How Do I Measure Up?

I don't know about you, but I can never seem to find my measuring tape when I need it.  I had 2, but they always seem to hide when I'm working on a project.  I've tried wearing one around my neck....but sure will sneak away.

But today, thanks to a quick stop at the thrift store, I shall never be at a loss for measuring again!  I found measuring tapes....lots of measuring tapes.  I shall put one in every drawer, in every room, in my car, in my purse and every nook and crannie I can think of!

Sometimes it just doesn't take much to make me happy!  What has made you happy today?


  1. I'm like you...always missing the measuring tape. And the regular tape, scissors, string, a pen, nails, hairbrushes, white get the idea!!

    I'm happy today that the heat is back to normal and it's sunny outside! Yay!!


  2. Hi Susie! What a fun find! I can usually find mine, unless my grandy Emily has decided to flit about the house measuring everything!! Then I use hubby's!!

    What made me happy today was getting a vintage sewing chair for $10 to go along with the mid century modern little desk I got for $15 to use as Maddy's vanity in her newly redecorated room! We will start work painting it on Tuesday! Can't wait! And we finally found a black and white damask comforter she loves at of all places...WalMart! This room redo is very budget friendly!! I'll reveal it in the next week or so!

    Have a lovely Sunday! Colonoscopy on Monday {UGH!} and then I will definitely be in touch so I can pick up my stuff!! Looking forward to meeting you!!

  3. Around my house, the nail clippers always disappear! I'm happy today because I attended a class on using a Serger yesterday. The mystery of left needle, right needle, lower looper and upper looper is a little less daunting! I am anxious to purchase some more thread and get Serging!

  4. lol I had to do this with flashlights. Seems I always need one..and oh with magnifying glasses also, and notepads and paper and...and...


  5. LOL- OH MY GOODNESS! I can NEVER find one of those stinking things when I need it! Just don't put one by that scale~ xo Diana

  7. I know just how you feel. Making dolls means a tape measure, or two, or three etc. I have one that I glued to the edge of my sewing table and three hanging on hooks on the left side by my table, ready to go. Came up with this solution after driving myself crazy constantly looking for one.
    I still would also have purchased them just never know...
    Have a great week,


Thanks for stopping by...ya'll come back now, ya hear?
