Antique Mall Collections

Sunday afternoon, Jaia and I headed over to the local antique mall to kill some time, get out of the house, have some fun, and in all honesty –  waste a few hours. We were tired of being homebound… We wandered around, saw lots of neat and interesting things, but what caught my eye, was…

June 20

I’ve realized that the perfect blogging time for me is first thing in the morning.
