It's been a pretty quiet hurricane season for us here in Florida so far this year but we're only about mid season now. Tropical storm Isaac is headed our way and forecast to be a strong category 1 hurricane, possibly a category 2 before it reaches my area. Here's where we stand as of the latest update...
This morning I did my grocery shopping including hurricane stock up on extra water, batteries, etc. I made it just before the shelves were empty. People get crazy in the stores when there is a hurricane on the way!
Unfortunately, because of my early shopping/preparation there were no junkin' adventures for me today. With the bad weather on the way I don't see any treasure hunting adventures happening at all this weekend. Not to worry, I did get a really wonderful treasure anyway. A gift...
Isn't it awesome? I love it so much! I've always had a thing for old trunks, but never dreamed I'd own one like this. I can't wait to get it cleaned up. What do you think, gorgeous isn't it?
My husband was doing a tile job for a friend of the family when he spotted this in the garage. He casually mentioned how beautiful it was and how much I would love it. When he went back out to his truck at the end of the day the trunk was in the back - a gift for me!
I hope you are having a great weekend. They've already closed schools here for Monday so it's a 3 day weekend for us. Let the hurricane party begin - cheers!
