rustic monday


Today I'm in the mood for unfinished, rustic, and washed-wood furniture. I don't have any but I've kept my eyes open for a narrow table to use in the hallway. Just haven't found one yet.

The children are back to school. I thought it would be so hard to wake them up this morning but they were amazingly fresh and seemed to welcome the daily routine. Let's see how fresh they'll be when I pick them up!

Hubby is leaving us for Cannes, which I find simply plain cruel. [If the big boss is reading this, which I doubt, then I would like to suggest a new company policy: no employee goes to Cannes without the spouse.] Well, he'll be back tomorrow. I wouldn't mind walking the streets of Cannes, taking photos, eating and drinking French anything and breathing in the sea air. sigh

Are you up to anything special on this Monday?

  6. I seriously envy your Mr. Big time. I suspect he'd be busy working, but still...
    On the other hand, you live in such a beautiful place where I wouldn't mind waking up on a daily basis. :)
    Wishing you a wonderful week, darling! x

  12. A new company policy is definitely required. I love the rustic room in the 1st pic, especially the table. I used to draw a lot when I was in school and it reminds me of that. :)
