My baby boy.....and one of my latest offerings :)

This stitchery is currently listed on Ebay ( stitchinthedayaway ) ~ One of my last holiday stitcheries for the year!! I have had a lot of fun this season stitchin up Christmas goodies, but I guess it's time to move on to winter & valentines!!

Well.....not exactly, but he is like a big baby!! Just took this picture of Kyser, our weimerianer lounging on the couch last night!! We rescued him 8 yrs ago today & though he has his issues, he has brought so much love & happiness to our home!!! He suffers from anxiety, but really who doesn't & it's hard to say what his life was like for the year before we got him!!
Have a great wednesday ~ It is chilly here this morning!!

Busy wrapping presents......

I've been busy this morning wrapping presents & trying to figure out who I am finished w/ & what else I need to buy!!! Some people are just soooooo hard to buy for, but I'm not a big fan of giving gift cards.....a little too impersonal for me unless I know they like them :)

Hope everyone is well & just about ready for will be here before we know it!!
More soon......

Our first snow of the season......

Well ~ Just as I finished my post yesterday, I looked outside & saw it starting to snow !!!! I just love it, probably because I get to stay home most days & don't have to drive in it !!! We just got a dusting to maybe an inch, but we were still happy to see it.... makes all the Christmas lights outside seem more "magical" in a way!!
I'm sure by late January I will be tired of it & anxiously waiting for spring to get here in PA , but until then we will enjoy it.....
Have a great day!!!

Our Christmas Tree

Good morning all ~

Hopefully your weekend is off to a good start!! I am planning a busy day of crafting hoping to catch up & get a few things listed on Ebay & Etsy ~ My shoppes are getting empty !!

Wishing for a little snow to go w/ the cold weather, but haven't seen a flake yet :( I'm sure it will be here before we know it......

Here is a picture of our main Christmas tree, I have them all over the house & will share some more pics a little later......I found this tree at a local thrift store for only $25 ~ I was sooooooo excited!! Seen the same one at Lowes for close to $300 ~ It is prelit & there was a row of lights out in the center, but we fixed it & it is good as new!!!! Love it.........

Enjoy the day......

Time sure flys!!

I swear it was just the weekend & here it is again!! I hope you all had a very Happy Thanksgiving w/ your love ones around.....Ours was pretty simple. Had a very nice dinner @ Granny & Pap's. Everything was delicious as always, I swear she is the best cook & Paps coleslaw is to die for!!! He makes it every time we get together for dinner cause he knows how much we all love it :)

I have a busy weekend ahead, the guys in the family are to leave this afternonn for our hunting camp & be gone till tuesday evening. Little bonding time before hunting starts on monday. It's always a good time for them & of course us ladies hang out all weekend & go shopping !! On sunday my sister, mom, & I will head to Granny's to help them put up their tree. We started this last year when they said they weren't going to put one up, so we decided to do it for them!! You can't not have a tree up for Christmas!!! I have them all over the house!!! Just love it!

Anyways ~ Have a fun & safe weekend......

Getting ready for Thanksgiving!!

Ths year, I have not been feeling to well & am still unsure what is going on after a trip to a specialist, xrays, meds, who knows... I go back in a few weeks to see where we stand , but I am thankful I am so close to my family!! They have really been there for me this year more than ever & I so appreciaite it !! My husband is the best, though we just got married about 6months ago, we have been together for 9 & 1/2 yrs. now & I just love him so much!!!

For Thanksgiving , We will be traveling to my Granny & Pap's house ( about 20 mins. away ) where my parents & sister will also be. We have a very small family, but it is so special to me ~ My Granny suffers from very bad arthritis & has a hard time getting around so every meal she prepares means so much more to all of us, but she does get a lot of help from Pap & it is always soooooooo good :)
My dad's parents are both gone now, so it is just an uncle & my cousin on his side, but we try to stay close. He has another brother & a sister, but lets just say they don't come around & I'll leave it at that!!

So I hope you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving w/ your loved ones & cherish every moment!!

Till next time.......

Wow, it's the weekend already!!!!

Boy, this week has flown by & I have not much to show for it!! Been busy w/ lots of doctors appointments early in the week & was running around w/ my mom today. Stopped by our booth at the local Antique Mall, paid the rent, & took a few goodies over to sell !!! Stopped & got my hair cut then we went to lunch :) It's always a good time hangin out w/ Mom ~ I lived in MD for about 6 years w/ my now hubby & we didn't get to see each other as often as we would have liked!! I'm so blessed to have a great relationship w/ my parents!!!
Tomorrow I am off to go shopping w/ my sister. She wants to do some Christmas shopping for my mom so hopefully we can find something good!! Also hard as she is a little picky :)
I am feeling good today, waiting for some x-ray results & still on some antibiotics, but today was a good day & I'm hoping tomorrow will be too......
Have a great weekend everyone, whatever your plans may be.......
Blessings to you ~

The weekend is finally here!!!

I am so happy it is finally the weekend & what a lovely one it is supposed to be here in PA ~ This has been such a warm fall . I think we will decorate the outside of the house tomorrow & take advantage of the sunshine & 60's ~ We normally are stringing lights w/ numb fingers & layers of clothes on.......

I've been trying to get caught up on my stitchin, but this darn Lymes has definatly shown its evil face again. Just got my bloodwork results & it is still positive after the suggested treatment. Now I am off to find a specialist that I hope can fix me ~

Here is a pic of one of my newest listings on Ebay ~

I hope you all have a happy & healthy weekend & hopefully I will be posting some more pics soon of some of my new goodies!!!

Another day, another back ache......

Has anyone else out there been diagnosed w/ Lyme Disease?? I was back in June of this year & did my 28 day treatment of antibiotics, but recently in the past month & a half I have been dealing w/ lots of backaches, headaches, stiff neck, etc.
After putting it off for long enough, I will be going back to the doctors tomorrow to see if I can get any answers!!
Just curious if anyone else has been going through this????

Has anyone else noticed some of their prices are ridiculous???? Then onto look for a few new shirts for fall & winter. I did mangage to find a few & of course some more candles!!! I can never have enough candles & even started some Christmas shopping too!!
Now, back to stitchin so I can replenish the $$ I just spent :)
