Woke up Saturday morning to rain! That's a big deal in my world. I love rain! So the only way to enjoy the cool weather was to get out there and do some, ummm, yard work? ummm, no... yard saling! The rain had stopped but it was overcast and down-right chilly... ok, for us desert dwellers. Randy is up north at a Men's Retreat this weekend and they actually got snow! He sleeps in the van when he goes to things like that or else he's up all night with the snoring. He must have been really chilly.
Anyway, here's my favorite find... a fancy vintage hat for Mrs. McGillicutty! (check out former post) Won't these aqua hats look lovely in her new room... that we're painting aqua... just like Alicia's room. The hat box and two hats for just a dollar! I know, I was shaking as I paid the gal!
AND it was a great day to start some of my painting projects. True confession... I have never painted a wall. You heard me right, I have never rolled paint on a wall. But I LOVE to paint furniture! I love the prep, the sanding, the priming, more sanding, the painting, more sanding and more painting. I really do love the whole process! The transformation from this ugly old, funky piece to whatever I want it to be is so gratifying! And I have my own little paint store, with all the "oops" cans that I have acquired over the years for a buck or two. You do know that Home Depot has a shelf full of paints that have been returned and for only a fraction of the cost! So I kinda determine the color by what I have on hand. I'm easy that way.
YA BABY! SUNS WIN!!! SUNS beat the Lakers to start off the playoffs! And I got my orange on!
