So anyways, yes I am showing you my latest..but before that, let's chat.
I have had the most wonderful day.
It was spend with hubby.
Well, the first few hours where spent with just me and my laptop, and the final episode of LOST.
The reason..I volunteered to work the day after the final episode, 12 hours, and turned the t.v. off after half an hour of it. But then I could not sleep and turned it back on a half and hour later, and then off again, and then on again..when hubby just kept snoring and keeping me awake, and then off again...Needless to say, I did not get any sleep that night, as the dogs then wanted to go out at four in the morning..and yes, hubby continued to snore, and yes, I kept thinking that I needed to fall asleep because five in the morning was coming so soon...so alas, I finally watched the ending online this morning. I thought it was very beautiful and thought provoking.
I watched it before any one awoke, other than me and the dogs!
Hubby slept in. When he awoke we made impromtu plans for the day. Lunch at a place on the lake, called "I Go Inn", and then some shopping at a few local antique shops along the way.
We had lunch out on the deck, overlooking the lake. A reggae band was setting up to play in the corner, cheerful music was piped over the speakers.
After lunch we stopped and did a little shopping. Hubby, who usually detests antique store shopping, made the most purchases. He found some very interesting bar decor.
One of the pieces he bought was really cool. It looked quite ornate and complicated, but was actually a picture and frame made of styrofoam. The frame looked gorgeous. It was an old advertisement for a beer called Koeling. The owner of the shop told us that it was made of styrofoam so that if it fell off the wall it would not break the glass bottles of liquor.
I found a lot that I wanted, but sort of held back. My main search was for shabby, vintage looking frames. I have an art show coming up, and love the look of old and used frames, as opposed to new and shiny. I did not find any, I did however find some sweet cameo pieces to create new jewelery with! More to come on those!
Ok..so about my newly pictured neclace..it is the latest in Distressing Delilah's Shop! It is totally created from vintage pieces of jewelry, absolutely upcycled! and can be found here....click.
I hope you all are having as enjoyable weekend as I!!! God bless, and thank you to all those who have given their time and more for our country and safety.
