In the summer I use my white slipcovers and then in the fall I do the big changeover which requires the energy of Superman.
A few trips to the attic....maybe I put them away clean and maybe not.
Thank goodness last spring I did because I have the mother of all colds and it required every last bit of effort I could possibly pull from my body.
How do you Moms do it with a cold??? I rarely remember my Mom being sick in bed....she just plowed through. I feel like I have the Keebler Elves inside of me making snot like there is no tomorrow.
I guess that's what over the counter meds are for. Of course I get to the cold and flu isle and it's like my IQ drops to an all time low. I mean....seriously just trying to figure out which one to buy puts me in a dither. I mistakenly took something the other night before bed and did not realize until the next morning that it was the non drowsy version. Crikey, I was up all night.
But....back to what is important.
In the fall I take down the large oil over my mantel. This keeps me from getting tired of it. I know you guys have that same affliction.
Here is what I came up with.
I think I have said this before but the Magnolia leaves will last forever...especially since I put them in water. Lucky for me I have 3 trees in my backyard so I can change them out when needed. Nothing new here people....
I bought those galvanized tubs at Scott's a couple of years ago for about 20.00 each.
I decided to leave the green shutters up pretty much because I did not feel like trying to find another place for them. Besides...I do like a little color in a room.....
You can see in the background I revamped my bookshelves. I do not do this but twice a year. It's exhausting getting all the crap out and then putting the leftovers away.
Not to mention the part where you have to keep looking at it a million times to see if it is working.
I am saving the rest for another post.
Here is a picture of my new purse.
I love the vintage look of it. You can see more styles here.
That is all I can squeeze out.......gotta go blow my nose.
I hope everyone is healthy right now....
