Isn't it great when you open your front door and there are boxes sitting there? I had gotten a gift certificate to Piper Classics (http://www.piperclassics.com/) which is a fabulous country store in Pipersville, PA -- about an hour from me in the Bucks County suburbs, not far from my office. Here's what was in the box -- eeewww, I love opening boxes when I know prim goodies are in there! After working so hard these past few weeks, I really needed this boost. So, first I got a shelf -- just haven't been able to find one like this in my TS hunts: Another view: ok, the pics are yucky. Still trying to figure out how to get a clear pic on a shadowed wall. It is tough getting the lighting right on the camera! (and, I think I moved a little, too. LOL)
I picked up this painted candle when I did my thriftie hunt a few weekends ago. Couldn't decide where to put it, so finally, I rearranged a few things on my mantle. I have a stand made from a drawer that was in my bedroom, and moved it to the living room. I really think this candle is so charming -- worn and prim! Do you like it next to the rusted grater redo?
And... look at this great sampler!I just love it! Now I have to decide where to hang it. When I decide, I'll let you know!
And finally, lookie what I made with some old homespun and old picture frames! The trio are hanging behind my bed.
I couldn't leave you today without yet another pic of my hairy boy (are ya bored yet??LOL) -- he doesn't have his ottoman anymore, so he has now taken over the sofa! Doesn't he look comfy? Oh, to have time to take an afternoon nap!!!??!?!So, my prim-pals, that's my story for today. I actually have a night off tonite (!!!) --just sent the final draft of the project I've been consumed with to my boss for review. I suspect I'll be working from home tomorrow since we are expecting that ice storm everyone's been getting. BTW, congrats to all my buddies who were happy on the scale this week. You guys are doing so great!!!! And it was SO much fun to see Janene's stubblies again -- she has cute feet! Go check out her blog!
Have a good night, all. Thanks for stopping by....
