County Fair Time!

Ooohh..I am so tired today.  We have just seem to be going non-stop lately with no break!  It is fair week in our town this whole week and we went last night.  It was a beautiful night for it, not too hot and not rainy like usually.  It seems that fair week alwaysvfalls on a hot, humid and rainy week, but not this time!  Connor had a blast with a friend he met up there with.  They went on lots of rides and played some games.  I guess we will be going back one more time with dad!  My mom went with Connor and I last night since she is leaving for Virginia today to visit my brother!  Here are some of Connors favorite rides!

So pretty!

Isn't this image just so pretty!?   I could look at it and look at it!  I love the greys and creams and pop of coral/salmon on the dresser.  Why can't I ever do that? I would love to do a room all the same shades from top to bottom and then just add pops of color here and there that really stand out.  Ideally, that is what I am looking to doing in my kitchen, if I can ever get the cabinets finished.  It just feels like whenever I have a couple hours break from pillows there are a million other household things to get done that are more important!  Dang that laundry pile that never quits growing!  Or the constant addition of dirty dishes in the sink....darn you!  Well, I am off to start my day of pillow-making!  Wahoo.  :)  Have a great day!

I want to be here......

I want to be here.  Right now.  I need a break desperately!  Connor had his tonsils out on monday and had complications and needed a SECOND surgery to fix it.  Ugh.. I feel so bad for him, he is hurting really bad.  I hope he feels better soon!  And on top of that, I am even farther behind on my pillow orders from my etsy shop.  I have almost 300 pillows to make!  Some customers are really nice and patient, but others, let's just say, are NOT!  And they are mean about it.  And even are leaving negative feedback that isn't true.  It upsets me because I work really hard to make great, quality pillows and  I try to get them out as fast as I can and have super great customer service and so on and so on...  It is frustrating...

Anyways...back to the pillows and to get my tough little guy a much needed popcicle!  Thanks for listening to me rant! :)

White Sleeping Beauties

There is just something so calm and serene about white bedrooms.  I think it feels like you are sleeping in a cloud!  I especially love the first one wit the tufted headboard- so cozy!   And the last one- right up my alley!  Really though, I would take any!

A Day At The Beach..


Yesterday was lovely..we spent the whole day at the beach, laying around, swimming, muching on snacks.  Connor caught a few minnows and reluctantly threw them back. He wanted to keep them. They sat in a bucket full of water for about an hour...poor little fish. They were so happy to be let go!  The day was beautiful though and the water was warm.   I swam and swam and felt like a little kid.  I remember swimming like a fish when I was little..staying in the water for hours on end and coming out with shriveled up fingers...ah, the good ol' days!   I love coming out from the water and laying right in the hot nice!  My husband tried dragging me out to water over my head....not nice.  I know how to swim, but I panic for some reason when it is over my head.  (only in a lake, not a pool).  I picture creepy crawly fish biting at my toes for strange reason.  I am strange, I know! :)   It didn't happen, but hey, it could of!  So the day was grand- we stopped for ice cream afterwards to pack on the calories we all lost from swimming  and heaed on home!  How was your weekend?
