Hello Friends! I am sorry I have been away so long! It was definitely a little longer than intended, but we did have a fantastic visit with our family and friends. I have a couple of close friends who are pregnant and I probably won't get to see them again before their sweet little babes are born, so I was very glad to have this opportunity to catch up! It was a low key visit and I was sure to get in a couple of solid naps! Oh, and I did some fantastic thrift shopping with my mother in law. I can't wait to show you my finds!

As much as being away is lovely, it is always so nice to be home. I was happy to be back in our little cottage and to get a some cuddles with our sneaky cat. I also had fun finding new homes for all of my thrift store finds. Anyway, it's been pretty rainy here, but the other day we had some beautiful sun and it made me so excited for spring. I went out in our yard and was exploring and thinking about gardening and I happened upon a pretty little pink, blooming bush. It was pretty scraggly, so I cut a couple of the branches and put them inside. I put some in our kitchen and some in our bedroom.

In this photo you can see one of my finds- a lovely little cotton apron that looks as though it has never been used. It has the prettiest lace details and pockets. I'm in love! (Oh, and don't mind the ugly hole in the wall :)

And here are the blossoms in the bedroom...

I don't think that I have ever shown you pictures of our bedroom, so I guess this is a little sneak peak. I actually found a few things for our room while we were away, so I'll give you a tour soon! I've never been totally happy with our room, but I'm starting to like it more.

Anywho, time for me to get ready for work! Have a fantastic Tuesday friends!
