I love Goodwill

I went to Goodwill a few days ago and found this awesome vintage sheet. It looks like it has pink in the pic but it is really white.

It was to small to go on my bed so I made these pillow cases out of it.

It looked so summery and cool so I also made....

myself a little summer skirt out of it.
Your skirts don't match your pillow cases?

Small things that make me happy.

Who would have thought making my first buttons would put a smile on my face....I <3
They are going to be so pretty in a hair flower.
. I know, I'm a nerd.

My Day... so far

I've been gathering things for our yard sale next week.

Some of the things from the closet for the sale.

I even got MOST of the laundry finished,days still young.

I sat and looked out over the porch my husband is building off the new room.

I watered all of the 100 lil cups with seeds in them.

I made some pins and hair clips for the sale next weekend.

These are black and gold, the school colors,hoping that will sell them.See the middle? It's a lil baseball bat,soccer,basket and football.

These are made from a breast cancer awareness bandana.

I thought this little button was darling, I got it in a swap from swap-bot last week.

I made this believe sign for the sale....and this Hope one.

Also this Bless our Nest sign

I watched and listened to Daisy barking at the neighbors cause they had a big sale today and she could hear all the people over there. I also got Nikki an antique plate with pansies around the edge for 50 cents!

I also tackled the big job today. I got up this morning and wentr out to the shop to get a chicken out of the freezer, when I opened the door the most HORRIBLE smell attacked me! Come to find out Britt had thrown the breaker a week or 2 ago and totally forgot the freezer was on the breaker he threw. We lost a big bag of chicken tenderloins,about 5 birds and a turkey...could have been worse. The clean up is finished since he's home now and the freezer is airing out waiting to get new stuff.

What have you done today?

I have been having outbreaks of shingles as far back as the early 90's. Usually I know when they are coming and expect them. This time they kinda snuck up on me. A few days ago I had a little itching & tingling (which is a sign) and then I had like one or two pop up and not bother me much at all. Tonight all the sudden I felt the burn and it is full blown. Boom! Just like that and the most painful I have ever had.
When I first started getting them they appeared on my wrist,weird place to get them. Then they moved to my hip where they usually come up all the time now. I even had them pop up a few times on my knee. Most times they are just bothersome and uncomfortable. I am lucky with that because some people are hospitalized from the pain.

This a google picture of someones shingles...looks like a pretty bad case. Can't show you mine since they popped up on my butt cheek! They are about half as big as my hand this time. *sigh* Anyway for some reason I just felt like sharing,aren't y'all lucky?

THIS IS THE DAY this is the day
WHICH THE LORD HATH MADE which the Lord hath made
I WILL REJOICE i will rejoice
AND BE GLAD IN IT and be glad in it.
THIS IS THE DAY this is the day

I have this song in my head, it's found in Psalm 118:24 and we sing it in SS. My kids like it ...I think cause they can get LOUD.

I have gotten all my flowers made but not all sent. I was going to send the rest tomorrow but I'm not going into town. I get to take off, just not for a good reason. Linzy is really getting beat up with this flu and I have been really achy and a bad sore throat so I hope this tamiflu stuff works and I don't get bad like Linzy.
It has been raining for ...well too long. It's so depressing outside. Cold and wet and gloomy...I want the sun back.

Oh I have the cutest little headbands for infants and thought one of the small flowers on them would look so cute! I'm really excited about that if you can't tell.

Ok back to the sun, if you have him...send him to Arkansas please. Preferably in the Southern part of the state.

So did I mention I joined the gym? Well I did. I actually work out more since I pay for it. I have lost almost 3 lbs in almost a month and 4 half inches. Half inch in my waist,abdomen,and both calves. :) Yep I'm proud of me. I'm also learning to love the treadmill. well...maybe not love but I don't hate it any more.
Ok that is enough rambling. As for the pic...it's Kelly- :) Isn't she pretty. *giggle*

And the winners are....

I drew the names for the flower giveaway and the names I drew were...
Cat....Brat...and Oka.
Then I thought well hardly anyone commented on BOTH blogs so I'll send one to all who said enter me ,or count me in please or something like that with the exception of my brother Mark. I just don't think one of these flowers will look good on him. no no no.

So I'll email all of you and I need you to get back with me on what main color you want, what kind of fastener you would like on the back and your addresses so I can send them. Thank you all for participating and remember if someone sees them and likes them and wants one or two or three...please send them my way.
I'll be making more and adding them soon.
Now for a picture of the one I wore to church this morning. TATA and thanks again!!
