500 Post, Casey Jones & B-day

WOW...this is my 500 post! Where does the time go??! And....do I really have that much to say!? LOL! I'm digging thru my "stashes" and will have a giveaway soon. One of our old clocks. It's now at one of the shops. Can't keep everything!

I think I may have showed this picture before. My sister's and I loved to watch Casey Jones. We were even more excited to have our picture taken with him, even thou it doesn't look like it! I'm maybe, 10 years old.



With the temps in the 60's it is "Spray" painting time! Frames, totes and little shelf for display pieces.





My "little" Grand will be 9 years old this week and today we celebrated her birthday! Aww..she is growing up so fast. Almost as tall as me and can where my shoes!








This is our gift to her...on the card it told her what the gift is.."teddy bear hamster" that she can pick out after they move.






One HAPPY and Excited birthday girl!

This week's agenda so far: cleaning 2 houses with the gal that has her own business on Tuesday, aka: making money, BSF Thursday and Friday working at The Vintage Cottage, aka, Fun and making $$$. Throw in a couple days working out, laundry, groceries, etc... and there is my "week". What's on your schedule?

Warmly,

deb

500 posts, lord girl you are chattier than I thought! I think I am closing in on 200. I think the grands liked her hamster gift! Wow, sounds like a busy week. We have had rain this weekend in the sunshine state, so I am hoping it will clear up tomorrow so I can paint. Then just more projects getting ready for the flea. Have fun, glad it has warmed up!
