Here we go....go grab a cup of tea...or wine...or coffee...
So, a couple of days before Christmas I am laying in bed, and as usual, I am reading facebook or blogs on my I-phone (which is the easiest thing in the world to use btw) And I see a post from Nicki at The Vintage Farmhouse on facebook.(she's on my sidebar and does a lot of fun stuff on facebook)
It said something like...".I'm so excited...but I can't say why yet. I'm getting 88 of something but I don't want to say what until they are in my truck." So I said, "I want one!"
She sent me a text and said how do you know you want one you don't even know what they are? I told her I was just being funny...cracking myself up. Then I said, "tell me what they are, you know you want to tell someone." She told me, and I did want one!
So I asked a couple of people to go with me and Notaro (Granny Bee) said she'd go. Remember this was a couple of days before Christmas! In a town about an hour away. A busy time. But we went.
I came home with four! Three ladies and a man! Funny. I don't even have a business....
But I've wanted one, (dress form, not business)and I'm thinking about setting up at a few markets this year to sell some vintage stuff I have. We'll talk about that later. Beth and I also did some shopping in the quaint town of Zionsville. It was a fun day.
I forgot to show you this little and simple crafty thing I did. I took a gingerbread hole punch that I bought for half price at Hobby Lobby, and punched out some gingerbread out of grocery sacks. Then I glued them to this bakers twine, and hung them on the bakers rack. It's so cute I still haven't taken it down.
Now....you probably don't remember this...but I told you we had a winter storm after Christmas and it made our driveway very slick. I think I even told you about my Shug almost hitting a tree. But at the time I didn't have a computer so I couldn't download pics. Well, here you are. This is looking out our basement window.
My Shug didn't do the "U"
It was way too crowded. And they usually have a lot of food and drink booths, but this time they only had about four food booths, so the lines were really long.
We ate what food we did get on the window ledge upstairs....
enjoying this view of the circle in Indianapolis.
These ladies were standing by us and my sister said they are us in a few years! We decided even though I'm the one always taking pictures, that in this picture, I was the lady with the drinks, because it was really her camera. Just a silly thing we do.
And lastly...and I haven't been taking pictures because I keep forgetting....but I am working my hiney off trying to get the other house cleaned out by the end of January. It was one of my January goals...and with Marilyn's help, I think I'm going to do it!
Sooo....I think I'm about as caught up as I'm going to be. Sorry it's so long. I'm anal like this...trying to record everything.
Gonna go to bed now...with my phone...see ya on facebook or your blog.
