Rain Rain Go Away...

We've had non-stop rain for days now and I'm way past wanting to see the sun again. I guess the brightside to all the rain is that I don't feel guilty holed up in my studio trying to finish some projects...I finished this one last night...I showed you the cover in my last post. I haven't quite decided if I'm going to list it in my Etsy store or save it for Junk Bonanza.

I was all set to have most of the day to myself to do some junking and some crafting and oh, I was so excited...Matthew had to take the ACT at 8:00, Tom (and his BFF Joe) are attempting to sell some of Tom's sports collectibles at a show so they had to leave at 8:00, Shelby had to work at 10:00 and Sebastian had a birthday party at 10:00..but I got an email from my uncle on Thursday who was tattling on my bed-ridden father who always claims he's "ok" and insists that he doesn't need me to do anything for him. He knew right away someone tattled on him...must have been my "I'm-not-taking-no-for-an-answer" voice? So instead of my original plan I spent the morning running errands, grocery shopping, making my nearly emaciated dad "breakfast in bed" (at noon) and cleaning his kitchen. I was so worried about him last night that I had a little break-down (especially when he said something like "don't be alarmed when you see me laying here" but after seeing him this morning I know he'll be okay. He's scheduled for surgery on Thursday and will have to be in recovery for about 4 weeks...then I can work on fattening him back up! After doing my daughterly duties I hit an estate sale...WOW were the prices low! Here's my haul (I won't even tell you what I wouldn't believe me if I did!)
Don't ask what I'll do with the sign and three boxes of those little plastic letters because I don't have an answer...maybe it'll look good with "ALICE AND ELSIE" on it for my booth?

And I can NEVER NEVER pass up a cute religious piece...if the sun was anywhere to be found my pictures would be much better (I know, I know...nothing can help with my poor skills)

And just for the record (in case my dad does read this): I'd rather take care of him than sit here in my messy studio ANY day of the week!

You find the best treasures! The sewing patterns are neat! :)
Your album is turning out nicely!

I hope your father's surgery goes very well. I'll keep him in my thoughts and prayers.
