Like many of you this week, I found myself at the Mall doing some back to school shopping with my teenager. All good fun! Rachel and I had a good laugh because we found ourselves spending most of our time at the food court enjoying some fish tacos. Typical! I was surprised when rounding one familiar corner to find that Restoration Hardware was gone. Sadness. But seeing that my house has been furnished for many years now, not a huge loss for me. Especially when I weigh in its replacement. It was a store called "Cozy Cottage" and here is what greeted passing shoppers:
Oh Joy! What incredible festiveness!
I love the spider web tablecloth on the white table and all the hanging placards, "I'd Turn Back If I Were You!"
Dear little owls with yellow eyes!
I know most of you are still relishing summer and all it's bounty. I should be too. But I must confess, Back to School has filled me with a certain degree of anxiety. And looking forward to one of my favorite holidays helps with that a lot. Is it too early to plan costumes?
