Goodbye, Hello

We're back! We decided to take a quick trip up to McCall for the week. We had a GREAT time, except I forgot my camera... so no pictures for you. I know you're broken-hearted, but time will heal. Or maybe this will do. Just pretend the shiny, happy faces are Jeff, Bethany and Claire.
We didn't do a whole lot, just relaxed, ate, slept, swam and did a little sight-seeing.
As always, it feels so good to come home, even if there's a mountain of laundry hiding in my closet. I came home to some Happy Mail from the lovely Erin. Yummy Vanilla Chai Organic lotion, the cutest scrapbook of Claire, Body + Soul magazine and little sticky notes. THANK YOU ERIN!! I love my Happy Mail!

I also came home with this GREAT find! Well, I didn't find it, Jeff's grandma gave it to me while we were visiting her this week.

It's a Dressmaker C-55 A. I'm dying to know what year it was made, but I can't seem to find the info on the internet, and the manual didn't even have the model # on it, I had to search to find that. But I do know that grandma had it serviced in 1998, so even though it's old, it should work just fine. I'm excited to try it out! Here's a couple more pics...

I hope you all had a great week and have an even better weekend!

Glad you liked your happy mail! I loved making that little girly scrapbook!

Kelly said...

You got great happy mail! How fun to have a cute scrapbook done for you! Great idea Erin!
I'm glad you guys had a fun little getaway. I was wondering why I hadn't heard from you last week. We'll have to get together this week.

Oh and really cool sewing machine too! I'll expect to see it in person Saturday! :)

Andrea said...

Wow!! The happy mail and the new sewing machine ... both very cool.

I can't wait to see the mini album ... Erin has a gift for those, I'm lucky enough to have a few from her :).

Glad you've taken your dressmaker for a test drive, you'll be ready to put the pedal to the metal on Saturday!
