Super Wealthy

Going Home
      Today I went to Seville to check out Funky Junk Boutique. The ladies were as nice in person as they are on Facebook. They had some great stuff, and some fantastic ideas. I think I will be seeing a lot more of them. Today I picked up some brushes and a sample pot of a new (to me) Annie Sloan chalk paint color. Today I didn't take any pictures in their store. I just wanted to take it all in and enjoy it. Next time I will ask about it and see if it is okay to do. I stopped in a couple other neat places while I was downtown in Seville. It was good times.

       After my trip to the  thriving metropolis tiny downtown area I went on over to see my grandparents. How lucky am I? My grandmother was outside when I pulled into the drive. I greeted her with a hug and kiss and told her I had just been to antique stores and confirmed that her house is, indeed, a gold mine. She  fed me ham and bean soup with potatoes. The only thing that could make ham and bean soup better is potatoes. That woman is genius!

     My mom was there, too. We went through the barn, looked at oddities in the hog house, and headed out back to one of the other buildings on the property. My grandparents recently got new windows upstairs and I asked them to save the old ones. I loaded up the van today and brought them home where I will use them in a decorating project soon.

     I'm going back over in the morning. Let's see what we can get into, shall we?

  1. That sounds like a great time. My family is so scattered around the country we rarely get to spend real QT, enjoy! --Ericka
