So, my BBF ( Best Blogging Friend or Best Bella Friend or Both) Jodie invited me and another BBF, Sandy to New Orleans this week to visit. UH...Sandy is going but I'm not. Waaaaaaaa! My daughter is graduating high school in a couple of weeks and there are too many things going on for me to leave. Waaaaaa! Last night my dear hubby found a $200.00 round trip airfare to NOLA but NOOOO I can't leave Sadie. Waaaa! Sadie just informed us that she will be gone for the weekend with a friend to visit her friend's Dad who plays in a band. Waaa! OK, I just have to suck it up. Waa, sniff, sniff, wa. This will be the last whine you hear from me on this subject. In a few weeks I will be whining that my kids are both grown and no one needs me anymore.
All Better. Jodie and Sandy, I hope you have a marvelous time together and please post lots of pictures so I can feel like I was there too.
To comfort myself I am going to take you on a stroll down one of my very favorite streets, which coincidentally had a street sale last week on my birthday. So hubby and I spent the morning yard sale-ing through this lovely neighborhood.The sun was shining, the air was warm and all the trees were in blossom.
The fresh green only spring brings to the Earth.
Absolutely darling houses.
Each one is a fairy tale abode.
Many varied architectural styles.
See why I want to live here when I grow up?
We also visited a rummage sale in Indiana and a multifamily sale full of antiques. We came home with loads of goodies.
Bunches of broken jewelry for art.
Hubby found two old newspapers with events in Cincinnati's history.
Flour sacks... future pillows? curtains? any thoughts?
A musical jewelry box with a dancing ballerina and a tackle box for art supplies, $1.00 for both of them!
Books, and books and books. Sweet white cafe curtains.
Avon calling. A quarter for each of these cuties.
I am going to collage this jewelry box, it is plastic with a retro Asian kind of motif right now. I found a small bowl at GW that matches this creamer. More storage for the art room.
A wonderful mirror for a few bucks! I feel much better now, thanks for letting me have my pity party. Really, good friends who want to spend time with me, a gorgeous daughter getting ready to pursue an art degree, a hubby who likes to go junking, (oh and did I tell you we are taking dance classes as well?) and indulges my every whim. What the H**L do I have to whine about?
I hope you are all as blessed in your lives.
Have a fantastic Friday, P.
