WOW...a week until Christmas!
This month is flying by!
Last week I stopped at a yard sale and found all these goodies. I think many of them will be used for crafting and they were cheap!
2 glitter bells, 2 birdhouses, 2 sleighs, a vintage Santa and a Bubble light replacement bulb!
All for $1.00
Then I went to my favorite thrift shop and found these vintage ornaments
Cool little plastic whirly ornaments...I've never seen any like them, but they just say 60's?
What do you think?
The bag of these was also $1
I was also lucky enough to meet my Atlanta blogging friends for a fun lunch!
I haven't seen these ladies in a year and that is way too long!
We ate at Maggiano's Little Italy Restaurant
I had chicken Piccata and it was delicious!
Now what's this about Aruba??
My amazing daughter Ashleigh contacted me after Thanksgiving and asked if I'd like to go with her on a little vacation before Christmas...
Without even knowing where I said YES!
Then she said...ARUBA!
I must admit I didn't know exactly where Aruba was but I knew it was an island and had beaches
It is in the Caribbean Sea and right off the coast of Venezuela
Ashleigh has us staying at a hotel right on the beach. FIVE full days! I am so happy.
She said after the year I've had she knew I could use a vacation and she always tries to be somewhere sunny and warm before Christmas!
I am sure I will feel this way soon!
Charlie will be taken care of by his favorite cat sitter my good friend Donna!
As you can see he isn't real concerned....right now that is. He does hate when I'm gone but I told him this would make me a much better kitty mama.
Rest, relax, read and oh yes an exotic drink or two won't hurt. Time with my oldest girl child is a bonus. We will be back for Christmas of course!
I might blog or I might not...who knows.
I will take photos I'm sure!
See you soon!
