In a nutshell this week would not classify as a very "good" one. Monday we lost Chance’s precious grandmother. "Granny Powell" treated me like I was one of her own… always hugged me and told me over and over again "I’m so glad to see you, I love you". We rest in the peace of knowing that she is no longer suffering and we are grateful for our time here on earth with her. Chance drove home to be with his family on Monday evening, and on the way home he hit a deer head on. So… his truck is now in the shop. We went home for the funeral Wednesday and Thursday, then Friday morning I awoke early to head to Tallahassee to check on a project there, and just as I was passing a big semi truck a stinkin’ state trooper got me. He came across the interstate for me and had no mercy. I got a $187.50 ticket and will have to squeeze a 4 hour internet driving course into my schedule.
Here’s to hoping next week will be better than last! If you are waiting on a phone call or email from me… bear with me. Things are crazy around here. This blog is my therapy.
A few things that cheer me up:
Did you know Anna Griffin does fabric too? $9/yard is insanely reasonable.
And another fun one: Marimekko- Erja Hirvi’s Keisarinna
Love these Kevatjuhla Marimekko (Cow Plates)
Fiesta-ware-ish 4 for $15 from Urban Outfitters… great for cereal or on a day like today – chili!
I may have mentioned these before, they are my all-time favorite cupcakes. Williams-Sonoma Sprinkles Cupcake Mix… in Red Velvet. If you live near one of their (Sprinkles) locations, I’m jealous. Check out their site.
The Copacabanna Chandelier (those are coconut beads) (Arteriors) $1898 available thru yours truly.
