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!

Special welcome for the girls(I see I misspelled deuce, lol)

They wanted to pose in front of the beauty bush.

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!

Mary Turns 77 and I'm a Grandma!

Hi All,
Sorry I haven't posted in soooooo long.  I became a new Grandma, so lots of time spent with the new little one.  Momma and baby are great and I am enjoying every moment!  Also, getting ready to help drive my parents to Florida, so they can stay in our home down there for a couple of months.
All this said, I couldn't let my girl Mary Tyler Moore's birthday pass, without a little tribute!
 Grandma and baby River
 Momma and her sweet little one
 Now on to Mary!  Don't you love that quilt skirt?!
 The two level apartment, so love this!
 BFF's, Mary and Rhoda
 That cute kitchen, sigh~
 The whole gang on Christmas
 This is an original still from the show, that I own
 She was always getting a phone call, lol
 She always had the best clothes!
I went right out and bought a coat like this, when I saw hers, in Season 1 of the show.  Wish I still had it :(
Hope you all have a great and blessed 2014!
