Little Surprise

Well-this is my life right now. All our stuff is in 3 storage units-we kept adding on as things were moved in and using up the space. We are settled in our tiny, and I mean tiny, apartment. I've concluded-Moving is Not Fun! Anyway it's done for now. We'll have more time to look at houses. We made offers on 2 different old houses-and neither one went through. Now we'll look at newer houses around where we live now. I'm not quite ready to give up on the vintage house yet-but there's not much in the area we want in our price range, that fits our criteria.

As we were packing up the old house, I pulled down from a ledge, a collection of old shoe shine boxes that had been up there for 13 years. One was kind of heavy, so I opened it to find this treasure chest full of vintage jewelry.
My Mom had given it to me years ago, and I completely forgot about it. What a nice surprise in the midst of all the chaos. The heart above has a L and R-My husbands name begins with R.
Some of the pieces are rhinestone and plastic and all kinds of stuff. Anyway. it was fun to go through it all. I hope you find a little surprise in your life! Have a great Wednesday! It's good to be back!

Moving On

H is for House. It's been so long I almost forgot my password. I want to update you on what's been happening in my crazy life. The last time I posted, we had put our house on the market-and it sold that first day! I was amazed and never expected that to happen. It really caught us unprepared-as in buying the downsized house. We did make an offer on a cutie, but that fell through. After spending another unexpected week with my Dad, I have been packing the entire house-yes all 13 years of junk, and well loved stuff. We are moving into a temporary apartment until we find the right house. So move this weekend-then We can take out time to look. It has been a crazy few weeks-I'll be glad when the move is over. I'm exhausted and my back is killing me! Hopefully we'll find a house soon-so I can do this all over again. Ha ha! Hope all is well with you guys. I have been reading your blogs- just haven't commented lately. I'll be back next week. Have a good one!
