Monday Morning With Betty

Good Monday Morning!

Hope your week is off to a good start.

I know you came here for flowers as you do every Monday morning, but I thought I'd rock your world and give you a variety of pictures instead.

Breathe deep. Remain calm. The flowers will be back.

Repeat after me: Spontaneity is good.





Your Weekly Vanity Update

Oh, my friends. The vanity still sits, out from the wall and not hooked up.

However! Betty has outwitted the clever vanity.

I decided that even if it is not going to do its job as a vanity, then the least it could do is to hold my clothing.

That's right! Ha-Ha-Ha! I have gotten the better of the vanity!

If it won't do one job, I'll make it do another!

Oh! Who's the smart one, now?





Hope you enjoyed the pictures!

Now let's get busy on that week out there.

(No complaining, staring or loitering, or I'll make you hold my clothing too.)

Oh how I wish I could be happy that it is Monday, but even with your wonderful pictures I'm still hating Mondays......

Most people use their exercise equipment to hold clothes!

DG at Diary of a Mad Bathroom said...

Very pretty pics!

Joe Cap said...

I am surprised you are having such a hard time getting a plumber out there...and how are the mirror interviews going?

Leah J. Utas said...

Love the lines in the pics. Most excellent composition.

Leanne said...

Morning BB, LOVE THE HEADER!!

Unattached vanities and unused exercise bikes make great hangers for one's clothes.

Ha! I think the vanity is great, if its going to stand there looking pretty - it may as well do something useful as well. ;)

Nat said...

Morning Betty!
A change is good...really like the middle pic :)

Piedmont Writer said...

I LOVE that color blue on the fence. And yes, bad vanities make for very good clothes holders. Go you.

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Love that blue fence and we make due with what we have. The vanity works. For me, it's a chair

Out on the prairie said...

Change is for the best.HMMMM I have a hard toime with it some. HA!I have a accent chair my daughter talked me into that is a catch all like the vanity. I have been thinking of clearing it off for days, but very rarely sit in it.

Tracy said...

That vanity looks like my exercise bike.

Pat said...

You are one smart Betty! I like it!

baygirl32 said...

No complaining, staring or loitering.. so that kills 90% of my day, now what?

Mellisa Rock said...

Trying to get a running start this Monday morning - Today is the day that I will get it all done. I promise - if not - maybe tomorrow. :) Have a great week!

Baby Sister said...

Love the pictures. Way to show your vanity a thing or two!! Now it knows who the boss is. :)

Love the quote!! Hope you have a good Monday!!

Brian said...

I think that is what you call Vanity Fair!

Theresa Milstein said...

Wonderful use for the vanity!

Where are the Monday flowers? It's cold and rainy in Cambridge, MA today. I could use the color. At least your blog is nice and bright!

slommler said...

Great idea for that shifty vanity! I am afraid to sit here and type any more words as you might start hanging clothes on me.
Gotta run!!
Hugs

Crystal Cook said...

I love these photos! Especially the one of the straw. It's so chaotic and organic. Now what does that say about me?

Great use for the vanity, but wait a minute. . . Isn't that what they're supposed to be used for?

Have a great day Betty!

Bethany @ Organic Enchilada said...

Love the blue fence! Color is the best. And I also love the header!

Ren- Lady Of The Arts said...

Great photos- I agree change is good- I was thinking I was going to get flowers though.

TS Hendrik said...

You're trying to cover up pain with clothing. Understandable.

Joann Mannix said...

No matter what the content, your pictures are always beautiful. These are no exception.

And thanks for the pep talk. I've been slacking today, but now I will conquer the world or at least the laundry!

ladyfi said...

Great shots, especially the first one!

Flartus said...

Oh, now you're just gonna make the vanity cranky. I can see it glowering at you from under those clothes. What an insult to its dignity. You'd better hope it doesn't get the new mirror to collude in revenge!

Liz said...

it's a rather lovely clothes holder!

i think i like the chairs photo the best!

Ann said...

Spontaneity can be harmful when combustion is involved. I'll survive one Monday without the flowers though. :)

HulaBuns said...

Darn vain and useless vanity! Hehehehe

I think I need to find my vanity first, THEN have it hold my clothes (honestly, who finds vanity in the nude now a days - not I) - what a perfect use for it. :)

Copyboy said...

Ahhh! No flowers? Totally needed my floral fix today. haha. Love the pics!

SquirrelQueen said...

Spontaneity is always good and I promise not to complain, stare or loiter! Your vanity looks a lot like mine.

Love your header shot of the white peafowl!

Michelle Faith said...

Yeah you tell that vanity Betty, show it whos boss! I like the blue fence! My weeks starting off awesome now that my wifi is back up and working...almost died...a week without Betty!

Lin said...

I hope you used the drawers too.

Sarah said...

The plumber is still MIA? Oh dear...

A girl needs 2 Talk said...

I love love love the 3rd picture AND of course the vanity!! you're a smart girl!!

citymouse said...

The color of the blue fence is inviting, but I really like the chairs. You know I love your flowers but this was a nice change.

faye said...

Love the variety and the new
header...

Hope your week goes well..
it is what we make of it, eh ??

Daisy said...

Happy Monday to you, Betty! The pictures were wonderful and good for you pulling a fast one on that vanity. HA! Absolutely love your header photo. Wow! :D

ds said...

Ha ha! Love it--from the peacock to the outwitted vanity! Hope your Monday was terrific, and that the rest of the week will be too!

Maria@BubblegumandDuctTape said...

you are too funny, love the pictures.

Joyful said...

I LOVE the beautiful blue colour of the fence. Have a great week!

Gaston Studio said...

Love the photos Betty! And I think you're putting your vanity to very good use...in the interim.

Jennifer Shirk said...

Spontaneity IS good. LOL!

Marlene said...

Your vanity has joined ranks with my treadmill. Meh. It works.

Shan said...

I meant to comment last night, but got caught up in your prom story. Back to the photos... I love how you say "Spontaneity is good" and then give us a couple photos of some well-ordered lines, haha.

That is one pretty piece of furniture you've got there... one day (hopefully soon) it will no longer serve as an extension of your closet. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Yes, even as I type this, because your vanity... er... uh... sanity?... is *that* important to me.

Hugs and happiness :+)
