Monday, Monday....

I started the day out on the wrong foot.  I realized that I forgot to go to Bible study around 10:30 this morning, just as it was ending.  Oh well, I missed so many classes while I was gone, haven't been able to go since I have been back, and won't be able to go due to other commitments for about a month!  The order from Sue Bartels party arrived this morning and I got that all sorted and packed up.  I have a to do list for the next two weeks a mile long and got a few things checked off on that.  I decided to make a run up to Practical Cents as I had seen this shadow box on Saturday while I was there.  I was thinking about it but decided to see if there was anything else I was interested in and left the store without buying anything (a rare event), and forgot about the shadow box!?!?! Can you tell I am in a fibro-fog???  Any who, lucky for me, the box was still there, and today I got it for half price.  Yippee!  I have seen Archivers advertising something similar they are selling to alter and I believe they want $15.00 for them.  I bought this little treasure for $2.00. My whole pile of stuff came to $8.70 so it was a good shopping day.  If any one out there knits or crochets and has any small amounts of  yarns that they can't use for another project, I am interested in them.  I need small amounts to make some crochet flower pins.  I hate to break into full skeins as they take so little yarn, and it is better for me to have a wide variety of nice colors for selling them.  The funnel I bought for filling canning jars with things, and the spiders are for another project I have cooked up.  I thought you might enjoy seeing my latest treasures that will be going into future projects.  And the knit pants are like new and will be great for lounging around here in.  I just finished wrapping Diana's birthday gift, and I need to make a birthday card for her yet, and for another friend who's birthday is tomorrow.  But right now I am going to take a quick nap!  Have a great day!  Elaine

  1. I recognize that funnel as I have one just like it that I have had for years. It is a good one to have. Like the shadow box, I have a small printers box but I will not alter that as it is an antique. I keep my collection of thimbles in it. Practical Cents here I come! Hopefully one day soon. LOL!
