"vintageness"










so, you know i LOVE vintage....here are some lovely vintage images, just to provide some eye candy for you.......before i make an announcement i have been dreading to make......


























i have been dreading this announcement all day.....but have had to come to a decision today..........because of REAL LIFE , i have had to come to the conclusion that my little Etsy shop is NOT going to happen this month, and probably not next month.........and WHO KNOWS???......i am not giving up by any means.......and honestly, if i can possibly work it in.....i am still going to do a giveaway...i know just what i have been planning to do and am really excited to get it done......but alas, for now........it will not happen this week or next, certainly.
to enlighten you ...Larry and i each have a parent who is critically ill....my Dad has a terribly diseased heart and it is causing him such sickness, in fact , yesterday he was taken to the hospital via an ambulance because it was in the middle of a snow storm (in IOWA).......thankfully he made it safely there and has been undergoing tests and evaluation for a continuing declining heart condition.. now he is experiencing added problems to top the already expansive and devastating list of ailments.........
at the same time, my husband's mother , who has been in a nursing home for several years, has had pneumonia for the 2nd time in just a few months and is battling much difficulty concerning that, having trouble with breathing and eating and choking.......she is basically immobile because she cannot walk and can barely move, due to a stroke........which only adds to the pneumonia troubles.......neither can she speak understandable words....tho she tries so hard.....it is so very sad and so extremely heart breaking......she has had such a good spirit most of the time, but we are told her spirit is down, as well...who in the world could blame her???
needless to say......we have imminent family issues to deal with and we will be traveling to both parents...one in Iowa and one in Pennsylvania......
with so much on our plate, i cannot commit to something that i really need to devote time and energy into......
but don't give up on me, fellow bloggers!!!
I SHALL RETURN!!!......
i certainly hope to be blogging as much as possible,
it is therapy for me! ;-)
God's timing is best in any and ALL situations.......so i must yield to His will and timing for us right now!

Sorry to hear the news about your parents. It is TOUGH and HEARTBREAKING to see parents/grandparents decline in health. Will keep your family in prayers. Please keep us updated.

Sandi,
Sorry that you are having so many family difficulties right now. I will say a prayer for you and your family. Trust God. I hope that you are not going to do like your daughter did! She said that she was going to return and we all know how that turned out *giggle* well, I really would miss you if you did not return. I trust that God will direct you in the decisions that you have to make.
Love,
Judy

Sorry, Sandi, that your dad is doing poorly and that Larry's mom is so sick. It's hard to see them like that. I will pray for you all.
