I saw this vintage iron tiered basket set. And it spoke to me. And I decided it needed to be my first new purchase for my next new house. On sale for around $45. Just like my clock. Only this time I didn't wince at the checkout counter. :)
You all know I have a thing for baskets. (I was reminded of how many I have when I had to move one basket out of the way to take a picture of the new one!) And to be honest, I have NO place for this in my house right now. I am just going to patiently wait until I get into my new house and then find its purpose!
I can use it to hold bathroom essentials like it is displayed in the PB catalog,
Or for fruit in the kitchen like my current tiered baskets. Or maybe for scrapbook supplies in my office... SO many possibilities! I get giddy just thinking about it. :)
And if none of those ideas work, Ellie pointed out that it would make the perfect home for her Littlest Petshops. I have to admit, that cat does look nice and cozy.
Another fun purchase I made months ago - this organizer for my kitchen...
Today was our first day of summer and Ellie spent in on the beach! She is doing her lifeguard camp again (pics are from last summer) so she is one happy girl. And my car is one sandy mess. As it will be for the next two weeks.
I managed to keep my other two entertained. A living room fort was made just in time for Kole to destroy it. (So glad to see Kenny's law school books finally being put to good use.)
While Kole napped, I balanced my checkbook and Addison made necklaces. Then I decided her project look a lot more fun than mine so I joined her. We paraded around the rest of the day in our new jewelry. Addison told me when I put her to bed that "the necklaces stayed fashionable all day long."
That they did. :)
I turned on my go to for music - "Pandora" - internet radio on the TV. I have it set to play "Lenka" music. I love Lenka and it plays not only her songs but anything else that sounds at all similar to her. I did a little cleaning...
reviewed my house plans for the thousandth time...
and attempted to organize my mountains of new house stuff that I still need to go through.
On tomorrow's agenda:
Tackle the homework drawer. Things got a little crazy the last few weeks of school!
And the craft drawer. Which clearly needs some love before the kids can get creative this summer.
But I'm so happy that summer is finally here.
