SconcesI have about 15 different things I want to photograph and talk about, but I’m recovering from an energy-sucking cold that appeared last Friday and is finally on it’s way out the door, so pictures will have to wait. I have three more days of work and then, and then…Four Weeks Off! How happy am I about this? Oh so happy! I have big plans and big lists and a trip to Disneyland with my cute, worm-loving niece, somewhere in the middle of all that. Do you know what I am going to do on Monday? I am going to put a big, fat dent in the $250 gift card to a new spa that recently opened in a nearby town (I got the gift card for Valentine’s day, lucky me!). I’m going to my favorite Thai restaurant for lunch, I’m going to hit a few thrift stores and antique malls, and I’m going to visit my acupuncture doctor who does wonderful things with those little needles. And then I will have four weeks to make things! I will be making things for my poor, neglected shop, I will be painting rooms and hanging curtains and Spring cleaning, and blogging about it all! Oh the things I can do when I don’t have to spend two hours every day in my car and another one running errands and another eight working. I don’t have any pictures of my own to share at the moment, but I just love these sconces. I think I would like two little houses to replace the hideous country style sconces in my living room. They will have to wait, however, until I tear down the equally hideous wallpaper, complete with the duck decoy border that I have lived with for nearly five years. It might just be gone during my Four Weeks Off! Four weeks! You’ll be hearing a lot from me during the next, oh I don’t know, four weeks or so.


  1. I’m sorry, can you tell me again how long you are going to be on Sabbatical? šŸ™‚ I’d be excited, too. Can’t wait to see what great things you do.

  2. Okay we get the message 4 weeks off!
    You must be in 7th heaven, what absolute bliss. Enjoy.

  3. Have a great vacation!

  4. Have a fantastic sabbatical! Thank you for posting those sconces, they are amazing!

  5. I can’t wait to see all that you accomplish! Hopefully Mimi and I will be of some help! Enjoy your Monday of luxury, I can’t wait to hear about it! Hope the weather is nice today for the egg stand!
