Anyway, I did get out yesterday, altho is was cloudy and a little dreary, it was warm. I went to the little concession shop nearby. Isn't it cute? It's behind and attached to a quaint little church, still very much in use.
This part is outside, and the inside is too cute also, but I chickened out pulling out my camera inside. Ya know, people can get a little weird about that and I don't blame them...So what did I get??? THIS!
There is a reason I needed to get a big rug for my living room, altho I'm sure the cat lovers out there already know. When you have a hairy furball (or two, or three), they tend to find the one clean area on the rug and cough up a nice juicy hairball, which stains the rug. Plus, I paint in here, and even tho I'm careful, I do splatter here and there. I'm due for a change in carpet, but I didn't request it -- it didn't make sense for me to get a new carpet for me to stain again. So.... thus the flat weave rug. Has a tad too much blue for my taste, but the reds and beige's do match my sofa and it does make the living room bright and cheerful -- and matches the actual blue carpet underneath. Total cost: $20.I also got to finally finish painting my dresser in the bedroom. Funny story with this dresser -- I saw someone in my apt complex throwing it out about 5 years ago. It was a shabby chic green then, and in perfect shape. It has wonderful detail, as you can see. Anyway, it must have been 110 degrees that day, and I was on my way to work... but how can you let this go in the trash? So I d-r-a-g-g-e-d it to my apt...up the steps...into the apt... and then needed a shower. LOL. For a perfect 6-drawer dresser/highboy, it was worth it! I had repainted it several times but never liked the color. Now it is a dusky grey-blue and I like it! So does the hairball, who is checking things out... such a camera ham....and me trying to push him off my lap.LOL
