Well I will tell you! First off I had my stitches taken out on Wednesday, YaY !! The hand is doing very well in fact I am looking forward to getting the left one done on the 18th of this month, October.
Now I'd like to say that I've been feeling much better but in fact I seem to have caught a little bug. It goes something like this:
My son and/or granddaughter caught a bug.
My son and /or granddaughter passed it to my grandson who in turn passed it to Katie my teen who then shared it with her dad whom I suspect shared it with me or perhaps Katie shared it with me.
Or my grandson and/or granddaughter shared it with me and I kept it a secret unbeknownst to me and shared it with my husband and/ or...
Oh never mind, I think you get it!!
So anyway I was feeling better today so I decided to get out the ladder from the basement, clean and rearrange the shelves above my kitchen sink. Something I've been needing and wanting to do for some time now. I took down several old nick knacks and put up part of my tin collection. So now it's all clean and looks like this...
I like the change. Hey look out my kitchen window and you can see all of the Morning glories growing on the fence!!
Here's a better picture that I took this morning. I can't believe it's October and they still look so beautiful!!
I took so many photos of Morning Glories this year. I'm ashamed to say that I took more photos of them then I did the grandchildren!!
Oh well, I will probably have them overnight this weekend so maybe I can get some photos then.
Last weekend, when my husband was just starting to catch
"The Bug", we spent three days helping my son to move. He rented a small yet very cute house. This is actually the first house that he has lived in alone. Sort of strange that he owns two houses, both of which are being occupied by my DIL and her family. But I think this is good for him. Good to get away from all of the constant memories. I pray for him everyday.
He may be 34 but he is still my first and will always in my heart, be my baby.
On the second day of the move, I was sort of useless being one handed and all. Oh I helped pack some kitchen things but paid dearly for it later on!! So anyway I had earlier (Thanks to my son) in the month, discovered a NEW THRIFT STORE !!!
Yes you heard me right, and let me tell all of you thriftaholics out there, this is the best one yet!! I've been twice so far and have spent over twenty bucks there. If you are a true thrifter, you know that means I came home with some good buys.
Here's just a few of the bargains I found...
This cute little necklace opens to hold medications or secret
scrolls!!! $ 1.00
Old canning jar and pretty vase, $ 2.50.
Large fruit bowl, I paid $ 6.00 for this which I thought a bit high but I really needed a bigger fruit bowl!
Since we will be having Thanksgiving dinner this year I wanted different set of salt and pepper shakers. I have an older pair but the kids love to play with them so I picked these up for $ 1.50!!
I already have two or three gravy boats but I thought this set was more suitable for Thanksgiving Day.
I believe it was $ 1.50. It's probably hard to tell from my photo but it's nice and big.
I've been doing a lot of thrifting this summer. I'm going to end this post with some of my other finds from the past few months.
Lord help me, I think I'm addicted !!
One of my favorite finds. This really is an old tin.
I added some new/old hankies to my collection. When my daughter Ginny visited this summer, I gave her a few of the one's she really liked.
This is one of my favorites. It's a perfume amulet. I wear it all of the time.
Oooops!! My two cats, Pixie and Dixie.
I didn't get them from the thrift shop! My mom actually gave them to us several years ago, Hi Girls!!!
Pretty blue plant mister.
Oh Dear!! I don't know how these found their way to my house! I promised my sweet husband that I wouldn't buy anymore Christmas stuff but they matched my snowman collection!!!
Look closely in the Autumnal picture frame.
That's me, Hi !!
I found this at the "New" thrift store. It's obvious I hadn't dusted or cleaned it yet! It's a napkin/flatware holder. I thought I could maybe put some other kitchen do dad's in it.
It was cleaned today!!
I did buy more things while thrifting this summer.
These were just the latest.
Thrifting is like therapy to me and apparently,
I needed a lot of that this summer!!
Until next time, enjoy the weekend.
Fall is here!!!
