the thunder was so loud that even this seasoned arkansas storm watcher was jumping out of her seat. the tornado sirens even went off but i don’t think that there were actually any here in conway but they have been reported in other areas. once again our water level has risen in the yard. good thing that the house not on a slab.
we were planning on head to the shoppe for first thursday shop-n-sip. ben has been working on a storage trunk for the shop. but he decided that it needed tweaking and since i didn’t relish the idea of taking 3 kids during a rain storm where they couldn’t run around outside we opted out.
but the trunk looks awesome don’t you think. i’ll take it on saturday. i painted it a very pale blue and the inside is lined with more of those pages from shakespeare.
yesterday i ordered myself a twin. did you know you can do that? yep and they are on sale too. so i bit the bullet and put in my order. this one is staying home with me. she wont be a shop girl. i was watching you’ve got mail last night and have aspirations of making myself dresses like the one that meg ryan wore at the end. and of course i have sketches and sketches of more fitted apron ideas i have been dying to try out as well.
i am really bad about this but i have had 2 people award me with awards. a loooooong time ago nikki
awarded me with “you inspire me” award. and cecile
handed me the “you make my day” award. and i am send the whole i’m rubber you glue response to both of them because these awards are mutual. 🙂
when i was trying to decide who i wanted to give these awards out to i found that alot of people were crossing over so i am combining the awards.
1. catherine at red shoes blog
, i feel a kinship with her. i love her furniture and designs and she can always make me laugh and smile about the craziness if life.
2. laurie at charming designs
, i am in love with her birds. every one she makes just evokes that squealing gush of excitement.
3. stephanie at chasing threads
, she makes the most beautiful quilts and applique and embroidered items. and i an envious of her rainbow supply of thread.
4. eren at this vintage chica
, we share an understanding and love of funky green coffee cups and how one can never have too many.
ok so off the finish cleaning. there’s a piece of furniture in it for me waiting at the shoppe
