Speaking of shopping, I mailed some 4th of July shirts to grand daughters last week. Pop bottles make fun mailing tubes...even if it is hard to stuff things in that little hole. (Kidding, of course.....just cut a door in the side and then tape it shut and add the shipping label over the window!)
On the way to the post office I often pass this street sign and smile. This time I stopped and took a picture. I wonder if the guy noticed the mistake when he put up the sign?
On the subject of signs, I see a lot of these in my neighborhood this time of year! I estimate that there are around a dozen such tents within three miles of my house.
On the hottest weekend so far this summer, I helped out some friends in their booth at a Vintage Sale. The sale took place in an un-air-conditioned horse arena with a dirt floor. It got pretty sticky, let's just say! But look at all of this gorgeous painted furniture they had for sale! It was a fun weekend!!
I came home inspired to get out my paint brushes and tackle some projects. First up was this old bureau that belonged to my parents. I've wanted to paint it for years and finally put actions to my wishing....
Paris Gray paint by Annie Sloan, some elbow grease and patience produced lovely results, I think. I'm so happy with the result that I'm planning more projects!
