I have been on a "shopping free diet" for some time now, with the exception of the necessities. Still on a mission to "clean out" around here, and I have not worked on that mission for some time now due to other "stuff" going on.. Of course "necessities" does include jewelry making supplies, so made a trip to a bead show last weekend.
Replaced my supply of rhinestone balls and rondelles, some vintage flatware pendants. Also found some chain with beads already added and a locket that I plan to add a bit of bling.
Of course gotta have beads and a few pendants............ Now I just need to get busy - Christmas is not that far off.
It is that time of the year - More lists to be made! Decorate for the holidays, gifts to be bought/made and wrapped, cards to be addressed and mailed, the "to do" list to get the house in order for company (especially since you are still finding pieces of last year's Christmas tree between the carpet and baseboard), and that mile long grocery list to make all those yummy dishes that we indulge in only once a year, and those social obligations you had rather NOT deal with. WOW! That is a long sentence! :-D
I made the comment recently that I may not put up a Christmas tree this year and thought I was going to insight a riot ! For many years I have put it up before everyone is here for Thanksgiving as the Grands look forward to it so much - almost like the beginning of their Christmas festivities. Hard to believe the holidays are here again - Guess I need to make a decision pretty soon..........
How about you - do you put up a tree every year ?
What ever your plans are for the weekend - Have a great one!
Most of what is going on around the "Dab of This and That" house these days are not things to post about. So..... I dug around in my pictures, and these are some I took when in Franklin, TN about 3 yrs. ago. After starting this post, I remembered I posted over 2 1/2 yrs. ago about visiting the old cemetery, so some of you may remember seeing them already.

This couple had 3 children and all died very young - very sad.
Took some of them to picasa and did a little editing.
The pictures pretty much speak for them self.............
