This is what it looked like when I got home from our trip last weekend.Fortunately I don't think it broke. The top fell off and landed on a nice soft pile of leaves we never got around to raking. See, sometimes being lazy pays off.
My trip over to Monticello Wednesday was pretty quick. I had sold a cabinet to Sue and she had graciously let me keep it in my booth until I could bring in a replacement, which I did today. I'll be going back to do a little more work on the booth on Monday. I did however, find a little cutie for me. Guess whose booth I found it in? That would be Sue.
I saw this cute little pink drawer before, but today when I saw that it was still there and 15% off, well, I decided to treat myself. I already put a little scrap of some vintage wallpaper inside. I love this wallpaper and wish I had a lot more, but unfortunately this is the very last piece of this particular paper. A perfect fit in this cute little drawer now residing in my bedroom.
On my way to my doctors appointment the other day, I allowed a little time to stop at the Goodwill. It has literally been weeks since I have been thrifting and I was really needing a fix. I found one thing I just had to have. This adorable (or will be when I'm through with it) buffet.
I love the smaller size. This one will get the shabby treatment with some creamy white paint, vintage glass knobs and a little distressing. The best part is that it was 50% off! Yippee! The bad part? Bringing it home and stuffing it into my already crowded front room. Normally I would just put it on the front porch until I have time to "work my magic," but I really don't want to get another letter from the HOA.
A couple months ago I briefly mentioned that my 15 year old daughter got her first boyfriend. I have been pestering her for weeks to let me take a picture of them and she finally relented when he was recently over watching movies.
Pretty cute picture, I think? She of course doesn't like it much and wish I had taken a better picture to share with the world. ha ha
And finally, say hello to my new little friend.
I have been wanting one of these for a long time and I finally got one from my kids for Christmas. Of course, they had to get me a pink one. I'm not sure how many songs it will hold, but my daughter was nice enough to help me put a bunch on, so now I'm in business. The only problem is that now that I have it, when I use it, I want to sing along which is always met with protests from my family. What? I'm a great singer, really I am. (Not!) I always joke that I may not be a great singer, but what I lack in singing ablility I make up for in loudness.
I want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year! Looking forward to a fabulous and fun 2009! Make sure to head on over to Isabel's blog. She is doing a fabulous giveaway for something I'm sure you will love.
