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.

Sorry I have been missing in action from
my blog.  I was in the hospital again.
Illness can take a toll on you both
physically and mentally.  Especially
when there are so many unanswered
questions.  Thankfully Don was
there to help in my questions.

I am hoping to finish some projects
for a swap I am participating with
a fall theme.  Needless to say I am
a little late in getting out my package.
I really dislike being late for a

I will try to catch up on visiting
blogs this week or next.  So please
accept my apology for not being
able to visit.  Blog land has
offered so many wonderful
friendships.  Thank you for
visiting my blog and leaving
such kind words!

Wishing you a wonderful day!

Rainy Mondays...

Hope your weekend was a great one.
The weather is starting to get cooler
in the evenings and early mornings.
Today was a rainy Monday.
In between do laundry, I played with some
vintage images using Photo Shop.

Here are some vintage postcards for
fall projects.  Enjoy!

Here are some photos of Gracie.
Unfortunately the house breaking
is not going so well with new one!
I really dislike the term house
breaking for training pets.
But today there was some success.
The training papers were used for
the first time.  I really have had
a hard time getting her to
learn those papers for not
for play.  But it is kind of
funny to see this 2' x 2' paper
go running across the room.

Here is Chelsea and Gracie laying on my papers
next the desk.  I was working on some new Excel
files this morning. 

My visit with my sister Carol was wonderful.
We had a great time shopping!
Yes, I did let her relax some while
visiting.  She read three books.

Wishing you a wonderful week
dear friends!

A sister visit...

My sister Carol is coming to visit us.  I am
looking forward to some outings with her.

Wishing all of my dear friends a great weekend!

Thank you for visiting with me today!

Vintage finds and an introduction...

Hope your weekend was a great one!

As promised I am sharing some photos
of my vintage finds with you.

But first I want to introduce you to
our new addition ~~
introducing Ms. Gracie Hope! 
She is now 10 weeks, 4.6 lbs.
She isn't going to replace our Sadie...
but we just love our Bostons.  She
is already showing her personality. 
Though the house training is not
going too well...she doesn't like the
grass too much.  But I have been
blessed with patience!
It seems that I can only take
a good photo of her sleeping.

Now on to the my vintage finds.
Here are some of the vintage books I
found this summer.

Here are some of my
vintage Christmas finds.

I actually found six of these goodies.
Though some of them have lost a wing. 
I still think they will look great displayed.

Some of the vintage dresses I
found during the summer.

If you follow my blog, you know I can't resist
vintage postcards.  I found about another 250
of them this summer.  Some of these goodies
will be on my handmade Christmas
goodies this year.

More vintage cabinet cards...
I can't resist these lovelies either!

I found these this spring while at Orange Beach.
There is some rub marks on them.  I really don't
know much about these ladies.  So I guess I will
be doing some research.  I may list these
lovelies in the my Etsy shop.

More hankies for my collection!

It takes a lot of courage to show
your dreams to someone else.
