Backyard Abroad

Remember... if you'd like to be part of the Yellow Rose Umbrella Giveaway, add a comment to the post below. I can't wait to see what everyone does. Have you been noticing yellow roses everywhere lately? I have =) For those of you who don't care for blog music, I apologize. I heard this song over at Daisy Cottage and read her lovely story. I just wanted to share the song with you for a little while. Do you prefer blog music or no?
The curtains are done!! YAY! However, I realized that I can't hang them because I don't have any more clips at the house. Figures, huh?! Well, tomorrow is my freedom day when I only have one child (for a few hours of the afternoon) so maybe I can pick some up then.

I did break away for about a 1/2 hour yesterday evening. Hubby and I had run to the store and realized we were right next door to an antiques shop. They have a pretty nice website (for our area anyways) and it'll give you an idea of the size of the place (hmm, they sell on ebay too). Very upscale and too pricey for us but I did manage to get a few small French tapestries for some sewing projects. I love having a camera in my cell phone! Too bad all the photos are a bit dark. This place is a 3 story warehouse. Absolutely amazing. The owner says he travels abroad every two months! How? I want to know the secret!

Well my printer has been out of ink for several days now so today I'll be printing shipping labels until my eyes cross. Have a beautiful Tuesday!
