Another giveaway! But you’d better hurry. The deadline is October 21st at noon. Hurry. And tell ’em Yaya sent you.
Well, this is a first. I just learned of a blogger who is having an “I’m A Flea Marketeer Party” and I just wanted to spread the word. I’d also love to win the prize; a bag (as in, purse, I believe) made from coffee bean bags. Now, could there be anything more charming? I ask you.
If you’d like a chance to win this lovely bag, scoot on over there and post a picture of your blog entry about your favorite flea-market find. Mine is an ‘Old English Double-desk’ that we found for $7 shortly after we got married. In my home, it is now 37 years old. I wonder how old it was before I got it. It has stood up through my husband’s college, all of my children’s schooling and asundry neighboring children and business deals. All in all, I’d say we have gotten our money’s worth, wouldn’t you?
Here’s the link to the party: http://fleamarketstylemag.blogspot.com/2009/10/join-im-flea-marketeer-party.html
There is much to be said for living in one area for many years. Its something I never experienced, until I married. Then, it was as if my life came to a sudden, screeching halt. Well, as far as moving around, anyway.
Naturally, with all that moving, there wasn’t a lot of opportunity for figuring out the finer workings of a smooth-running home. Just about the time I felt we were beginning to put down roots, whooooop! Another move.
We were a military family and I have lived in more towns than I could count. Now, however, it would seem that we are in one place to stay and I love it. Time for a new strategy.
Thus, I have decided to dedicate this blog to the care and feeding of Dust Bunnies and Sock Orphans. Do you have hints and tricks that you are willing to share?
For the most part, our home is comfortable. There are many of the finer details, however, that I would love to know more about.
Perhaps you have a particular way of staying on top of the laundry? Or, your sock drawer is free of orphans and you’d like to share how you’ve managed that?
Maybe… and here’s the big one in my life; you have learned some secrets to making notes, then being able to recove those notes later?
I know of no one who has absolute control in their lives. In fact, I would go so far as to say, I doubt that there is such a person living. So if you know of some way to help the rest of us do something a little better, I’d love to hear it. Just think of it as your way of helping to clean up the earth.
Thanks for your input.
