Paper Dolls and Gypsy Treasures

We both took a half day from work and found ourselves at Kobey's Swap Meet and it was my favorite kind of swap meet day. No crowds, no big-commercial booths, and lots of treasures. My arms ached by the end of our thirty minute trip there, because we found so many gems in the rough. Including an underwater camera for Doug's mom that I am going to test out on Sunday at the pool! We also found a lot of neat treasures for the shop.

Also, while I was a at work today, I was thinking about painting. weird, right. I was dipping cookies in royal icing, and piping cake, and all I wanted to do was paint. Sometimes the urge gets me. Trust me though, my painting style is that of a pre-teen girl, but I enjoy doing it.

I started making paper doll images of Doug and I. I know it's silly, but it was fun and turned out pretty cute. I'm going to get it framed and hang it in our bedroom.
Do you ever feel like drawing something silly? Or just being silly?? Tonight is going to be full of silliness, because once my man gets home from skateboarding, we're having a pizza party and watching movies in our pj's! I may even build a fort, who knows! I feel like celebrating, I have had so many opportunities to break the soda-fast, but haven't. The headaches have subsided and I am feeling great! Why didn't I do this sooner? Who knows...but I feel great now. I'm not saying I won't ever drink soda again, it just won't be my only option and may get saved for really special occasions!

I have a bunch of new gems I am currently updating the shop with, so if you'd like, check them out! I have a curiosities closet planned for later tonight, and a new feature this weekend. I still need to get caught up with Spring into Summer with my blogger bff, Danielle. I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far (it's only Friday!!) and although I have to work tomorrow and probably late since I left early today, I am excited for my day off on Sunday. Doug leaves on Tuesday for a week long bachelor party with his friends, so I am going to kidnap him Sunday for a fun day.
