Oh, Happy Day.....

Not only am I back

this is my
200th Post


I sure have missed being online daily
but alot was accomplished this past week
So Much to be
Thankful for

Obviously I am back Online &
So Grateful ~

My Daughter Nikki Moved out of her Apartment
& is for the next 3 weeks staying with her

Then She & her Cousin (My Sweet Niece & God Daughter)
will be moving into a Nice
2 Bedroom apartment ~

They both needed a room mate & this turned out to
be Perfect ~

So Life is getting better ....

I have a new Batch of OLD
Treasures that will be
listed this weekend on E & E

I actually saved a few from the Trash
(My downstairs Neighbor was tossing all her Old
Dolls - 1950's)

When she saw I was Saving them,
She gave me much more....

I spent last night with My Sweet Lady that I
use to Care for all the time, Hubby had a meeting
so I went out, she gave me one of her
Afghans that she works on

(I have several that I will be listing on E soon
money raised will help to keep her in Yarn, so she
can continue to crochet)

I honestly feel that Her Crocheting Constantly
has kept her Alzheimer's from progressing at
a faster rate....

Well, I would love to just sit & chat,
visiting all I have missed, but I have a
ton of work to do...

So, See You Soon


The Santa photo on top was something I picked up this past week
from the local Salvation Army Store ~ it was just the Santa
which appears to be painted on a Wood Panel, like a cabinet door
it was all just the bare wood & faded paint, I loved it, but knew
it needed something, it was so unfinished looking
I took the old papers that border from a 50's dictionary
on it is Christmas & Santa Claus ~ then I painted the
border the black, touched up the painting on the beard
& finished it with Johnson's Paste Wax
I Just Love It!
He's So Jolly
(soon to be listed)
