And So The Journey Continues…


Hello All my blogging buddies!!

Some of you may have noticed I haven't been around much the last 2 + weeks.

Well, here’s why.

I am no longer working at the bank, I have started a new job. I took a job as a delivery driver.  The pay is A LOT Better.

But since I had to give the bank a 2 week notice, I have been working 7 days straight for the past 2 + weeks.

I was driving Sat., Sun., and Monday.

Then working at the bank Tues. through Friday.

Needless to say I haven't had much free time.

My last day at the bank was last Friday, so hopefully I can have some time to breathe!!

I did find some time this past week to do a little shopping and crafting.

So I thought I would share with you my new prim goodies.

I got this hooked rug chair pad off eBay.

It cost me less than $7 shipping and all!!

Cant beat that!

006

I went to a local antique mall and these prim goodies.

033

4 little hearts made from old quilts.

Even backed with old quilts.

034

I put 2 of them in this little basket.

037

038

I haven't found a spot for the other 2 yet.

I got this neat shelf.  I love the hooks.

I'm considering painting this back.

But I haven't decided yet.

043

044

I also haven’t decided where to hang it.

But I will be sure to show it off as soon as I do. ;)

At the same store I purchased this little red and white stocking.

It was in with some Christmas clearance but I don't think it is too seasonal, so I may leave it out all year.

039

041

Lastly from this store I purchased these rag balls.

I'm not an expert on these, but I do believe the are vintage.  Not extremely old but not new either.

I haven't decided if I'm going to keep them or sell them on my website.

036

Maybe I’ll keep the blue ones and sell the other three.

I also was able to get some things made this past week end.

My daughter and I went to Hobby Lobby and I bought me some things to prim up.

1st I bought this wooden box.  It has a slide lid bottom.

I’ve been wanting one of these for my dryer sheets forever.

Dawn gave me the idea for this months ago, so I was so excited when I saw this there for $3.99.

I painted it black and aged it up some.

046

I also made me some little fabric covered boxes.

009b

And a prim sewing box with pin cushion topper.

I got this idea from Ann and our Trashy Swap.

016

The label is one I purchased from Yankee Lane Primitives quite awhile back.

I'm running out of prim labels, think it may be time to order some more of her fabulous creations.

They are simply the best!!

021

019

017

I also made some grubby eggs for the up coming Easter/Spring season.

009

Not the best photo of them though.  They are cuter in person.

And lastly, I made more candle pouches and grubby candles.

007

008

022

And that is what I have been doing… when I’m not at work.

I also wanted everyone to know that I am planning on having another giveaway for my followers very soon.

I am just trying to decide what to giveaway.

Hopefully by this weekend or early next week I will have the giveaway posted.

So please be sure to keep an eye out for it.

A few days ago I started watching reruns of “Criminal Minds”… I am soooo hooked on this show right now.

But dont you hate it how the rerun channels never play the episodes in order.

It can be quite confusing!! :)

So I am thinking I am going to have to head to Best Buy and buy me Season 1 and start from the beginning.

I am addicted to the DVD sets of TV shows.

Only my favorites though.

I can watch my favorite shows over and over.

I own all of the Buffy TVS seasons,

all of the Angel seasons.

All of the Felicity seasons,

All of NCIS seasons,

All of the LOST seasons,

All of the Bones seasons,

All of the Smallville seasons,

XFiles seasons,

The early seasons of 24,

and all of Friday Night Lights seasons.

I also own the early seasons of ER, the ones B4 George left.

Plus for Christmas a couple of years ago,my daughter bought me the complete set of My So Called Life.

And my hubby bought me the 1st season of 30- Something.

I bought my daughter the entire Ally McBeal seasons for XMAs. (She has inherited my addiction of TV shows.)

But I think I am going to have to buy me the set, because I have the feeling she isn't going to share!! LOL!!

Can you tell I LOVE my television shows!! LOL!!

I don't even want to think of all the money I have spent on all of these!!!

Isn't it funny the silly things that give us pleasure.

I will watch these shows over and over.

Well, I would during the summer before I started working.

I have a feeling this summer is going to be different.

I just don't have the me time, I once had.

I'm a night owl ladies, I can stay up until 2 – 3 AM, then force myself to go to bed.

Well, once again BEFORE I started working.

Oh how times have changed over the last few months.

How pathetic I must sound, huh…. my biggest thrill is watching TV shows on DVD!!! LOL!!! :)

Right now my Favorite New show is “The Good Wife”.

I LOVE this show. If you have never watched it I really recommend it.

Guess what??

Spring is finally coming!! I noticed some blooms on my trees today.  Plus my bulbs are starting to poke through the ground!! YAY!! Lets do the Happy Dance!!

If I never see snow or sleet again it will be fine with me.

Bring on the warm weather, green grass and flowers!!

Okay, my prim pals, I guess I have babbled on long enough.

I hope you all are having a wonderful week.

Until next time….

Take Care and Prim Filled Blessings to you ALL!!

Love,

Tam

Glad to hear that you are o.k., just extremely busy! Congrats on the new job. More money is always a good thing!!

Love the fabric covered boxes you made. I've been wanting to do some of those but we don't have many craft stores in my immediate area so the boxes are hard to find locally. Love all your other goodies you've made or found too! I'm right there with you on the snow and sleet thing ~ enough is enough and if it never comes around again, that's o.k. with me! Hope you have a great day!

Hugs,
Donna
