A mish-mash of events

The end of February flew by and it’s only by looking back over my iPhone photos that I have any idea what happened…


Suites & Sweets! This was the third annual orchestra fundraiser, which involves lovely music and lovely desserts. I was in charge of table decorations this year, and I had some lovely helpers. Our theme was vintage romance. It was sure pretty at night! I made luminaries out of old sheet music for battery-operated tea light candles.



New this year was a photo booth for the orchestra kids to take pictures at. No, these are not orchestra kids. These are my tagalongs.


They insisted I take several pictures of them.


Actually, it was me doing the insisting. I had to make sure the photo booth area looked OK through the lens of an iPhone camera.


As Ed says, this is Bethany and her posse. Translation: all Bethany’s friends from orchestra.



The posse plus the orchestra teacher. We love Mrs. Smit!


One of the antique/consignment stores in town had this bench outside for sale. I fell in LOVE immediately and brought her home. The cute model just happened to be along for the ride. I plan to sand down and stain the wood slats a dark espresso and paint the blue curly-cues some other color…maybe white, or red, or black.


I took these two sweet girls to pick up their first job applications. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear as though the place is hiring as we haven’t gotten any calls yet.


Becca had to create a musical instrument for school.


It turned out really cute! You hit the washers with the end of a large bolt and they vibrate over the hole and the sound is amplified with the funnel.


This box of crayons is in the classroom where I work. Everytime I get it out it just makes me soooooo happy. One day I just had to take a picture of it. I’m weird, I know. But loving fresh new crayons sorted by color is one of the things that makes me a good Kindergarten aide.

All right, coming up next will be college visit #2, Corban University in Salem, OR!
