Where does the time go?

Where does the time go?

I haven't been blogging much this summer (I know it's really even more than that) but I've got good reasons... more time spent with family.   Back in February I got all my cross stitch and needlepoint crafts out of storage and have been busy making lovely things.  I have also been happily pinning (Pinterest) a lot of patterns for crochet as that will be my Fall season craft... my eyes can only take so many hours with the needlepoint these days.  But I've caught up on many of my favorite movies while I sew.  I've decided to crochet a blanket as my beloved burgundy chenille is looking it's age (over 10 years old now) and it's time to replace it.  I already decided I will stay with one color and keep the pattern fairly simple, I just know I don't want it to look like a pot holder!  ha ha


 
Summer is over for the kids this week and back to school is in full swing!
I've done my checklist ... Hair cuts, lots of new clothes, several uniforms, 4 pairs of shoes, a few school supplies, registration fees (remember when public school was FREE?) etc.  Thank God for over time pay because without it, my wallet would be hurting from the extra expenses this time of year.  Lord -  You are faithful!   
 
 
 
I've got a serious lurve right now for brie cheese with pesto on crackers, bread, etc.  It's become my several days a week snack with a chilled glass of chardonnay... sometimes I throw in a few sun dried tomatoes - delicious!  Sometimes even replaces dinner...Yum!
 
 
I like many styles of architectures and decorating... I like Country (think distressed wood, antiques, lots of candles for lighting, softer colors and tones), I like Traditional (think rich colors, plush fabrics, dark wood and crown molding), of course Victorian (my favorite) and this year I've also decided I like Shabby Chic however, I'm particular about MY version of chic.  It's definitely a girlie type of d├ęcor so it's not easy to have a doll house when you live when men but I'll be happy to start with a corner of my bedroom and then expand from there.  I'd really like a ROOM to myself.... call it MY Cave, like Men have their Caves with pool tables, theatre sound system TV room, etc.
And I definitely want a chandelier in my room!
