A tease for Sisters

Do you have one of these?

If you do - save it - 
if you don't - find one.
Doesn't have to be fancy.
Doesn't have to be old.
Just needs to be a cigar box.

Then watch for my 
Sept 2nd post . . . about 
"Fall Findings" and a 
Sorority Sister swap!

Well it is 
hot, hot, hot here in So Cal!

No complaints from me - 
we have been so very Blessed 
with a nice cool summer so far 
that a few days of 105 is OK.

"Whatcha been doin' Karen?"
I wish this - my house could use it.
But no. Just working.

And by the time I get home, 
I just want to veg out.
I guess this is what is referred to
as the lazy days of summer.
When it gets close to the end -
and we're ready to begin
fluffing for Fall.

That's what got me thinking about a swap.

Hope you like what I have in mind!

Have a great day! XOXOXO

When I was a kid, they had 'cigar' boxes for pencils etc. Haven't seen them around here since.

What a fun find. I can't wait to see what you do with it. Now as far as coming over here, when can you come? Hugs, Marty

A Vintage Chic said...

How exciting, Karen! I have one...all ready to go!

Sorry it's been so hot for you down south. We had ONE 101 degree day on Tuesday, then back to our fogginess & cool...just the way I like it!

Can't wait to hear what you have in store for us...have a wonderful day & stay cool, my friend!

Well that sounds exciting. Where does one look for a cigar box? Hmmm...

sissie said...

Hey Karen,
I guess I better get busy looking through my stuff for a box.

Sounds like fun.

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

That sounds really fun Karen!
I will be on the lookout for one.
We got really cool yesterday and last night it went down into the 40's! Oh that felt strange. Today it's warmed up nicely and this weekend is going to be quite warm.
But it reminded me how quickly it can change around these parts!
Autumn is not far behind.
We're off to the State Fair this weekend. I love fairs just like I'm a kid again!
Big Hugs,

Marsha (Sassy Mini Dolls) said...

Oh, YEAH, I've GOT cigar boxes!!! Anxiously awaiting to hear all about Fall Findings!!!

We beat you by one degree, it was 106 yesterday!!!

Thankfully today it's cooler . . . 90 somethin' . . .


Scrap for Joy said...

I have a box all ready to go...I will patiently await your instruction.

Lisa said...

Oooh! I can't wait!

CHERI said...

Just the mention of FALL makes me giddy. The heat here in south GA has been unbearable most all summer...some days heat index up to 110 or more! I have never sweated until this year! I will NOT complain about being cold this winter...or so I say now:) Now where can I find me a cigar box...hmmm.

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

Sounds like fun

agypsyangel said...

Interesting; cant wait to find out. It seems like all summer its been 97 or higher with high humidity...Ready for the fall.

Barbara said...

I've got one or two around here somewhere! I'll be awaiting further instructions fearless leader!!

Hugs XX

Christy said...

So Karen if we cant find one what is one to do? I spose I can buy something like that or a cheapy box of boyfriend Eric's cousin just had a baby! LoL! PERFECT!

I really want to see what you have planned and can't wait for Sept2nd!

Here in Ohio the weather has actually been unbearable for weeks on end at least in the Cincinnati area. With the humidity and high heat it's been TERRIBLE!!! However, I can't complain about the weather today because this has been the first whole day Ive not had the A/C on and the windows open. Now that was a treat!

You take care {HUGS}

sewingseeds4U said...

I'll have to hit my father in law up for one...Sounds like fun. I'm trying not to complain about our weather because we have had a mild one here but gosh darn it's been HOT! Don't you hate when it doesn't even cool down at night. Oh well, the best of SoCal is on it's way. Glad to have you back. Patty

Mimi said...

I AM SURE it is going to be fun!!!
I will have to get one, as I have none!
HOT, wow, yes, southern Calif has had quite a mild summer I thought!!
it is nice and cool here for several days!!!Lucky for us!!
have a great weekend

Diane said...

I have about 20 of them I have bought over the can't wait to see what you have intent was to make purses.....but it hasn't happened yet....I think I have too much stuff" and too many ideas.....oh well, I LOVE my "stuff"!!!

Nancy's Notes said...

Sounds like fun Karen! I have one, but it's a purse! It's hot here too, surprised to see it is in the 70's this morning, that is great!


Patty in Oz said...

This sounds like fun! Can't wait to hear more. I'll ask a cigar smoker in our family if he has an extra box to spare...I don't have one. I remember as a child using a cigar box for my pencils and crayons. I can recall the smell...memories visiting me this morning.

You are so creative. Thank you!

Have a great Friday sister & stay cool with some iced tea!

debi said...

Oh, you've got my attention! Looks like something fun! But, I won't be here on the 2nd. Will I still be able to join on the 6th?

Melissa Miller said...

We all missed you sweet Karen!
Sounds like a great swap! :)

Parsley said...

Found one at an antique store! Thanks for the advice.

Leann said...

Well now I'm a woman on a mission...
Can't wait to see what's gonna happen.


Zuzu said...

Thank you for your sweet comment over at my blog, Karen!

My goodness, since you started your group, things have really taken off for you, yes?

Happy weekend to you!

Home and Heart said...

Cortney Lyon said...

I can honestly say that today was the first time that I ever took my time looking through an antique store and it paid off! I found a great cigar box and it was only $2.00! Yippy! I an't wait to see what you have up your sleeve for this one!

The Chateau of Remnants said...

The Paint Splash said...

I don't have a cigar box so now between canning projects I will have to run out and find one. Looking forward to what you have in mind. Debbie
