Barefoot by the Sea: Keeping it Real

Keeping it Real

The start of a new year results in my quest to find a home for all the new items we've aquired over the holidays.  It leads to me to the realization that people are very generous, we are running out of space and that it's time to make a few trips to the local donation center.  It's a great feeling to clean, organize and regroup after the past few busy months.  The girls are also very busy becoming aquainted with their new items.  Here's a peek of what we've bee doing over our vacation....
A lot drawing, artwork and playing school.....
New crafts...
New music...
All these fabulous new gifts and yet we still prefer Mama's wooden spoon and our treat tins to play the drums....
Have a great Wednesday!


  1. So glad the kids like the easel! Emma mainly wants to paint every. single. day. And regularly reminds me that we have a craft room so it doesn't mess up the rest of the house...

  2. Thank you for hopping over to Saving and Sharing It and following me. I am now following you back. Love the drawing!

    Thanks for finding me today. I love the name of your blog, I too live by the sea but this time of year much too cold to enjoy it. I live in an old historic home where storage is limited so I totally get the clear out the old to make way for the new. I also love to donate my 5-year-old daughter's toys and know all these little treasures are being passed on to other children who may not otherwise have them. Happy Wednesday!

  5. Hi there,

    New follower here. I love the name of your blog also. I live in the Caribbean, so I'm always be the sea. :)


  6. Hello there!! Your daughter is adorable!! I'm a new follower, following back from a comment you left on my page

    Thank you for the follow!! I look forward to reading what you write!

  7. So cute! I feel the same way the the gifts our daughter got. She prefers the box to the toy :)

  8. I was just thinking that if I video taped all our piles and toys around the house, it would make a lot of people feel good about themselves and that they're so much more organized than I am! :) I'm in paper purge mode myself!
