No you haven't stumbled into the wrong place, I did a bit of a face lift to the Lilac Thicket. I updated the room with some appropriately girlish wallpaper and changed the color scheme to a different shade of pink.
I had a rough week at work as I told you about in the last post and barely hung on like a parched wanderer finally finding the desert oasis until my weekend started at 3:30pm yesterday!
Wednesday evening I came home to dinner and a lovely bunch of flowers. Aren't they sweet? I tell you I did pick the right man this time. I wouldn't trade my Caribbean Prince for all the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups in the whole world! Even when he gets his nasty dirty fingerprints all over my laptop! Now ladies, that is saying something!
Last Friday the Professor and I made our round at our favorite Thrift Shop. He gets mad at me when I tell people how much I pay for our fabulous finds. I guess he wants folks to think we buy full price or something. I just get excited about the nice little things we get that make our lives a little more robust on our meager earnings. I think it might inspire people to realize new is not sophisticated, you can have a nice home or wardrobe at a fraction of the bucks.
Each of these pieces of fabric are 2 yards a piece and they were each $1.20, which is 60¢ a yard.
This pair of pillowcases...$1.00!! I think they are lovely!
This doily....$1.00! It will go in our living room which is blue! I need to place it under my lovely vase of flowers!
