I have decided as of July I will no longer be working Thursday through Sunday. Working four long days is too much. This past week in that time period I worked 55 1/2 hours. I had no time to do anything obviously. I don't want my whole world to be work. My bills are getting to a comfortable point that I can semi breathe. I'm hoping to be free to craft a little more.
As promised, I got some things last week on my one day off from the thrift store and one of the prim/country stores I go to. Which now has a website http://www.shopaudreysattic.com/. Now you can see some of the good stuff I see too!
I LOVE the patina on this high chair with the back cut off. My BFFs happened to be pricing this when I was in the store. I asked if either of them would be buying it and they said no. So it came home with me.
This little beauty I got for like $22. It started out $65. I saw this thing months and months ago, but I was not paying that much. It got marked down to $45 and when I went in they happened to be giving 50% off the red tag so then I snatched it up. I also got some fake chestnuts to throw in a bowl or jar.
Another cheese box to paint. I have two now. I need to get cracking!!!lol
Awesome right!!! This will be a new pattern for Steve to cut out and paint or stain. He said the scroll saw we bought at the yardsale will work great for this. Oh yeah it was a Goodwill find. Steve wanted the iron thing with a clothespin on it. I'm guessing it's a recipe card holder.
Who can pass up dried corn? I happen to leave some out all year. After last fall when I had Indian corn and thought I'd keep it til this year and ummm it got bugs in it. GROSS!!!!! So I bought the already dried stuff. lol
I would show you my flowers for summer, but one of them died all already. LOL. I need to go get another one to replace it. Steve planted them and has been watering them for me since I have been so busy. Today is my day off to get everything done. Laundry, errands, and a massage (my fibro has been acting up and I'm not sleeping that well again.) So my friends I will cut this short. I have a few projects I've started but not finished so let's see what I can get finished today to show you tomorrow. It is suppose to be beautiful and cool today. I have a little painting and staining to do so I can do it outside. See you tomorrow I promise! lol
Oh and Steve and I will be redoing the booth tomorrow so I will be sure to take my camera. He got a really cool idea for separation walls of the next booth.
