"Restoration"

     Restoration!?! Only this time it wasn't a found piece of furniture, chandelier or ornamental mirror but it was me...yes I was just completely exhausted and needing something to restore my spirit. So I jump into my car with my favorite person of all (my husband) and off for a gorgeous drive through the Santa Ynez Valley (just minutes from home) to take in some favorite spots to eat, talk and window shop.

     And I must admit time seems to stand still here...and it's hard to leave but I do feel rejuvenated.  So until next time happy collecting, thrifting and finding yourself again...Restored.

Scenic drive

Rolling green hills and vineyards

Relaxation

Panino...a definite must eatery

Avec Moi Decor... a most beautiful shop to browse

"Reminiscing"

     Oh I remember this show very well....it was definitely a trip of a lifetime. The setting in Battle Ground, Washington was absolutely picturesque, with so many beautiful items to choose from and the food was "off the chain".

     However, the highlight of this trip was a chance meeting with (Jerome) one of The Barn House Boys. I can promise you that I haven't forgotten this experience and you can read more about it here.

     Thank you for dropping by...The Blue Farmhouse.

"I"ve Got Mail"

It's here...finally

     My hubby just picked me up from work and the second best words out of his mouth was..."You've Got Mail". And before he could finish I exclaimed...My Book! 
     I can hardly wait to start pouring through the pages....breathing inspiration over and over again.

Splish...Splash

And a kiss

"A Little Surprise"

It's still the simple

Found treasures

That I love...

     And this little black velvet belt with the circular rhinestone buckle was tucked away in a beautiful leopard bag I found for my daughter. I love pleasant surprises...don't you! 

     Until next time happy collecting, thrifting and finding little surprises.

"Happy 33rd Anniversary"

Yes...the years have flown by

And this love is forever!

     On Sunday, February 2, 2014 Tom and I celebrated 33 years of marriage together! So on Saturday night after I laid down to sleep...I shouted out Tommy can you come here please? He comes to my side of the bed and I ask him for a kiss... [and say] just in case I don't awake in the morning I want you to know that I love you and being your wife has been great and I've loved every moment!

     I'm so thankful to God for my husband and the years he has given us...I'm committed until 'death do us part'.

     Now let's go and hit some thrifts store...wish me luck! The Blue Farmhouse
