Once again I want to caution you to not get too overly excited and/or jealous about my life. When it comes to the lifestyles of the rich and famous, please keep in mind that I am neither. (Well, maybe infamous)
While taking my walk around my neighborhood the other morning I came across this mailbox, on this corner.
The mailbox is what caught my attention. I loved all of the clingy vines, and then I noticed the street sign and I have come up with a plan. I am going to sneak out early tomorrow and hide behind that mailbox in hopes of seeing a turtle parade. (If the residents of that lovely home decide to call the police, I feel sure I can count on you for bail money).
On second thought, I hope a turtle doesn't jump out of those vines and land on my head, because I don't want a photo of that showing up on the front page of the newspaper. My brother-in-law was a columnist and I have had my share of embarrassing details of my life in that paper. I am so over that.
The flowers are a lot like me. Clinging to summer weather.
I'm afraid that it will soon be a losing battle.
I did have a good week of thrifting and yard sale finds. These are just a few, most of which will be appearing in my shop.
I personally think that is pretty exciting. If you noticed the antique graters in the back, I have a box full of graters and sifters I haven't even gone through yet. Be still my heart.
I've also been doing a little decorating this week. This is a vignette I placed on my window sill. I love when the light reflects off of the bottles.
The beautiful hand painted fabric roses were a gift from my very talented daughter Katy of Winsome Hollow. She has another magazine feature coming out next month. That girl just can't keep out of the press. How come her press is always so good and mine on the other hand is....................
And yes, fall is happening around here. All of my wishful thinking doesn't seem to keep it away.
So I guess I will start to do some fall decorating this week. SIGH!!!
