Blog Gift Game

Someone posted about a marvelous blog game to play that involves "Paying it Forward".

Here’s How It Works:

I’ll send a surprise gift to the first three commenters on this blog post. The gift will be a handmade surprise by me and will be sent to you some time in the next 365 days - both the gift and the time you receive it will be a surprise :)

Here’s what you need to do, leave me a comment and make sure you include your email address (if your profile doesn’t include it). I’ll email you for your snail mail address and a ask a few questions (likes/dislikes, favourite colours, etc.).

To complete signing up you MUST play along too. To do this you must blog a similar post and pledge to make a surprise gift for the first three people who comment on it.

So, do you want to play? Comment below and I’ll sent a thoughtful handmade gift to the first three people who do.

So let's have some fun! I am going to receive a gift from Pamela at:Sew Much Class & Crafty, too

About Time!

I know I have been away for quite awhile but It has just been too hot to do anything. Our dear old house has no air! I have been sitting under  a fan reading a book for the last month. I have been feeling guilty and as I have found a few more treasures in the last few weeks I am posting a few pictures taken at the beginning of July. I have been keeping up my other blog Crosstown. You can view it here:

These are my July thrift store finds:
jars, book marks and candle box
Detail on the square jar and the round one is an Ermetico
made in Italy
magazine holder, burlap and wire bunny
two large pieces of burlap
waiting for next Easter!

Have a great week and keep cool!

Saturday was for the Birds

After attending our Grand daughter's High School graduation in Ottawa. 
Proud Family Mom & Dad and brothers
Proud Grandparents Mr. Chaos and me

Then having Chinese for our daughter's July 4 birthday we headed home with a flea market stop in Smiths Falls where I found these cute birds:
The larger one (has a recorded bird song)

found a home here on one of the kitchen wall boxes.

Glass Balls

I found these 3 glass balls at a garage Sale on our way home on the weekend. I don't know what they are but they were 50¢ each and so pretty and sparkly I scooped them up. They are about 4" in diameter and have a one hole. They remind me of float balls. I wonder if they came off a light fixture. Anyone know?
