Boy, has it been a rough one....and I'm not one to complain.
I am normally Pollyanna, finding the best in any situation and
Always making the most of it.......
But I just gotta tell you, I had a hard time with all of it this past week.
So let's recap, shall we?
Daughter on vacation so kept two extra dogs (brought total to 9)
Fed cats daily and watered yard.....easy enough you say....it's almost 3 acres.
Well, let's go on.
Had the busiest week at the Shoppe in along time.....a good thing right?
Well, that would be if you didn't have wrist surgery...and no help.
And if one of your furr babies didn't get suddenly ill and pass away....
And if someone didn't leave a whole truck load of antique furniture outside my closed
Store, literally blocking the entry door on the day of my surgery.
And on and on and on.
But it was all dealt with and a new week begins.
I can always count on Terri to bring me back to life.
She is one of my favs that loves my art and actually "gets me".
She called wanting a birdcage doll.
Not a problem, but I told her NOT to tell me where she saw one
As I didn't want to see it because it might influence my creativity.
These are the parts I'm beginning with.
She wants it by Friday (I can't convince her you don't rush art)
So stayed tuned for the finished product.
Thank you, Terri, for kicking some life back into me.
And, of course, my favorite church
Bazarrnival of all time was during my recoup time.
Didn't stop me though.
I found this wonderful old cabinet for a song.
I had overlooked it in my rush to try and see everything...I mean this sale is huge.
Then I overheard a couple talking.
She said "it's wonderful"
He said "but it would have to be stripped"
She said "but it could stand upright or lay on it's side"
He said "where'ya gonna put it"
She said "I'll find a place"
He said "Let's think about it"
She said "hmmm"
I said....."excuse me, sir, I like to buy this cabinet"
And I have also just about finished with the estate sorting.
This is one of my favorite old planters I have come across in a long time.
Guess I really can't complain when all the things that come my way are
So very wonderful as this.
The sock monkey and bear hooked up.
I've already told them I'm not raising their kids!
Who checked on me and brought me back
To my life as I know it.....
It's not easy, but it's mine!
