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?
Well 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…
When 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!
