I added this pillow to my collection.
Yes, bought at Pier 1. It's on clearance right now.
It was just too pretty to pass up.
I'm moving other things around in the living room too.
I'll show next week.
I just love the colors on that vintage globe.
Although, everyone points out that it does not go with my decor.
Thanks to all of you who tried to cheer me after I said I was depressed from after the 4th.
I know why I get that way...and after all these years now...I just can't shake the feeling.
It's because my Mother taught school.
Fourth of July always meant that she would start thinking about going back to school.
August first she would be in full swing preparing for it.
I hated when school started up because of this.
Personally, I liked school and didn't mind going back.
But my Mom going back meant all Mother duties went on the back burner.
My Dad was miserable. He hated when she went back and if Dad was unhappy...we were all unhappy.
Not that he did anything....but he complained and was irritable.
And Mom was tired all the time.
My Mom has been retired now for nine years, but I still get that dreaded feeling of
the end of summer coming.
I wonder if I'll ever get over it?
Back to School signs send shivers down my spine.
I hate them sooo much.
