Movies, Flowers & Vintage Books~

Hi all, I hope your having a wonderful day!!~
I've just been painting and re-arranging things around the house lately, trying to keep busy.
Our weather has been kinda of yucky lately, with clouds and drizzle yesterday, it's made me want to stay inside and watch movies, and usually I hate just sitting around. 
We rented the movie "My Week With Marilyn" on Friday night and I was surprised to find that I really enjoyed it. I thought Michelle Williams did a pretty good job portraying Marilyn Monroe. We also rented "Tower Heist" which I got for hubby, but I ended up loving it. Everyone in the cast was fabulous!!

Anyway, I thought I would post some more photos of my flowers. I picked these up last week at the farmer's market they have behind Country Roads every Thursday. They had beautiful flowers and they were super cheap! Gotta love that!!~

Some favorite vintage things~

I put all of my favorite vintage books and French letters on my table in front of my fireplace mantle and I really love how it turned out.

A little spot in my kitchen~

Well, I hope you all enjoyed!!~
Have a wonderful night my friends~~

***So excited to join up with my friend Kathleen At "Faded Charm" for her Famous White Wednesday!! Check out all of the wonderful inspiration.
I'm also joining Michele at "Primp" for "Primp Your Stuff Wednesday"~
