What's Been Going On

We went to an estate sale today and had number 61 and 62...yikes...we waited in line for almost an hour and these are the few goodies I bought. LOTS of goodies, a pretty packed house and the dealer's ahead of us really made out! We are going to another sale tomorrow AM! Toys listed! Hubby is excited!
This photo was taken on Saturday before we went to the musical: How to Talk Minnesotan
which most of us enjoyed. Friday we went to HQ, General Store and had lunch there...huge Popovers!!! and then that evening to Trail Of Terror...which was "silly fun"... Thursday evening I had dinner here with our Birthday cake dessert, shown in last post :)

Made these cards from photos taken from my Maple trees! They are Thanksgiving Cards.

Sweet Pea will be going to the vet on Monday evening to have her "surgery" Tuesday AM...I'm not comfortable with having her "under" as it did affect one of our dogs...will put it in God's hands. She was a wild girl tonight...hanging on to my pant leg...
This week I painted my new room at HQ and will be moving my "stuff" this weekend. The color is called "concrete"... it's a gray/green color. Hubby will help me move the stuff! No more stairs after that :)
Hubby's Dad will be 80 this weekend and there is a Open House for him on Sunday...Grand daughter is going to be a white fairy. I want to spend a day crafting...maybe in a couple of weeks.
Christmas is less than 2 months away...YIKES!!! Yesterday the winds were so bad that our power went out..only for 45 minutes. Still cold today. Winter is around the corner.
Have a wonderful weekend...
Warmly,
deb :)

Busy, busy! Cute cards! I know you will be so relieved when Sweet Pea is home again! Good luck at the next Estate sale! We got lucky and our power only flickered on and off. Boy is it chilly...broke out the wool coat tonight!

Hi Miss Deb -
Girl...sounds like you have been busy and having some fun too with your friends. Love the cards you made and you gave me inspiration to use a couple of photos I have for holiday cards ;) Poor little Sweet Pea, she is going to be needing some treats after Tuesday. Be sure to share pics of your new space at HQ once you get it all set up.

Wow Deb! I love the Thanksgiving cards you made! They are just beautiful! You are always so busy and you always find the neatest stuff. I never did get those paper goods from you. Do you still have stuff like that that I can use as backgrounds? I can send you some money and you can surprise me with a little assortment of goodies. What do you think?

Diane said...

Wow that was a long wait I have never been 61 that would be hard to just stand there and watch everyone leave with goodies! You did pretty good in spite! Hugs, Diane

Jane said...
