Lest you think the Animal Print business has kept Gadora from scouring the streets of Austin for goodies, think again folks! While I’m happily, superbly, unbelievably busy with the Animal Prints (DAILYCANDY you ARE totally my new BFF), I have one eye on the workshop with its growing reminder of things wanting attention…

Remember that “tie-one-on” post? Let me refresh you… and as luck would have it, some nice folks placed this chair on their sidewalk just for Gadora!!! I’m gathering my ties, all in a similar color scheme, and plan to pick my seat (teehee), then make it happen.
Found two killer lamps (not even needing restringing) at an estate sale. Unfortunately, the family of 27 children who hit the sale moments prior to my arrival liked this lamp too, and tore into the shade. No worries people, Gadora and her muse have some CLEAR plans for this one!
Need to do some research on this lamp base and I kind of want to nibble the flowers. It channels glamour-puss and fancy-pants at the same time, and may be a keeper.
The BFF dragged home this side table. Have I said how much I love that woman? Always on the look-out for me, and quite the publicist! Still waiting for the table to talk… but it will.
Allow me an aside here, I’d just finished ROLO’s Animal Print — who you all know I LURV MUCHO — and “Chihuahua” was on the brain. The BFF and I were heading South and I spied half of a posted cardboard sign… CHI… >> SALE. “OMG! We’re SOOOO adopting a pup TODAY!,” I screamed. We headed >> that way. Only to find, I’d read the sign wrong and as such, the CHURCH SALE yielded this… While it doesn’t look like much now, you have faith.
Another lamp. Needs rewiring, but that’s a cinch. I’m still waiting for it’s reincarnation wish to reveal itself to me. Currently über foo-foo, I’m thinking it needs a manly metal make-over.
And she saves the best for last. We happened upon the closing-hour of another Church sale South of town. We’d plundered through the books and jewels about the time a lady said, “all you can fit in that box…ONE DOLLAR” (It’s amazing how interesting some of the books suddenly became). On our way out, we spied a set of furniture dying to be separated and after a small bidding war with another few gals, Gadora prevailed!
So that’s it folks. I’ve got a few more Animal Prints to keep me busy, then I’m outta here… and out there in the Shop, if you need me.
