|That's right-just a little. And I won't be doing much more. I basically just transferred the antique Christmas bulbs that my aunt gave me from bowls I had sitting around-onto what was already sitting on my little cabinet and added a little string of star lights. Oh yeah-and I put out the red and green doily that Melissa sent me.|

|I ripped and I tore...|
(Faith, hope and love sign is an early birthday gift from my girl!)
|I wrapped and I rolled! And I made a bunch o' ragballs. :)|
|I made pumpkin pie filling. No crust-too lazy!|
|I thrifted. This is a little first aid kit box-it says so inside.|
|These are like-new beautifully printed sheets! Thank you kindly, Goodwill.|
|While I was on the floor taking photos, I turned around and took a pic of our little attic space. I don't really know why, I just did.|
Have a good Monday!

|Mandy made a rag rug and Eren made a little rag rug tutorial. Their rugs were just so pretty I had to try one for myself!|
|It's in my bedroom right now-hiding old, faded carpet. |
I have a feeling I'll be making more in the near future.
Have a great Saturday afternoon everybody!

|I'm giving out some little prezzies to the 'girls' tomorrow at Thanksgiving dinner.|
I'm giving out dishcloths (pick an orange dishcloth and you are guaranteed to never lose it) and...
|and little notepads I ordered from Artscow of my little Rocco!|
|Speaking of my little Rocco-he's not so little anymore. (Of course I've told you that before!) I'd say he's pushing 120.|
And poor Teddy has seen better days.
|I *heart* 'my little Rocco'!|

|I ordered the PDF for this little mini calendar with vintage sheet prints from Sparkle Power's Etsy shop last fall. I printed a few for gifts and I kept one for myself.|
|I love me some repurposing!|

|Happy birthday to my youngest sister, Kimmie! (In the middle, obviously.)|
Here are some memories about Kimmie from last year's birthday post:
:: When I was a teenager and Kimmie was just a little girl-she would, ahem, cut the cheese in front of my boyfriend (not Larry). Talk about wanting to die! ME not her.
:: Then at her birthday party one year (she was still little, mind you) Larry (my hubby now) got her a little toy tractor and a card with money in it. When she opened the card, she looked at the money and said sarcastically, "Oh wow, free (three) dollars." Oh Kimmie!
::At our nephew's birthday party (only about a year and a half ago, mind you) she says to me, "Do you have a bra on?" Ah yeah, Kimmie, I do wear bras in public. And you can bet I ordered new bras the next day. And now every time I see her, I say, "Hey Kim, I have a bra on." And she says, "I'm sorry." Bahahahahahahahaha!!!
***Some more memories***
::When Kimmie was a baby and would be bawling in her little baby seat-my middle sister (Jodie) or I would take her pacifier (which was a bottle nipple with the back covered in tape) and run it under water and then stick it in her mouth and that would satisfy her for a few seconds and then we'd do it again and again. (Probably till Mom came and took over.) (PS-I'm nearly nine years older than Kimmie.)
::Remember this Jodie??? One of us would growl and scare her and then Kimmie would run into the other's arms. We did that over and over too! I wish I had the energy I did then!
::Kim was scared to death of TV commercials for mud masks. As soon as one would come on the TV-someone ran and turned the channel. (That was before remotes. Goodness, I'm old!)
Hope you have a wonderful birthday, Kim. I love you!

A friend of mine asked me to play with her new camera (Olympus SP-600UZ). I obliged.
I seem to take photos of the same thing over and over. Sorry!
I don't think these pics are too bad for not even looking at the manual. The focus seems off in some-but I'll just call that the 'dreamy' look. :)
|Ahhhhhhh, Goodwill-you are so good to me!|
The cutie on the top is the Pyrex I got for a buck. Love the color! (The rest I already had and just stacked up there for visual interest. :) )
|I just love to find these old embroideries. This table runner was just 50 cents! Okay-I'll take it.|
|Just look at the handmade goodness!|
Have you found any thrifting goodness lately? Hope so!

|An apple muffin topped with peanut butter.|
Made just like banana muffins except use about 5 grated apples instead of bananas and add a healthy teaspoon of cinnamon. The recipe I like for banana muffins is on my left side bar.
Have a delicious day!

|Today I dusted the stuff on this cabinet and changed out the doilies (except one). The ones on the ends are some that I won from Melissa. The one with the birdie-my friend Dawnie gave me and the pink one is from Goodwill. Have I ever mentioned that I love doilies??? I do!|
|I don't think I've ever told about my awesome barnwood corner cabinet.|
|It's not very big-it holds a few VCR tapes of yesteryear.|
|No-that's not a Christmas tree. (It just looks that way.)|
I love this corner of my home!
