From My Sketchbook

Have a beautiful weekend!

I'm headed down to Round Top for the last couple of days of Antique Week.
I'm hoping to find just the right chandelier.
And maybe a bench...
because someone seems to think five hundred dollars is too much money
to spend on a chair that nobody,
except the people who go into our closet,
will see, let alone use and will need to be re-padded before it's even able to be used.
Alright... I'm not conceding, but he might have a point... might.
But it is a french antique and has the perfect,
p e r f e c t
golden-yellow, velvet brocade upholstery on it, which happens to be
p e r f e c t l y

Anyway, I'm a little hesitant to go
seeing as how Rachel Ashwell has been down there for a week and half
buying up all of the good stuff.
I'm really not sure there will be anything left.

But mainly,
I'm truly worried that my old beast will no longer be with us by the time I get back.
And it will doubly break my heart if I'm not there holding her at the very last.
Of course, that silly old dog has tricked us like this before.

Good luck. I'm like you and would want to just get the chair with the perfect fabric.

This page from your sketch book is perfect.

Lovely bird on a lovely page. The stark blue lifts it all up. I hope your doggie holds out till you are back. Isn't it sad when our pets have to go?
Where is RT exactly? America? Canada? Hope you find a chair to your liking!

sounds like a perfect chair though :-)
Have a great trip to Round Top Alisa - I hope you find your chandelier and cross my fingers your little dog will still be there when you get back.
Love your pages

Soooooooooooooo pretty & I so envy you your writing skill. BEAUTIFUL!!! Love it. I need to learn/practice it. But, I don't seem to have time to do anything but twirl & swirl through life. Bathroom remodel is done & now we start with new paint & carpet in the den & living room. Have a great week & thanks for sharing.
