House Cleaning

I know I've been silent for far too long. I've been so busy at work and getting the kids school stuff done. I promise to be back soon. This working full time thing takes some getting used to. We've finally gotten below 100 degrees here in the valley and it feels great. Even managed to squeak in some time in the garden. Which was looking really bad after the month + of 100 degree days. We'll kick off the entertaining season this next Friday with a progressive dinner. We've been busy getting the patio ready which means removing the layers of dust. I need to get busy and do some sprucing up here on the blog too. Hope everyone is having a great start to the fall season.
This was a picture I took last year of our neighbor's front yard. Their trees were just gorgeous. Of course this was December rather than fall. Gotta run. Take care everyone.

Tales from a thrift shop addict

I'm a firm believer in that if I wait long enough eventually what I want will come through my favorite thrift store. This just cemented that belief. I've been wanting an ivy with a form for quite some time now, but $50+ is just not what I am willing to pay for such an item. When I went to my favorite spot last week here it was. A little neglected but with some TLC it'll be great again. Pot, ivy and form only $6.00.

A new blog

Such a ham!!
Pretty Tina!
I'm sure we'll know what to do with this once we get started.
Our really good friend Becca has just started her own blog. You can see some great pictures of our San Simeon trip in August. Careful you might just laugh so hard you'll hurt yourself. Personally I want to burn the pictures of the Arabian princess if for no other reason than my hubby about hurt himself laughing so hard. Becca's blog is here.
