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
Stay off of your thighs!

Warm hugs,

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!

Warm hugs,

How to Stay Young

Received this in a email. It's by George Carlin. I though you would enjoy reading it! There is some pretty good advice here.


1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay 'them.'

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.

3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever, even ham radio. Never let the brain idle. 'An idle mind is the devil's workshop.' And the devil's name is Alzheimer's.

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love , whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that Take your breath away.

Warm hugs,

Tribute to a Very Sweet Friend

Tomorrow I will be attending a memorial service for a dear friend who's last years where very difficult and painful. First she was in a car accident that left her unable to work because of horrible back pain, then she was diagnosed with breast cancer which took her life this week.

A beautiful pink rose for my friend Deb

God Saw You Getting Tired

God saw you getting tired,
When a cure was not to be.

So He wrapped his arms around you,

and whispered, "come to me."

You didn't deserve what you went through,

So He gave you rest.

God's garden must be beautiful,

He only takes the best.

And when I saw you sleeping,

So peaceful and free from pain

I could not wish you back

To suffer that again.

Goodbye sweet friend,
