Cards, Finds and High Speed !!!

I made these cards today...needed to created. Thinking FALL!!!
Garage sale finds. Not much. The milk glass snack set was only .... ready...$1.00 for the set!


I uploaded these pictures under 2 minutes...hubby installed the high speed thingy and it is so nice! Some things don't seem "faster"...but loading pictures on my blog was GREAT!
Friday at HQ was slower then last month. There are other venues happening this weekend and that could have affected our sales. I'll be heading out there later to pack up my things that were outside. I'll try to take a photo next month of the outside goodies.
That's all around here....kind off in a lazy mode and it's still rather humid today.
Deb :)

I've had a box containing a snack set for a year now (my sis didn't want it). Thought I'd use it in a trash to treasure piece for the blog party at Oronoco on Friday. It is the same set as yours!! How coincidental! I had never even seen that style prior to opening up the box. Good purchase on your part!

Great deals! Love the milk glass set.

Love you Fallish cards. Very pretty. I hope Fall Time arrives soon. I love the cooler days after summer.

Sorry for the slower weekend.

Nice cards...I've just finished 11 today...now my eyes are blurry but I did finish a post to go out tomorrow morning...

I agree...you are the Garage Sale Queen :D

Sorry to hear the sale did not go like you would have liked. Our kids start back to school tomorrow, so it was quieter than normal at the store today. What a great deal on the snack set....It is finds like that that keep us going. I should have looked at your blog instead of sending you an email, you answered my questions.

Amazing milk glass score! Garage saling has been so awful this summer. I'm still waiting for that one great sale!
Happy Monday!

I remember how frustrating it was waiting for pages with lots of pictures to upload; thank goodness for high speed! Last month (July) was a slow one for us at the shop but this month is fantastic. We credit it on the weather being not as sweltering! Congrats on the high speed and great deals!

Jane said...

Hi Deb,
Cute cards that you made. I love the fall images.
The high speed internet does make a difference doesn't it. Don't know how I ever lived with dial up back in the day!
