music, rainbows and pinterest...

i'm always looking to add to my itunes playlist. today i downloaded the following songs:

at this point, i can listen to these songs over and over again!

curious, if you happened to see the rainbow today?

ironically, here in chicago i could see only the LEFT side of the rainbow. meanwhile friends in Virginia posted a photo showing only of the RIGHT side of the rainbow! pretty cool, huh!

certainly not every day you run into one of these beauties! ha! ha!

sorry, couldn't resist sharing this pin from pinterest:

...sorry, couldn't resist! love it, lol!

it's here and i'm off....

it's FINALLY here...
what do you think? looks fabulous, doesn't it?

yes, that is my garage! excuse the mess in the background, lol!

i love it, can't wait to put it in my living room when we move. there's just no room for it right now so it will remain in the garage with a majority of the rest of my belongings, lol!

here's a look inside the secretary, doesn't my lamp look fabulous! i bought the brass lamp about 10 years ago at an estate sale back home in grosse pointe. although, yesterday i had to take the to over the lamp shop to have the on/off switch replaced. the switch fell apart while i was taking it out to the garage. thankfully it's an inexpensive fix!
the owner of the lamp shop thought the lamp might be a baldwin brass? it's quite heavy and i'd be curious to find out the value of it? i think i paid $75.00 ten years ago? either way, it's not going anywhere and looks awesome on my new antique mahogany secretary!

also, before i forget i wanted to show you a few pieces of my mackenzie-childs knob collection. i have others but these are the ones from the dresser and end table in our guest bedroom.!

oh well, this afternoon i am heading to the green bay packers/chicago bears football game over at solider field! joy! joy! joy! i'd rather watch the detroit lions but my husband suprised me with a ticket to the game, so i guess i have no choice! lol!

it's suppose to rain so it will be a great day to break in my new hunter boots!
