Well lets see if I can keep this up....2 post in November and now it's early December so there is still a chance of getting a few more post together:)

So the finger.....I can tell you that the other 4 fingers are mad at having to do all of the work.  It is still very swollen but they said to go see a specialist to get the stitches taken out and if they won't do it...then come back to the ER.

OK...first of all I am not going back to the ER and taking a chance of another 3-4 hour wait.  Nope.  And when she said go see a specialist but if they won't take them out...I am like HUH????

So basically it's like I sold you a couch but you have to figure out how to get it to your house.  Bad business model I think.

Anyway long story short I watched a YOU TUBE video and I feel like I am certified now.  

Last night I roped my friend into helping me...which was shocking since her sister and best friend are both doctors so I feel like she should know better.

Apparently she doesn't and after 15 minutes they were all out.  Except for one that I found this morning which I plucked out myself.

OK...lets move on to the Atlanta Holiday Home Showhouse.

Usually I get to preview it but I had an appointment that I could not change so that didn't happen....

I wrangled Rose into going with me on Sunday [ it was a million people] but it is only open until the 10th so time was running out.

Let me give you the quick scoop.....Architect was Castro Design Studio [who I have worked with before and he is amazing!]

The builder was Pradera Group and my friend Kit Castaldo was responsible for tile selections, kitchen design etc. 

 Above was a space my friend Erika Ward Interiors did using art from Wendell Dobson [another friend!]

More from Erika!

Kit did this space off the kitchen area....

The talented Barbara Westbrook was responsible for the family room which I loved!

How about this trim....

It was hard to get a picture of the kitchen cause there always seemed to be somebody in the way!

This was the bar area.....

And there you have it!  Stitches and a Showhouse in one post....where will I go




OK...look at me blogging again so soon.  There is a reason for that and we will get to it at the end of this post:)

But back to came and went so fast... do you agree?  
Now we speed through 29 days and Christmas will be over also....If I was 6 years old it would drag but being a spry 71 years old everything happens very fast for me!

We all celebrated at my niece's new house and it was a jolly time!  Of course I did not get any pictures but I do have pictures of my neighbors table which she gave me creative liberty to do what I wanted.

I decided to use the colors in her DR instead of  autumn colors:)

I went to Target and found the cutest set of "bottle washers" in her colors!

Then I just used eucalyptus and random flowers in her colors. I got the ribbon at World Market but I can't find it online right now.....

Anyway she loved it and I had fun:)

My outfit for Thanksgiving kind of matched it!

So now turn away if you are squeamish...I know I am....

Sunday night I was headed over to my neighbors house with some soup I made and were were going to eat, drink and be merry.....

I do not know how this happened but the next thing I know my fingers were slammed in the door and I was down on the front porch!

Cast of characters were: Cami....a leash....a key to lock the door..... a tupperware filled with soup and some parsley.  

I did manage to put the soup on the porch railing for my neighbor, wrapped my hand in a towel [bleeding like crazy]  and then I headed to an Urgent care which after 2 hours they said I need to go to the ER.


So I headed to Piedmont Hospital and just knew I would be there forever. 

And I was.

After XRAY's it was not broken but I needed stitches.

6.... to be exact.

I will tell you that the shot of lidocaine into the injury just about did me in.  But she said I was brave that most people would be crying...and I thought to myself....yeah...mostly kids. 

Then a tetanus shot and I was on my way after 4 hours.....this is where you need to turn away....

It happened at 5:30 and I was home at 11:30.  I will tell you that it was a lesson in patience all of that waiting around....I kept saying I was gonna leave but then my neighbor reminded me that I would just have to go back in the morning.

And there you have it.....just another exciting holiday!
