I sooooo love GREEN

don't know about you, but I am in total like of the color green...

I got this green sweater the other day that's just waiting for it to get a little cooler so I can wear it. Oh and let's not forget time to bring out those vintage pins...

I hung out with my cousin today honestly it was a beautiful sunny day. I told her I wasn't complaining about the sun I was complaining of the heat...

all I have on my mind is sweater time.


I call this picture - This is HOME

I woke up this morning now I understand


my head is full of voices and my house is full of lies

This is HOME


This is HOME


Now Im reading romance novels and dreaming of yesterday

This is HOME


This is HOME - This is HOME

Im going crazy, a little everyday - all I ever wanted is now driving me away.....

life if full of questions and its tearing mine apart.... and its tearing us apart.

Sheryl Crow.....

last night

last night I took a long drive. not sure if you noticed the beautiful gleaming white moon... almost full.

I rolled down my car windows, one thing is for sure I love a cool breeze, the smell of a wood burning fireplace, great music and the tranquility that darkness brings...

I swear when I took in that long breath I could smell fall in the air...

so this morning while I was picking up a bit and cleaning my glass table where my orchids sit and catch their sun rays, I did my usual routine of watering them.

A while ago I purchased this ORCHID plant on clearance. It was not doing so well, but that is why I got it because I thought if I gave it a loving home I could bring it back from the sad state it was in.

A few months did pass, it lost it flowers and honestly the leaves were not doing so good. A few times in the back of my mind I thought to myself darn I was not able to save it. It had a nice window, sun, water and of course my usual pep talk...

so this morning during my usual Sunday routine of watering this plant I noticed this lovely sight.
Yes, a new little leaf and a new root shoot..... It honestly brought a big smile to my face.

Did not really expect that. So many times I had thought it's not going to make it and then I will have to throw it out, but I am so glad I didn't because as you can see it was not dead, no not at all. I didn't give up and neither did the plant.

What a perfect way to begin a day....

Jackpot yes Jennifer all this from our little thrift store

so this Sunday I hung out with my mother and guess where we went. Yes, that's right we went to my favorite thrift in the south side. At first I was dragging, but thank GOD that I got some energy cause it was 1/2 off weekend. Some of my finds are pictured below the most I pd was $2.80 for a cute snowman plate made by Hallmark still in the box (not pictured) the rest well all below I would say $1.00.

I got a few vintage linen table clothes, a large square black pillow case with the bright flowers, more and more flowers.... I have been on a flower kick lately.

I got the Haeger ceramic pot below, milk glass look at the great scalloped border

my favorite of all the finds was this beautiful tapestry pictured below... the picture I took does not do it justice so when I can get a better pic I will post it. It's beautiful you will see.

so how much did I spend for all that you see well around $25.00 plus tax. My mom spent around the same and found some great things.

I am soooo IN LOVE

I am so in love with the thought of fall that is....


I know that then brings winter, but I am so ready for this hot weather to just go away for a bit.

I just love fall,
fall colors, fall sweaters, the trees and their wonderful colors of yellow, orange, red...

and as you can see I am getting ready for fall, are you?
