* Book of Days

Went shopping with a friend today to a large town about an hour away.  Big Box Store City.  ha ha  Anyway, I did manage to snag a ceiling fan, track lights for over a mirror and a ceiling light - all for my studio upstairs.  Now I just need some hallway lights and that takes care of the lighting.  It seems never ending what one needs to finish a house.

By the time we got home I didn't get any more painting done, so I will share a spread from my book of days.

She looks like she might have had a little too much vodka --- ah well --- hope she had a good time!

It hasn't rained today, but looks like it might.  I bought a fig (Ficus) tree today with the trunk already braided and a gardenia, so I'm excited to get them into pots tomorrow.

Thanks for dropping in - always a pleasure to know you were hear and read your lovely comments.   Blogland is a magic place.  Take care.  xoxo  Donna

  1. Looks like you had a good day shopping. :) I know what you mean with the house being never done. We're always building and fixing something here. :) Love your girl, she looks happy and excited to me. :)

  2. So nice to hear that you were out and about with a friend. I love your pages. Wishing you the best of days ahead.

  3. A fantastic spread with your 'signature" eyes for a beautiful lady.

    Happy to hear you purchased a ficus tree. They are easy to grow and always look good. I never could grow gardenias and in your climate, they will grow and smell heavenly.

  4. Simply a beautiful journal spread! :)
    Gardenias have such a heavenly scent, enjoy.
    We have one right outside our bedroom window... And during our California heat waves, the aroma fill the room! ~xx

  5. Gorgeous journal spread, that Lady just looks happy. Enjoy your new purchases! Valerie
