10 more days...

 We are working hard over here to get things done for the big reception...I've been planting all sorts of little containers with succulents...these are some of the buckets that Don painted white for me...these will be on the tables...
 Lots of little glass candle holders...found a lot at yard sales and also at Hobby Lobby for 50% off...which made them all about 50 cents a piece...yard sales ones were 25 cents each...these will all be filled with votives and tea lights...
 Don has been busy spraying the picture frames gold...we have a bunch more to paint...now I need to get to Target and print all the pictures ...still so much to do!
 These are going to be filled with candles as well...there will be candles everywhere...that's what they want...we aim to please! Luckily I found all these on clearance...
 This one was hard to get a picture of...it looks better live...it's gold tulle...with glitter in it...very sparkly in the  lights...it will go over the white table cloths...I haven't quite figured it out yet...just in my mind...I bought 17 yards of it though...with my 50% coupon from Joanns...It will add a bit of bling I think...I hope so anyways!!
 Other things I have been doing...besides gardening and getting things ready is sewing...I do have craft fairs coming up...gotta get that inventory ready...
So half of my days are spent sewing...its been really crazy busy...it seems like we don't have time to take a breath...I will be so ready for my vacation in October...I'm ready now!!! But just 10 days left...did I mention that Don and I have also been scrubbing walls and floors and trying to get the inside as nice as possible too...I am so thankful I have him by my side...he is such a trooper...he just basically does what I ask him to do...what a guy!! 
I haven't even mentioned the horrible weather we've been having ...not very normal for our area...the heat...yes...but humidity...no...and its been really bad. It looks like its going to rain everyday...but all we get is a drop or two...I feel sticky the whole time I'm outside gardening...it is really yucky! Even my plants aren't sure how to handle this...some of them have just given up...I lost 5 azaleas this summer...they just died...without warning...just gave up...and then there's those that are blooming at weird times...I have camellias blooming ...now that's really weird...or those that just won't bloom at all...too hot I suppose!
And its supposed to heat up 15 degrees this week...holy moly! Now Don just came home and told me the A/C in his SUV isn't working...oh well...I guess we're off to take the car in...
Until next time...enjoy your day!!!
