Howdy Y'all!

What a week!
Grab a cup a coffee and let's talk.
First of all, I have realized how easy it is to get rid of stuff.
Sell it.  What's left, pack it up and donate it.
and let me tell ya, we had a hugely successful sale and barely made a dent.
Today?  I am packing everything up and donating it to Hannah House/King's Ranch.
I refuse to "give my stuff away" to people who can afford to buy it!
Get ready, I'm on a roll this a.m.!

Okay, I'm going to get on my soapbox here.  If you disagree with me, sorry....

Gun Control...
Lot's has happened this week with guns.
I am a believer in the right to bear arms.
Like this....
I don't, however, believe you need this....
seriously?  I mean why do you need an arsenal in your possession?

I believe that we have GOT to do something about the problem of mental illness in this country.
I believe that a lot of doctors dole out WAYYY to many prescription medications and are being careless caretakers not getting to the root of the real issue.
I believe that families are turning a blind eye to family members that are struggling with life's issues.
I believe that we need to recognize the problems of this country and take control of the REAL problem.
The person behind the gun.
If it wasn't a gun, it would be a knife, or a physical altercation.
I would like the right to protect myself against these individuals, not cower down to them.
However, I don't need a machine gun to do it.
That's just what I believe!

This week 10 minutes away from my hometown a bus driver protecting 21 students was shot and killed and a young 6 yr. old boy was taken hostage.  Last I heard, the 66 yr. old man (with obvious mental issues) was still holding this precious life....
In a bunker that he dug behind his home.
They are communicating through a PVC pipe.
I know this is a touchy subject, but.....
When are we going to wake up America and do something about this?
This is just what I believe.
What do you believe?

Have a great day y'all!
Pray for little Ethan

No not art.....however, I may have some art for sale.
See, there is this facebook site.  Brilliant idea that someone has put together.
You have to be a member.  I thought I was done with sorority life.  OH WELL!
Anyway, what you do is you have to be a member of this page and then sell your stuff that you don't need.
It's called Mountain Brook Trading.
The catch is, you have to meet in Mountain Brook to make the sale.  Well sortof.  I think people skirt around that rule.
 I am at the point in my life that I like to call it "replacement" items.  Meaning I will be replacing anything that sells.
So, since we are moving, this is right up my ally.  And you know what?  You wouldn't believe what you get for this stuff.  Atleast half if not more than what you paid for it!. Bodabing! (wait that HAS to be spelled wrong :)
So, J and I decided to post pics on the site and have a little big sale of our own.  Do you realize just how much stuff that I have that I don't use?  A couple of years ago I got on a serious designer shoe and handbag kick.  You know, I'm at that age that all that stuff really doesn't matter to me.  Not that I'm letting myself go, it's just stuff.  Just stuff.  You younguns will get there one day I promise.
Give me a house, an art studio, a few nice dresses and shoes....oh and I'll NEVER part with my jewelry, especially my pearls and Chanel handbag.  Stuff I want to hand down one day.
So, I'm going to show you stuff that's going to be at the sale!  E-mail me if you are interested in anything and can come to the show on Wed!!!!
Have a great day y'all!
OH wait!  I DO want to show you my latest painting first.
Name?  Fifty shades of Green!!! (great name huh?)
Will be available at Trinity Spotlight on Art.
40 x 40 mixed media on gallery wrapped canvas
now,,,,on to the sale!


Please, please, please don't comment on here.  If you need info on the sale please e-mail be at
Sale is Wed. 9 - 12 in Vestavia!
Thanks and have a great day!
