Slackers Rule?

My wonderful husband stained our new shelves for the breezeway (without even being asked!) Later, when I looked at the top shelf from a stool, this is what I found.

Haha Jim, very funny.

Went shopping at the big antique shop here in town. Why is it that I either find absolutely nothing or a ton of things I can't afford and/or carry out of there?

I'm not sure what I'll do with the few items I bought yet, but they, ummmm, "spoke to me"?

This lamp needs to be rewired and I'll probably get rid of the red glass. Other than that, I'm open to suggestions. :)

I'm liking little metal thingies lately. I'm thinking these might be good for the breezeway. I'll probably paint them something bright and summery.

I also bought a decorated window, but I'm having trouble getting a good picture. I'll try again after lunch.

Oh! And I found two of these in the IKEA dollar bin....

Unexpected Inspiration

While driving around after a conference in Bloomington, we found this wonderful Tibetan Buddhist Monastery...

I wish I had mustered up enough guts to take a closer look.
