Well, not really. But it’s nice to pretend once in a while, isn’t it?
Today we ditched the plans on stocking up in Amish country so I spent the day cleaning. I did the entire kitchen & breakfast nook floor, washing it thoroughly and then waxing it. I love a clean floor and my universe is almost aligned now. I also cleaned the kitchen.
Then this afternoon I took out my macro lens and just walked around the house taking a few pictures of things that caught my eye. I like the colors. Above is a zippered bag that I received as a gift from a friend. I have it filled with tea bags.
This is a beautiful dish that was also given to me. It’s a new acquisition and today I’m using it to serve crackers and cheese with a Malbec from California.
This is my favorite tea light ever. I bought this years ago in one of the only decorator shops on Ocracoke Island. It caught my eye as soon as I walked in. Around it I have my red glass berries circa 2000 from Pottery Barn.
An old pillow from Ethan Allen that serves as an accent on George’s couch. How I ever came to have a couch that’s primary resident was a dog is beyond me.
Have you seen this commercial that has been airing during the Olympics? It features 2006 silver medalist Gretchen Bleiler who's just advanced to the snowboarding finals at this year's Games. I am totally enthralled with this ad and every time it comes on, I stop what I’m doing and watch. I just found it today on YouTube after looking for it a couple of times during the past week. And I just realized that I truly do use the word ‘just’ way too much. See [yesterday’s wordle post] for explanation.
Hope your day is a good one, my friends. Thanks for stopping by and visiting with me.
