Fat Cheeks and Church

I want to thank the academy...... oops wrong show. I think the pain medication is getting to me. (grin) Seriously though, I want to thank all you sweet bloggers that held my hand in spirit, said a prayer with hugs and sent emails with well wishes for my dental surgery I had this past Thursday. Things went fine and the surgeon said I was a model patient. (Happy pills will do that to you.) Anyway, my driver drove me home and I fell asleep at 8 pm and didn't wake up until 9 am the next morning. Looked okay on Friday but this morning I was a wreck. They say the third day after surgery is the worst. I believe it! I looked and felt like someone had hit me upside the head with a two x four. Look at that fat cheek and it aches so.



I hope by now your hysterical laughter has died down 'cause I have something to show you. On previous post, after I talk about my "treasure hunts", lots of you ask to see what I found, so this week I thought I would show you my latest fun find. After a hot shower and a cold coke (acting as a compress) pressed to my cheek, off Bobby G. and I went this morning . :) I found this piece last weekend but my mind said "no Lynn, you don't need that." But when Bobby G. happened to notice too as he was meadering around the shop and pointed it out to me, how in the world could I not get it? But I didn't!! But it was on my mind all week. You see I have this one skinny wall between the foyer and the family room. I did have two staggered iron vase holders on it and loved them.....but someone (who has yet to 'fess up) broke one rounding the corner too quickly, so the wall has been empty for quite some time now. Well, today we traveled back to that store to buy it. The store is an hour and an half away but I couldn't call them to make sure the piece was still there because I couldn't remember the name of the place. But luckily it was still there......yeah! He gave us a price break on it and we bought it. What do you think? I love it because it has that cathedral or church feel to it. It's 6 feet tall and 20" wide. And guess what? The shop owner had a pile of rusty crusty old cast iron door and window grates that perhaps soon I will go back and buy some for you. There was one that had flowers on it that would be perfect over a fireplace or absolutely charming in a small garden. But it was heavy. That's the only problem with me buying that type of thing to sell in the boutique is that they are very heavy and bulky to ship. But my mind keeps thinking about them. But if I am going to do it I need to do it soon while it's still cold because where the shop owner had these pieces stored you wouldn't catch me messing around there in hot weather. Too many creepy crawly things could be in there. :)

Yessssssss, I love it, honey! I would have gone back to get it also. I ALWAYS, ALWAYS say that you'll never regret buying something but you'll ALWAYS regret NOT buying it. I live by that credo, chickee.
Smooches to Bobby G for being so understanding,
Connie

Christine said...

Lynn, I am so happy that your surgery is behind you. You don't look so swollen, just a tiny bit.
You are like me, I could be at death's door but when I want (or need) to go hunting, I go no matter how rotten I feel. You go girl! And I love that iron piece you bought. Perfect!

Sandi@ My Yellow Door said...

Hope you're feeling better. I totally love that white metal piece. Have a nice weekend.

Blessings,
Sandi

Margie said...

Hi Lynn, so glad you are over the surgery. Hope your recovery goes smoothly. What a great find, it looks so good, you have an eye for quality, happy for you that it was still there and you got it for less. hugs Margie.

Beverly said...

Lynn, I hope you will be feeling much better soon, and that all the problems are resolved. I think you're cute with a fat cheek or without. ;-)

That piece is gorgeous. You'll have to show us a picture when you have it in place.

Becky said...

Hi Lynn,
I hope today finds you feeling better. I didn't think that you looked bad at all.
Very nice find. I love rusty iron pieces. I use to sell them in my shop. I remember setting up one time at a flea market and someone said...you sell rusty pieces? They totally did not get it at all. lol
Hugs
Becky

Mildred said...

Hope you continue to feel better from the dental surgery. I love the treasure you found.

GMG said...

Hi Lynn! So, that was the reason why you were absent; forget the dentist, it improves immediately... ;)) Haagen Dazs, that's what is needed... ;)
Meanwhile Blogtrotter has entered Rajasthan, after an incredible road trip!! Enjoy and have a great week!
All the best!

VINTAGE HOME lifestyle said...

WOW...that piece is fabulous. I would run not walk back to get the grates. HURRY!!! You can always offer them as pick-up only?
By the way "Thank you so much for the nice comment" you should get some chickens for your Farmette...they are wonderful pets.
HUGS...

Meadowsweet Days said...

Hi Lynn.... Hope you're feeling better. Isn't it a small world? My Dad has been living down on Smith Mountain Lake for years, he actually has a small airport there. We would go every summer when the kids were younger. We always had a ball.

I love the arched trellis.Very beautiful.I love thing like this.Hugs and get well kisses Marie Antionette

raccoonlover1963 said...

Hi Lynn. Sorry, I didn't know you were having surgery. When I had mine several years ago, the dentist told me that the novacaine(sp?) would hold out long enough for me to get to the pharmacy to get my pain med script filled. What a liar! The second I walked out his door it wore off, literally! I was driving myself to boot.
I love the snow pic in the earlier post!
Take care, get to feeling better and try to have a good week.
Lisa

mrsjones6 said...

Oh Lynn! I had no idea that you had dental surgery this week. I have been so behind on my visits and feel so bad. Hopefully you are feeling so much better and healing right up!
The vintage gate is a fabulous find! I LOVE it and know you are enjoying it greatly.
Take care of yourself and have a lovely Monday.
Hugs,
Jennifer

Ballerina Girl said...

I love old things. I have the iron bed and the
china cabinet from my hubby's grandmother.
There is a place in Athens that would be a heaven for you. It's full of stores selling old things. If you ever come to Athens, visit Monastiraki for beautiful old things and a great souvlaki.
The tooth pain is the worst. Be patient and it will go away soon.

Nana Net said...

Nothing like "Happy Pills" to make the world go round! LOL I oh so love the new item. Can not wait to see what you do to it. As for the newsletter, can not wait to start recieving it. Now must go and sign up for it. Take care and have fun shopping for those hidden treasures!

countrycharisma said...

Donna@designson47thstreet said...

You have another vote of sympathy from me. It seems mouth pain is right up there with the worse of pains. So sorry!

I LOVE that gate/door. It wouldn't work well in my home, but I could sure see it in a garden or up against the house.

I'll have to sign up for your newsletter!

BellaColle' said...

Hope you are better today!

dana said...

Oh Lynn! I am so sorry you had teeth ouchies to deal with! I hope you are doing really great by now!!

I kept looking for your name on Beverly's PSat roster--then realized you weren't there, BUT you so sweetly left me a sweet comment!! My weekend with my little Gr Girl was wonderful and oh so tiring! She's just 2 1/2, but she keeps me on a dead run!! My hubby and I took her to an OZ exhibit at Crown Center which is a shopping area connected to our Hallmark Cards main office. Anyway, she loved the Lion and the Munchkin houses and the slides in the OZ castle! She also loved the grilled cheese and fr. fries we bought for her afterwards! She's a little spitfire!
I LOVE the piece you and Bobby G returned to buy! It's wonderful!
Hope this week is bringing you dental comfort and renewed chewing abilities!! :) L, Dana

I hope the pain is subsiding and the swelling has gone down.

Linda said...

Hi Lynn, I'm glad you are on the road to recovery and feeling 100% soon. I love your new piece, and glad they still had it when you went back to the shop. I haven't found a heart rock in ages, but when you do your heart will sing. Happy Valentine's Day to you...hugs, Linda
