on Fall Ya'all!

How about an Autumnal Manicue?

Hello! 1964 just called....

It wants to let you know that your laundry's ready for pickup. 

Yes... I'll have them hold for you.....

That's my new, old phone. It's from 1964 and it works! 
Isn't it so cool? I hung it in my black and white laundry room.

So, I was thinking, and I'm not so sure, but I don't think that I have ever shown
you my little laundry room. 

I finally added one little thing that I have been wanting to finish

Look at the difference that this one little piece of fabric made.


Such a cheap fix. Why did it take me so long to do this? 
It's just a spring rod and a single panel.
I'm pretty pleased!

Every year I have such a hard time putting away the 
photo Christmas cards. So I came up with an idea. 

This little memo holder is where all the Christmas pictures 
hang. That way I can still enjoy them all year.

Since we walk thru the laundry room to go to the garage, it is the last thing that we see
before we head out the door.

So I picked these up at TJ Max last year and hung them in here.  
They are so positive.  What 
a great thought before you head out the door.

My big brother's boots from when he was little.
So glad that my mom kept them.

 So that's our laundry room. The tours over. :)

You can go ahead and schedule your pick up now. 

Bye now!

Monday's Manicure

Hello my pretties!

Today's mani is brought to you by Nars and the color Disco Inferno.

This color is so cool! Its a holographic color.
You look at it one way and it's green, another way and its gray or purple.
Sometimes it is blue.
It took about 4 coats to get the opacity that I like,
but it lasted well. And it actually goes with more than you might think. 

Hope you are enjoying your week!

Weekend Wrap-Up

Hello, my lovelies!
So glad your here!

I thought that I would give you a run down on a really fun and busy weekend!

As always, Friday kicks off the weekend.
I met "The Bride" (my girl) and we went over our 
design idea for "the big project"! Then it was on to 
Home Depot to get supplies and have the wood cut.
Those guys are so helpful!

We picked her colors and had the paint mixed. We then took all
of the supplies back to the house to get ready for a full Saturday.

Early Saturday morning we headed to the wedding venue to go over the
itinerary and make sure we have everything organized and ready to go
as far as the rentals, DJ, bar etc.
This picture was taken from the garage... It was the kind of day
that we are praying for on the 24th of November.

Then back to the house to work on "The Project".
We worked until 10:00pm but it all turned out perfectly!
I was amazed! I am dying to share the whole thing with 
you .... but I promised I wouldn't. I will 
later though. :)  
It's so CUTE! 

Sunday morning hubby and I made a unanimous decision to stay home from church.
I was gone all last weekend and he still had a lot of work left to do on a contract. 
So I got the Chemex out and made a pot. During the week we use the 
Keurig, but the weekends are perfect for the pour over! 
LOVE it!

I also did all the updates on my computer. I put it off as long as I 
could and just couldn't put it off any more. I hate doing them.
It takes forever and then there are always changes and things to 
be re-learned. UGH! 
Am I the only one that hates the updates? 

Sunday afternoon included a little bit of gardening. 
Fall really is like a second Spring here. 
The roses are coming back, the winter grass is coming in....

and everything is blooming! 

The weekend ended at Tutti Santi for a lovely
birthday dinner! I love this place. 

I have a few things to share this week, so come back and check in!

Simply Crochet

"We are all apprentices in a craft where no 
one ever becomes a master"
Ernest Hemingway

When I came across that quote, I knew I had to use it. It is so true!
We are all just on a journey, trying to hone our craft along the way.

I hope you have a crafty weekend. I'll see you on the other side.

Monday's Manicure

Hi ya, Gorgeous!
Glad your here!

Today's manincure is brought to you by Essies's Spin The Bottle. 
How about that? A nude called Spin The Bottle!  Har har har har!
These nail people crack me up! 
I have to tell you that I love to wear a pretty nude and this is one
of my all time favorites. The perfect shade. Not to pink, not to pale,
not to beige. Just right! 
This is two coats with a top coat.

Fresh-Cut Friday October

Hello my friends!
I'm so glad you are here.

I don't know about you, but I am also glad that October is here. 

Fall just sort of lends itself to books and tea. 
Don't you think?

Are you reading anything?
I'm currently reading Three by Ted Dekker. 

Like my little silver tray? 
Bought that at Goodwill for $3.99.
It still had the Dillard's tag on it. 

We really don't have fall here in Phoenix. It really is more like 
a second spring. It is a whole new blooming season.

The sweet little teapot was a gift to me from my daughter from her trip to
Boston, years ago. 

I'm down right tickled that you joined me for Fresh-Cut Friday!

I can't wait to see your posts!

I'll be joining:

Sherry for Home Sweet Home
Cindy for Show and Tell
Courtney for Feather Your Nest
