Last day of Christmas in July

This has been fun, so today I see snow. When I look at this picture anyway.HAHA But this would be a great entrance for any night event, not just Christmas. With 95 + degree for the last 27 days, I wish there was alittle snow to cool it down abit. Thank you for checking out the blog. Have a great weekend.

On my Soap Box!
Hubby is making Hotel reservations for the World's Longest Yard Sale . It is next week. And he is having to deal with price gouging in Crossville Tennessee. He went in to make reservation in two weeks and the price is about $60.00 but for this weekend it is up to $190.00. There has to be a law against this. We will travel 30 minutes away to not pay this amount. I can't believe it. Chattanooga prices are still good. So if you are traveling this sale, look out for the price gouging. It just makes me mad. I wish people would boycott these hotels. It would only be fair.

I love these paper-felt flowers. Can't you just see a bouquet of them. So this could be a gift for anytime, not just Christmas. So grab the scraps and get busy. You can use them until a friend needs a pick me up. And the good thing is they will never wilt or die.

I fell in love with these little birdies. Look at the brush tails. I just got 2 but don't you know they are going to be front and center. Great Thrifty find.

Cause I am a Junker at heart, I had to show you this. I borrowed this picture from Sassytrash. So now I am on the hunt for lampshade frames. It looks like it would fit right in my shop. And the last few yard sales and estate sales I have been to, I have found beautiful shiny bright ornament's. And yesterday I found a treasure, so I will take my camera and show it off tomorrow.

I am counting down the day till the Worlds Longest Yard Sale. Only 9 days till the big show. We will close the shop from Wednesday thur Saturday. But I will be back open on Tuesday will a bunch new goodies, or I hope.

Happy Tuesday!

Oh, how simple and now the ideas start to flow. Make big cookies and just put one flat one inside, or perfect for a CD, or a gift card. Anything flat. Think about it........

Okay, if you know me you would know I aint gonna use my button to make this. Ha Ha. Cause I can't spare any. But I do like this ornament. Anything made with buttons.

I love these yoyo flowers. Gotta try and make some. I really need to start now to complete all the things I want to make before Christmas. So it won't be so busy. Who am I kidding, July is just as busy.....

What a unique Christmas tree. And a great way to display those special Christmas ornaments that you want in front so everyone can admire. Well this seems simple enough and then you can spotlight the special ones.

What a simple little "I am thinking of you " gift. We can do this. I love the pink color but you can use red or a color you consider Christmas. Who says we have to use this just for Christmas. You can do this anytime. It would be a nice treat for any party.

Taking a break from "Christmas in July" for a trip to the beach. I had a friend that, while @ the beach, built a snowman out of sand. It was there Christmas card. Cute idea. But this is a picture of how close we got to the Jimmy Buffett concert. No tickets so we went back to the room and watched it like everyone else at home. On CMT. But it went on for hours after.

Can you tell I am wanting something sweet? These are Cherries dipped in white chocolate. Then you pipe the faces. Cute * Cute* I forgot to tell you about the snowmen donuts. I think the noses are molded out of Starburst candy. Just heat them up and roll in your hand until you get the perfect nose. So I have posted 2 different candy items, just perfect for Christmas. Are you feeling the cool breeze of the winter chill. NO, me either. It has been HOT in Alabama. Looking forward to a chill down.
Have a good weekend!

Not enough time in the day.

There are sooo many things I want to do and I don't have enough time.

I saw these, right before Christmas and never had the chance to make them.

So easy, great for my Sunday School class.

Christmas in July

The next month I will be posting things I need to try at Christmas.

Maybe if I get started early enough, I will try some of them...

Merry Christmas!

Last night we hosted our Annual BBQ celebrating the 4th of July.
We enjoy this every year. We work our butts off, trying to get ready and then everyone is here and it is all worth it. Fun * Food * and Fellowship*
Last night we had about 50 attendees, and I think we all had a good time.
If you came by, I hope you enjoyed yourself, if you didn't, you missed a good time. Just remember as you celebrate the 4th this weekend, say a prayer for our world.

I just read on this blog that a boat captain has taken his life because of the results of the oil spill. Lord please be with this family and watch over each and every person involved.
