As a follow up to my last post I must tell you two stories that my sister Molly reminded me of, that happened when we were at Lakewood Antiques....... we had just gotten there and were walking up towards the first building, and there was this man there selling really cool furniture, the type that is made from vines etc. We were drawn to it and so we walked over just looking around and he was having a conversation with a woman, explaining what the piece was made out of etc. We just sort of heard the tale end of the conversation but all of a sudden we heard him say in the most southern drawl you can possibly imagine, "Nawww Ma'am, Rhodie don't bend" ROFL!!!!! I guess she thought it was made from Rhododendron branch's...... I guess not!!
We both just busted out laughing, I don't know what he thought, or if he noticed. Then I am so embarrassed to even tell ya'll about this one, but OMG it was so funny! I guess I must have gotten caught up in the frenzy of looking at these gorgeous tassels there, from one vendor....they were so pretty, and some in all sizes......and after looking at them for a while, I finally bought several of them, and I had it in my mind that I was going to hang them from the posts on my bed. Oh I couldn't wait to see how they looked! So we got back to my house and my sister was still there, and I got them out and said "c'mon, lets see how they look.........so we went in there and I just stopped dead in my tracks when I came into the bedroom. I had forgotten that we had a new bed!!!!!!!!!! It was an iron scrolly headboard on both ends, and I didn't even have the four poster bed frame anymore because we gave it to my stepdaughter Pam when we got the new bed! DUhhhhhhhhhhhhh.......she didn't think about it either, but when we realized how stupid it all was we both just fell on the bed laughing our heads off!!!!!! I got up somehow and mimiced me putting it on the post that wasn't even there! It all worked out though, I found places for them anyhow! Silly me!!! I hope you all have a creative fun day! I am going to get some hi-lites today! Yay! No more mousy brown :D See yall!
