(I guess I should have ironed them for a prettier picture)
Our Vintage Sale last week went well despite the city removing some of our signs from the Highway. It was so fun to see so much of my stuff go bye bye and even more fun taking a load of stuff to Goodwill on Monday. Funny thing though. Isabel went to the Goodwill Outlet in Portland on Wednesday and spotted a piece of ugly fabric I had donated. She knew it was mine as it still had its garage sale tag on it.
I did manage to make a trip to Monticello with a load of stuff. Again, forgot to take some pictures. Our booths are full to overflowing with good stuff so if you are in the area, stop in and take a peak. Our special booth will be set up in the Garden Room until October 13th. Not sure where I'll put everything after that as I'm sure it won't all fit in my regular space. Oh well, I'll just worry about that later.
In case you're wondering what I did this week while I was being lazy. I reserved a bunch of movies from the library and watched most of them. Have I ever mentioned how much I love my library? I do. It's great! They have lots of dvds and if they don't have what I'm looking for, I can just reserve it online from another location and they will ship it to my library. So fun!
Isabel and I also met up to go see this movie. It was pretty good. Not the best movie ever, but a fun Chick Flick.
It's now Saturday morning and for once I have absolutely nothing planned for the weekend. I think this will be an excellent time to tackle a few projects I have been procrastinating. Remember these chairs?
This weekend they will be painted and recovered. Okay, now that I have said that, I am committed to doing it. You will hold me to it, right? Also, I have special plans for a dress form that I took apart and another project I have been thinking about that will use up some of my barkcloth scraps. So stay tuned!
Recently I read on a couple blogs that the newest issue of Romantic Country was finally out. I just love this magazine and wish it wasn't a quarterly, but a monthly publication. I had to go to 5 stores to find it. Since it was so difficult for me to find, I thought I would buy an extra copy and give it away on my blog. And since I love to do lavish giveaways, I'll include some extras as well. Oh, you know, maybe some vintage wallpaper, pretty buttons, etc. So, if this sounds like your cup of tea, just leave a comment on this post. I will pick a winner on Monday morning.
Well, I hope you all have a wonderful Fall weekend. Get lots done or nothing at all! Be back on Monday.
