Today the title again says it all. Giant dustbin. You can hardly see the house across the street (and mind you, we have 1/2 acre lots in our neighborhood, well, roughly that size. So it’s not as if we are right close on other homes). It’s brutal! Normally we attend church Saturday nights, but with the dust, cold and wind, I’m doing good to be standing, much less going anywhere else today. My arthritis is kicked up fairly bad this evening. I did still get dressed, just because one has to cook dinner, might as well be attractive doing so!
I started today in this, as we did errands and rummage sale hopping:
Pants: Banana Republic
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Bag: Kate Spade
I know, there was a smudge on my camera. Whoops!
I scored some new artwork for the house as well as an adorable vintage sewing table ($10!!) that I am going to refinish and paint the metal accents in pink sparkle. Why not?! The best score today however was the pile of toiletries at a warehouse place for a local shelter to use for their shower program. I’m hoping the warehouse/surplus buyers find more in the future, as I explained what it was for (and they gave me 50% off already dirt cheap prices) and left my number.
And what I am wearing to cook this evening (minus the bag):
Dress: Kate Spade
Shoes: Banana Republic (I painted these and added the pink bows)
Handbag: Kate Spade Moonlight Soirée
And how I plan on cooking:
Yes, little white socks over my nylons. And that readers is some insight into my daily madness. *grins*
Oh, and a cardigan (kohls) of course:
Hey, it’s chilly in this dustbin! I like to keep the heat just a smidge under 70 degrees, or it makes everyone congested. I adore central air conditioning, but heat? Ugh.
Tomorrow I plan to prepare my little seeing table and sell some old furniture. Out with our old, and in with someone else’s old!
Until next time,
