Cars, Decoupage, and Floats OH MY!

I had a couple days off of work so Eric and I have been busy running errands, getting him ready for LutherHaven and just having some much needed and deserved relaxation.
I wanted to get my crafting bug under control so after a shopping trip to Joann's Fabric I had all I need to get started on my Decoupage project I've been lusting after. Gracie was obviously so ready to help me accomplish anything... or not.
After some cutting and pasting here's the finished project in all it's "Wizard of Oz" glory. The "Wizard of Oz" also hit it's 71st anniversary this week, which makes me happy! Decoupage by the way is totally a "Something New" craft for me... Giddy Giddy!
Friday afternoon we went to a little Mexican market near our house, and found delicious breads! Later in the evening Lee and Jess came over and we went out to eat at El Sabor De Oaxaca! Lee, Jess and Eric all wanted to go see "Inception" but I really had no inclination to see the movie in theaters whatsoever. Halfway through dinner our neighbor Jack called us to tell us that his Grandson wanted to buy our Focus to rebuild. He has all the talent and parts to do it, so we were happy to sign over the title to him this morning. We sold it for mere peanuts, but we're glad that someone could find use of it, it was just sitting in our parking lot taking up valueable space.
I wasn't as emotional getting rid of this car as I was the aspire, though we did go on our Honeymoon in our Focus, so it brought back some good memories to think about it!
We then paid attention to our FIT by giving it a bath, headed to the grocery store, ate dinner and then enjoyed some Rootbeer Floats to try to beat the 96 degree heat! (Disgusting).
It was a good weekend, I feel well rested and relaxed for the first time in awhile.
