{Thrifting and Partying}




Done a little thrifting after getting a bunch of sugars off this sweet girl.....


I only went to a couple of places but did find a few things I liked.

Isn't she just lovely? 

  What was REALLY lovely was the price! I got this sweet thing for $1.99. 

Ooh...I grabbed this little cabbage teapot up faster than you could blink! I spotted it at a distance and darn near ran over two old women and one man to get to it! And....for $2.99 it became mine!


 Cute purse for $3. 


 Yes, I'm a sucker for baskets and any kind especially one this size and well made for $2.


And talk about partying...We just had a little family birthday party for my oldest grand that turned 12!



Every grand gets to pick what they want for their birthday luncheon and my girl wanted Nana's sausage and potato soup and turkey and ham subs! Now you can't go wrong with soup and sandwiches!

  




Subway has nothing on me!!!


 Birthday girl was happy! 
YEP...that would be my grandson in the background wanting to blow her candles out!!!! LOL!


And sweet new grandgirl could care less about a party right now! 
 

A surprise came in the mail for me and needless to say it made my day!

Isn't the card just beautiful. No doubt hand made. 
 

Love, love, love this cute little pocket card.



But nothing compared to a hand written note from my blogging sister in Christ, Debbie Kay.
 


Pop over and visit Debbie Kay when you get a chance. She is the sweetest soul and has a heart that encourages.

 And just so you will know. We carried this sweet girl for her 2 week check up and she had gained 1 lb. The doctors only hope that within 2 weeks that newborns are back to their birth weight. Well this sweet girl went over the top! Mommy is feeding her good!




Speaking of encouragement. Have you been encouraged lately by another person? Or, have you yourself encouraged someone?

It doesn't take much to encourage another. Sometimes it can simply be a hug or a pat on the back. Other times just a simple phone call will do or an email. But I can tell you that a sweet little card with a hand written note such as what my friend Debbie Kay sent to me speaks volumes. Number one she took her time to do it! TIME is something we all struggle to have but TIME is one of the greatest gifts that we can give to another. Even if it's only to take the time to write a note to another. 

I want to challenge you today to find someone that you can encourage this week. Whether it be a hug, baked goody, card, email or etc. If you've ever been encouraged by another then you know how it feels! 

Happy Day to you all.

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  5. Happy Birthday to Raygen!! Loved your thrift finds, and I would have done the same to get to that cabbage teapot. I expect to see it on a tablescape soon. I want to let you know my facebook account was hacked, the worse ever. grrrrr I had to close it. I have started a new page and will be sending you a friend request. It's MaryJane K-Hutchins. AND, your grandbaby is adorable!

  15. The grands are wonderful. Had to laugh seeing an adult hand clapped firmly over your grandson's mouth. How could your granddaughter not feel special with that kind of a fun party?! Everything looks so very good! The newbie is a sweetie and, though she may not have been especially interested this year, she will be next year. Yay for getting her weight back so soon.

  16. I so enjoyed your words tonight. The thrifting and seeing your finds, the family party and seeing some of your grands and the "Subway" bar is a fantastic idea. Oh that little one with all that hair is so precious. I visited Vintage Daydreams and loved it. Your words about encouraging one another really struck a cord. I got a sweet card from a friend today. I never take time to send card anymore. Something to aim for. Thanks Cindy.

  18. Happy Birthday to your 12 year old girl, don't they just grow up too fast?? Thanks for the sweet reminder to encourage one another. I am gonna email my bestie who still lives in Florida to encourage her. She has a very demanding job as a Director of Nursing and could probably use a kind word from someone who cares for her. Keep on enjoying that precious baby Cindy :)
