I don’t like to post when I’m feeling down, just don’t want to bring others down with me I guess, but I think in a way that’s why I started this blog two years ago so that I could or my kids could go back and see what I had to say…you see back in February friends of ours daughter died at the age of 28, I won’t go into how or why she passed away it doesn’t matter now , a beautiful girl. Her parents were devastated and it took me a while to get over it. Well, last week another friend of ours son drowned in the Alleghenney River while fishing with a friend and the friends dad, they got to close to the dam and the water took both Brian 28 and the friend’s dad, the friend managed to swim, we think he was somehow thrown clear of the turbulent water. Brian was married and they would have celebrated their 2nd anniversary next month, so young and so sad!!! You see my mom buried my brother and my sister buried her daughter and I’m scared…am I next? Am I crazy? Stush has even asked me what’s wrong!
Well, that’s what has me down ladies and gents and I’m trying to get over the sadness of it all so bear with me, posting today is a step forward, I just haven’t wanted too. I also think my birthday got me down too although I try really, really hard not to let it do that to me:)
As you know I always go to a consignment shop once a month, it’s located across the street where I get my hair done and I always manage to find something to come home with me, I found this large sampler for $14.00, it’s not an old one but while looking at it I thought it would look better if I painted the frame black (of course) and maybe apply some coffee stain to the sampler part. The back of the sampler is cardboard and I hate to take it off because it is framed so nicely but I’d like to darken it up if I can.
I found this 5x7 picture at GW for $1.99, sorry it’s not a good photo of it, it’s really neat and I already have the frame painted black and distressed.
Also at GW Wednesday, I found this pewter porringer for $5.99…I think GW is getting smart:)
and here is the bottom of it, a neat find at GW I think":)
I always look in the glass case for the designer purses and I hit the jackpot while there, I found a new Vera Bradley purse for $9.99, made me feel good because I was wanting a new purse for summer and finding a designer one for such a good price was even better:)
That’s about it blog friends, sorry it’s a not so great post but I do hate to be away to long. Thank you to my newest followers and also to my older friends I so appreciate you stopping by for a visit. Have a wonderful evening wherever you are♥
