New at the Shop November 20, 2012
Will you do me a huge favor? If I am boring you with what’s going on at the shop, will you please tell me? It’s sort of all that I focus on these days.
Yes, my daily activities seem to fall into one of the following:
1. Looking for things to sell
2. Painting things to sell
3. Arranging things to sell
5. Not selling
Wanna be my friend? I’m not terribly interesting, but I mean well!
Okay, now that I’ve finished with all that, let’s get back to talking about the shop. Whoops! I need to add that to the list. 5a.?
Isn’t that a pretty tree!? Can I hear an “amen”? Well, you had better like it, because that will be the only tree you’ll be seeing at the Wonderful’s this year! (like that…the “Wonderful’s”? This is one of the things I love about blogging. I can just make up stuff like that!)
Let’s see…what else is new?
Now, check out the first pillow I’ve made, using the old French ticking (that blue and white striped number!). It’s like a canvas and I was told (of course I believed it!) that it was old French ticking from a feather bed. Well, I believe the feather bed part, because I had feathers everywhere! The fabric isn’t in perfect shape, but it’s much better since I soaked it in Oxi Clean. I’ve got a fair amount of the fabric, so there are more to come!
Well, besides the pillows, I have some new ironstone and this sweet little S/P tray. (That’s antique store lingo for silver plate.) 🙂
Oh, and last but not least, Betsy arrives home tomorrow night! Woo-hoo! The poor thing has to cross the country with millions of other holiday travelers! Oh dear!
Yes, that’s my little baby, on the far right after a recent West Point rugby game. (just the sport every mother hopes her daughter will play!). I’ve got her favorite chocolate/oatmeal cookie batter, ready to go, sitting in the fridge. Will that make up for the rotten flight? Probably not, but I’ll keep looking for ways to spoil her! We miss her (deployed Navy) brother and his wife and are putting a care package together for him, that will go out soon.
Here’s to gratitude and world peace!
