Ahhhhhh-look at those bathing beauties!  Ahhhhhh-the days before gray hair, two chins, and cellulite.  (I speak only for myself!) 

In the words of Edith Bunker-those were the daysssssssssssss!

Yesterday's sunrise! 

The above two photos I took as I was looking for Rocco-aka Rat Bag.  He's up to his old tricks-running off to the woods.  I do love him anyway!

I've got two rugs going at the same time.  Go me! 

I'm reading The Hunger Games right now.  Now I have lots more names I can use-yes!

Have a good day!

Bird theme

I ordered this print from Emily Falconbridge a couple years ago.  I just put it in (taped it in, actually) this repurposed frame (it had homespun fabric with a felt star in it before) today.

My friend, Dawnie, gave me some Dove chocolate and this lovely notebook/journal.  She loves birds too.

My girlie bought me this mug after Christmas.

A suet feeder built for two!

We got snow again overnight, so lots of birdies at the feeder today.
Yes-a bird theme has emerged today and I love it!

Happy Saturday!

Oh, that beautiful blue sky and those amazing clouds!

The wind picked up this afternoon blowing these amazing clouds right by.

It's still so gusty out there, I'll be surprised if we don't lose power tonight.

Have a great weekend, everybody!

This and that

I found lichens in a heart shape.  Yes!

I was painting some frames yesterday.  I always use hubby's old farm truck for a work surface and I couldn't resist painting this (at least it's suppose to be-ha!) heart on the bed.

I'm addicted to cloud watching.  I keep waiting for a heart!

That little black blob is Rocco watching over.

Have a great day!

It's Wednesday and this is Wednesday

I was going to name this rug Tuesday, but I didn't finish it up till this morning and today is Wednesday.  I thought, "Dang-I wish Wednesday was a name."  Then I dug deep into the recesses of my mind and thought, "Hey, wasn't there a Wednesday on Addams Family."  I looked it up and oh, yes, there was!  Friday is Wednesday Addams' middle name, by the way.

This bright and cheery rug is made from thrifted sheets and t-shirts.

I can still use Sunday (think Nicole Kidman's daughter), Tuesday (think the actress Tuesday Weld), perhaps Friday (hey, it's Wednesday Addams' middle name).  If you know of anyone named Monday, Thursday or Saturday-please let me know!

Have a nice day!

Snow squalls

We had a few snow squalls here today.

It sure was beautiful!

If I'd have to guess what this junco was thinking, it would be, "What the heck!?"

A bunch o' juncos...

just hanging in my back yard.

I see pretty things-both big and small!

Corners of a teenage girl's room

When I walked into my niece's pink hued room today, I couldn't resist taking some photos of her colorful corners.  I love her room-it's beautiful, just like her!

It's an orange

It's an orange, but to Rocco-it's just a citrus flavored ball!
