Let Me Know You Were here!! :)

Sunday, August 24, 2014


Well, my news of the day!!  And it's very exciting.  My hubby, John, went down to visit his parents...with the intention of going to the Annual Iroquois Car Show...which he did.  Out of the 300 or so vintage cars there, he took BEST OF SHOW aka JUDGE'S CHOICE..the most prestigious award there is to be given.  No...nothing monetary...but he's bringing home a really neat trophy.  Told me it must weigh 20 pounds!!  Isn't that just "the greatest"?  

So, here it is.  His 1957 Hudson Metropolitan and the trailer he built to match!!!

My day??  I worked...which was pretty uneventful.  Had coffee with my buddy, Toby, and took Oggie Dog for a walk.  Don't know why, but I'm just beat.  Need a nap, but it's too late in the day.

So...with that, I better get off by butt and do something....think I'll go sort buttons.  

Congrats Johnnie!!!

And hope you've enjoyed your week-end!!

Still Shedding...

Yes...I'm still at it.  Shedding all of the "over-flow" from my craft room!!  How's it going...you ask??  SLOW..very slow and stressful.  I have such a hard time parting with "stuff".  I've managed to take 2 bags of clothing over to one of our local thrift stores and have a large box ready for the yard sale.  

Getting rid of some of my yarn is very difficult.  I'm holding off.  But I did manage to list 3 skeins of Lion Brand Chenille...which has now been discontinued.  It's very pretty, but just not my "cup of tea".  I hate working with it.  

Need some yarn???????  Stop on over and shop in MY store!!

Have a great Saturday.  :)

Yes...I am shedding.  I'm going through my closet and getting rid of clothes I haven't worn in years.  I've lost some weight and have keep it off for over a year now...so I think I'm safe!!!  I also inherited a bunch of clothes from my Mom...most of it fits...some is just too tight for my liking.  I've managed to take 2 bags of nice things over to one of our local thrift stores.  Had to do it "right way" before I changed my mind.  Now...I can't remember half of the items I bagged up...so obviously, they won't be missed.

It's been a very trying month.  My Mom passed away on the 25th of July.  I was with her...and although death is so damn "final", it was a beautiful moment.  Make sense???  She brought me into this world and I was there to help her out.  She spoke of dying the last day or two...so I knew it was just a matter of time.  I miss her.....and I have a broken heart.....but I know she's here with me.  I can feel her presence.  

On that note...I will leave you to go back to my "shedding"....and think of my beautiful Mother.

I miss You.....
