And I do too! 


  1. The final day of winter is over for me and I feel sad. Today was quite warm and Have hardly had to wear cool weather clothing this winter. I dread summer and spring is a brief season here.

    I love your finds, as I always do. I dream of what I could do and that is good because I have lost so many dreams. I need to dream again.

    God bless you today and always. Get a Mitzie hug from me.

    1. I have always said that I could never cope with the heat and humidity that you experience! We all need dreams to hold on to! God bless, love and hugs. xoxo

  2. So many ideas out there..I follow young women on IG and Oh my their homes and decor! Unbelievable!Pinterest live:) On stories:)

    1. I,have never heard of Pinterest Live? People have beautiful,homes today. When I was young we could never have afforded a home like that! Over here in the UK ther is a housing shortage and it’s delicious riven the country cost of housing so,high that most people can’t afford to,buy homes anymore. It’s sad! Todd’s niece and nephew are in their 40s and they still live at home! Xo

  3. I love the idea for the fall mantle. I don't have a mantle but I decorate the dining room buffet so this would work there nicely. I always start decorating for fall on Labor day weekend which is to be very summer like so I may put it off till next weekend. It's supposed to be a bit cooler then.

    1. Happy Labour Day Pam! Hope you have a great weekend with family and friends! xoxo

  4. You are an inspiration when it comes to crochet items. I always love them and only wish I would bet myself in gear and do something more than look at them. I love the Butterscotch Cowl and purse, just adorable.
    I really like the block stitch and it looks like it might be easy to do. I need to start with easy before I get into anything big. I will look into this one.
    I can't believe it is time to change out decorations from summer to fall. Where did the time go?
    I would love to have a Jane Austin tea party; what a fun idea.
    Cute clothes items; thanks for sharing them.
    I love Quiche; so this looks like a good recipe.
    I wish I was an artist; I would love the art items.
    I do enjoy anything vintage.
    The scrap dishcloth is a good one. I have some yarn scrapes and could start my crocheting are knitting with them.
    Blessings and big hugs for you! I always love your finds!!

    1. Thanks so much LeAnn! I am always cheered to see a comment from you! You are a blessing to me! xoxo
