No Yard Crawling...

It rained....
so, I sought inspiration from Sandy Koepke
a designer from California
this is one of her projects....
and it's simply marvelous!!

Wouldn't you just love to live in this house!!
A girl can dream....

We're gonna do some yard crawling this weekend!
Yep, getting up early Saturday morning to do some good ole' junking
that is, 43 miles of junking
it starts in a town about 5 miles from my house
I'm going to be in junking paradise
with all my cronies
I'm getting excited just thinking of it
this girl cannot get up early for work
for junking, I'll get up in the wee hours of the morning
good thing I work from home
ya know, the big girl job
the one that pays for all my junking!!
It's going to be so much fun...hopefully, Wilderness man will accompany me
he can drive while I scout the places along the highway
Gotta plan in mind
So are you envious yet?
Maybe just a tad?
Okay, we don't have all the cool shows like you do in
Texas, Seattle, and California
but, we have the YARD CRAWL!!
Wish me luck!

New Items & a Little Musing....

Okay, I'm off to a stellar week..
at least for me
I was able to add a couple items to the website...
and here they are...

 actually, these two chairs below were not added because they're  are in my booth
hence the dreadful pics
both these chairs I reupholstered...
different fabric than usual
say, what you say...
but, I love this fabric and I'm trying to diversify somewhat
$85.00 each

 Ice Cream chair below was reupholstered in a nice black fabric with hydrangeas
have two of these as well
and they look WAAAAAY better than this pic
38.00 a piece
 Love this primitive cupboard...hang it or sit it on a table or floor and
magic in the making!! $139.00
now for a little musing

"D" is for Dreamy, Drooling & DA-Bomb....

All words that describe these beautiful rooms....

Funny thing, there's a theme that is prevalent in all the pictures
it's WHITE...
I love white...but, when it comes to my own decor
it's not always white
 I recently purchased a sectional couch and it's not white
its a light colored green
I've been looking a long time, I mean a long long time, for a sectional..
I wanted this one from Pottery Barn
 but it was $ 2500.00...
and I think that's ridiculously expensive for a couch...
I paid 800.00 for the one I purchased
Haven't gotten it was back ordered!
it was on sale, and they had already sold 15
funny thing though
the guy asked me if I wanted to get the couch scotch guarded...
he did his little spiel about "it costs blah blah blah and if I didn'tt ever use it over the course of 5 years
they would refund my money"
I laughed and said "you don't understand, furniture is very disposable to me...
I probably will not even have it in 2 years, let alone 5"
My current couch has been there less than 2 years..
So, another reason why I couldn't justify the $2500.00
plus. I'm just too darn cheap!!
Being in the antique business makes you always think you
can buy things at auction for less...
However, I think I'm going to splurge and get the floor lamp from Pottery Barn
the one that is in the pic above with the sectional...
it's 319.00...OUCH!!
but, its really cool...
so, here I wait patiently for my new couch to arrive.
I'll take some pics of the room when it arrives
Hope ya'll have a good weekend!
Wilderness Man is coming home tonight...he's been outta town all week for work
I missed him...

Crazy, Stupid. Love....

Last night was rainy and dreary...
Wilderness Man is out of town for work...
I couldn't get any yardwork done
I'm totally ignoring the fact that I have to clean my garage out
yep, the garage I can't even park in...
so, what the heck, off to the movies I went...
yes, just me, myself, and I..
my friends all think I'm crazy when I go to the movies by myself...
but, really...
I'm not there to talk to anyone...
I'm there to be emersed and entertained by the movie...
so I decided to go see
Crazy, Stupid, Love

Gotta get in some chick flicks sometime.
it was, actually, it was really good.
It has a great line up of stars...
and it starts out really slow
and sorta
but, hang in there...the ending is really good
and it all comes together!!
Out of 5 (5 being the best), I would give it a 3.5...
it was worth the $9.50 entry price.
So, if you get a minute and want to get your mind off
all the things that need to get done...
go see it!
You won't be disappointed.
