FABRIC FEAST AND GIFTY FEAST!!!

There will be no turkey feast here in Amerika Samoa (not that we haven't been invited, we just need some down time).

So....feast your eyes on my new fabric purchases.




Prices here are going up...and up...



Grabbed some more zippers... at 50cents a pop....who can resist?



This fabric caught my eyes imediately...


Got in the car and my husband goes..."How do you think we are going to get that fabric to Virginia"?.................... Ahhhhhhhhhhhh....and I a still going ahhhhhhhh but we will get it there....



Now for the Gifty Feast from FRIENDS....this post is really picture loaded...

I just love these bags...



soooo wonderful....



Now my husband is going...how on earth are we going to get all of these things to Virginia.... I will let him worry about that....I am still going "ahhhhhh"



Lava Lavas



I laughed when I got this Hawaiian air key chain...how many times have I flown on that plane????? countless... This is the only plane that comes in and out of the island...



Jewelry....



Clutch



Love this bowl, she gave me a wooden hut too but I can't seem to find the picture...too lazy to go and take another one...maybe later?


Isn't this the cutest door hanger?



Yep...gonna need another suitcase. I went from having very few items from Amerika Samoa (except fabric) to my cup runneth over....will have lots to remind me of the island and wonderful friends!

Hope all of you are enjoying your Thanksgiving day!! We will probably go and take one last walk along the beach.....

A winner has been found for the guessing game below.....she guessed the right thing I was doing, that will be announced tomorrow. Thanks for all of your responses....it was fun to read while waiting...and waiting....

Wonderful Thanksgiving gifties. Very cute. I think you need to get a lot to take with you, for special memories of your time in AS, for years to come.

Happy Thanksgiving.

You were probably buying more fabric or sewing.
I always think I read all your posts but what day are you leaving? And I hope you found a house with a large sewing room!

Love all the totes and purses...the clutch is divine! Lovely to have some touchable memories!

I am laughing over here thinking the same thing as your husband. How is the world are you going to get all of that to Virginia? Enjoy the sun, you will be covered in quilts soon.

Nope I refuse to guess again. 8-p You didn't moderate the comments so we could cheat---errr validate our guesses.

Lovely fabrics though. You could always get the Big one price priority box and send it to yourself. And if you don't know your new address, send it to mine. Ha ha.

The best thing you will take from there is your fond memories...you were so lucky to enjoy another way of life for a bit.
