Colorful pottery and dishes...old or new..



Sooo many pretties to ooogle over..




Favorite Shoe: Cros shoes and clogs and fun colors...comfortable too...Favorite all time style of Shoe: Mary Janes..



My sign: I'm a summer baby.. but my soul belongs to the fall...

Is this picture... cool or what?! Cute babies...

Favorite Foods: oh! This is tough to narrow down to one! So I didn't! Fresh Fruits and Veggies always ....




Good strong coffee with lots of real cream!! Everyday!! Use to be a big 'Tea drinker' but changed after menopause to coffee... go figure!?!


Pies, almost any type ...I make great crust, something I am really proud of!! Really!



A favorite snack: Salsa, chips and sour cream!!!! yummm.............

Deep Red!

Shades of Green..


Rich Chocolate Brown!


Favorite Color combination...

Oh my! Here we go.. Favorite Animals... narrowed it down to 3 ...are you still with me?!

of coarse, the Beautiful Brown Bunny.. in all his glory!


Adorable cheeky, fluffy bunnies...

OMG!! I had to include this big fellow!! Wish I could just hold him... but might be a tussle...look at those paws!!


Love Fancy Gold Fish..When I was little there was a court yard in a place we lived with a pond full of them... couldn't stay away from.. over the years we have had aquariums of them...

I love kitty cats of all types!! but there is something about the Gray Cat..We have 2..



Favorite Flowers, managed to keep it at 3! Bleeding Heart, old scented Roses, and Primulas.


Because of our Planting Zone old Roses do the best here ..hardy and abundant !!


Love everything about Primulas.. Would have include 'Chinese lanterns' but no good pictures of them..

Where I Live: the beautiful Northwoods...Summers are mild, Winters well ...sometimes mild! Fall is the most lovely and Spring is a close second..

My Worst Bad Habit... Easy... Wasting Time!!

My Favorite Season :



Favorite Holiday:This was a toss-up Christmas or Halloween ..Halloween wins this time!

Never tired of looking at that face..


While blog hopping the other night I saw this fun game on 'Crafting by Candlelight' http://www.craftingbycandlelight.blogspot.com/ ...hmm.... I wanna play! Made up my own questions and typed answers in search 'Google Images' or 'Yahoo Images' [I did both] then select pictures for the answer.. Cute huh?

Finally I have the house in order.. my suitcases packed,' projects/swaps in a box' to take with me... and dear husband will be a bachelor for awhile getting alot of woodworking projects done while I spend some time at my daughter's home with the grandkids... Recently my daughter has been doing the' Dream Dinners 'and happy with ..Has anyone tried them? Here's is the website: http://www.dreamdinners.com .

Hi! While I actually don't have any time to sit behind the computer at all, I'm blog hopping and that's how I come up here. I like your blog very much! This photo post is so nice and I recognize a lot, about wasting time for instance. Well it's not waisting I guess, it's doing things at the wrong time. Now I'm reading (and very much enjoying your blog). But as school starts tomorrow after the Christmas Holidays I have to do a lot. I have promised the schoolteacher to make her a cd full of pictures, and I'm going to do so, but then I will go to bed way too late and tomorrow I will be dreaming a lot during daytime...I'm off, nice to meet you!

Debra, Enjoy your trip. I learned alot about you form this post. We are the same age! You have excellent taste...but I figured that one out before. Susan

Donna Layton said...

Hi Debra!
This was fun. I wish I'd get around to doing this google search thing, but I'll never do it. I swear if I could get my hands on those 2 bunnies in the second bunny photo, I'd kiss them on the lips over and over! The enormous bunny is hilarious.
Have fun with your daughter and the kiddos. Be safe.
