NOT that I ‘needed’ them.!.!.!

Catching up on my thrift shopping now that my hand is better and I CAN shop.  Look what I found yesterday!

P1230048The ‘mixed’ jar was in the front and I ALMOST didn’t pick it up because I really only wanted the white ones.

P1230054As I pulled this one from the shelf to look closer at the white buttons, I noticed the FULL jar of white one behind it!!  I could not grab that one fast enough!!  hehe

P1230051Aren’t they beautiful!?!  And most of them are small and extra small ones.

P1230050Like I said, I did not NEED any more buttons, as is evidenced by the above photo if SEVEN jars of just white buttons (and one jar of black ones!)  My colored buttons are in show boxes; 3 boxes full.

P1230101While I really didn’t NEED any more white buttons, still I sorted through all of them and picked out the ‘special ones’ (unique shapes and the super smallest ones to add to my jars.  Then I decided to ‘share the wealth’ and filled three pretty apothecary jars to sell in my booth at Stars.

P1230103These jars are about ‘pint’ size.

P1220988Progress report on my hand post-op.  This picture was 4 days after surgery.

P122099313 days, just after stitches were removed.

P1230112And today!!!  The incision is completely healed, and hand ‘function’ is at about 85% and improving considerably every day.  Just yesterday I still could not turn on the ignition in my car with my right hand; and today I could!!  woo-hoo!

Packing and purging and buried in boxes!!

Still packing away for my upcoming move, getting rid of as much as I can; setting some stuff aside for a garage sale at the new place and will still probably need to ‘contribute more’ to the garage sale stack as I unpack and try to find room for it all.  Of course, the majority of what I have excess of is craft supplies and project pieces.

P1210234Empty shelf in my craft room.

P1210235Boxed up etsy inventory.

P1210236And MORE etsy inventory!  It really did NOT seem like that much when I had it stored on the shelves!

P1210237Dining room.

P1210238Even having to stack on top of furniture in the living room.

P1210239Craft room and a little more etsy stock.

P1210240Boxes stacked in the closet.

P1210241And on the bedroom dresser!!

With all that packing, of course I have not had time to work on any projects.  And unpacking and figuring out how to arrange the rooms and where to put things is going to take a ‘good while’.  SO, don’t worry if you don’t hear from me for a while.

Then, once I get settled in and can take the ‘down time’, I’ll finally be getting my carpal tunnel surgery.  And again won’t be doing projects or blog posts for a while!  ( I tried to type with my brace on and it is IMPOSSIBLE!  And I am far too impatient to do the ‘one finger typing’! )

I’ll try to do mini updates on my Facebook page whenever I can.  Hope you all have a wonderful summer!!
