Settling Tabs & Running Errands …


August 8, 2015 by Terry

Yesterday I spent the day doing just that … settling tabs and running errands!

Usually on days that are dedicated to things like that tend to feel unproductive as I don’t get any visual gratification out of being able to see my accomplishments.  I know I’ve gotten a few things done, but boy were they time consuming so it doesn’t seem like much was accomplished.

Yesterday was different.  I ran straight away to the Creamery to settle up my Paint tab and pay for the antique drill press I had bought from one of the vendors there.  I cannot wait to share with you what my plans for this drill press are!  Hopefully I will execute those plans soon.

The lady who sells the Milk paint and Chalk paint there is a sweet lady and she allows me to run a Paint tab there each month.  I am thrilled to announce that she is now carrying Fusion paint and I can hardly wait to try it out!  I think my tab just grew!!  Ha ha…

Next stop was to deliver a couple more items to the wedding site.  Remember the China cabinet I made over for the outdoor wedding?  Also the 3 teired table?

9#8Well I decided that because the Mother of the bride has been such a big fan of my work and has entrusted me with some pretty important things, I wanted to give her a gift as well.

So I brought her out this accent chair to go beside the Antiqued Linen China Hutch…

1920's chair 5When I got there they were all calmly (yes, calmly … can you believe it?) buzzing around the gorgeous property decorating and primping for the wedding!  Then I walked into the tent and my jaw dropped!  What a stunning event this wedding will be!

I actually drove down the driveway with tears in my eyes over how beautiful their day will be!  My daughters thought I was nuts since I don’t even really know the people but I don’t care… I’m happy for them!

Next stop was out to another country home to deliver a piece I did a short time ago.


 The piece was in my booth so while I was settling my tabs at the creamery I loaded it up to take to it’s new home.  I don’t mind delivering pieces for my repeat customers.  This lady has become more than a customer anyways, she is a great friend.  I love going out to their country home as well.

While we were there we enjoyed some kittens, and the horses, a few calves and played with the new puppy!  My girls and I left with huge smiles on our faces laughing about all the sweet animals we got to play with.

Having a day with errands like that to do are very fulfilling and rewarding.  I wish all errand days were like that one!

I hope you are having a great weekend!

Thank you to all who joined up to my first linky furniture party!  I hope you will join in again starting on Thursday evening next week.  I can’t wait to watch it grow with all your talents!

      The lights in the tent were just being set up when I brought everything out so I never got to see it all put together. The Bride’s mom assured me they were going to share pictures of it all though. I haven’t heard from her yet. Sorry it has taken me so long to reply, I have been very under the weather and today is my first day up and about.
      Hope you’re having a great day!

Playing along with @prodigalpieces for #trashure this week. This large frame used to house a tacky old #vintage picture but with a little #milkpaint it has transformed into this large chalkboard. (Btw... it says EAT not FAT lol! ) what's not to love in this photo! 💕#thecuratorscollection Thoughts on this table??? Creating a beautiful rustic outdoor dining area... this entire table is salvaged wood. The base found separately from the top and joined together to form this unique outdoor living space. Along with the chandelier we added in some beautiful patio lights on the beams creating a dreamy setting for a lovely summer evening outside.  Playing along with @prodigalpieces today #trashure #thecuratorscollection #design #outdoorliving #patio #rustic #reclaimedwood FATTABULOUS time spent today with Angie of @absolutecustomdesigns helping with a FAT PAINT workshop.
