Well, it feels like Seattle here!! In fact, I bet Seattle has less rain than we've had in the last month. Every day. Sometimes all day. Even when it's not raining, it is gloomy, dark, and cloudy. Everyone is trying to keep up spirits, but the lack of sun is making people grumpy and irritable. Plants and flowers are rotting from too much wetness, and trees are actually toppling over because their roots and bark are soaked. Today is the first day of summer (and the longest day of the year) and guess what it is doing?? RAINING. OMG, I just may lose it. Will you visit me in the padded cell?? LOL.
I haven't posted all week because I haven't been up to much. In addition to the gloomy weather, we are all anxious about keeping the business going and looking at a real possibility of being sold to another company. I know everyone is going through tough times, so why share my problems? All I can say is that we are now in a day to day survival mode, and if this isn't a real Depression (at least here on the east coast) I don't know what is. So with all this less than pleasant news, I haven't been in the mood to do much around here, and certainly can't do any shopping. But all is not bleak and miserable. When you can't do the real thing, what is better than doing some fantasy shopping? I'll show you some goodies I found a bit later, but first I wanted to show you a little redo that was stimulated by an hour or so of fantasy shopping.
You might remember this, that actually started out as a breadbox a while ago, then went through a few repaints and redos.
Then, I saw this....
I didn't want to change the color of mine (altho I LOVE this one)... but I thought, "what would happen if...." ---so this is what I did with a little black paint and a few small drawer pulls.
here's another view. Cool, huh?
On to fantasy goodies! I found a wonderful shop up in Connecticut called: www.americanheritageshop.com/. Kathy has posted some really inspiring goodies, esp the furniture, which makes me drool. I especially love these two pieces:
I love the color and aging.
And how much would I love to get one of these? I know sooner or later I'll find one locally.And this setting below is just so warm and welcoming.
Well, all of these goodies are putting me in the mood to do some tweaking! So I'll will see you next week -- but not before I again congratulate my pal Linda from Behind My Red Door on the birth of her new granddaughter! What wonderful news!
Have a good week everyone, and if your weather is anything like it is here-- stay dry!
