Another whirlwind weekend. I think the weekends go by faster and faster. Maybe I try to get so much accomplished and go go go, that they speed by! It was a fun weekend and I was able to pick up a few goodies for my tree. My plan is to have a different more shabby tree this year with pastels. Hmmm we will see if I manage that. But hey I live alone and I will enjoy my tree.
Friday was clean and laundry day. I am pleased to say no further plumbing problems like last weekend.
Saturday was "Starbucks" and Phoenix day. Colleen and I headed to Melrose and I was able to find an ornament and the neatest frog flower jar. Love it. From Melrose we hit a small antique shop and although there was cute stuff nothing I fancied. Then to Rust and Roses where I found a few more ornaments. From there we went to our favorite Olive Annie. Yeap we both found clothes but yeap we both resisted. Prices above our budgets. Surprised huh???? We were both hungry so off to Wildflower and the most wonderful pumpkin soup. The best I think I have had. Then on to Peddlars Wife to check out what was on sale. Got a very few things there. and then to Market Square. Found more breadpans but didn't buy and a few more ornaments. Then home. I was tired!!!
Sadera came to spend the evening with me as Mr A was at a birthday sleepover and Mom & Dad were heading to a "Mystery Who Dun it" dinner. Jenn was given the role of the fan club president so she was dressed dorky with her hair done by Ms Sadera. John was the DR so we gave him a bloody ear bandage. Guess they had a great evening and said how much fun it was. Meanwhile on the home front Sadera and I made 8 pumpkins for the table at Thanksgiving. We played the "Uninvited Guest" a game Colleen had given the kids and watched movies. Good quiet evening with Sadera.
Below our pics of my finds
Sadera took these pics of our pumpkins. Jan (Stampin UP) had taught us to make these at our last monthly class. Sadera was really great at helping.
John and Jenn ready for their nite out
Ornaments I found at Market Square and the cone shaped things are egg cup holders cute huh?

Cute little figure from Melrose
Christmas doves. These are Kim's wooden doves that I altered for my tree. I think she will be selling them at Silver Bella so check out her vendor table! Didn't quite get the holes drilled in the place I needed so they would hang straight. But still love them
Snowflakes I am making again for my tree. This is a Stampin Up stamp. Takes a long time to cut out the snowflake but it is worth it. The little wooden birds are from Kim's Etsy store
