Random Things

I've been super busy with craft shows and trying to get my shop ready for the holidays that I haven't written in a while. I thought that a Random Things post would be quick and easy!

1.  I love the fall season here in North Carolina, especially the cool, crisp air and beautiful colors that the leaves change to. From October thru December is my favorite time of year!

2.  My car must have a sign on it that everyone except me can see that says "Hey moron, pull out in front of me!" 'Nuff said.

3.  If I could, I would adopt every dog/cat/other animal at the shelter and provide them a loving home. As Bob Barker would say, "Don't forget to spay or neuter your pet!"

4.  I wish I lived in an old shabby chic cottage, out in the middle of nowhere so I wouldn't be surrounded by not so nice neighbors. And there would be plenty of room for my girls to run and play.

5.  I wish we could eliminate this sense of division that runs rampant throughout our world. I mean, why can't we all just play nice and be friends?

6.  And on a lighter note, or maybe not, lol, I ate Zaxby's for lunch and it was sooooo good!

7.  And as I am typing this right now, we are under a torndado watch! The weather has been crazy here these past few days.

And these are truly random things!

...Um, is this thing on.....? So, it's been a while since I've posted. I've just been super busy. That being said, have you ever felt like you were super busy but then when asked about what you've been doing the response is "nothing". :)  Work just takes a lot out of me-I wish I didn't have to do it, but such is life. I always say that I'm waiting to win the lottery but since I never play it my chances of winning are pretty much nil....Hmm, why is this post sounding sorta like a bitch session? I really don't mean it to.

I just feel so random today...guess that's what Monday's do to me........

On the store front, I've committed myself to a very aggressive show schedule this fall. I have a show like every weekend! Fall is the best time to do shows. I'm a wimp in the outside heat of spring and summer...fluffy girls and hot weather just don't get along. :)

Ooh, this past weekend I went to the Habitat for Humanity store. I was actually looking for a wooden picture frame that I could make into a hair pin display but didn't find what I was looking for. I did find two awesome light fixtures-the kind that go over the dinner table-but didn't get them. One was vintage and made out of wicker, i think. And it was only $4 but I didn't get it because there was paint all over the piece that goes against the ceiling and I wasn't sure how to get it off. The other light was glass and it was in the shape of a flower, but it was $35. Not too shabby, i think, but being that I know nothing about replacing a light fixture I didn't get it either because if it wouldn't work the store doesn't accept returns.

But I did buy these awesome knobs for my kitchen drawers. I just love them! They are perfect with my kitchen because it's painted yellow.

And i also found this awesome metal fruit basket, and it spins a la lazy susan style. It was only $2! I'm thinking of somehow using it for craft shows....

Ta ta for now!
