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!
