Day 940's week in pictures

I have even fewer pictures to show this week than last! I don't know what I did with myself last week since I obviously didn't use my camera. I did make pancakes on Monday morning. Poor Wes had work, so I went a little crazy doctoring my Bisquick mix with things he won't eat. Like lots of cinnamon and pecans. YUM!

Wes' sister got married over the weekend. I'm still sorting through all of the pictures I took, but this one turned out nicely. We (the bridesmaids) got to ring the church bell (this is the rope) before the ceremony started -- it was so fun!

I did buy that portrait I mentioned on Friday. It was 40% off -- sweet! I don't think it's too creepy, but maybe it is. For now I kind of like it hanging between the silk curtains in the living room. I'm pretty sure it's a reproduction of one of the masters, but I really don't know that much about art (nor have I spent the time to figure it out.) Off the top of my head I'm thinking Rembrandt. Laura, thoughts?

To start, this is my first time reading your blog, and I must tell you how much I love it! I love every single picture you have found and Cottage Living is one of my favorite magazines.

By the way, I saw the picture of your cat curled up. Adorable. We have a cat who frequents our blog, also :)

Thanks for sharing!

You are right, it's Rembrandt! Check out my post today for more details about your girl.


Laura - I do estate sales in Virginia and just noticed you have a copy of I Married Adventure by Osa Johnson in this tablescape photo. Hold on to it friend... If its a first edition with the book jacket its worth about $300!
