Are the repairs done? Nope. I’m still waiting for them to get started, or rather finish what they started. I’ve told the reno company that I’m opting for “wood floor” look vinyl to replace the carpet – less expensive, easier to clean, my sinuses will be happier. It’ll be a little colder in the winter but I can get some cheapo throw rugs to put down during that time. Or maybe try to weave a few rag rugs this summer if I feel up to it, who knows.
Nice story – I love “Fixer Upper”, and when their Magnolia Market had a sale this month I had ordered some decorative signs from them. And almost immediately had “buyer’s remorse” because what was I thinking, I had insurance co-pays, etc. I contacted their customer service and asked if I could cancel the order since it hadn’t shipped, and within minutes a rep named Leslie emailed back and said sure, no problem, and got it done immediately. I was impressed, so told her thank you, I’d had an emergency come up but would be a customer later. In maybe a couple of hours she emailed back and said, “We understand emergencies, and we would like to give you your order as a gift, to bless you”. What?? I’ve never heard of anything like that, and I explained what the emergency was and of course thanked her profusely. They were delivered here on a Sunday – didn’t know they even delivered mail on Sunday except to maybe some businesses. Along with the signs there was a cute little muslin drawstring bag with a magnolia leaf attached, and a pencil inside that was printed with “Tell Your Story”. I’d posts photos but don’t have Photobucket anymore and have no idea how to otherwise post photos here. But anyway, it was a wonderful surprise.
Stay crafty, my friends!
