Life in review, a visit from my friend Kathy

Before I share the visit I had from my friend Kathy, I want to wish

all my loyal friends, readers, and followers who live in Canada, a Happy Thanksgiving.

Right before Labor Day (first Monday in September) my friend Kathy visited and wanted to go shopping.  She had several stores she wanted to visit and I was more than willing to put aside my clean-up efforts in my basement long enough to spend some time with her and catch up on everything that has been happening in both our lives.

The first place we visited was Tuesday Morning.

Halloween was in full bloom, even back then.  I even saw some Thanksgiving and Christmas offerings, too.

I have no idea what Kathy was saying, but I'm sure it was something she wanted me to see.

At that time, I was in full "Back to School" mode, so took this photo, thinking I might buy this puzzle to use in my journal I hadn't started yet.  Some of you may remember I had misplaced the altered book I had originally planned to use.

Of course, as much as I wanted to find bargains, I only got a couple. 

The large napkins (or serviettes) were nearly $5.00, not a bargain, but I gave half of them to Kathy so she could use them in her art.  The 6 X 6 inch paper was from Graphic 45, and it also was not a bargain.  I've yet to use any of it.  I also haven't opened the six small stamps I bought which I thought WAS a bargain.  I actually bought these six stamps for the key and the clock.

The other napkins were a much better bargain, and I also shared them with Kathy.  I can't wait to use this one, because I love the tropical feel.  As I was removing the large stamp from the bag, the "image" that was taped to the front came off and stuck to the inside of the bag.

Although we stopped two other places, I failed to take any more photos.  And since I didn't buy anything of relevance, or art related, I didn't take any photos, either.

Thanks for sharing this Halloween inspired time I spent with my friend Kathy.  I appreciate the time you took to visit and go shopping with me.  And let's remember our Canadian friends on their Thanksgiving, please.

Glad you had a fun trip with Sally, love the decorations. Here the shops have been filled with a mi of Halloween and Christmas stuff side by side, I just didn't see any Easter eggs yet! Have fun using your new goodies and napkins. Hugs, Valerie

I never seem to find anything at Tuesday Morning. Their stuff is really pricey for being a discount outlet type store.

The shops you visited with Kathy look really interesting, you must have had a good catch up on your outing. Enjoy using your new goodies, I think it may be the lovely napkins you use first.

What a fun visit. I haven't been to Tuesday Morning in ages, but I always find something when I go.

Well this was fun to be in on your shopping trip! I am in the midst of making a Halloween display so was interested in the Halloween things you saw. Love the napkins and stamps too!

Looks like a successful shopping day. I like those stamps a lot, and they are a bargain. :) I also love using little pads of paper. Catching up and shopping with friends is always fun. I think we all need more of it in our lives. Much better than projects around the house, but they need to get done. I'm a little behind in tat department. I need another vacation to get caught up. Ha-ha! Hope it was a great weekend. Hugs-Erika

Sounds like it was a really nice break from the basement. :) :)

What a great name for a shop! You certainly did get some bargains - I think you will find some great uses for those stamps - even the mystery one - have tried to work out what it is and failed!! Hugs, Chrisx

Love the French tower napkins -- I would have bought those, too. Looks like a glorious time, all the more fun with a friend!
