I'm back!

Well, I took the holiday weekend off....and kept going!  Our friends have a lovely cabin in West Virginia and I am fortunate enough to be invited to visit there several times a year.  It's a relaxing and peaceful log cabin (when it's not crowded with folks!) with a lake off the back, a porch with a tin roof to hear the pitter patter of raindrops, lots of canoeing, tubing, chatting, eating, having fun and friendship. And at the end of the day, a bonfire.

When I'm in the canoe, I feel like Katherine Hepburn in "The African Queen" with Humphrey Bogart, sailing up the river.  Or down the river.  Anyway, it's lovely and I can pretend I am the queen while my hubby paddles upstream.  I do help, of course!  But I prefer to enjoy watching the turtles sunbathing and, when the waters aren't muddy, following the fish.  

So today, it's back to work.  It's a typical Monday in that I'm unfocused and want to crawl back in bed.  I have always said when I had my own business, I wouldn't work on Mondays.  When my business is profitable enough, that's the plan!

Today I listed a vintage LIFE magazine featuring Margaret O'Brien, with plenty of old Ford ads and a spread on Richard Nixon.  If you are creative, take the magazine apart and decoupage!  Or frame up the old photos and decorate an office or family room.
