Yes, I actually did remember to change out boxes last weekend. I just didn’t sit down in time to do a post before midnight. Night after night. Tonight I said, “The heck with it!” And I’m putting up a post even though it is already 11 pm.
I’m dealing with money issues, which stresses me out, so I haven’t been sleeping well. And that means getting to sleep late and getting up late unrested and running like crazy through my evenings. Ugh. To add insult to injury, on my way home from delivering Spider Bait to an end of season barn party tonight, I hit a deer. In the head. I’m not sure if it was a really small deer or was coming up the bank on to the road. I didn’t see anything till I hit it. I knocked it off the road, that much I know, but it was too dark to see much. And there was no way in hell I was stopping on that stretch of road in the dark. I didn’t want to wind up like the deer. So I drove the car to where there were lights and found out we will be spending more money on car repairs. And our house and car insurance is due. And school and property taxes. I am not having much fun here at the moment.
And on that cheerful note, here are my June things minus, of course, all the mugs.
A Cracker Barrel purchase many moons ago. Hurray for Christmas cash!
I think I got this at Pier One. I fell in love with the purple glass. It’s a small lantern, maybe 6 inches high. Just big enough for a tealight. I like to put it on the end table of the couch so I can watch the light through the purple panes.
This serving for one was a gift from my Mother-in-law. I love that it has a saucer. It can be used with the cup or to hold a piece of cake.
A birthday money purchase from Target, I think. I have a thing for lanterns and I love this silver and pale blue combination. It’s about a foot high and looks better with a votive, even though inside it is set up for tealight. I just set a votive holder inside on top of the tealight holder.
See how tall it is? And, yes, I cleaned my table off again. Though it’s starting to look a little shabby with ‘stuff’ again 4 days on.
My mother went to Denmark one year to visit a friend and brought this back for me. A Danish teapot from a Danish manufacturer.
This is another Cracker Barrel purchase. It’s called ‘Blue Bliss’. The teapot set and the mug came separately. I’m sure you’ve seen the mug in my Mug of the Day spot. This is the teapot that goes with it. I keep the mug on my mug rack all year because it is one of my favorites.
And into the cupboard they go. I don’t remember if it was intentional or not, but this was definitely a ‘blue’ month! 🙂
And while I’m still working on making ‘me’ time a regular aspect of my day, I did manage to take time to make a cake.
Butter Cream Cheese Coffee Cake. Mmmm. (Yeah, we hit that pretty hard the first day. 🙂 )
Ooooo, I might actually get this up -before- midnight! Night, all!
