I have been BOO'ed, and Random home Rantings...

I have been "Boo'ed" by the darling Mrs.B!! The Blogging Boo works like this... Go to as many friends as you want and tell them they've been "Boo-ed". Have them link back to your blog to pick up their Halloween Treat (the cute picture), and tell them to "Boo" their friends. Then, put the picture in your side bar so everyone knows that you've already been "Boo-ed" and to send the pic to someone else.

Ready,.... set,.... BOO!

Sorry, lots of really blurry pics today.
I was semi productive today. I made a trip to Home Depot to pick up construction gloves, flashlights, and 'Museum putty' for my earthquake kits. (Feeling a little bit of 'dooms day' paranoia lately. I suppose it's good for me because it forces me into action.) Is is sad when the highlight of your kids day is a ride in a shopping cart? Although it was a very cool shopping cart. The only problem with being productive is that a trip to Home Depot always leaves me with decisions. We are going to paint our stairwell from the first story to the second story just to clean it up and brighten it up. So, do I just go with a creamy neutral like these, or do I want more color like the rest of my house? I am sooo open for suggestions.

I did find a cute knob for only a few dollars, which made me smile, and I will tell you why. I acquired this 2nd hand dresser about 8 years ago. I liked it because the drawers were shallow and perfect to store flat canvases, watercolor paper, paints, and brushes. It was ugly white laminate junk, and it was peeling. I took a utility knife and eventually got all of the laminate off. (This is when the husbands 'utility/ exacto knife ban' came into effect, because I suffered numerous injuries...battle wounds :)! ) I wood burned a design into the raw particle board and painted it with watered down acrylic. I have had it all these years and dubbed it my crazy art dresser. So back to the knob...I have a plethora of mismatched knobs on this dresser, which is one of my favorite things about it. Through the years my tastes have changed and some of the knobs have really taken a beating so I am always on the look out for replacements. In a time of extreme economic crisis, how does one justify spending unheard of dollar amounts on a knob??

(these literally ranged in price from $10.78-$34.50)

WOWZERS!! I don't justify it. I loved them all,...I wanted them all,...but lets be prudent right? Which is why I was excited to find one I was pleased with for $2-ish . What fun would I have if my knob hunt were over anyway??!

Holly, I LOVE the dresser; I love the fact that all the knobs are different.
And I am sure the kids enjoyed the shopping cart ride; anything they can do while spending the time with you is for sure the highlight of their day.;)
