On a whim I decided to come and visit the parentals, in Camdenton, Missouri this week. They have a beautiful home on Lake of the Ozarks and I am very happy to report that we will be enjoying a day of boating, in a pleasant 90 degress today, yay!! We have had partial sunny, mostly cloudy days ( whatever the heck that means, are they not one in the same?) And today will be our first day of full, 100% SUN!!
GOOD MORNING CAMDENTON!!!!
Seriously, does it get any better than this? I do have to say myself that I could wake up to this every morning. No wonder the people back here are so happy! I would be too, now if I could just figure out how to become independently wealthy…..
Seven in the morning, large cup of coffee and blogging. This really is the life. Is this not the best way to blog? Perhaps I just sell AB HOME and move here. I could be property management. Make sure everything is as it should be….
Well the good news is I have managed to get a little work in. Mom took me to the local thrift store, where to my surprise, lay some of the worlds best treasures…who knew?!
As we approched Bear ( name of the converted Wal-mart, now a thrift store) I was dragging my feet. Nothing good could possibly come out of a dilapidated store, with crusty windows, dust bunnies, and the depot for redneck central. We walked inside to find broken fans and cell phones, disassembled bed frames and smelly clothes. Why on earth am I here, I thought. But then out of the corner of my eye, I caught a glimpse of this
My excitement suddenly turned giddy. What a gorgeous peice! This would look beautiful in a lacquered white paint, and carrera marble top. Oh the thought of it in my store with my acid green lamps, pure design magic! Then I saw this,
Can you stand it? I was drooling over this hardware. This would be gorgeous in black, and would also make an incredible bathroom vanity. At this point the employees were starting to give me the stink eye. They couldn’t understand why I was getting desperately excited over junk. But the piece de’ resistance, ( no joke I may have peed myself) were these beauties. At this point the angels were singing, and design magic was occuring right underneath our noses! I scooped these up, and dad put them in the truck to come home.
So I did what any GOOD designer would do. I immediatley contacted Dayka, over at meditations on life and style and rubbed it in. I emailed her all my fabulous finds, and like a coy fox, I asked her what she would do with them, knowing full well she was shorting out her computer with envious drool. I think she may have even cracked a rib when she fell out of her chair because she was having a hard time breathing. I was too, but luckily my mom is a nurse and could administer CPR if necessary!
(Ok no joke, she really did hurt herself doing something, so head over to her blog and give her some well wishes!) I hope all of you are having a fabulous weekend and I will be thinking of you while I’m out in the sun with booze and boating! Happy day to all!!!
