You officially have the weekend off… from linking up that is.
My amazing blog guru Josh will be migrating the blog content to my new location this weekend, so his goal is to shut off the comments and do it while it’s relatively quiet. So it would be best to not host SNS this weekend.
But hey, great news… now you have more time to go make something new for NEXT weekend, right??
Please be prepared for a little bit of a bumpy ride and a big shuffle once landed. I have no idea how the posts will be messed up or whatever. We’ll figure it out I’m sure.
Recently I took a cruise by my old place. This is where I use to live before I do now.
I avoided this drive for the longest time. I knew the new owners had removed the amazing golf course type yard, barns and massive ancient trees and all the rustic fences lining the property. Trust me… it was amazing.
I had planned to retire here.
While this is a little hard to look at for a few reasons, it helped me realize how ill suited that place would be for me on my own. 5 acres is too much as is. That door felt nearly closed at this point and it was a revelation to me.
I still miss the porch, but don’t miss cleaning up after the birds.
I miss the massive yard and all it’s wonderful plantings but don’t miss spending 4 hours to mow it all.
I miss the countryside but I have a variation of that scene in my own yard now… with MUCH less upkeep.
I’m glad I am where I am. There… I said it. Finally.
I hit the garden isle not long ago and stocked up on a few new bells and whistles for the yard. Who else goes through a hoze nozzle every year?! They just don’t last or I’m shopping in the wrong place. And real rubber hoses.. nothing like them.
Check out those crazy big flowers in the home decor area… sure were fun to look at!
I do this about once a year. I walk into Winners, load up a buggy to the hilt and go on a trying on spree.
I don’t like shopping for clothes. I’m not at the weight I desire to be so it isn’t as much fun, ya know? But oh well… I have a reason to get a few new things so I made myself.
I was drawn to simple layers. This is my version of a Jennifer Aniston look with a little junk twist in the mix.
I just wish that checkered shirt fit… I really wanted it! Boo.
Swayed with suede
I got shoed out too! These boots and… loafers? clogs? whatever they are were both sooooo comfy! Loved the suede. They both came home with me.
Home decor taunts
And then I snuck into the housewares. I fell in love with the colourful, soft throws. I wanted the red and blue. But I left them for another day.
The burlap stamped boxes were so awesome! Wouldn’t they make a fun side table or foot stool in a bigger size?
Loved the subway picture too… this one had a real chalkboard feel to it.
So… I hope everyone has the most wonderful weekend and cya on the flip side! Hopefully we’ll land right side up and everything…
Over and out, old world. Here’s to new beginnings!
