Time Flies...


I don't know about you - but this is how our summer is shaping up around here...



The kids seem to have no concept of time anymore and love to sleep in 'til all hours. Breakfast now seems to be at noon and lunch at 3:00 p.m. Very dangerous habits to get into!


Old film reels are my muse right now...the old clock faces I have been salvaging and hoarding fit nicely in the centers...



Another lock in the shop! ...



And here are a couple of more brown and blue shots for Shades of Inspiration...



I picked up this old wicker suitcase with leather strap for a song at Value Village!



This weekend we are heading to an antique show and sale in Odessa, Ontario which is just outside of historic Kingston. I can't wait to see the offerings! The kids are coming too so we have to make compromises - they put up with us at the show and we put up with them at the hotel pool.


Sounds fair. :)

Joy..sounds like our summer...it is 12:30 and my son is still snoozing. LOL
I have to say..you are so creative..your ideas keep coming and they just amaze me. Now I am not a copy cat but I might have to try a couple of your ideas....not your Hope jars. I know those are exclusively yours and they are terrific.
I promise you won't see anything on ebay or my website either. I just have an old clock without a face and I thought I would try a family photo in it.
Love your website...I may have to shop again, soon. My Paris pin is in my room next to a shabby poodle.
Take care and have fun at shopping and watching the kids swim too.

Sounds fair to me! LOL! Compromise is a good thing!

If having one of those clocks justifies the non existent schedule, then I need to get one (the clock, I'm not ready for the school schedule!) Your new hairdo is great! Great looking family and those blue eyes are gorgeous.

I really find the lack of schedule in the summer difficult to deal with.

Have fun this weekend. I hope you find lots of fun things!

What a cute idea for the clock and reel. I definitely understand the idea of compromise. I've been doing it for years with my kids too. Have fun!
