Shabby Chic Storage

One of my favorite recent finds is this wonderful vintage painted milk crate. A gorgeous cottage chic blue and it is wonderfully chippy too! Oodles of uses for this sturdy crate, but I love it full of colorful vintage tablecloths. And it’s the perfect size for magazines.

And as much as I adore it, it just isn’t right in my home of rose pink and sage green. So I’m going to be listing it on ebay this evening. So please take a look at the*cozy*cottage. I’m very tempted to keep it and redo our guest bathroom in this amazing blue color!

The last colors of summer……..

Summer passed way too quickly, but fortunately left behind some gorgeous blooms in my garden to be remembered by.

And with the arrival of fall comes an invasion of the creepy crawly kind! Spiders! I’m over run with them! Hundreds! All around my house and gardens! Almost makes me wish for snow!

An Update.....

The weathers turning a bit chilly and the kids are back in school. It may not officially be fall, but autumn is definitely on its way!

My daughter is now attending high school with 504 accommodations that allow her to self-manage her diabetes in school. I am extremely grateful to my friends at CWD, our legal advocate at the ADA, our Physicians Assistant, and all the prayers and support from my friends here at home and at the TLC. And to the school administration who in the end proved to be clear thinking and supportive of my daughter. Thank you!

While I can breathe a sigh of relief, I still will be actively support the Pennsylvania Safe at School bills in both the House and the Senate. And if you are in Pennsylvania, I urge you to call your senator and representative. This bill needs to become law!

I’m taking a couple of weeks away from listing on Ebay and on my website. A few things around the house have taken a back seat lately and I want to spend sometime with the family before basketball season begins…again! I’ll still pop in everyday and ship items from my website. Check back soon and there will be lots of wonderful vintage items! And Christmas is just around the corner…I have tons of ornaments and decorations to share.

Happy Fall my friends!!
