Happy Day After and etsy SALE WEEKEND!

I hope everyone had a wonderful day yesterday. We are having our Thanksgiving today, so I have a lot to get done this morning.

My dryer decided to pack it in yesterday, right in the middle of drying sheets, people blankets and dog blankets. Irv was able to mess with it each time it clunked out and get it going again, until the very last load of dog blankets. That was it...the dryer was done. The dryer is very old and we can't get a replacement we will be out dryer shopping tomorrow. What a bummer! Here is what Irv and the three dogs looked like last night after a long day of cleaning and dryer repair! You can see Sparky's little head behind Maggie!

I got into trouble at this new little shop someone had recommended to me this week. First of all, I was there Wednesday morning and found this darling little vintage table that was perfect, and I mean perfect for between our two little chairs!

Then Irv and I went back in the afternoon because they had a lot of lamps that I liked. Of course, we found one, but it wasn't a resale one, it was new...but made to look old. We bought it. It's pretty funky and I'm sure the kids will look at it today and say, "WTF is that?", but I thought it was a riot! I moved the chairs so you can see the whole table with the funky lamp!

I found a dark brown couch cover. I'm not in love with it, but we decided a lighter one would just not work with the dogs. A couple of muddy paws and it will never look the same again, so we opted for the dark brown. It looks nice with the chairs and the walls, so I'm fine with it.

I hung Matt's pictures too. I just love them. I had to go a little high because there will be a table with a lamp in that corner and I didn't want them to be too hidden.

I have some work to do on the drapes. I hemmed them and after I hung them, they stretched, so now they are laying ON the floor, and 2 panels was not enough for the front window, but 4 is too many. Might have to do some cutting and sewing. We will see.

I have a BIG sale going in my etsy shop FourDogDay. Lots and lots of FREE shipping and 20% off coasters and cake stands. I had some sales yesterday so I am one happy little shop owner!

Well, I really need too scoot. The pumpkin pies are done which means I can have some for breakfast and I need to still make the apple! Have a wonderful day today and I will chat with you soon.

Your home is lovely. It's peaceful and serene. I'd probably fall asleep there, that's how comfortable it feels. :D

Love the photo of Irv and the dogs all sacked out on the couch!

Thanks for the picture of hubby and the dogs on the sofa. What utter contentment!

Good luck on your dryer search. Shopping for appliances is such a drag. Especially Today!
