hi there...

it's been a little while... i had every intention of making a "random things going on around here" post last week... but then i got sick on wednesday and that was the end of that notion... today is the first day since then that i've actually been up and moving about...

blah... being sick is not fun... 

prior to being knocked down i had the chance to do some fun things... 

like stopping back in at my favorite antique stores... ichabod's treasures and lou berry's... walked out of there with two things i had to have... i'm telling you... if you're local, you have to stop in...
i have been looking for a blue mason jar for a pretty long time... a happy find for me...
and as soon as i saw this laundry cart i knew i couldn't leave it behind... do i leave it this color or paint it a light aqua?  i'm kind of swaying towards the aqua... thoughts???

i've seen these cute bowls in little 
boutique-y stores before... guess where i found these ones... giant eagle... who knew?  if i only had an extra $29.99 they would have been in my cart :)...

i recently attended a cupcake tasting at the B&O station in downtown youngstown... such a neat place... and the cupcakes were fantastic... i won this pretty daisy print from the silent auction... it's for my friend keri... she's going to love it...

operation weight loss was slightly derailed by this roasted red pepper and fresh mozzarella sandwich from jimmy's... once again local friends... if you've never been to jimmy's,  you've been missing out... it's an italian specialties store that has a HUGE bakery selection {tiramisu and turtle cheesecake... torrone...}... they also have a hot foods counter, a wonderful sandwich selection, pepperoni rolls, homemade pizza... hand-tossed salads... it's all de-lish!!!

barnes and noble is one of my favorite places to go when i have a little free time... i stop at the starbucks counter... then i scan the newest magazines... and then i head over to my favorite section and sit down right in the aisle...
this cover... loved the colors... loved the title... it came home with me...
here's an exercise from one of the pages... i had to choose five colors that i'm drawn to... mute them down with white and create a pattern... it's all about getting inspired... i'm really liking it... a fun activity book for this kid at heart :)...

and this show right here... 
how in the world have i waited so long to tune into this?  now i'm trying to play catch up... i am hooked... and fascinated with the clothing... how pretty are all of the hats?... i think they need to make a comeback... or maybe i'll have to have a downton get together and hats will be required... that might be kinda fun ;)...

and finally... meet madison... our cat... and my study partner...

which speaking of studying... i need to get back to that... i have an exam on wednesday...  wish me luck! 

have a happy day~
