here's the rest of the loot i got at michaels...glass bottles and the shabby chic frame. it was less than $3. what a bargain! also the fab clock on my mantle. some pics of my dining "room". actually it's an area of the living room. i recovered my dining room chairs a few years ago with waverly fabric. a find on ebay. i still have about a yard left. i'd love to do something with it but i do not sew. any suggestions?

i've been a blog slacker lately. on sunday the bf and i went to a park in nyack. if you're not from around here, nyack is a town in ny state on the hudson river. we had a picnic..well it was sandwiches from subway and pringles from walmart. hey it was food, right? there are picnic tables right along the water's edge and it's just so peaceful staring out at the water. the water was pretty choppy and there were only like two boats out there. as you can see cali scored a new ball from walmart. FYI super sale at Michaels. i went yesterday and bought a clock for $2.49 and glass bottles for .49 cents each! can you believe it? i'll post pics of those another day. i haven't taken the pics yet. i meant to go back today but i never made it there. i'm guessing the sale ends on sat so i'll probably go back before then. i know i'm all over the place with this post but i'm trying to get in different stuff. also was out with my friend and her son the other day and we saw a mommy deer and her two babies. i was able to get in a quick pic while we slowed down but of course there were cars behind us.

i had this tv cabinet in my guest room and never really liked it. it was a hand me down. it just hit me a couple of weeks ago that i should paint it. so i started last night. the white "paint" is actually kilz primer and the inside greenish color is leftover paint that i used in my kitchen a few years ago. i want to change the knobs. i was at home depot yesterday but they really didn't have anything that i liked. any suggestions as to where i could buy knobs, aside from expensive anthropologie?
