Lots of activity around here lately...visiting Tim at his new place, a visit from and
thrifting with my first best friend (we've known each other since we were three!),
fall yard work, still working on putting books in the new bookcases, fall baking, trying
to finish up painting the nightstand for our bedroom (I'm taking a blog break while
the paint dries), and then yesterday...Brian and I meeting up with Tim at the cemetery
to remember and honor Phil. I can't believe it's been four years since the day he
passed away. What else can I write that hasn't already been written ~ about how our
lives will never be the same and how much we miss him? I'll tell you this though: my
heart hurts more for Tim than it does for myself or Brian. Tim still understandably has
a hard time dealing with his brother's death, to the point where he didn't go to one
of his classes yesterday because he didn't want to interact with anyone.
Breaks my heart.

On to other things around Comfy House ~
My mom gave me this adorable owl planter. Well, I call it a planter and made
it into one. I don't know what it originally was. The date on the bottom says 1975,
and looks like it might've had some kind of lid.
Zippo is showing us that he's much cuter than any ol' owl.
The owl love continues onto the ladder bookcase...
The two small owls on the top shelf are Goebel.
Snagged them on eBay a few years ago.
This little guy was found while thrifting for 49 cents...
And this painted pretty was another thrifted find from a few years ago.
I bought the yellow candle holder a few days ago at TJ Maxx from the
I've noticed the trend towards gold in decorating this season, but since I have a silver
lamp on the table next to the couch, this silver owl goes with the flow.
Be thankful for those whooo you love ~ tell them every chance you get how
much you love them and how your life is richer from their presence.
