I have been hearing all about it from a couple of my sisters, but I don't spend alot of time on the computer, so I never really got a chance to check it out -- it was kind of a "sure, whatever" kind of thing for me. But for the past two days, this heat has really been getting to me, so I've been inside (and going crazy!), and kind of started looking at it by accident -- I followed someone's images on their blog right to it......WOW-EEE!!! I can't believe all the wonderful primitive, colonial, Early American images and pages on there! I've literally gotten lost on there -- today it was for 2 hours!! Well, that's easy to do - you click an image, that takes you to someone's page of MORE awesome stuff, and sometimes it has taken me to other websites (where they found the image), that have MORE pictures! I have 12 tabs open with wonderful pictures or Pinterest pages -- I don't want to X them off because I can't stop staring at them!! LOL
Really, just WOW, the inspiration, the quickening of my heart....you've got to see some of these!!!
BE STILL MY HEART!!!!!!
See that table in the last picture....I am going to make one like that! That's why I'm keeping that page open, so I can use the picture to help me with designing it!! :-D
Well, staring obsessively at all these gorgeous rooms gave me a terrible itch to go to the antique store today, the one nearest our house. It's not GREAT, but I've found some really neat things there, for not too much money, either! Today, I bought these.....
Also, at Lowe's, I picked up THIS....
Sooooo, this heat should be breaking after tomorrow, finally!! I mean, it's literally like an oven outside, and whenever you open the door, the heat radiates in -- yuck! That means I'll be able to work on some projects that I need to be outside to do. Also, Brian's vacation is over tomorrow (*sniff!*), so I'll be by myself during the day again (*sniff! sniff!*), with plenty of (lonely) FREE time to focus on those projects.....I've sure had a sweet and wonderful week with him, even though we didn't really do anything major around here. More on THAT tomorrow, I'm sure (when I will be quite sad about it! :-( -- I LOVE when he's home!) ^-^
