That is my Princess’ new favorite saying. Whenever something goes wrong or doesn’t go as planned you can hear her exclaim “Oh Peanuts”! I’m not sure where it came from but I find it adorable. But then again I find just about everything my daughter does adorable. I had a woman in swimming tap me on the shoulder earlier this week and tell me how her husband and her always comment to each other about what a pretty daughter I have. It was very unexpected and nice comment. I wish I could take credit but I can’t. I think she’s perfect and I’m the luckiest person in the world to have her.
No, my post isn’t about my daughter. I had an OH Peanuts moment recently. When I first looked up and listed the previously mentioned creepy holiday decorations there were several that had sold recently for $60-80.00 but none currently listed. I felt confident mine would sell for a good price. The next day after listing mine another seller listed two in a lot for less then mine and their listing isn’t closing until after mine. I already have a bid for $40.00 on one of my listings but none on the other. Now I don’t think they will do as well. Even if I only sell them for $40.00 I am happy with that profit but I was hoping for more. If only that other seller would have waited a few more days to list theirs. But I guess such is the life of eBay sales and friendly competition.

When we got home J got out some boxes marked Christmas. We have his and hers decorations and very few ours so we weren't sure what we would find. One of the storage boxes contained some decorations I picked up early this year at a yard sale. The yard sale was held in the back yard of this home and the yard was filled with tons and tons of treasures. I bought a mountain of stuff (literally a mountain) and only paid about $30 for all of it. Have already sold about $200 worth throughout the year of things I purchased that day. The Christmas items I purchased got put away and forgotten. As I pulled out the items out of one of the boxes J exclaimed "that's kinda creepy". I have to admit it was but in quaint old fashion Christmas kind of way.
As I have been known to do with everything that comes in this house I looked up the item before deciding to use or sell. These
I have two old fashion carolers listed separately for $40 and I already have a bid on one. One persons creepy is another's christmas decoration.
