We Are A Volkswagen Family

My daughter's new to her car came rolling in the back yard the other day.  We found her a 1969 VW Beetle.  She is so excited. Her daddy is going to clean it up a bit, rebuild the engine and paint it baby blue for her.  

This makes us the proud owners of 7 Volkswagen's now. It is an addiction and a love.

(yes, my daughter wears different colors socks all the time)

Have you seen the movie "The Bus"?  It is wonderful! It may just be wonderful to us because we are bus owners. I smiled and cried through the whole movie.  And did you know that Tom Hanks is a bus owner...... I love him even more now!!  If you get a chance, check it out.... you too will want to own a bus after watching the adorable movie/ documentary.

(  Here is the trailer for the movie)

A little bit of sewing this week..... my niece started high school today. This was her first day in public school ever. She has been homeschooled since kindergarden.  I found the cutest little pattern by Atlinson Designs called 'Briget's Bagettes'  and thought it would be sweet to make her a pencil bag for school.   I filled her new pencil bag up with 'Smarties' ,  put a note in with it saying "You are so Smart", wished her luck with her freshman year at school and sent it off to her.

The back of the pencil bag is shark fabric because she too like my son is shark crazy. :o)

That was a trip down memory lane. My daughter's first car was a BWbug. It was bright yellow!

It seems like your whole family is into Volks! I guess it runs in the blood. My family is into Caddys. We find this classic vehicle awesome. My dad and my brother both own a Caddy, and one of those cars was given to me as a gift. And despite the old age, I certainly love it!
