I'm Back!!...







Although you didn't know I was gone! Decided telling the blogging world at large that I would not be home for 5 days was like good advertising gone bad :O}! Every year my boss, Carol and I go on a buying spree at a Fraternity/Sorority show called The Spirit Show. Each year it's held in a different city, and we usually try to go at least a day ahead so we can play tourist and have some fun. This year we had 5 glorious sun filled days in....no...you guess where I was. :O} We had a ball, ate way too much, walked on the beach, ordered like there is no recession {is that over yet?} and just had too much fun...nah...no such thing! As much as I enjoyed the trip, it's always good to come home...although on Sunday morning I was whining about having to go to the airport....I did not want to leave the ocean! Told my boss I'm going to be a beach bum when I grow up...she just smiled and said "I'm not going to support you"... darn...another dream shot full'o holes! Hope you all have a great week...staying cool? We had a heat index of 107 yesterday!!! And it's only the middle of June...bye bye low electric bill :O{ *elaine* So.....where was I? Any guesses?

Looks like someplace in the Hawaiian islands to me. Wherever it was, I'm like Gail, very envious.

Thanks for the info about cleaning the chandy...I wonder if hubby will hold it while I clean it?! LOL
I'm thinking you went to Maine or around that area. I LOVE the ocean also and would love to spend my days walking on the beach. DREAMS are good.
Warmly,
Deb :)

Morning all...2 guesses so far, but neither is correct. The ocean has always been in my veins, and when I can get paid to walk on the beach, it's even sweeter!! :O} *e*

elaine,

you asked about hanging the door. If you check out my blog post on my door repurposed into a headboard (last summer) you'll see that I put it on legs. I didn't want to hang it on that silly tongue and groove wall(knotty pine)
although if you want to hang it, you would use a cleat system.
take a 1x 6 or a 1x8, rip it down the middle on an angle (45?), Then install one piece on the wall, the other on the headboard. Then basically you would be joining the 1x back together. make sense? I hope so! I should have answered that on my recent comments & questions, but I felt too bad last night. I missed some comments.

I haven't read the comments yet, so this may be already solved. I'm saying Virginia Beach. Glad you got to have some get-away time, it looks lovely.
