furniture decorating and meme!

In my last post, I mentioned I had spent some time on Mother's Day painting a table I found for $1. At a garage sale. This is how it's turned far! I think I need to dot the inside of the daisy. And, the legs need a little more life as well. But... I knew you just couldn't wait any longer to see this, so here it is! I do not plan to keep it in the main part of the house... it will go in my basement laundry area.

Did you get a newspaper on Sunday? If so, there is a coupon in one of the coupon flyers/booklets that has Kraft salad dressing for $1.50 off a bottle. Take it in to Kroger's, this week, because they're running a sale on it for $1.58. You pay .08 cents for it. I bought a bottle of the Tomato Vinegarette.... great for marinating chicken on the grill!

I found this meme on Penny's blog- Diosa Del Desierto on my sidebar... and thought it looked fun! Here I go:

1. What are your current obsessions? writing my children's novel, thinking about the story line of the novel, painting furniture, decorating, flower gardening and blanket stitched felted crafts.

2. Which item from your wardrobe to you wear the most? holey levi's, anything black.

3. What was your favorite childhood meal? school lunches that my mom packed: salami with mustard sandwich, frito's and Little Debbie snack cake! And, an apple I always threw away, but told her I ate. I lied.

4. Last thing you bought? After my mammogram this morning, in Penny's neighborhood.... I stopped at Goodwill and bought: a pillowcase for .50 cents and a pink-earthy hoodie and a stack of new white linen napkins to embroidery on.

5. What are you listening to? Fox news. Runs all day long. Love the libertarian views.

6. If you were a god/goddess who would you be? God.

7. Favorite holiday spots? Traverse City and I miss Manhattan.

8. Reading right now? Blogs and my new Simple Living magazine.

9. Four words to describe yourself? dependable, crazy imagination, over-thinker, bleached.

10. Guilty pleasures? reading blogs, garage sales and thrift shops.

11. Who or what makes you laugh until you're week? My cousin Jeff and my cousin Cathy. Although, when my dad was alive.... he could make me laugh until my stomach hurt and tears streamed down my face...ALL THE TIME! I miss it!

12. Planning to travel to next? Camp with the scouts!

13. What is the best thing you ate or drank lately? Arby's FREE fruity Mandarin Peach tea and homemade chocolate zucchini bread with white chocolate chips!

14. When is the last time you got tipsy? 1983? I just don't drink.

15. Favorite film of all time? Fiddler on the Roof, Being There and Evita.

16. Care to share some wisdom? He who leaps into the void, owes no explanation to those who stand by and watch.

17. Song you can't get out of your head right now? God is an Awesome God.

18. What one object you would save from a house fire? Videos of my dad. Videos of Tommie's childhood.

19. What is your aim in life? To repay all the kindness people have shown me...
