When I tell you I'm flying by the seat of my pants, you have no idea, I literally can't catch up with myself lately :)
Ok - where to start?
We went for the 2nd viewing yesterday to see the cottage - and now we're going to try to sit down this weekend and work out the pros and ( cons ) of purchasing this little gem...............
Then we flew out of there and rushed back home so that I could get ready to celebrate Caroline's
from Piorra Maison opening of her second store !!!
OMG - it's just fabulous - in a very hip trendy part of Montreal - most people bring plants to store openings I bring doors - as in this one
You'll remember it from this post ( HERE )
as soon as it was done I knew I would be giving it to her - but couldn't mention it here because Caroline reads my blog ( she's nosy like that )
I even had it signed by..............................Annie Sloan ( it's not a forgery either - and I didn't transfer it on - I actually got the owner of Annie Sloan's hand to do it!!!
How did you do that Suzan? ( you may be asking yourself )
Why I simply asked her of course !!!
(Annie's trip to Montreal coincided with Caroline's GRAND opening )
I even got the owner of Annie Sloan's hands to stand in front of it
and then I somehow managed to get the owner of Annie Sloan's hand to wrap itself around me
( never mind what the other hand is doing - which is saying " she's nuts " )
And then I let her mingle a little LMHO....................
It was a blast - I met people who know me through my blog - what a surreal thing it is to have people you've never met - approach you and mention the house you're thinking of buying or a red dresser you painted months ago - or ( BRACE YOURSELF ) show you a portfolio of furniture they've started painting because they were inspired by this blog !!!!!!!
Unbelievable - completely unbelievable..................
Ok - I've been on a guilt trip the last few weeks - I haven't had time to visit any of you - or to reply to any comments - ( I know I've mentioned it before - and I don't mean to sound like a broken record - but I really do feel bad about it ) so..............................
I decided this week what I was going to do - it's give away time again.
This time it's a THANK YOU FOR BEING MY FRIEND GIVE AWAY and it's brought to you by
Piorra Maison and Annie Sloan ( and me - because hey it was my idea completely after all )
AND - believe it or not - I got the owner of Annie Sloan's hand to sign it for the lucky winner!!!
What do you say?
Am I forgiven?
Here's all you have to do - and these are my rules - not Caroline's or Annie's -
LIKE Piorra Maison's facebook page HERE and Annie Sloan's HERE - you absolutely do NOT have to be a follower of this wacky ( mine ) blog to win this ( but you have to leave a comment so I know you've entered the draw ) and you don't even have to be a blogger ( because non bloggers are people too LOL )
Good luck everyone !!!
( maybe I'll enter it also because I'd love to have a signed copy of this book too LMHO )
Thank you for being a friend
( I've travelled down the road and back again
Your hearts are true, you're my pals and my confident's )
And if you threw a party........................
I'd bring you a door :)
On the way home
John says - I can't believe you told Annie Sloan she was bossy
Suzan says - I WAS JOKING !!!!
John says - I don't know if she knew that
Suzan says - Of course she did - it was because I was being bossy
John says - well she mentioned something about you calling the kettle black
Suzan says - SHE WAS JOKING !!!!
But that would be GRAPHITE, Annie - that would be calling the kettle graphite.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone
( Hi Susan with an S - I remembered your name :)
And Annie - you're as sweet as everyone says you are - and I'm really not that bossy lmho
Famous last words
Much love to all,
