~A few days ago, I was looking at Valorie Q.'s decorating blog, and she was talking about decorating her laundry room. Well, I left her a comment and told her that my "laundry room" was outside, so I didn't have much to decorate. Then,....I got to thinking that I had some NEAT COCA COLA things that I wanted to put somewhere, but didn't really have a place to put them. SO...I went to work (while Phillip and the men were gone,) and "decorated" my "LAUNDRY ROOM", which consists of a washer...
and a "DRYER"....that is... 6 clothes lines! My "Dryer" may not be the latest model...but I'm happy for Phillip just hung me 6 NEW clothes lines. =D
I'm happy with the "New Look" of my "LAUNDRY ROOM", and Phillip loved it too when he got home.~ =)
~When Phillip went to Ecuador last April to get our Colombian visas, he heard that some of the Ecuadorians were making a BIG FUSS saying that "Coca Cola" was making money off of what THEY are known for, the Coca leaf (the drug!) So, Coca Cola started showing their history in Ecuador and REALLY promoting Coke to sell more. They made 6 neat replicas of historical bottles. When Phillip was in Ecuador, Coke had put out the first 4 of the 6 collectible bottles that they were going to make. (The last 2 came out after Phillip left.) SAD!! =( Phillip also saw a neat poster advertising the 6 collectible bottles, and asked where he could buy one of those posters. He was told that they were not for sell to the public, but for store owners to use to advertise COKE. But, one dear man, in a store, took down his poster and GAVE it to Phillip.
~This is that neat COKE poster that some store owner gave to Phillip. I just got it framed while Phillip was gone. I took it to get it framed on Tuesday and they told me that it would be done on Saturday. Well, I began to PRAY that God would PLEASE help them get it done by Thursday night, for I wanted to have it hanging before Phillip came back from his trip. BUT YOU HAVE TO KNOW THAT HERE, NOTHING GETS DONE EARLY... MOST OF THE TIME, IT'S LATE!!! So, on Thursday evening, the girls and I ran to the store just to SEE if by any chance it was done, and when I walked in, there it sat against the wall.... all DONE! Before I knew it, I had squealed with Joy right out loud, and embarrassed my Kimberly to death. =D But, I explained to the store people why I was soooo excited, and that I had prayed and soooo hoped that it would be done early, and the store people were glad that I was Happy. =) The Collectible COKE bottles are replicas of the following years:
from L. To R. in the poster:1915, 1913,1889, 1900, 1905, 1923.
Phillip was able to buy all but 2 of them, the 1900, and the 1923 ones.~
~I have been storing our neat water filter (that Bro. Edwards bought us before we came here) on 2 cardboard boxes, but they were getting pretty warped looking. I needed more space to store things, yet I didn't really want to spend money on yet another piece of furniture...so my mind got to working and I decided to find some of these neat old wooden crates to use as my "cabinet". All of the fruits and vegetables here are shipped in these crates, so you see them all of the time, out with the garbage. =) So I went to a store and they gave me 3 of them. We used 2 for my "cabinet", and one to hold my fruits and veggies. I'm happy, and it was for FREE! =)
~This BIG box in our living room, is trying to HIDE something. You see, my piano has to have an amp and speaker to run it, so I have those 2 hiding in this "box table". I'd prefer not to have my "box table", but it's better than trying to hide an amp and speaker themselves. =)~
~Excuse all of the CORDS going everywhere under this little table. Here in these houses they put ONE outlet per ROOM, so extension cords are our Best friends. =)~
We had a good Sunday today, Thanks for your prayers. A Sunday report will come soon, This post was already ready. =)
