Awesome Find!

So I was browsing around this sort-of consignment shop and found this fabulous set of dishes. I am hoping they are depression glass (not quite sure how to tell) but will love them just the same if not. This is a 6 piece Snack Set (that is what it was labeled) and comes with six plates and six little mugs. These are gorgeous clear green glass and actually quite heavy. I have never seen a set like this. There is a little indented area on the plate to hold your mug. So if you are at a little party and having appetizers and punch these would be perfect! We all know how hard it is to eat and hold your drin! ! k at the same time if not sitting! No chips, cracks or anything. I really love these and the price was a steal. I have a small china collection that started with Wedgewood china. Still waiting for the nice china cabinet to display them all in though.

I know Halloween is almost here but this card is to fabulous to pass up. You can check this out and other GREAT items here !

Looking for answers....

Ok Ladies, I have a couple of questions for you. Hopefully you will take the time to respond. I would really love to know the sizes you normally buy in jewelry. So if you could comment and answer the following I would really appreciate it.

1. What size necklace do you wear/buy?

2. What size bracelet do you wear/buy?

This information would be very helpful to me.

National Mental Health Day

Have a fabulous STRESS FREE day!!!! PLEASE DO YOUR PART Today is one of the many National Mental Health Days throughout the year.
You can do your bit by remembering to send this to at least one unstable person.
My job is done!Life is too short for drama & petty things.
So laugh insanely, love truly and forgive quickly!

From one unstable person to another... I hope everyone is happy in your head - we're all doin' pretty good in mine.

Love me some BOOTS!

I absolutely love these!

Just wanted to let everyone know that DSW ( has a fairly new website and some hot shoes. They are having a Boot Sale right now. Check it out!

People are so AMAZING!

I have to say that more and more people just amaze me....and it is not good. Last night we had our Obama '08 sign stolen out of our yard. I have to admit that I thought this may happen, but people seriously why would you take it?? We do have a right to display it and no we are not forcing our opinons on others. I see McCain/Palin signs all the time. Heck our neighbors have all kinds of signs in there yards right now for our local politicans. I just want to say that I am extremely disappointed and with that I think I will stop by and get 3 more signs!

Rollerskating Weekend FUN!

Ok, just a little note. I took my two kids rollerskating this weekend. They are 9 and 5. This was there first time skating and they did fabulous. I thought they were going to be on the floor MOST of the time and boy was I wrong. I was really proud how well they did. On another note, I skated as well. I forgot how much FUN it is. When I was younger I went skating every Friday and Saturday night. What great exercise. My shins were killing me after two times around!

I've been TAGGED!!

So I have been tagged by Kimberly of She has a fabulous store on Etsy. She creates beautiful cards and some really cool felted crafts.

The rules when you are tagged are quite specific. You must share six facts about yourself that most people don't know! I will be looking for all you tagged folks to respond, so here we go. Ready or not, here are six things about me that may or may not be interesting, but they are facts nonetheless:

♦I love to read. My husband often dislikes this because I become so consumed by a book that I just can not put it down. I am not reading anything currently as I have read everything in my small library and frankly have not had time as of late.

♦I am an EXCELLENT sales person. I can pretty much sale you anything. I guess this is from years working in retail. I have excellent customer service and well I am very well mannered ( you may not always notice this, nor may I always show this) which actually does MOST of the work for you.

♦I LIKE Hip Hop music. Don’t know what it is, but that has been my music of choice since I was about 12. Now I also like alternative, rock, blues, pretty much everything, but I prefer Hip Hop. Maybe it’s the beat, that’s makes you want to get up and move.

♦My dream job is to work for the FBI. Again, something from childhood. This has been an interest for quite some time. You plan things and think that is how your life is going to work out or hope, and it changes along the way. I like my changes though, I know that I am no where near where I want to be with my life as far as career and such, but I am HAPPY and that means a lot right now!

♦I actually enjoy the Elderly. There is just something about them. I love to sit and listen to all they have to say. So many life lessons and experience. I could sit and talk for hours.

♦I can not stand WHITE NOISE. Oh boy, and I mean I really can not stand it. I classify this as the fan in the bathroom…it kills me if someone leaves it on. The dryer, vacuum, hair dryer, any and all bothers the heck out of me. Not sure why and I know that this soothes some people, but not me.

Lastly, I am a TALKER. I mean really I CAN and WILL talk for hours. I have passed this on to my two children and now they can, will, and do talk for hours and ask billions of questions.
