Touring on Blogland

Hi All,
I was asked by my sweet friend, Susan of Ash Tree Cottage to participate in Touring on Blogland.  Since I would do anything for her, I will give it a shot!  You are to answer 4 questions about your blog, then tag three other bloggers to do the same.  Susan and I started our blogs about the same time and became fast friends, and we had "adopted" each other as sisters.  You see, we are both only children, but that is not where the similarities stop.  We love our families, our pets, have many of the same items in our home, love old movies and are very nostalgic.  Give us some Mary Tyler or That Girl and we are in heaven.  My "sister" is also a Christian and I am, too.  Classy gal, that sister of mine!  Ok, on with the the tour!
I thought maybe you would like to see some of the critters, hanging around the yard.
I love frogs, and here are two.  One even plays tennis!

More froggies!

Another  frog friend

This is my new addition.  A wind spinner

A memento from our Bed and Breakfast.  That is a caricature of our beloved  Daisy dog

Quack!

And again, our beloved Daisy dog is flying with the angels.  A stone piece pays tribute to her, under and rose climber.

On to the questions:
1. What am I working on right now?

To be honest, I will let you all know that my husband has been diagnosed with tonsil cancer.  We are in week 5 of treatment.  Prognosis is good and that is where my full attention and devotion is, to getting him well!  Prayers always appreciated.

2.  How does my work differ from others?

I don't really think about the differences, I just write what I feel like.  Hopefully, it is something you all enjoy.

3.  Why Do I Write/Create What I Do?

I just write whatever I feel like showing to you, on that given day.

4.  How Does My Writing Process Work?

Normally, due to time limitations, it is pretty much the same.  Picture and description.  There are so many great writers out there and I applaud you.  I am hoping someday to become better at that!

I am passing on the torch to...

Linda at Linda's Life Journal
You will not find a more family oriented or sweet, true person that Linda

BJ at Sweet Nothings
What a spitfire.  Love her spirit and her love of family!

Ann at A Sentimental Life
A girl from the same hometown as me!  She loves the history of her family and her roots to our hometown.  You will find lots of vintage on her site!

This is a long post, but I hope you enjoyed it.
Best,
Robin

Garden Tour 2014

Hi All,
I went out and snapped some pictures of my garden to share with you.  This is the front of the yard, only.  On the next post,  I will share the backyard.
Enjoy!

My Kitchen...

Hi All,
I haven't done a post for this blog for a while and realized I haven't invited you into my kitchen, for a while, either!  Come on in...
Since the last time you were here, I have painted all the lower cabinets back to their original white.  I did have the lower ones,  an apple green.  The wall behind the stove went from apple green to yellow...


The original breakfast nook now houses an old crate with cookbooks and hubby's mail,  and Granny's Hoosier cabinet... 

A new stainless refrigerator....

My kitchen calendar.  I love that old stove!

No kitchen post of mine would be complete without highlighting that great old Flair. She was built in 1965.   Love this stove/oven so much!

Excuse me Theodore, Momma needs to get to her chair to post!  Hope you enjoyed coming to my kitchen :)

My New Blog!

Hi All,
I hope you are all getting enough of Winter!  We sure are in Illinois.  Snow and sub 0 temps!  I wanted you all to know that I have started another blog.  It is called, All Things Back In The Day.  I am such a retro gal, so I thought I could find some neat inspiration to share with you.

Click HERE to visit my new blog!
The first post features my Flair stove.  Here is Samantha from Bewitched with hers.
Love to have you follow!
