Saturday, we went to the 3-friends sale near Salem.
First, we headed to Molly Mo's-just gorgeous! I loved her style-she did a great job of display. I found these treaures here.
Finally, we made it to Tarte's. By the time we got there it was picked over but I could tell that there had been some great stuff. But I did find these 2 victorian chairs that I fell in love with. Are they too shabby to be chic? I just thought they needed me (or do I need them?)
All 3 ladies were soo hospitable-
it was great fun to meet new friends.
I have to tell you about something that Miss Gracie's has done for me. I am a very reserved and shy person and sometimes (OK most of the time:)not all that social-I kind of like being by myself. But since I've been doing this, I find myself coming out of my shell. It's like a whole new me. Lisa, you don't know how big of a thing that was for me to do...to put my hand out to you to introduce myself. I'm soo glad I did.
Being to these sales reminded me how much fun it is to have them-so they encouraged me to do it again. Soo, I have set the date and am working on all of the details.
Stay tuned ofr more details to follow for the next Miss Gracie's and Friends Sale to be held at my home.

We had a wonderful time in Portland celebrating.
~Let me tell you about us~
We were only babies when we got married
How else could it be 28 years?
seems like babies these days...
I love it and it still cheers me up.
which is perfect for me.
He puts up with all of my ideas
bails me out when I get in too deep.
My husband is loyal and faithful.
He loves the Lord and
gives his life to serve others.
My husband is my best friend.
I am blessed.
I'll be back tomorrow to share pics of where we went and what it inspired.

We have been busy pulling items out of the barn
Wednesday, March 5, 2008
this one is primitive & shabby...
but doesn't match my colors as well
this one that I found and have refurbished...
oh ya, there's one more out in the barn waiting to be finished...
I can't keep them all...what's your pick?
Leave a comment and help me to decide:)
so many emotions, so many memories, so many blessings
Last week my daughter called me with the dreaded news-"they can't find a heartbeat." She was 24 weeks.
In an instant, I was taken back: the pain, the empty arms, the years of grief-my pain, my empty arms, my years of grief. And now my firstborn will walk this same path. Oh, I am soo sorry...
Mothers want to fix
everything, you know.
But I can't.
Oh, and it's a girl...our first granddaughter...and she will have your name...I am honored but soo sad...
and so we had a memorial sevice on Monday...to praise our God in whom we have hope... to honor and let the world know that we cherished this little life...I was soo blessed to see all of my children come around their sister...this is what family is for.
Praise be to God...the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in trouble with the comfort we have received from God.
Thanks for reading...I'll be back soon.
