Quiet Saturday Morning

It's an absolutely beautiful Saturday morning here.  Sunny and crisp outside.  Quiet and peaceful inside.

Hubby's gone to play a round of golf.  Son No. 3 is still in bed.  
And I have a new stack of reading material.  

Romantic Homes.  One of my favorites of all the "romantic" decor style magazines.

At first I was going to take my cup of vanilla biscotti coffee and the pile of new mags outside on the deck, but it was still just a bit too nippy.  So, I decided I'd venture off to a place I rarely visit . . . well, rarely visit for the purposes of relaxing, that is.  

The living room or sitting room.  

Off I went.  
I plopped into one of the soft, oversized chairs, threw my feet up on the ottoman, and got lost for a while within the pages of all that new inspiration. 

And, yes, that's a tattoo on my ankle.  That was my "turning-40-midlife-crisis-I-need-to-do-something-crazy" moment.  

Joy!  The new issue of Country French.

Always a great source for cute and quick paper crafting ideas.

Oh be still my heart . . . the new PB and Ballard catalogs.  Well, not fresh off the presses, but they've been in my mail basket for a while and I'm just now getting to them.

What a nice way to start out the day.  
Why don't I come in here more often?

Thanks for visiting!
Leave a comment so I can get to know you.

I just finished looking through that new Country French magazine, Carla. Yesterday I did my subscriptions for Romantic Home and Romantic Country. I put that off until we had moved because I know they wouldn't have made it from NY to Ohio! It sounds like you had some good "me time".

Sounds like a great way to spend the morning.
I too love to read over magazines, get inspired and relax.

Have a great weekend!

Ahh I feel so relaxed now! I love all those magazines, so much inspiration.

Beautiful here is KY too, think that means your good weather is destined to hold out another day.

Hi Carla,

I hope you enjoyed your quiet and relaxing Saturday. It was gorgeous here this past weekend - Indian summer. I wish the leaves stayed this color all year round.
