A Special Gift, A Tip, and a Giveaway!



Hi Everyone--
My house is all decorated for fall from the front door throughout all the living spaces...pure fun! And, my daughter Jenny just bought this precious scarecrow "Welcome Sign" for me...I love it and had to share it with you!

I also want to tell you a quick story...

The other day, I went to pick up some furniture...I was at the back of Ashley Furniture (near the pick-up window) and started walking around...when to my amazement, there were various tiny pieces of hardware that were on the ground that had rusted...I was in full swing picking them up so I could start a collection of "rust" elements for my art...If you live near a big furniture store with a pick-up bay at the back, you might want to try it too...I was in "rust" heaven!!! lol

Love,
Cindy

Hi Cindy, hope you are enjoying your visit with Jenny.

Do you know how often I look at things on the ground and wonder if I should pick them up and take them home to make something with? HA!

I love that sparkly friend card you received. So nice to receive surprises from sweet friends.

I am so tired so off to bed now. Best wishes, Tammy

My Grandpa when I was a teenager (long time ago), would make you stop if you were driving with him, so he could go through someone's trash!!! He found many treasures! Darling scarecrows!!

what a wonderful gift to receive.
I love the looks people give when they see someone (like us) giddily scooping up seemingly 'useless' items from the ground! I found a huge coffee can of rusted screws and bolts at a yard sale for 10 cents, it was right by a dumpster, I think it was ready to be disposed of!you should have see the lady's face when I asked the price!

Your scarecrows are gorgeous Cindy. Have been stopped from picking up rusty parts as my husband says I am rubbish collector. He should know as they don't come much rustier than him.....oooh naughty naughty.......lol xx

Cindy~ You are to funny. No furntiture stores like that around here. You received some great stuff this week and very deserving I have to add. Will say a prayer for your friend right now.

Thanks for the visit too. I have been a busy bee. Now I just have to learn how to split time between computer and crafting. Seems I get on computer no crafting gets done and vice versa...
