These 4 little teacups and saucers were $1--and they are Wedgwood! The seller said they are a replica of the Queen's china.
Got these trays for $.75 each and the wooden candlestick for a quarter. It'll make a great pedestal for a plate or wooden bowl. The flag tray is in really good shape and the other isn't too bad. Should I paint them or leave alone? They're both going to the flea market booth.
When I go to pick my daughter up from work, I usually take 3-year-old Bubba with me. Within 5 miles, he's sound asleep and stays that way till we get home. That gives him enough of a nap so he stays happy, but still goes to bed at a decent hour. Today he must have been really tired, because he stayed asleep while I brought him inside and laid him on the couch.
Lastly, my guardian angel was on duty big time this afternoon. I blow dry my hair most days, and in these dog days of summer, it can get mighty hot in my bedroom. I have pretty thick hair, so I set the dryer as high possible. I have on occasion been known to try and have the window AC on while doing my hair--which usually leads to a tripped circuit. Today I did not have the AC on and was going about my merry way, when WHAM! Loud pop and bright spark of light and the whole room goes dark. I called to Darrell, who patiently went and checked the circuits. Pretty soon, everything came back on. I turned on the hair dryer and...nothing. So I hit the reset button. Still...nothing. I squatted on the floor near the outlet to make sure I hit the reset button correctly--all the time holding the dryer in my left hand. About that time, Darrell came in and asked "where's the cord?" I said "right here....uhhh, where IS the cord?" Apparently, that spark I saw was the cord "exploding" off the dryer! Glad somebody up there likes me!
