Still Sweet After All These Years.

I need to welcome one more new follower I am so very excited I really can't believe it.
This past week was crazy busy and at the same time heart breaking. a very very good friend of mine is selling and moving to Florida. She is the most amazing person I know and I will miss her so much. This past week was so hot and I gave her as much time as I could to help her set up her estate sale. Butttt we have mostly the same taste and it was very dangerous for me to be there. First she crafts all the time and she dabbles in rug hooking so I got wool and books, and more books
Then I tried to choose things that would remind me of her every time I looked at it. This mirror will for sure, first she loves green and this mirror screams Kathy. Oh yea another Kathy but with a "K".
She gave me a family cook book from her aunt Marie, I see lots of things Kathy has made for her amazing dinner parties.

And she felted this little guy. Doesn't he just make you laugh out loud. Every time we are with her we laugh and have so much fun.

This wreath was made by her mother who is so wonderful and sweet.

And this Christmas post card was also her moms. I love it.

I spotted this small frame. I have a mini picture of a relative in the potato fields and they deserve to be in this frame. Potato picking is hard work.

I got so much more I would be blogging for days. She has a summer home in Maine so I will get a chance to see her then, but the Christmas dinner parties, and her just lets get together will be so missed.
I went to my booth today didn't do so great last month but I was unable to get there much. I didn't have to pay rent and had a little left over so I treated myself to this Easter decoration. I love it. and it was marked way down.

and when I walked in my house from helping my friend. I found these. My husband is the sweetest after all these years. I guess I will keep him.

I am working on a gift for my daughter's birthday which I will show later. I went to Lowe's and they have an oops section I always check. 24.99 paint for 5.00 found the color I wanted. When I checked out I got a rebate for 5.00 so the price of my gallon of velspar paint 0 great huh!
Have a great week!

Looks like you got lots of treasures to remind you of your friend. You can have coffee together using Skype. Almost like being together.
How sweet of your hubby to try and brighten a sad day! :)

I'm so sorry to hear that a good friend is moving, but the fact that she has a summer home in Maine and you can see her in the summer is a plus. AND ~ ~ ~ you have so many treasures to remind you of Kathy!!!
I love your little Easter treasure. How sweet. Speaking of sweet - flowers from hubby are beautiful.
