Thrift Score

It's a whale. Made out of beans. I love him. Possibly the best $4 I ever spent, too.

What treasures have you found lately?

Record party

What are you doing this holiday weekend? I'm decoratin'!

Children's Fairyland is a storybook theme park in beautiful downtown Oakland, CA. It's been operating since 1950.

Grownups are not allowed inside without children, and children are not allowed inside without a grownup. It's been a long time since I was a kid, and I hadn't been inside since sometime in the early 70's.

A few weeks ago, Fairlyland opened the gates for a grownups only party! ALL proceeds from the event went to Fairyland and help them keep admissions low (or even free) for local kids.

I drank a refreshing adult beverage in the little pig's house of bricks! I don't remember it being this tiny.

Magic Keys open the talking storybooks at Fairyland. I still have my original key and it STILL WORKS!

Have you ever been to Fairyland?
