Weekend Over

Hello Belle Readers, It has been a semi busy couple of days...or maybe a lazy couple of days I guess, depending on how you look at it. The most important thing is I had two days off from work so at least they were relaxing. Here is a little showing of what I have been up to.
I finally got these two sconces finished. Sorry about the lighting conditions, I couldn't wait to take some pics and it was starting to get dark already. For those who haven't seen the before photo you can see it here. Not sure if I will put it up for sale on eBay or in my Etsy shop, or take it up to the little shop by my house.
These have been keeping me nice and busy. Bought the lot of them on eBay for cheap. They are older issues, but I don't mind that at all. They are still just as beautiful.
Went for a drive earlier today and snapped some photos from the car. This is of the Long Island Sound. I love the stormy sky!!
This adorable little rose bush was a gift from my friend Lorie at work on Tuesday. I love the green stripes on the petals.
This was Pierre yesterday morning. I know better than to put anything on the botton shelf of this hutch. It is one of his favorite places when he's hot and lazy. Right before I took this photo he was happily eating some little strawberries.
We had a nice tea yesterday morning for breakfast. The kids like to go fancy and set the table with a pretty tablecloth and a teaset. This strawberry set was a gift from my Nanna in England. It is Alex's favorite set.
Alex being shy about his morning bed-head and nursing his hot cup of tea.
I finally made a trip to Home Goods Tuesday on my way home from work. This is my new favorite teacup. I love the little dessert plate that goes under the saucer. You can never have too many things with roses on them. I wish they had a whole set of china, but all they had were teasets. Oh well, it's still gorgeous. Glad I found it. I know I'll be stopping in there a lot more often.
That's it for today. Should have another post soon. Maybe for Show and Tell Sunday.

Hi Rebecca
It looks like you had a busy time on your two days off. You have taken some lovely pictures and it is so interesting to see a little snippet of your life. Pierre is so cute! And I agree, you can never have too many things with roses on them. I love the cup and saucer.

I adore your lovely images...looks like you have had a lovely time...your new tea cup and plates are adorable...I saw the same ones in a store by me and almost picked them up! Now I wish I today to check to see if they are still there! You inspire me!

Hi Rebeca! Awesome new set! We used to have one of those stores here but no longer. We are getting one of those large Christmas stores here soon, hope its worth the hype. Very pretty rose, different. When the snow is blowing here in Northern Indiana I love nothing more then a stack of old romantic Homes and Victoria's!Thanks for visiting!! Lori

Now in this post, my favorite is the last cup and saucer you bought at Home Goods. I adore that rosy pattern. Have a fabulous weekend darling.
