And I do too!!


  1. Marie, once again, I am in awe of your finds and have a heap of things to drool over. I love so many of these things and thank you for sharing them.

    I am about to settle in for an orgy of watching the olympics. I love gymnastics etc and this is the week I like to watch. Tears fell for FIji this morning with their first ever gold. I am sorry for Great Britain but I am proud of those men. Many of them have a harder life and it is an impoverished place. But the people are so very nice, or they were in my experience.

    God bless your day and have a little fun on the way.

  2. So pleased for Fiji Suzan. We have missionaries serving here from Fiji and a couple from Fiji in our church congregation. They are such a beautiful and humble people! God bless your day also! I have bought myself a Birthday gift today in a calligraphy set. Here's hoping I can do something with it! xoxo

  3. Hi Marie, you should definitely make the toffee dip, it looks amazing! Spent a very wet day in Betwys Coed and Llandudno yesterday. My nephew recently married a lovely girl from Singapore and her family have come over to meet his family before they go back to Singapore to start their new life together. It was quite an emotional day, but they will be coming back once a year so that's something. The house move is still progressing so it could be early September when we move! Lots of love xxx

  4. Yes, we have a bunch of missionaries coming tomorrow for a BBQ. I think I will make the toffee dip with apples for the missionary that is gulten intolerant! Your nephew and his new wife are lucky that they can come home at least once a year! I can only wish! Love and hugs! xoxo

  5. Hahaha Noah spent part of the day with us here and examined my skin..he is so honest:( I'll stop here..

    Fun finds again..and your gingerbread felted homes are adorabler:)

  6. Oh, haha Monique. Children can be so brutally honest! I say no more! Love and hugs! xoxo

  8. The tuna melt looks yummy! There were several items that I will take a further look at. You come up with so many unique ideas; thanks for this one. My favorites was the arm flab one; I ready checked that one out. The 7 day productive plan looks like a good one; there's some children that could use that one. Gosh, I want to eat more than the portions. I too love love the peas in a pod necklace.
    Blessings and hugs for you sweet friend~

  9. The mysteries of the internet Sybil! Who can fathom them out! So strange! (((hugs))) Love you! xoxo
