Hi everyone. It has been a long 6 days, but we got a lot accomplished at our parents house, along with sharing some great memories. I honestly wish I had the time to put all the things on eBay or an etsy shop because we counted over 150 containers of material. I haven't begun to count the spools of thread, but I did find some old wooden ones that they let me take to paint for lace and things. I need to find the before pictures of her shop and what I did last week. They finally believe me that it takes more than a week to get ready for this garage sale.
I had not been to bingo since I won the $854, so Friday night I played the cheapest pack they sell and won $350, so went back last night and won $125. Since I have most of my kitchen decorated, I am going to call my sil and see if she wants to play a pack for Al and they can split if she wins. She's been depressed a lot, so maybe taking her out of the house will do her some good. She lost her friend this week from cancer, but we all knew that she was terminal. I went to school with her and a lot of costume parties recently and she was such a sweet person and will be missed by many. I also lost an old friend, but it was too late when I found out---he was my age and my sister dated him a few times in the 60s. So please keep Carolyn and Ronnie's family in your prayers.
I thought I would not be able to put all my trees up this year, but I found little nooks and crannies to put them and we figured out a way to display one, but I have to finish getting everything else done, because we are using my holiday closet for a display. I am usually finished by Thanksgiving but it looks like it will be closer to Dec. 1st.
Well I hope everyone has been well and busy crafting. I have visited a few blogs and saw some really cool art by my friend Tia and jewelry by Mary. I hope y'all don't mind if I send them there. You can go to my favorite blogs and visit them--unabashed repetition and MJB collections. Mary has an etsy shop with her jewelry for sale.
Going do a little more in the kitchen---Al put shelves above my cabinets and I still need to hang my curtains over the window. Have a wonderful and Blessed Sunday. Love and Hugs, Pat
