I was playing around on Facebook on August 20 when a message popped up on my screen from a friend who said she had been in WINNERS and spotted Yellow Submarine luggage. The next day right after work my hubby and I booted it over to the store and low and behold they had all three pieces there. I was sooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited!!!!!!!!!!! As you can see, I bought all three!
I had seen this luggage online in the UK and it was for double the amount I paid at WINNERS.
By the way, did you know I LOVE everything to do with the Yellow Submarine? teehee!
Even the kittens had to come out and check on the luggage. :)

We had another wind storm, it wasn't as bad as last years, but it was still bad. It started around 12am in the morning and rocked on for most of the day. We had wind gusts up to 100 km an hour. Our power flicked off and on through the night. It was hard to sleep worrying about things blowing off the house or into it. We were very lucky. Woke up around 7am and put on a pot off coffee. I tried to access the internet but it was down. Had our first cup around 7:30am and then shortly after our power went out. It was off for like 2-3 hours and the wind rocked on. I looked outside and saw that our gazebo had somehow been pushed over and bent the top of the frame.

As you know, I LOVE everything to do with the Beatles' YELLOW SUBMARINE!!! After finding an unfinished table at a local thrift store I knew what I had to do - paint my own Yellow Submarine table!! I used the colours: lime green, purple, yellow, red & black. I LOVE IT!!!!!
Now, I was introduced to the fabulous website PINTEREST - it is Heaven!!!!! All the wonderful pictures & ideas. I was so inspired by the following:
I was looking through photos one day and came across a sign someone had painted that stated something about Dog's Nose Art. We don't own any dogs, but we do own SIX cats, so I turned to my husband and said I HAVE to paint my own sign. I located a piece of wood that I had downstairs, again something from a thrift store years ago and couldn't figure out what to paint on it and after seeing the Dog's Nose Art sign, I knew what to paint on it. Again, I have to use funky colours and paint. So here is what I painted. :o)
And again, searching through Pinterest this morning looking for an idea to hang necklaces. I liked the ideas they had for using picture frames, but I own A LOT of necklaces. Over the years I have bought, been given as gifts and inherited some gorgeous necklaces, so the picture frame idea was out. Then it popped into my head - I have a gorgeous rustic ladder I purchased at a yard sale a few years back at my aunt's house. I fell in love with it when I saw it and decided to place it out on our front porch. I brought it in and started placing the necklaces on it. LOOKS AWESOME!! Yaaaa, my own Pinterest Idea!!!
