Monday, Monday

After a weekend of retail, Monday feels kinda rosy to me.

I still have a huge list of things to get through before it all starts over again.

But Monday means just a little kick back time to replenish the creative juices.

A bit of time to pick up a book and a pile of magazines. This corner, well this whole room, is always piled with both. Ask anybody. It's just shameless.

I've got my stand-by's that are never very far away. . .

I stay in my jammies long after what is considered reasonable.

And just have a look at this new luscious Restoration Hardware catalog! A girl's got to find time to keep up on these things!

I always have a big ol' hassock to put my feet up on. I've earned it! I mean ya'll have heard about retail these days haven't ya?! And I always have to have a big magnifier to see the print that somehow gets tinier and tinier. I want one next to every pile of magazines I have in the house and believe me that's a lot! And I'm well on the way!

You really can't imagine just how long I can pore over things sitting right here. I think there are actual statistics on how many beautiful pictures you have to look at in a day before you're revved up enough to go re-arrange something aren't there?

Well, I hope you're having success with whatever you're up to at the beginning of this new week. If you need me for anything you'll know where to find me!

Ciao for now! Thanks for stopping by!

Hi J. gorgeous photos and I truly believe every girl DOES need a big fluffy spot to sink into to soak up all that inspiration! I could stay in that spot all day. Love that new china you found, so versatile!

Looks like a fluffy cloud to rest upon and enjoy the magazines and books! And topped off with a beautiful rose picture---lovely and heavenly!!! Steve has collected several magnifying glasses, too. They're very pretty and interesting, and I find myself using them more, also. I'm also enjoying the movie pics on the side---wasn't Fried Green Tomatoes great! Going to your blog is my respite!
Have a great week! Kay
