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. :)
