Donut love.

Who doesn't love a good donut with sprinkles and chocolate? I've never had the best luck at making donuts. Until now that is I recently tried joy the bakers recipe for brown butter baked donuts. And boy were they so easy all in one bowl to no mixer and letting them rise. Plus you probably have all these ingredients sitting in your pantry right now. It's really a fool proof recipe, I used my donut maker instead of a donut pan since I do not have one and they still turned out fantastic. So if you want some donuts like NOW this is the recipe for you and the frosting was so good also, I can never get the right consistency with icing so I was very pleased at this recipe. My brother ate quite a few of these and handed some to his friends and said they tasted professional like he would eat from a bakery. That was nice to hear when my brother doesn't like something or it taste off he will let me know so to hear that was nice to hear.

Life.

currently
Has been a tad crazy lately. I recently found a job! horray I feel like I had been searching forever it gets exhausting and you get down on yourself for not finding anything. So I had applied at Macy's had a interview the next day and hired that same day. The next few days followed some crazy long training hours, retain in a department store has a lot more to learn then I ever thought. But yep I am pretty excited about my new job I love that I get to dress all fancy like and feel like everyday. It's nice to be at a real "job" again, being a nanny you don't get that same feel, but I still get the joy of doing both jobs which I love. I am just so excited everyone is so so nice there it's going to be a great company to work for. It's an exciting new chapter in my life and I am pumped for it.

Today.

I am in full on prepping mode over here tomorrow is THE day of the Camas vintage street faire it flew by I got my plot placement email the other day it was so weird to see my shop name on the map. I've always wanted to do something like this as a step in something I want to be doing selling vintage,and refurbished items as well as building my own stuff. So this is all surreal I can't wrap my head around it yet. Probably wont hit me until its all over tomorrow. I will try to snap some photos through out the day. It will be quite the early morning since my helper to get the big items to the faire has work at 6 I have to be there at 5:30 so that gives me a good 3 1/2 hours until the faire opens to get my booth ready. AH I am so nervous and anxious I am glad my mom is coming along to help with the money part otherwise I think I would be all sorts of a mess running it alone. Well back to prepping.

Weekend mornings.

camasvintagefaire
Are for lazy mornings sipping coffee and flipping through pretty books. This weekend was spent working on projects for the faire, a little mini hike with the family where we stumbled on to some treasures in the forest. Including a 1920's washing machines, pretty china plates and all sorts of cool bottles. We also hit up the farmers market for lunch and some fresh fruits and veggies.

A before and after.

Lately these days I've been getting ready for the Camas vintage street faire. I have two projects all finished and ready to go. I still have a few I am working on at the moment I will share those once they are done as well. Here is the before of a nightstand and mirror that Daisy thought she would help model. She just loves to stare at herself and has since she was a baby,she also likes to bark at herself its pretty darn cute.

Before.

After.

I loved how they turned out the nightstand wasn't exactly the shade of grey I was going for it looks more of a light blue to me. But the shade is called "pebble grey" anyway I like it and it turned out great, hopefully they will find a good home at the faire in a few weeks.
