Kicking Off Another Week

My son and I were going to check out an apartment in Eugene today. He was all prepared to give them a deposit, etc. The pictures on-line were amazing: new cabinetry/appliances, crown molding, painted pressed tin ceiling, new carpet, new bathroom fixtures. He would be the first renter to live in it. However, we cancelled the trip after talking to the property manager. The apartment was a studio in a newly renovated, turn-of-the-century home 4 blocks from downtown. Sounded perfect. He could bike or walk to work. The thing that put the kabosh on it was it's size. They were asking $550.00 a month for 150 square feet!!! It's not a typo -- and I asked several times - 1 - 5 -- 0 square feet. That's just slightly bigger than the pop-up tent I use at antiques shows! Needless to say, he will continue to look. Yikes! What are they thinkin'?!?

I spent most of yesterday in my workroom and knocked out a few little friends for you to enjoy. These and other creations will be at Flourishes at Mount Pleasant on March 15th! My friends
Joy, Cindy, and Lisa will be a Expo this weekend. If you're planning to attend, be sure to stop at their booths and check out all their wonderful treasures! M.
