Woad Wage....Elmer Fud-style...

Yep...was widein in my car, wistesning to the wadio...
dwiving home fwom work..
when I was cut-off by a wed-headed woman in a conwertable....
Yeppews, somehow the heat (and the snow, wain and wind) bwings out all the weally weally bad dwivers, huh??



But, I made it home OK and had a really pleasant day over-all.
Free lunch (and who says there's no such a thing??) Thanks, University of Phoenix...in Utah (?)

Field trip with Sacha my boss - a pretty little easel as a present (!) and a fun new shop discovered. The Sliver Star - they call them selves a hardware store- but that doesn't begin to explain what they offered. Coffee - gourmet coffee. And teas. Special blends.

And old door knobs. And Brothel tokens (?) And rusty door hinges. And cards. I got these 2...


I think I'll put this one on a composition book cover with pretty papers and velvet ribbon...


I always look for cards with 3 women - or cats - or anything in 3's - for me & my sisters. Found this and had to get it...actually 3 - one for each of us. Love the artwork. (none of us really look like that...just to be clear..)
But the words...oh yes..this is where we are in our lives!

And here's the easel in action...Lovely, huh?! What a treat. Thanks Sacha - I do so appreciate you!

Hope you all have sweet dreams and weally weally good Wednesday....

I just love the card with the three women...especially the little figures underneath actually doing what the first four things say....then the three dancing like no one is watching! You have an eye for the most interesting finds! By the way, do you think Elmer Fudd named Wednesday? Did it start out as Rednesday? Tee hee. Betty

Hi Colleen,
Just caught up on your last few posts. As always, you make me smile! You must tell me some day how on earth you trained Mr. B. to go to the grocery store! I HATE the grocery store with a passion!

Hugs!

Glad you're okay! I agree about the weather doing strange things to normal people. I had a lawn care truck turn right from the lane beside me the other day. I was in the turn lane and he just decided that he needed to be where I was! I just had a feeling he was going to do something silly, and he did.
The cards are wonderful and the easel is just perfect for your tiles!
You will have to show us what a Brothel token looks like. A token? Like for the subway? My imagination is running wild. ;)
