Queen for a day!!!

It is Thursday afternoon, and I just returned home from a day of pampering. Mani/Pedi day at the salon. It is suppose to be fun, but it is all that sitting that I dislike.
I start thinking of all of the things I could or should be doing, while I am suppose to RELAX!
If I get back to the projects, and mess up my pretty nails and toes, the vicious cycle will start all over again.
Right now I am obsessed with crowns and tiaras. This is the view inside my home office armoire. It must be the shiny, sparkly girl thing.
Anyway I better get back to my painting and gardening. My manicurist loves my projects.

Have a royal day!

That's a sweet little vignette! Love the title of those books, too!

I'm with you, no time for all that primping and fussing. I prefer to 'play' at my house instead. My hands are a mess and could certainly use a manicure but when they're busy all the time what can you do. I guess you can use the mani/pedi time for planning your projects as long as your manicurist isn't too chatty. LOL

Can you believe that I've never had a manicure or a pedicure! I'm always doing something with my hands so I figure why bother.

I love tiaras too! I've been looking at the vintage ones on eBay, but I just can't get myself to pay those prices! ahhh, sparkly, pretty things!


P.S. I added you to my fun people to visit link

I'm with you, I hate sitting that long. I've given up on the manicures because of all the cleaning and gardening but pedicures I love.

Ooo! I have a thing for tiars also..for a number of years! I love them/ do not own any though! I am glad to see that YOU DO! They are Lovely! I read about an Antique/boutiqu owner who collects them along with hotel silver. she is in California also. She was also on HGTV ...way back. She must have an amazing shop!
Hey be so lucky to have a pedicure!!! Perhaps it is routine for California girls and thus I see your point1 : )
With Kindness,
Oh! Thank You for placing me in your side Bar!! So very kind of you! Happy painting!!! said...

Oh, how funny, I just did that. Was being pampered and felt like I was wasting time. I was trying to make myself enjoy it, but I kept thinking of all the things I rather do, or rather spend the money on!
