Happy Thanksgiving

This has been an interesting year with many things to be thankful. In the last couple of weeks I have finally gotten back into the creative mood. I fell behind on birthday cards and gifts but will be finishing a couple and sending them – even if they are late.

Mac & I have decided to not drive anymore due to the traffic and the crazy drivers. We will be working for Amazon starting as seasonal workers with hopes of becoming full time. We have been very fortunate to have clean driving records and no accidents.

The rest of this year, I will be working on Christmas presents for everyone. Not sure what I’m going to do for all but will have to get busy and decide.

Have a wonderful thanksgiving and appreciate who and what you have!

Clean Your Refrigerator Day

When I found out it is Clean Your Refrigerator Day, I realized that my fridge could use a cleaning. I took out the drawers, washed them and wiped down the shelves. This a a good idea to do before Thanksgiving gets here. After all you can get rid of any old products and have more room for your Thanksgiving groceries and leftovers. So get to it and do a little refrigerator cleaning.

Veterans’ Day

Mac & I met in Louisiana while he was serving in the U.S. Army. We moved to California to help his grandparents with a hope of serving at Fort Irwin. As the military was downsizing at the time, they gave him an honorable discharge so we could  move out here where we still are today.  So on this Veteran’s Day I would like to thank all veterans for their sacrifice and dedication. Please join me!

Decorating Started

I have been slowly decorating inside the house.  Here is a couple of pictures of the bathroom. You will notice that the main colors (yellow, rust, gray & white) are still there but accented with black, purple and orange.

 

Next to the kitchen. I don’t like the way the valance is hanging so I’m trying to decide on either a curtain rod or maybe just a better piece of twine.

Here are my pot holders.

And just to make you feel welcome:

Halloween Decorations

Last week I said I would start decorating next week.  Well it is next week. Yesterday we took all the plastic bins out of the shop and brought them to the house. We have 5 bins and some jumbo eyes still in the box.

We also have one bin with costumes. I guess I have had this bin too long as it has a crack down the side. I will be going through all these costumes and decorations to decide what I will be hanging and what I will be selling or throwing away.

Beware of . . .

When we first opened the wood shop way back in the 90’s, we tried selling wood signs with no luck. So when we reorganized the shop earlier this year, we found these “Beware of . . .” signs. They needed a little paint touch up but I still think they are a great decoration any time but especially for Halloween. What do you think?
