Hubby and I last Friday bought the remains of an estate sale. We didn't buy out the furniture - we bought all the "smalls" (lamps, pictures, glassware, etc. basically, everything except furniture). I plopped myself down on one end of the couch and began sorting and pricing. Estate sale items have a tendency to be clean because they've been more recently used as opposed to consignment auctions. Many consignment items are unearthed from forgotten corners of garages, basements, even abandoned houses. Sooo...I had fewer items that needed scrubbing and laundering. The picture above was taken from my perspective on the couch AFTER one full day of sitting there working. Most of the items were still in our box truck, which was packed completely full, all the way back to the door.
The lady was a super-seamstress as well as a wonderful crafter. This snowman is a jar that she had covered. The nose was sewn onto the snowface before it was glued to the jar. I thought this was just too cute and had to show it to you.
We've since taken two loads to the Corner Nest. Most of the remaining items have been moved from the truck into the office where I can sit at the computer desk and work on them. The living room is once again ours!
My goal was to load our booths in the shop to almost overflow status as my surgery is MONDAY and it may be a few more days before I can get back there to restock and "fluff".
The results of my MRI? Are you ready for this??? I tore both ligaments, both menisci, fractured my tibia (hairline), have bone spurs behind my knee (which I already knew) and have quite a bit of swelling from not only the injury but from my OA and RA (osteoarthritis and rhematoid arthritis). My ortho had to wait for my Orencia infusion to be worked out of my system before he could operate. As you probably already know, rhematoid meds reduce your immune system to pretty much zero so the meds had to get out of my system in order to fight any onset of infection. I should be able to resume my meds two weeks post op (if no problems arise).
See you again soon!
