Happy Labor Day!

Not too much happening yet here. But, tonight, my brother, his wife, my grandfather and hopefully my sister and her husband will be coming overe here for grilled hamburgers, potatoe salad, baked beans, & dessert.

I bought this little mini from Elise Blaha's etsy shop found here: .

And a couple more of my self portraits from Saturday. I love this golden vintage action from Coffee Shop Actions - the link to these free actions is over off to the right hand side of my blog!

Well, I'm off to finish up some stuff around the house and maybe sneak in a little NCIS. There is a marathon of NCIS today :-)
