Saturday morn. hello
Hi Anj, How's it going with you? Know you are always busy. I'm working again this week, not as fun since I've already seen all the "treasures" last week. Had a couple of fun customers yesterday though. One girl bought a couple of hanging lights. (I think they show in one of the pics on holidays). One was a gorgeous crystal one and the other a white frosted look with gold scrolls. I really liked them too, but had nowhere to use them. She said her friends/family keep trying to get her into modern/contemporary furniture and dark woods and paint, but she just "feels" best with lighter colors and loves things like these lights. I told her that it is her house and she should go with what makes her feel good. The other lady looked like she was wearing baby doll pjs. I swear the bottoms were so short I was afraid to look down and the top was a black ruffly sleeveless thing! She bought some high dollar items though, so I was happy about that! LOL
Hey, that cd idea on crafts is cool. I have a book of old timey Victorian Christmas images too. Do you know what that tool is she said she used for the holes? I was thinking that maybe a hot icepick and a hammer to make holes until she mentioned the tool she bought.
I want to get some spackle (think that's what it is called) and make some of the snowballs I see on the Prim sites. Want to roll them in the mica flakes to give them a little sparkle and then just pile them in a bowl with some greenery. I had seen them last year then didn't get around to doing it.
I havent seen the new issues of Paintworks that you said you bought yet, but my Painting and Quick & Easy Painting both came and both have a few Christmas patterns I really like. Some are Renee Mullins, and I also like the ones by Nancy Wood. Naturally, they are all the "cute" type--that seems to be what catches my eye more than the landscape or more serious designs. Course part of that may be because I just like doing quick, easy projects too! LOL
Had a great time TS shopping with my two neighbors on Wed. We hit four TS in another town. Would have hit a 5th, but it was closed--they clean on Wed. the lady told us. ;o( Didn't spend allot but got a few things. I haven't taken pics yet. Found cupids to save for Valentine's decorating, a big tray with handles to paint, a neat Christmas plate and a couple of small ones with nice designs, a scotty dog ceramic piece for my girlfriend, and two craft books(one Christmas, one garden type). Didn't spend much, but it was fun. I took them to a deli over by where I used to work once upon a time. I'd forgotten how good and fresh the food is there, so we all enjoyed it too.
Then DH and I went to the Fair that evening. We splurged and had a Cinnabon! Must be a million calories in those things! The smell just gets to you, and we have low temptation levels! LOL Weather was perfect, and we enjoyed it.
So how about you? Any good stuff going on this week? Hope you have a...
