Tired, but a good tired!



Yesterday and today, I worked in our back yard---and a little in the front--the guy who mows our lawn has been trying to help me, but it was becoming REALLY overgrown, mostly with volunteer green stuff--vines, ferns, stuff I don't even know the name of, but it was beginning to look like one of those scary houses with stuff growing all over it. Now I have a full green refuse can, and 3 huge piles of stuff in the backyard, waiting till the trash is picked up and I can refill! You should have seen me with the electric hedge trimmer---I'm lucky I came out alive!

Last night I listed an old picture frame that I'd painted and glued vintage buttons, an old metal pennant label, and a plastic man from an old train setup. It even has a real old picture in it! Then, today, I just listed a bracelet I've been working on for a while, ripped out a million times --no, really---I still don't know if I'm happy with it, but maybe someone will fall in lust with it and buy it!

The ebw midsummer madness sale will be over at midnight tonight---no sales for me, though, and I've already lowered prices, but..........

I've been making a Christmas ball wreath for second daughter--I owed her one, 'cause I'd already made one for first daughter! Sure can't play favorites in this family!
When I get it finished, I'll post it--right now, everything is on an old sheet in the middle of the living room - the only big space I have to work on it.

I bet you are tired. I bet you are glad you got some beading in there too. I get to mow our yard because grandson won't do it and hubby hurt his back at work about 5 weeks ago.

That bracelet is very unique and interesting. I'll bet it takes someone's fancy!
