Thank you for your kind comments on my last post. After re-reading it, it sounded like a real bummer of a post. For that I apologize. I will try to do better. ha ha
Isabel and I went to Monticello last weekend. I took this cute cabinet/dresser that I found at a garage sale the day before. Luckily it was already painted. All I had to do was distress it a little and add some wallpaper to the door. I had so much fun with my screen project and I had some leftover smaller pieces, I just thought, "why not?" I think it turned out very cute. It is an older cabinet and it has a label on the back that says, "Lullaby, Children's Furnishings." Very sweet. If I had the room, I would definitely be keeping it.
While we were walking around the mall doing a little shopping, a very sweet lady approached me and said, "I think I know you from your blog." Her name was Cindy and she told us how much she loves reading our blogs. She wasn't sure she should say anything, but I told her that I'm so glad she did. So, Cindy, if you are reading this, it was so nice meeting you. Thanks for stopping us to say hi and for your kind words of support for our blogs.
On our way home a funny/strange thing happened. We got pulled over by a motorcycle policeman who told us we had to wait. Apparently Borac Obama and his entourage were coming up the freeway and they had to clear it. I tried to get a picture of the bus he was traveling in, but it was going too fast.
On Saturday I delivered a shopping cart to my friend Kate. She was very happy with it as was I. So for you, Karla, here is a picture of Kate's cart.
A couple posts back someone asked what I do with the vintage baby dresses I buy. How do I display them? Well, here is an older picture of my collection of vintage baby dresses. I have since added the two new (old) ones I recently bought. I just love them and never get tired of seeing them hanging in my bedroom window.
On this post, I shared with you the goodies I received from Rachel, a sweet reader of my blog. I just got word from her yesterday that she received my package so now it is safe to show you what I sent to her.
vintage hanger with decal and ribbon, decals, flowers, vintage barkcloth, wallpaper, vintage card, linens
rick rack, hankies, vintage fabric, lavender sachet, tiny shelf, picture frame, calling card, ribbon
Now that I'm done with my LL job I will have more time to work on projects. Unfortunately I got called for jury duty on Friday. This is a first for me. Apparently I am suppose to call on Thursday to see if they need me to show up. I certainly don't mind doing jury duty, but the timing kind of stinks. This weekend we are heading over to central Oregon to see my in-laws for Memorial Day weekend and my MIL's birthday. We will be golfing, horseback riding and maybe we will try to squeeze a little thrifting in as well. Should be a fun weekend.
