Please forgive me...

For I have been missing in action.  But trust me, I did think about you, a lot.  I had a few posts in mind but just not the time.  I hope we can put this past us and move on. 

This past week was a whirlwind, between waking up on Monday morning and having 2 baby fat rolls on my eyelid.  {I am serious folks, I drove my one eyed bad self to Urgent Care and was sent off to work with a eye cream and instructions to put a warm washcloth on it 3x daily} I was also given a tetanus shot {did you know you are supposed to get one every 10 years?} to which my left arm was red, very tender and very swollen and then ending my Tuesday evening with a dental appt. to which my darling dentist numbed me to the point my one good eye was numb and I had to wait a bit before I could drive home.  I started the week wearing my sunglasses indoors at work and gaining the new nickname, Hollywood to ending the week with a once in a lifetime opportunity.  

On Saturday the 9th I was asked if I was interested in dressing up some buffet tables and adding some vintage and new elements into a local hotels decor in their dining rooms.  I immediately jumped at the chance and after scouring local shops, picking through my garage full of finds, browsing for inspiration pieces and potting plants in the dark on Friday night.  Here are the photos from my Saturday adventure.  I do have to admit it was a little hard to part with some of my finds but I know that I will find them again down the road.  

I would like to say a HUGE thank you to Lu & Clem for your enthusiasm and working your chainsaw magic.  It was a huge hit!!  Thank you. 

I planted sedums and different types of ferns in vintage silver pieces.  

I stamped a knife and fork on a dictionary page with the word 'food' on it.  There is one of the word birds that I made for this.  I just love those guys. 

This was my favorite planter, it reads:
Mushroom King
Chuck Ikeda

I also painted the back of this glassless shadowbox and glued the vintage serving spoon inside. 

These are 3 of the 5 wood rounds in assorted heigth that turned out amazing.  I am off hunting for more stumps to cut. 

I am off to put together my first ever blog giveaway.  Stay tuned.
