Lazy Weekends....

The weekend is coming to an end my friends and what a lazy weekend it was for me.

I am currently a girl with no fun money to spend as all my money must be used in other ways over the next few weeks with a car insurance payment due, license tabs fee to be paid, money to be set aside for new tires for my car, and the list goes on...

So, instead of visiting my favorite antique shops like I would have loved to, I spent most of the weekend just hanging out at home, doing some of my other favorite things, like using my pretty china to enjoy a nice pot of hot tea...

Glancing through some of my favorite decorating books.....

Which of course might not have been one of the best things to do as it is looking through these books and some of my favorite magazines that makes me want to hit the antique stores and see if I can find items similar to those I am drawn to as I glance through the pages of these books.

And I've been organizing and tiding up my craft table to make it so I can actually use it instead of having to sit on the floor to do my creating. Still a work in progress.

After I tested the waters last weekend and made my first ever embellished tag, I'm anxious to make some more and try a few other things as well, but my craft table had so much stuff covering it, that it was really unusable and was prohibiting me from being able to comfortably sit and do some creating, so I'm hoping now that I've cleaned it up a bit and made some room on it to actually work, that I'll be able to do what I'm wanting to.

Now though, it's time to close the weekend by making myself a bowl of popcorn and settle in to watch Desperate Housewives, one of my favorite shows on TV.

How did you spend your weekend?

Hello, my friend.
I know, it's hard to stay away from the antique shoppes, isn't it??
We have many of the same decorating books!! I, too, love to sit and dream, browsing through them! So much inspiration!

It is good to stay home and truly enjoy the things we already have. :-)
I would love to come over and drink tea with you!

Hi Kim,
We did a lot of little things this weekend. It was beautiful here. Your tag was really pretty, glad you will have the space to create again when the urge hits you!

Thats what I like to do to entertain myself when money says I have to stay home.Now that I'm blogging with my tea friends I can always set a table for them. Isn't it nice.

Sounds like a lovely relaxing weekend to me, your yellow tea cup is really pretty, so much better than drinking tea out of a mug.
