Back in Happytown

Hi, I'm happy to tell you that my embarrassing little gloominess is past--and I think that my whininess is too! LOL Thanks for all the hugs and kind words--you gals are the best!

We actually had a weekend with no parties! Yeah! I love going to them and visiting with everyone, but it has been really nice to be home this weekend. Yesterday we rented movies and made brownies and popcorn and lazed around! NICE.

The kids are both home for a few days anyways and I am getting some help taking care of Misty--so that is nice too. She is finally starting to feel better and is getting around a little easier with less pain.

I had the best best best score at Yesterday's Treasures on Friday! I walked in the door and she was sitting there with a big twinkle in her eye "Karennnnn.......I've been waiting for you........" (man, I love it when she says that!!) Then she brings me over to HER behind-the-counter- chair and tells me that I better sit down! lol She pulls a box over in front of me and opens the top.... A box full of vintage trim and laces! Oh my, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. I dug around in there and ended up with a pretty good pile of vintage goodies!! So, I'll be using some in my new crafts, and keep an eye on my shop as I package some up for general sale so others can enjoy crafting with them too.
I was able to get downstairs and work on some new things too! Here is a new Pink is Ducky Goody Bag that I put together. Isn't that fabric cute--repro feedsack in that pretty pink and covered with little ducks! I love it. (Notice the cute laces and trims! these are from that bunch I was talking about!) This is listed in my Etsy shop.

I also made this cute new drawstring bag--the bottom is linen that I recycled from a vintage tablecloth. I really like this soft color palette.

And, last but not least--I've made this little brooch. I call it the Goodness brooch because it's got all the good stuff that I love--yoyo, hand crocheted doily, and a beautiful vintage button!

I used to to have a person that would hold bags of broken jewelry aside for me, but that store is now gone. I really miss it. Those things can be hard to find!

Glad you are feeling better. Have fun with your new pretties!
