Good grief, I had no idea so much time had flown by since my last post. Well. What's new with all of you? I'm hoping your New Year has gotten off to a fabulous start.
I love January. For the beginnings it represents and the cleaning out it inspires me to do...on top of that, I have spent the last week doing as much as humanly possible with Lauren! We have enjoyed shopping, going my my favorite scrapbook store, (www.scrappinglounge.com), watching movies, (500 Days of Summer-yuck. The Proposal-pretty cute.) and generally hanging out. I love every minute of it. Unfortunately (for Lauren), she has come down with the flu and is walking like an old woman, battling a sore throat and a fever and feeling like crud. Thank goodness it happened before we took her to school.
Brenna had her first horse lesson....
She would barely touch the horse to groom it, or give it a carrot.
But had NO problem getting up into the saddle!!
I found a killer deal on some chairs I have wanted for FORever:
Which, by the way, I haven't finished putting them together yet, which is why the dining room looks like an explosion:
The Christmas decorations are all put away, though. The house was clean for about 3 hours, which was nice. I do have a question for you, though. What would you do with this cutie:
I used to have dried hydrangeas filling it. At Christmas, I trashed them, as the poor flowers had seen better days. I filled it with silver and gold pine cones for the holidays. That was fun. Now, I can't figure out what the heck to fill it with.
I do love this piece. Anyone have any suggestions?
It just looks lonely and needs some ideas!!
I found this adorable silver vase (?) not sure what it is:
There's no engraving on it. I found it for $2.00 at a thrift store.
Well, I think we are about all caught up! There is so much to look forward to on this blog-a whole year to see what will be discovered, learned, and done. OOOH- and more people to meet as well!!
I have about a million ideas running through my head for dominoes, soldered Mah Jong tiles, VALENTINE'S day....can't wait to show you what comes from the ideas!
Have a great day!
