Let's Play While The Girls Are Away!!!

It's a Sale!!!

Marci and Mandy are heading to Dallas this weekend to do some Market shopping. While we are gone we decided to clear out some things to make room for the goodies we are going to find. We thought we would post a few pics to get you thinking about where, in your gorgeous home, you could put a great treasure from the cottage. Our friend Kathye will be watching the store and probably doing a little shopping herself while she is there. The sale will be Friday and Saturday, June 26 and 27 from 10 - 6. Tons of items will be 50 % off and furniture will be 30 % off. Yes, if you must know, the black table with zebra chairs will be 30 % off. So come join in the fun...the AC's will be blowing and cookies will be in abundance for your shopping pleasure. Take a look at these fabulous things!!

If you are just not sure what to get your dad or husband for Father's Day, may I suggest...

Our newest addition to our Poo~Pourri line, Royal Flush. It is the "men's" version of Poo~Pourri, which, I might add, smells really good. It is packaged in a nice stainless bottle that looks really manly!!! Cost is $9.95.

Now, for you ladies...We have added the Pou~Pourri Rhinestone Atomizer gift set. Great for travel!!!

Comes with this cute little velvet bag for those of us who like to be stealth. :-0

I'm Working On Something

I have a project going on....we acquired this chandelier...cannot EVEN remember where it came from...I promptly took it apart, stripped it of it's wires and it has sat in a heap on the table in the cottage garage for a while now.

Lesson one: Always take a before picture of the chandelier.

Troy (my husband) and I began rewiring this beauty last week. We were able, through much grunting and cussing under our breath, to get the wires threaded through the arms of the chandelier. Once this was done Troy looked at me and said, "OK, how does it go back together?" As I sat and looked at him blankly, I could see a little blood drain from his face...You see, I have been asking for quite a while now for help to re-wire this gorgeous thing and he just spent all morning, like I said, cussing those wires through those arms!!!! Now, he assumes I remember how all the pieces fit together???? Thus begins the, no, this way, no, that way, no that looks stupid, no, you left a piece out....and on and on and on. Well, we did get this will be painted, and crystals will be added (80) yes, I said it, 80 crystals go on this baby!!! I cannot wait to see her in all her glory....stay tuned...
