An evening at the auction listening to the hum of the auctioneer soothes my soul. Some snippets & details from Friday night.

This went home with me. I have a fascination with old German samplers. This one, loosely translated reads: Have your desires in the Lord and He will give you the wishes of your heart. Love that!

bracelet alert

A few new goodies on etsy. Enjoy your week!


I'm adding this title to my resume. Last night, had a yummy dinner with my sister, then we went back to her place for a little beauty fun. My sister, (being the thrifty gal that she is) wanted me to highlight her hair. There are no photos for evidence, but I haven't laughed that hard in awhile. Pulling strands of hair through the plastic bonnet with what-looks-to-be a crochet hook is funny...plain & simple...funny.

Um yeah, this week I get a really nice e-mail from a gal who would like to sell her vintage buttons...would I be interested!? How lucky am I...seriously!? So today, a 9-lb. box of buttons shows up. Forget the laundry, forget the vacuuming...I've got button playing to tend to! Thanks, Sherry!

A busy week at work ahead and lots to pray about for our church & school. Tonight's mission: try to relax.

This tea from The Republic of Tea is so yummy!
