Just my luck...


What every girl wants... New tires! Just my luck, I ran over a piece of metal and lost a tire. The Mr. insisted I needed all new tires. You know what that means...$$$

I pray that I sell all of these babies at the craft show Thursday.

I did get around to making more so this show I will be bringing a few...

I have plenty of boards as well.

I guess I could be bummed about having to spend my fun money on tires but Im not.

Maybe it was a good thing I ran over that piece of metal... it could have saved me from a blowout!

We are heading out this morning for Canton Mississippi.

Thank goodness for Grandparents! They step in and take care of kids...dogs...birds...and the house!

The weather man says it will be sunny!

So maybe I can unload some of these babies in Mississippi. I do hope I see some of you there. I will be on the square! Maybe we can have our picture taken together... I have always wanted to do that with a blogger friend. Im weird..I know..((hugs to ya))! I will be sure to comment back as soon as I get home. Hope to see ya there!

  1. Too bad about the expense of the tires but maybe it saved you a headache (or worse) on the road to Canton. Good luck Thursday!

  3. Just look at those bins full of beautiful things! Isn't it hard to part with them? I guess when you have a $600.00 tire bill, it wouldn't be!

    Good luck at the show!

  13. We just got a new car and one of the things I love about it is that is has new tires!
    Love the tassels too! As soon as we find out what we are having, I think I'll put an order in for a pink or blue one!

  14. OH, I'm sure you will sell your wares! They are gorgeous. I had a similar experience with my tires not too long ago. Ran over a massive nail that was on the street near a construction site. I was due for new tires anyway. It's important you are safe I guess! Best of luck at the show!

    Blessings to you and yours,

  23. Shiny new tires! Too bad we can't hang them around our necks or wear them on our fingers because it's our hubby's way of saying "I love you and want you to be safe."
    I know you will sell lots in MS...those new tassels are gorgeous!

  25. Coming from someone who has had a blow-out (twice!!)...it's good you got new tires!

    Good luck at the show!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh, I wish I lived closer to Canton! Let's see...it's only three hours from me, if I only school an hour tomorrow morning, and pack the dogs in the van, and...um, nope, I'm not seeing it happen. : ) I sure wish I could, though! I would LOVE to see you and your beautiful stuff!

    Praying for safe travel for you! And have fun while you're there! And make more money than the tires cost so you can have some fun money!

    Oh, and by the way, yes, I do sing in church...it's one of my passions!

  27. What is it with the tires lately? Our oldest turned 21 yesterday and asked for two new tires for her birthday. We bought them for her, but it seems like a weird birthday gift. But, hubby said they were $250 for two and that's all she was getting if she needed them :). Of course, mom bought a candle with a wooden wick that flickers and sounds like a crackling fire and a heated mattress pad for her too. Just a mom thing. Tires. . . not too special for a 21st birthday.

    I want to check out your tassles when I have more time. I may want to order one. They look beautiful.

    Blessings,

    Sher

  31. I know you are going to sell all your beautiful things. And is was a blessing that the tire happened at home and not on the road.
    God's work in mysterious way.
