Pretty Stockings on Etsy & Goodwill find!

OMG!! Today has been such a busy day for me! My youngest son, Austin, took his final test for his Driver's Ed class for Segment 1, so over to the neighboring town where they have a Secretary of State office to get his permit (YIKES!!) Yes, I let him drive my car home...but boy if that wasn't the weirdest thing seeing my baby boy behind the wheel driving MY CAR!! Obviously we made it home all safe and sound, lol :) Then there were the several trips to the post office to ship out packages, running to the store to pick up some items for this weekend, etc.... I'm ready for a nap (just kidding!)

I won't be participating this weekend for Pink Saturday, but wanted to show you this pretty pink teapot I found at my local Goodwill store a couple of days ago. It has some crazing on it, which I think gives it some character, but there are no other issues with it....I like it!




Here are 4 pretty Christmas stockings that I currently have listed in my Etsy Store....if anyone is interested in purchasing one, and you don't have an Etsy account, just send me an email (you'll find it on my profile page), and I can easily remove that item from my listings, and send an invoice directly thru Paypal (if you have a Paypal account)






Wishing everyone out here in Blogland a VERY SAFE & HAPPY 4TH OF JULY WEEKEND!!

OH my! What a milestone for your son and you!! I remember how strange it was to see my son driving the first time. It was even weirder to see him driving my other son! Have a great weekend!

Hi sweet Brenda, I haven't been able to bring myself to do the holiday thing yet. Your stockings are gorgeous and you are smart to have them ready to go. I love the linens on the second one, very nice and the colors are perfect. You did it again with the teapot find. Your Goodwill must be the best!! Have a safe and happy 4th, Char
