It's my Birthday and I can do what I want!

 An estate sale, a FREE Mocha from Caribou Coffee and Pumpkin bread. What else could a girl want for her perfect birthday morning?

 Had a gift card so got some new music
I don't need these but they sounded good and I have lots of time to read now.

Oh yeah, 
I am unemployed. 
Lowes put several of us on a leave of absence.  
my husband got a great job! 
So, all is well and I am enjoying my 2nd week of being a kept woman.
I have never not worked since college so this is fun.
I really needed a break and if you have followed all that we have been through I think you will agree I should take some time to relax.
This was my plan for my birthday today anyway and these are some of the items I purchased.
 Antique Yo Yo's Not sure what I'll sew them to yet but I think they are adorable. They are laying on a mans shirt I found at a thrift store I passed after the estate sale.
 Close up of fabric in shirt. Will Re~purpose this!
 Loved the vintage print in these cafe curtains and look at those awesome ruffles!  Can't wait to re~purpose these too!

 These napkins will probably be mine for awhile. Colors perfect for my living room
 Great box for my supplies :)

 2 addictions! Will have my friend make me a bracelet with the watch faces and typewriter keys.

 All in all it was a great day but I need a nap.  It has been rainy. That is why the images are not so good. Not much light to work with but I really wanted to share my finds and good news with you.

I really do not have a good excuse to be gone from here any longer except that I will be very busy sewing with all my new fabric finds.  I have several shows coming up so lots to do! Some creations will show up in my Etsy shop also, soon.


  1. I thought I had posted a comment but don't see it - love the watches and typewriter keys - I have looked for some but have not been able to find old ones. One of those things i just will have to be on the hunt for

  2. Happy, happy late birthday. May your year be full of happy surprise and much laughter.
