Decor and Nature

I just love my little apartment! I was looking around at some of my things last night and thinking how lucky I am. I have an odd conglomeration of items rescued from various Goodwill stores, flea markets, resale shops, etc...

Two pieces of an antique water wheel I put makeup brushes in

Old Appaloosa box I keep magazines and photo albums in- isn't it cute?

Two of my fave handmade pillows found at Goodwill and a flea market

And then there's nature. I am a nature lover to be sure. Last week I almost lost it because I saw an otter swimming in a pond. I just think the things God makes are so beautiful! 

I like it when I see home decor books with pieces of nature incorporated. When I had the dogs out swimming yesterday I thought the tree next to the lake was neat and so I grabbed a few branches to take home. 

Absolutely no idea what kind of tree this is- I just likes it's funny green balls! 
Vase from a flea market (I love my lime green, what can I say?)

More branches with my new "pet" Venus Fly Trap

The tray is one I made for my Granny years ago. 

Meet Buzz Kill, my new Venus Fly Trap. Isn't he adorable?

  1. CUTE! I love making a new apartment/house your very own home. It's the best feeling.

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
