As I hinted at this weekend, I was a Captain Distracto. In lieu of marking on Friday, I went to an antique show. In lieu of marking Saturday afternoon, I went for a long walk with a friend, then took her grocery shopping for heavy stuff (she is car-less). But, Saturday night and Sunday morning I put pen to paper & got my marking done! (Not that there won’t be more headed my way . . . )
So, I did work on a painting. But I ran out of white paint and, all grubby & covered in paint, I just threw in the towel. I’ll buy some paint soon, and I’ll work on it again next weekend. But, here’s a sneak peak:

Below are some photos of the two goodies I bought at the antique show. (And, a tip: if you’re headed to an antique show with an entrance fee, check out the website. I signed up for the newsletter via email and received a discounted admission). Another McCoy planter:
Here are the photos I promised of the whole collection, stored in our much loved Ikea Besta wall unit (modular units are swell for small spaces – if it fits perfectly, it makes every inch count!):
|Super hard to take a photo of it – our living room is NOT really wide . . .|
My second antique show find was a pair of Majorica (a manufactured replica of cultured) “pearl” earrings. The size and setting is so gorgeous, I don’t even care if they are manufactured.

How was your weekend?
