Hey MJ! What a wonderful Mother's Day. I love the chalkboard menu and the food looks delish!
Toggle Commented Jul 11, 2015 on happy days at master"PIECES" of my LIFE
I just got an old typewriter from my dad he had out in his barn--he had gotten it from a company he had worked for. It's from the late 60's/70's, huge and heavy. It took me forever to clean it up. I did a Google search on the model I have and there was some obscure website that had a scanned copy of the original owner manual. I was able to disassemble most of the typewriter to get all the gunk out. And I ordered a new ribbon off Amazon!

That's a great word! My OLW for 2015 is see. Still trying that one out. I did sign up for Ali Edwards OLW class--I need the monthly reminder to myself. Your blog looks great and I've been enjoying reading all your decor posts. As part of my OLW, I want to make time to see old friends...I would love to get together for lunch sometime!
I am attempting to revive the blog. I'll let you know how it goes. Emergency help may be needed. Continue reading

It's probably from living in a rural sub-division that does it, but I love a good city. And London, it's a favorite. Since this is my third trip to London in eighteen months, I thought I would list (some of)... Continue reading

Her Royal Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Filed under "being-in-the-right-place-at-the-right-time", I was in Salisbury today with my mom and dad after a visit out to Stonehenge. As it turned out, the Queen was in Salisbury for a royal visit. I was... Continue reading

It's almost December. The year-end holidays have already begun and it's almost December. And that means, December Daily. I ordered the December Daily kit offered by Studio Calico; I received all the papers, embellishments, and trims but the American Crafts... Continue reading

Just a bit of housekeeping on the blog. I actually started a redo several months ago and got hung up on a bit of coding. Frustration set in and the blog was left alone. For a long time. But this... Continue reading

Lee, thank you so much for the kind words on your blog today! You have no idea how it made my day. I used Clinique lotion for years too, then switched to another line a couple years ago that offered more (cough,mumblig) anti-aging properties.I have several moleskine journals and while I love white towels at hotels, I really like colored towels at home but pristine white bed sheets.

On any given day, I rely on any number of everyday things to get me through: an alarm clock, that first cup of tea, my iPhone, my car. I also rely on a number of things that, while not necessary,... Continue reading

Good intentions. I always intend to blog more, get my scrapbooking projects done, print out or post my photos. Good intentions, I have to say, don't get me very far. Good intentions are like New Year's resolutions--quickly made and just... Continue reading

February 2011 will be remembered as the month that I got sick, stayed sick and got sicker. I came down with the flu on the first of the month--fever, cold, cough, aches--all those Nyquil symptoms. A week later, the aches... Continue reading

Kraft paper packages tied up with pink ribbons. For my girlies. Still sick but I did manage to pick up some spring outfits for my girlies. No candy, no books, no Valentine's card even. Continue reading
