Quik Post

Just a quick post since I have been neglecting my blog.  First I should have posted this last Monday, but I did do the drawing and Miss Suzy of Georgia Peachez won the blog giveaway and she has already received it.  Now I need to get something together for August.

Also thanks to everyone for your purchases for the CSSTeam Christmas in July promotion.  I am getting everything mailed out today, I got a little behind with some unexpected company over the weekend and then my mom took sick and is in the hospital.  She has had a rough 6 years battling colon cancer, emphysema, gout, and now she is on dialysis and every week it seems to be something else wrong. 

And last I am trying to figure out how to put blog buttons on my blog.  Heidi of Everyday Cookies gave me a few pointers.  I did get the lollishops button on there, but I dont think its "clickable" (or whatever). 

Hopefully I can catch up this week on my blog!!

Back from Vacation

Well, we have been back from Florida for a week now and I am still behind, but I might as well realize that it is going to stay that way until the kids go back to school.  We had a good trip, left at 4:30 am on a Friday and stopped in Savannah and spent a few hours walking around.  I had to stop in Vintage General, which is a shop that Jen from Sweet Eye Candy mentioned on her blog, and let me tell you that have some awesome things, I wasnt going to buy anything, but did come out with a bagful.  Florida was great, I managed to visit with most of my friends and ex-coworkers.  Basically we just went to the beach every day (and night) and visited.  My daughter is afraid of heights, but she did manage to go up in the lighthouse...203 steps and 175 feet high, great views.  Of course, my boys charged ahead up the spiraling steps ignoring my yelling to "Wait".....this is the lighthouse at Ponce Inlet in Daytona Beach.

The puppies thrived while we were gone and our neighbor loved taking care of them, but I cant say that much for my black lab.  He wouldnt eat, kept running to our back door looking for us.  Needless to say, he was a bit skinny when we got home, and he had bald spots.  So I gave him a bath and have been feeding him double trying to get him back up to his normal weight.  He was so sad!!

I did hit a few thrift stores in Daytona and got some bargains.

I have managed to squeeze in a few hours of crafting, the little glittered wreath is for the CSSTeam Christmas in July Promo on July 25.

And I am still messing around with the Tussie Cones, these are my 3rd and 4th try and will be in my Etsy shop.

Now for the July Giveaway.  In keeping with the Spirit of the CSSTeam Christmas in July promo on July 25, I am giving away these 2 ornaments.  I will pick the winner on July 21.  Just leave a comment..Good Luck!
