I realize that some of my pictures did not come through from my previous page so here are some more pictures....The black horse I had and just added some Christmas decorations around the neck with a festive blanket! The little house I bought at a garage sale, painted and added some trim found at Goodwill!

This Saturday March 17th is my first sale of the season with my friend Barb. You must make it a point to stop and see all the old and new goodies we have! Here are a couple of pictures just to give you and idea of what is going to be for sale! Lots of good stuff! Where? you ask! 1230 Walnut Blvd (east end) and 221 Franklin Ave. Two sales only 1 stop, just think of all the gas you will be saving!!! See you there! What time? 9-2.

I do not know why things happen to us but there has to be a reason. Two days before Christmas this straggly long haired dirty white dog came to my friend (Barb) and I looking for help! Immediately, we fed her and gave her a nice warm home. Within the next few days, we had her groomed and began a long two month battle to make her better! She had some medical issues, we were determined to beat. We walked her, fed her, bought her lots of goodies and some things she needed (diapers, which she hated to put on, but wouldn't you)? All through the vet visits, walks, diaper changes, baths and trips in the car, she never whimpered, moaned or tried to fight back! She was a sweetheart and let us just take care of her. She listened and always tried to go outside to the bathroom (even though she had a few accidents)she did her best! We loved her anyway! Sometimes, she would get picky about her diet and putting on the diaper, she was just a loving dog! The last few days were the toughest, she lost control of her back legs, we thought it was the arthritis but it turned out to be a inoperable tumor on her spine! We were devistated! Everything we tried did not work for this sweet lady! We had to put her to sleep yesterday and besides loosing my father, this has been the hardest thing I have ever done! Why? I keep asking myself and God do things happen like this? There has to be a reason! With this broken heart of mine, I wish someone would give me the answer! I love you Holly and will miss you deeply! (The picture is of one of the walks she went on with the other dogs in the neighborhood and their new sweaters (Holly is the white dog)). I am glad you came into my life, dear friend, but I wish it could of been longer. Even though it hurts, I know you are in a better place.

Moving to a smaller place, need to sell to cabinets I have no use for. Check out my ad on Craig's List for dimension. The smaller green cabinet is made out of 2 crates with 4 drawers (old) and 4 shelves! I use it in the bathroom but can be used really anywhere! It is very heavy and good shape! I am asking $55.00. Also, I have this country cabinet that is great for small places or narrow areas, like hallways or bathrooms, it has a light mustard color with shelves on top and bottom. The back is made from bead back board, including dental molding and plate grooves on top two shelves for display. Text me at 440 813 0527 if interested.

Again ...thinking....I seem to do a lot of that lately, I have these orange pumpkins that seem to have lost their charm! What can I do to change that? Decoupaging would be kind of tough unless I cut material into strips and glue one at a time around the pumpkins. I do not know if I have the patience or talent to be that creative so the next best thing..PAINT THEM! I can do that! Voila! They look pretty good, now I might stencil around them in contrasting colors but I have to see what I can come up with. If I decide to do that, I will be posting more pictures..I have to do some more thinking about that....
Now that winter is here and the garage sales have ended for the season, I like to keep busy doing projects. I was looking through my country magazines and found in the Country Living Magazine an article on decoupaging pumpkins! I thought what a neat idea so I went and bought my Mod Podge and began...well, it is not as easy as it looks! I got this pumpkin pillow on a whim and just hated it! I tried selling it, I tried giving it away but nobody would bite so I thought what could I do with it??? I played around with ideas for a couple of days but because of its shape it would be hard to decoupage it so I decided to paint it a black color and decoupage black checked pumpkins on it (the pumpkins covered up the marks from where I tore the felt eyes and mouth off)it sure was a big improvement! So see if there is something you wish you would not have ever bought, think about what you can do to change it!
