What I Did On My Blogging Vacation

Though technically, I did some of this yesterday after I 'came back' from vacation.

-- I rearranged my dream room after seeing a similar room in an old issue of Mary Engelbret's Home Companion. Magazines are great for seeing your old things in new ways!

--I painted this bookshelf (as well as the floor lamp in the first photo.)

--I framed these old advertising fans which I found cheaply on Ebay in a frame which I found cheaply at Salvation Army. I make my coffee and greet these ladies. "Good morning, Ladies," I say.

--I hung these plates on a rack I found for $1 at a yard sale. (Does anyone know the official name of these 'lady plates' so I can look them up on Ebay? I'd like to find another yellow one.)

--I bought this musty, old book at a junk shop for 75 cents.
I finally started painting this dollhouse which we found three years ago at a yard sale for only $5(!). Key word: started. I'll be working on this for years.

The End.

Oh, how fun, Debra! And this will satisfy the artistic side of you very much!

I've always wanted to go to Chicago to see the dollhouses there in a museum.........
