"If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." — E.B. White

Lucketts! (& HELP needed)

* Must start this post by saying  I AM officially crazy now. ;-0
Having the worst time getting tons of FUN pics to load!!!
They go up to Picassa w/much trouble but are stuck there...
Drafted this post quickly yesterday but have wasted way too much time trying to figure out if I have a problem ?virus w/Google.
Maybe it's also the weak connection on our air card?
May hit Best Buy for a new laptop today.   sigh
Anyone w/any ideas, please feel free to leave a comment. They are truly needed and appreciated! I've been blogging for just over a month and clearly haven't learned a thing!
Sorry for the distraction from the real story... Lucketts!!!

Whoeeeeee, we went, we shopped, we ate!
Lucketts was CRAZY busy. Were you there?

We parked at the cool iron n art place and bought a crazy chicken, metal flower and mini red etager of sorts...

Then we walked accross the street to Lucketts Store and the Bee Keeper's Cottage...
It was soo packed we couldn't even get in the door!

Between all the shops n vendors, there was anything you could want;

Censational shelters n sheds!

Chic, but not cheap...

Nice n neutral... Beautiful burlap covered chair!

Crazy colorful crowns & chandelier!

We MET Miss Mustard Seed!!! She's sooooo awesome and REAL! She even has an adorable n charming Dad! Her gorgeous creations were being snapped up as I watched, everyone LOVED her stuff!

My little buddy was on her best behavior... So long as she got her time in the play area, she was a happy monkey. She didn't get anything, but she did lose something - a TOOTH!

Here's a bit of my loot. I bought a large vintage floral , even tho I have too many already, because it's colors and wooden frame might match my leather sofa better - and it was cheap! I set the red etager on my counter for pens n notes n assorted clutter to pile up... The metal picnic basket will go to the barn for my tackroom. It'll match my monogrammed horse blankets and store medicines.
* what the heck happened to this sorry quality pic?!

You'll have to wait to see my crazy metal chicken n flower 'til I reveal my coop - which still needs a bit of tweaking to be "blog-worthy!"  ;-)

I couldn't find your email to reply to the sweet comment you left on my blog regarding Garden Grief Relief. Thank you for your kind words and I am sorry on the loss of your dad last year. I assume things will get better but I can't see it yet.

I love your pictures of the day! It was such a pleasure getting to meet you and your daughter. I'm waiting to see the adorable kids rooms you told me about. Come on...we wanna see. :)

I didn't get to tell you this, but I am a big fan of horses as well. I rode English with my cousin (who's a horse trainer and owned a riding school) for years and loved it. It's my dream to live on a small farm one day and maybe own a couple of horses. Just one more thing we have in common.

Miss Mustard Seed said...

You're in my post today. Just wanted to let you know...

Miss Mustard Seed said...

I will barter with you for cool things in your barn. Seriously! Hope your computer woes get solved. Best Buy is the absolute worst when it comes to customer service.

Farm Fresh Fun... indeed! I feel right at home here. And I see you have on a *gingham*check*top.... my very fave (I just bought another.. lol)! Thanks for the sweet visit. I'll be back soon :) -Tammy
