Hello All and Happy Monday!
I arrived in Florida yesterday on a little break and it is beautiful! I came down with my son since he is out for a winter break this coming week. We are staying with my parents in Panama City Beach. I haven’t been here in a while and I had forgotten how amazing the beaches are in the panhandle of Florida. Sugar white sand, emerald green waters and sunshine – it doesn’t get any better! However … there was a little problem. My parents are on the 20th floor – I am deathly afraid of heights.
So I get off the elevator on floor 20 and don’t realize that the hallways are open balconies.
I immediately drop to the ground with my eyes closed. Please keep in mind that I am not the most limber girl in the world and once I hit the ground – getting up might not be so easy. My mom (in her southern accent) yells “get up FOOL!” But, I can’t – so she has to lead me by the sound of her voice into the condo. Not my proudest moment.
Then I saw the view … wow! Of course I could not take these pics … 20th floor remember!
For those of you who know me – you probably know how much I like owls. Much to the chagrin of my daughter who is scared to death of owls (related to some horror movie I told her not to watch – teens are such good listeners). Anyway … my mom always surprises me with the most unique and spectacular gifts and this trip was no different. Check out my haul … I’m a lucky girl!
How cute is this owl lamp? The owl is tin as well as the sage green shade. The owl is sitting on a wooden pedestal. I love love love it!
See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil! Are you kidding? Are these not the coolest things ever? Speak No Evil is kinda my mantra … I have a bad habit of letting my thoughts fly without thinking sometimes. Oops … !
This pillow is made of burlap. My new favorite decorating fabric. It is rustic, cottage, farmhouse and traditional. Look at the orange … color of the year! Awesome!
Spectacular frame! Burlap bows … so cool! If you look real close – the plexiglass is held up by tiny little nails. I think I can attempt to make this … I’ll let you know.
Seriously! Owls in bling! This is an old brooch pinned to this bow. Some people are such geniuses in their craft! This frame will have a place of prominence in my office!
One more … just cuz I love it soooo much!
Cute girlie birds in orange and yellow! I am going to name them Lucy and Ethel. Don’t they look like they are getting ready to get into some trouble?
I will be hanging this by my door to the garage as a reminder to all! Hilarious!
Are those the best gifts or what? I was thrilled! I want to also give a big blog shout out to my sister – Happy Birthday!! Hope your day is Wonderful!
Hope your life is more heaven than havoc!
