On Tuesday, Joy and Isabel came over to work on some projects. Here's Joy cutting out a liner for her shopping cart. Notice the dresser/ cutting table? I got that a couple weeks ago on craigslist. It's in great shape. Just needs new knobs and a little sanding and it's good to go.
On Thursday I headed over to Monticello to straighten up the booth before the big sale they are having this weekend. On my way over I made a few thrifty stops and got these goodies. Pillowcases, floral quilted sham, rose fabric box, silver sugar/creamer set, metal mesh holder thingy, clip board, tool caddy and bag of trim pieces.
Oh yeah, I forgot to show you the picture of the box I sent to Heather for her Junque in my Trunk swap. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of the inside of the box, but you can see them on Heather's blog here.
Awhile back I was asked to post some blogging advice which was pretty funny as I was and still am a blog dork and I am amazed each and every time I am able to put together a decent post. One thing I think I should have added though, was it's important for people to be able to email you through your blog. A lot of times I don't want to comment, but I want to send an email and I am always frustrated when there is no link to do so. You can either put a link on your sidebar to your email address or like me, put it in your profile. Boy, do I sound bossy, or what? But seriously, sometimes someone will comment on my blog and ask a specific question. When I go to their blog to answer, I sometimes have no way to do so other than leave a comment which isn't always appropriate.
So, soccer this morning and then I will be a painting maniac. Hope you all have a truly wonderful weekend!
