I meant to post this yesterday but...well....I don't know. Time just vanished from my day. Still looking for it:)
Scott's was off the charts this month...do I say that every month? It is always particularly good when I make a vow not to buy anything....because then stuff just jumps in my face.
But I was strong....like warrior.
I am sure after you see the pictures you will think I deserve a medal or something.
Right off the bat I spied this lamp. I felt myself getting weak.....I do love me some natural wood elements in a room.
Then I saw these....150.00 for the pair....I had to run like my hair was on fire.
Let us go straight to the pillows. Love the Jim Thompson fabric on the first 2.....
I think this pillow was there last month....who does not like blue and white? Don't tell me if you are that one person. I will think you are lying.
Yikes...lucite and bamboo....perfect marriage.
Imperial Trellis....still a classic.
I think this is a Romo fabric. My colors...
Both sold...she said she could have sold these 10 times! Duh...
OK...had a moment here. Flush mount. Would have been perfect in my foyer. 195.00. I walked. Quickly. Got a chocolate chip cookie instead.
I don't know...just liked them...on a mantle or in a kids room.
Me likey. Makes such an impact on a wall.
Numbers. I'm still loving.
Just a vignette....for ideas.
Schumacher fabric...sold. Bleached people...remember last month. Well I saw more of this look again.
Seriously...you can find everything at Scott's.
I know you can find these all over the internet but I loved the patina here.
You need hardware? South building in the back.
This couple was so cute. From Augusta and first time doing Scott's. She has a retail store there and is going more towards re-purposing furniture. They had some really cute stuff so if you go stop buy and say "hi"....
Ha....don't they have a look on their face like "is everybody gonna take our picture?"
These pillows are what drew me in...like that is something new:)
Good job on the chair right?
Here is their info!
Oh yes...painted with some WOW fabric.
If I had a screened in porch....I would die over this....
205 356 6656
He finds the wood and his Mom makes the tables!
OK...now your talking. Green....velvet...in great shape. Walk fast.
I need a bathroom to renovate....at the beach preferably. I was loving this.....450.00. I am sure the color had a lot to do with it!
This was like $25 or $30 dollars. Paint er up people.
There is more.....Oh you know it.
Y'all know I have 2 dogs and one is crazy. By the way...no news on my Patches. Univ of Georgia could not diagnose anything wrong, although they did agree it was something. Well...what do you know....3500.00.....and nothing. Really? AYKM?
They want to do the test all over again. Yes you read that correct.
Funny thing is that every one of her symptoms are gone. So now I am left scratching my head on what to do.
Anyway, back to the crazy one. As I am a good Mom...I walk them every afternoon. Around the block until I get to the trail [which I then let them off-leash and hook back up at the end...to finish and walk the rest of the way home.
The trail starts at a cul-de-sac and at the house near the end [you will see in a minute] there are always tons of kids playing. The Mom's are usually sitting around drinking wine in a plastic cup....like I can't figure that out.....not judging people.
This day I notice that they have a card table set up with food and snacks....maybe it was a Friday or something. Celebrating the fact of making it through another week without strangling one of them.
I do the usual smile and wave....the kids come over and repeat what they say every afternoon...."can I pet your dogs?". To which I reply [like I always do] "of course". Then we spend 5 minutes discussing which one is Patches...which one is Zipper and so on. Groundhog day.
Now I continue on and I walk a little way into the trail before I un-leash. The minute I do Zipper takes off like he was spring loaded and runs as fast as he can back to the house....meanwhile I am screaming and flapping my arms like I just stepped in a pile of fire ants.
Just to give you an idea [not the actual day] this is where he is headed. I can hear all the kids and Mom's screaming and he has grabbed a piece of pizza off the card table and starts running back like he is in the dog Olympics or something. I am standing there with my mouth hanging open catching fly's and thinking "really.....are you kidding me?"
Of course he is done with the pizza by the time he gets back to me. I leash him up and start the walk of shame to apologize for my ill behaved dog. How many times can I say I am sorry......about 20 apparently.
They were nice about it but I can imagine what they were saying behind my back...."look how big her butt is"......"she can't even control a dog"....."did you see how insane she looked jumping around"...."what's up with her hair anyway".
Oh well...just a typical day.
It's Saturday people...work it.
