Beach Time

My little time at the beach was so relaxing...sat out on the beach...did a tad bit of thriftin'...added a few new items to the condo and went along with Mr.CC to take some pics of a new listing (I will share those with you later this week). The weather was just PERFECT...sunny and temps in the high 70's...can't get any better than this...so out to the beach I go with my umbrella, chair and books...all ready for some awesome beach time! I will be sharing some of my thrifty finds with you later on...today lets see what I added to the condo...come along with me and take a look.
                                                       Enjoy your day and I will
                                                          see ya on Monday at
                                                                      NTT,
                                                                     Linda
                                 Made a stop at our local Tuesday Mornings
                                     and found these PB knockoff pillows.
                             They look just like PB's pillows, but without the
                                 PB price tag...these were $19.99...PB's are
                                   $37.00...so I feel like these were a deal!
                                  The true color does not show well...they
                                                are a light green apple!
                                I added this red monogram to a $1.00 glass platter
                                      that I found while out thrifin' last summer
                                       (monogram was won at a giveaway) so,
                                                       total cost $1.00!
                                                                 
                                    Can't go wrong with a $1.00 decor item!

                                                    I have a thing for burlap
                                                       lampshades...guess
                                                         that's not a bad
                                                                thing!
                                            Still way to COLD for a dip here!
                                             But a dip here...is just fine!!!
                                              See me way up there on the
                                                          8th floor?
                                            My little piece of heaven!!!

Hi up there on the 8th floor! Looks like a great view from here. Pillow shopping and sun make for a very relaxing weekend. Love your PB knockoff pillows. I need to head back over to TM :)
We have blue skies and it didn't snow like they predicted so all is well!

I love the monogram decor...very nice. Glad you had a nice warm relaxing day. Spring disappeared here for a few days...just waiting patiently for it to return.

Anita @ GoingALittleCoastal said...

That window with the starfish is really cute. I have to get to Tuesday Morning too so I can look at rugs. I'll be sure to look at the pillows too!

Pam said...

I love the pillow and monogram Linda!

I am totally jealous of your weather! It snowed about 6" here this morning. Ugh! A lot has melted, but I heard that they are expecting another storm tomorrow morning...

Have a great day and enjoy that sun!

Your monogram tray is very sharp! Looks great on the shelf!

Love the lamp! I just re finished a little white lamp with a burlap shade, not nearly as cute as yours. Everything looks amazing, Linda. Oh Summer will be here before we know it!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I just had a moment of green eyed envy...I really could use a dose of beach right now. We have too many stressful things going on all at once. It looks so peaceful, I can almost feel the sand under my feet.

I love the red monogram on the platter...very unique and the color just pops! Pretty!

classic • casual • home said...

I need to remember to pop into Tuesday Morning. Your photos make me miss the East coast. Just did a post about that. Have a great week.

tale of many cities said...
