Ready For Monday?

Don't know if I am ready for Monday. We had a great weekend and I don't think I am ready to go back to work. I scheduled too many things for tomorrow! Guess I'll have to cancel something. Too bad I can't cancel what I would really like to cancel, the work related one!!! Oh well! Ya gotta do what ya gotta do!

Went to see Tropic Thunder. I loved it! So funny!! I even got a couple of things made and listed on my Etsy shop! How 'bout that!? Went to a 50's party last nite. We went to one of our favorite restaurants in town, Sugarbrook for breakfast this morning. Every sunday my husband and I split an order of their Bananas Foster French Toast!! It is one of the very yummiest things in the world! Very rich!!!
Then later in the day we went back and my husband got a banana cream pie and I got a chocolate mocha coffee cake!! Oh, yes! I felt like a pig for sure!!! You know once in awhile you just have to do that!! So--- guess I'll be working real hard at the gym in the morning, trying to burn it all off!
It was a busy but fun weekend.

Had a good weekend. Not too exciting, but fun. Nice Italian dinner Friday nite. Pizza and the UFC at my daughter and son in law's Sat. nite. A movie (The new Mummy one) and got some crafting done. Finally got some of my old grapevine wire in and got a couple of nests made and some eggs felted. So I have one little nest pincushion done and ready to list on Etsy. I'm gonna try to get it listed this afternoon, and maybe another one finished and listed if I'm lucky!
I also got my button card packaged up and ready to mail today for the Vintage Button Card Swap.
I got a few other little crafts worked on.
I also watched my two youngest grandkiddos last nite!

Oh, yes! and I received my Itty Bitty House Book on Sat.!!!! How adorable it is! Bridget did such a beautiful job putting them together and the talented people who took part in this swap are amazing!!

A Couple Of Random Pics

Just thought I would share a couple of random pictures I came across. The first one is of a small gourd that my Dad made for me along time ago. I just love it.

And this is a very old Indian doll that was actually in with a bunch of old dolls that my grandmother gave me when I was young. They were all pretty old then, so now, they are REALLY old!! But this little Indian was always one of my favorites. I don't know anything about him. If anyone out there does, please let me know. Several of the old dolls have started coming apart. I just read the other day in the newest Mary Janes Farm magazine that there is an actual doll hospital in Michigan. The website is I haven't looked it up yet. But, I'm hoping to find out some info about fixing up some of these beautiful dolls. It is mostly just arms and legs and heads coming off due to old worn out bands. so---- if I ever get them mended, I will post some pics.
