DIY Library Bag (from a $5 Ikea slipcover!)

Our library trips have become more than our favorite bag can handle. Also... we lost it. So it really was time for a new library bag, whether we liked it or not. And thank goodness for that because now we have a bigger, better bag!

Plenty of room for books!

Plus pockets on the outside for bookmarks and summer reading program cards.

And nice long straps for holding it over my shoulder (while wrangling a certain one-year-old who goes all floppy-fish when he's unhappy).

$17.25 Yard Sale Run

Yard sales with three little boys... don't happen too often. So when I had a chance to go with my MIL a few weeks ago, I jumped at it! I think my favorite find of the day was this little $0.25 pot for my succulent survivors

Here's what else I found:
$2 - moon sand
$1 - wooden butterflies
$0 - littlest pet shop (they threw it in with the rest!)
$1 - paper butterflies (brand new from pottery barn!!)
$1 - paint-your-own matrishka doll
