Time to download pics from the iphone camera today.
The balloons and makeshift bouquet were were what I came home to after a long "You're No Fun, Mom" kind of snow day. After hearing that several dozen times that day, I opted to schedule a few appointments that evening with you Chumps so I could spend time with the people who love me and think I'm kinda fun or at least pretend they do! :)
I think the girls could tell that I left with hurt feelings and a little resentment (was it the squealing of the tires backing out of the driveway that did it)?
Anway...upon returning home a few hours later, this is what I found on the kitchen island.
Of course all was forgiven immediately.
Another snow day today in wintry Michigan and my friend Debbi said it best on her status update on FB, calling today "Mental Shift Monday".
And that's what we did around here. Made a mental shift and kept a safe distance from each other. :)
"Snowy Days and Mondays always get me down".
Anyway, back to business:
Here's some more random pics on the iphone to once again remind you that I am thinking about you and your projects while I'm out and about. Last week I worked my one day a month at Not So Shabby and saw so many cute things in other vendors' booths. Here's a sampling:
Pillows for Rebecca: (From Karen's booth at "Encore Designs".
An amazing teal buffet in Rebel Reclaimed Booth for Ann's craft room :
A table runner for Deb-Cat. (Not sure whose booth, but look for the vertical striped walls).
Rustic Hanger Hooks for Lisa's laundry room:
A paint-able gem for Jamie's dining area:
A shabby chic window for Ruth's cottage project:
Of course I get selfish and think of me, myself and I from time to time and snapped a pic of this table from Hegg's that I thought would look great in our back living area:
The linen covered chairs are really what make it so great in my mind!
And more shopping for you Chumps. I love my job:
Back splash tile possibilities for Michelle:
(sorry, not much of this style left...don't bother to look for more). Shoot! Great price though!
Love this style and how neutral it is.
More pillows and lamps that I could find a home for-for just about any Chump:
And sweet drum shades with some great choices for bases at Lowe's.
And last but not least...when I started snapping pics at Lowe's, I noticed that all the screen showed was bright orange. I had dropped my phone at a client's house that morning and thought for sure that I broke it somehow.
I kept snapping. Kept showing orange. Kept snapping. Showing orange.
Then vented by texting Debcat that my phone was broken and how will I survive without the camera app??!!
Suddenly it dawned on me. When I dropped my phone, I had replaced the phone cover over the camera lens and it was snapping a picture each time of my phone case.
And as Ken so lovingly reminds me when I tell him stories like this, Madonna's "Blonde Ambition Tour" from the 90's continues. :)
And one more thing:
My mini kitchen remodel is progressing. Here's a sneak peek of the cabinet transformation:
Just ordered this "Warm Chocolate" Bamboo flooring this morning:
Hip Hip Hooray!
And need to unload this granite island counter top.
(That's my pendant light's reflection on the surface).
We're gonna "Craigslist" it, but thought I'd put it out there for you lovely Chumps first.
4 ft x 32 inches
$300 or best offer.
A solid surface counter for this size island would cost $700. I just priced it out. Ouch.
Doesn't come with the cabinet below it. We think that will get chopped to pieces when we have to remove it next week. Email me if you know someone who this might work for.
Stay warm and drive safe!
