Somebody has this jar of clothespins. It makes me happy when I take an  item to the booth, and it sells immediately. I hope this individual enjoys the decorated ones as well as the plain ones. 

I had a productive afternoon marking off errands on my TO DO list.
  • Pick up prints of trip pictures
  • Buy silver polish, Visine, and Comet
  • Mail card to church member of the week
  • Drop off two jackets at the cleaners
  • Pay nursing home bill
  • Visit Mother
  • Check on booth

Happy Is Such a Nice Feeling

Our weekend was lovely due to cooler weather and gentle breezes. Felt guilty enjoying our fine weather while the East Coast was suffering because of Hurricane Irene. Nevertheless one little boy had a wonderful outdoor birthday party on Saturday.   

I wanted to share a card from my friend Pat. She makes the prettiest cards.
This one was too pretty to tuck away so I placed it on my bedside table.  

 Dear friends, this sentiment says the same about you.

Just a Quick Note

My recent trip was a refreshing change. Of course, home is special, too.

Friday Fix-up

This morning Mary and I worked on the booth giving it a bit of a fall look. Take a moment to look around.

Short but Sweet

My four day get-away with college friends was just as I, relaxing, and memorable. Historical buildings, quaint shops, antique malls, great restaurants, and friendly people made our stay in Bardstown, Kentucky, extra special. We fell in love with the town.

When I view this doorway I remember how my mother would step out and walk to the swing and spend long stretches of time sitting and reading. She is confined to a wheelchair and no longer takes an interest in reading. Her life at the nursing care facility is a small world indeed. I cherish my visits with her because one day I may not be able to call on her there. Today I mentioned I would be away for a few days due to a short trip with college friends. She told me to have a good time and that she would be okay. My prayer is that she will be okay and that our trip will be safe, relaxing, and memorable. With a heavy heart I know my mother's memories are shrinking. I am blessed she continues to know me. To lose your precious memories to Alzheimer's would be devastating. However, a soft-spoken female doctor at our last trip to the emergency room spoke kindly to me and said, "You are suffering because you remember how your mother used to be, but she is not suffering. She is content in her world."

Just Because

Thought I'd share a few random pictures...just because I love pictures.

Take A Look

It's a good thing people like different things. You may have passed these up, but they spoke to me out 0f the blue.

This terra cotta pot with the wire and spool handle was my cute buy.   


The desk organizer is a useful addition to my art and crafts center.

Friday in the Store

I was going to stop by the booth for a few minutes, but it turned out to be much longer. Plenty of customers were milling about upstairs. One lovely young shopper told me the booth was one of her favorites and that she checks it  out regularly. Now that made my day! There's just one problem I have when I stop by the store. I find cool stuff I like in other booths. Today I bought two spur-of- the-moment small items, and I am so happy with 'em. I'll snap their pictures soon and share... one that's cute, one that's useful.

In The Kitchen

While waiting for brownies to bake I puttered around in the kitchen and came up with this little arrangement. Cheese boxes made the mini shelves for the butterpats and egg cups. 

vintage-looking appliances on my new magnets from Mary

Garrett, Gunner, and Nicolas left a few brownies for tomorrow. Cork and I couldn't resist a brownie topped with vanilla ice cream. What a tasty indulgence!
