Simple Pleasures #11

Wednesday I got my covid booster and my flu shot in the same arm at the same time. I have to say that the booster was a big ouch, but I am glad to have it done. I will now feel safer going out and about.

This has been a slower week for me. I took a couple of days to relax a bit after the vaccines and after the crazy four weeks of listing in my Etsy vintage shop.

I now have over 50 vintage printables in my shop and they are on sale for 20% off.

Do you love to thrift like I do? I have been getting back into the swing of it and you can find some great tips here.

Can you believe I found this fabulous vintage African Zulu tribal shield thrifting? I couldn't believe it either.

Simple Inspiration

Wow, the last couple of weeks I have felt like I have made quite a few mistakes. Of course when you are learning new things that happens.

I am definitely trying to learn from others.

Lovely Reads

Do you ever find yourself falling down Alice's rabbit hole when you start reading things on the internet?

Happens to me a lot, but then I can share some of my finds with you.

It's not too late for some more DIY pumpkins is it? Love these French burlap decoupage pumpkins.

More beautiful autumn decor ideas.

35 leftover rotisserie chicken recipe ideas for that chicken you picked up on your way out of the grocery.

Garlic and herb skillet pork chops sound perfect for a cool fall evening meal.

I love when you can toss everything into one pot like this one-pot chicken and rice meal.

Favorite Gluten-Free Recipe Of The Week

If you love gingerbread and you love scones, but you thought you could never find any that were gluten-free, I am happy to say you were wrong. 

These look so good I want to just reach in the screen and pull one out.

  1. Wow good for you on the printable. I got my flu shot the other day.

  2. Hi Sweet friend. I love the burlap pumpkins that Marie made. Those are so cute. I also hit on the recipe for the one pot chicken and rice. Making that one! Thanks for sharing her recipe. I got my flu shot yesterday but waiting on the booster since I had Moderna. Hopefully by next week they will get approved. Have a great weekend. xoxo Kris

  3. I am "boosted," too! Waiting to get my flu shot next week. The rotisserie chicken post is pinned for future reference. Good luck with the printables!

  4. All kinds of good things in your posts. Congrats on getting all your shots; I'm still waiting on Moderna too.
