salute to the week
Hello Monday...where did that week go. It flew by....
Last week was not the smoothest...sick kids, Aidan running 103 temp for 2 days, sick hubby, dreary weather, and worried about some friends who are dealing with some personal and health challenges, but hey we made the best of things - we found some fun, did some good work, got some projects done around the house.
Hello to feeling better and good bye germs!
Hello giant flag, I salute you! I am married to a very patriotic fella and he fell in love with this creation by Ab the Flagman at first sight....
Hello being married to a Virgo who actually measures, and then measures again - this is not my strong point (I don't read directions either)...
We finally hung Ab's flag purchased a while back from the Jeanine Taylor Folk Art Gallery in Sanford where we do out annual "heART of winter" event.
We'll be there again on 3/1 & 3/2...
Hello to working together...
Hello helpful kids...like some household chores, it takes a while to get it done - renting a scaffold etc, but Char was ace assistant...
Hello to my little glasses girl, found out this week she needs them all the time...sigh...sports goggles ordered too! She reminded me I always say they are jewelry for the face....a sunny outlook for sure.
Hello silliness and good humor to make all things tolerable.
Rory provided comic relief, first handcuffing himself to the scaffold with his Houdini playset cuffs and demo-ing a dramatic breakout...
...then saluting as we hing this new spin on Old Glory.
Hello to what's new at Earth Angels and my helpers and and a big thanks to Oliver and Harold. They added more than 150 vintage items added to the site this week, many, many have sold.
Within hours of posting, the offerings were decimated -- the Bakelite was snatched up and oodles of the 1950s holiday loot, some textiles and small household gods too.
Hello to more work to do...Another 100 items will post by the end of this week. Keep an eye on the offerings and if you order before Wednesday with code LOOT15 at checkout, we'll take 15% off any vintage goods order.
Hello to all of you out there in America and beyond...
