Do you remember the post that I did last week where I talked about the book, “take my wife, please?” Well, I am rewriting that book to say HUSBAND instead of wife. If any of you want to place on a bid on a semi-used husband, I will entertain all offers. Let me tell you what Joe did Saturday, get comfortable and get ready to say, “no way, he surely didn’t do that.”I love vintage items, and I have slowly been collecting Fostoria glassware. I say slowly because that is how my mother has been giving it to me. Lol! When I go to Tennessee to visit my mom and dad, she will usually send me home with several pieces that she has found in her cupboards. One time when she sent a small box home with me, my car was loaded down, and I didn’t unpack the entire car for a while. I had a gentleman clean my car after I got back and he took the few things that I had in my car and sat them inside Joe’s building. The spring cleaning bug has bitten Joe and me, and we have been cleaning and organizing the entire past week. He was working in his building all day Saturday, and I was in the house with Emersyn most of the day. Emersyn and I went out to see what all he was doing out there and I made sure to tell him NOT to get rid of anything that was mine unless he asked me first. This is a pattern with him when he cleans, he gives away MY things and doesn’t ask. Late Saturday night he came in from outside and said, “I might have screwed up.” Those are never words that you want to hear your husband say to you. I raised my eyebrow and asked what he had done. He asked me if I had some clear cups in the building and I said that I did. “I might have thrown them in the dumpster” was what he told me. A few words were spoken, and I looked at Emersyn and told her that we weren’t mad. She told me that we looked mad. Lol! Joe left and then came back soaking wet. Did I mention that it was pouring the rain outside? He went back to the dumpster and had to climb down inside it to find the box of cups. This is a true tribute to how well vintage glassware was made because not one cup was broken. I would say that he learned his lesson about getting rid of my things, but I know better. Lol! Emersyn laughed and laughed and said, “Pa has been dumpster diving!!!”
I found this deep dark teal knit twist top at Trendy Threads, the local boutique in town, and I took it home to try on. I hardly ever try anything on in a store because I hate the whole process of taking off and putting back on. Anyway, I bought a large but when I tried it on it was too big, so I set it aside to take back. I looked around and noticed a bag that came from Trendy Threads on the other side of the room, so I went and looked inside. There was this very same top inside but in a medium, which fit perfectly by the way. I want to say that this is the first time something like this has happened, but I am afraid lightning would strike if I did. I love dark teal, especially in the fall and winter,
It looks like I have on my favorite earrings again. Lol! I can’t help it; I told you that the Jewel earrings go with anything, dressy or casual. I love the large silver pearl and the clear rhinestones. The set of 3 bracelets is the Maeve. These elastic bracelets feature beads and metal discs, and then each has a separate charm or tassel. I like that you can wear these bracelets as a group or one at a time.
Look how cute my scarf is that I got for Christmas from my Sister-In-Law. The scarf is by Spartina 449, and this one is called the Tennessee scarf. I loved this present, and I couldn’t wait to wear it. You can see Cookeville on the scarf, and that is about 15 minutes from my hometown, and it is where Joe and I met. You can check out Spartina 449 and see if they have a scarf that is where you are from; they have several different ones available. I am in an old pair of blue jeans today. This pair is Earl jeans, and I bought them at TJ Maxx or Marshalls, I am not sure which. I wanted to wear a flat with today’s look, so I slipped on my Isaac Mizrahi navy suede ballet slipper. The ballet slipper is comfortable, but some of them have to be broken in first. This pair curled up when I bought them, and it took me wearing them several times before they relaxed and quit bothering me. Now they are one of the most comfortable flats that I own.
When is the last time that you had the opportunity to partner with a BILLION dollar company? Does that opportunity happen to you all the time? Look at my face closely, look at my skin, look at my lashes. Then, look in your cabinets and tell me if you have a lot of products stuffed in them that made big promises but didn’t follow through on them. Rodan + Fields is different. Their products WORK! Quit wasting time wondering and watching. Email me and let’s talk. firstname.lastname@example.org
BTW, if you are interested in placing a bid for Joe, you can do that in the comment section. Lol!
