The kids go back to school next Monday.
Where did the time go?
I thought that I would reminisce on these last few days of summer...
...by posting photographs that remind of sweet summertime.
So long my sweet summer.
Until we meet again-next year.

On a Wing and a Prayer-Before and After
Weekends always get me thinking about projects.
So-in preparation for this weekend-I thought that

Above is another view of my rendition.
And as a bonus...
I thought that I would throw in a photograph of what I affectionately call my
"thrift store vignette"
because all three of these items cost a mere $6 total!
I would love to hear about your weekend projects
even see a few of your thrift store vignettes.
I hope your weekend is filled with love and laughter.

adorning a modern master bedroom
or covering a casual sectional?
I suppose this is the visual definition of

Wishing you an inspiring rainy day...
