes when it said $30 and there was a sign saying everything in the stall was on sale. I looked them over and there were some minor scratches but I could live with that. I am sure I will be putting some more on there myself any ways. I was just glad that there was all four and at a price I could afford. I grabbed them and ran to the register with my fingers crossed that they weren't going to tell me they were miss priced. 

This is one of the dining sets I saw at the antique mall. I loved that this one was big enough to sit 6 people versus the tiny table I have that can really only sit 2 but can sit 4. *Sorry the picture is kind of blurry but people were walking around me and I was worried someone would see me and say "hey you can't take pictures here!"
 How awesome is this cupboard! I would love to fill it with my colorful fiesta ware. This is also on my wishlist. I really wish the vendor did layaway but that was a no go. 

This is the other table that I fell in love with. I really like that this table has two leaves. I am looking for a table that could sit several people for when family come to visit or the future dinner parties I will be throwing when I finally have my own place.
 This is the chairs that go with the above table. How cool are the ornate handles and the inlay flower on the seat. 

This is another little cupboard I found in the same stall. This would be great in my future kitchen. I love the bread box down in the  third drawer.
This is the ankle biter enjoying the games they have in the back of the machine. She saves all her quarters for when we come here. She loves playing the bowling game, skee-ball game, and the pinball machines. She also loves grabbing a coke or orange soda from the quarter soda machines and watches old three stooges episodes on the retro tvs while her mom and nana pay for all the treasures. 

 If you are near the central PA area you have to visit this antique mall. It is seriously my favorite place ever! It is so huge sometimes it takes us two visit to get through it all.

Wishing For Wednesday/Fall is in the air!

Hello this fantastic Wednesday! 

I can feel fall in the air in the morning and then the sun comes out and all of a sudden it is 80 degrees and humid. So actually I guess it does feel like fall. I want that briskness in the air though and the fall colors to come out. I am surprised how fast the leaves are changing their color around here. When it comes time to rake them all I will be wishing they were still up in the trees and green.

I know I wrote last weeks about cold weather clothes but I am sorry I just can't help myself from doing it again. I love fall clothes so much! I promise I will try not to do again. :)

Fall Addition Wishing for Wednesday

One of the reasons I love fall is wrapping a scarf around me all day long. I feel like Linus and my security blanket. How fall is the color of this scarf?!

How retro awesomeness is this orange herringbone dress? So perfect. I am loving that collar.

I would love this dress with a pair of mustard tights and navy low boots. How cute!

This dress would look so adorable with a purple or green scarf and the same for tights below. Another great fall dress

What are you looking forward to the most this fall?
