Update , yes two in one day!

This is my hankie curtain going out onto the deck. I saw this idea at a shop called "Ya-Ya's" and loved it.

This rain is dampening all our spirits. Baby had the right idea! But then, so did Angel.Ziggy, man of the house and always "on guard" didn't , though.

Wanted to give an update on the herbs in the terrarium-they are growing!!!
A few of my flowers that I could plant without getting out in the mud - in a window box on the deck!
It's been kind of a weird weekend. I have water in the basement again. The sump pump kept stopping, then starting, now stopped again. Then, my new clothes dryer started making a crazy noise. I looked in the vent, couldn't see, turned it back on, it blew a fuse. I move fifteen boxes out of the way to the breaker that we had just moved there out of the wet part of the basement. Go back, it's still making noise. I stick a coat hanger down in the vent, drop the hanger, get another one and pull both the other wire hanger and a sock out. (No MORE WIRE HANGERS!!) Then - I get in the car to go to my Mom's for dinner, the engine light comes on and it sounds weird. So....I decided to eat an extra big piece of pineapple cake with cream cheese icing for comfort food!

Check out this new blog, and send some blog love!!

My friend over at Retrocurbclimber is trying to get her blog going. She needs friends! She has really cool taste in vintage. It's more of a "Down at the lake cabin look" but mid century none the less. Every so often, she does score awesome '50's stuff that isn't "cabin". She got an awesome mermaid lamp yesterday, and I love it!
So please-check her out! And for a teaser, the picture above is the new mermaid lamp. Dig those crazy stars on the shade!! Mermaids and stars..oh my!
