Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy. Eskimo proverb

A PuRse, GooDieS In The MaiL anD DiNNeR...

T.G.I.F.!!! Hey there my good is the other purse that I made..I loved it so much..I am keeping it..used it yesterday when I went grocery shopping..stays on me and I can walk away from my cart..I spent $72.00 yesterday but I used $23.50 in I spent $48.50..pretty good huh..of course my little sister would have save a boat load more..I didn't have any coupons on the stuff I had but had coupons for $12.50 off my next order and a $10.00 coupon off another I did 2 seperate orders..gotta save money any way we can now days..Any way I love the colors of this I am going to make another one and some others with different designs..I have pillows tucks to make, candle mats, doileys etc..and then start on some dolls..I have 6 weeks to get this all done..wish me luck..gotta get off this computer..but I love blogging..;)

yesterday I finally got my package from Samplers Country on Ebay..I ordered a bunch of stuff to make little potpourri baggies to sell at my shows and to make garlands and wreaths and maybe keep some for me...:) I love!!! all the fall colors..

here are the things for the garlands and wreaths..and these look like folk some of my dolls will be holding these..:)

little skinny candles..dolls will hold pomagrantes and little pumpin type pods..again my dolls will hold these...We had our 2 home teachers from church over last night for BBQ was so tasty and I sent them home with the left overs and apple cinnamon muffins..made a black forrest cake and the center was totally not baked..even baked it 15 minutes we ate around the edge and threw the rest of it the recipe from someone here..note to everyone out there giving out recipes..please be specific on what size pan to use or what size the bottle all know this recipe by heart....but the ones that are trying it for the first time do not..tell us where to get it..example..the baking isle or the dairy case etc..needless to say..that recipe got thrown away...anyway they came over and took our huge hot tub that we never did was a freebie and it has been sitting on its side for years now..rotting away..and they took an old grill and a kayak mold away on their trailer so we now don't look like the clampets live in our back yard...they didn't take all the leaves that are back there it looks so much better..not an eyesore for the neighbors any more..we had a great time eating outside al fresco on our picnic table..they were the first to eat with us out was nice and relaxing...Have a wonderful weekend everyone...:)


  1. That's great! I still need to get into using coupons again, I just don't find them anymore like I use too and most sites want you to download a toolbar or something like that? Maybe you can give us a easy class in using coupons? Please!

  2. Wow I love your botanicals from Sampler's Country..I may have to stop over there to see what they have to offer! The purse is really pretty! Have a great weekend!

  3. You did good with your savings. Keep up the good work.

  4. Your bag looks wonderful Gina, I love that style (Jacobean?) of embroidery.

  5. Gina,
    Love the purse you decided to keep for yourself!! Love the colors you did it in.
    Looks like you got some great goodies to make up some yummy smelling bags!!
    Happy crafting!!

  6. Gina, I wanted to let you know I have used my goodies that I won in your giveaway you had this month. I took the pocketbook back to school shopping with my daughter. I love it! It is the perfect size for shopping. The room spray is wonderful. I can't quit spraying it! Thanks again for the wonderful goodies. Hugs,Tina.
