Two of Two for Tuesday – The Calm Before the Storm

Posted in Main, two for tuesday at 10:18 pm by carrie

It’s that time of year again! Dust off your pup tents and head on over to best buy to sleep on the sidewalk for a day or two!

Wait… you don’t do that?

Last year I did all my shopping from my computer… mostly Amazon.com, but it was SO much easier than the mad shuffle into those stores on that Friday that shall not be named.

In the Violet Cottage realm, I’m planning on some pretty deep discounts for Friday, Saturday and Sunday on the website and over at ebay… I’ll post the details on Thursday.

I’ll leave you with these quiet shots from our local Anthro & Pottery barn…
some flowers I almost purchased (I want to draw them!) and Meg playing tug-of-war with a lobster and a puppy (this is Jacques Cousteau stuff!)!

p.s… if you are a child of the mid-70’s you might remember this… in the grocery store they would have fresh flowers and cover them in fat silver or gold glitter (for some reason). I would fondle those flowers for as long as I could to get covered in the glitter. “oops, I’ve covered myself in the glitter that just happened to fall off”. I felt guilty for decades after, shoplifting gobs of glitter from Ralph’s. Anyone else… the glitter bandit… ?

p.s.s… cut to 2010… a 7lb turkey breast, 30 lbs of potatoes (I exaggerate), two pies, a bag of mini marshmallows, some bread, butter, herbs and produce = $197. Really? Next year it’s hungry man (WITH that brownie… ‘cuz it’s fancy) and stove top!

p.s.s.s… Oh google…

    Well, I promise to eat the hell out of that turkey!

    Seriously though, that much? damn. I’ll bring the wine!
