Happy Friday!!!

Just added a couple more totes to the shop... One is trimmed with a Red Paisley silk tie and the other a minty/lime green silk trim. Above is a shot of the girls (no not all mine) playing outside. I had about 10 seconds to snap it... and off they went to catch some lightening bugs!

To be 5 and carefree again......

Our driveway is a lovely canvas for the little artists in the neighborhood! Very sweet.

You can borrow magazines from the LIBRARY!!!!

OH MY GOSH. How is it possible that I did not know this? I know, I'm embarrasing myself.
But for someone who LOVES magazines as much as I do, this is something one should know!!
So my new love is the library. I even have a library card. Yes this is what you do when you are no longer working. In between visits to the sandy haven...

(yes this is today : )

So we picked up some easy reading for the lil one!! We love Dr.Seuss........

And some mags for mama............. heavenly!

Thrift store find

So this is the GEM I found at a thrift shop. I just adore it!!! LOVE IT!!! Seriously.
I should say this 2nd hand shop isn't just any shop it is now my sisters' shop, so I really can't stop by too often as you can imagine. Trouble. Trouble.
So I pick up this necklace and show it to her... she says 'you like that? really?' I'm saying 'oh my gosh, are you crazy, its beautiful!' sigh* oh well, I guess I'm drawn to unusual things!

So here it is(a less blurry shot)........ Now if my neck doesn't turn an awful green color then it will REALLY be my favorite!!! here's to hoping : )

Thursday ......schmurzday

So can you believe that I have not made time for anything crafty ...not a thing. I guess I haven't been in the mood. No fear though, I've blocked out some time Monday and Tuesday to get crafty and hopefully get my totes in the shop!!! ; )
I did pick up this pretty sheet of paper at Borders...... What did ya say...oh what will I do with it?

uh do we need a reason to buy pretty paper?

And this book just hopped into my basket..... because we all want to know the secrets!! And here I am looking through June's Country Living for inspiration, so I can clean my house. Yes, I need inspiration to clean! ha

Hey Wednesday!!!

Photo: Day2

This is an old album I found at the thrift store......'Sleeping Beauty Ballet', I just thought it was such a great cover that it had to be framed!! And it matched my bedroom quilt, so it is perfect.

Day 1 post job...........

So this was the first day sans work. It felt so very strange. I know it should of felt like a day off but it didn't. It was different. I ran errands, kept somewhat busy, but there were certainly moments where I was wondering 'OK what do I do now'. (Even though there are a billion things to get done)

So I want to try to do this little thing where I take a photo each day for at least 30 days. It could be more than one, but definitely ONE. Just looking for the beautiful in the ordinary. Or something from my day, really it could be anything. Let's see how it goes.
This photo -below- is a piece I started on........but it's still in the works. They will be original pieces of ART made directly on old books, to be displayed as such.

and of course I had plenty of time for some sweets! Very YUMMY banana cupcakes with Rainbow chip icing. Oh so good!

Tomorrow is a NEW day and I'm looking forward to it!!!
