Monday, monday..........


Donna over at "47th street designs" tagged me to do the picture post tag....you know, find the fourth pic in the fourth folder and describe it......so let's see what we get. Oh, this is the head of the household here at SI's Casa......my dear, sweet, diy-er hubby. Here, he is painting the faccia boards and such so we can have a new gutter installed along the back of the house. The old one was wrecked when Ike blew the tree over on our house!!!
Oh, and I'm supposed to tag four other bloggers to play along.......will you join in the fun?
I'll pick:

My friend Lorri at
http://chocojavaeuromom.blogspot.com (she's got GREAT Europe pics!)

Paula at
http://virginiasweetpea.blogspot.com (she is very creative in lots of ways and has a gorgeous garden!)

Serah at

http://honeysuckleandcupcakes.blogspot.com (has an adorable little guy!)
and my fourth:
my new friend at New Day, NewSeason......
http://newdaynewseason.blogspot.com (a new blogger who can use some bloggy traffic and love!)

Onto other pleasant things, I visited the Pottery Barn last week and while scoping out the bargains, found some oh so nice goodies to bring home from their 75% off area! Wahoo! I love Pottery Barn at 75% off!! So here's what I got. It wall all in the holiday clearance section, but being the practical SI that I am, I scored the bargains that will work for other things than just the Christmas holidays....my favorite is a red/cream polka dotted runner. It was called a snowflake tablerunner, but much like the snow here in our area, the snow is NON-Existent.....I'd rather have polka dots anyway! I also got some mercury glass chubby candlesticks, some silver STAR plates, three pink tinted mercury glass votive holders, and some green/white striped grograin ribbon! Jill, you know how we love our ribbon!
So just take a peek at what I got!! You might want to take a little blogging break and run over to see what's left for you!

I love your 4th of the 4th picture. Your man was hard at work.

I wish we had a Pottery Barn close by. You found some great things.

So blessed! said...

Don't you just love Pottery Barn...wish we had one close by. Thanks for tagging me...I am going to get right on that. Sounds like fun!

Oh, I'm so jealous. I don't have a Pottery Barn anywhere near me, so I'm reduced to paying shipping for stuff that I must have and cannot live without. Kind of defeats the purpose of clearance stuff, doesn't it? I'm in love with those polka dots too! :)

Paula said...

Isn't it nice to have a hubbby who can fix things himself?

I wish that there was a Pottery Barn close to me. I think that I've only been in that store once in my life. You found some really great bargains.

Nancy said...

You got some great things! Some of it will be great at Valentine day. Blessings,Nancy

Ha! Love the picture. It's fun to see what comes up, isn't it? Thanks for playing along.

You did find some great things at Pottery Barn. We have one fairly close, but don't seem to get in there really often. I would be looking for the sales!
