If Apple MacBook Pro Is So Great….

Apple MacBook Pro

I've never considered myself a lucky person! I've accepted that fact over the years and try and just go with it.  It seems to me that if something is not going to go right, it will happen to me -; Now I rarely do posts that are what I consider to be "whining".  We all […]

Vintage Animal Planter Collection

Through thrifting I've unknowingly started many collections.  What's the saying, it only takes two to make a collection? I've certainly got that covered!  Last month my milk glass collection was shared with you, and today I'm sharing my vintage animal planter collection.

Computer Saga Continues

Pulling out hair

The week before last I was typing away on my computer when I knocked over a  full 32oz glass of ice tea on my laptop keyboard. This event is when my computer saga began...I think this might explain how I felt...

Out In My Greenhouse

Stock Flower

Yesterday was such a beautiful, sunny day.  Most of the day was spend in my greenhouse. I've had the greenhouse for about eight years, and haven't used it the last two?  My decision to buy it was an easy one, I love gardening/propagation and it saves me money.  The initial investment

Milk glass started appealing to me a few years back... and seems to be growing lately.  I love it...but do I really need another obsession?  Last summer is when it really "got" a hold of me .  I was at vintage yard sale and she had several pieces that I haven't run across while thrifting.  […]

Winter Cozy Cabins

Last week was one of those kind of weeks where nothing ran smoothly.  Wednesday morning my car's passenger tire blew out.  Not able to get a hold of Mr. C, I left my car, walked in the freezing cold (no gloves or hat) to find shelter until I could reach him. Later on we bought […]

Tiny Homes On The Market

Small Home, Westmont VA

Remember when smoking was cool (if your old enough)?  McMansion's use to be cool too but that trend is rapidly changing. Small space living is back in vogue for many reasons. The Charmer isn't a tiny home, but she is small, 1,182 square feet. When I purchased her, as a single woman in 1987, I […]
