It's Friday!!!!

Why is it Friday already? Why did I think I had a blog post ready to go? Where is my brain?

This week at work we were talking about old things we miss. Cage Elevators! I love them. The workmanship, the squeaks and grinds, the elevator attendant. Who remembers all this?

Being a youngster in Europe in the 50's, there were still plenty of them around. I can remember the ones at different spots in Paris. Ah to be able to see those again.

I thought I had posted some before shots of things that were going to be "overhauled" this weekend. But, no apparently I did not.

To do:
Go to the Bank
Pick up chair cushions at Tuesday Morning
Go to an evening wedding of my favorite 20-something young lady!
Figure out what happened to the blog posting this week
Lose 40 lbs

How much do you think I'll get done today?

Hi Marlis! Oh what beautiful elevators. I can't remember if I've seen any as lovely as you are picturing but it's nice just to think back to the few stores who offer the old elevators that require a person to actually run them. Just what is their title? LOL!

I just peeked at your tablescape. Oh my did I ever enjoy those pictures. So pretty.

I remember the day of these elevators...think they are a work of art! So very interesting and beautiful.

I have a wedding to go to next week-end and I thought how can I lose 100 pounds before then...haha...oh brother am I delusional...grins.

God bless and may you have a sweet week-end,
