Cards, $10.00 bag & Family photo

I was with my BFF last week and we made some cards. I really enjoy card making and next week a blogging buddy is coming over to make cards with me! I will be sure to do a post. She is a wonderful card maker :)

We went to another AWESOME estate sale this past weekend. Hubby bought a set of lawyer bookcases for his toy collection. One of these days I will show you his collection. Above is a $10.00 bag. Whatever fits in the bag goes!

 This is what I had in the $10.00 bag...the tin canisters are in tough shape. I figured I paid less than a dollar per item.

These are from the same sale, but at full price :)  The estate sale was of a former antique dealer and there were real antiques there! It was a good sale. Happy that hubby had the day off!

This is one of the photos from Mom's 80th birthday party. I won't show you my entire family as per their privacy! I might use this photo for Christmas cards. Grandgirl wore very tall shoes. She is about 5' 6" or so!

Confession: I haven't started cleaning up the family room. Today grandgirl and I cleaned out the linen closet and a couple of kitchen cabinets. The family room is over whelming for me right now

I hope you are enjoying these summer days!

Great treasures and cards.
Very nice family picture. You are already ahead for Christmas.

"Warmly" is RIGHT! Here in NE Indiana, at least...
I do have fun with bag sales :)
Looks like YOU did, too.

I love those cards. I do enjoy making cards and bought some more stamps yesterday but I don't do anything like these.

Your cards are so pretty, Deb! It looks like you got some great items from the sale. I loved seeing your family photo. I went to Ohio last week to celebrate my mom's 87th birthday, but was sad to leave her.
You'll get to the family room, and I just think it's so nice that you have a helper. It's much easier with someone there to encourage along the way, isn't it?

Your cards are adorable, my friend! And how fun to have a blogging friend over...I look forward to seeing the post on that and not that I need to tell you, but have fun! :)

Your estate sale finds are wonderful and you definitely got some wonderful treasures tucked into the brown bag.

Happy hugs to you!
