Well, that doesn’t tell you much about what I did last night, does it? I’ll explain. Everyone who’s ever driven between Cameron and Temple will have noticed a couple of very cute shops in Rogers, Texas. One of them, the Vis-a-Vis Galleria drew me and my sister in a few weeks ago. I discovered that, not only do they have fun clothing and a really tasteful collection of consignment items, they do classes on decorating furniture.
So, I signed up for a class, just to have some fun on a random weekend. I’d hoped to get someone to go with me, but I was fine with going alone. Since I’ve been channeling my dad, I’ve gotten better about being friendly with everyone I run into. It turns out that everyone has an interesting story, somewhere in there!
The classes are mostly around this brand of decorative rub-on transfers, stamps, and molds by a company called Iron Orchard Designs. They are definitely for a certain type of taste, but I find them quite charming.
So, I showed up last night, and got to hang out with Pat, the owner, two classmates who were her friends, and Path’s husband, Mike. Mike did all the drilling of holes for us. Apparently, he repurposes furniture for his job, so he knows this stuff.
We drank wine, rubbed our transfers on white boards, sealed them up, and got cute little hooks on them. Of course I had to have birds. I had lots of fun talking to everyone, and I know I can use the finished product at The Hermit Haus somewhere. I hope to buy some really pretty roses they sell, and I just might paint my little secretary desk and embellish it.
We’ll see. I sure have a lot of websites to maintain and businesses to work on right now…when will I do hobbies?
