Is a fave day for me. While my cleaning lady cleans, the Hub and I retire to my studio. I have a nice little sitting area for him and a television, and as he watches the Today show, I putz. (Today, I made a big dent in cleaning up my craft table. Yay, me!) Once Maria's gone and while the Hub plays poker with some of the neighbors, I have a whole, clean house to myself!

Today, I put up newspaper blanks for some pictures I'll be hanging after I pick up the proper hanging paraphernalia. And I finished a handbag I've been working on for quite some time.
 And I cut out a tea cozy for a gift.
I ordered this from Goodwill online as part of the gift. It's a vintage Merit China Occupied Japan teacup and saucer set. Pretty cool, innit?

I did a bit of rearranging in my guest bath, substituting this:
 for this:
 (I know it's crooked. I stuck it back on so I could show it here.)

And laying this on the floor in front of the sink:
The light was pretty bad in there, but how cool is that? Daisy made it for me a couple of years back with the express order to use it in my studio. Only recently has she allowed me to bring it into the house. It's wonderful underfoot! (Thanks, Daisy!)

Well, the Hub just got home. Have no idea if he won or lost but we picked up Chinese takeout yesterday so at least I don't have to cook this evening.

Ta, yall.

Can your cleaning lady come to my house? My chiropractor actually told me it would be cheaper to hire a cleaning lady than to keep coming to see him all the time.
