Never say I haven't suffered for my art. Yesterday morning I was bouncing around ignoring unschooling Joseph and Jake and the Neverland Pirates addict Isaac, setting up a photo shoot for Theme Thursday: Store, and getting more and more frustrated that I stink at this stuff, and I still haven't gotten my nice camera fixed, when it happened.
|Seriously, this is the best pic I got, and excuse the sailor language over here|
on the Web Log, but wth is up with that pine cone photo bomb?
Why exactly did I think this display needed more texture/distraction?
Well, the theme is store, and come on, this weekend I went to look at Goodwill for dishes, because I'm such a klutz I have once again broken almost all of them, (really, me and me alone, almost all of them) when I found this beautiful set, actually from Williams and Sonoma, and made in Portugal, and would honestly have cost between $300-$400, for only:
For the whole set! But that's not all, folks, it was half price day! Seriously, how often do you go to Goodwill on a whim, looking specifically for something, find a far better item than you ever, ever could have wished for, and find it's half price!
I think I was feeling a little too lucky, a little too confident, and a little too frustrated that I take such dumb pictures of beautiful things.
So I was walking past Joseph and spilled my coffee, because I always do. And walking past him again to get a rag, I decided to give him a little tickle, because I always do, but my foot fell right onto the spilled coffee, and my head hit the actual floor. Right on my geek glasses.
And there was lots and lots of blood and gore. The kind gentleman who stitched me up (12 tiny plastic surgeon stitches)said I hit an artery, and the dern glasses went all the way to the bone.
I blame Donaldson and her far fetched themes.
Anyway, come on over for a nice cup of Joe in a beautiful, half priced Goodwill cup. I'm great company!
