Birthday Lunch

It is Saturday evening already!  The weeks sure do fly by.  I was supposed to leave for Edmond yesterday, but I couldn't make myself go without Jerry.  He wasn't feeling good, and he still isn't feeling good, so I didn't want to leave him home alone.  I have to go tomorrow though, because I have 3 appointments next week.  PLUS, Margaret and I have to have our birthday lunch on Monday.

My husband always wants to get me something for my birthday, but there is never anything I really need or want.  He said he would take me out for a nice dinner tonight, but that offer turned into a nice lunch at my request.  I thought it would get him back home earlier.

After our Mooyah burger and sweet potato fries, Jerry wanted to go to Home Depot.  While we were there I JUST HAPPENED to see something I wanted.  It was a tall shelving unit that didn't look too horrible, and it was only $29.00.  I asked him if I could have it for my birthday.  He not only bought it for me, he came upstairs and set it up for me.  It now holds all my boxes of beads.  I like it so much, I am going to buy two more of them to put in my attic.  Let me run upstairs and snap a quick pic for you.  HOLD ON..................

I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!

Here are my new shelves.  OOPS!  I see I forgot to remove a piece of green masking tape that has a level line on it.  
Until today, all of those boxes were on the rolling metal cart.  I still have it full as you can see.  It takes a LOT of stuff to make jewelry!

Someone asked me how I organize my jewelry.  You are looking at it!  All the boxes are labeled with my labeler machine.  All the seed beads are on the top shelf.  The rest are just there.  I go through them so much, they don't stay in much of any kind of order.  

I just recently began hanging my new style of beads on the wall BECAUSE, you can't return things unless they are in the original packaging.  You can return things to Fire Mountain FOREVER, so I need to keep them returnable.  

But how nice is my birthday shelf for only $29?  I love it!  My birthday is actually August 4th, but I'm supposed to be away from Jerry on that day.  I want to stay and finish organizing my beads now, so I may decide to cancel all appointments and just stay here.  Besides, Jerry isn't feeling good, and I want to be here to baby him.  I better start by going down to fix him some supper!

Hugs, Joy


  1. Hope Jerry feels better soon and that you have a lovely lunch with your friend. Very neat shelve and you are so lucky to have a wonderful husband who buys you nice things.
    I have been meaning to ask you what the pink and cream quilt is as I love it would love to make one myself.
    God bless from the UK

  2. Happy Birthday Joy...hope you enjoy Aug 4 immensely. Can you tell me the depth of the shelf and how wide that shelving is? We need something for the office and everything Costco had was too deep and long. Again, many happy returns of the upcoming day!

  3. Happy Birthday Joy. May your day be filled with many treasured moments. Love reading your blog and seeing all the creative things you do.
