|Ummm... that is a teabag floating in the cup. :)|
Thank you for the kind words about my house, I am a believer that one can have a lovely home on a very tight budget. But it takes thinking of our house as a canvas and activities such as searching Goodwill, thrift stores, and garage sales as the work of an artist. :)
I'm going to write more about the "weather" here but we did not come through it unscathed. We're in damage control status as I write.
Added: Thank you very much to whomever sent me an anonymous gift "card" to Amazon through e-mail. It was VERY much appreciated.
Here are some answers to recent questions:
The teacup (shown above) is one of a series Starbucks sold years ago, both Holiday and non-Holiday designs. I love those cups and I was disappointed when they switched to another design. This one was purchased at the antique mall for a couple of dollars.
Yes, one of the DVDs is a sweet Christmas movie starring Olivia Newton John called A Christmas Romance. It's kinda dorky in a good way, about a banker learning the importance of simplicity. I like the way the Olivia Newton John character tries to keep her home by using skills like baking.
The flowers on the sideboard cabinet are actually silk. They look very real. I don't care what professional designers say about using silk and dried flowers, I like them so I use them. And they are mostly found on the cheap while thrifting.
Kristi, I will forever be thankful for the Old British Castles brown transferware you gave me! Just love them and I think of your family when I use them. Were they your mother's or your grandmother's dishes?
Well, it appears you can access the Granny Miller blog again without finding rotten SPAM. I have added it back to the sidebar. But this is not the Wordpress address we were originally suppose to link to when she quit blogging. The Wordpress site has been deleted, I expect due to someone hacking it. Also, there is a recent post. I am confused...
Miss Victoria can use your prayers, her paw is very sore again and causing her to limp. This is an "on again-off again" situation so it is time to once again visit Dr. Lisa.
Oh, someone had left a comment about the very large picture in the Header and how it made the blog look ugly. That is the default size on Blogger and I lost all the headers I designed to be smaller when my laptop crashed. I hope the picture does not keep you from reading further! I'm rather fond of that river...
I hope to write more about our storm experience on Saturday!
