random stuff…

i’m yawning like crazy, but i thought i’d upload a few new random photos..of whatelse…random stuff. i have to hurry. i need to go to bed. arek starts summer school in the morning. he says ‘i love summer school. i love the bus’. like he’s been before, on a bus and knows how much fun he had. he keeps asking me if they have recess. i don’t think he realizes that it is school. not camp. not the pool. not a babysitter that lets you do whatever you want. it’s school. yikes. wait until he finds out!!!! i keep telling him it will be fun. all those free meals and new friends!!!! oh…yes…you still have to do some really hard second grad math!!! i didn’t tell you that?????? wish us luck.

my friend robyn gave me some really shabby rocking chairs this morning. they’ve been sitting in her yard collecting the wear from the texas elements….PERFECT!!! i’m surprised my husband hasn’t put them by the road yet. anyway, i scrubbed them good w/some gritty sandpaper and slapped a think coat of honey pine poly on them!!! I LOVE THEM!! thanks robyn!! zoey loves them too. she was rocking like an old woman in them today. oh wait, that was me!!! hee hee.

i managed to hit the G.W. this weekend, but i didn’t snap any photos yet of my $7 bling!!!!! i didn’t get much, but i did find the most wonderful, unusual thing…..a pink foot massager…DR. SCHOLL. it looks something like this one…..http://us.nine.ebid.net/perl/auction.cgi?auction=1160844385-26195-0&mo=auction&from=froogle

but it has a place for both feet! i might have to keep it and let the kids play with it if they are REALLY good. yes, most kids get an ice cream, a new ball or an xbox game or a new movie or something like that. not my youngins….they get…….DRUMROLL PLEASE………A VINTAGE PINK FOOT MASSAGER!!!!!!! 

i also found some cute plates, bowls, a lamp and some other stuff. i’ll post soon.

in the world of projects….here is s storage unit i found for a song and decoupaged with some vintage papers.

i think almost everything has potential!! these were on their way to the trash probably. i also decided to put all my vintage small toys into a large jar. these are toys that just weren’t moving at all out of my booth. oh well….hate to see them just sit and take up merchandise space, so i put them all in a big jar and i think they all look eerily cute.

i have only one more thing. a really fast and easy cobbler recipe….

shown above is blueberry. i make this stuff all the time!!!

GET A PAN…ADD SOME FROZEN OR CANNED FRUIT (I USED FROZEN BLUEBERRIES). COVER YOUR BAKING PAN/DISH WITH FRUIT. USE SOME DRY CAKE MIX (I USE JIFFY CAKE MIX AND LOVE IT) AND SPRINKLE IT OVER FRUIT. MELT STICK OF BUTTER OVER CAKE MIX AND BAKE AT 400 FOR ABOUT 35 MINUTES!! THEN EAT AND ENJOY W/WHIPPED CREAM, ICE CREAM, OR FROZEN YOGURT. 

it’s like a dump cake cobbler. sooooooooo easy.  i eat this a la mode. sooo yummy!!!

okay…like the eyes are closing. must sleep…must sleep.

lol
