I have just been horrible...

being sick and for not blogging!! I just need to get with the program here. Besides my neck and back, I came down with a stupid cold and sore throat. Let me tell ya, the cough just hangs and hangs on and will not go away! We have been having some pretty decent Spring weather so I went out in it and that was NOT a good! Big mistake! Ended up down and out again. Now I'm back to just the cough again but that is certainly enough.

I am also very late on posting this giveaway that I won from Christine over at Preferably Prim. I love it all so much! She even included chocolate hearts in that little ditty bag!!

I went to the Monthly Estate Sale and that is when I ended up getting sick for the 2nd time but I did get some goodies.

All this wonderful DMC floss and a bag of buttons


These sconces are pewter, I have never seen pewter ones before.

Not sure what this little suitcase bag was used for. We are thinking maybe a jewelers box?? But I love it!

Nothing else has been happening around here. Just been doing alot of cross-stitching. Can't do much else while sick or else it's just that I don't want to do anything else...ha!!

Sorry for such a boring post!

Glad you felt better enough to post :)
I love the things you found at the estate sale - especially the spice cupboard and chalkboard. The suitcase is a keeper just because it's so unusual! Hope you keep feeling better!

It seems that everyone is getting the bug and all are complaining of the never ending cough.
Take it easy and hope you're feeling better soon.
Those are some awesome finds that you have there.

Hope you are on the road to full recovery. Not a good time to be sick. The sun is going to be shining, snow will be melted, grass will be greening.....
Looks like you did real well for yourself at the sale. I see makeovers in your future.

Poor you, Brenda - you really have had a rough time but I hope and pray you're over the worst and feeling better! So glad you got your goodies safely.

I hope you are feeling better Brenda! Love all your goodies from Christine. You always seem to hit the jack pot on your estate sale trips!!

Sorry to hear you are under the weather Brenda... hope you are on the mend now. Be careful everyone I know that has that cold has ended up the bronchitis or pneumonia... it is a nasty one.

I can't believe all the gorgeous things you found... I am literally drooling over your spice box and that suitcase, how unique.

Hope you have a great day and you feel better soon.

Hugs, Deb

I know what you mean about that cough. I had mine for 6 weeks after the cold was gone and I got so tired of people asking me if I was getting sick! NO... just trying to get rid of that cough. I hope it's finally gone by now.

Congrats on your win from Christine, wonderful goodies!

Ah dang! Jackpot on the floss, WOW! I would get so excited and smile for days if I came across that kind of stash! I store mine in those plastic baggies with the metal rings. It's been a great system for me. I would love to have a store like that by me. You are always finding some neat things there, love all your finds!
