I definitely have a soft spot for furniture items that are versatile. Especially since we live in a small home. So, having things do double duty works out grrrreat for us! That's why I am to.t.a.lly considering a day bed for lil' S's room. It can be her toddler bed/sofa. Make sense? I'm digging the idea. Of course, I'd have to find one that is pretty low to the ground. Although, she gets on and off our couch pretty easily. So, I think she deserves more credit. : -/ But, anyway, for those of you out there who have limited space and/or a guest room you would also like to use as an office or TV room, I think daybeds certainly do the trick. What do you think?
I hope everyone's weekend went well. We had playground and ice cream on Saturday and car waaaaash day on Sunday. Our cars hadn't been washed and vacuumed in waaaaay longer than I'd like to admit. My ride is getting a new set of tires next weekend and I'd like for the rest of it to look just as shiny and new! I discovered that I could clean off the "foggy" headlights with toothpaste!! Yep! Toothpaste and glass cleaner and voila! Brand spankin' new! Gotta love You Tube!
Here are some photos! And yes... I chopped off my hair last week. : )
Because slides aren't just for sliding! Apparently, they're for napping too!!

I think I'm pretty thrilled this week has come to an end and the weekend now begins. I've been so so sooooo sick for 3 weeks now and can't seem to shake it. What started off as a cold has turned into an itchy throat, congestion and even pain in my chest. : ( Boo. So, I'm sorry if the posts haven't been "all that" lately. I've just been feeling pretty bad. But, today I see some light. : ) It's going to be an awesome weekend weather wise, so I may be inspired to ride my bike! I neeeeeed to snap up one of those bike baby carriers for lil' S. Wouldn't that be so fun??? Although... the more I think about it, the more I think maybe I should just rest, right? Hmnnn....Yes. That may be the smarter thing to do! I hope you're weekend is awesome everyone!

Boucherouite Rugs by minabrinkey on Polyvore
I've been crushing on these Boucherouite area rugs for some time now. I think they are so beautiful and they add an instant touch of boho pop to even the most modern, stark room. Don't you think? You can check out more beauts here. Do you have an item in your space that gives that particular room an instant pop of boho delish? If not... maybe you can look into one of these. So chic. So fun. Love!
I'm a tad of a zombie this morning because two hours of last night were spent sleeping in a rocking chair. Lil' S is having nightmares. : ( Breaks my heart. So, she wants me to keep her company. Of course, I'm happy to oblige. My back, however? Not so much. Not so much. Ouch!
I hope the rest of your week just cruises on by!

Vintage electronics by minabrinkey on Polyvore
There's nothing like warm spring Florida weather to put me in the mood for some vintage electronics. Weird, I know. But, hey... you gotta admit... these Etsy finds are preeeeeetty sweeeeet. Thank you very much. I am particularly obsessed with that orange fan/heater and that iPod capable vintage radio. Do you have any vintage electronics in use in your space? Do tell!!
How's the week treatin' ya so far? So far, so good here. Struggling a tad with lil' S at dinner time. Someone has become verrrrrry picky about what she will and will not eat. Roasted potatoes and split peas? No. Cereal? Maybe. Slices of American cheese ( you know... the type that come individually wrapped in plastic??) Yes please! Thank you! : ) Yah. So... when Jo over at A Cup of Jo posted this, it cracked me up!

We have zero closet/storage space in our home. Wait. I take that back. We have one closet in our bedroom without doors. So, the hubs put in a middle bar, to make the top portion his and the bottom portion my space. It's worked out fairly well. Well... except for the fact I had to donate over half my clothes before we moved in. Of course, I never wore that stuff, so it worked out. Yay for simplifying! : ) But, we've been going back and forth on whether to put fabric there to mask the clothes. Patterned fabric? Yay? Nay? Eeeek. Decisions, decisions. So, I figure for now I could just get inspiration from these open closets to make me feel better about ours. : ) Do you happen to have an open closet? How do you organize it? Do you think it forces you to keep things nice and neat??
I hope everyone had a fantastic Mothers Day weekend. We had a wonderful one. Except I had a pretty horrible migraine throughout. Blech. But, I'm feeling as good as new today! For Mothers Day, the hubs made me breakfast in bed (niiiiiice) and finally rode me around in the '66 Mustang! I had to dress for the occasion! See???
To say I was excited to ride in it would be an understatement. : ) After our fun ride, we headed on over to my mom's place to celebrate her and how amazing of a momma she is. It was an awesome time. I'm kinda sad the weekend is over, to be honest. Here's to next weekend! I will catch ya'll tomorrow for my favorite Etsy finds of the week!

I come across a lot of images on a daily basis. But, every now and again I come across one that really inspires me. I chose the image above from Buddha Interiors because it's got such a peaceful feel to it, don't you think? I could nap in this room on a rainy, Sunday afternoon. : ) The bed, the plants and the wall mural. All so dreamy. Oh and don't miss that dream catcher hanging from the ceiling! Beautiful. Of course, the hardwood floors and big window don't hurt either.
Hopefully your week is going just as peacefully. Lil' S is still going strong, albeit with a tiny cough. I'm hanging in there. Starting to wonder if my problem is seasonal allergies. Gotta look into that. Until tomorrow friends...

Okay, so I've been practicing my meditation and it's been going great! I'm doing 10 minutes each morning before I do anything else and, to be honest, the 10 minutes zoom by! I've been working on pushing out allllll the thoughts that enter my mind (good and bad) and clearing out my thoughts. It does wonders for relaxing my mind before I get started with my day. So, I'm going to keep working on it and start working on tying in some yoga. : ) I've got the yoga mat and was inspired to look at Etsy for some yoga mat bags. I find it extremely difficult to find yoga mat bags that I like. : ( I saw one I LOVED from Free People. But, unfortunately, it is waaaaaaay out of my price range. So... when on a budget... Etsy to the rescue!
These are just a couple that really caught my eye. I'm totally loving that second one down. Hmnnnn.... I hope you like them too. : )
I stayed home today with a sick lil' S. She ended up catching conjunctivitis and was pretty miserable all day Monday. Thank goodness for my mom who looked after her. But, today was my "sick duty day!" Thankfully, she's feeling a lot better. We had a wonderful day of walking the neighborhood, checking out the big yellow school bus, looking for squirrels, chasing lizards and collecting objects of nature (twigs, leaves, flowers, weeds????). : ) So, I think we're good to go for tomorrow! Of course... now I'm the sick one. Fighting a baaaaaad cold still. Can't shake it. Blech.
I sure hope you are all doing better than I feel over here! Until tomorrow!
