Happy Birthday Leslie!

Today is my first child Leslie's birthday. How in the world did she ever get to be the same age as me 39! It feels me with great joy when I remember the day she was born!! Back then we never knew the sex of our baby until they where born..it was like open a Christmas present! They brought her to me in a red stocking and hat, oh how adorable she was. I was in the hospital for Christmas but it didn't matter because I had waited 5 years for her and I was very happy.

I couldn't find a picture of her when she was born
and in that stocking and hat but here are some others.

Leslie at 4 months. She had cast on both legs because her feet turned in.

First birthday!

She was a climber here she is on the kitchen table!

Here she is all grown up and still beautiful!

Leslie still fills my heart with JOY and LOVE! Only one thing could make things better and that would be living closer! Happy Birthday honey!!

Vintage Christmas Monday!

Found these cute elf wall hanging at a garage sale (where else!). I think it's very sweet.

Always looking for these vintage mercury glass garlands.

I think about the people who sat around the table with this tablecloth on it.
A wonderful Christmas tablecloth with bright colors!

I've been debating if I should make a wreath with all these vintage Santas.
What do you think?

You must visit Joan at Anything Goes Here to find all the other participants. Only one more Monday before the BIG day!

WANTED Smokey The Bear Boy Scout Hat

I'm looking for a Smokey the Bear Boy Scout hat. It's for my brother who still loves boy scouts at 55 years old! He's very involved in scouting again since his son is a scout... he does everything camping, hiking and what ever his son does he does plus he's a leader and trainer. He had the Smokey the Bear hat when he was a young scout but it's been lost since we cleaned out the family home years ago. Please if you know of one that could be for sale let me know...this is going to be his Christmas present. Thanks!

PINK Giveaway at Rose Petals & Rust

You must visit Stefanie at Rose Petals & Rust she's having a sweet PINK giveaway !

Thanks for the sweet comments about my colonoscopy on Thursday. Everything came out nicely! LOL They did find another flat polyp and it's being biopsied... it will probably mean another scope in 6 months but that's way better then ending up with the big "C"!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.

Preparing for a Non-Holiday Event!

Today I'm preparing for a colonoscopy tomorrow. I think the prep has to be worse than the colonoscopy! Since this is not fun I've been searching for some funny stuff on the Internet to keep me amused. Here's one I thought everyone could enjoy!

I'll let you know how everything turns out tomorrow.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Wishing Everyone A Very Happy Thanksgiving!
May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey be plump
May your potatoes and Gravy
Have never a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner

Organized clutter!!

Yesterday I was getting my website ready for the upcoming Christmas Carnival on SaturdayNovember 28th which I'm participating in. Last night about 1 AM I was working on my needle felted Angel Snowman for my giveaway and needed some blue ribbon...it has to be here some where!

Maybe it's in one of the bins - sitting here at my computer I see 4 plastic bins and don't really know what's in any of them except stuff for crafts, Ebay, personal?

Pulled all of this out of the green bin (my favorite way of organizing)
no blue ribbon in there!

More clear plastic bins!

Maybe I bought some at Big Lots

More clear bins

Pretty boxes for ribbon storage

Here's a bag from the church thirft store - everything was 1/2 price paid $1.25 for all these treasures!

Never did find any blue ribbon but I'm really frustrated and unhappy about my cluttered Shabby Cottage. This isn't something that just happened recently but the clutter had gotten much worse since selling on Ebay (inventory!), blogging and my re-interest in crafting.
So today I decided to clean up around here and started a new blog
DeCluttering Our Shabby Cottage

I know something else to take up my time but I'm hoping this will hold me accountable and keep me on track.

So I'd better hurry up and finish my Angel Snowman!
