I finished the basket that Tessie is holding at the Wednesday Witches' meeting yesterday....That's about all I did.
I made her stand on the opposite end of the basket shop so that you could get a good look on that side.
This morning I went to the post office and when I came out, my car didn't want to go home. I went to Michael's and was very glad that I did. They have bins at the front of the store, filled with odds and ends for a dollar . If you live near a Michael's and need wood flooring, run, don't walk. I found these place mats for a dollar each. They are very nicely finished bamboo slats with unfinished dowels between the boards.
Here's a close up. All you have to do is cut the strings and pull them apart. They come in several colors and would be useful for a lot of things.
After Michael's, I hit Home Goods, that is just a few doors down in the same center. They are running a clearance of 60% off on some items. Christmas items were one of the categories....Tessie benefits, once again. I bought her a bird feeder.
To her, it's not a bird feeder. It is a one person, "I want to be alone." gazebo. The only thing Christmas-y about it is the three wreaths that hang on the sides. They are just hung on eye rings and can easily be removed. I may knock out one section of the railing, but nothing else really needs to be done to it.
You know that I can't leave well enough alone. It may not look the same the next time you see it.
All it really needs is a wicker chair and a small table for a drink and cookies.
She is back to making a list and checking it twice....I wonder if she is related to Santa Claus?
Anyway, she has lots for me to do on the list now.
See you tomorrow.
