Today is a big day for several reasons – but it’s also a day to be grateful/blessed for growing up in a loving environment. I don’t take that for granted, I am thankful every single day. This is my family on our sailboat many (many, many) years ago. I vividly remember the curtains my mom made for the boat, they were a very cool purple/gold/off white stripe. I ran across this photo of a photo and LOVE IT!Continue reading “Fiddle Faddle, Georgian Bay & Special Wishes”
I don’t have a lot of “stuff” that I keep. Mentally, too much “stuff” can be exhausting to some people (me!). However I do have a few treasures that I have saved from when I was a (very young) kid. I’ve always loved paper (still do), writing, reading, art. Some things never change…Continue reading “A Blast From the Past!”
A year ago, WHO would have thought that we would be adding “washing masks” to our weekly reportoire? This was a chilly day, I washed the masks and then needed to find a sunny spot for them to dry. Hehe… Worked like magic! Also a tip for getting the nose piece back in place…Continue reading “Laundry Day Ideas…”
Glorious! The arrival of fall like weather is nothing short of glorious to me. I am so excited for hot and humid weather to be on its way out! I am looking so forward to fresh air, cool breezes, open windows, flannel and polar fleece.
There, I said it. Ha… I am in my happy place when I can be *me* – born and raised in Michigan, here are a few of my fall memories…Continue reading “Fall is my “happy place”!”

I have so many images on my computer – it’s getting a little mind boggling. Last year I spent a good week going through images and deleting. But I love so many of them and keep them – time to “spring clean” again! Continue reading “A Photo From the Archives | Rockport, ME”
We celebrated Thanksgiving this year with my niece and her family – they’re on top of things and already had their Christmas tree up and decorated… so of course I had to snap a few photos of their ornaments! Beautiful! Continue reading “A holiday message!”
This is a memory… a good Christmas memory. Fred and I went for a drive on Christmas back in 2005. He told me to close my eyes until he reached his destination… there was going to be a surprise.
Several years ago we bought a Christmas tree, set it up, decorated it and it was beautiful. Then Charlie, our Jack Russell terrier, jumped off of our bed and landed wrong… Continue reading “Joy for only $2.99?”
We have purchased about 4,700 sample size containers of paint from Benjamin Moore. We want to be absolutely, positively sure on this color selection thing, because it’s a big deal. A bad color can break a room, while a great color can make it sing!
Folly Beach, SC. This is a beach full of life! Most of the time there is a lot going on and people everywhere. Continue reading “Folly Beach – Surf Cams!”
Lilies. I love them. They have the most wonderful scent ever! We usually buy 4 stems, and they last about 2 weeks. I usually try to find a few stems that have blooms that have not opened so they will last longer. This is what I do: Continue reading “Cut Lilies Can Make A Room!”
