The kids and I found a great garage sale in our neighborhood a few weeks ago. They had a ton of toys, which I held myself back from buying, and all kinds of fun things for kids. Peeking out from among the filled tables was a princess crown. We grabbed it and paid our 25 cents before anyone else could claim it. It was missing a few gems but not to worry. It’ll be all glammed up quickly. Isn’t it great that I’ve got all kinds of craft stuff at home, including my own stash of sparkly jewels.

The Cinderella costume is complete. Luckily for V, she doesn’t have to wait until Halloween to wear it.
