Wallpaper and Scrolly Jewelry

December 4, 2012

OK, so prepping walls and hanging paper, I can get pretty grungy by the end of the day. My usual outfit is shorts and a T-shirt.

But, gee, the Wallpaper Lady wants to look a LITTLE girly. Check out one of the new earrings I got at the Renaissance Festival this year. Big enough to see, but small enough to keep out of the way, pretty, but plain enough to work with shorts and a T-shirt.

So the other day I was putting on a hairband (seen at left), to keep the blonde mop out of my eyes, and – TUG TUG TUG!! The thin hairband had gotten itself looped around the swirl of one of my new earrings. It was in there tight, too! What happened in a split second sure got securely tangled. I had to take both of them off, to get them unscrambled.

The Well-Traveled Paperhanger

August 14, 2012

I do my wallpaper bids on Sunday afternoons. This works out well for me, because I’m not up on my ladder hanging paper. And it works out well for my clients, because, while Saturday is generally Errand and Chore Day, most people are around the house on Sunday afternoon.

Here’s how my day went yesterday:

Heights, Sping Branch, Memorial & Dairy Ashford, Katy, Sugarland, Pearland, Clear Lake. Whew!

I put 171 miles on my van (at 13 mpg), and was on the road from 10:00 am until 7:00 pm.

It sure felt good to get back home and put my feet up – watched the movie “Cool Running,” about the Jamacian Bob Sled Team in the Olympics. Good flick.
