Herzlich willkommen, die Damen,
Pecking out this post on my Nook tonight from my hotel bed in Baden-Baden, Germany. Joining Anne in Residence and Dana of Something Good talking about what we’re currently styling, saving, searching, picking, and making. But rest assured, I am covering those topics in alphabetical. I may be on holiday but I’m still a librarian!
Before jet lag gets the best of me – it’s 9:00 pm here and 1:00 pm at home – let’s hop to it.
Plans for the things I want to do when we get back home. Will only be home five days before we had to Phoenix for the Senior Men’s World Series. I dragged out all if my fall decor before leaving for Germany but didn’t have the energy to do the decorating. Also want to get a manicure. No tips, no gel polish. Just an old fashioned mani. Making an appointment as soon as I get home.
Souvenirs of our trip for family. Today we spent the afternoon in Triberg in the Black Forrest of Bavaria. We hiked to see a lovely waterfall after shopping for trinkets to take home. Picking up keepsake pebbles and pinecones, too.
Pennies, of course! Still saving a penny a day for my Christmas fund. Up over $300 now I think. Should have almost $700 by December 25. YaY, me. Saving is generally against my nature.
For a perfect piece of clothing to add to my wardrobe for autumn. Bought two pretty floral blouses at Loft Outlet to pair with corduroy pants for this trip. A floral blouse was on the Get Your Pretty On fall work wear challenge. Always the overachiever, I bought two. Would love to find a unique, special sweater or wrap to buy here. Searching for that in each city we visit.
Not a whole lot of that going on. Wearing comfy clothes for the most part In my role as American tourist. Tomorrow, we will be styling swim wear and bath towels as we enjoy a visit to Caracalla Thermal Spa. Once we finish, I am sure to be styling a relaxed attitude.
What are you making, picking, saving, searching, and styling? Hope you will share in a comment below. Most especially, please share any recipes or autumn crafts you are making. Always looking for fresh ideas over here.
Going to attempt to make a graphic for this post before scheduling it to publish. If the post you are reading is graphic-free, you’ll know that attempt was a bust on my Nook.
Hugs and kisses,
