It's Been a While

They say time flies when you're having fun.  Well I can't really say that what I've been up to has been all that fun but I have been keeping busy.  Busy enough that I haven't posted a blog update for some time.  I actually love the fall pics from my last entry, because now we in the dull, drab, leaf-less time of the year.  Foggy mornings and dreary days.  The sun peeked out for a while today which was a treat.
Even my sisters are wondering what I've been up to so I thought I should update.  The yard work and canning season is finally complete.  I discovered as I put things out in the gardens, I must do it a little at a time.  But when I began playing like a squirrel and started storing my nuts or in this case, yard ornaments ... I had a lot of "stuff" out there. Stuff that I call eye candy for the flower beds.  But I did get a few of my pastime shopping trips in at the Good Will and St. Vinies too.  So here you go Sister, Sisters ...

This is just a sampling of some of my finds on my last couple of adventures.  As you can see I found some more crafting "stuff" which should keep me busy this fall and winter.

Well, well, well, I see you finally got your head out of the fog...kidding kid, for it's been busy round here too, but not with my help, I'm afraid.
Nice finds. I have those first boots, I have that jacket, I have more than enough taters. Lol I LOVE that crock. I haven't ever come across such a fine find as that 3 gal. dude with cool handles. I also have a very similar St.Nick.
We sisters sure do think, dress and act alike. Behave if you can.
Loveya, Missya, Hugya, Kissya

Good entry and great finds. Love a bargain. Also love the friendship and love between sisters. You guys from the Big O clan are great. I was just telling Dar ho your mama's 50th anni. RED quilt picture with all your names on it, came up on my screen saver, giving us some time to think of the folks in the North woods, even the 'U'PER.

Love to you and Thom.
