A little update!

Hi, friends. I have been a little MIA since last Thursday. First, I was chosen for jury duty, but the trail only lasted for one day! Dare I say jury duty was actually a little interesting, and I enjoyed it. Having to serve for only one afternoon might be part of the reason, but needless to say, it wasn't all that bad.

Since Friday I've been helping out the sweet people at The Royal Standard run their showroom at The Mart downtown. I've only shopped in the jewelry building before at AmericasMart, so working in the housewares mart has been a whole new experience for me. There are adorable Christmas decorations, tufted headboards, tables, chairs and antiques at every turn- for only a fraction of the retail price. Seriously - it has changed the way I will look at items in department stores. You can buy the buttoned tufted headboard (queen size; 6 feet tall) for only $250. "Merry Christmas, Y'all" fingertip towels are only $3. Huge, beautiful antique mirrors are $108! I am like a kid in a candy store. It's been a fun experience, but the summer show is over on Wednesday. Too bad I'll probably spend all the money I made these last few days and won't be taking anything but fingertip towels and cheese boards and Christmas reindeer statues home with me. What's a girl to do?!

Thanks again for all of you that follow my blog and check in to see what I post everyday. Over 100 followers! I heart you guys, hard. I am so flattered and happy - thank you.
