A Redbook Party!

Pin It
Weight Watcher's week one is now over!  I followed the plan to the best of my ability, it was hard but I pulled through it!  I was pretty happy to find that I'd lost 4.4 pounds on my first weigh in.  I have to admit,  I kinda wished it had been more but I'll own it! Yeah ME!

The best thing is that I feel pretty darn good!  Maybe it's all that fruit but I'm sure loving the increased energy!   Finally made myself get down and add a few (hundred) more staples to my bench.  I finally found some trim I like for it and I think maybe I'm going to tweak the paint just a bit on it.

 That's Stasha the wonder dog.  She's my 12 yr old American Eskimo AKA Spitz.  She's the best craftin' buddy there ever was BuT she just happens to dislike hate the PoP of the staple gun...and let's me know about it...with each and every PoP!

I have a client who wants two nightstands for a bedroom so I managed to sneak out to 'shop'.  These babies are coming home with me!  They may not be what the client needs but they are certainly what I like!  The color...unfortunately...has got to go!  Solid wood and really nice detail.  I want to start these like now!

This fabulous popcorn truck was outside of the re purpose shop today... so FaB!  Last week she had the Calliope with the pipe organ that pulls this.  Reminds me of an old fashioned carnivale. I want this by the way...I don't know what I'd do with it, but...

Got started on that $25 tile top table I got at a yard sale a few weeks ago!  Hubs actually came in just in time to takeover for me...
These tiles are so bad... but I actually felt bad ripping and breaking those tiles off when I read the back of them.  They were apparently terra cotta tiles made in Italy with the layer of ceramic on top.  They were NoT made in China (no offense China) where just about everything else is made.  I just love Italy (and cutie Italian gents- don't tell hubster) so that just made me feel a bit bad to demolish them.  This baby will be done in steps,  I'll show you in a detailed post at end or perhaps in increments.  So excited to start this one...I have plans that will shut the Debbie Downers DOWN!

It's generally been a 'good' day!  A few minutes ago I found out that I have been chosen to host a House Party...sponsored by Redbook Magazine!  The party pack will arrive here in a few weeks.  I'll share more detail in a future post with you.  I can't wait!  Good food, Great friends, yummy drinks and FreeBies...what more could a girl ask for?

I signed up here at house party a while back and this was one of the parties that interested me.
