Monday, Monday

Hi friends, hope you had a great weekend!  It was feeling like fall here & I even busted out boots.  Then temps hit the high 70s again for the weekend so I busted out flip flops.  My toes are confused.  Meanwhile......

* My crazy wonderful gal pal Shelley invited me to be a part of her fun series Inside My Bag.  Girlfriend's DIY, decorating, & creative talents have no limits; check them out!  Today, I'm sharing the innards of my purse with the blog world.  I did do a preliminary cleaning so you won't see any empty wine bottles (those are in the recycle bin; my recycle guy hates me).  Would love to see you over there.  Also, follow her on Instagram if you 're into laughing & being inspired.  Thanks a million for having me, Shelley!

* Speaking of DIY, I've been crafting these little blooms for an upcoming project.  I'm so excited for it.  My house is not so pretty right now so I'm hoping everything falls into place soon.  Magical thinking? ;-)

* For the love of blogging.  I wholeheartedly agree.  You said it, sister!

* Have you heard about The Company Store's partnership with the Avon Foundation for Women?  They've launched the Comfort Crusade: for every one of their LaCrosse comforters sold throughout the month of October, $5 will be donated to The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. These funds will advance access to quality breast health care, research towards prevention and understanding metastatic breast cancer, and ultimately find a cure.  When there's a chance like this to get involved (in any capacity) to help women out there, no effort's too small in my humble opinion.  Thank you to all, for helping to improve the lives of women & their families. *

Hope your day is a good one!

*I did not receive compensation for this post.  I just believe in spreading the word about an amazing program that helps a cause near & dear to my heart.


  1. Ha, good thing we don't live next door to each other. The recycle guy would boycott the neighborhood! LOL Loving the sneak peek of the blooms. Love your profile pic!! Okay, heading over to see what is really stashed in that purse.

  2. The girls commented to me last week that I had more beer bottles than usual in my recycle bin. At least I'm teaching them to take care of the earth. Off to read your guest post. :)

  3. My recycle guy hates us too.
    Love the flowers and can't wait to see what they are for.

  4. You are so sweet :) Cannot wait to see what you have in store for those flowers!

  5. Alright, lady! I'm going to need a tutorial for those flowers stat. Or better yet, could you just send some my way. #noshameinmygame Haha! :-)
