Weinachten

I know that its incredibly cheesey- but when I look at this bag I think "vine" and my mind immediately changes it to "weinachten" (vine-ach-ten) which is german for "Christmas". So there you have it. I had a lovely weekend decorating the church for Christmas, celebrating my boy's sixth birthday, and having sleigh rides at our church Christmas bash to wrap it all up. So, Weinachten it is.



It has those soothing warm chocolate browns that are always a crowd pleaser.


Accented with three of my Pride's and Joy's. Those buttons.
I had a woman very thoughtfully, graciously drive out to my house last week to deliver a large jar of glorious buttons from her 82 year old friend. The top button of this collection is from that amazing gift.


Three inside pockets, as the pant pocket forms one that closes, plus another pocket behind it.
As usual, there are two pockets in the side panels.
Frohlichen Weinacht!
Leave your bids here until 8 pm, cst.

Ok, about Weinachten....this is the sort of thing, or EXACTLY the sort of thing that I wouldn't mind finding in MY stocking.I suggest you quickly make another one, don't bother with decorating churches, birthday bashes for your kids,sleeping or other things that might distract, get your priorities in order.Someone.

exciting and fruitful.
Maybe a good time to add to the pressure by saying that I'm thinking of pulling WAAAAAAAAAAAY back for January.
Just thinking for now...

Wow what is going on with all this crazy biding. I was holding out for another bag for my girlie but it's not looking good for me. Maybe I better come and get the other bag that I got. Let me know when it's good for you Joyce.

Looks like Mel's fabulous friend is the winner at $155.00.

Joyce is out with a bunch of girlfriends watching a movie about chipmonks, I think. She said something about Chip and Dale anyways...so she'll let you know about payment and delivery after you email her at brijoy@mts.net.

Thanks for your support.

Thanks so much friend for bidding for me last minute and all.Now, what works best for payment, shipping and such?Does puralator pick up in Niverville?Do you take credit card? "Frohleche Weinachten" and "kling-a-ling-a-ling".......or should I take payment to Darfur on my way to Virden?This has been a good day.Thanks Joyce

joyce said...

I'm going for coffee tomorrow morning to Virden, could I pick up bag and bring you payment then?

I suppose the other option would be to meet up with you somehow on Friday as I'll be going to my parent's house for our annual tree decorating party.
