New Years Resolutions!! Again? Really?

Nope. Well, not the same way anyway. This year, I'm going to do more than write the same list of inspiring goals, visions and fantasies that I've been writing every other year. Lose weight, take a class or two, exercise more, and on and on. Probably if we merged all ours lists, they'd all be pretty similar. Especially, the part about how the whole thing has totally slipped the mind within a week.

Not this time!! A group of us are going to focus on keeping these in view all year. There's nothing like sharing the energy to help everyone in the group keep an eye on the prize. Some are calling this a Vision Board. I'm calling mine My Life Book because it's all about the important things in my life. The first one in my book is a print out of the home page of my swim team's web site. Resolution: Get back on the team for the 2011-2012 season.

Anyone want to join the group and stay focused on the prize? Add your system or resolutions and we'll all share...

Why is it...

That in the middle of thenight I can write fantastic blog posts in my head but when I get up and come in here??? It's empty space and cotton balls?

Our goal with this blog was to amuse and educate...and I'd like to think we do.  For next year, 2011, I am personally going to try harder to be more faith in posting.

Meanwhile, if you have questions about eBay or Amazon or Bonanza selling or you're befuddled by how to do something, post a comment and ask about it and we'll find one of us with experience to answer you.

Have a wonderful and Merry Christmas.

See you next week.

Tis the Season

When you see this guy -

You know this guy (pointing up and down) is NOT far behind...and

Neither is the crappy attitude some folks get...Grinch This Christmas!

DSR Photo Challenge: Tis The Season

This month's photo challenge was "Tis The Season." I had a lot of ideas for this photo, but kind of ran out of time to really play with the idea. In the end - I settled on this shot. This is fudge made by my Sister-In-Law. Each year the hubby's family has a get-together around Christmas and she sends everyone home with a "care package" of items she has made. This year included a pecan pie, fudge, peanut clusters, some kind of cookies (haven't tried them yet) and a cheese ball. I told the hubby to save us about six pieces of this fudge and take the rest to work with him. He hasn't. I've been good....but today....I think I hear a piece calling my name! :-O

Tis the Season... to panic!!

14 days til Christmas, how does this happen every year? Seems we have so much time to shop and prepare and then bam alll of a sudden the calendar is our enemy.
We just bought our Christmas tree yesterday, now to get it put up today, oh but I need to work, I need to list because tomorrow is the last day to launch auctions that will close in time for holiday shipping... yes we are already on the very last week for Christmas sales!
So take a deep breath, do what you can and don't beat yourself up if you didn't accomplish as much as you planned (yeah this is a self talk here). Start thinking about 2011, always love the fresh start of a new year. You can do whatever you set your heart and mind on don't ever forget that!

Our Online Family

The online world is so huge I often wonder how our wonderful family of friends ended up together. The story with our group is we all met in a variety of places and call the yahoo group OBS home. This is truly a family and many of our lives are like soap operas as you read through our posts. We all share many things and have grown together and I want to take this time to thank the person that brought us all together.

I would like you to meet Beth who sells at the  Depression-Glass-Warehouse on Ebay and many other venues. She has over 850 very unique items in her store and you can buy here with confidence.

I would recommend checking out the large selection of book's that Beth has listed. She has many different kinds from antique to children's and with over 500 books to choose from you can find a great holiday gift.

There is a nice selection of collectibles that are quite unique so stop by today to browse this great selection. You will find many one of a kind items and she is happy to accept reasonable offers also.

 You can also check out her top 5 Depression Glass items in a variety of beautiful colors.

There is a huge variety of  items and if you are looking for that special item for a gift this is the place to shop. You can be sure your item will be packed quickly and with care and headed your way as soon as payment is received.

She has helped so many of us in so many ways. She started this group and has always encouraged and yes at times yelled at us when we needed it. We truly are a family and like any family we have our laughter, our tears and even arguments.

I just wanted to take a moment to say Thank you to a very special lady that means so much to all of us.

December Rose

I don't think it's a record, but we had snow here in eastern NC for the first time in December for as long as I can remember. It began Saturday afternoon and didn't stop until well into Saturday night. I am not a fan of snow but it did set the stage for getting into the Christmas spirit. We decorated our Christmas tree early yesterday morning and seeing the snow covered ground while we worked certainly made for a nice Norman Rockwell Sunday morning. I went outside with the dogs pretty early and took a few pictures, my favorite being a pink rose in full bloom. The rosebush belonged to my mom, so it's special. The rose blooming in December was special, the rose and greenery surrounded by snow made it magical.
