Hi everyone!!! It’s Feb. 1st and I’m so glad, at least now we can say that next month is spring!
I’ve been in such a funk lately, I don’t want to do anything, I have a stitchery staring me right in the face and it only needs about 20 more stitches and it would be done and I just can’t pick it up, oh, I can pick it up to move out of the way but to finish it… nope! It’s a snowman yet and you would think I’d want it done for at least next year. I look at all of your great blogs and see all the neat things you are doing and I still just sit or work or watch the girls. Do you know what I did today? I had taken Samantha to preschool than went to GW (more on that later) after that I went to Gabrials then on to pick her up…then to McDonalds. Dropped her off at the babysitters went home, it was 1 PM by then, left at 3PM to pick her up than to the bus stop to pick up Sydney ( I live about 7 miles from them) on the way home they start bickering… already? I pull into their home and they jump out to race each other to the garage door in the meantime I’m in the back seat collecting Sam’s book bag, toy/clothing bag, my purse and anything else the forgot. So I’m there for about two hours…Michele and Jeff come home and I begin to get my coat on and hunt for my keys…ladies I left my car running for two hours!!! I couldn’t believe it, I still haven’t told Stush…am I that nuts or am I just getting old.LOL
I’ve been to GW twice to see if there was any wood items but the pickens were very slim in that area, so last Friday I found this punched tin shade that screws on to a ball jar I’m sue the jar that had been used with it probably had an electric light in it, I’ll have to figure out something for it because a tea light doesn’t light up the punched tin at all. Here it is on my kitchen counter, I paid .99 for it:)
II also found these wood candlesticks for .79 a piece, have I painted and distressed them yet…nope, maybe I will for WWW:)
Today at GW I found this pewter mug for .99 so that did cheer me up a little, I’d love to get enough pewter to put on my mantel like I saw someone on a blog do, I can’t remember who I do know that it looked wonderful and I figured the pewter would show up well against the brown brick.
This was a neat find…some black and white homespun just a piece of it but for .50 I couldn’t pass it up!
I always look for Pfaltzgraff when I go to GW and today I found a Yorktown pattern dinner dish for .25…I couldn’t pass it up either so it looks like I’m collecting that pattern too:)
I had enough time to stop in at Gabes before I had to be at preschool and I found a pewter candlestick for 1.99 that wasn’t to bad I didn’t think so it came home with me!
That’s about all ladies, thanks for listening about my crazy day it feels good that you do:)
Would the lady that had calendars for sale, they were very prim ones, on her blog please leave a comment on here so that I can order one that is if you have any left, also anyone that does know and can tell me which blog it was and I’ll get in touch with her thanks!
I’ll try to post more too but right now I’m off to watch “Pickens” it’s on the history channel:)
