I bought this stone fruit last week at the thrift close to the hospital. It was $5.99 with an orange tag so it was 25% off - about $4.50. I listed it on ebay, knowing it would sell for about maybe a hundred dollars? but hoping it might go a bit higher. Imagine my surprise last night when my phone went DING DING every few minutes and it ended at THREE HUNDRED EIGHTY THREE DOLLARS. $383.39 to be precise. Whoo freaking HOO! I haven't have a really good SURPRISE auction in years.
The tree is down and the ornaments are sorted. Spun heads here.
Santas and elves here.
Justification for buying every single one of these tins I have ever found.
The Christmas village, bottle tree forest and Santa collection are still up. I am so busy with my regular chores plus being at the hospital a lot every day, that it is just going to have to be an ongoing project for awhile.
The Breadman started his new job on Christmas Eve working for Saralee. He took about a month off to help me around here and with the kiddo. His new schedule is about the same int he mornings - he leaves where about 1:00 am. But he used to come home about 5:30 in the afternoon. Guess when he gets home now???? 10:00 AM. At the latest! Holy cow, it's like he doesn't even have a job. I get up and BOOM a couple hours later, he's home. ladies, I need my NO MAN time. Time to do what I need to do, when I want to do it. Like have Miss Clariol come for a visit, or take down the Santa's which are right beside his chair where he is asleep. Give me strength. I think he needs a part time job too. (I'M KIDDING!)
