Vintage with a Chance of Rain



I've added a few new items to PonyParty this weekend that I really love. These are a few of my favorites so far but there is an extra special one on the way. It just needs a little wipe down before it makes its grand entrance.





I also wanted to point out the fancy new ads in the right hand column! They are some of my favorite online shops and even more special because they are also some of my favorite online people. Each of them offers something beautiful so be sure to check them out this weekend in between running errands, cleaning house and eating ice cream.

I also want to say how proud I am that some of you have responded to the Retrieval Project in such simple ways to show support and encouragement to the Swanson family. I've already received an e-mail from Jenny this morning that reflected how grateful they feel for so much response from people they don't even know. It's encouraging to see how this online community can truly impact lives in ways that might not otherwise be possible. Big thanks to those who have visited their site and left comments or helped out in other ways!

August is starting off with a little rain in Springfield. What does your weekend look like?

xoxo,
Rachel
