Swap Meet Finds: Kitchen & Dining

This weekend hubby, JD and I took a little stroll through our local swap meet.  I haven’t visited the Rodium Swap Meet in a couple years, but now I may need to start visiting more often.  I came across a vendor selling Macy's kitchen and dining items.  Needless to say, this totally made my day!  For $30 I brought home an Acacia wood salad bowl and tongs by The Cellar and a 14 piece Martha Stewart cutlery set, both retail for over $70!

Hiccup from How to Train Your Dragon

Julian wanted to be Hiccup from How to Train Your Dragon for Halloween this year. I really enjoy making JD's Halloween costumes, so I was definitely up for the challenge.

To make JD's costume I purchased brown fur fabric to make his vest. I used left over strips of the same fur fabric and sewed them on to a pair of brown suede boots. I couldn't find just the right shirt, so I purchased a girls long sleeve shirt at Ross on clearance and dyed it olive green (I also dyed an old pair of pants). I added a little slit to the shirt and crisscrossed suede cord for our little viking. While searching for ideas online I found and purchased Hiccup's Battle Pack Set from 2009 on Ebay and voilĂ  JD's costume was complete!
