Yesterday I headed over to Joy's house to pick up some stuff, drop off my shopping cart and help her unload and set up for the show she is doing today and tomorrow at the Oregon Gardens in Silverton. I always have fun with Joy no matter what we are doing and yesterday was no exception. Her sweet son, Dusty was such a trooper and was helping us as well.
On my way to Joy's, I realized that I didn't have my cell phone. When I got home there were 8 messages waiting from me, two from the kid's school and two from my husband telling me why the school was calling me. Apparently my sweet 6th grade son burned his fingers in science class and was trying to get ahold of me to pick him up. Oops! By the time I got home he was already on the bus so I just had to wait for him to arrive home. He was not too happy with me. Of course I got the, "where were you? why didn't you answer your phone?" questions. I felt horrible. His poor fingers were blistered so we put ice packs on them and sat on the couch together to watch cartoons. That seemed to help. I looked around for my phone and couldn't find it anywhere. I even called the restaurant where we had had dinner the night before to see if someone turned it in there. No luck.
Isabel called me and told me that the check I wrote to her bounced. Oops! I forgot to deposit the Monticello check. With my hubbys accident on Monday and not having a car on Tuesday and Wednesday, I completely forgot to deposit the check. My bad! Again, I felt horrible. Now I needed to go to my bank and get cash to give to Isabel, cause if I wrote her another check they would put a hold on it because of the bouncy one and she needed the money to pay bills. What started out to be a fun day, was turning pretty crummy.
My husband came home from work and look at what he brought me. He said he thought I could use some cheering up. Guess what else? He looked through my purse and found my phone. I swear, I looked in that thing at least three times and didn't find it. Of course the battery had died which is why the school couldn't get ahold of me. I think I'm losing my marbles. At least my phone wasn't lost for good.
Not a ton of stuff, but I really like what I got. A footstool base, old metal cup holder, vintage baby ben clock, light green wood frame, scallopy doll cradle, two new vintage pillow tickings and box of 12 small salad/dessert forks.
I sell a lot of vintage doll beds and cradles. I usually give them a make over with paint and a ticking mattress that I make to fit the bed.
I also bought a dresser at SA which I talked them down $15.00 on the price. Yippee! I didn't get a picture of it yet as it is still in the back of my car. Its a cute older one with three drawers, a wavy front and old wood wheels. It will be adorable after a painting makeover. I also stopped at JoAnn's and got some thread and the February Romantic Homes which I can't wait to sit down and read with some hot tea.
Kind of a low key weekend. Basketball and dentist appointment for my daughter, car hunting for my hubby and maybe a trip to Monticello for me. I need to get busy and freshen up my booth. I may also try to list some things on ebay. Lately I have been toying with the idea of opening an Etsy shop. I would love to hear from those of you who have one, whether you think it's a good idea, if it has been good for you, etc.
Have a wonderfully fun and fabulous weekend!
