Moulin Rouge & the Uninvited Guest

This is what your place looks like when you spend a few days getting ready for Moulin Rouge, four days crafting, eating, shopping and having fun…..and then get sick the day after you get home. 

You are then in bed for 3 and a half days. 

Unable to unpack your wonderful things that you bought, were given and swapped.  (and dirty clothes)


Moaning, coughing and being hot then cold. 

Your things strewn about ~ both the items that didn't make the cut and the things that went & came back.  Now stacked ALL over. 

My dinner there in the red coffee cup…chicken noodle soup & seven up.  My first full day back to work was today.  You see I am the bookkeeper and no one else can do my job but me….so it waits for me to come back. 

Piles of it. 

HA…just like the piles at home waiting for me.


There's the mail and the note I TAPED to the door so the man child could remember a couple things. 

And a cool basket that I got at the Long Beach Flea Market…..that we attended for …well…..a blink of an eye because of the rain storm.


Unfinished class projects and swaps…all waiting for me when I feel better. DSC06022


Oh….and my studio..a mess too!!


And a naked girl…..she was wearing my can can girl outfit. 


BUT…..I'm feeling much better.  Until I look around me.  I'm just glad I didn't get sick until I got home.  Guess you know what I'm doing this weekend…..well at least Saturday. 

I signed up for Denise Hahn's birdcage class Sunday…..makes me feel better just thinking about it!!

And if you want to see the most amazing blog post from Moulin Rouge check hers out.   

Its like I was there again.

Moulin Rouge was the best event

I ever attended!!  Kim you are awesome.

I'm going to bed now…..cough….cough..sniff





  1. Boy, was I lucky. So many people caught this, some were sick over the weekend, poor things. Glad you are getting better!

  2. don't over do it! you don't want to wear yourself out. Be sure that there is lots of time to sit and admire your new pretties!

  3. Robin,
    I was glad to meet you in person finally!!!! And I love my pillow. Hope you love yours. I too came home sick as a dog. Headed to the doctors for DRUGS! And then had company come in LESS than 2 days after getting home from California. And then 10 of us met up in Round Top for a huge Antique Festival & we shopped for 6 days........ Talk about tired. And it took me forever to unpack too. My box of goodies from the bus trip(Joy Campbel drove it out to Round Top so I didn't have to pay shipping) & clas stuff is still in the guest room. SOMEDAY we will catch up my friend. HUGS!

  4. Please take a look at my latest post ("Man har et...") on my blog *Babushka & Co.* I have a message for you (at the bottom).
    Happy Easter,
    Lisbet /Denmark
