Shopping for the Shop August 26, 2012
I was happy to hear that my hot pink desk set has found a new home!
A few of my gift show orders have come in and I placed another order today! Sort of like Christmas!
I’ve chosen paint colors for the shop, in the greige and mossy green tones. Bob started building a craft “island”, with wheels for the shop. There’s lots to do!
We went to mass last night, instead of this morning. I had a hard time getting to sleep last night. I ended up on the couch, because I hate messing up the guest sheets! Besides we have the comfiest couch. I have so much on my mind these days, thinking about what I need to do.
I went to a couple of estate sales today. The advantage of going on the last day of the sale is that you can get a great price. The disadvantage of going on the last day is that nothing is there! Today I went into a little house that had belonged to a very old couple. It was almost sad to see the dust that had layered upon itself in places. Not because dust is offensive, but because for whatever reason, it was no longer an issue. Eye sight, mobility, energy…you know what I mean. I saw that happen with my dad. This was a man who never allowed dirt to exist in his home. When he lost his eyesight, it was no longer a big deal.
On to more upbeat subjects, like shopping!
At another spot, I found this hydrangea sculpture/candle holder. I could find a spot for this in our home somewhere. And that’s a rule I have when purchasing something. Would I want “it” in our home?
