I seem to have a thing for footstools, all shapes and sizes. This one caught my eye because it was cheap and I like the hidey hole. More storage is never a bad thing around here.
I will have to do just a little repair on the finish and put a new pad and upholstery on the top and it will be as good as new.
On the way back, I stopped at Dollar tree. My car is trained to automatically turn into that shopping center whenever we go by there.
Anyway, it made Tessie forgive me for the footstool.....I found her some new friends.
These garlands of skeletons(4 to a package) were a pretty good find. A couple of years ago I found some at Walmart and paid more than a dollar.
As soon as Tessie saw them she glared at me and asked,"Sooo....Do they dance?"
I answered, "How should I know? You're the one that has a thing about dancing skeletons, not me."
She lined them up an was working on a Rockettes routine....So far they aren't too coordinated. I don't see a chorus line in their future. They are trying.....
I also got three of the little glue bottles that I like to stick into work boxes for a dollar. Even if the glue isn't great, the bottles are refillable.
I got Tessie to pose with the finished baskets from yesterday and the checkerboard one that I am currently working on. How? Soon there will be two new baskets on the shelves in her retro room box.
The one that she is holding has real quail feathers on it and some tiny pieces of jade and agate.
The one by her feet is the rainbow one that I already had finished. I like that one because it has such happy colors.
Now that I have shown you all of the work that I didn't do this morning, I guess that I should go and actually do something constructive for the rest of the day....First I am going to bake a life sized chocolate cake. Hey! That's constructive.
See you tomorrow.
