~need a little getaway?~

Happy Friday my friends!


yep, it is definitely my favorite day
of the week.....love my Fridays....
and guess what?  the sun is peeking out
from the fog....it's gonna be sunny today!!
yay!! :)

well, we're winding down here at the Linen Shoppe...
only a few more orders to finish & then it's
r*e*l*a*x*


and I think that's why I'm so drawn to this
today....this escape....

~*~

because....
~we've had a lot of Christmas....yes?
~we've seen a lot of crafts....yes?
~we've got our lists written, shopping
done (what?? I do?), been crafting away,
decorating away, baking & fluffing,
wrapping & stuffing....and now....


....we need a little break....
we need a little nap....
right here....


with the window open...
and the soft breeze drifting in...
with the faint smell of lavender....
ahhhh......

and maybe a little bubble bath?
and a little toe painting?


those always go hand & hand with me...
bubble baths & toe painting....

oh wow....take a look at those travertine floors
up there.....oh my....I cannot get enough
travertine!!! 


ok...can you be in love with a sink?
because I seriously am....{and there we have more
travertine too...ahhh....}

shall we make a 'fresh from the garden' salad?
because it's the middle of summer ya know?
add a little fresh herbs?


we can sit in here....or
here


or here...I'm thinking we better go out here....
and soak up a little sun.....


when we're done eating our lunch & sipping
on lemon water....

maybe we'll feel like reading a great book...
or thumbing through several hundred
magazines....


or pinning a few pins...hee hee

{now, I'm trying to keep the techy stuff
outta here on this little getaway ~ so
I'm thinking we're unplugged...all the way...}
I know scary...

but who needs to be pinning when we can
soak up this view??
and breathe the fresh air?


I'm thinking a little walk would be perfect about right now...


maybe there's a cute little market down
the road....where we can pick up yummy stuff
for dinner? 
some fresh bread?
and cheese & fruit?
{I could be perfectly content eating baguettes,
cheese & fruit...forever...period.}

maybe there's a darling little hole in the wall
antique place....to browse about....


and when we're all tuckered out...
and ready to come back...
we'll make some dinner here....


and then relax by the fire....
ahhhh......


I don't want to wake you up.....
I'll just quietly sneak away~
and wish you a wonderful weekend....



xoxo,



Shellagh
