blink and it's gone

things i did this weekend:
  1. painted my nails
  2. did some more work on my naked slipper chair. i lubricated the springs so that they weren't squeaky anymore, stapled on the foam and batting, and now all that's left to do is to put the on the fabric. once it's all done, i'll post a slew of photos along with a complete how-to. (please keep in mind that i don't claim to be the alpha and omega of furniture upholstery; i just happened upon a sweet lil chair that i couldn't let pass me by without trying my hand at a new project.)
  3. lent a hand doing some demolition work in my sisters bedroom, where she's installing some sweet sweet laminate floors. it's just the perfect colour that suits her 'signature' colours - i can see her finishing off her room with creamy whites, dusty pinks and chocolate browns. my specific job was to rip up the wood-and-nails combo that goes along the perimeter of the room to keep the carpet down (or something). after that, i swept up some dust and the boys took over the actual laying of the floors. great job, boys. (before and after pictures to come once the room's re-assembled!)
  4. received some sweet lil cinnamon bears from marta. they're every bit as delicious as she promised they'd be, and helped sustain our lil construction team throughout the course of the weekend!
  5. learned how to curl my hair with my flatiron.
  6. shopping with my sister - got a sweet lil black jacket from h&m. very pleased. goes well with the above-mentioned painted nails.
what fun things did you get up to?

sounds like such a great weekend! i spent mine going to flea markets, cleaning a newly acquired letterpress tray, picking roadside flowers and drinking too much red wine. not so bad either, though decidedly less productive than yours!

Please post a tutorial about how to curl hair with the flat iron!

Sounds like a great weekend.

I went camping with Hubby and some of his family. It was AWESOME! A book, a nap in the afternoon, a hike...I feel rested. Well, mostly.

Glad you had a great weekend! I need to paint my nails...

Oh my god. You are so productive that it makes me feel tired. I didn't get nearly this much done, but I did manage to watch several bad movies on HBO while sewing.
