Vintage Cups and Saucer, and things I gotta DO!!!

 My $2 antique store find... Maybe Pickles on Pizza can tell me if $2 was a good buy.  Not that I really care, the color matches my house and $2... I had it right in my pocket!
2 cups, 1 saucer...
 Made in the USA!!?? Seriously, we made stuff here?  When I adopted my daughter from China, we were suppose to take gifts (customary thing in China).  They always recommended we take things made in our country... do you have any idea how hard that is?  It was before etsy, of course!  I guess it is a little stupid to buy a tie made in China, shipped to the USA and returned to China and given to someone who might just have a relative that made the darn thing...
These little guys are back from last year.  I want to try some paper clay vintage inspired Halloween decorations.  The cute pumpkin I saw at the vintage store this weekend was
These were from TJ Maxx (my secret lover, in addition to Tom Selleck)
New this year... Martha Stewart with 40% off coupon at Michael's
Today I'm working on: 
 putting it all together
and these: 
make mod podge something or other
and this: 
make custom gum balls
Plus I have 2 hats to crochet for a friends daughter, make a custom fawn pendant, and run.  I'm sitting here in my running clothes and am headed down to the tread (DREAD) mil (thanks "S" for that term, so true!).  I haven't run since Saturday, I've had some nasty virus and basically have just laid around watching "Teen Mom" and crap I recorded and never watched... like the final episode of LOST, which I FINALLY watched yesterday.  To the writers of LOST: Hun????  I'm still lost and am glad I got that last show over with!!!!
and... just so everyone knows:

a little plug about my BABY/KID HAT DRIVE
Please feel free to share this on facebook, twitter, YOUR blog, knit/crochet clubs, etsy, anywhere!!
As most of you know, my daughter was adopted from China and I left a little piece of my heart there.  I'm collecting hats to keep the children and babies warm in the winter.  Many live in orphanages that are without heat.
1. make a baby hat, toddler hat, or kid sized hat 
(you can take the non-crafty way out and buy one(or more!!) if you must)
2. Send to:
David Shellenbarger
c/o chinamommy
146 E Main
Caledonia, MI 49316
3. I need them in my hot little hands BY Oct 31, 2010.
4. I'll take care of shipping them to CHINA this fall.
any questions- please feel free to email me!!
