Photo Day

Ethel Mae's package is on its way from Whiskers and Dimples. (Connie don't let her peek). I have all my packages and cards mailed. My kitchen and dining room are clean. My potpourri pots have been cleaned and changed to lavender for spring. I am changing my indoor decorating to spring so goodbye snowmen see you next year. Maybe with changing the season in my home Mother Nature will surprise me with one last blast of winter with a snowfall. Hope everyone has had a wonderful day.

And who then is willing to consecrate his service this day unto the Lord? 1 Chronicles 29:5

It doesn't seem to me that it is money, or time, or strength, or talent, that is lacking, it is the consecrated heart. A heart that is given first to Christ, and secondly, to His work, whatever form it may take, or whatever may be the door that opens.



The top of Bud's (iguana) house was a catch-all for things so I cleaned it off and Dimples the cat thought she was hiding from me by sitting on top of some of my picnic baskets. She did not like having me cleaning everything today.
This is a bench by my back door. It is usually piled with items I have brought in from the car or things that need to be mailed or taken to the shed. In my cleaning today I cleaned it off and put things away and decided to give it a good polish. At least one entryway is clean and looking uncluttered.
I got these books, a pair of jeans, a queen size flannel sheet, 2 pillow cases, and 4 placemats for a grand total of $2.46 at my favorite thrift store on Saturday. The manager there is a sweet lady and always gives me a deal when I go up to pay for my finds. The horse book and the one below it are for my granddaughter Gabby.

This is a electric teapot I picked up at the flea market Sunday for $1.00 and it actually works! I also got 5 aprons for $1.00 each that I will be giving as Christmas gifts. A almost new pair of tennis shoes for $2.00 and a brand new pair of wrangler jeans for $2.00. I even got some nice big carrots, celery and green onions for $1.50 for all. It was a nice day.

Ethel Mae is going to be so...excited I can't even tell you!! Those are her favorite balls you have included. For some reason she will not play with any other kind. Don't worry I can keep a secret! I will make sure I get a picture.

You got some wonderful goodies at the thrift store. That sounds like so much fun.

Have a good day,
Connie

It sounds like you know how to find bargains. I got a youth bed for my granddaughter at a garage sale for $ 5.00 yeserday. It has rails and is low to the ground. She is ready for a bed of her own. Good luck with your spring cleaning.

Heather Smith said...

I hear those Wrangler Jeans are the best! I mean I work for Wrangler so of course they are!!! LOL! Hope you're having a great day, Peggy! Your house looks like it would be so pretty!

I don't know whether I'm inspired or despairing, reading about all your cleaning successes. You make the rest of us look bad (well, ME, anyway!).

My cleaning efforts usually go like this: "Family, I've cleaned the table. The table is now officially a 'no-clutter' zone. Please don't set stuff there. Thank you for your co-operation."

Then two days later my speech is "Honey, would you please shove this stuff to one side and help me set the table?"
