Rednesday means Wednesday!

Red kitchens have always been special to me because my Grandma's kitchen was red and yellow. Enjoy! Soon, when things calm down from the new job and my bruised and broken body, I'll have new and fresh pix!

OOOPS I did it again!

...had a fall, that is! Oh yes, I was wearing my crocs (they are now going into the trash - because I just slipped in my kitche by the dog's water bowl a couple of weeks ago, and these shoes are treacherous on water!), and was walking through the store to get milk Friday night. Before I knew it, I was on the floor. I hit really hard, and looking around I see a lake of water around me. Three young guys were trying to help, but I was in horrible pain. The kid that was mopping just stood there for a while. I noticed then, that there was no sign up stating look out for wet floors. Soooo...I'm laying there in extreme pain and the kid says, "why don't you sit on these milk crates?' I roll over and try to get up, and my leg wouldn't work, and the pain was worse. The three young guys helped me into a chair, and the pain was even worse. I asked them to call an ambulance, by then I was sure I had a broken hip, and they were there  quickly. Feeling stupid, I am rolled through the store and into the ambulance. According to the xrays, nothing is fractured or broken. The pain is still pretty intense, and I was given some pain pills that #1 I don't like to take and #2 They don't do much anyway. All after having the best first week at work! All I could think about was what happens if I broke something, having to take off work this soon, etc. So, that's my weekend. Hope yours was better! Hope all of you on the East coast got through Irene, which makes my little misfortune look very insignificant!

New cool find!

found this at a local thrift! It's even cooler in the right light! Obviously homemade, but awesome bar!

the sun is on the shiny vinyl material, but -but it's kinda padded. It has diamond shaped designs, all vinyl!

T his is the inside. A little clean up needed, but a lot of storage space! I'll show the pix in the living room tomorrow!~ My camera's bad enough in the daylight!~ But, it looks amazing! All for $23.00!

Cooler Summer day


The dog days of Summer have been upon us, and Ziggy thinks it was way past time for a cool change! So this morning, I woke up to some clouds, a little sprinkle and lower temps! Yeah! I even felt like cleaning before midnight. Changed things around to make it less "heavy" feeling. I put my saucer chair in the living room, and my new pink and black formica end table! Chenille bedspreads, formica, open windows and a nice tune on the radio! These things all say Summer to me!

Well, I even opened up some windows!

Come on Mom, let's take a nice break!

Pack your bags to visit the seventies, and Cute giveaway at Chandlerguera

I must say, I feel a little like an old fogey. Mom always looks at my fifties stuff and says, "Why do you want this old junk?" I mean, she got over it when she bought her Mediterranean furniture! So, the 70's stuff is kind of like that to me! But, it grows on me..and even looks cool when mixed with mid century. I have been surprised that such an interest has been given to these items on my Etsy.

So, what do you all think about the seventies? Or would you rather be at the Disco?
