How are things going in your world? Are you glad it's almost the weekend?
I sure am. Things are going pretty good here, although some days I find myself very frustrated and overwhelmed with all that needs to be done at work. There are never enough hours in the work day to get everything done and many days I come home from work feeling like I accomplished nothing that day. Today was definitely one of those days.... LOL.
One thing that always brightens my day and brings a little peace into my world is taking a few minutes to wander around my house just to feast my eyes on some of the pretty things I have displayed. There is nothing like some pretty roses to make me feel better.
Pretty roses like those on this sweet little china desert plate....
This is a small desert plate that I've had in my collection for some time. Sadly, I don't find many pieces like this anymore. I love the light and darker pink roses. They even have just a hint of yellow too.
Or maybe some blue roses like those on this Simply Shabby Chic fabric covered storage crate that I found at Target several years ago......
I found this one back in the day when Rachel Ashwell's Simply Shabby Chic line at Target used to feature more home decor items and not just the bedding and bath items like it does now. Boy, do I miss those days. I was always so excited to see a new selection of her home decor items when they made their way into the Target stores. I wonder if now that her Shabby Chic stores have closed if she will start to expand her line of products at Target. I'm hoping so and keeping my fingers crossed.
I can't wait until her new book comes out this fall. I'll be at the bookstore buying one as soon as they hit the shelves.
Anyways, that's all for now. Time to go fix some dinner so I can quiet my rumbling stomach.
Take care and enjoy the rest of your week and have a FABULOUS weekend!!
