Tired to the bone!

Hi all my sweet blog friends. I have missed you all so much, but too tired right now to go blogging. I am in Crowley for a couple of days to rest and get away from things. We did great with the sale and made almost $1,700, but still have over half of things left and believe me, the prices were super cheap. I was a little disappointed with my sister because Al wanted Mom's gourds to paint Santa's, but would never give me a price for all of them. She said I should have reminded her that day, and needless to say, I was stuck inside and they sold over 70 of them for $2.00. Al is not happy, but he will get over it.
I finally found my camera, so tomorrow I will take a few pictures of some really great thrift finds. Some I left at my temporary home. I've got vintage lace and trims, a beautiful baby doll, a box of vintage wrapping paper still in the box from a jewelry store and lots of other neat things.
I will be packing some crafts to bring and work on, now that I have lots of free time. Al was going to hook me up with dial up, but the frig at Mom's burned up, so he bought me a new one. I lost a lot of food and that hurt a bit.

Brenda gave me my aunt's old mink coat that is falling apart and as much as I hate to use animal fur for things, I want to use pieces on journals for those who don't mind too much.

I will email my snail mail address to those who asked for it. I also found an empty bird nest in our orange tree, so it will soon be sent out to our bird lover. Not sure what bird nest it was, but it's too small for a Mockingbird. It does have horse hair in it, so I hope that she is not allergic to it. I have sprayed it with a natural insecticide, just in case some little critters are hiding in it.

One of our neighbors that I had not seen in over 30 years came to the sale and she still called me Patsy. It was almost like a big reunion, seeing people I had not seen in years.

Well I am off to check my emails, then get some groceries to bring back, so I will see you all tomorrow. Have a Blessed Evening. Love and hugs, Pat
