I have been out of the loop for a few days, and to be honest, I am not fully back in.

My step-dad has some serious health issues so when something happens to him, it is different then when it happens to someone else. I spent quite a bit of time in a hospital over the last few days.

I don’t like hospitals.

After a lot of testing – he is fine! It took a lot of testing to find out what the problem was and it turns out he needs some physical therapy – but he is all good!

Nothing like that to put a little perspective on things!

Speaking of perspective,I am heading out today for a weekend away with my Betties. Exactly the perspective I need!

So, I am going to go laugh, relax, be my most true self and hopefully come back refueled and not so darn tired!

So, now to the showing!

First, last week I shared the beautiful industrial shelves from {aka} design. They have now posted the tutorial and you can find it here.

Happy Go Lucky made this fabulous rug from fabric – oh the possibilities this opens up!

Lovely Etc. shared a great tutorial on this lovely sign


And last, if you are looking to get yourself more organized, Sunny Side Up has this organization binder to get yourself focused. Now I just need to take the time to do it!

Wishing you all a great weekend with people you love and some time to laugh!
