Just My Thoughts

For eye candy, our little angel face for Thanksgiving in her blessing dress she wore in August. What could be more eye candy than a sweet baby? Forgive me, I'm biased! :-)

Her mummy is behind her nibbling on her heels to make her smile in this one.

I could be organizing my craft room and getting rid of some of the fabric in there, which I started several days ago. I could be sitting in the family reading a book, which I love doing and have read between 25 or 30 these past 8 or 9 weeks. I could be folding a batch of clothing I washed today and have 3 more to do tonight. I could be painting the holes in the kitchen wall where we finally got the cabinet put up after taking it down and relocating it the 2nd time. But I'm not doing any of those things. I'm blogging.

I'm been thinking and rethinking blogging recently. Since I've not blogged very much recently and had the extra time to do things, it was rather freeing. But then I realized how much I'd miss it if I didn't blog anymore.

I have been surfing a tiny bit lately but nothing like I'd been doing. I know "to each his own", but I truly do like large photos when viewing a blog. Oh, it won't stop me but I prefer the ones with larger pictures of their beautiful decorating or crafts. That's why it takes me such a long time to do a blog post: the photos. The scans of the magazine I've done recently—and there are more to come—are the best I can do with those photos but they still take a heap o' fixing, chicks. I prefer my own photos because there is less "middle man" involved in them.

Some bloggers say to turn off your flash, but every single photo I take has my flash on. I'm hesitant to tell anyone how to take photos because it isn't just one thing; it's a lot of things. Familiarization with your camera is essential also. I'm no where near perfect, but I'm well pleased with how most of them turn out. Plus I resize them with my Photoshop to 800 pixels wide for each one so they'll all be uniform. I know, I know, I'd OCD.

Hubs and I had a hunger for BLTs tonight and indulged ourselves. Of course, I had to take pictures of the process since the tomato looked beautiful, actually it look perfect in every way, which just goes to show you beauty is only skin deep because although, it was beautiful, it was not flavorful.

Put it together and what have you got: BLT! Yummy. Yikes! Yeah, I know, I forgot to photograph the bacon, but you can see a bit of it peeking out under the lettuce.

Just a bit of eye candy for you.

I just love my Canon Rebel and these closeups I get with it.

Pink Saturday 11/27/2010

Once again it's Pink Saturday and the PS group wants to share lovely pink things with you. So please visit with Beverly of How Sweet The Sound and look at all the other participants by clicking on the logo below. Thank you!


I love decorating magazines—just looking through them brings happiness to this ol' brain. It truly does! And I get such good ideas just looking at them. It doesn't have to be the exact same thing, but something in the photo may trigger my thought processes for something else. That happens all the time.

That little basket hanging on the wall under the stairs with the dried branches in it gave me the idea to put flowers in just about anything I can hang or attach to a wall. I have them all over my house.

I am not a huge fan of sunflowers, but they look elegant in those red and green buckets and the green and red plaid pillow. This photo just makes you feel good.

Pink and red and flowers and checks, some of my favorite combinations.

Another beautiful combination of yellow and blue and a scroll arm sofa with plush cushions for sitting.

The white and rose harlequin carpet is what first drew my attention to this room along with the pink chairs and that fabulous mirror.

Same home but the bedroom. Another fabulous mirror. I'd take that one in a heartbeat.

Along with this beautiful bed and its beautiful sheets and covers.

Formal style has always been a love of mine, but it doesn't suit this home of ours. I love it though, especially this little rendezvous area of the living room. Fringe on sofas is of particular interest to me. The sofa I have now I saw in the showroom with fringe on it, but when I went back to get it, they had an upholsterer take it off because the sofa wasn't selling! Idaho just doesn't get it yet! Ooooh, but I have to tell you it was truly gorgeous.

Contemporary Wooden House,Wooden House

It isn’t necessary that you can’t have awesome water views if your home doesn’t located near an ocean. It coud be located on shores of some lake like this house on shores of Lake Walensee in Switzerland. The Walensee House is designed by K_M Architektur and features not only view of the lake but also view of beautiful mountains near by.

Being surrounded by nature the home is made mostly of wood which blends with surroundings very nice. Only large glazings and simplicity of shapes shows that it’s a piece of contemporary architecture work. The interior is also designed in quite minimalist style in order to highlight views of nature instead of furniture objects.

Happy Thanksgiving 11/25/2010

I'm most grateful this year for this little darling who chose to come to this family on earth. Her "do" is a bit frazzled today; after all, she just lies around on the floor all day. ;-) We'd trade her in for a more efficient model but we have high hopes for her and she's just so dang cute!

Happy Thanksgiving to each and every one of you today.

I'm thankful for a loving and kind Savior who loves me even though I fall so far short of his expectations (or maybe not, after all, He knows me better than anyone else in this world).

I'm thankful for a loving hubby who puts up with me no matter how nasty, mean, crazy, loudmouthed, obnoxious or unreasonable I get.

I'm grateful for my daughter and my son and grandchildren and for Miss Caroline who came to us fresh from Heaven this year. (She is getting more hair!)

I'm grateful for the health and stamina I DO have, especially when hubby told me recently—after complaining about my leg—to go sit down and count my blessings. What a man!

I'm grateful that I have a warm and cozy home and all the accoutrements it has inside like toilets, chairs, coconut pineapple cake(!), fridge, stove, bathtub which many in this world do not have.

I'm grateful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and what it means to each and every single person on this earth, even if they don't know it yet or choose to disbelieve it.

I'm grateful for 2 cars in my garage because I can remember not having ANY car and having to grocery shop with 2 babies in a stroller and a mile walk to the nearest grocery store.

I'm grateful there are brave young men and women who give up the comforts of home and family to go overseas and fight a war that keeps us safe from harm. I love these people, but especially the ones who never came back and the sacrifice their spouses and children made for their country. That is the ultimate sacrifice.

I'm grateful for the food we have knowing full well that other people in other countries aren't as blessed as we are. The U.S. is truly a very blessed nation and God willing will continue to be so.

Just a few things for eye candy and what I may be working on at the moment.

I hope your holiday is wonderful!
