See You Soon

I'll be taking some time off from blogging for a couple of weeks as my family and I enjoy a long awaited vacation.

Our bags are packed.
Our passports are ready.
Our cute little dog is in good hands with my brother and sister-in-law (thanks guys!).

And I've been practicing my French.
We'll be spending some time in France, England and Scotland with friends who are currently living in the UK.  Hope our trip goes better than the Griswald's European vacation!

I hope everyone enjoys a wonderful, safe 4th of July weekend.

    don't leave me...

    I'm not finished packing yet...Jane!
    WAIT!!!! WAIT FOR ME!!!
    (i'm flip flopping all over the floor)
    you leaving without me?
    i thought we was friends.
    i can speak french.
    i could have been better than an old book.
    I would have been a good travel buddy.
    i don't snore. (fingers crossed)
    you are going to miss me.
    you are going to regret not taking me.
    by day two, you will feel so guilty.
    maybe you'll come home early 'cuz you miss me.
    maybe i'll just sit by the window and wait.
    i really think you are on your way to pick me up.
    you would never leave without me.
    would you?

    Dear Jane, I hope you have a wonderful time in the romantic country. I hope you shop in the fleas, find some treasures, enjoy time with friends, drink some wine, eat some cheese, listen to wonderful music, see beautiful sunsets, ride in the countryside, wear some plaid, visit the queen, take lots of photos and take me with you.

    I'm going to miss you.
    but I still don't think you left me behind.
    i'll be waiting by the front window, you must be running late.
    that's okay.

  33. sniff sniff...

    i'm still waiting for you to come get me.
    sniff sniff.
    my window is all foggy.
    i really think you forgot about me.
    no way i can get to the airport on time now.
    have fun without me Jane.
    i know. it will be rough.
    but i know you will.
    have enough fun for me too.
    tell me all about it when you get home.
    i'll still be waiting.
    by the foggy window.
    sniff sniff

  34. Have a marvelous time in Europe!!! I can't wait to see photos! And I know you will return with all sorts of new ideas on how to repurpose vintage items into something beautiful and functional for your home! :-)

    PS Take lots of pics!

  36. have a wonderful trip you lucky, lucky girl!

  37. Have a great vacation! Loved your vintage flag decoration. :)

  38. Hi Jane

    I see from your comment on Normandy Life that you are coming over the pond!! It has been very warm and sticky here this week, but I believe next week might be a little cooler, But if you have been in the UK before you will know to always carry a waterproof and / or an umbrella.

    Have great time in England, Scotland and Paris.

    Best wishes, Jackie, Surrey UK.

  39. Hi Jane,
    Hope you guys have a wonderful and safe trip! I'm so happy for you, you deserve a get away.

  40. Hi Jane, at the moment, I'm giggling about Jodie's comments. :)

    My ex-husband's last name was Griswold and my husband now still calls me that as a nickname. "Griswold"

    I love your doggie! Before coming to Kuwait, I had a wire-haired fox terrier named Scooter. I sent him to my friend in Dallas when I left, thinking I would only be away for 2 years. It was the hardest thing I ever had to do. She wound up having him for 12 years and he died when he was 15 -- that was several years ago.

    I know it goes without saying -- you will have a FANTASTIC time. Enjoy every single minute. Best wishes, Tammy

  41. Hi Jane, I am so JEALOUS!! I have been trying to convince my hubs that we need to do this very trip and he isn't very excited about the idea! Well, you have enough fun for all us wannabes!! Be safe, Julie

  42. Oh my goodness, I hope you're taking an extra empty suitcase for all of the treasures I'm sure you will find! I know it doesn't need to be said, but have a fantastic time. Expect a full blow-by-blow upon your return. ;-)

    All the best,

    P.S. Another thing we have in common...the wire-haired fox terrier...we had one (Skippy) when I was a teenager in CA.

  43. Have a wonderful time. The weather here in England is beautiful. Nice and sunny. (North Yorkshire)Has been like that most of the week. Enjoy and safe journeys. Angela

  44. Have a safe and wonderful journey, my friend!

  45. Have a great time! We loved England!!! Can't wait to hear how it went and see photos. I would go back in a heartbeat. Connie

  46. Hope you are enjoying a well deserved vacation. I got excited when I saw your passports. A European vacation. Hope you left room in your suitcases to bring home goodies. Knowing you, I bet you will find some good places to thrift.

  47. Trying not to be jealous and I'm happy for you at the same time. I miss you already, but know you are having loads of fun. Will be waiting for a postcard with a French postmark! ;)

    I'm still back and forth with my mom but trying to post when I can. See you soon.


  48. Wow, you'll have plenty to blog when you come back, have a fabulous time!

    Love your little dog, such a sweet face!

  49. Enjoy your time and have a great trip! I'm so jealous!


  50. enJOY! I cannot wait to hear all ab your trip!

  51. i hope every minute is delightful!

  52. Jane, I'm late reading this post as I've been out of town and away from a computer. Hope you have a fabulous trip. Will you get to meet Maggie? ~ Sarah

  53. Great work! Yours is one of the best I've found on the topic of tag sale recycling and creating. Your designs and photographs are really top drawer. Thank you for what has turned out to be a delightful artist's field trip for me.



Thanks for stopping by. I really enjoy reading all of your comments!
