Our vacation was really fun; to see our old friends and spend time with our families. We sure miss them all. We moved to Oregon from California four years ago, so we only get to see them once or twice a year! I'm sure you all know how hard it is to be away from your kids and old friends! But enough of my boo-hoo-ing!
I did some yard-saleing and got a few "goodies" this weekend. Found a cute little chicken planter that they were asking $5, but she sold it to me for $3! I was cleaning it this morning and saw that it is a Royal Copley and it's in great condition too! What a deal! Also, I'm a sucker for picture frames and found two: one is a large oval frame and the other is a rectangle both are made of wood; I think I'm going to paint them both off-white, and use them for family pictures!
I haven't been doing much on my lamps lately, but I do have a shade that a friend would like and I'm going to work on it today. She wants me to make one of my "doily" shades for her, and has been saving lace and doilies for it too! I already have the ribs covered and the lining on, so now the fun part begins! I'll show you a picture when it is complete!
Hope you all have a great week, I'm happy to be back! I have been looking at a lot of your blogs lately and have found some really great posts, you are all so busy!
