Thank you, Jeanie. Yellow Box is a brand. They have the cutest styles of flip flops I've seen. Google Yellow Box flip flops to see some of the style.

It was a mutual backup, Pinky. Our little camera didn't even have time to beep!!

Believe it or not, those were the portions. I don't know why. We had wine and bread with it. I usually eat more of this particular salad. I love it.

We have shelves in the basement for extras. I also donated some and gave the girls dishes when we were getting ready to move. I need to pick up a few more shelves. These are just the utility shelves from Lowe's.

Hi Rozz. Rotel is a tomato and pepper mix and can be found in the shelves where the regular tomatoes are.

Thank you so much, Kay! We purchased our floors from Troy Furniture and Carpet (Troy Flooring Center), in Troy MO. They installed the floors and did a wonderful job. They've installed floors for us for over thirty years.
Thank you, Bonnie. We purchased the secretary several years ago. The manufacturer is Hooker Furniture.

Thank you, Pinky! I remember taking that picture at the lake. I think the sunflower may have been lying on a white tablecloth. The table was against a white wall.

Thank you, Cynde. I found the pine cone flatware at Bass Pro Shop online a few years ago. I'm not sure if it is still available. I can't remember the mfg. The only place I've seen it is Bass Pro.

Thanks Charla! Some of my decorating FB group friends are experimenting with this recipe. We've "known" each other around 15 or so years and our topics are wide ranged.:-) Jim and I decided the beans are very good, but a tad bit more heat is needed. Not a lot, just a tad.

Hi Linda Thank you! The framing is a door from an old cabinet. I used it in the breakfast room of our former home. I'm adding a link to a post I did a couple of years ago, with a good photo of the door/frame. http://backporchmusings.typepad.com/blog/2013/10/breakfast-room-changes.html

Hi Shirley. Thanks! We used to have a charcoal smoker. We marinated brisket in Italian dressing and smoked it for several hours. Very good.

Hi Pam When I was younger my hair was thicker and not coarse, now it is pretty fine/thinner. That is one reason I keep it short. It is cut sort of in layers. Actually almost like the old pixie cuts just a bit longer. I have a natural wave and that helps a lot.

I just said to J this afternoon,I might put small white pumpkins in that bowl. Right now it holds the pool key. Everyone knows where it is. When the pool closes, I'll put the key away. I might see if I can find some white pumpkins.:-) No one has painted the concrete in the subdivision. Might have to go through HOA for approval.

Thanks Tracy! The rug is from Overstock. It is the Alliyah handmade black New Zealand Blend Wool rug (8' x 10'). I was so happy when I ran across this rug when I was looking for a Fall and Winter rug for the great room. I'm not sure if it is still available.

Wow! Megan we drove over to Waterways Apartments this morning and saw those amazing hydrangeas. I took a few photos. We also enjoyed seeing the water feature. Beautiful place! Thanks again!

Thanks Kathy! The flatware is from Bass Pro Shop. The plate is from there also. I have a set of four of the cabin plates and wish I had four more. Last time I checked they weren't offering the dishes. I think you can still get the flatware from Bass Pro.

This sounds like a beautiful combination. Were you thinking of paint, furnishings or both?

I love Texas BBQ, Pinky. I spent a lot of time there growing up and lived there several years when I was a child. Daddy was born and raised there. My grandfather had an amazing Chili recipe. I make mine like he did. His recipe was secret. He made chili for restaurants in the Dallas area. He never gave his recipe to anyone but me. He would prepare the chili at home and deliver it to the cafes.:-)

He does beef, but really shines with pork BBQ.

I don't know where Alabama stood on that particular survey, Jenna. I just know the top three and I was surprised Missouri was placed there, even though I know we have great BBQ, we rarely are recognized for it.:-)

Hi Susan Thanks so much! I found the pillow at Pier One Imports a few months ago. I'm not sure if it is still available.
