Follow Friday ~ Fab Finds for May 27, 2016

NOTE: Fab Finds will be on hiatus for the whole month of June.

June is going to be an incredibly busy month for me and my family. Events that month include the funeral for my mother-in-law, our third-oldest son’s wedding, reception, and open house, my speaking engagement for the Fresno County Genealogical Society on June 14th, and my wedding anniversary. Whew! Oh, and we also have another flooring installation to schedule in June too.

Fab Finds will resume on July 1, 2016. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
