Goodbye





Dear Blogging Friends,  After much consideration, I have decided to close my blog.  I feel I am not
posting enough to merit you following me. 

To all who considered my blog worthy of your "following", I am deeply appreciative.  I will continue to enjoy your posts.

It has been a wonderful experience, and to those who press on, I admire you deeply, because I know that even though fun and rewarding, blogging can also be challenging and demanding.

Thank you again.  Donna

P.S.  Can I still change my mind if I change my mind later on?  :) :) :)

A Wonderful Hidden Treasure



Today I wanted to share with you something I treasure very much.
When we were moving Mom's stuff, we found  her beautiful Brides Book.  Somehow it had gotten  stuffed behind one of the drawers and had been there all those years.  I had never seen it before, so you can imagine what a wonderful surprise it was for me.

 This is one of the cards I found inside.

 as well as the invitations to her showers.  She got married in 1944.

 I can see everything she got for her showers.  Note:  She got .50 cents from "Aunt Vada" hehe I guess that was a lot back then?

 I can read all the "Advice for the Bride"
I love this book so much.

 
 I have always loved the 40's style.  Isn't this 40's bride pretty?

 Here is my mom.
People have always told me how much I look like her.  

 Mom and Dad on their wedding day.  Her dress was blue.  I remember playing "dress up" with it.
(I think I might have posted this pic before.  Sorry if I have)

 Here is my new "old" dresser.  I had wanted one for so long and found this one for a great price.  I can sit down and put on my make up, plus it has a full length mirror.

Finally, I found this little picture at the Dollar Tree.  

I'm joining the fun at Beverly's Pink Saturday.  Thanks, Beverly.

Snowman Table

Isn't it fun to be able to look into everybody's homes at Christmas!
I found these cute snowman heads, and they were my inspiration for a snowman table this year.



Terrible Picture Quality - Sorry


I used my plates from last year for my hutch. Glasses came from Dollar Tree. 

I found this bag called "Fill A Bowl"  so that's what I did. So Easy!

The plates came from Walmart this year.....just what I needed for the table.
Found these cute snowmen figures, so I just used them on my napkin rings (should have taken the string off)


These guys were a cute find yesterday.

OK, so here's my chalkboard.  Does it look familiar?  Shh!
I sorta used this picture from a catalog.  (I hope that's OK)



I am way behind most of you bloggers, but I have 
enjoyed seeing your beautiful homes.

THANKS FOR STOPPING BY TODAY
I'm joining Tablescape Thursday over at Susan's today. Thanks, Susan!

New 'Old" Light Fixture in DR


Hello!  For years I have loved and wanted a tin punch light fixture in my dining room, but they are pretty expensive.



My old light was OK, but not my style at all. 




Well, I got really lucky and found this one at an antique store in Indiana for less than $100!


It's exactly like I wanted.  My son installed it for me for free :)




So here's my BEFORE


And here's the AFTER!

Thanks for stopping by today, and I'm joining "Met Monday" over at Susan's today.  Thanks, Susan
