Just another manic Monday...

...I wish it was Sunday. Oh the Bangles had it so right with this song. I heard it on the radio on the way in this morning and I have a feeling it will be stuck in my head all day long. It will be my theme song. I have a feeling it will be another manic Monday...Tuesday, Wednesday...you get the point.

So, in a few hours it will officially be Fall. Here, here. I raise a glass (McDonald's iced coffee) and toast its arrival. Heres to cool and crisp mornings and temps in the 70's all week. Perfect!

My weekend was so fast that I didn't get a chance to take pictures for you over the weekend. I do have some new thrift finds to share and some new kitchen furniture. Here is a sneak preview. I promise more tomorrow. I promise.


And speaking of thrifting...I was dreaming about it last night. Actually I had a bit of a thrifting nightmare. How sad is that? I am not sure where I was but this person was giving away all this cool junk and furniture and I was driving this teeny weeny car- a clown car sort of thing. No matter how hard I tried nothing would fit and others were lurking. Manic, no panic! Oh, I'm in trouble.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Monday- a calm, peaceful beginning of the week and Fall.

Now there will be two of us singing that song all day! LOL! Can't wait to see you weekend yard sale finds! When I found the old metal washstand, I immediately thought of you! :)

I LOVED the pictures of your family's old farmhouse! Such a beautiful place and the stairwell was fabulous!!!

Happy 1st day of Fall! ~Rhonda :)

Geez...now I am gonna have that song in MY head all day long! I still adore you though! I love the way the kitchen is starting to look! I really love it. I wish I could meet you after work for a Fall Toast...I wish we were next door neighbors! I am struggling at work right now. It is the 22nd and I have those 10 projects that have to be finished by the 30th!!!

Ditto on the song in my head!! I loved me some Bangles back in the day :)

The colors in your kitchen are so pretty! My kitchen is green, and I think I need to add some splashes of red....barn red, of course! It might be as simple as picking up some red dish towels. What do you think??

Can't wait to see more pictures...

Oh that would be a nightmare!!!! That's too funny! Well, I can't wait to see your thrifted treasures! I didn't have much for the weekend besides a couple of clothing items and a bedspread. Looking forward to your next post, as always!

I used to love that Bangles song! I haven't been able to go thrifting in ages! All I do lately is go to soccer games! I can't wait to see more of your finds.
