A New Baby!

This morning I woke up to a wonderful phone call. My niece had gone into the hospital at midnight with contractions. We were all so excited! I actually got the call at midnight but I had gone to bed already, probably a good thing as I would have had a hard time sleeping. Finally at 10:00am my sister called to say that my niece had had her baby! A baby girl weighing in at 6 lbs 3 oz., and 18" long, just a tiny thing! I am so anxious to see her. Unfortunately, she is 5 hours away and it will be a little while till I can take that trip. But,I'm anxiously awaiting pictures!

I just wanted to do a quick post as it's been way too long since the last one. This week I've been pulling out all of my Christmas things and frantically pricing everything. The house is a huge mess and I can't wait till it disappears next week. I love to buy and the hunt for the treasure but when it comes to pricing items, It's just not my favorite thing!

Here is a picture of all the boxes that are marked and ready to go. My son was so sweet and organized this room so I could get all the boxes back in it and ready to go. And yes, this looks 100% better then it was looking! He made my day!

My studio is full of Christmas also as I have been packaging things, printing labels, sewing, gluing etc...

Thanks so much for stopping by and seeing what is going on.

A five hour drive is sooo much quicker than the eight hour one!! Let me know if you see any pictures of that kid showing up...I found out from Merr's facebook!! Haven't seen an ugly kid come out of that family yet :D Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

Congrats on the new niece...there is nothing better than a new baby! Hope you get to meet her soon.

Great Christmas goodies...I am in the same boat pricing up a storm and getting ready. I hate all the prep work, I would rather just find the treasures at sales than price and bag! See you Monday.

Congrats on your newest family member!! How exciting and I hope you get a chance to visit her real soon.

I love all of those vintage ornaments! My favorites are the old bells. You really do have a lot of treasures!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!
