Ok, I'm feeling a bit better than I was, and went to work a little today. Got out of bed early and cleaned one of my smaller jobs. Then crashed big-time, but it's an improvement over the rest of the week when I could barely dress myself.
I even managed to go to the hardware store to get the new plug that my ancient toaster had been wanting for far too (dangerously) long.
-Fixed it myself even:
These happened to fall into my basket as well:
My tenant/best friend and I spent a few lovely moments sitting in the car after work daydreaming about where they should go. I have also bought a Wisteria plant to consume a rotten fence that runs the length of the driveway. I am really excited about the idea of that. I hope it works. this variety is supposed to be hardy to zone 3, even - so we should be ok.
Totally unrelated, I had a nice find at my in-laws' house over Easter when I came across this key rack. I had been wanting one to solve my necklace issues, and it wasn't being used for anything, so that was a happy coincidence for me:
Last of all I have been slowly working on a little project for Rayona. I bought this amazing little dres with which I am completely in love on eBay for $6.00. It was from an esate sale and dates to the 1930's. I have been looking for a simple vintage pattern to use for summer dresses for her for a long time, but haven't come up with exactly "the one". Then I found this and it really spoke to me. I have been studying its construction, and it's so simple that I think I can work out the pattern for myself in a tiny size for now, and then others later. We'll see. I want to make one out of this pretty calico fabric remnant I bought at JoAnn when we were in NJ last time. I hope to have it finished for her birthday party. Today I measured her (little by little as she would allow). Next I have to draw and cut the pattern on ironed grocery bag paper which is what I like to use (and all that I have right now). Wish me luck -A seamstress I am not, but I'm getting much better with my machine.
-Anyone know anything about controlling the spacing of text/photos in blogger? This looks SO crappy...
