You don't want to miss this...all of us plus at least 30 vendors coming in to sell a wide variety of very cool items-oh boy!!!!!

In thinking for over a month that I was completely moving out of the shop plus The Strawberry Days on Sunday, I've been pulling out every dang thing that's not being useful or giving me a buzz to look at and slapping on paint, or not, to get it ready for my yard sale booth on Sunday. Above is my new coffee table thanks to a great trip to Nene's yesterday. She was getting ready to take it to the dump (I know, it didn't even make her cut!) when I asked about it. It was immediately mine. Brought it home, washed out the spiders, webs, and eggs, dried it, and popped that bad boy under the Hoova, and voila!!!! I totally heart it. I swear these are the kinds of tables they sell at Round Top for $400. Another bonus is that more of my beautiful Mc-K-C rug shows even more. The cool off-white piano bench that was there is now FOR SALE at the shop...
...I got this as a project piece from one of Nene and my's secret places I got for the shop. The wood was raw pine, like it had been stripped and left-I loved it. But the upholstery was bright red with tiny gold stars. I didn't feel like taking the time or money to re-do too much so I spray painted the whole thing, upholstery and all, off-white which makes the fabric still soft to touch but also makes the fabric look like old, faded pink. I liked it so much I plopped in at the table in our family room and it looks too good and comfy and actually useful that I'm keeping it-for now. I don't have to be quite so frantic now that I'm not thinking of Sunday as THE LAST DAY I'LL EVER SELL ANYTHING. Whew! Better hurry to the previous post for explaination.

Don't think I haven't noticed that my challenges haven't gotten a lot of response from y'all 'cause I have. Okay so on this one the prize won't just be a life but an actual package of little goodies in the mail. Comment on your opinion then I'll pick randomly after Sunday...big doings on Sunday-remember-The Strawberry Days at The Pink Cabbage? Supposed to be my last day...
...So is it wrong to tell your fellow co-op'ers at your shop that you are moving out, let them throw you a fabulous dinner party and give you gifts, then change your mind at the last moment to stay? No kidding, I've known people who've done such outrageous things and now...I'm one of them!!!!! Yikes!!!! I don't know what I was thinking but I guess it was "all or nothing at all". I'm moving into the smallest area in the shop, the small closet (by small I mean 4' X 2' ?) and a small wall outside of it. I pickled tink over the deal Jody made me that I would have to be too stupid to refuse. Fortunately I'm really dumb but not completely stupid. I'm Oh So Lucky! See you Sunday...
P.S. I plan to have a party for the shop girls treating them after I finish my workroom re-do. Don't you think that would be a good way to balance things a bit? No pot luck, just lucky pots full of food!
