By Invitation Only

You'd think that by time I got to 500 posts, I'd be more eloquent... more versed on topics of interest... that I'd be closer to reaching those 1000 blessings! You might even think that my timing would be better, but truly I didn't even know this would be my 500th post until last night. So I thought I'd do something fun... You know my mom, Shabby Shoppe, really isn't into computers (I do her FFM posts for her and handle her email) and she's been dying to see all the pictures from Marburger. Remember, 200 photos (or something like that). Well, I put all the photos into a magazine for her (one of the benefits of having a magazine, right?!). Made the pictures nice and clear for her... Fun for her to show to my aunts, etc. --Ok, so since it's my 500th post all of a sudden...=) I fancied up the magazine real quick and made a "Special Reserved Issue" of PORCH available for my blog friends only, to celebrate 500 posts.

It's 60 pages of all photos - no text! All Round Top!! You have been some of the sweetest friends I've known! Friends to laugh, cry & pray with. I couldn't take you all with me to Round Top (wouldn't THAT have been fun?!!) but I'd love to share some of the flea marketing scenery with you! The cost is $12 (I really, really wish I could send you each a free copy!) - That's the actual printing cost - just so you know that I'm not making a profit =) It's available by invitation only so if you would like to purchase a copy please contact me ( ) with your email address and I will be more than thrilled to direct you to the site! Believe me, it's a perfectly scrumptious mate on a cool Autumn night!


  1. How sweet you are that you help your mum and bless her in such a way. God bless your creativity and may He infuse you with supernatural energy and FAVOR.
