Thought I would show you a couple of the treasures I found at Antique Alley. These two vintage pin cushions. The heart shaped one looks very very old, the lace is exquisit and the bow has little knots tied in each loop, it is made of satin. I remember seeing the hat pin cushions when I was little. I figure it was made in the forties or fifties. The hat is pink satin with white net trim and the flowers are that velvet old kind. Both are soooooo pretty. And some time today I will be listing both of them in my etsy shop.

Hope you enjoyed looking at them, I'll show some of the other things later. Wishing all of you a wonderful day.
Hugs, Pat

Our group of ladies met again last night for a good time and creative ideas. I think everyone had a good time. As Jana told you we added a new face last night, Cammie, and we are all glad to have you in our group.
We all ate soup that Jana made and munched on punkin pie and muffins. I took my stash that I bought at the Antique Alley Flea Market and everyone loved it. I'll share it with all of you in a day or two.
Last night Charlene taught me to solder and I loved it. Soooooooo much fun. I can't wait to order my kit and get started on all kinds of things. Here are pictures of everyone in action and some of the creations that were finished last night. The solder is mine and I'm so proud of it.

Hope you enjoyed our meeting and have a wonderful evening.
Hugs, Pat

Here are the pictures of the flea market I set up at in Cleburne. We wanted to set up on Thursday, but it rained all day. The sun came out Fri. and we put up the tables. We had a few light sprinkles on Fri. afternoon, none on Sat. and Sun. it was HOT. I really sold a lot of things, did so good I'm going back this weekend. I set up on Main Street so you get a lot of traffic.
It was really hard work, I was sooooo tired every day when we quit, but it was worth it. I've been loading my van this week and I went to get some new glasses while it was raining yesterday. I broke mine a couple of months ago and have been using reading glassed. Feels so good to be able to see the writing on the T.V.
Hopefully I will get back to blogging next week.

I am very saddened today to hear about the death of Patrick Swazey. I loved to watch him in the movies and hear about his life with Lisa and the ranch. His time here was so short. I had been watching the news because I knew it was coming soon, I just kept hoping he was the one that could be healed. I will say my prayers tonight for his family, they were all real close and it will be hard for them. Poor Lisa will be lost. We are all going to miss this handsome, wonderful man.

I went to a garage sale last weekend and found this lovely silver bowl. It looks like a punch bowl to me. It's so large and pretty. I haven't taken any of the tarnish off of it yet. Haven't dedided what I'm going to do with it. But, I'm going to be setting up at the 15 mile Antique Alley at Cleburne next week. It maybe on one of my tables. That's one of the reasons I have not been blogging, I've been trying to get everything ready. I have already took one van full over to Cleburne and I have the van almost full again. I'm going to take it over Sunday and I'll take the last load when I go to set up the tables on Wed. next week. We will start setting up on Thurs., and sell thru Sunday. I will be on Main street in the 700 block. Hope to see some of you.

Hope everyone has remembered to pray for our country and the families of those lost in the fall of the Twin Towers. This is a sad day for all of us and always will be. I pray that God will bless you and our country.
