There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends.
I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.

Getting ready for Easter

What does your Easter outfit look like this year?

If you have been a follower of my blog, you know
that I love vintage postcards and photos.
My favorite images are from the Edwardian period.
Here are some vintage postcards that I found on a CD
that I purchased several years ago.

I want to apologize for not having any creative items
 to show you lately on my blog.  I just haven't
had the energy to create the past couple of
weeks.  Most of my spare time has been
sleeping.  I know this isn't really a good
excuse for not creating...but I have this
problem that once I start something,
I just have to finish it.  So I have been
avoiding my art room.

I have been reading your blogs.  Thank you for
sharing all of your wonderful Easter and spring
projects.  I have enjoyed my visits to your blogs!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Beautiful Day

It was a beautiful day here for us.  Temperature was 88 degrees.
Don and I went out this morning to purchase some plants
for the front door and the screen patio.
It was so crowded...everyone had the same plans for the morning.
I will share some photos with you next week.

This week I scanned several of my Edwardian
postcards to share with you.
I really love the Edwardian era fashions for the hats
and dresses of the period.
Most were beautiful but there were some that
were just awful.


Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Vintage Finds

Thought I would share some vintage finds with you this Friday.
I can never pass up a great deal on a vintage plate with roses.

I purchased these vintage greeting cards the last couple of weeks.

Now for the big winner!
I found this vintage dictionary a couple weeks ago.

Wishing you a wonderful and safe weekend!

Mail Surprise

Look at my mail surprise!
Deb ~ Garage Sale Gal ~ and I have several swap exchanges during the year. This is my Easter swap goodies.  Aren't they just a cutest?  Deb also sent me some  chocolate covered pretzels,
my favorite. 
But I have eaten those goodies.
Thank you Deb for your kindness!

We had horrible weather here yesterday.
The three dogs and me were our center
closet for about an hour during the storms. 
Surprisingly the dogs seem to know the routine
and go right in the closet with me.

Today the sun is shining!

Wishing you a wonderful day.
