This Months Blog Feature is (drum roll...) Ablemabel

I've decided, (i'm a great decision maker) to Feature a shop or Artisan on my Blog once a month. That is along with my Fun and exciting Monthly Giveaway (I just love them).

This month it is Ablemabel on Etsy

This wonderful shop is a creation of two sisters Jen and Leann, who found inspiration and creativity from their parents. They've mixed their father’s dry sense of humor and their mother’s artistic abilities, and come up with imaginative makings.

This shop is full of handmade items that are fun, fresh, fashionable and functional. 

"I am inspired by everyday things around, nature, colors, emotions, moods, etc. Give me a fun piece of fabric, paper or beads and it's off to the races! I love finding the "unusual" and making it into something functional!"     Leann

  This Great Pouch fits 3 diapers or a pack of Travel Wipes, Functional and Fashionable.

I'm Thinking these Fun, Fresh Fobs would make Great Stocking Suffers or even a Gift for the Bus Drivers, Teachers, Etc 

These Snuggle Blankets are Fun and Functional as well, with bright colorful designs and a soft backing for comfort.

This item is my personal favorite, I love the colors and the functionality of the item.

I want to Thank You all for taking the time to Look around Ablemable on Etsy.
And hope you find just the right item for yourself or someone special.

I had a Garage Sale, ya wanna see

Well, I've been cleaning out my store room and my home of unwanted items for the past 3 weeks. I mentioned on twitter and face book a few days ago that I am getting rid of everything that doesn't serve a purpose in my life, my husband got a little worried but was quick to pitch in and help. (smart man)

I wanted to show you some before pictures of what the sale looked like, this was at  7 a.m. before people started arriving. It wasn't as busy as in past years, but I was told a neighboring town had their community sales so that explains it. But I ended the day with more money than I started it with and less STUFF.

We're are skipping Church tomorrow to remain open and hopefully sell more stuff, I really really don't want to pack it up. I plan on giving my 10% to the church, so it's a win win. 

Bruce's (my husband)  birthday is tomorrow also, so I'm taking him to the fireman's All You Can Eat breakfast at 7 a.m. Serving Pancakes, Bacon, Sausage, Eggs, Juice, Applesauce, Coffee and Tea and then open the doors at 8 a.m.  Fingers crossed it will be more successful than today was.

Oh, If you see something you like let me know, if I still have it it's yours for the garage sale price plus shipping of course.
 Well, I'll let you know how the day goes tomorrow, and wait to hear from you.

July Giveaway

This month I've picked something blue for the good Old Red, White and Blue.

This is a vintage set of Tupperware Nesting / Mixing bowls.
I believe these were a hostess gift in the late 80's early 90's.
The blue covers do not seal, they are like a plate or a lid you just set on top of the bowl.

Previously owned but in wonderful condition, with only minor scratches.
