The Rusty Angel

It's great to have someone who shares your tastes to shop with.I am finally getting a few minutes on the computer to post a few things. At my house with 2 teenagers it's almost impossible to get computer time between homework and My Space and Facebook. I am looking at refurbishing a laptop I was given just so DH and I could have time on the computer.

Here are some of the things I purchased when I went shopping with Rondell.If they look familiar it's because she and I bought the identical things. SHHHHHHH don't tell Carl I bought a bag of grass. I'd never hear the end of it. I love my blue eggs. I need to find a bowl for them. I purchased yards of the fabric they are sitting on to make curtains. I ended going back and buying the ones I wanted a couple days later.

We both bought this candle holder and nubby candle. The cupboard it's hanging on my brother made me. Isn't it wonderful!!!The cupboard I mean.That will be another post. I'll show you all the stuff he's made for me.

Now here's the stuff I bought when I went back to buy the curtains. First here's the curtains. I hate the white windows and muttons but they'll have to do for now. I've toyed with the idea of making false inserts to cover them. We'll see. This room is still a work in progress. I also bought this rod iron candle holder. I figure if I buy 1 thing while I'm there I should be moving ahead on my decorating.I just love these nubby candles too.

Now here's a project I completed some time ago but I'm just getting around to posting and I do like how they turned out.

My SIL is very bad so I am praying for a miracle and will accept nothing less. I will covet your prayers. They both read my blog so I'm not going into detail here. We are remaining optimistic and not dwelling on the problem. But thank you to all who are praying.

I have lots of projects in the works and will post again when I can get the computer.

I think it's so neat that you two could meet and shop together! I love what you both bought! I wish I could find a place that had some eggs like that around here! I love those! I also love that's perfect for your cupboard!

I'm praying for your SIL.

Lots of goodies there - I especially like the small wrought iron candle holder. That is really colonial!

I will keep your SIL and family in my prayers. hugs, Linda
