Organization finally!

I don't sew very much, but I did have a basket from a LONG time ago.  In the basket went thread, ribbon, rulers, embroidery thread/hoops, elastic, etc.  It was a mess!  And then, one of the hinges broke, so I would have to hold the top on any time I tried to sew.  In short, it was in bad need of replacing.
 A tangled mess of stuff!
 I happened to be next door to a JoAnn's Fabrics store and went in to see what they had.  As luck would have it, baskets were 50% off!  I grabbed the biggest one I could find and set home to do a little organizing.
 It's nice to have a little organization if your life once in a while!
 The inside of the basket is still full, but most stuff is in bags/boxes and much easier to find in a short minute.  Now if only I could find time to sew!!

Halloween funny

On my route to take our youngest to school, I passed this house and did a double take, back in October.  The guy had these skeletons and had fun re-arranging them every week.  One week they were camping.  Another week they were mowing the lawn, raking etc.  It was fun to see what they would be doing every week.  Guess he had a little too much time on his hands, but we enjoyed the humor of it.

Blog friends unite!

So the story goes that I happened by this lady at Georgetown!  I recognized her right away as one of Maxine's girls (Jeanne).  It was nice to finally get acquainted with her a bit.  And in case you're counting, that's 3 out of the 11 that I've met so far, so Maxine, if you are reading this, just another excuse for you to finally make the trip down here!
 The "O's".  And this post is special as I am pretty sure that Jeanne is due to have baby #3 here very soon!  Such cute kiddos too!  Jeanne (& Floyd), come our way again soon!  It was great to meet you!!
