I think everyone has seen the pictures of the two chairs i finished on the weekend. Well today they were delivered to there new home. I recieved an email before they were even finished from the Whimsical Cake Studio saying she loved them and would like to purchase them. I actually was hoping they wouldnt sell right away because i really loved them but i figured its not going to be much of a business if i keep everything for myself so off they go.
Ok so since i delivered them to the cake studio i HAD to buy some cupcakes but typical for me i couldnt just buy one or two or even 7, i had to buy a dozen! She said i could freeze them so i was like hell ya gimmy 12! I am sharing them with Kevin and his girls ... honest! I have had two today and i am so full there is no way i can eat them all myself... for real!!! Take a look at a couple of them on this awesome plate i found at a thrift store last week.
The husband and wife duo of Whimsical Cake Studio even teach classes - its like Cake Boss!! You have to check out all the cakes they have made.
Today i also wanted to say a huge thank you to Li from Creamy White for introducing me to the neighbourhood - she makes the cutest ruffle pillows and shower curtains and many other gorgeous things, so you should pop in for a visit. I heard from several new bloggers, which brings me to my second thank you - thank you new followers for all the kind words you wrote on my blog, i appreciate each and every one of them - blogging has been such a positive experience for me and i hope that i don't ever stop being excited of having new followers - i'm at 20 now by the way woohoo :) lol
I have one more item to tell you guys about ... today after i said good-bye to my chairs i said hello to a new item that ummm followed me home. I popped into one of my favorite goodwills this afternoon and found an antique end table. I was trying to decide, should i buy it or should i say no because of the scary site of my shop area (see my last post) so of coarse i did what anyone of us would have done, i put it over my shoulder and walked proudly to the till. Oh i forgot to say that when i was trying to make a decision this guy came up to me and was like "you really need to watch out because most of those are replicas" and he flipped it over and was like "yup you have to be careful for the fake partical board tables" and then he walked away a couple of steps. Ok so the table was so not a fake and it was so obvious that it was REAL wood ... nice try buddy, how stupid do i look (maybe don't answer that lol).
At the till i was waiting behind this lovely lady and we started talking and i told her my story, about my chairs i just sold and she thought it was fantastik that i was doing this - i of coarse gave her my blog address so i'm hoping Goodwill lady comes for a visit - anyway, she told the cashier that she knew me and asked if i could use her seniors discount and the cashier said yes so i got the table for even less. Isn't that awesome? Goodwill lady if you are reading this post i wanted to say thank you again for your kindness, i really appreciate it. So here is the super cute table that followed me home today and jumping into the spotlight is one of my cats Paytah who was very curious.
