Back to School Shopping!!??!!

Well, despite having a long list of painting projects I wanted to start today, we spent the day SHOPPING!!  Shopping for back to school uniforms, shopping for back to school shoes, shopping for back to school supplies, and shopping for back to school lunch food for our three boys.  Well, I couldn't resist shopping for a back to school something for myself, and this lovely bouquet of flowers caught my eye!!!  Here you see pictures of the flowers in a old wooden box I picked up at the flea market (man, was I sweating that day, as it was heavier carrying around than I thought it would be), the bicycle in the pictures was a lovely curbside find, and the old quilt is over 100 years old.

Here's a little sneak peak at some Chinese Lanterns from my garden.  I look forward to lots of fall decorating using them.

Hope you enjoyed this little back to school/fall is coming bouquet.  I am so excited to have so many new followers looking at my blog and want to tell you all how much it means to me that you take the time to look, enjoy and leave your comments!!!!

P.s. Love the quilt and the bike, too!

Hello Janis, your flowers are beautiful! I love the 100 year old quilt, and what a curbside treasure you found! That old bicycle is great!... I am loving that Autumn is here... my favorite time of year, and we seem to have more tag sales this time of year as well... still searching for my mirror... Bisous... Julie Marie

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I have two boys and back to school shopping is not fun. No uniforms, just crazy boy clothes. It's one of the few times I wish I had girls!
