This summer, we have been very busy (see Budget White Kitchen Makeover or Bedroom Revamp). We’ve worked straight through June and July, throughout most week nights and on weekends. While my sister and I have the summer off, George does not. He even took his summer vacay week off to work on the kitchen. What a guy!
Then, August was upon us before we knew it! And, you know the saying, “All work and no play . . .” So-o-o, we decided it was definitely time for a little R&R break. 🙂
A few restorative days at the beach were in order . . .
Hmmm, think I need a pedi!

Certainly needed to work in a little sight-seeing thrift-ing . . .
Quick! Know anyone who needs a leather topped mahogany table for only $49?
1940-50’s mahogany table
Who couldn’t use a vintage wood ladder (or two)?
Glass jars speak to me. Even vintage pickle jars. I envision a seashell collection inside.
Ever since we started our bedroom revamp, I have fallen for vintage cotton linens.
And a nostalgic trip down memory lane . . .
Digging through loose photos packed in shoe boxes, I found two fuzzy photographs: my daughter and niece playing dress-up in my ruffled, stained 1980’s wedding gown. Got to love those 1980’s fashion mistakes.
Ha! I certainly don’t remember being THAT thin. What ever happened? 😉
Well, I feel rested and ready to complete that kitchen makeover tomorrow morning. Hope those who are now experiencing summer are able to take a little R&R break. If you’ve the time, please check back in a week or two to see our progress. Thanks for stopping by!
Have a good week! – – Joanne
