Happy Monday everyone! I hope y’all are having a great start to your week. My stomach was churning a little this morning when I woke up at the thought of going to work, but of course there’s nothing to worry about. I’m so used to dreading Monday mornings at my old job that I keep forgetting that there’s not much to be anxious about now :) Hearing some of my favorite songs on the way in to the office this morning was definitely a great boost too – you can’t sing along with Lady A and not be in a good mood!
We’ve been having so much rain lately that I’ve hardly been able to get out and paint. I know some of you girls bring your painting inside when the weather gets yucky, but I just don’t have the space for that (between the boychild, the dog, and my own klutziness that would totally be a disaster waiting to happen!). I’m working on finishing up the nightstand I showed you in my last post, and I’ve been on the hunt for the next piece also…
One thing I’m looking for is a small table or bench to put in my entryway. The space is empty (still) and I really want to put something in there to make it more welcoming. I stopped by about 5 local antique shops over the weekend and picked the brains of all my friends who were working but so far I’ve come up empty handed. The entryway is very small and although I did find a few nice pieces that would have fit, they were a tad out of my price range for just now – I had some money to burn from my very first paycheck, but not very much. I’ll have to set that aside and keep saving for the next few weeks so I can broaden my search.
There’s definitely no shortage of ideas! My friend Pattie Mae was a huge help – I can’t wait to get in her store and start spending my paychecks! If you’re in the area, definitely stop by Pattie Anne’s Vintage Land – I swear I could live and die there!
In other news, I’ve been working on the design for some business cards. I would have much rather been out working in the garage, but the weather has been so bad we’ve just huddled up inside for the past several days. The sunshine finally did come out yesterday for a few hours, so The Boy and I were able to get outside to enjoy a popsicle, and then the three of us went down to the Tavares splash park…it was such a pretty summer afternoon that we ended up stopping for DQ on the way home! It’s a good thing I’m so busy at work that I barely have time to eat lunch, or all the summertime treats would start to be a problem around my waistline!
One last thing – just a quick housekeeping item to point out. I’ve added a new tab at the top of the page for items that are currently available for sale. If you’re local, please let me know if you’re interested in anything listed there!
