About Me

My photo
My passion is decorating with vintage and antique finds on a budget. There was a time when I wouldn't have dreamed of going into a goodwill. That day has passed. :) My second love is scrapbooking all those special family moments for posterity, and I recently set up my very own scrapbooking room. I have three beautiful children, two sons and a daughter as well as a sweet (albeit full blooded Yankee) daughter-in-law and two grandgirls. I also enjoy gardening, meeting new friends and relaxing on my patio in the evenings with a glass of fine wine. During the summer of 2001, I spent two glorious weeks at Kennedy Space Center. I've been somewhat of a space geek ever since....

First Day of Summer Vacation

Hello, my friends.  I've been in a dark place these last three weeks since my mom passed away.  What a sweet, lovely lady she was..... and I will miss her dearly.  That heartbreaking loss coupled with the stress of closing out a school year made for some sleepless nights.  But sometimes we have to push ourselves to continue this business called living.  My mom's dementia caused her to forget that my dad died three years ago and she would often ask where he was and why he wasn't coming to see her.  When I let my kids know she was gone, but finally reunited with my dad, the love of her life, my middle child texted me this message, "Yup, PawPaw came and picked her up and they're off on a hot date right now."  :)   Gotta love that kid...

I spent the day yesterday working in the yard. What better way to welcome summer than that?????  My hostas are beginning to bloom.

And the kittens are running all over the place.....  Time to find them good homes.....

I stopped off at Lowe's and filled a buggy full..... And came home and planted it all.  Pictures to come!

Here's a glimpse.... New patio umbrella.....

And my favorite purchase of all...... New throw pillows for my outdoor wicker chairs!

Stay tuned for more improvements to come!!!!!!

I Love You, Mom

For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands.

My beautiful, loving, classy, headstrong, dear, sweet 
89-year-old mom passed away today. 

Isn't she just beautiful?  My heart is heavy tonight but
I know that she is in a better place and rejoicing with my father in heaven. 
I love you, mom!!!!
