THANK YOU for all of your thoughts and prayers for my "wee" pup Mason. When we got home and took him outside he did some business he hadn't done in a few days (ahem) and when we called the vet he said to observe him for a few days and to give him some maple syrup for digestion. If he is still acting sick in two days we are to call them back. Mason is a nervous guy, he paces and hardly sleeps when he's upset. (Mr. Softee and the garbage men being his two biggest worries.) From the beginning the vet said that Collies were prone to nervous stomachs and stress colitis. Yeesh. So anyway, thank you for all of your kind comments, he's truly a wonderful dog. Hopefully his tummy trouble is over.
Now onto my chaotic life. I'm feeling a bit (very) disorganized these days. So I won't be posting daily for awhile. One reason is that I feel like I haven't had time to do more than breeze by my favorite blogs and I really want to get caught up on all the goings on out there. Another is that I still have those piles of STUFF in my dining room. It looks like a rummage sale and even Luis, who hardly ever complains about clutter, asked me when it was getting out away. Hmphff.
sorry about that glare . . . I didn't notice it on the tiny camera screen. :(
tray - $2 - probably not vintage but still has a nice "beaten" look to it. Plus it's French and don't we love all things French?
tea cups - 49 cents each - these are tiny, demitasse I believe is the right word, and I thought they would make super cute little pin cushions. Perhaps with a bit of velvet? I'll be off to the fabric store this weekend! (you know, when I'm done cleaning . . .)
Pyrex bowl - $1 - I'm a sucker for Pyrex but you knew that didn't you?
ladle - $2 - it's in perfect shape, don't you think?
glass mortar & pestle - $2 - I always want these, I already have 2, but I don't use them. Must be a collection then!
I won't go into detail here. All treasures from the last few weeks. They are sitting on my dessert display stand that is still out from Easter. I got the stand at a store in Cold Spring that was closing and selling everything. It was a rusted and an odd green color so I gave it a coat of paint and I've gotten tons of use out of it. I also bought a bench from that store that I am planning to repaint and recover. I hope to share that soon.
Well wish me a lot of organizing and crafting this weekend. I'll have to sandwich it in between playing tennis and baseball on our new Wii. :)
I'll be seeing you . . .
