Yesterday was a mixed bag of flea market goodness and temperatures in the hot-as-Hades range. Note to self: wear a hat next time.
I’m pretty sure I made that note to self last time I went, so the note system isn’t working too well for me. Perhaps I should get a tattoo.
I did manage, through my heat induced stupor, to find some great bargains. The main thing I was looking for was something to use as a laundry hamper for my new and improved laundry room. In my mind I needed two hampers so I could separate my laundry. In your house you may separate by colors or temperatures. Here at the Point we separate into three categories….”disgusting”, “completely disgusting” and “somebody peed on this”. I thought if I could put all of the laundry into something cute it would make the process of reaching in and touching the dirty clothes more enjoyable.
I found the perfect, PERFECT thing. You won’t believe it. It was as if the heat waves parted and we saw each other across a crowded walkway. I rushed over to measure this beauty, made the deal and BAM. It was mine.
I know, right? What could be more perfect for a large family?
Once I had achieved my mission I went about looking for things for Shop 24. Oh the ideas….fabulous vendors and incredible cleverness. I loved the setup at French Vanilla.
If I hadn’t been having a heat stroke I would have been motivated to go home and create. Instead I was motivated to get into the car with the A/C blowing full blast up my skirt and find the nearest Sonic. Ice. I needed ice.
We all fell completely in love with House Wren. Everything in there was to.die.for.
The metal containers with lights were everywhere. If you want to buy one, you can go to House Wren. They have a shop in Wimberly, Texas.
I have had this idea since I went to Round Top in April. I just need to find some wire baskets. Help me Funky Junk Donna. You’re my only hope.
But this…THIS…was my favorite. British Route Sign Designs.
The quality and designs were better than anything I could ever do myself. But the prices were so far out of my range that I didn’t even dare touch anything. I have, however, now become obsessed with having a chair like that.
After we finish school today I will be heading into my sewing room to tear apart the rest of the junk I bought and create new junk. I will have a Diet Dr. Pepper and a large cup of ice nearby. I’m done sweating for the week.
