My girlfriend Amy took me out for a mental health day last week after our latest contractor mess. The leaves are hitting their peak color and the undulating hills are giving perfect fall ruffles. You could smell the sweet hint of wet leaves in the cool wind. The days when you feel more comfortable outside than inside in the artificial air. We could have walked for hours but the kids school hours were calling us home.
Beside the wonderful weather...we hit an antique mall on the way home. One that I speed walked through. Remembering Amy would rather clean toilets than antique but she would never tell me that. Such a wonderful friend. I grabbed this handful and couldn't be stop smiling.

1950's Tinkerbell spot on for my very own "Tink" aka our Claire. For years we have been saying "It is a good thing she is so pretty because she is so naughty!"
Pink blossomed playing cards.
Bunnies, Ducks and Santa Claus...
A red dotty tablecloth the size of a card table. Layered in the luck of the four leaf clover. Luck is certainly something I need...to get these painters moving and off our home. Never fear, another mental health day will be necessary soon. The very bright painters decided they could paint yesterday. Then it rained 3 inches. Now I have all the paint that they painted on my mulch, shrubs, driveway...basically everywhere but the house. There has been a lot of camera use at this house and not just for the blog.
This too shall pass...just as quickly as the snow falls.
Linking up to Rednesday, finally!
