Relax, don't do it. When you want to go through it. Relax, don't do it. When you want to come. Bum BUM! PS. My great aunt's name was Frankie :)
I'm keeping up the string of wonderful days! Winter, be damned! Yesterday, I had an appointment in Annapolis, so afterwards my mom and I decided to use our Groupons for 60-minute massages in downtown. It was lovely. You forget anything that might be troubling you over the course of 60 minutes of relaxing. Even just sitting by a fire with a good book would cure the soul for an evening. While waiting for my mom to finish her massage, I stopped by Annapolis Coffee and Tea, Co. for a chai tea latte and some P&P. If I lived in Annapolis, I'd be there every night. I just love being in coffee/book shops.We rounded out the evening with dinner with dad at California Tortilla. It was really a great night spending time with my family...definitely a great reason to be living in Maryland again :)
While I was there, my parents mentioned they were going to get rid of a little side table/lamp that they've had for years. So now that I've claimed said table for future use, I've been thinking about how I want to make it work for my space. It's currently a redish wood with bronze neck holding a cream shade. I think I might paint the wood white, spray the neck oil-rubbed bronze (ORB as Younghouselove.com calls it), and the shade will either stay cream or get sprayed a robyn's egg blue or covered in lace. My inspiration for this feel is in the photo I spotted over at "Garden and Gun Magazine." I just love the mix of the rustic, white, and a hint of color.
What do you think? Girlie yet natural, right? I hope so, since that's what I'm going for. Do you have any crafts in the making?
