One of my repeat customers ( Monica ) brought me 2 book cases that she searched high and low for - it took a long time to find 2 identical ones - but she's a lesson in perseverance let me tell you and they are such a great CL find. The owner apparently just had them piled into his garage - and they hadn't been used in years.
Last year I had painted a coffee table ( and had fallen in love with it and decided to keep ) when I received
a frantic email from Monica - " please please please tell me you are selling that coffee table you just did - I've
been looking for one just like it forever " ( you can read about that makeover here )
and so now it resides in her living room - and this whole time she has been looking for the perfect 2 book cases to compliment it.................
Friday night she brought 2 of these over
Now most of you know that I'm a vampire - and that I'm up most of the night - for some reason I get a lot more accomplished in the middle of the night then I ever could once the sun comes up.................
BUT sometimes it's easy to get a little creeped out when you're working while the rest of the world is sleeping.
Sometimes it feels like there's eyes all over the place watching you
|SHE'S GOT BETTE DAVIS EYES|
Suzan says - They creep me out, totally
John says - They're only knots in the wood
Suzan says - YOU see knots in the wood - I see dead people
John says - Oh for God's Sakes - what is wrong with you?
Suzan says -DO NOT TELL ME that you don't see eyes John - because you're not being honest if you don't
John says -Actually I think they could be boobs
Suzan says - uggghhh - you're sick, you know that?
John says - And you're not? It's a rational thought to see eyes all over a piece of furniture?
Suzan says - You're becoming a pervert - get away from me
John roars - and walks away
Suzan worriedly runs to a mirror - because I'm in worse shape than I thought if he can equate them to to any part of my anatomy..................
There were at least 8 sets of eyes on one of the bookcases
|TURN AROUND BRIGHT EYES..............|
|IN THE TWILIGHT GLOW I SEE - BLUE EYES CRYING IN THE GRAIN|
|I CAN SEE FOR MILES AND MILES AND MILES|
Suzan says - ON the bookshelf
John says - I suppose that's a photo op for the blog
Suzan says - NO - I did it for you - I thought you'd get a laugh out of it
John says - You didn't do it for me - you did it for the blog
John says - Why didn't you hang a brassiere from it?
Suzan says - BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT BOOBS - THEY'RE EYES!!!!!!!!!!!
Suzan says - I'm not posting this conversation anyway - trust me.......................
THAT THE NIGHT
HAS A THOUSAND EYES........................
Or it did - I've quickly taken care of that.
AND not like this either
|weird post calls for a weird bra|
I just used paint..................
What does everyone else see?
I mean they're so obviously eyes, right?
I've never heard of a ghost exposing themselves before - what would be the point?
Unless they were haunting a certain type of establishment of course................
And though our home could be classified as an insane asylum - it is most definitely
not a brothel.
Hopefully I'll have this finished tonight and can show you all tomorrow this transformation
( it's now officially as blind as a bat ) I'm going to take this from a boobcase to a bookcase - mark my words!!!!
Have a great Monday,
