Friday Confessional: Busy Weekend with Several Parties, Real and Virtual



It's Friday, and it's time to fess-up with Aubrey @ High-Heeled Love!

I confess...

I confess that I completely over-scheduled this week.  I've had several appointments, and Little Sister has had several activities.  Plus I've been trying to participate in not one but two link parties.  Well, I confess that it isn't going to happen.  I only have time for one, and that one is:


I really wanted to participate in the Christmas in July link party, but I just don't have the time.  *sadface*  I over-scheduled our weekend, too.

Come back tomorrow for my Mad Tea Party post, and venture over to A Fanciful Twist for the Party!  Here's a brief preview:


I didn't want to buy anything for the party other than flowers from the market and food.






I confess...

I confess that I love Amy's designs at Vintage Marketplace.  Have you met Amy?  She's very creative, and her designs are quirkily fun.  :D  Check out the cute flag I bought from her Etsy store:



I confess...

I confess that I already need to reorganize my desk are in the kitchen and the art studio.  Again.  I function really well with a schedule, and I'm making out one for these chores I don't normally do during the course of a week.

I confess...

I confess I love this blush mood board from Anthropologie.  The cool color is perfect for July, and I'd like to paint a painting in these soothing shades.  Wait a minute....I already am!  I'll share my latest painting in about 1 - 2 weeks.  It's almost done.  YAY!


You can see how this mood board influenced my flower choices (see above) while at the market.


Until next time...

Blessings!

    Now, the over-scheduling-we all do it. Don't forget to add in wine time too.

  8. There really should be an option to add a few extra hours to fit in those things that there just wasn't time for. That's been my excuse for having bowed out of blogging for a couple of months. Time flies when you're having fun!

  9. Lovely colors. My week has been very slow with full days at home. I so do not want school to start I am willing it away. It may not come. No I don't want it. Love the warm soft colors. I am pinning away some ideas for changes in the house but the most I have done is clean a couple of closets. Felt good though. I love throwing and donating. I vow never to buy so much crap again.

  10. I confess that I never have mentioned to you that I love you blog header with the splatters of paint.

    I confess that I signed up for Christmas in July and I only have one item finished.

  11. I confess that I fully intended to create a post for the Mad Hatter's Party, but it just didn't happen. I've participated in the past, and it was great fun. I look forward to your Mad Hatter Party. I know it is going to be fabulous! Christmas in July.......that went by the wayside too. Life has kept me busy this summer. Funny how that happens! ~ Sarah

  13. I confess I never seem to get my act together to participate in the Christmas July Party either. And I love everything Christmas! You do manage to read quite a bit which I'm jealous about. I have too many interests I fear. Have a lovely weekend Ricki Jill.

  15. Mad Tea Party sounds like fun, but it's too bad that you didn't get to join in the Christmas in July party too. I love how you always have fresh flowers in your house.

    Thanks for join the Friday Confessional party. Have a fabulous day!
