Enter to Win!!! Valentine Giveaway!!

I recently participated in a Valentine swap with friends on P&R group-what fun that is! Well, I made one extra Valentine just to share with you! Leave me a comment (you have until February 2, at midnight) and I will enter you into a drawing for a Valentine of your own. I know the picture isn't the clearest, but here in Oregon, it hasn't been the brightest light lately. I fell in love with this lady's picture. I know, I know, she's old and very, very wrinkled, but I am convinced she is someone's dear sweetheart. She and I have gotten to know one another, as I made several of these to send out to my swapping friends. You can be one, too!
I'm listed at Bloggy Giveaways!

My Spring Rabbit

I had so much fun making this little guy! I found him in an old BH&G book, and just fell in love! Thanks to Patti M. for helping me get him together!

Yippee, they came!

My daughters and I are dying to try out our soldered art projects and have been waiting for the mailman to bring us some glass slides! They came today, so now we're in for fun! Another project, LOL.
I finally found where I put the vintage Valentines that I usually put on my old window hanging on a beam between my living room and dining room. I had mounted them are cardstock and held them in place with photo corners so I didn't have to use glue. I love old Valentines! I've bought some for the purpose of using for scrap, then can't part with them. I guess I need to at least make a scrapbook, but my window is a good place for some of them and I can enjoy them. My goal is to have them up this week. My other goal is to complete my Valentine swap projects from my PP&R group and get them mailed out. I'm having fun with those. Valentines remind me of childhood days, the beautiful happy colors, the wonder of getting the cards in the "mail" envelopes that we had hanging on our desks and EVERYONE put one in. Not like how it happens on Charlie Brown, where he gets no Valentine. I just feel like crying when I think of someone not getting a Valentine and the other kids do. So hopefully I'll have pics to share of my Valentines real soon!

Estate Sale Tomorrow!! It's About Time!!

Well, I believe the lady is still living, so I can be glad for that. BUT, I LOVE estate sales, garage sales, you know....junk! And TOMORROW there is finally an estate sale in our area! Yippee!! I am definitely not loaded with dollars this time of year, especially w/Randy having been out of work waiting on his new house building project to get started (paperwork glitches, ya know?). But, he's back to work, and all I'm going to be looking for is little junk. Cheap junk. OK, if there is another great deal on a piece of furniture, it will be hard to pass, but, just getting to go through junk is fun. So, first thing in the morning, I'm getting in line to go to this sale, and there better be something for me!!
