An on-line store featuring many different items, some used, some new, some collectible. Weird, fashionable, usable or just pretty or pretty ugly. But never dull! I'll add a little history or background or just a little whimsy to the items I display here. I'll also write about, on occasion, the meanderings of my life, why? I don't know, I guess because I can and blogging is kind of like a journal.

Thanksgiving Is Over For This Year
Well, Thanksgiving is over for another year and now the mad rush towards Christmas begins. I had a nice Thanksgiving, although pretty much all I did was cook, clean up and cook again, and there was only 4 of us! But I had to go to the grocery because the meal I ordered forgot our mashed potatoes! The look of horror on my guests faces that there might not be mashed potatoes was too much to bear, so I had to venture out. How I wished it was 1621 then since the pilgrims didn't know about potatoes (mentioned in last blog posting). But I trudged on and going to the grocery on T-day wasn't so bad, although I did wonder about the few people I saw who seemed to be doing their weekly shopping. No where to go? No friends or family to be with? And the man I was behind in the checkout line, he had a large frozen turkey at 11:30 in the morning. Ugh, that will never work, but maybe he was going to celebrate T-day over the week-end, who knows! So, I was thankful for the lovely day, the lovely people I'd be spending it with, the good food and of course.... American football. What can I say? It's tradition!! So to end last week's theme of Thanksgiving for the scavenger hunter's at ESN I have found a few perfect aprons for your next feast at Embroidery Fashions Boutique.
