Our Winter Valance

We've had this apple valance for a while now
It's the one we put up for the winter after the
Christmas one comes down.
Like all our other valances it was designed by 
Sam's coworker friend Eden.
Sam and I found the fabric at Walmart,
it came in three different apple patterns.
Eden also made pillows for the window bench,
check out the cool little
apple basket buttons.
 
She also created a table runner for the buffet.
We found the apple cookie jar at Mervin's.
I found the mouth watering chocolate cake, 
cake safe at Marshall's.
Up on the hutch we find a new  
salt and pepper set from Fitz and Floyd.
I saw the set on Ebay and it reminded me
of The Cracker Barrel restaurant with its 
country rocking chairs and barrels.
Sam won it for my birthday.
We also have a great little apple wreath 
above the hutch.
We found it at Michael's and added the 
blue checked ribbon to match the valance.
Here on the table, are Eden's double sided place mats. 
The table is full of my cover letters and resum├ęs.
I lost my tee shirt job this January when the shop
was closed, sold and moved.  
The new owner didn't want an in-house artist.
Know anyone who needs a Corel Draw artist?
The day after I lost my job was my birthday!
Sam treated me to a "Despicable Me" 
Minions cake to cheer me up! 
 It did!
 Elvis and I both got a hair cut this month.
Mines for job interviews.
Thanks for stopping by
and happy hunting!

I didn't know you lost your job! Been there...done that. I hope you find something wonderful soon. Are there lots of design jobs in Vegas? I hope you find something you like better.
