Good gracious, what a busy weekend! Was y’alls the same way? Good, but also one of those that is so busy that you’re almost glad when Monday comes so that you can go to work and get a break?
Anyway, welcome to this week’s Monday, Monday! This week: sharing a link explaining a little about the solar eclipse madness, a beautiful library Pin, a headboard Hi-Lo, and a historic house with round room goodness!
We checked out an awesome antique place in Monroe Georgia, and it was so big that I had to take a nap when we got home.
It was amazing! We went to several other places too that were close by, and made a whole day of it. Got some amazing artwork (which I meant to take a picture of, and didn’t) by Ho-Chu.

Welp, today is the day of the big eclipse. Our little town is not quite in the path of totality, but almost. Lots of the towns that I visit for work are in the path of totality though and a lot of the schools are actually closed, so people around here are going a little crazy. Like this weekend the grocery store shelves were already cleaned off. I honestly didn’t even realize there was an eclipse until I listened to Chris Loves Julia’s podcast about it. If you haven’t and are wondering what all of the madness is all about, it’s a good listen.
Pin of the Week
So I’m really thinking about doing the One Room Challenge in a couple of months, and the room that I want to do is the center hallway in my house. I’ve always wanted to turn it into a library, since right now it’s wasted space. I’ve got a whole board on Pinterest devoted to libraries just because of this. Anyway, this image blew.me.away. It’s exactly what I’m picturing in there:
Even down to the couch! It’s the one room that I’d want to make just a leetle bit more formal…or grown up maybe. Something like that. Anyway, this room is stunning!
Hi-Lo of the Week

I can’t even explain why I was looking at headboards on the inter webs. But I ran into the Pottery Barn headboard and couldn’t believe what a good deal it was, and it didn’t take too long to find a Hi:
Real Estate Spy
Well, it’s probably a good thing that I don’t have any extra tens of thousands lying around… ’cause this would probably happen:
It’s called The Rice House in Augusta, Georgia. $59,000. So what if “significant capital is needed for rehabilitation”? Look at these rooms!
I mean, those rooms are round. I feel like decorating round rooms are like the final frontier of decorating. Even though honestly they always look a little haunted to me. It’s like they’re so fabulous that no spirit would want to leave! Still love them. 🙂
Okay, that’s this week’s Monday Monday! Be sure to come back tomorrow, when I share my number one must have tip for painting! See you then!
