What's black and white...

...and red all over?


I had such fun making Mollie ... 
and her little dog, too!

I scream for...


...ice cream! 
I know, I know ... it's July you say!
But I say it's the perfect month for ice cream ...
or, better yet, a sundae topped with hot fudge and a cherry!
Mmmm...!

Happy Weekend!

How about them apples?


We received a yummy surprise this week! 
In honor of our anniversary, a very sweet person sent us a pair of chocolate and caramel covered apples!! I told her they were too pretty to eat ... but ~ you know me ~ I couldn't resist! And trust me, they tasted as good as they looked!!

Thank you, Mary...from the bottom of our ♥♥s!!
Hugs,

Here's to us!

My husband and I will celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary next week. 
How did 30 years go by so quickly? 
It must have happened while we were raising two beautiful children ... 
while we were buying and creating homes in four different states ... 
while we were living in a foreign country ... 
while we were busy with our careers, goals, dreams, and life. 
Thirty years sounds like a long time but, trust me, it isn't. 
Would I do it all over again? 
In a heartbeat!

Here's to us!

My inner tomboy...


You are probably going to think I'm strange { let's just say quirky ... I like the sound of that  adjective better } but I've been searching for an old toy truck for a very long time. If you've ever priced antique trucks, you'd be amazed at the prices they fetch ... and being the tightwad that I am, I could never fathom spending that many pennies on one! 

While out junking this weekend, however, my darling hubby walked up to me with one in his hand and asked, "Are you interested in this?" Does he not know me?!! { Of course he does ... otherwise he never would have picked up that truck in the first place! } I hissed under my breath, "Yes!" I couldn't believe my good fortune! And then he said, "There are more." I nearly fainted. "Where?" I followed him and snatched up two more trucks lickety~split. We walked over to pay for our treasure trove and the owner of the trucks said, "You're taking my old trucks?" The first words out of my mouth were, "No take-backs!!" ; )  He proceeded to tell us how he played with those old trucks when he was a young boy in the 1950s. I thanked him and told him that I would give them a very good home ...

And I will ... I promise.
 { Pinky swear! }

Serendipitously yours,
