First of all, I want to give you a heads up that starting now, Madalynne will be undergoing a redesign. I won’t be posting for the next week as the transition occurs (and I’m sorry if my site looks a little funky during that time) but sit tight and I promise that new Madalynne will be spectacular! Click here to get a sneak peak of the new design.
Now onto my post…
Once again, it was a whirlwind week. For about six months, something was going on in my chest. I couldn’t pinpoint what it was or where it was. My heart, my lungs, my throat? I just didn’t know. Well, on Tuesday, I visited an allergist. It was the first doctor of many doctors to figure out what was going on. Linda, the nurse (we became good buddies during my 4 hour visit), pricked about 40 spots on my back where she had dropped various allergies and no more than a three minutes later, she had to stop the procedure because I was breaking out into hives. Apparently, I am highly allergic to everything except cashmere, ruffles, Italian men, and Grace Kelly movies. Twenty-eight shots later and I left with a goody bag that held two of my newest accessory – a nose spray and an inhaler. Do you think Kate Spade makes holders for such things?
My week got even better. Way better. On Thursday, I won a $1,000 wedding dress for $87 at an auction at work. No I don’t have a boyfriend and no I don’t have a fiancé but I have a wedding dress. Am I insane? I think so sometimes. The deal was just too good to be true. It is made of the most gorgeous silk linen blend and it has eyelet detailing at the bottom and a beautiful bow at the back. I may refashion it to be a maxi skirt or I may leave it as is and wear it to a summer wedding despite its color. I will look better than the bride!
As for this holiday weekend, I will be chillen with my Grandma Mimi for most of the weekend. A couple of trips to the pharmacy (she thinks CVS is revolutionary) and many slow car rides to and fro (she one of those old ladies you honk at) are on the agenda. She’s fabulous and a hoot and I can’t wait to spend some time with other. In addition to Grandma and granddaughter bonding time, I will true the pattern for my latest project and I will cut the fabric for my muslin for my other project. What’s on your agenda?
