Another Awesome

market find

 when I saw this I knew it would look fabulous on the chest of drawers I got from Grandma's
could see the dresser stripped back to the wood, and then giving the dresser and the mirror a few coats of varnish 
now that I have the mirror sitting on the dresser I'm thinking maybe painted in a soft white is the way to go
Have created a bit of a dilemma for myself
do I???? don't I?????
 will have plenty of time to think about which way I will go as the weather is not suitable for painting it's either 
toooo cold 
toooo wet

After lunch I took Miss Anna out to a friends for a sleep over and delivered a little train I put together from a die cut to one of my favourite customers
When I got home I hit the sewing machine got 4 Aprons done and appliqu├ęd Stars and Hearts on  the front of some Gro-Suits for the Market today

Love a Looooooong Weekend

there should be more of them!!!
More time to get organised (what ever that is) for the coming week and that is always a good thing
Talking of good things have you checked out Scraphappy Kats FNC
You still have time to get an entry in

This is the example I put together on Friday afternoon

This is a photo of my Darling Husband it was taken the year before we got married
(no wonder he's singing the blues)
34 years yesterday
What a Roller Coaster  ride it's been lots of ups and downs
There is nobody else on this earth that I would have wanted to take the ride with
May we continue to ride on that Roller Coaster for many more years to come

Enough of me prattling on I'm sure you all have better things to do than listen to me and I hope one of them is to enter the FNC which you can do 

Happy Scrappin'

A Weeeeeeeee post with pictures

I hope this post finds you high and dry
I know in some parts of Queensland New South Wales and Victoria you are battling flood waters
I had my own little problem with water on Monday we had so much rain on Sunday night and early Monday that our drainage couldn't cope with all the water and some got into the garage (creating space) so I spent Monday sorting out that little drama. It wasn't too bad this time, has been much worse in the past.
Consequently what I had planned for the week went pear shaped before I had even started!!!
But I did get the Friday Night Challenge done for Scraphappy Kats

It is a word challenge and the word is

Today I spent the day at the Market 

I love my Sundays at the Market even when I make very little (like today)
because I get to spend time with Dee, Lizzy, June and these 2 crazy ladies
