Planted on the Couch

Just planted here on the couch and my bed for a couple days.
Someone was kind enough to pass their sickness on to me.

Don't know who or when...
Don't you hate that?
Planted on my big, sick, cozy couch

I had to post something...
even with this foggy mind 
living in this head
here at the maison.  See?  Foggy!

Some good though...

Jo-Anne Coletti's magazine, 
The Feminine Home arrived late last night. 

Guess FedEx is gearing up for Christmas as 
delivery came after 9:30 pm. 

Since I'm not feeling well, 
Zeke wasn't happy to hear the delivery truck
arriving so late.  

He's not one for working a lot (any) overtime, 
especially during the holidays!

I've just flipped through the pages 
(because of this bug, I seem to flip from
one thing to another even more often than normal... hard to concentrate).
 Every photo I've seen is so breathtakingly beautiful.  

I love having so many friends featured in the magazine too.

I've already ordered a copy for my BFF for a zillion years, so Jeannette
if you're reading this, your copy is on the way.

I did want to show you two little vignettes.

I have to show you at least a little of our
Christmas decorations here at the maison.

And no, we still don't have a tree!

I was supposed to go get it today.

Here are the vignettes though for you!

A little snow man I love 
under one of my tiny cloches
Little Snowman under Cloche
Since I didn't have snow for my snow man,
I did the next best thing...
he's laying atop sand from France

Do you collect sand, rocks,
bits of nature wherever you go too?

Hope so!

And a wonderful ex voto tag
I ordered from Ozma of Odds

I love all her creations!

Here's a close up.  I ordered three different
tags and they're all beautiful in the set.
Ex Voto Tag from Ozma of Odds
Lastly, I have too much time on my hands
for staring into space, tweeting...
yes, way too many tweets today
(sorry tweeps!)


But the fab thing is I found a lovely
French video/song which I love...

Love the message, let's be there for one another
and pick each other up, not tear each other apart!

Take a look, non?

How did you like it?

Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Think I'm going to a holiday open house 
over at Anna Corba's studio if I feel better.  

Please keep your fingers crossed for moi,won't you?  

Whatever you do, have fun and stay healthy!

Time to get back to my couch.
Just look at my Paper Whites... they're getting big
and I have scads et scads of them!
Paper Whites growing, growing!

Happiness to you...



So sorry you are sick Tracie, but sometimes you just need a little downtime. Can't imagine anything better than curling up with a new magazine with luscious photos and a hot cup of tea. Try to enjoy what you can of it. And I sure hope you feel better soon.


P.S. Yes, I collect seashells everywhere I go (bags and bags of them), rocks shaped like hearts, stray feathers, you get the idea.

Oh my goodness, Tracie, I hope you feel better soon. I am waiting for my copy of Jo Ann's magazine to arrive and then I am going curl up on my couch to read {I had the bug a week ago}.

Wishing you well, my friend.


Sandi said...

So sorry you are sick Tracie!! I do hope you get better soon. My hubby's eye is better, but now he has a cold and a terrible sore throat. Hoping I don't catch it so I can visit my new grandbaby when she arrives...hopefully tomorrow.

Hope you are feeling better soon! Love your vignettes!
Your home is so lovely and with scads of paperwhites blooming soon it promises to be stunning! :)

Ozma of Odds said...

...I about feel on the floor as your post is my life at the moment:
~ caught a horrid head cold that has me loopy.
While I do have my tree up and lights on it, the only thing on it at the moment is another Nicole Sayre angel ~ but alas no sand from france, will sand from Carmel beach do?!
I too, got my GORGEOUS magazine last night, but can't focus my eyes on the beautious pages.
~ and a few of my paper whites are almost ready to bloom:)
~ and do I have ex-voto's?? LOL!!
We are two of a kind my friend!
Sending well wishes and a cup of tea to you dear one!!
xo, Rosemary

Hi Tracie,
You are one tough girl being able to produce such a lovely post inspite of being sick....we bloggers are such a special bunch!!

You have a very lovely corner to cozy up in and dream.

Get well soon.


trash talk said...

Being ill is no fun and especially a pain in the neck this time of year. Get to feeling better toot sweet. Maybe a little something extra in the Bailey's cup would help banish the ick.
I'm sure the little snowman loves his place at the beach!

Theresa said...

June said...

I am so sorry you are sick Tracie. I will send you good, good healthy thoughts tonight.
I had it about a month ago and the only good thing that came out of it was leaving me even more grateful for good health. Then Landon got it, and so then I good be grateful when he got better.

Your home is such a beautiful haven. I always feel lucky to catch a peek or two. I am sorry about thinking your home was featured in FH, I guess I thought it must be from your post. Julie Marie set me straight though.
big hug

laura said...

I'm so sorry you weren't feeling well, but if it's any consolation I feel better after relaxing in your pretty room!
