Here we go! Ale, Ale Ale! Go, go, go! Ale, Ale Ale!

"No one can hold you down. If you really want it
Just steal your destiny. Right from the hands of fate
Reach for the cup of life."

Do you really want it?? Awww Ricky Martin. Remember him? No, I haven't completely lost my mind. That song Cup of Life--well I thought of it today when Andy sent me flowers. Why did I think of it? Well because the card said "These are for your cup of life." You see, that is what Andy calls my mercury glass vase: my cup of life. He's forever asking me what I'm going to put in it, so finally I told him that if someone ever sent me flowers, I'd have something to put in the vase. Well guess what came today:

Nope, I'm not at all spoiled. And here's the whole picture. This is the fireplace in the kitchen--I think on the floor plan, the builder called this little area the hearth room or something like that. Anyway, I just wanted to point out my mad design on a dime skills here. The clock is from Target and the pictures are also from the T although I bought them cheaper at a thrift store. I liked the Paris theme since Drew and I were married there--Paris, Las Vegas that is. The candle sticks are also from a thrift store. The red candles were Christmas clearance at Kohl's. The iron welcome mat is a reproduction from a little shop in Occoquan, but I thought it was too pretty to step on so I put it on the mantle. Finally, the aforementioned mercury glass was on clearance from Pottery Barn. Do my penny pinching skills astound or what?
