G’day! How’s things…?
All good here, I have been for a walk and mega-leg exercises this morning…that means 350′s plus extras…I tried the sitting down with your back against the wall thing…phew….that sure works um just about everything….my goal was to hold it for 2 minutes, I think I managed about 1 min 20…I love exercise like that…full on wham-bam-thank-you-mam in a coupla minutes…and hopefully strong pins as a result…and I stuck a few more in my exercise routine because of tomorrow’s event for the ♥ Saturday Club…
Anyway I am here this morning for Beach Cottage ♥ Saturday’s Club…you ready for our next mission…?
Remember this is the place in the weekend (or any day of the week if you can’t manage that) where we take time out for the little things, the things just for us, silly little things so that life doesn’t pass by in a huge old round of laundry and sporting events and blogging and blah….
… here, in this club, we love to love things like old linen, vintage china, newspapers, ruffles, coffee, old things, treasure hunting, things washed up by the sea, pots of tea, thrifted things…
here’s what went on from last week’s Saturday Club Mission
Melissa wanted to try out her own potions
‘I’ve been wanting to make one of your home potions forever, so I’m going to take some time to go out and get what I need, meet up with a friend for a coffee and a chat and then, buy myself a lovely fresh, springlike candle.’
Teri decided to smell lotions and re-start her blog!
I love pretty smelling lotions and I just happened to run out of mine too! I hope you don’t mind me joining, but I think you have inspired me to start up my sleeping blog again! Thank you!
Grace did it at home…
‘Oooh…this is right up my alley! I love yummy smelling stuff…and have been needing a little something to freshen up my daily dressing routine…so this is perfect! (Is it okay to drink a coffee and shop via the internet (I don’t think I’ll be able to get away tomorrow)…so long as I’m wearing ruffles?!!) Blessings, Grace’
Sarah bought ruffle socks just for the occasion
‘I have just bought myself a pair of ankle socks with ruffle to wear with plimsolls-will christian them tomorrow on smelly treasure hunt (that doesn’t read quite as glamorous as you made it sound!!!) Yes, I bought the socks in the kids department…no, I do not care! Have a great weekend everyone. xx’
Alima from this blog thought about wellies and ruffles
ooohhh I so want to be a life long member, but its supposed to be a sunny 70 here tomorrow and people might laugh at me if I go out wearing my wellies.
I might do it anyway – we shall see I will most certainly wear some ruffles!
K from VintageSkye took a much needed day off with her man
Haven’t been out with my special guy in a loong time. He owns his own business and it takes up so much time when you have employees. I sometimes (most of the time) dream of him having a job working for someone with set hours and a lower paycheck. Note to you all~ money is not worth all the time away!! Anyway, I made him promise that tomorrow is our day so it will be twice as fun! Can’t wait!
Beth Anderson was excited
Oh yessssssss!!!! Mission #2 is right up my alley!
Can’t wait until tomorrow!!!!!
Sally was looking forward to it
Sarah…thank you so much for coming up with the “Saturday Club”!! Have to tell ya, I’m loving it sister!!!
Looking forward to checking off my list tomorrow.
Sending you love and hugs…….Sally
I will drag my teenage son along. That should inspire plenty of LOLs!
(you can read more of what people got up to here)
we also like to rock ruffles and we take time out on ♥ Saturdays just for us, albeit 15 mins or all afternoon, to hunt out the good stuff and celebrate life, no matter what it’s like, wherever you are.
…you must be prepared in being part of this club to embrace the value of down-time & dwelling on the good little things…finding the good in life…this club is so not about money, how much you have or haven’t got, or time, how much you have or have not got, it’s about working with all of those things to rock your life before you blink and it’s all over
so ladies here we go
BC ♥ Saturdays mission
should you choose to accept it
is this :
you must head out
to a place
that sells things
that are naughty-but-nice
indulging in the thing
you love but
you never let yourself eat
it must be full of calories
and it will certainly help
in the live-the-good-life-factor if
or all of the above
take long, slow
of pure indulgence
you must embrace
as you enjoy your treat
the world go by
I have mine ear-marked…it involves Greece, and I am gonna absolutely one hundred and fifty percent delight in the pleasure of it
I will be wearing ruffles, wellies may make an appearance, it will also involve the beach and I will be back here to report it…
