These are the chairs I told you about. All I need to do is wipe them down and bring them inside.I got this old bucket and window for practically nothing. See the yellow cabinet inthe background? Yeah, that's been there for awhile...I really need to finish that project. Okay Sylwia, I think that's everything (ok I left out 3 things). Does that make you happy? You and Gaga better plan to be here next year!!

$20 for this cabinet people! My craft supplies are going to live here.
This suitcase was $3 and the shoe thingy was $2....suckers!
I think this was 50 cents
This cabinet was used for holding records I think. It was in great shape! $10 Holy crap!
This piano bench needs new hinges, and maybe some paint. Love it!
I also found a ton of hanging baskets and wire planters for The Garden Sage. One guy had 2 really good looking chairs (in great shape) and took $4 for both. In fact, one of them looked like the chairs Nonie had in her kitchen and the cane seat is perfect! I added to Cody's hat obsession with an army helmet, and I got some windows for $1 each. Plus, I got an assortment of other little things.
Only 364 days until next years sale!!!

Look out Hollywood! Here's your next teen heartthrob!
Sigh...I'm so old I can remember Leif Garrett and David Cassidy in Tiger Beat or some other crap like that. At least I've weathered a helluva lot better than Leif...I'm just much plumper. It pulls out the wrinkles. If I went bra-less I'd look 19 from the neck up...180 from the neck down. Eww, I just grossed myself out.

I put some of my Grandmother's crystal and glass on there. I found the mercury glass at Goodwill of all places. It's just cheapie stuff but I liked it.
I put my bug books and some of the overflow of my cookbooks. There are still so many more....
PS! Please ignore the ugly border wallpaper, it's a leftover from the previous owner. Believe it or not, it's the least offensive thing she did in the house. I think all her taste...is in her mouth!

The Haven honors Sute as volunteer
Page Sute has been selected as The Haven animal shelter's volunteer of the quarter.
Sute has been volunteering at The Haven for two years. She has been to the shelter every week to walk dogs and give them a break from their kennel existence. Organizers said she does this quietly, with patience and care for each animal.
In addition, she's a frequent participant in The Haven's off-site adoption events, promoting the dogs to any potential adopters, organizers said. She also helps at various fundraisers and was one of the volunteers instrumental in gaining corporate sponsors for the facility's 2009 calendar.
"Page is always cheerful and willing to help in any way," said Kathie Ono, volunteer coordinator. "Although she's quiet, she's a very effective and important volunteer for The Haven."
The Haven is a no-kill animal shelter in Fairhope. Call 929-3980 for more information on volunteering.
(Actually, she's mean as a snake and treats me like a dog --- Sute)

The reason for that pointless rant was that I discovered Gaga still had pictures on her camera from last Christmas and every picture after that. Almost 400. But at least I finally got the pictures of all my nieces and nephews I've been waiting for and now I'm giving you a gallery of adorableness.
This is Katie: AKA Katiebug, or PrissyPants
These little thugs are Jacob (left) AKA Turkeybutt and Petey (right) AKA Stinky. I have better pics of both boys but I love this one...they think they are so cool.
You think they might be tired?
Petey looks totally disgusted.
This is Sarah. How can something this cute and adorable be so rotten? But she is. I need a good nickname for her. Sometimes I call her Demon child, but it might traumatize her later on...who am I kidding, she'll probably love it!

What a pretty shot of Page and the countryside!This is Dad eating a either a cheescake or a huge hunk of cheese.Here's Page in front of the Bridge of Tears. I'm pretty sure that's it...there are so many bridges in Venice.This one is for the history books! Dad has never smiled before when taking out a credit card!
Dad took this picture because when he and I went to Venice we arrived at the train station early in the morning. The place was COVERED in sleeping bags full of traveling young people. I remember the nun's coming out and shooing them all away with brooms.
Dad wanted me to post this video. It's his favorite song. Dad's weird. And he has discovered YouTube. Heaven help us.
(I couldn't get the video to load directly on the blog. Sorry)

Here is just a fraction of the Canton Flea Market (1st Monday). We spent two days plundering through there and still didn't see it all. I'm going through junk withdrawals.
Ol' Man was just dying to see Cody march at a game (first time he's ever cared more about the band than the game)
He's such a cutie!
Here's a shot of Ol' Man and Cody. Cody looks perturbed...it might have something with the fact that Ol' Man embarassed the snot out him by talking to this little girl.
We're not sure but we think this is Cody's little girlfriend. He's not talking. She is adorable though! Maybe he'll introduce us when they get engaged (in hopefully about 10 years!!!).
Anyway, right now it's pouring down rain and all the animals are napping and it's blissfully quiet. SHHH!!!
