Boy Child "Tied the Knot" this Weekend.......

...and as they dashed through the bubbles,

was waiting on the toolbox 
in his wedding attire...

Have a lovely day!

Master Thomas......

This is where he lives....

And sleeps....

And studies the wonders

of his hand

and of the world around him...

and sometimes he and Pops 
have long conversations about politics
and the state of the rest of the world.

which makes Master Thomas very tired...

 Master Thomas
born 11/11/11

He can discuss world affairs with you, stick out his tongue,
and, yes, of course, my grandson is reading!

Have a lovely day!

Oh My! So ReTrO!

Tucked away on a bottom shelf 
in the very back of the flea market booth
 in an old cardboard box .....

was this beautifully ViNtAgE and ReTrO

Mid-Century Melamine Melmac Oneida Deluxe Dinnerware Set!!

for a delightfully low price!

Reminds me of the Flower Party 
I had for my 12 year-old birthday party back in 1968.
(Everyone had to dress like a flower, and I dressed as a Daisy:) 
These dishes would have been perfect!

It IS true that 
One man's trash is another man's treasure :)

Have a LoVeLy day,

P.S.  This treasure will be in my new ViNtAgE shop in a few days
    along with some more delightful "finds"!

Oh, for Heaven's Sake ....Not . Another . Dog . !

Well, Dear Reader,  
The furthermost thing from my mind when I left home today was a new dog ....
so ... how . did . this . happen . ?... arrgghh!  

I was minding my own business when I walked into Chapman's Thrift Mall.
But right there in the entrance were a small crowd of people, a mama dachshund, and three puppies.
They were GIVING the puppies away.
This one chose me, and, well, 
need I say more?

Once Puppy and I were in the car and on our way to Hatchechubbee (after a quick detour to PetSmart to get the Royal Canin food he had been eating), Husband called.  The puppy was whining and husband heard ...
Is that a dog?
Where are you?
In the car.
Dead Silence ... then
You didn't get another dog, did you?
Well, yes, you see, they had these puppies at Chapman's ....
The lady said if it didn't work out I could bring him back to her.

do you think it's going to work out?

Have a lovely day!

P.s. Looks like his name is going to be Buster Brown ....but you can call him Buster:)

Dear Reader,
      Your Pie is a pizza place based on the Subway concept of making pizza to order as you watch.
They specialize in FrEsH ingredients, 
and they make it easy for those with gluten and dairy allergies.   

Each pizza is 10 inches (a good personal size)

Your first choice is the hand-tossed dough...
 whole wheat

Next you choose your homemade sauce ....
Traditional Marinara
 Fresh Basil Pesto 
Sun-dried Tomato Basil 
Zesty BBQ
 Our Hot Sauce
 Ranchy Marinara (dairy)
Roasted Garlic Olive Oil
 Spicy Thai

Next you choose an all-natural cheese ....
(Shredded or Fresh or Low-Fat) 
Soy Cheese

Then, on to the FrEsH toppings ....
... of which there are too many to list ...

And the Premium toppings ...
a variety of meats in addition to 
pine nuts, green apples, sun-dried tomatoes, 
artchoke hearts,anchovies, and roasted red pepper
(They star the ones that contain gluten)

This is what I ordered:

Whole wheat dough, 
a mixture of the Sun-dried Tomato Basil & Roasted Garlic olive Oil sauces
Fresh Mozzarella & Feta cheese
Fresh spinach, mushrooms, basil, oregano, & tomatoes
 and ... only $6.95!

Hubby ordered the same dough and sauce:

with Fresh Mozzarella, spinach, mushrooms, oregano,
and the Premium Topping ($1 extra for these)
His was also Dee-LISH 
and cost only $7.95!!

oh,  Husband also purchased a Stella Artois draft beer (which was also very good) to go with his pizza

Husband is doing a build-out for a YOUR PIE Pizza
in Columbus, GA so we went to visit this one in Roswell, GA to check it out:)
I can not wait  until it opens in September!!

Have a lovely day!
P.S.  I know it has been awhile, but I have been busy setting up a new Etsy Shoppe (This one is Vintage)

This Little Puggle Came to Visit....

Dear Reader,
This little puggle named Chloe came to visit ....
(A Puggle is half Pug, half poodle (Oops!  Beagle) .. or so they tell me:)

She came for an overnight visit with her country cousins. 
(She herself is a city dog.)
So, of course, we all had to go for a good ol' country walk, but... first, Bud must inspect this odd little cousin attached to a red strap:)

...And the odd little country cousin must acclimate herself

to her new surroundings:) ...

O.K....I think we're ready ....

And off we go!

Oh, my, the things these country cousins will do!
Not I, says the Puggle.

Ahhh...home is in sight!

Plumb tuckered out ....
Night night, Cuz ...

Have a lovely day, My Friends,
and try to stay cool!

To Be or Not to Be .......

Dear Reader,

Just about every morning I sit outside sipping on a large cup of fresh-brewed coffee ...
slowly waking up as I absorb the world around me.  

Sometimes I talk to God and read my morning devotions ... 

Sometimes I marvel anew at God's creation

Many times I ask Him to order my day as he sees fit
and to help me to keep my eyes on Him ... 

but sometimes I just sit :)

Sometimes it's good to "just be" ...

Have a lovely day!
