Bonnie: Would you like some plastic multi-colored Christmas ornaments...I
have several boxes that someone who bought them on clearance gave me for who
knows what reason that I will never use.
They'd be cute on packages but I don't do that kind of fancy wrap job.
If you'd like them I'll send them, just email me off list with your postal

Donna, I will have to check them out! Our congregation will be
doing<br>charity wrapping again this year and they want me to be in charge.
I don't<br>like to wrap presents conventionally, so I really need some of
that 3"<br>ribbon for less than $5.00!!! I've also been collecting
Christmas<br>decorations from garage sales and 90% off sales at craft stores
to put into<br>the ribbons and on packages as well. I think we'll need some
large boxes as<br>well as shirt boxes. I think this year we'll be working at
a mall instead<br>of the church fellowship hall.<br><br>Despite all the
rain, we haven't had too much of a problem with mosquitoes<br>here. The
chiggers have gone crazy, though. More rain is expected<br>today...all day.
I'm going to rush out between rain drops and try to put<br>down the
newspaper for the driveway extension.
Tomorrow I can haul compost<br>and such to put on top of it, then put down
some mulch.<br><br>It sounds like you really made a haul with your

purchases. At some point,<br>send us a photo after they've been placed so we
can admire them, too!<br><br>Blessings,<br>Bonnie <br><br>-----Original

Festival...<br><br>I wish I could have been out gardening, but with being
allergic to deet, and<br>all those virus carrying mosquitos, just didn't
want to chance it...<br>and I hate getting bite up!<br><br> <br>Besides
visiting with Vera for the day, I went to harvest days for garden<br>metal
things. There is a guy who sells yearly there at reasonable pricing<br>and
uses thicker metal to create his. He also
creates- so most many of his<br>things are orginial designs, not the same
things you can find in a store.<br>Been buying for years and everything has
held up well- although most of it<br>ended up at mothers house

over the years after she seen them....<br><br> <br>So I bought an arbor,
2 plant stands, and a obelisk - that filled the van! I<br>also couldn't
resist a santa riding a reindeer at one of the craft booths,<br>so that had
to come home too... along with a sweatshirt and latern that will<br>be used
for family Xmas presents.<br><br> <br>Bachmans is an importer warehouse near
here. A few times a year they open it<br>to the public at 50 off wholesale
pricing- big bargains!...then they really<br>hook you with the buy one at 50
off and get another one free on a couple of<br>promo items!....... but you
never know just what they will offer. They sell<br>to other wholesalers and
most stuff ends up in high end stores, hallmarks,<br>and florist shops. This
time, I bought some decorative pots, pillar stand,<br>ribbon, a few more
santas and other xmas decorations. I mean where else can<br>you buy 50yards
of 3inch ribbon wired quality stuff for less than 5.00? -<br>Ok- you guys
probably do

know where, but around here it is unheard of. :)<br><br>
<br>Donna<br><br>----- Original Message ----<br><br><br>And what all did you
fill your van with from those sales, Donna? <br><br>I spent the full morning
yesterday out in the yard, starting the fall<br>clean-up. DH scalped about
an 8' section of lawn for me on the North side<br>of the driveway so I can
start the process of extending that bed. I'll be<br>putting in a new lasagna
bed there for items I've been holding in pots late<br>this summer until I
could get a place for them. I've been lengthening it<br>about 4-8' every
year. In another 5 years, I should be up to the garage.<br>Then I'll have to
start on the other side of the driveway. That will be a<br>little more
expensive because I'll need some sort of barrier--landscape<br>stones or
timbers or something. DH chipped up the most recent wood pile<br>from recent
storms and trimmings for me that sat throughout the heat of the<br>summer.
He also chipped up my

green trimmings so they will compost more<br>quickly.
