Scrap Book: Witch Hat Visit

10 Aug

I’ve been using my powers to thrifting to put together an awesome dress up chest (as per my Life List) and Isobel is just entering the perfect age to really enjoy it. One of her favorite things is this witch hat, which actually isn’t thrifted but was certainly a thrifty find. We bought it about a year ago from the dollar bin at Target even though money was really tight. She looked so adorable in it then and is still adorable now. Seriously, you should click on over to see the cuteness, if for no other reason than to see the Herp Derp Awareness button the grumblies made me.

Sometimes she likes to wear items from her dress up chest when we go on errands, and it usually ends up being one of her many necklaces. This time, however, she insisted on wearing her witch hat to Papa and Ama’s.

When your kid decides to be this awesome, you just have to get out of their way.

    I love it! This is the perfect time to just let them wear what they want! I have dreams of doing the majority of my future kid’s shopping at Halloween time. I mean, tiger and monkey suits year round?! How great would that be?

    I have a witch hat for Halloween, and I once pitched to my friend, “What if I wore this all time? Like, I just became That Woman Who Wears a Witch Hat. I’d be famous in town.”

    And probably also a little bit of a freak as I am not a toddler and cute like Isobel. Ah well.

    So, this is almost totally unrelated to the post; however, I had to tell you. I was watching Hoarders the other night and this woman grew up in an amazing mansion with all these fabulous antiques. I thought of you while I was watching it because this woman’s house (and 16 storage units) were thrifting GOLD. Then, that night, I had a dream that I saw Isobel in one of the clips on the show (I didn’t really). But in the dream she was walking through the house, running her hands on everything and saying, “Preeeeeeeety.”

    Strange hey? 🙂

      Strange? Maybe. Wonderful awesome super spectacular? YES. Please involve me in any dream that involves thrifting gold. You’re super.

    I think everyone should grill in a witch’s hat, with toddler approval of course 😉

    I love your idea of a dress-up chest! I had one when I was little and it was my favorite thing EVER. I have a few things I’d love to contribute…I’ll e-mail you for your address.
