A Little TOO Much is going on right NOW

Everyone needs a "jackalope or two"...bought these at an estate sale...cute!!

Above and below items are from an estate sale on Saturday just down from our house. Hubby bought 2 old clocks and I hope they still chime. He hasn't worked on them. The glasses above were all for 2.00 and below all the S&P's all for 3.00...not too bad.



The photo above and below are treasures from the flea market/antique sale that we went to yesterday...It was a good hour drive from the house and we saw eagles flying overhead...The wall lamp was a 1.00 and I'll make it a candle holder...Valentines 50 cents each, sewing drawer 5.00, Halloween bag 2.00. Halloween items are expensive when found..I was selling mine and now I'm keeping them.









Just a quick project with this cute cocoa tin...I just couldn't throw it away and now it's a decoration for Halloween :)











There is just a little too much happening this week...My Mom needs a pacemaker and her surgery is Wednesday and if you want to pray for her...awesome...and I Thank You!!! She needs to feel Peace now as she is anxious about the surgery.
I still need to get my room ready for the sale on Thursday. Plus a few other things...I'm not sure if I'll get another post in before the weekend...an update on Mom's surgery and maybe a couple pics of my space at HQ...I also don't think I'll be visiting much this week. I'm sure you understand and I appreciate that.
Thank you for understanding and your prayers...
Warmly,
Deb :)

Hello my busy friend ...

No time for moss to grow under your busy feet, is there?! Just loved all of your recent treasures ... those "swanky swig" peanut butter glasses were a terrific score! Ohhh how I ♥ them! Will you be selling your S+P shakers, or do you use them to store your glitter in?

Of course I want to know what your plans are for the pretty sewing machine drawer ... so many neat things can be done with those ... I got so tickled for you when I saw the elegant monogrammed hankies ... wonderful!

I had hoped, last year, to get one of those ME tins, but never did ... it's just adorable the way you altered it! Such a clever crafter you are! I'm holding good thoughts for the upcoming sale at HQ, and saying prayers, too ...

Of course I am continuing to send up prayers for your Mom and all of your family ... I do understand what it's like to be going through that ~gentle hugs~ ... I have such Faith that things are going to all work out and be just fine ... God is so good to us, and He will provide in ways we never imagined ♥

Take care of yourself during these busy days, please ... and know that we will be here, waiting for your return ...

~ hugs ~

Deb, you know my prayers are always with you and this week I'll pray for your mom too. Such nice finds. We will miss your cheery presence around blogland and look forward to your return. Twyla

Joanne Kennedy said...

I will keep your mom in my prayers for sure. Be sure she understands that she is in good hands. God will guide the surgeons hands and all the while your mom will be in Gods hands.

The worry is worst part. We somehow always find it easier to believe the bad things before the good things.

Big hugs
Joanne

Hey Deb, I will be praying for your Mom and we all understand that you need to focus on her and her health. Also, busy getting ready for the sale, wish I could come. If you sell the hanky's with the "H" on them... SOLD to ME! Let me know! Have a blessed day!

Hi Deb! Blessings of peace and healing to your mom! And may you be blessed with patience and organization as you juggle your busy days!

Do you know, I thought jackalopes were real when I was little? I was very gullible! ☺

~~Carol~~ said...

Deb, I'll be praying for your Mom, for the surgery and a speedy recovery!
Great finds this weekend, especially on those glasses. And I know what you mean about Halloween stuff. It's very expensive in the antique stores! And how adorable is that ME tin? I wouldn't have been able to throw that away either!
Take care,
Carol

I love the s & p's and the glasses and the sewing machine drawer. Great finds. My prayers are with your mom. When you get a chance take a look at the lamp I posted on my site and tell me if you've seen one like it before or not.

Margaret Cloud said...

Deb, tell your mom there is nothing to be afraid of, I have had my pacemaker for five years now, it is a simple procedure, I am praying for her. Those glasses are awesome, love them, you always find the cutest things. I envy your finds. Have a great weekend.

Oh Deb,
I wish I had known..but am very happy to hear God answered your prayers and your mom is doing well.

So very happy you loved your tassle...I was quite happy with how it turned out and got on a roll. Those s/p sure do make fun and neat looking tassles. I am going to get a bunch ready to sell. So...If you have more or want me to make another for you just let me know. It has been a neat for us both to *get* what we want huh?

Take it easy and enjoy the day! Love ya, and glad ya missed me! lol

Hugs...Lorena
