OK...Where did September go??
Wow am I the only one, or did September seem to fly by for anyone else? Does anyone else out there have severe allergies in the fall?? I am miserable even taking all my meds! We haven't had rain for 2 weeks or so, and then they are picking the blasted corn and bean fields in the lovely Midwest. Ugh! Looks like today we might get rain. I love rainy days, they are so cozy. At least NOW I like them again after having roofs replaced this summer on both of my buildings.
This is part of my tiny laundry room and I added the new little vintage clip hanger and it is perfect for drying my delicates. I love all of my vintage children's items and this is only part of them. I will show you more later on. The vintage Stewart seeds sign is perfect since that is my last name:-)
I found the small Royal Winton chintz at an estate sale this past weekend, I am going to keep it. It was such a good price and chintz is always so expensive.
My sister and I did find some time to start new projects. We did
collages and even added fairy dust on them so we could cut them up and turn them into ornaments. That is one of my collages at the top and to the side.
And if you haven't been over to see Polly at Counting Your Blessings she has a wonderful new magazine she has had published called Porch. I loved every page of mine! I can't wait for her holiday issue it will be packed full of more great photos.
One sad thing this month, my attached man's sister died suddenly. She found out she had lung cancer and within a week she was gone. Her husband said she seem to look up towards heaven and then just closed her eyes. I guess it was very peaceful but still sad for her family left behind.
I was tagged a while back by Linda at Somewhere in Time to play a question and answer game, here goes~~~
1~~ Where was I ten years ago? I was here living behind my antique mall.
2~~ What was on my To Do list today? Finish my post I started on my blog, shipping, mop my kitchen, pay phone bill, make a lampshade.
3~~ What would I do If I were a billionaire? I would make sure my family's future would be secure, mom, dad, my sister and my son, of course my attached man, maybe he would become more than that;-) I would really enjoying doing for others that were in need. I think I might start my own charity organization.
4~~ Five places I have lived? Indiana (three different towns in Indiana) Arkansas, Mississippi, Texas
5~~ Bad habits? I deal with procrastination on many different levels, shoving things in drawers or in my closet instead of taking the time to put things away correctly, Hince my nick name my brother-in-law called me~Stuffn'Stash. Open more than one box of cereal after I go the grocery store, because I can and my mother wouldn't let us when we were little, (can you say rebellious? LOL)
Thanks Linda that was fun!! Sorry it took me so long to play, forgive me.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Fall, then Christmas is around the corner again too isn't it? Wow time does fly!
