Boy This Has Not Been My Week!

You ever have one of those weeks?  Well, I'm having one!  I took my ring to the jeweler for just a simple FREE cleaning and two of my diamonds were blown out from the cleaning machine which cost me $225.00.  :(  Then the drapery guy came to install my valances I ordered a couple of months ago only to find out they were made to small.  The finials on the rod were wrong too!  The seat cushions for my love seat had to be sent back because the foam was cut wrong and the pillows were made too big!  AND my family room sofa cushion was sent back because the whole zipper opened up!  
Love seat in my den!  
Family room sofa!
Received this in the mail the other day!
Naked rod in my den with no valance and wrong finials!  Guess I'll have plenty of time now to paint the patch on the wall.  And now for the icing on the cake!  Never burn a candle when you're sewing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Good thing I have a good sense of humor! LOL

  1. Denise,

    And I thought I was the only one these things happened to. I know this sounds very trite, but this, too, shall pass. Just think, when you get everything fixed, painted, and repaired, what a wonderful post that will make.

    Blessings to you today, my friend.


    In Grace,
    Marie

  6. Eeeeek! You ARE having one of those weeks aren't you!! Thank goodness you were there during the candle situation or that story could have had a bad ending!
    Did you find the diamonds or have to buy new ones?! I've heard the saying that Free is never Free :-)
    Hope you are being a very good girl and Santa will be bringing you some extra special goodies this year . . . . maybe sparkling diamonds!
    Take care my budster!
    Hugs,
    Lynn
