Last night I did some things…. One of the big things was destructing my tchotchke lamp. Yes I loved that lamp when I first bought it but I rarely turned it on because it would get hot and sometimes smell funny. Then the cat chewed the cord, and he doesn’t usually do that kind of thing. I received advice on how to fix it with a splicer thing from the hardware store which I considered. Last night as I was looking at it while I was on the phone I realized that I liked most of the elements of this lamp but I didn’t love the lamp itself. I took it all apart and gutted the electrical parts from it. I have already completed one project and have some others in the works…pictures to follow.
I also went through the box of pictures I inherited that belonged to my great uncle. I picked a hand full of my favorite pictures and started rereading the letters. I made it halfway through the letters while marking the ones that I liked best. Somehow I am going to combine that hand full of pictures and the few letters that stand out….I just haven’t figured out the how yet. I will eventually figure it out. My uncle is the keeper of old family pictures so I will turn the whole box over to him this week. The letters are harder to part with….I haven’t decided if I am keeping those or sending them with the pictures?
Today after work KB and her daughter stopped over. I called her yesterday to see if she was interested in going through my kit from Lemongrass Spa since I am not selling it anymore. I kept a little, KB took some, and her daughter had a field day and I am glad because I tossed the rest of it in the trash. One more thing I don’t need that is out of the house!
The holiday season is sneaking up fast and I still need to come up with some ideas for handcrafted presents. I have a few ideas but I am nowhere near as prepared as I should be! Plus….I still have to make up a Medusa costume tomorrow for Thursday. Yes, I am a true procrastinator!
What are the odds? Crazy, I know! I really need to make a list of supplies tonight so I am prepared tomorrow. I think I am going to try and wire the snakes to a headband tonight and then tomorrow I can spray paint and embellish them in enough time to dry. I also need to check my glitter stash…Halloween is definitely an excuse to glitter and sparkle….Zia
