Good morning and happy Friday to you! There isn't a lot going on right now and I have to work today, 12-8pm...but then I have the weekend and Monday off. Can I just say one more time how much I am LOOOVVINNNNG being part-time?
I thought today I'd share a few things around here that make me happy.
First up is the artwork I bought last Friday at the At Home store. I had a big empty wall in the kids' room after giving a painting of a long ago neighbor's Dachshund to one of the residents at the nursing home. When I saw this painting of an (I think) Italian street I fell in love. The picture doesn't do justice to the richness of the colors, but I think you can still see how pretty the scene is. I just love the couple walking down the street. And it encompasses all the colors of the room it's in.
Then there is this little bunny and his lamb-y pal. I found them at the At Home store, too. Isn't he just the cutest thing?
This is my new desk chair. I had an antique wooden chair before it that got awfully hard if I sat at my desk for very long so I am really liking the soft, comfortable seating.
I created this corner of my office with a hooked rug I picked up at an auction for $3 and an antique Smith typewriter found in a junk shop for $20. Something about this little scene just speaks to my soul and brings me calmness.
Watching little Leah bounce and explore in her bouncy seat is so much fun. She has such a good time playing and making the things light up and play music. (I don't know why, but I don't have a picture of her actually IN it.)
This corner cupboard was found in a architectural salvage store. I fell in love the moment I saw it. The owner allowed me to put a few dollars down on it and Tim went back a couple of months later, paid for it, and brought it home as my Christmas present. It holds my Peter Rabbit figurines and all the other sentimental little things I can't let go of.
And that's it for now. I need to get a shower and do my hair for work. Have a blessed and happy Friday! I'll see you tomorrow for the Saturday 9.
