It was Valentine's Day. I was sitting here at my desk, minding my own business and working on a future post when my desk and chair began vibrating. As the desk and chair vibrated, something began rattling. I'm not sure if it was something on my desk or the glass in the windows above the desk. It may have been the glass because it sounded a bit like dishes or glasses rattling in a cupboard. Here were my thoughts, all passing through my mind in … [Continue Reading...]

Ever watch The Tonight Show? At the risk of dating myself, I remember when it was hosted by Johnny Carson. When I was just a kid I used to sneak and stay up late, laughing at some of the skits he used to do. My favorite shows were the ones where they brought animals on. Funny memories! I'm sure by now you've heard, the show's most recent host, Jay Leno, is retiring and the new host starting on February 17th will be Jimmy Fallon. Jimmy … [Continue Reading...]

Welcome to the 283rd Tablescape Thursday! Happy "day-before" Valentine's Day! I love creating whimsical tablescapes and I love creating themed tablescapes. This table setting is a combination of both, a Valentine's Day setting with an extra-large helping of whimsy on the side. It all started when I stopped by the dollar store about a week ago to check out their gift wrap. While there I caught sight of some playing cards and an … [Continue Reading...]

The ice is here and still falling. I think it ends around mid-day tomorrow. The birds don't appear to be coming to the feeders. I can't see the food so I'm pretty sure it's frozen up inside the feeder and not dropping down. Or maybe it's the ice on the ring where they would normally stand that's keeping them away. I put bird seed on the rails of the deck last night before turning in, but it's all iced over and hidden now. I had … [Continue Reading...]

When I was growing up, one of my fave television shows was The Mary Tyler Moore Show. I was just 13 years old when it first aired. I think every young girl back then wanted to grow up to be just like Mary. She was beautiful, had her own apartment, cute clothes and an exciting career--all very important stuff when you're 13. :) Do you remember Mary's "M" on the wall in her small studio apartment? (Screen shot from You Tube … [Continue Reading...]

This was in the Atlanta paper today, a quote from one of the most respected meteorologist in Atlanta: "Do be prepared for massive power outages as this is likely to be a massive weather event,” Burns said Monday evening. Yikes! Here we go again, only this sounds even worse. Today I stopped by the grocery store on the way home from running a few errands. Here's what I found. The milk section... The egg section: … [Continue Reading...]

Welcome to the 263rd Metamorphosis Monday! Recently, I came across a Before and After online that just blew me away. Angela who blogs at UnFussy Fussiness had a large play set in her backyard that her children had sadly outgrown and were no longer using. Shouldn't it be against the law or something for our children to do that? They grow up way, way too fast! Angela decided it was time to do something with the play set, something that was … [Continue Reading...]

Remember all those pictures I had stuck on my phone, the ones I couldn't download to share? Among them was a shopping trip I took to Ikea back in December. Ikea is only about 30 minutes away from my home, but I so rarely drive in that direction it feels like it's in another state sometimes. Do you ever shop there? I love checking out the unique pieces they get in. I had never been there around Christmas and the store had a lot of things in … [Continue Reading...]
