I have IBD, so yes, that IS a little potty humor for those of you who recognized it as such.
For the rest of us, I got some stools! My friend Pam (you know...Chair Fairy Pam) saw an ad in the classifieds and immediately investigated for me. That woman can spend other people's money like nobody's business.
So I got 4 stools for $50. They didn't exactly fall off the Amish buggy or anything, but they're in like-new condition and have a pretty cool design. And it was $50 for all four. Did I mention that?
Here they are sitting around my new island. I think the stools peed on the floor.
Even Philly likes them. He was so excited that the fabric was in such good condition that "we" don't even need to re-cover them.
Clearly he doesn't know me very well.
I had a couple visitors recently. Remember when my Dad stopped by in his Model T, Rusty?
Well, Mom and Dad stopped by the other day with one of their other Model Ts. Aren't they awesome?? My parents are the coolest. Literally. It was Mid-July and they're wearing sweatshirts.
In all fairness, we had a freak cool-snap here in the midwest.
And then I had another visitor.
No, not another carrier pigeon with absolutely zero photographic proof.
Look how cute this little guy is!
Clearly he can read Spanish.
He was so tiny. He was only about an inch and a half long.
I found him hanging out on an extra bag of shingles. I'm so glad I didn't accidentally smoosh him.
And my last visitor wasn't so much a visitor as it was really fun mail! My super-awesome bloggy friend Tracy at Zoe Cottage makes the most beautiful cards! I must have been overzealous in mentioning how gorgeous they are because she felt compelled to send me some.
(No, I wasn't trying to ply her with compliments so she'd send me some.
Not as far as you know anyway.)
But aren't they gorgeous??
Sorry...I didn't take them out of their protective plastic covers because I'm a klutz and would have messed them up.
Her attention to detail is amazing!
You can check out her design blog here:
And she has gorgeous handwriting as well and likes to do the pen-pal thing. (You know...the lost art of actually WRITING on something and putting it in the mail instead of typing it and hitting "send"?) So give her a shout if you like to pal around!
Lastly, I've got my cabinets and flooring picked out. I'm pretty darn close on countertops. I'll be staining and clear-coating our interior doors pretty soon. (Like I have a clue what I'm doing there.)
Lots of things have been happening, but nothing pretty or photo-worthy. Except for our brick. It's up. And that post is coming soon...
