This Day

Think about

"this day"


Is it a day to rejoice in.

If you wake up and are aware and alert, it should be a day to rejoice in.

You know you are loved

by him...

"this day"

Everyday "HE" loves you.

It is what you make it.

So make it

"this day"

a good one.


Thank you for joining me for the second annual White September...

Enjoy Fall YAll!

Life in a Bubble


1. Alone ( but I can invite hubby in)

2. all in White

3. outdoors (sorta)

4. rain would be amazing


1. out there for all the world to see

2. no TV

3. when grand kids visit, they would bounce off the walls.

4. All white

Out on the Porch
Come sit with me out on the porch in early morn,
And watch a new day struggle to be born.
A tinge of orange upon horizon's breast
And stars now tired--flicker low and rest.
Look through dark leaves to lighter skies in space, At patterns that resemble finest lace.
So quiet hear the beating of our hearts
As slowly day arrives--and night departs.
The moon now pale high in the sky,
Watch morning birds as they begin to fly.
Tranquility abounds, air crystal clear,
A moment stopped in time, devoid of fear.
To feel the warmth of rising sun,
Another day for us begun.
Reach out your hand for me to hold.
Together, watch this day unfold.

Look at this simple wreath.

Isn't it just cute?

I like simple lately.

Less is more.

If you know me you know I haven't had a table and chairs for a few years now.

Sold mine and haven't found what I wanted yet.

Yesterday I did!

I had decided awhile back I wanted this kind of table.

And I found it, at a yard sale

After a year or so hunt, I got what I wanted.

So excited

And it only cost me $50.00

If I was only smart enough back then to start with white dishes.
But instead, I have blue, green, actually 2 greens, clear, pink an a assortment of odd plates. Nothing matches and I can only set a table for 4, but i love dishes. I have with the help of Linda started to collect white Buffalo china. You know what I am talking about, it is old restaurant ware. We realized Cracker Barrel still uses Buffalo ware.
The plan is to get rid of some of the odd pieces.
We will see.

On our 90 something day of 90 degree weather in Alabama.

And it is September, which means it is Fall.

Alabama weather is so unpredictable.

So today, I am looking at this picture dreaming of the cold days of winter.

Everything is beautiful in the snow.

Don't you think.

Let's put some light on this subject

I have been making roses out of all kinds of things lately.

Cupcake liners, coffee filters, fabric, felt, and paper.

So what do you think?

All you do is cut a circle.

Free form of course.

Check out U-tube for many different videos.

And lets make our world a more beautiful place with roses.

On a Wing and a Prayer

I pray today that Hubby has a good week fishing in Tenn at the Regional Fishers of Men Tournament.

I pray Dear Daughter gets back safe and sound from her vacation.

I pray each one of you have a great week.

Flowers, just for you.
Don't you love to get flowers?
I do.
I don't care that they die and cost a arm and a leg.
I love flowers and I deserve them.
Just saying is all.
Thank you in advance.

It is time for bed.

Been really sleepy lately.

Getting 7 hours sleep.

What is going on?

By the Sea

By the Sea

By the beautiful Sea

I love all things nature


Seems I see beauty in not so beautiful things.

Like sea shells and wasp nest.

And I love to decorate with them.

Silver Lining 's
I kinda like the tarnished look of old silver.
Used and worn.
Kinda like I feel today.
But the silver and white is a pretty sight.
Enjoy the picture today.
And enjoy the weather, it is beautiful outside.

Little Shop of White
Oh, the whole shop isn't white but I wish it was.
But the next few days will be pictures from the shop.
I love the look of the white decorations, just can't have it at home.
So I look and decorate at the shop in white.
And for the ones that know me, the wedding of my brother and new sister in law, went well.
It did rain alittle before the wedding and I put off the decorating of the tables until after we arrived back at the house. I just wanted to make sure it was all over. And so I just put everyone to work. It looked great.
Thanks for all the help, it was a wonderful night.

Next Year
So it is after Labor Day and time to put up those white hand bags and white shoes.
Time for cooler temperatures,
time for cooler nights, with the windows open.
I just love to lay in bed and listen to the sounds of the night.
Silents is golden.
Silents is sweet.
Silents is mine.

Good Morning

Five Days till 75 people will be here.
Don't open a closet.

It is wonderful Clothes on the line weather. Hot enough to dry them but cool enough to sit and wait for them to dry. I am really enjoying this weather. How is your Labor Day going?

Sunday, September 05, 2010

Inside looking out.

Do you ever feel this way?

I have had a very strange last few weeks.

Body changing, getting older.

I don't like change.

Put on your dancing shoes and join me in the kitchen. Hubby and I have kitchen danced for years. I will be just cooking away and hubby will walk up behind me and ask for a dance. By no means are we anything close to Fred and Ginger. He holds me close and I rest my head on his chest. That's about it. And then he is gone again, to watch his ball games. So as football starts this week, I am looking forward to some kitchen dancing. Bring it on Fred.

White September Day 2

As the air is turning cooler and the leaves are starting to fall, I am kinda sad.

Sad that the days of Summer have passed, no one has been in the pool for days, there is no towels hanging on the porch rail, wet swim trunks in the bathroom floor and no wet footprints from the door to the bathroom. But I do see the beauty of fall. Sitting on the porch swing with a hot cup of coffee, listening to the birds and watching the leaves fall. I enjoy the seasons, each one of them. They all have a beauty about them. Enjoy the season.

It is another year and another "White September". So why not start it off with this wonderful blog I just drool over.
This pic was taken from her site. Seems she made the slip cover for Cheryl at this blog... Both have to die for rooms. I can never have a all white room. Not with 3 grandsons and a mechanic hubby. It just wouldn't work. So I decorate in white at the shop and add whit touches in the house, but up high. So the sticky hands of toot won't get to it. But he has started to climb, so we will see. HA.
Notice the coke sign on the wall, it is white too. Have a great Thursday.

One event down....
Sunday was Britney's baby shower. This was her third baby shower. This baby will never need any clothes. She has gotten anything she will need, and if she didn't she got alot of gift cards. It was raining cats and dogs, and 28 guest. Boy it was an adventure, to say the least. I am so glad I had finished the paper part of the shower on Thursday and sent it, by my sister in law , June.

The cupcakes was Italian cream, and yummy!
I was so busy, I didn't even get a picture of the Mommy . Or a picture of the beautiful mini album I made her. But since she is my niece in law, I think I will get a chance to take a few pictures later.
The baby, a girl, is due in October.

As you know, I love my jars. All kinds of jars. But the blue Mason Jars, are my fav. I use them for everything.
I use them for storage, my buttons, I use them for lights on a table, I use them as a vases, we drink out of them. There is nothing like a glass of tea in a mason jar. Look at them on this table, isn't it a pretty, simple table. Looks good! What do you use jars for?
