Hola my little chicas!

Here it is Sunday...weekend almost over.  Why do weekends go fast and an hour spin class drags on for like a year?????

Atlanta delivered us some incredible weather these last few days.  No humidity, no clouds and a slight breeze.  Perfect.  I did my install on Friday and it went really well.  I love it when the homeowner hugs me!!  Nothing is better than that :)  I sound desperate huh?  For hugs?  Maybe...I take it when I can...

But enough about me.  I am giving something away again.  Yeah...yeah...blaa...blaa...cause I want too.

So heads up, here it is.

Let us look a little closer.

Baskets.





Beautiful standard white pillowcases.  The embroidery comes with....

3 white carpenter's folding rulers that you could put in a glass jar.  Or just go around the house measuring crap.  Your choice.

2 vintage thingys.  With words on them.  Do I have to explain everything????


And of course fabric.  1 1/4 yard.  I always include a little fabric.  Maybe because my basement looks like the clearance bin at a Hancock's or Joanne's.

Closeup.  Linen.

All for you.  No strings attached this time.  You don't have to make your bed or clean out your linen closet.  Just follow.  Period.  Easy.

Now, I told you I bought 2 things from the Diane Keaton line at BB&B.  And yes I had coupons cause it "weren't cheap" [I know that is redneck speak].

See.
The stripe blanket and the pillow.  
The blanket is really soft.  Along with my pillow addiction, is my new found stripe obsession......

And you can also see how my gallery wall is progressing.....

So that is that.  

Also I  just thought you might like to see how cleaver some people are.  Look what Rachel did over at Accessorize and Organize!

So cute.  Beats a card table huh?????  She made it out of pallets.  Go here to see how.  Good Lord, I have got to snag me a few of those to sit in my garage for 5 years, so I can look at them and say "I need to make something".

Here is just a sneak of the bookcases at my installation.
He is a radiologist.  So many medical books.....The things I bought were the books on the top RHS.  The brass candle holder, the small cute vase on the second shelf in the LHS, and the picture frame which of course does NOT have a cute picture in it yet.

Damn...bookcases take a crapload of time.  I was whipping through those suckers like grunge in the 90's through Seattle.  

Done here.....I am going to spend the rest of the day putting together a dining room plan.  Just trying to catch up....

If I don't say it enough, love you guys, thanks for all of your comments and for reading my blog.

Sheriky Freaky.....

Pin It!

I am going to have to hit BBB to see this new line that has you not only excited, but shelling out the cash! I have somethings to measure so those folding yardsticks would sure come in handy. Just saying. Enjoy the rest of this beautiful Atlanta Sunday.

Gloria Fox @ Potentially Beautiful said...

Weekends do go by way too fast. Can't we just work 2 days and be off 5? That would work for me. :-)

Love the giveaway items! The vintage thingys would go great at my new place!

Agree about the weekends, they do fly but then again so do the weeks...such is life! We were not lucky in the zero humidity dept. My hair will attest to that:)

I asked my husband to bring home a pallet and he said why? so we can leave it in the garage for a few months then haul it to the road? Anyway, I would love to win this give away ... especially the salt and match tins.

I love that blanket. I had no idea Diane Keaton had a line now. I just threw out a coupon too! Thanks so much for the giveaway. I have been hunting for some old rulers and I'm loving that fabric!

Holly said...

I hope that no humidity weather comes up here to PA - it's been so humid here. But no complaints, life is good. Your giveaways are the best!! I'm fascinated by the various stylings of a bookcase - you did that radiologist proud. I bet a hug is the best reward for your work - that probably means they're really happy with what you did ;)

Oh Sherry, your header, your post, your world!!! THANK YOU FOR VISITING ME TODAY! I find that my dear friends from Atlanta are just the sweetest gals....you are so kind to leave such kind words about my drawings. I hope to make the time to improve my art and to sell it. My etsy shop will be opening soon, and I thanks friends in blogland for helping bring out my long buried abilities.

Wishing YOU happiness and a wonderful evening, Anita

Melissa said...

I love everything but especially the baskets and I'm going to have to check out that Diane Keaton line

ChristyZ said...

I love your giveaway! That linen fabric would be perfect to upholster a chair in my son's room. I've been looking for something blue - kind of oceany - and that fits the bill! :)

Rene said...

Love you too Sherry! You are sweet for offering another awesome giveaway! Was about to ask about the radiology book, but you explained it.

Joyce said...

That lemonade stand is so adorable. I just would like to make one to tuck in the corner of the backyard. xo

Elizabeth said...

I want to win! I love everything! So cute! I love your new pillow and blanket.

Lou Cinda @ Tattered Hydrangeas said...

I like those giveaway goodies. And your blanket. But I suppose you're not throwing that into the mix.

Melissa said...

Awesome giveaway!! Crossing my fingers! :) I just became your newest follower.

Carolyn said...

If you read Tenia's comments,her husband sounds just like mine.They don't get our need to have pallets laying around the house, just in case...They don't understated the passion that lies behind decor... If she wins, I say she should whack him with the folding ruler ,rub salt in the wounds from the salt-holder, put his favorite shirt in the basket, and light it on fire with matches from the match-holder( all this while wearing the cloth over her face, so she will be all incognito-like.)

Shannon said...

Love your blog and your style! Need to go to BBB this weekend!

classic • casual • home said...

I hope you pick NUMBER 71 OF THE COMMENTS. How did I get into this giveaway so late...still time. the linen stripe has my name on it. And the sale and match containers.

Love your striped blanket...and ya just HAD to have one more pillow didn't ya? addict.

I really need these items, so PLEASE pick me.

Tardevil said...

Love the fabric. I didn't know Diane Keaton had a line at BB&B. Guess I'll have to go and take a look see. Thx for the tip. Your writing style cracks me up. If only I would write like I think. ;o) BTW, the pillow feather story is too funny, esp. if he's a dr.
