This, to me is a good day.
After I did laundry and cleaned house all morning (which is my usual Friday routine) I made a trek all around the thrift stores in South Asheville to poke around a bit. I’m still in need of ‘Smalls’ for my booth down at Sweeten Creek Antiques so I was on the prowl for those. As my luck would have it, I found nothing for the booth.
And everything for me.
When I can put an entire outfit together for $32 I’m ecstatic! The scarf was $8 at Ross. You can not walk away from that. The jeans were a $5 Thrift store find and of course the top is Marshall’s, $30. I’ll put a pair of boots I already with all this and I’m set.
Oh, and a big silver ring of course.
And this was in the mailbox when I got home and that’s never a bad thing. I also came home with dinner, an armload of old books and a good bottle of wine.
So about a month ago I got a very large turn of the century dresser from a very sweet lady named Dot. I finally started painting it last Sunday. The middle drawer had way too many issues so it took me a while to figure out a workaround for it, but I have an idea.
Words that strike fear in the heart of Big Daddy.
With any luck my neighbor Mark will be home in a little while ( I need his chop saw) and I might have this piece ready to take to my booth on Sunday.
I did go and drop a few more thing off at my booth on Monday.
It’s slowly coming together.
A pair of down filled pillows I made and several Fall chalk boards.
Tomorrow we are doing something I’ve wanted to do my ENTIRE life, ride a train.
More on that later!
Wishing you a wonderful Autumn weekend,
