Happy Tuesday!

Oh happy day! It's Tuesday already, can you believe it?

Did you have a spectacular Easter? Mine was quite lovely...thank you for asking. I ate lots and lots and then ate some more...mostly sweets, which I am now regretting, by the way. I think that I'll have to start doing some posts about exercising or something of that nature to get myself back on track!


No exercise posts today though, instead I thought I'd just put up a put up few photos that I added some texture to and visit with you a bit.  It's Kim Klassen's Serendipity texture, in case you were wondering.  It has a nice, worn, vintage look that I think goes well with the things in my photos...like these little opera glasses.

Aren't they the prettiest thing? I can't recall where I got them. Oh wait, it may have been at an auction. Yes...that seems right. I think they look so nice paired with that vintage book too. And you know, I can't really remember when or where I got that either. Are you like that...acquiring things and then never remembering anything about them?



I always love it when I buy something old and there's a little bit of a story behind it. I have an antique table that came with a little note saying that it was from the Pillsbury mansion.  It makes me think of the Dough Boy.  My heart also goes a little pitter-patter when I find a beautiful old book that's adorned with handwriting inside it's covers...someone's name or a note about it being a gift.  It makes it feel like it was loved and a little bit special.  Do you have any old, vintage things you've found with a story behind them?

Well lovely people, that's all I have to share for today.  I think there's a cookie upstairs calling my name...kidding...no not really ;)  I hope you're having a wonderful week!

Highs and Lows

Hello!  Happy Monday to you!  I'm hoping that the next few days will be filled with only wonderful occurences.   I had some interesting moments last week and thought I'd share some of the high and lows.  Get ready to be jealous.


Low.
The weather.  Cold with a bit of snow thrown in.  Thus, the pictures for today's post..I'm wishing for a vacation.

High.
More time to get ready for shorts.

High.
Going to a Twins game at the new stadium and riding the light rail for the first time.

Low.
Going out for pizza before the game, ordering artichokes and getting ANCHOVIES instead. 

High.
 Noticing this before I took a bite.

Low.
My sister wasn't so lucky.


High.
Eating lots of yummy kettle corn at the Twins game.

Low.
You can tell that I've been eating lots of yummy kettle corn and then some.

High.
Finally getting a giant stack of about 400 pieces of paper all filed in their proper place...and no, I don't mean the garbage can.

Low.
Discovering that while I had been filing the aforementioned papers, someone had squirted a tube of toothpaste all over the bathtub.

Low.
Seeing that she had also covered her legs with yellow chalk.

Low.
And wiped it all over the towels.

High.
Having my first link party.

High.
Some lovely people attended.  Feel free to take a peek.


Hope your week is off to a great start.
