It's been a very slow week...okay, it's only Tuesday, but it's rainy and gloomy and I'm waiting for Sears to come and repair my dryer. I love how they give you a 5 hour time frame...that's 5 hours that I could be doing something constructive, like reading in the bathtub. So I wait and I thought I'd do a quick post.
All is quiet on the wedding front...the lull before the storm I guess. I want to thank everyone for the compliments on the shoes and all the tips for breaking them in. I'm still traipsing around the house in them, I guess I just like pain...or being tall. I received a lot of tips from a great blogger named Andie. She is a make up artist and knows quite a bit about weddings and how to keep the bride looking good. I now realize that I definitely need a larger purse for all the stuff I have to bring. I found a Bandaid product called a friction stick that glides on your feet and helps prevent blisters. Andie also recommended practicing with the shoes with wet feet, as that helps to stretch the leather. She really is a smart girl. Thanks, Andie!
I made a trip to Target yesterday for bar soap. Of course my cart was full when I left. I decided to add some pretty sheers to my bedroom windows...I have noticed how pretty they look in some of the rooms I see in blogland. I'd like to replace my blinds with bamboo like I have had forever in my living room, but the house next door is like 2 inches away and we need privacy. These are made of voile and they were only $4.99 a panel. I really wanted the crinkled voile but that was $3.00 more. Maybe I will change my mind. I feel a need for more bar soap coming on. I also picked up a new shower curtain and 2 books and a necklace and a candle. I bought the cute table runner in the first picture. I love the texture. Anyway...the retail therapy got my mind off things.
I forgot to mention that when I was out antiquing/thrifting on my vacation, The Husband fell in love with this picnic table. It's sort of petite and will look wonderful once we paint it a nice cream color. I'm not keeping it here, we have another area of the yard that is a bit empty. My bistro table will go here. Isn't it darling?
Well, that's all I have for now. I am just going to sit around waiting for Sears to come and then I may make that trip back to Target. I'm really having 2nd thought about the crinkled voile curtains. ;-D
I'm joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday.
