I've cleared out a nice 6 foot by 6 foot area in the back room of my dads house.As I've mentioned before I am dealing with almost 15 years of hoarding and a man that doesn't think there is anything wrong with the current state of the house *sigh*.Though I've given up on fixing up the house like I had hoped while I was here since he no longer wishes to work with me I don't feel bad about getting to Alaska as soon as I can.While I am here though I'm still going to try and do what I can.
One thing I was glad to have found was some silverware that belonged to my dad in the early 60's.Blame it on the Spaniard in me but I saw that and instantly claimed it as my own!I mean he has 2 other sets so its very much NOT needed here so it will have a new home in Alaska with me.
I love the little atomic bursts on them.I also love that my dad got these when he use to work at a gas station in college...I guess it just shows how informal our society has become.You'd never find something like this at a gas station now,let alone a silverware set that has appetizer forks and other serving utensils.
And on to more serious matters now.I just wanted to thank everyone that has kept Vince in their prayers and don't stop praying for the little guy!I also wanted to put another person up on your pray-dar (that's cute right?I'm clever like that).I want you to meet Dori over at I am NOT my breast cancer.
I think too many of us have a "it can't happen to me" attitude.Here is the kicker,Dori is 26 years old.That's right,26 years old with breast cancer.Regardless of age we all need to be aware that it COULD happen to you and why its so important ladies to keep up on your paps to screen for cervical cancer and your mammograms to screen for breast cancer!I see this happening to more and more younger people.
Starting now through the 21st of August I will be offering 20% of all my Etsy sales to Dori to try and help her with her growing medical bills.I'd appreciate anyone helping spread the word on this too please.Again now through the 20th you can treat yourself to some pretty vintage AND do a good deed,its a double win!So shop my etsy shop and spread the word my friends!
