Should you need to powder your nose...

..I would direct you to the sign on the guest bathroom door.....;-)
I thought I'd give a little tour of our guest's been this way for awhile and I'm feeling like adding a little color to it. I'm thinking aqua....

I collect 'motto's' and like to display them in small spaces....

This little table was purchased at a garage sale for $2!! I painted it white and 'antiqued' it with furniture scratch cover, 'cause that's all I had in the house at the time. I have a discontinued wall paper book that I ripped a couple of pages out and glued them on the surfaces..covered the edges in trims found at Big Lots.

A close up of the collage that hangs above the table....
Here's the little vanity. I dream of someday fitting a small antique dresser in there and set the sink inside the've seen those before, I'm sure. I have the hand soap sitting in an old silver victorian pickle jar holder.

And a shelf above the commode..displaying some fun treasures. I think bathrooms are a fun place to display fun odds and ends, don'tcha think? I'll let you know when I get the aqua in there!!
Have a wonderful day!!

'Nother Cute Store in San Diego

The day I was flying back home from San Diego, my dear friend Toni (who was taking me to the airport) and I stopped by a few antique stores. This is the only one I took pics of. It's called Vignettes and I just love it!! This is Toni in the above picture. Hi Toni!!!
And this is the sight that greets you when you enter the door.....okay, no more writing, just the tour. Enjoy!!

I just loved this cute little embellished shelf! How fun to take a few doo-dads and attach 'em to a little shelf!
Have a lovely day!

You'd think I was in Europe...

....but no~ while in San Diego my friend, Anita, took me to Balboa Park where we perused the museums and lunched in the gardens. I thought the architecture was amazing, so I set my camera on 'sepia' and snapped away. The pictures would make a wonderful art project, so feel free to use them! Just right click on picture to save on your computer.

Snake In Our Yard!

My big, strong, brave husband caught a snake with his bare hands!! The following pictures are not for the faint of heart...(just kidding) ;-)

Yep, there it is...a baby garter snake.
This is our third one we've found...the other two were full grown. One was a 4 ft garden snake IN OUR HOUSE! THAT was a little un-nerving! And another just gliding through the back yard. We've heard they're good to have around, which I don't mind if they stay outside. I have no idea how one got into our house!
While I had the camera out, I snapped a few of our dog, Winston....

He remained unimpressed by the snake...
Have a wonderful day!!
P.S. Thank you for the lovely congrats about our Anniversary! You guys are so sweet!
