however, it is definitely okay ( and even encouraged) to laugh at this picture.
So that's why i've been a lame blogger this week and also why we decided to ditch the crowds and have a lazy fourth of july day at home. although we did go to a flea market and found this splendid tufted leather 1950's Bench
I screamed "stop!" to steve so i could go pick these snowy weeds the other day. a good weed is hard to find in the city. they were a dime a dozen in the midwest where i grew up.
My wonderful friend laurie brought me about a hundred wooden spools in the loveliest colors, i haven't figured out quite what to do with them yet, but right now they're a fantastic makeshift bouquet in this planter.
Gramaphone salt and pepper shakes from mousetrap on etsy. the hubby not only collects salt and pepper shakers but also vintage sound equipment so this was the PERFECT present. He was pretty excited when he opened it.
one of a few small things i don't like about our house is that there is no window over the sink. so i hung this picture and pretend that this is my backyard, while i'm washing dishes. there are not a lot of things i find more beautiful than flowering trees. meet scout finch, my other pup. this is where she has spent most of her weekend, behind a yellow chair, deathly afraid of the fireworks that are constantly going off in our neighborhood. seriously, it sounds like armageddon.
the poor soul
and an extremely tiny shop preview :)
Hopefully i'll be feeling like this again soon, only with red lipstick and combed hair :)
I hope you all are having good, relaxing or exciting independence days, however you like them!
Thanks for reading,
