Life in the Fast Lane

Seems like there is never enough time in the day to get everything done. Always hurrying to get one thing done after another. I did shut the computer off last night before 11 and was asleep by 11:15. I decided all my work could wait. Even blogging and reading a book!! So now I feel like I have to make up for lost time. For some reason I always feel guilty if I am not keeping busy. I have to MAKE myself take a break. Maybe it is a good thing I have the camper now. It is my little retreat from all the work to be done in the "real" world!!
Saturday I found some great bark cloth that I have listed on Ebay I also found this great foot stool for $5! but I am keeping it and using it in my living room. I think I am starting my fall/winter nesting, LOL. I did find time to redo my fireplace mantel, my version of fall. I didn't think orange went too well, so instead I did the deep rich colors. OK back to work!!
Oh yeah, check out these chartreuse zinnias a friend gave me!

I am the same way. A sickness, I say. Someone needs to invite the "ok to chill pill". Oh, gotta run - busy, you know. Love, Esther

I love that stool. It's so pretty. Wouldn't match a thing in my house but I would have bought it anyway. And FYI - your link to Ebay doesn't work.

Oh, you know I'm bananas for that pink stool!! And... you're going to have your hands full judging. Tell me if you think you'll be able to announce a winner on Saturday or no. I don't want to put a burden on you. Have a wonderful Wednesday. Blessings... Polly (p.s. your mantle looks great!)

Hi, thanks for visiting me on my blog the other day. I was trying to find a way to email you to answer the question you had about my painted brooches. I do collect them, but I'm super cheap and don't want to pay much for them.. They seem to have gotten very expensive over the last few years. Every once in awhile if I find for a good deal I will snatch it up, but that doesn't happen very often. Have a great day!
