Weekend Excitement

This weekend I didn't leave the house for two days! I finally finished painting our bedroom! Yay! I really don't understand how everyone else knocks out these massive projects in a day or two. Wheew... I still haven't found bedside tables or lamps, but the painting is DONE! Here's a sneak peek of the yummy color:

The drapes were originally hanging on those cheap, yucky metal bars that always seem to be in older homes... Now they are too short.

I should probably vacuum up the drill dust, eh?
Luckily I never hemmed them! They are just pinned, since I knew I was going to change out the rods eventually.

On Monday we went to the Gypsy Caravan. They call it an "antique, craft, and flea market", but really it was like a big garage sale. There was some good stuff, but most of the "good stuff" was priced out of my range. Just a taste of what we saw:




It was insanely, crazy busy and I am not a big fan of crowds. Plus, it was about a zillion degrees! My sunscreen crapped out, but only half of it, so I am red and splotchy on the back of my neck and the  left side of my chest... I made a big stink about how I won't go next year, but we all know that's not gonna happen! LOL I'll just have to be better prepared. Extra sunscreen, hat, breezy dress, comfy shoes, etc. My new fab jeans from the Gap were too tight (with the humidity) and I was miserable... Plus my lovely Cynthia Vincent flat gladiators from last year didn't have enough padding apparently and my feet still hurt!

That fair looks kind of cool.

Great color! I can't wait to see it complete! Don't you just love flea markets like that? We use to have a bunch around my area, but they have really fizzed out.
