I'm Back . . . well, kinda

My friend Jeanie's doll head collection - she illuminated the heads at night - she's a riot!

I'm almost fully recovered from my Warrenton/Round Top coma. I've been relishing the fact that I am not out in a field with 45 to 50 MPH sustained winds, hoards of rain and rotating 40 degree to 80 degree temperatures! I'm presently about a 20 oz. bottle of Diet Dr. Pepper away from having the "National Soft Drink Council of America" sponsor the remaining years of my life on this planet - can you say - OVER CAFFEINATED???!!! I have spent most of the past 2 weeks sitting on the sofa surfing the most excellent daytime programming available to me - please note the dripping sarcasm intended here. I've watched "I Love the 80s" marathon on VH1, I miss big hair and shoulder pads so much! And just so I can get a little exercise by proxy, I stopped on some yoga instructor telling me how important my "core" is on the "I No Longer have Self Esteem Channel", and turns out my pelvis has a floor - who knew? I've also taken it upon myself to test all the items in the pantry and refrigerator containing chocolate, high fat or ingredient contents that sounds unhealthy - Christian service work, don't you know? I don't want my husband or children to eat a bad Ding Dong or Dorito. I don't mean to get all religious on you here, but I'm fairly sure Dark Chocolate Dove Bars are proof that Jesus loves me. To be completely honest the only thing missing from this full force "lazy-fair" has been booze!

My neighbor and friend at the show, Maggie from The Veranda nails the Vintage Garden-Paris Chic-Rmantic Cottage look everytime!

Well, I have to get back to WHAM and Boy George, but I thought I'd leave you with some great images I snapped while out wandering the fields during Antiques Weekend.

And of course "Large Marge" from the Junk Gypsys has to make her appearance.

I'll return tomorrow with something wonderfully inspirational and "calorie-free."

Carolyn from Carolyn Westbrook Home was there with here usual amazing set up.

I was just thinking about you. Sounds like your life is a hoot:) Have a fabulous friday!!


Thanks for the 'plug' in your blog post! I thought about you today when I was at an estate sale that had 100's of pretty vintage slips, gowns & robes -- CHEAP! You could so sell them!! I bought a few robes. Going to use them like summer jackets with jeans & t-shirts. Don't have the nerve to wear the slips out in public.... Maggie
