~*ahhhhhh the stress is over *~

Ahhh, my High School reunion (which I planned/ organized) is over. It went off well and I think everyone had a good time. Over 200 invitations went out and the day before the event we had 70 people coming but that night we still had 10 people pay at the door! (Why don't people RSVP anymore???) But it was an enjoyable evening and I am soooo glad it is over. Now they are talking about doing it at 35 years?!? Have fun! I am NOT planning that one! This was a LOT of work and I don't think anyone realizes how much work it was and how much of my time it took up.
In the meantime I found this clock and a thrift store. Sorry, took this mid- makeover. It had fruit stenciled all over the bottom part, which I used nail polish remover to remove. Then I used some watered down paint to paint over the bottom to "white wash" to match the top part. I painted the rest of it Folk Art Licorice Black and distressed. I love it. I really wanted to replace the one I had recently re-done but was only a temporary one. This one is much better and was more of what I was looking for. And it was only $2.00
I am much happier with this look! And now I even have a little lip/shelf to put things on... if I ever get any time to do that.
Have a great day!

Hi Marie! I'm glad the reunion was a big success. Someone once told me that planning a reunion is a lot like planning a weeding! It is a lot of work!
Love the clock! It turned out awesome!
Hope you have a happy day!

love the clock! i wish i had the patience to re-do stuff like that! perhaps i should try my hand at it one of these days!

it drives me bonkers that people don't RSVP! and a lot of people don't realize that it means YES or NO. so many people think that if they don't respond, you should assume it's a NO. i'm glad you had such a good turn out at your reunion! :)
