~*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!

~* it's a giveaway *~

Isn't this cute? Lori at theblackcrow is having a giveaway! She is giving these adorable fall goodies away to her followers. I haven't entered a giveaway in a while and this one is worth it... so head on over and give it a shot.
Sorry this is such a short post this evening, but I have a bit of a head ache this tonight. I helped my friend recover her chair pads today, and I didn't get much sleep last night... so I going to make it an early one.
Have a great day!
