thank you girlfriends...

A few Fridays ago I posted about making memories.

As I was taking these photos for my post today I could not help but smile as I remembered when I bought this.

It was a rainy Friday in July and my girlfriends and I left the kids and husbands back at the campground and enjoyed a day of shopping, ending up at a local Mexican restaurant for lunch margaritas and lots and lots of laughs!

I purchased this old tattered and torn vintage inspired "book".

It may look like just an old book...

But I am going to use this secret compartment to hold my memories from this summer.  While relaxing this weekend at my campground I am going to take a few moments and write down some of my favorite memories and bring them home and put them in my old "book".

Now every time I look at this treasure I will remember my girlfriends and all the fun we had that day.

Thank you Lisa, Karen, Beth and Sue for a memorable day and for a lot of other moments in time that will be remembered in my "book" for years to come!
Love you all!

I am sharing today with Debra for Vintage Inspiration Friday and Courtney for Feathered Nest Friday.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend!

Oh...and for all you locals The Wrentham Country Store is having a big sale this weekend right through next week!
Hope you can make it!

I am absolutely
smitten with the
idea of writing
down memories and
storing them in a
secret box! Now
I need to be on the
look out for one of
my own; hope you
don't mind if I copy!

I have seen those books in Home Goods and TJ Maxx, but have yet to buy one. They are so neat though!!!!!!

Such a wonderful idea....will you have enough room in that "book" for all of your memories? It sounds like your weekends at the campground are full of them!
Hope you enjoy making some more this weekend.

You got me with this one. I thought sure it was an old book. BTW...did you tuck the garter from your lunch in it?
