My newest find

I have been busy painting some things for my new bedroom that will happen sooner than I thought. We have decided to put my parents house up for sale since my sister can't find the funding to keep it.
I would love to be able to buy the house, because of the craft shop, but we would have to sell ours first or find a renter who would stay and take care of our house.

Any way, I will be gone all next week to start pricing things for the garage sale and we are praying we can do it all in one week. We have to rent a van this weekend to get our furniture out and anything we are keeping because we will need the main house for all the things we have to sell.

This is a Gutmann book that I found and even though it's not old, 1990, the pictures are adorable. Somewhere here, I have an old picture of the little girl sleeping, but not sure what I filed it under, but hopefully when I clean out my files, I will find it. My scanner is old, so I am hoping to get it scanned at a print shop and put them on a disk.




I have an infection in my nose ever since I fractured it, so I have to call an make an appt. to see the doctor. Just the thought of it still being fractured has me worried that I have a deviated septum which might require surgery---the thought of gauze stuffed up my nose is not a good thought since we had to smell my brothers nose when it got broken----yuk!

I found a lot of new treasures but haven't had time to take pictures and the things I am painting, I forgot to take before pictures--oh well too late now.

I am almost finished with my Halloween cards, so they should go out in the mail on Monday. Al is on vacation next week, so he is going to sand down my 2 doors for my dressing screen. I was hoping that we could find another door like one of them and put the one with all the opening in the middle and cover the openings with a pretty vintage fabric. Al can draw really good, like Candace Olsen on Divine Designs, so I am hoping that he will do it for my bedroom, that way I can carry it with me when I shop for things to put in it. I can sleep with pretty clutter, so that is my intentions---the more the better.

I have decided to put my Christmas blog back and just use that for seasonal decorations, so it won't actually be a Christmas blog per say. I will use old pictures that aren't so great, but you can see how our collection has grown over the last 37 years. I was really into country back then and except for a few things, all the rest have new homes.

The International Rice Festival is this weekend and for the first time since 1988, I will be visiting booths instead of having one. I will be fun seeing all my crafting friends from all over Louisiana and Texas.

Well I can hear the orange and black calling me-lol- so after visiting some blogs to say hello, I am getting to work. I hope you all have a beautiful weekend. Love, Hugs, and Prayers for all. Pat

Smelly your brothers nose?! You poor thing. Hope yours is doing alright and you won't need surgery.

Ele, guess I said it wrong. When you were near him, it was worse than morning breathe with the guaze packed in his nose. I am praying also, so thanks--hope they can just clear it up. Love and Hugs, Pat
