Announcing!

Greetings.  Are you all shopped out?  Fabulous bargains over the weekend.  The pet store even had wee-wee pads on sale!  Not that I need them - yet.  With very few people to buy for, I went for the bath section and got $25 bath towels for 6.99 less 20%, and sheet sets (with king cases!) for sis's king bed for $15.99, regular price of $90.  Happy happy happy.  Still sad about other things though.  Why is it that the holidays are so merry yet so emotional and sad at the same time?  Anyway, I got an email smacking me on the knuckles about not doing a separate post for the journals.  Sorry.  I said I would post them Monday and I did!  I'm uncomfortable "announcing" my work as if it's some great event.  But to make everyone happy,
THERE ARE A FEW JOURNALS FOR SALE ON THE JOURNAL PAGE - HIT THE "JOURNAL" TAB AND BE AMAZED AND BEWILDERED AT THE  MAGNIFICENT, WARPED, WONKY, CHIPPED, BURNED, AND DIRTY LOOKING OUTSTANDING WARES OF MINE!!!
 
If it's sold, Paypal will take you back to the page and the transaction won't go through.  How dare they!
I did a little outside decorating yesterday and will fill a few more tubs today.  I'm not much of a bow girl.  Possibly burlap ties, but I don't want to get too fancy.
And a note to Barb - I got your message and am still holding your boxes for you.  Not sure if my emails are getting through because of your moving.  Anyone else that has not claimed their order by now, sorry, I'm done shipping.

 I am decorating a little inside today, and I mean a little. The trim is still not installed and we've decided to do it ourselves.  The kitchen man #3 has dumped me again, and if I'm not too old to learn, I may become a finish carpenter. I hope a class on patience is included.  Seems not enough younger people are interested in working with their hands so the old farts will have to take over.  If I can take wee-wee pads with me on the job - good to go!!!
Tomorrow it's back to stitching!
Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day.

I want to sit in that chair on the porch and relax a little! I guess I've never known how valuable my hubby is since he does any and all home projects because he says he won't pay someone to do something he can do himself. I hope you get your trim work finished.

Love the simplicity of decorating with greens! Just beautiful!
It's a shame how workers can be! My husband tells me stories of some of the guys he works with! WOW...

It's true--work ethics are not something people teach these days. I notice it at MY work, and people definitely compliment my husband when he does work for them (he is a contractor/carpenter). If the economy were not so unstable, he would do better. Wish we lived closer--he would have had it done for you right away! Hugs!
