A Nice Saturday

My cold is almost gone! Yippee!! Zicam is my new friend. :) So far it's been a wonderful weekend. It started last night when Jim brought me home this adorable plant stand he found at The Goodwill for only $8.00! He says that he has my style pegged now. It all started like this. A picture was sent to my phone while I was at work and it said "Do you like this?"


Michelle said, "It's adorable!!!." Then the next picture came through...

And in its new home. What a sweetheart Jim was to think of me! I do love that man!


Today is such a beautiful day! I opened all the blinds, flung open all the doors to both decks and enjoyed the bright sunshine! I haven't seen sun like this since last summer. I just know we'll have a beautiful sunset tonight.

I met my very good friend Tami for tea today. I had not seen her in two months since I left my last job. We miss each other a lot but we email everyday so it's not so bad. After tea we stopped off at one of my favorite little antique shops in old town Ridgefield. I bought a couple of sweet things. :) It's the same antique shop my sis and I went to while she was here.

Inside the antique shop....


More wings to add to the wings I got from Kelly at Southern Fried Cupcakes! Aren't these beautiful? I might have to spray paint that "Believe" sign pink. :) Notice the halo came with it.




And isn't this the sweetest little container?


Tomorrow is my day to volunteer at the local cat shelter (I try for every Sunday). I convinced Tami and her sister to come see what it's all about and they're both excited. I will try to take pictures and post all the sweet little kitties in my next post. :) Hope you're all having a restful weekend. :)

Michelle, I love the plant stand and the Water Closet container is special. Great ideas and wonderful finds. It was suppose to be sunny today,,but turned out very gray. Not even warmer...so enjoy the weather and have a good day at the shelter tomorrow.

AndreaLeigh said...

that is so sweet! what a man you have. i shudder to think what my husband might come home with. i don't think he understands my decor after 5 years of marriage. he's a hopeless case.

Love those white wings. And is that your bed in those photos?! It is sooooo pretty. Will you show pics sometime?! I used to have sheers everywhere in our old cottage...sheer curtains on all the windows and sheer mosquito net over our bed...it was all so romantic and gives such a soft ethereal feel. Thats when our cottage was decorated in roses. I miss the sheers, but like the wide open windows of sea cottage.

Glad you are feeling better and had a day full of sunshine!
