what day is it?

Having problems because of sooo much fun remembering what day it is! Fantastic rummage day today...We started with a "list" routed out so we weren't backtracking...(don't want to waste the $$$ we save on GAS! ALTHOUGH TODAY IT DROPPED TO 3.19 A GALLON....amazing how we get "conditioned" to rejoice at 3.19!!!! Seems to jump by dimes and drop by pennies...anyway back to "the list" the rummages that were on the list...were lousy..chalk them making "the list" up to creative writing on their part! THEY SOUNDED SOOO GOOD! although we did find a few in the areas of the published ones that were outstanding! One rummage filled the front grass with an entire house of shabby chic decor! Like they took the house and tipped it on it's side and shook it out the front door! Many things were marked...and were a bit pricey but there were lots of items that weren't marked...had to call the lady with the "hat" over to price them...(and that was a GOOD THING) as she gave us FANTASTIC DEALS...i got three armloads of stuff..(she didn't have bags...WHO CARES!) ANTIQUE DESK FAN...going to paint the blades...there's no cord so it will just sit and look pretty!...two boxes 18 compartments in each filled with old rosaries and glass beaded chains! bits and pieces...i was worried about this price..and had to sheepishly ask while clutching both boxes...another lady was coveting them...i could see the "look" in her eyes as she stood right next to me and ask what was in the boxes...hee hee...so i went to the hat lady and she said...oh those old things...how about 2.00 for all...geez...my heart skipped a beat! got a shaggy rag rug...an antique gardening fork...some vintage fabrics...



....was a good day! and tommorrow there is a 40 family sale three blocks from my house! starts at 8...shannon meeting me there with the babies...

...working on my tiara for the tiara swap! oh oh...i have 4 layers of wire, beads, irridescent fibers, more beads on it already...i did the base and added 13 spires to it tonite! going to add more each day!



teapartea swap going well...can't say much about that because IT'S A SUPRIZE!



button cards off to heather www.speckled-egg.com what a fun swap! i had hosted one about a year ago and i was soo happy she hosted one too!



BIG HUGZ
