alphabet letters

thank goodness for target dollar bins! i picked up something i always wanted as a kid, but sadly never got! it's kind of silly, but i always wanted the magnetic alphabet letters so i could leave messages for people.

so even though these definitely do not match my kitchen ~ i am having so much fun with them! ps. since they were only a dollar i will excuse that the "w" doesn't stay up unless i prop it on another letter : ) 


since i bought a couple packs, my mister and i have sort of been taking turns leaving each other notes. some sweet and some funny ~ some completely inappropriate, but i have loved all of them. 

this is the message from my mister to me this afternoon ~ i photoshopped it out of boredom.


isn't that sweet? : ) awe. so i've never done it before, but can you spray paint plastic? i was thinking i would add a little coat to these guys and make them fit in somehow.

also, i apologize for not responding to comments these past two weeks. i am just now weening myself off the meds from my wisdom teeth so my life has been work and sleep! hopefully this weekend i will have a chance to get back to everyone AND catch up on all my blog reading. i miss seeing what everyone has been up to.

Aw, that is so cute! I would think spray paint would work on these magnets.
