I hope y'all all have a wonderful and very Merry Christmas and ring in the New Year with plenty of joy. I have enjoyed meeting and making new friends this past year with my blog and hope to meet lots and lots of more new friends in the years to come. I will see you again on January 1, 2010.
I have a cross stitch finished mini backpack that I would like to go to a little boy named Aaron. I stitched this as a gift that was not needed at the time and since then the little boy has grown up too much to use it. The backpack is navy blue. It is about 9" tall and 8" wide. It has straps on the back so it can be worn on a child's back. It has a zippered opening with a pocket on either side that closes with velcro flaps. If you have a child, grandchild or a friend that has a child named Aaron and you would like to give as a present please leave a comment or e-mail me and I will be happy to mail it to you. This is brand new, has never been used and would be an appropriate size for a 1 to 3 year old.
It is starting to look and feel more and more like Christmas. The colder weather has moved in and snow flurries were mentioned in the weather forecast. The crowds and traffic are getting heavier every day and the stores are having lots and lots of sales. I have been stitching for Christmas and here are a few that are done but not yet finished.
The flea market is held at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds the 4th weekend of every month and is a treasure trove for bargain hunters. Cousin Betty and I had a beautiful sunny day Friday to walk and hunt for those bargains. Even better they had free parking for the day. Here is some of what we seen:
desks for kids
quilts and embroidery work galore
wonderful hand painted trunks
pecans, pecans and more pecans
lots and lots of metal signs
and our loot
we each got a metal wreath and Cousin Betty also bought a basket and baby stroller
I went back with Mom on Saturday and we picked up a couple more of the rusted metal wreaths. They are marvelous, perfect to start decorating for Christmas. Now the only question is which one do we keep.
Cousin Betty also brought with her Uncle Richard and Aunt Mary. We enjoyed your visit so much and had such a great time while you were here.
