Happy ODD DAY... 050709

HAPPY "ODD DAY "!~ 050709

Just a piece of useless trivia I heard on the morning news this morning. It only occurs 6 times a Century..when the DAY/MONTH/YEAR are all odd numbers that are consecutive and it will happen next June on 060810.. Now you have that to look forward to next June!!! Don't you feel so much smarter already??? Hey they may use that question on a game show and you will know the answer!!! lol

I haven't been posting much because I have been sewing up a storm. I did sell some things on eBay and now have some more things listed and do have lookers so maybe things will pick up there for me.!! My mom's antique shop is also having a spring open house at the end of the month so I have been trying to get things done for that too!!

I just love the crow pillows and hope that they turn out to be good sellers for me. They are listed on eBay too!! Go take a peek and see what I have been up too. My laundry pile is telling me I need to take a break for a day and get some wash done. :0)



These pinwheels are listed too, I had a lady ask for set right after the auction went off so I got busy and made more, I have three more sets almost done, just waiting for the bells to rust. My DH even went to Hobby Lobby and got more for me!! He is a keeper!! lol





I tried my hand at making this pantry/vanity box. I really like it but haven't listed it yet, I may save it for the show, but then again if someone wants it, it can go now!!! I lined it with some pretty tissue paper and make it look shabby. It is pretty.

My poor DH, as most of you know he has been in and out of work, mostly out, all year. We are struggling and he has about given up hope. He was just in here talking to me and said the he .." I have NOTHING to hope for anymore. I have been told "NO" so many times in the past two months I just don't know what to do anymore.". Just made me tear up and just rips at my heart. He has called and called and called, but just keeps getting the same answer..."it will pick up"...but not soon enough for us. I'm at a loss and not sure what is going to happen. I keep praying that things will get better. He just can't sit and watch it happen anymore. I feel so badly for him, he thinks he is letting us all down. Please keep us and all the other families that are struggling in your prayers, we all need it!!!



Until my next post, have a great day !!

Joleen, don't lost your hope and faith. Psalms 23 tells us we walk THROUGH the valley. There's no camping there, no resting there, no stopping....just walking through. I keep praying for you guys and know that it's going to work out according to God's purpose. Keep the faith!!!
