Tyler's surgery went well. He was in surgery for about an hour and 15 minutes but was in recovery for almost two hours. Teenage boys just LOVE to sleep and put a little anesthesia into the mix and WheW - there's no waking them up! When Rob and I were finally able to go back and see him I about burst into tears - he truly looked like he had gone a couple of rounds with a heavy weight boxer. His left eye is black and blue and swollen shut and the right side of his face is also swollen and bruised. But, they fixed the eye - he has stitches in his nose where they took the graft to fix the orbital bone and stitches in his eye as well. He will heal and will be fine, although no gym or sports for 6 weeks. THAT will kill him. Thank you all so much for your notes and prayers; I appreciate them more than you know.
I have a lot I want to show you but first, drum roll, please. The winner of my follower/commenter giveaway is ANDREA! I have almost everything together Andrea, but it won't get mailed till this weekend. I hope you'll like everything!
Before I show you my Goodwill finds, I want to show you my Olympic Finish. I started it during the Olympics but didn't finish it till after. This is "Her Sampler" by CHS. I stitched it on 36 count Buttercream with DMC, one thread over two.
I also started working on BBD, Honeysuckle Manor. But... I don't like the colors of the flowers so I'm going to frog them and do them in more of a pink tone. This color just looks muddy to me and I don't care for it, at all. So, before I get much more done, I'll be doing the froggy rippit dance.
Now..... onto my finds. Nothing, except the dishes I'm going to show you cost more than $4 a piece. Are you ready for some heavy duty pictures? These are things I've found over the last few weeks. Remember, it's warming up and folks are doing their spring cleaning!
First up, this little Fitz and Floyd salt and pepper set. How cute are these guys? $4.
This little milk glass dish was $1.99 - I just need to find a flower frog to go in it.
How about this cute little pair of angels - they were $1.95 each:
I loved these pink Hall China bowls for $3 each - I just LOVE the color! And, how about the pretty serving bowl with the pink flowers on the outside- this was $4 ~ won't these be pretty on a table and really, cheaper than paper products:
Or how about this pretty, old, mixing bowl with the garland of Pink Roses on the inside? Summer, red skinned potato salad will be beautiful in this $2 beauty:
It was definitely my time for Pink! Look what else I found:
I can't remember exactly how much these were but they weren't more than $3 each.
And, if you haven't had enough yet, how about these cuties:
Can't you just picture all these pretties on a table with these dishes that I got for all of $18 ~ service for 8. Not a chip or crack in any of them:
Believe it or not, I've got a couple of more fun finds but they'll wait for another post. Have a great day everyone, thanks for the prayers for Tyler and all of us.
