This giveaway is now closed.Hello Friends!
Did you have a wonderful weekend? What did you do?
I so needed a fun weekend. February is the worst time of the year at work. We file more than 15,000 group applications with the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation on February 28. A great deal of work and time goes into this process.
The analytical staff works long hours during the last two weeks with this upcoming week being UN-affectionately dubbed Hell Week. I probably won't be visiting much this week because once I get home, I normally go straight to bed with or without eating. Any positive thoughts and energy you can send my way this week will be most appreciated.
You may recall a couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that Ree Drummond, aka Pioneer Woman, would be visiting Columbus for a book signing. A group of Buckeye Bloggers got together to attend.
No respectable blogger outing would be complete without some shopping. So we started the day off early with a trip to Scott's Antique Market at the Ohio State Fairgrounds.
One of the first things we happened upon were these creepy doll molds. They were very unique, but really unsettling to me. I suppose a doll collector would love them.
Check out these flamboyant lamps. How fun are these? Would I have a home for them in my house? No, but they sure are fun.
Speaking of fun...how fun is this little guy? Check out his happy little face. He was already sold so I don't know what the going price was.
You KNOW this booth caught my eye. I had to be patient here, because this display was attracting many shoppers. Yes, I bought something. You will see it soon; I promise.There were many sets of china available, but the prices were pretty steep. I loved the pattern below, but I would need two more jobs to afford it. Isn't it pretty?
|I LOVE IT!|
It was a long wait. Unfortunately, Lori and Cindy had to leave to take care of their families. Sue and I finally got to meet Ree just before 6:00. She was well worth the wait for me. She was delightful and engaging. She made eye contact when she spoke and didn't at all rush us. She was genuine, sweet, and funny.
When you got to the front of the line, a Barnes & Noble employee took your camera and took pictures while you were with Ree. The first picture I am going to share is poor quality, but I wanted to show you how engaged she was when I spoke with her.
Ree signed three books for me. She signed a copy of Black Heels to Tractor Wheels and two copies Pioneer Woman Cooks. What am I going to do with two signed copies of Pioneer Woman Cooks? Hmmm...
