mr. oblivious, how do you not notice?????

when i ordered the annie sloan chalk paint last wednesday i figured it would take at least 
five days to get here.  so i felt safe that it would come either today or tomorrow.
what i didn't remember is that don only works a half day on mondays because of his 
golf league....
oops....
he doesn't leave for golf until 4:00 pm.
the ups truck arrived at my house at 3:40 pm.  
mr. oblivious was in the backyard watering the garden,
 in full view of the driveway ->>>
and totally oblivious to the sound of the ups truck stopping at the end of the driveway 
 and of me walking to the end of the driveway.  so i took the box from the driver 
 and walked it right back up to the garage.  
in full view of mr. oblivious.
was he so involved with his impending golf game that he didn't see me?
or did he see me and roll his eyes into the back of his head and figured it wasn't worth 
the inquiry?
i actually think it was for former.  but who cares?
IT'S HERE!!!
 was shipped the same day that i ordered it because i got an email stating so.  i ordered from virginia at the southern institute of faux finishing here.  
 there is nothing like personalized customer service. nothing!!
in the box was this envelope and inside the envelope was this cute little triangle folded note.
 i love it when something is handwritten
addressed to me and signed.  in pen!! it may seem like an insignificant thing, but that is the 
kind of service that keeps me coming back.  thank YOU, virginia!!!

 austen had a baseball game tonight and i didn't get home until 10:00 pm. 
so the fun will have to wait until tomorrow!!!
i can't wait!
(no, this chair was not painted with the chalk paint) 
i will have a post about this chair soon!

Oh, and guess what? I convinced Matt to paint the wood floors! Now to decide on colors/patterns...

My paint has arrived as well and I am super giddy to paint lots of things up. On my list is a makeup vanity, kitchen table and whatever else I find along the way. We can share happiness.

Love your blog. What color is on this chair. I have a china cabinet I want to paint and I really like this blue.

Thanks! Angela

thank you everyone for your lovely comments. the color i used on the chair is called swan sea by behr but it is sherwin williams paint.

i am assuming that the color is a behr color but i'm not sure because the paint was mixed in 2005!!! :0 it is sherwin williams flat latex paint. it is so old i don't even know what we were going to use it for (it is a full quart)

hugs, cindy

I love being sneaky and not being caught by my freinds and family.
