Owls and things!!!!

So I have recently gotten into 2 things..... OWLS and GARAGE SALE-ing!
The owl thing started on my Virginia Beach last fall when I found this cute owl pitcher at a little shop in Williamsburg. Had to buy it! Had to display it! Which means I tore down my upper cabinets in my kitchen and put up open shelving. Yes... by myself!

Then..... I saw this cute OWL cookie jar on Modern Family and found it at Anthropologie. I WANT IT!!!!!!! Can't have it!!!!!!!!! $128!!!!!!!!!! Can you say OUCH?!!!!
So I've been hitting the garage sales. Found this:

Think I saw it on That 70's show....

Also found some cute things for my shelves including the other white pitcher and blue juicer in the picture above!

Also these cool vintage lawn chairs just yesterday...


And.... just got back from another fun trip with my girlfriend Holly! We went to Turks and Caicos. An island chain in the carribbean. Part of the British West Indies (or something). It was crazy beautiful there! We stayed at the all inclusive Club Med (adults only)! We snorkeled and ate in grand style, did a little sailing and the highlight of the trip was just laying in hammocks on the beach and reading and relaxing!!!!!!!! My camera broke mid trip so I didn't get a lot of pics but you can see how nice it was. The water was turqoise and the sand soft and white!!
I better get a new camera before my next big trip!!


Then............ in August I went with the fam to stay at Atlantis (again) in the Bahamas!! So fun!!!! The best part was being around my kids and grandkids!!

Also did some traveling..... in May I went on a little girls trip with, well, my sista's! Kelly and Holly. We went to stay at a beautiful house on a lake in upstate NY. And visited Niagra Falls and Palmyra. It was a very relaxing and fun trip!!
