Hello Blogland!!! How is everyone doing?? I just got over a lovely stomach virus. Let’s just say yesterday’s ensemble was suitable for spending lots of “quality” time in the bathroom and leave it at that!!
Today is a somewhat bittersweet day. My Dad passed away last year on this date after a long illness. I know he’s in a far better place but it seems so odd that he isn’t here. He was so looking forward to our daughter’s (his only granddaughter by his biological children) wedding and all. He was an avid gardener, quite a brilliant character and I truly miss him every day.
Ah well, onto more cheery things. The hubster finally got the other shelves up in the Craft Palace so I could display my vintage sewing stuff and my awesomecakes vintage Sears & Roebucks Merry Mushrooms canister set. All I need is the napkin holder and I’ll have completed the whole set-creamer& sugar, salt & pepper and canisters.These go for a ridiculous price in antique shops and Ebay. I found the whole pristine set of canister at a thrift for $5!!! They are just SO retro 70’s tack-tastic!!
The other side of the room has shelves with my figural planter collection. I do love me some tacky planters!! Now they are getting expensive because they are “collectible” and “cool”. UGH!!
Megan of MeganMaeDaily asked to see a close-up of the embroidery on the jacket I wore Tuesday. Ask and ye shall receive!! It a gorgeous design and it’s on one lower front panel. one sleeve and on the shoulder onto the back.
Todays outfit was still in the Teal/Aqua Theme with a bit of lime green!! I was able to fix the shoes that gave me a fit last week. I removed the original elastic straps (which were round elastic) and replaced it with flat black elastic. All those years of sewing elastic and ribbons on my daughter’s ballet shoes paid off!!! They were like wearing bedroom slippers today!!
I have been trying to personally answer every comment you wonderful folks leave here. I’ll still answer questions as they come up personally if needed but life is going to go into overdrive with the holiday’s and such the next few weeks. Please don’t be offended if I don’t answer back. I so enjoy chatting with everyone!I’m TRYING to keep from going crazy and it’s a short trip as it is!! Of course I’ll still be visiting and commenting on your spectacular blogs!!
Busy Busy weekend ahead!! Gotta take the sewing machine to the shop for its tune-up in prep for the holidays!! And check out the thrifts while I’m in town for goodies! Plus I need to get together my party outfit for Sheila of Ephemera’s cyber birthday party!!
See y’all later this weekend!!
