I'm working on four lampshades today (and for the past few days!) They are shades that someone would like to have re-covered - the same as before. Two of the shade are off-white and two will be of styrene, again off-white. I do this from time to time, but it is a little boring - I like the fancy shades that I can CREATE, using my imagination. But alas, this does pay a few bills - and this time it will pay for next weekend camping with our car club friends.

However I did go yard saleing this morning! I found an artists easle, and pallet! The pallet has lots of old oil paint on it and I am going to hang it in my shop as artwork! Other found items today were three cute ceramic holly leaves with berries, to hold candy or nuts; a book by Robert Lewis Stevenson and illustrated by Jessie Willcox Smith called "A Child's Garden of Verses". Also a basket and a small stool to recover.

Tomorrow we are heading out to the Prineville Classic Car Show with our club. It ought to be fun, last year we won a prize for the most club members in attendance, as well as a few others for I can't remember what exactly (we even won a prize too - a car club jacket for my husband!) Hopefully we will do as good this year!

Oh, and one more thing I wanted to show-and-tell: I put a "decorative expression" on my kitchen wall; went to a home party a while ago and found that I just loved this saying, take a look! It's from a company called Uppercase Living and they have tons of expressions and you can invent your own too - My sign says: "Nobody knows the TRUFFLES I've seen" What do you think?

Not too much else new right now, so y'all have a great weekend and I'll be checking out your blogs too!

Love your saying. Alas, the one in my kitchen would probably say, 'Nobody knows the truffles I've eaten, but just take a look at these hips and you can guess how many I've eaten'.......

Am having so much fun perusing your blog! Found you on Kathy's Cottage and am going to add you to my faves list -- EVERYONE needs charming lamp shades!

Warmest regards, Ronda
