Still the Man of My Dreams…

Our Wedding Day…

Married twenty nine years to the love of my life. Fred is the sweetest. We are partners for life in every way. I cannot imagine spending life with anyone but him. We met years ago, clicked right away, and the rest is history. We are probably different than most couples – we like spending time together, ha ha. This is our story…

Summer Book List and Paint Color in Study!

My Summer Book List

Beach reads 🏖 this time of year are the go-to book on many of our book lists. I like to hear what y’all are reading! Drop me a message via the CONTACT ME button above, or via a comment on my website (this post), Facebook or Instagram. The one genre I’m not big on is horror. Good grief, I don’t even watch the nightly news 😉 So if you have any great suggestions, let me know!!

Do you know what these are called?

The votive candles have these twinkling with light ✨

Aren’t these the coolest? One of these was given to me years ago and I love it. I place a small tea light (with a base so there is no cleanup) and light it. When friends and family members need special prayers I light it. Reminds me of lighting a candle at church. We met recently with an antique dealer, she told us what these are called, do you know?

Friday thoughts…

A cool old stool…

I looked at my phone to read my post for today… Surprise! There was no post! 🤦‍♀️ I flipped through my recent images and found this photo of an old stool that I took. Our home has a mix of Mid-Century Modern classics, a few antiques (gorgeous pine and some other pieces). I love our mix of old and new.

Genuine Canine (GC) Dog Collars!

Genuine Canine Dog Collar Modeled by Charlie

I LOVE well made items. A dog collar, from the nicest feeling leather that will hold up for a very long time and is able to get wet (this company KNOWS dogs love water), it’s just so sharp, I think, if you have a dog, you will be very interested! I just happened to have a model, although he’s a hairy little guy so it took about a zillion photos before I could see the collar. This is one sharp collar, especially with the GC stamp – very classy!

WORLD FAMOUS CHRISTMAS COOKIES!

World Famous Christmas Cookies

These are actually called Christmas Butter Cookies – my family pulled the recipe out of a magazine back in the way back in the 1960’s and we’ve made them ever since. Five stars! Not only are they so tasty, but they are so much fun to make and especially to decorate. I can remember good times decorating one at a time (like tinsel on a tree, one piece at a time)… #whorememberstinsel?
