Last Sunday, I bought 3 ravens, from a woman, at a local swap meet. They looked so real. One had his wings outstretched. By Wednesday, 2 had sold. I wish she'd had more to sell. I attached one of the ravens to a skeleton in a Halloween display at the front of the store. What an impact it made. Spooky.
Can you believe it? 101 posts since April of this year! Well, I hope you like this pendant. It's a rhinestone cross within a rhinestone heart. The chain is sterling. All you have to do is put me on your fave blog list, and blog about it. Then tell me a joke. The funniest joke wins! Happy joking!!!
Ok, I don't know what's going on with me, but I seem have so much energy, I can plan and execute a yard sale, all the while peeling, cutting ,mixing, and baking 2 pies. This is the first time I've baked peach pies, although, this year, I've baked raspberry and and apple pies for the first time too. I'm not Betty Crocker. I'm a nervous baker. I can cook, but when it comes to pastry, Oy!
These peaches are really little. They came from my neighbor's tree. She is so generous. She gave me tons of plums ( look at an old post of mine. I made plum jelly), like maybe 36 jars.
My father-in-law, loves peach pie, and he's coming and selling at the yard sale, tomorrow. (See last post for time, if you are in the area). So, he'll be surprised. I hope because he will like it, not that it tastes badly.
We went to our friends', Paul and Joe, house for a party. Everybody there was dressed to the hilt. Guy and I love this Mexican artist couple. So I drew a unibrow on me, and bronzed Guy, darkened his hair, away we went.
We took a sugar skull class. We learned how to decorate sugar skulls with icing and all kinds of findings. This class was my first experience at the best craft and art store anywhere, called; Zinnia. It's in So. Pasadena, Ca. Check it out. Zinnia.com. They give classes, and if you like the Somerset Magazine, this store is creative central!
The second time in two weeks, I've redone my booth. I sold two farm tables this weekend. Whoopee! So, this time, I put in a large white counter, an Ostrich upholstered chair a cane back upholstered chair, and the cutest ottoman I've seen in years.
I put up grape vine overhead, with some bright green leaves. It looks gardeny. Can you believe, but these sunflowers aren't real? I love the cherub lamp. I put a Rachel Ashwell lampshade on it.
So, here's hoping I have to change the booth again, in a week!
We have a 1950's house, and our bathroom certainly reflected that. It was way behind the times. Now, it's a clean, soothing, pale, spa. The colors are a grayish blue and 3 different shades of white. The glass tiles in the shower are a combo of beige, aqua, and gray blue. What a pleasure!
The cabinet behind the toilet came with 3 white baskets. I matched the blue of the shower curtain, and painted them.
Guy wanted one of those arced shower curtain rods. It was really easy to find one. We got it at Lowes. It gives us a lot more space in the shower.
