Let me tell you about my day...

On Sunday, DH and I went to the last auction of the year in the city and found some great finds.

I got this white turkey stoneware...

and the this turkey gravy boat!

This very bright red chair for my office (it's super comfortable) and I want to recover it this spring and paint the wood my favorite color of white!

And I got this vintage typewriter to go with the picture I got a Goodwill!!

But my best find was this sewing machine - for $3! And it works! And I don't really know how to sew! But hey, I got a sewing machine and I dreaming of all kinds of projects!

Today I went to Michael's and got the supplies to make these cute candy canes!

And I think I'm going to have to order this sandman in a can kit that I saw on Completely Coastal.

And I love eggnog and found this recipe for eggnog bread...
(Sorry but I can't remember where I found the recipe.)

And today I left work early for a dentist appt, just a teeth cleaning and I had to wait 45 minutes! I am not a patient person and I let them know I was not happy. My hygentist likes to talk and she can't talk and work at the same time and she is always running late - but today was incredible! The receptionist gave me a $25 gift card to a pizza place and said she was sorry for my wait.
On a better note, tomorrow at work, we're having an ugly Christmas sweater contest with another department that we cross trained with. The losing team has to bring goodies to the winning team next Friday... Should be a lot of fun and probably not a very productive day!

Working sewing machine for $3 - you really did good. The egg nog bread looks and sounds so good. Yes - those long waits can get aggravating - nice they compensated a little bit.
