Doing the Happy Dance

Happy Weekend Girls! You remember how stressed I was about getting those horrible neighbors.Well Hubby said I heard the best news they aren't moving in.I didn't quit believe him,but yesterday they were supposed to sign the lease and start moving in.Instead the For Rent sign went back up.Yes I was doing the Happy Dance!!!! They apparently found another house.I'm just so happy it takes soooo much stress off.It'll probably be a while before they rent it because it's expensive for our small town.Plus with the road work not much traffic...Ok so the other day I told you about the old jug I made over.It has a chip on the bottom and no one bought it so I told hubby I make it over and see if it sells...
I actually modge podged the burlap on then wrapped it in string.while the modge podge was wet I rubbed some clove powder on it to make it grungy and it smells yummy.Well see if it sells taking it to market.Will charge $15 for it....Below is the butter churn I was going to keep but decided I really don't need it so it's going to market.It's smaller than most.If it don't sell I might reconsider keeping it.I keep looking at it and thinking I want it but then I look at the kitchen and think I really don't want to jam anything more in there.
And the dress form....Love these but no room...
Hubby found a beautiful large firkin and has asked me several times if I want it.I told him to go pack the load and stop tempting me to drag more stuff in.I have a really wonderful load for market.I just hope they appreciate it and aren't rude.(that's when I get tempted to hoard..LoL..) It makes me want to just drag it back and pack it away till I can find the person who will appreciate it.But truth be told I already have way to much stuff waiting...Well girls 3:30 am will be here before I know it so I'm off to read and hopefully get some  sleep.Warm Blessings!~Amy

Amy - I like the redo on your jug. I can't imagine being rude (I know they are though!) about the jug - I'd personally snap it up for $15.00 plus I'd be getting that churn too. Good luck with the market. ~Ann

I'm glad you won't be getting unruly neighbors. The jug looks nice and I would grab that churn in a heart beat if I were local.

Raymond Homestead said...

Oh Amy, I'm so happy you won't be getting those neighbors! That is great news! Love your jug makeover!

Marsha @ Tattered Chick said...

Your dressform is similiar to one I just got a couple of months ago. Mine's a little bit more worn but so am I LOL

As I'm a new follower I don't know the story behind the neighbors but am happy to hear they won't be moving in. We have a house for rent on the corner of our street and I'm stressing about who will be moving in. The people who own it just want money, they don't care who rents . . . . the house is a total eyesore but at least the people who were living there were quiet . . . now we wait and see

Great butter churn!!!!

Hi Amy, I have been thinking about you and the new neighbors.... glad to hear that they will not be moving in after all!!! I would be doing the happy dance, too!!

Love the crock re-do.... and $15 is a great price!! The butter churn and dress form are so nice, as well.... wonderful items.... I hope you do well at market.

Enjoy the weekend!!

Dorothy said...

So glad the neighbors aren't moving in - we have awful neighbors and I don't wish that on anyone! Love the jug $15 is too cheap - so I know you will sell it quick!
Good luck at the market

Terra said...

Nice news for you about the people not moving in. That butter churn is charming.

Cindi said...

Hope your day at the market is great! Awesome news about the neighbors not being neighbors! LOL

Be blessed,

TheCrankyCrow said...

OOOOOOO.....loving that butter churn Miss Amy....Sure you wanna part with it? (Yeah, aren't you glad I'm not your next door Girlfriend??? We'd be double trouble....) ;o) So glad that the neighbor situation worked out for you all....The old farmer who owned the properties next to us died about a year ago, and things they are a changing in these parts as well...and not for the better! Happy Sunday to you!!! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Love that butter churn! I am allergic to bad neighbors... I finally am living in the middle of farmland and my neighbors now are wildlife! I am glad you will avoid the annoyance at least for the time being.


cynthia lee designs said...

Love the makeover you did on the jug...very prim and cute!!
So glad to hear that those people did not move in.
Hope you have a great time at the market.

Theresa said...

What great news Amy!!! Glad you won't have to be stressed out every time you leave your house now. Love the dressform... I have one with my wedding dress on it.

Primitive Stars said...

Hello Amy, that such great news about not getting those neighbors. Love the old butter churn, so prim. You did a wonderful job on the little jug,way to go. Enjoy the Day,Blessings Francine.

Holly said...

So glad your neighbor situation worked out! I know that's a relief. Love your redo! Very clever idea! I think I would have to keep the churn. Good luck with your market!

Shannon DeMasi said...

The jug looks great! I would think it would sell easily.

That's also great news about the house next door. There's not much worse than having difficult and unpleasant neighbors to deal with.

Love the crock redo. Hopefully it will sell for you at the market. I still need to make a trip up one of these weekends and I'd better get to it before it gets too ungodly hot...will have to convince hubby to go....guess I'd better start working on him! Lol!


jody said...

amy, thanx for stopping by! im so glad you arent getting those weird people next door! i have a rental house next door and have great neighbors right now.. but not always like that! love your treasures and me too i have a hard time parting with things but cant get much else in here.. im thankful to have the shop to sell things if i choose! enjoy your day

Kendra said...

My mom had a dress form just like that when I was growing up. I remember she kept it for a long time after she quit sewing but until then she kept it in my room...scary, but I do wish I had it now!

So glad to hear about the neighbors...or rather non-neighbors. I have been praying, praying, praying about it but I will continue to pray that you get good neighbors when the time comes.
