Special Edition…


We had another storm blow through this evening and it brought cooler temperatures with it.  It was in the upper 90s this afternoon and now it is 74°.  I’m glad to see the cooler temps and the rain, we have another line moving our way and are under a sever thunderstorm warning until midnight.

Okay… enough weather talk.  🙂

My husband and I went flea marketing today.

I found this dish.  I like the way it looks.

It has a diamond cut type pattern on the bottom and vertical cuts on the side walls.  I like too, that it has silver lid.   Believe it or not, I got it for under $3.  The vendor was having a major sale.

I also found an interesting newspaper.

 It was a special edition.

I took a picture and then tried to find out more about it when I got home.   I wasn’t able to find much, but I think it is from 1940 – 1943.  I know it came from Chicago and I’m guessing it is the 25th edition.  It had Chicago 25 in the line right above the bold front page article,


Boy, how times have changed.

Next week, at work, we begin to have to wear our ID/security badges full time.  
I don’t like wearing a lanyard around my neck so I decided to use a zip reel (I guess that’s what you call it).  : )   
They are plain looking so I decide to dress it up.   
I took four felt flower shapes and stitched them together and then super glued them to the reel.  
I’m thinking about making more to change out for the holidays.
Hope all going well in your neck of the woods.  I guess that’s all I have for this evening.
Have a great weekend!
God bless and keep you,

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
