Time for the pink flamingos to fly back to Florida.

I'm battening down the hatches today and hauling all my summer porch decor back down to the basement.

Maybe a tad, but once Labor Day weekend hits, it's all downhill from here.

Yep, it's on to pumpkins and cornstalks and chili with cornbread for me.

And maybe roomier pants if I eat too much cornbread.

Are you calling it a summer already?

Or are you hanging onto your flip flops for dear life?

5 Random Thoughts On Randomness Part II

I'm having another scattered brained thoughts kind of day here, so I thought I'd just run with it.

Random Thought #1 - I bought my first mum of the year.

Yard Sale Makeover No. 4 - Milk Glass Succulent Planter

Not sure if you call these candy dishes or planters or cat bowls. So I'm calling it a milk glass thingie.

You can buy one of these milk glass thingies at practically any thrift store in any city on any day. I found mine at a yard sale though and it's part of my Yard Sale Makeover series.
