matter the most monday

the little things that matter to me today...
1. sleeping in after a late night of U2 and lots of traffic
2. family who are willing to babysit, or rather, spend time with the little people in their family
3. a husband who loves me
4. disney dvds and an afternoon nap
5. this happy place in my life

what little things matter the most to you today? please share!

and because i just can't get enough bargains...i am participating in junkin monday today...

i discovered junkin' monday over at Cottage Charm and Family Inspiration while reading Coastal Charm so if you are feeling the need for a "beachy" feel, check out both of these great blogs.
since i am going with the little things on mondays,  trying to keep sight of the little things in life that count, here are a few of my little treasures i've discovered at recent garage sales that i will post for the junkin' monday post...

i love this mini clock - - purchased a box of vintage barbie/doll house furniture for $10 and this clock stays near me - the twins got the rest to play with and oh how i love when they choose the older doll furniture over the new piece - maybe the love for the old and treasured is a genetic trait i've passed down...
thrift store bottle - $3

a pair of baby shoes found at a garage sale for $1.00 and a birds nest that was in a fake potted plant - out went the plant and pot and i saved the bird nest. i love this unexpected combination and keep it on my mantel.

have a great monday all!


  1. Hi! This is my first Junkin' Monday! Love that little clock, the amber bottle, and the nest in the shoe. It's darling! Lucky you, if you've been able to pass down the love of vintage. I'm still waiting for that to kick in with my daughter! She says when she has her own house, everything will be modern. I'm crushed!
    Happy Monday!

  2. I LOVE that shoe/nest!!! What a great idea...I'm sending my sister over, this is exactly her thing! Thank you for playing today!!

  3. I was so happy to help yesterday and spend some quality time with your 3 little ones, knowing that you were off enjoying U2 with Jay!

  4. I am so jealous of the U2 Concert and the sleeping in! How lucky are you!

    I love U2! My claim to fame is that I saw them back in the 80's at a tiny dance club in NJ when no one knew who they were!

    I bet it was a great concert!

  5. oh, that little shoe is adorable!!!

  6. Love that little baby shoe with the bird nest!


admit it! comments make your day! i'd love to hear what you have to say!
