centerpiece

hey again,

so much for keeping my blog fresh. sigh … oh well.

have had such a difficult time shaking this illness. i feel semi-okay one day, the next like death. it’s been exactly FOUR weeks since i started this stuff. enough already, i say!

okay, anyhow, i did manage some junking on friday. matt (my son) and i went to the GW bargain barn in cove. lotsa fun and came home with a few treasures. pics below.

also including a couple of other pictures from around the house. i made a fantastico centerpiece using the infamous roadside white plates and some yummy turquoise-esque beads and feathers. i was pleased with its beauty and uniqueness. my son looked at it as if a space alien had just landed on the table. hmmph. that boy needs some culture.

enjoy the pics and pretend i said something clever here at the end. 🙂

love and hugs,
terry lee

my son liked the shape of this box with the attached lid, but NOT the flowers. he's taking it on as an art project ... will paint it red and use it for something, well, something.

hey y’all!

am finally starting to feel like a human bean again. was yucky sick for over 2 weeks … but y’all don’t wanna hear about that.

missed out on a fantastic FAG trip this weekend. they went to fredricksburg for the trade days (sans their head FAG, moi). just wasn’t feeling up to that much shopping. my spirit was willing … flesh was weak.

however, i did make it out to belton for the city-wide garage sale. kinda crowdy, but worth it! SCORE!! a VERY sweet vintage white wicker sofa and rocker, an old screen door, painted pink and backed with an old white lacy tablecloth (adorable!!), a yum-yum-yummy vintage pink chenille bedspread (all from the same vendor … a kind and gentle couple from evant who gave me a steal-of-a-deal on the lot) … and four little vintage aprons, two pink/pink with roses and two turquoise lovelies from some dude with a middle-eastern accent. whatsup with that?! oh well, only in america.

quick “hubby” story before the pics. a couple of weekends ago, ben and i were on our way home from a restaurant. as we looped around a busy intersection, i noticed a box in the street. it was partially torn open and had what appeared to be plates falling out of it. naturally, i thought we’d turn around and check it out. naturally, i was wrong … because ben was driving. and he stops for nothing. not even for alleged roadside treasures.

was a little miffed, but also a little too sick to argue my case. got home, went to bed, forgot about it.

the next morning, my sweet hubby went to the pharmacy to get my medication. when he came home, he was lugging a heavy, torn-apart box and sporting a “look what i got, mommy!” expression on his face. he plopped it down on my dining table (yikes!) and immediately, i knew what it was … and what he’d done.

how SWEET is that?!! good job, benjamin! i love you for that. for endangering your life (!!) in that busy intersection to get those silly plates because it’d make me happy … for all the times you go out of your way to make me happy. you’re the best.

btw, the plates were obviously headed to the hotel/restaurant at that intersection. they were just plain, white, service-industry 5″ plates … 25 of them that weren’t broken. but i can use them for crafts. and if i can’t, i betcha i know who can (hi sue!).

okay, on to da pics! lots of ’em this time. and in order to expedite this process, not all of them will have captions. so i hope you did your homework and read every word of my blog. haha.

love and hugs to all,
terry lee
