Say it isn't so!!! Boo-hoo!

Well I guess Kris Humphries (aka Mr. Kardashian) got the trick today!!  Kim K. has filed for divorce!!  

Really people are you really that surprised!!  Like you didn't think...oh isn't this her 2nd quickie wedding...oh, but they're just so cute together. 

It will last forever.....well that's a big NOPE!!

I hope you didn't watch the fairy-tale wedding....cause I sure didn't!

Mini Jeweled Frame - gifts

Can you believe that Christmas is two months away?  This year has just flown by.

I love to make ornaments for my Christmas trees or make to give as gifts.  

I thought I'd share this easy gift giving mini frame.

Here is what was used:
Paper craft frames - mini
Jumbo craft marker - white
glue gun

Creating something cute with 4 simple items.

I love these little jewels, and yes that is a medicine bottle!
That's where  I store all of the small  embellishments .
I know I'm not the only one to do this. Right?

I painted the top of the frame and the sides.

Easy peasy!! Then I let it dry. It took about 3 minutes.

This was the hard part. Trying to get all the pieces to fit.
I had to work at it for a bit, it was like a puzzle!
After I figured it out then I just hot glued the jewels down.

So it went from BLAH to WOW!!
These little frames are too cute, you can hang them, add a magnet or put them on  mini frame holders.
Add a pic or a scene of your choosing, it doesn't even have to be Holiday themed.
 You can make these when ever you like and give them away.

I added this little Winter scene.  Cute....right?

Happy Halloween!!

Happy Halloween! 

I do not own this picture

Everyone be safe and enjoy the night!! I can not wait to see all the neighborhood children and their costumes. Some of my nieces and nephews will be stopping by as well, I can't wait to see them!! 

What is the best/worst item you ever received while trick or treating?

My Best: A little black kitten, I was 4! 
I named her Kitty and I had her for a year.

My Worst: 10 pennies from the sweet old lady down the street!  
I probably received a total of 70¢ from her through the!

Ms. Betty and her bad eating habits!!

I introduced my fur-babies a couple of months ago here.   And they both got hair cuts since the pic was taken! So Ms. Betty looks a little different and a lot smaller!

I had a question: Other than their pet food, what else do your pets like to eat? 
My cats are so weird, they love to eat raisins, chocolate, cheese, ranch dressing! Weird huh?

Well I'd like to put Ms. Betty on blast! This cat will wake up from her deep slumber, come down the stairs, stretch and come around if you have ketchup!!! She loves the stuff, she will make a plate of french fries sparkle! How do I know this you ask?  Oh, I had emptied my fries on a plate and drizzled ketchup all over.  I got a call from my mother and had to step into the computer room for a bit. When I came back this darn cat had licked up every single bit of ketchup there was on the fries and plate, she just left me all the licked fries! Gross, lol! It is my fault I left it on the coffee table.

We watched her to make sure she'd be okay....she's fine!  So now we have to keep watch when we're eating  ketchup.  I'll give her a couple fries with ketchup and I don't put them on a plate anymore.

Here's the proof! lol!

Fancy Ketchup from WhataBurger.....NOM NOM NOM!!

Saturday Garage/Estate Sale finds!!

Hello to everyone!! I hope you enjoyed your weekend.  Ours was busy and fun!  Saturday morning was perfect weather to be outdoors.  We woke up earlier than usual so that we could hit up some garage sales and we happened upon an Estate sale!!  I love going to garage sales with my Hubby, and I was excited that we were able to go to the Estate sale, since Hubby had never been to one, he 'd it!!  He said he's hooked! (",)

We found some really great items. I'd like to highlight some of the items we bought and see if you can help me with some info about one of them. That is if you know anything about it, lol!!

This is one of the items I bought at the Estate sale!  I fell in love with it!

Antique metal thread cabinet with glass front drawers by American Thread Company.
This cabinet is in really great condition, better than most I've seen.  And I was able to get all the threads too!!  Vintage wooden spool threads, Cottons and Silks.  Some spools have never even been used, perfect condition.

This is on the sides -
Star Mercerized Sewing Cotton
Fast Colors Will Boil
American Thread Company

They wanted $200....I was like uh-uh!! Ain't gonna be able to do it! lol!!  Since it was the last day of the sale everything was 50% off.  So I asked what was the lowest they would take?  They would not budge from $75.00 bucks!!  So that's what I paid! Even at $100.00 hubby said he would have gotten it for me....aaaaawwweeee He's a sweetheart ♥!

Then making our way home, I stopped at a couple garage sales.  Driving to our last garage sale of the day I see this baby glistening in the sun!!  Literally the lady had a table with clothes, a rack with clothes, on the ground were 3 pairs of shoes, a silver tray and a book and then this sewing machine was there all by its lonesome!! 

I thought maybe it was a Singer, sadly no!  But I just loved the way it looked.  I asked how much? I didn't care if it worked or not.  Though she said it did!  She wanted $10 bucks for it!! I said "sold"!  Hubby and I put it in the back of the truck!  This sucker was heavy!! I almost broke my pinky too!! ouch! We got the neighbor to help take it out when we got home.
The cabinet is damaged but I can fix that!! It needs a good cleaning.  I have yet to turn it on.   So I'm not sure if it really works or not.  If it doesn't it will be a nice display piece.  I also went on-line to find out more info on it, but I couldn't find anything on it!  I need a manual if possible!  

This is a Admiral A29407
So If you know anything about Admirals shoot me a comment or a email, I'd really appreciate it.

I also bought the silver tray!  Guess how much??  Okay it was .50¢!!  What a steal, and it's real silver too!

I really enjoyed my weekend.....I hope this week goes by really fast!  Everyone enjoy their week.
