Gone Fishin'

Literally and figuratively, the next month is mine to just mellow out with family and friends. Put my etsy stores on vacation and I'm going to enjoy the summertime. I have a grandson on the way, a new nephew born yesterday, some special time planned with my forever sweetheart and livin' is good!

I hope the rest of your summer is fill with laughter, friendship, sunshine and lots and lots of love. I'll see you in September, but maybe not before! HUGZ!!!

It's a beautiful day!

Well, my little 'sneak it in' customer appreciation went off without a hitch. I repriced three items in my etsy stores at 20 cents plust shipping (a bracelet, earrings and some vintage laces from the other store) to the first who found them. It took a bit longer than I expected for them to be purchased, but they were found (must be Saturday in the dog days of summer that kept them in the store several hours longer than expected!) I'll be shipping the lovelies out on Monday, so enjoy your goodies and pay it forward, 'kay?

Where did the time go?

Was it really almost 40 years ago I married my sweetheart? How did our children grow up so fast--my oldest will be 31 the end of August and my baby is turning 27 two days before we celebrate our anniversary. My goodness, how time flies! There have been lots of highs, a few lows (funny how the lows have faded away and the highs are precious memories forever!) I attribute 40 happy years to committment, covenants and lots and lots of love, consideration and common goals. Yes, I feel like a very lucky lady--or better stated-- blessed with a husband who always puts his family first, and who good naturedly put up with a quirky, crazy me when lesser men would have given up long ago, lol.

It's a wonderful start...a wonderful life.

Oh Drat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm soooo sad...my good camera has the dreaded E18 error....which means the lens isn't retracting or focusing correctly. I guess it is a VERY common problem with Canon cameras--a defect if you will that their cameras often have. Since the camera is out of warrenty and it's $250 to have them 'fix' it...you're better off getting a new camera! So my husband has been trying all the 'hint's' online to try and fix it himself...so far without success. Drat! Drat! Drat! Not really wanting to spend money on a new camera right now, but the other camera's we have aren't as nice for the super macro pic's I like for my jewelry...so I'll just have to make do for awhile.

Oh well it could be worse...like something I really need...my dishwasher, frig, car...just a small blip on the radar...a little bummer. Going off to count my blessings! >^..^<

Good Fun!

Well, it's fun to be featured in one of the Treasury West treasuries, even if it's my vintage hankys, rather than my jewelry!
