{lazy library afternoon}

Today has been one of those lazy pre holiday weekend kind of days. Nick went to do some arts and crafts at camp this afternoon and Ben and I headed to the library.

Since he turned five last week, he is now old enough for his own library card. What a rite of passage! Both of the boys love to read and we are frequently at one of the two town libraries or in the aisles at Barnes & Noble. I just have to show you Benjamin's signature on his card...he was short and sweet with it:

We had a nice afternoon at the library. We sat and read some books together. Ben loves Frog & Toad and has been reading the old Dick and Jane books. Ben then selected some DVDs to borrow while I was picking some summer reads.

Here is what I chose:

Before we checked our books and DVDs out at the counter, I stopped by the library's "garage sale" table. All proceeds benefit the library. I was so excited to find an item I just featured on the blog this morning!!! I bought a vintage hobnail planter marked down to $2. I am putting a little pink cosmos in it to put on a white wicker table later today. I love it and am always happy to find milkglass or hobnail pieces for my collection.

I'll be back tomorrow or maybe sooner...I have a great {Etsy Love: Blue} collection to share with you to wrap up the days of Red, White and Blue. I also am trying out three more Burt's Bees products--the Beeswax & Royal Jelly Night Cream, Radiance Serum and the Radiance Eye Cream. I am only a couple days in and will have to test them more before sharing opinions...
