nobody said it was easy

new friends

well, actually Coldplay did…

anyway, i’ve been doing it, 5 am 3 days in a row. Frazzled was a really good description of the pitfalls that may occur! I have to admit that i’ve been getting a lot done lately, but i’m not sure those extra hours are all that important to spend out of bed. I LOVE my bed! how do you mothers, wives, working women do it all? you AMAZE me!!!

Well, today i picked up some new pieces for the shop. thought i’d share. they make me ~happy~they’re so pretty, little vanity thrones…

thought you may enjoy this article, it’s out in romantic homes magazine this month…

now i’m working on NY…one of the best things about this city are its fleas!

    Okay okay I guess it’s time….I think losing a coupla pounds inspires the soul to do other beneficial things….at 5:AM hehe….I’m always more motivated if I feel a little thinner.

    In the summer I’m up early and I head for the gardens…weeding…watching and wondering.

    Those chairs struck a chord.
    Have a nice weekend.

    Hi! Thanks for that. I do love my job. getting up is fun when you get to be creative! as for losing those couple pounds: what is it with the 5 pounds that won’t leave? i finally had a skinny day…ONE day and then was back to feeling thick! the green tea and the yoga in the am are the only tricks that have worked so far. let me put that teabag out for the am so i don’t go for the coffee and cream….!
