Happy Thanksgiving 2012

Why am I thankful today. Every day. Because I love and am loved. I have friends in my life, family. I have a place to live. I can walk and most times I can remember what I was going to do. And I have joy.
That doesn't mean I don't have problems like everyone else, I just remember all the things I have survived to be here and I am thankful and grateful to be here and to keep on trying.

Be blessed today, I am thinking of you with love. I am thankful for you!

Renningers Extravaganza November 2012

So sorry you missed it! Great crowds, great weather! Hehe and great finds!

This book from the 1800's has great illustrations.

Like this and

this one.

Found great buttons

These are only a few of them.

That's four different types of trim. You'll be seeing that on a bear later!

And how about that sweater and the antique dress! So fun.

Happy to say there have been some changes at Renningers in Mt. Dora, more food options, more seating to eat and it's covered from sun and rain!

And my favorite, the covered vendor area that is open in the sides has been changed so each space is more open to the public and much more inviting. They have really stepped things up. It's like going into little boutique stalls now. Just fun, I was able to look at things better.

Can't wait till the next one in January!

Veterans Day 2012

Today is Veterans Day where we give thanks to all who have served. How do we do this? Everyday you see a service member, or a retiree remember that this is someone's child, parent, aunt, uncle, cousin, friend that put their life on the line do we can vote our minds, express our opinions, love who we choose and worship as we are led to or not led to. And as we remember this, remember to take the time to say thank you.

Thank you do much for your service. Thanks to my husband who served 23 years. You are appreciated!
