A Project and Yard Sale Finds
Good Evening my friends! Not much to share this Monday. I did not feel like going to many yard sales this weekend. I think I went to two. I was just feeling not quite myself. We have had a lot of stress at work. When I went into the counseling field I wanted to help people. However with the current medical model we have now, its no longer about helping people. The goal is billing and numbers, this frustrates me because I am social worker to the core. It goes against my grain to push for productivity for a certain percentage so the agency can make money. But because I can not quite retire just yet, I try to please Administration at the same time help my people. But I tell you folks this is taking a tole on my physical and mental health. So keep me in your prayers, and I would be ever so appreciative. Project! I was not feeling very creative this weekend! Actually I was not feeling well at all. I did get this one project completed. The birdcage and bird graphic is one I down loaded from the internet, possibly Graphics Fairy. If you recognize your work please let me know and I will give you credit. Yard Sale Finds! All these candles were a buck! I was able to purchase all these plates below for 1.00. The cardinals, the Blue Willow and the Roses. Yep all of these plates were just a buck. I was so excited when she told me. Most of you who have visited my blog during the Christmas Holiday, know that I love Cardinals. Blue willow is a favorite classic! I have four other plates in this same design. Bling is one of my favorite finds at yard sales. I use it in my projects all the time. These pieces cost 25 cents a pair.
