Health Report, Shopping trips and Advertising Trade Cards

Just a brief note as I have been taking a break from my blog  This has been due to a continuation of health problems.  I mentioned in my blog a few months ago that I was being treated for Breast Cancer.  I am happy to report that I see the light at the end of the tunnel as I only have about 17 Radiation treatments.  It has been quite a challenge driving 80 miles round trip 5 days a week but the appointments are short so we get home quickly.

We do have errands and take advantage of being in a bigger town.  We hit Costco weekly along with shopping for groceries at Raleys.  I think this week a visit to Hobby Lobby just might be fun.  I have not been embroidering very much with these daily (M-F) drives but have been working on eBay.  I am still buying Advertising Trade Cards and selling some on eBay.  The weather is also cooling down and I feel Fall is in the air.  I will share one of the Trade Cards I like.

Old Vintage Victorian Scrapbook Life in the 1880s Reward of Merit Children

I have been busy working on Antique Scrapbooks, removing some trade cards, keeping others on album pages.  I am expecting another album in the mail and some individual cards I ordered.  It is so much fun to look at all the pictures, some with advertising.
