Stuff To Show You and Share With You


I finally got my snow a couple of weeks ago.  David turned on the outside lights for me and I watched it snow as I dozed.  I think that the last time I looked outside was around 3 AM and it was just about stopped.  I got up early that morning and took my time getting ready for and going to work. I enjoyed the brief moments of snow....I stood outside on the deck, rolled down my car windows and opened the sun roof....smelled and felt the freshness of it.  By the time I got home from work, it was gone...and if it had never happened.  But I enjoyed it while it lasted.



This picture is of #4 taking a bubble bath, look at that pure joy on her face...



This a piece of Fire King cookware.  It is depression glass of the Philbe pattern.  It is a large mixing bowl.  I collect this and it was mine all mine at the auction for five bucks!!!


This funky silver plated bowl now holds QTips in my bathroom....bought at the auction--mine for $2.50.



Annndddd my Auction Buddy Judy got this Longaberger casserole with the basket for five bucks!!!  She showed it to me and dared me to bid against her...dared me.  It was hard, but I love her too much and besides I got my Fire King, so I was happy.

And of course a puppy dog picture.........


And last but not least the bus that brought my son home from Iraq to Germany, from Germany to Maine, from Maine to Biloxi and from Biloxi to Hattiesburg.......and tomorrow he will come by here on his way to his house.  Praise The Lord!!!

So glad you had snow! For years you have wanted it to snow!

Glad your son is home safe.

You are really finding so many good things at auction. That silver plated bowl is such a great touch for holding Q-tips.

Doggies are adorable as usual.

Bubble bath photo---so cute!

Yay! So glad to hear he's coming home--seems like just yesterday when you were writing about him leaving! OK--now that you've made me somewhat jealous about that Philbe bowl, you've got to make me completely jealous and show off your entire collection. Please? Kisses to the girlies--Holly and Boogie are having a "Day of Beauty" today at the groomer and I'm sure Boogie is NOT appreciating my nice gesture!
