My favorite stationery store has a Scottie dog named Alice as its mascot/store dog/owner's pup. Dell Harper is obsessed. These pictures are from this winter, but you get the gist.
While there, I could not resist this wrapping paper.
And these recipe cards.
On the glum side of things, my favorite road/main thoroughfare/road I drive a million times a day because it has no lights is closed until November. This is awful, and traffic is terrible. However, sitting in said traffic, I glanced out the window to spy these tables at a junkstore/antique market. I liked them. Then I was sitting in front of the store in traffic again a couple hours later, and thought about them some more. I finally bought them today, after a couple more traffic contemplations. The lady gave me some money off the marked price, which I used to promptly purchase some more antique cookbooks.
Speaking of chalk paint, Mama and I are collaborating on a painted piece of furniture for a local charity auction.
Please ignore the iPhone pictures of an unfinished project- I still have to sand and wax the red coat, which is still wet. Mama made the animals, which we are going to glue on top. I have a feeling this might have to return to my house after the auction. It has Dell Harper written all over it!
Okay, off to read my magazines and relax!
