Okay seriously though, was this Pigs in Space lunchbox not the find of the year?! It even came with a matching thermos! Not that we don't already have plenty of lunchboxes, some already featuring the Muppets, but we seem to find uses for all of them, since everybody in this house needs to bring a lunch somewhere. Lunchboxes are also great for storing makeup and sidewalk chalk. ;)

Neighborhood garage sale finds
This past weekend was our neighborhood wide garage sale. We were only able to catch the tail end, but we still found some pretty awesome stuff!
Some of our favorite neighbors are a pair of retired teachers, who just happened to be selling some beautiful, quality kids' reference books from the 1950's and 60's, full of the kinds of stylish vintage illustrations that make subjects come alive with excitement and strangeness -- something the exactness of high definition digital photography doesn't always capture. There's a magical quality to the sciences, especially when you're a kid. I guess that's why we keep stocking GBear's section of our library with more and more lushly illustrated reference books, which I'm very, very happy to tell you she already loves (and will hopefully still dig when she's actually reading!).
