FABRICS.....VETERINARIANS.....THRIFTING....DIY




Oh yeah...there is a title for you!!!!

Let's start with pretty first.

Remember that Manuel Canovas fabric that I was sleeping with loving.....well I was just playing around and low and behold.....she could be mighty pretty with some "party friends"....

And then.....holy thrifting.....look what I ran across for $35.00!

Yeah....I know.  Shut up.

I had to buy it right?

Now what?

OK...on to the update of my Patches.  UGA Vet School of Medicine today.  I felt like I was in an episode of "House".  A team of doctors, teachers, residents, and students.



Lord if they can't figure it out then it can not be done.  No definitive diagnosis yet...still could be a rare cancer, or a fungus.  BUT...they are going to read the results of all of the test I already had done like "looking for a loophole in a prenup"!

AND.  Then test some more.

Yeah.  Take that hula hoop.

Easter....12 hours before and my friend decides to have a brunch.  Now I don't know about you but my house would not be clean enough for an "impromptu" party.

She asked me to bring a fruit salad and that threw me into a panic.  I need a little more direction.  I sent her some pictures of flowers at Trader Joe's and said....."I can do flowers".

I meant INSTEAD of fruit salad.

Whoops.

She asked me what kind of fruit I got and I just looked at her and cocked my head.

I guess she didn't understand.

$12.00 for flowers....greenery from her yard.  Seed packets lying around.  Easter=seeds????  It's a stretch.




Mason jars and twine on hand.

Oh yeah....we had a good time snickering over $12.00 worth of flowers and a 1000.00 worth of plates, napkins,  pewter chargers, silverware,antique linen tablecloth......

Oh...... she had the fruit all along.

Now on to DIY.


I saw this at Anthropologie.

Hold on.....wait for it....

Please ignore my sad looking planter.  I'll get to it before fall.
Scouted the fig tree at Home Depot.  One small metal trashcan.
One can of spray paint.

Don't cha think????  For my screened porch project

The last thing is this.


Is it me????  So dang cute.....

Ok...random subjects.  For people with ADD.  That would be "moi".

Tomorrow I am going up to see how Angela's project is coming along.  We are going to try and drill down on the fabrics.  Like THAT can be done.

How many times did I say "flowers" in this post????

Too many.

Scott's this week.

Sha.....all over the place :)

Love the fabric stash and find! Hope you get a diagnosis soon! As for your impromptu brunch, wow, I wouldn't pull it off at my place!

Julia {Pawleys Island Posh} said...

holy smokes I'm in love with that first fabric. Gonna need to get me some! It looks so great with the other fabrics you've paired it with!

Kerry @ Design du Monde said...

This is my kind of post. I honestly can't concentrate on a mile long post about using ottomans for cocktail tables-blah!
Pier 1--super cute. Canovas' friends--most lovely. Plant DIY--yes.Sick doggie--:(

Kelly said...

Sure hope you can find out what's wrong with your sweet doggie. That would keep me up at night!! I've heard good things about UGA with animals though. Hold on to your wallet if you can too. Ha! You are so funny about the brunch thing. Glad it all worked out in the end.

Ugh about the pup - what a roller coaster ride. I saw the same little stool at Pier One - SOOOO cute! I would have bought it if I could have justified one more thing (I am overflowing into the garage as it is, haha). What would we do without spray paint?

Lauren@BaylorSays... said...

I'm stressed about your sweet dog. :-( I'm so sorry for the frustration.

I'm scared if you're embarrassed of your planter in what appears to be your backyard. I've got empty pots with random weeds and two poinsettias on my FRONT PORCH. Yes, I'm serious.

Carol@HouseandHomeDefined.com said...

Bravo! Great post of scattered stuff. Love it. My heart hurts about Patches. Hope all is figured out soon.

Acquired Objects said...

Brunch, my house, tomorrow, great, I''m a Virgo we're good to go! I hope somebody finds out what is wrong with Patches poor dog could be hurting, just isn't right. I like how scattered you are but by the time I get to the bottom of your post I can't remember what your post was about....menopause, it makes you stupid!

I love these random post, so fun to follow along with you, and your great sense of humor. I just have to meet you someday, that is all there is to it!! xo

Cassie @ Primitive & Proper said...

i think i am having a little anxiety attack over that rug. seriously.

An Urban Cottage said...

You're giving some great ideas for the lining of my Mao jacket.

I hope they figure out what's going on with the dog. It's so tough knowing they're not feeling well.

Joyce said...

Great projects and fun colors! Poor Patches- by the look of that sweet face- I hope you get the answers and one we all hope for- good results. xo

PURA VIDA said...

You have just GOT to be kidding me! That find is incredible, I have those very plates, i have that exact can of spray paint for a chaise I found in my garage, and a stool just like that only not with potholder fabric, and I love pier 1. But I don't have a dog but would be ripping a new one for your vet if I lived in your town.

Cathy Wall said...

I am giving Patches a cyber hug, too adorable, hope you get some news soon.
LOVE the Pier 1 stool (made from Saris I think), I saw it at my local store just the other day and wondered where I could use it, did you buy it for the porch?

Holly said...

Scott's! You are just too much fun Sherry - your clients must absolutely love you. And another hug from me to your Patches. I love the fun that you're having with those fabrics too.

Shelley {Crazy Wonderful} said...

Oh I just want to love on your pup! Still praying you get the answers you need and that everything will be ok :) I'm loving everything in the rest of this post! Yes to all of it!

Cindy said...

Sha all over the place, you are all over the place, and i enjoyed every minute of it, because my brain totally works like yours, and i followed it all, like no problem. God, why does your baby have to get some bizarre crazy fungus or cancer that takes a vet school and 8 billion dollars to figure out. What a sweet face...

Lynda @ Happenstance Home said...

OK - that little pier one piece is too cute. Your pup is adorable. I hope you get good answers soon. Its so sad when they arent feeling well cause they are pure sweetness!

Cindy said...

Oh yeah, Awesome find, the rug!

The Vintique Object said...

No, my house would not be clean enough. I have to break out the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser days in advance.

Still thinking of Patches. My heart just melts looking that face...

That Manuel Canovas fabric is the Mack Daddy of equestrian anything. & the rug.... Holy Moly... What-A-Find!

Carla Aston said...

Great fabrics. I love a statement fabric with a bold pattern. Hope you get an answer soon on your sweet doggy. Lovely flowers too!

My Interior Life said...

Uggh, so sorry there's still nothing definitive about your pup. So frustrating. On a positive note, love the fabric, flowers and, of course, the fiddle leaf fig. Might have to hit up Home Depot today. The ones I find there are always squatty.

Whitney @ Drab to Fab Design said...

I loved your writing style today.. Haha it reminds me of me! :) dang, I'd be a mess if I still hadn't heard an answer about my baby. They've got to know something soon! The plants in the trash can...love!

Amanda said...

WOW! that fabric collection literally just gave me chills! Every time I step into a fabric showroom my heart races-its the best high ever!
And Im so glad you are seeking a 2nd opinion on your doggie and hope they have answers soon! The waiting is the worst!

Laurie said...

You rock! Love that rug - where did you score it? Can't wait for Scotts this weekend - have not been in FOREVER! Good luck with that pooch.

Beth said...

that is some Sherrific fabric..hee hee hee!

Rosa @ FlutterFlutter said...

Hah! You make me laugh! :)
I was running around crazy over the Easter weekend, like I tend to do, and brought a strawberry & goat cheese salad to a meal, completely forgetting the goat cheese!! And we all know that goat cheese is really the part that would make that salad!! Oops.

Kirsten Krason said...

I love the fabric combo in the first picture!

Interior Design Musings said...

Man you can write! Loved this post, my friend. Laughed out loud! M.

Carolyn@SweetChaos said...

I'm glad I'm not the only one who would panic over a fruit salad! Love the flowers and the fabrics, and I hope your sweet pooch is okay.

Love that DIY idea, and you're so lucky to have found that tree at Home Depot. I've been checking at mine for months and finally gave in to having an interior landscaping business source one for me.
