Glorious 4th (and the 4 days that I have off!)

It felt super wonderful and oh so not like me to sleep in this morning. When I awoke at 9:00 I enjoyed Gideon's morning nuzzles and kisses, welcomed Harleigh in to snuggle and chat, and didn't feel one bit guilty that I'd "lost" a good 3 hours of morning productivity.

Once up I ran some errands, went thrifting, and met Harleigh for lunch. Afterwards I got fabric to make my ken curtains. Lavender gingham. Doesn't go with a thing in my kitchen or ken, but as of late I've been super inspired by decorating that goes out on a limb with colors and gives off a homey, English-countryside, thrown-together kind of feel. And if lavender gingham makes me feel happy, then that's what my kitchen curtains are gonna be made out of. Pix to come.

Here is a rusty orange watering can that I found this morning on my thrifting rounds. With flowers it makes a pretty statement in the soon-to-be-infused-with-color ken.
