What I'm Reading in April

I'm enjoying browsing through these Beautiful pictures in the new Cottage Journal  magazine and the articles are full of some nice decorating ideas. 

Nora Roberts second book in the Cousin O'Dwyer Trilogy has come out, I hope this one is easier to understand the language.

I'm most excited to load up my Kindle Touch with some great Ghost stories to read in the car and late at night though. I love the smell and weight of a good book in my hands but afterwards is becoming a problem, what to do with the book after I'm finished. Our small house is feeling cramped this Spring and my Kindle is helping me with this by storage. 


What are you Reading this month?

Shopping the Drugstore

Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser
Recently I ran out if my expensive face wash that I have to either drive to the Mall to buy or order on-line and wait. My oldest daughter has ran out of her face wash so I knew that it was time to run to the store. 

I was in CVS and after standing in the aisle for a very long time browsing all of the new products that have come available to us, I picked up my old stand-by in a new form. I used to use Biore as an early teen.

After having used this for alittle over a month I'm pleased and surprised to find that my skin likes it. No harsh peeling or itchyness plus no crazy breakouts! I don't find my skin getting overly oily in the afternoons either like with some over the counter soaps.

My daughter likes it also!

Nope, not a Sponsored post by Biore, I'm just really pleased with this new face wash that I don't have to drive very far to buy!

What new Drugstore products have you noticed?

Spring has Sprung

It's warming up here in FL. Each new day the temps rise and it's the perfect time to start opening up the windows and get your gloves ready for planting flowers.
I have bought a little Herb Planter for my kitchen window, lots of sun shining through here in the afternoons. 
I bought this at Home Depot for under $8.00. Now I have fresh Basil, Oregano and Parsley. 

I moved my Ponytail plant over here and it seems to like this little wall so far. 
Next weekend we plan on buying some flowers for our outside patio but for now we are back to school after a nice Spring Break. 

What houseplants, if any, do you have?

From Country to Tuscan?

Going from Country to Tuscan/French Country?

Can it be done?
Bought this for $10.00 from a local lady. No scratches and glass frame!



Bought this wrought iron/glass table from a local lady for $40.00, not a blemish on it!

For years now I've decorated in Americana/Farmhouse but since moving to FL I've felt out of sorts with our decorations. 

Slowly we will be replacing our decorations with French Country/Tuscan. Richard is liking the idea and I feel like my decorating mojo is back!

So if you decorate in this look, Please share what Magazines or books should I start browsing thru to grasp a better concept of it all!

I did happen to pop into a Kirklands on Sunday and I am in Love with that store, Where have I been??!!

I will be back soon with an new Kitchen tour!

Joining in on~

Horsey Stitches, No Stove and Colds

Last Friday night was a Doozy!

Joey freaked out while in the cross ties, we don't know why or what spooked him but he did a number on himself, ended up needed emergency stitches on his lip where he tore it. After 7 days the vet will come back and remove his stitches. The swelling has gone down and he's back to being his sweet self. For now we are not going to be putting back into the cross ties until we are able to get Crystal's trainer out here to work with him.

So after the Vet left and Joey was tucked in for the night I went to fix a fast dinner, it was late and we were tired, I was thinking about some tator tots/nuggets and a veggie. As I was waiting for the stove to heat up the element decides now is a good time to die. Alot of sparking, smoking and even though I turned off the oven in a panic, It kept going almost causing a fire! So fast forward to today, we are still without a stove, Landlady said one is supposed to be delivered sometime on Thursday..I'm thankful for my Crock-pot and our Grill. 

Last night I started to feel run down and had a slight sore throat so I went to bed early but this morning it's so much worse, every time I swallow it feels like I'm swallowing glass. Ouch!! 

I wanted to post every day in March but these past few days have run me down.

I'll be back with a Happier post in a few days, I have ton's of posts I want to do but have no energy to do them.
