I did have to go out this afternoon to run to the post office here in town quick, and on the way .. look..truck full of sweet corn and produce on the side of the road. Looks pretty yummy huh?
I think Wes is stopping home tonight , so I already had a roast in the crock pot. This will be a yummy addition. I've been meaning to show you the vintage salt and pepper shaker I found last week. ( looks perfect with the corn and tomatoes huh? ) lol I've got this read and yellow thing going in my kitchen all the sudden.
Speeking of Red and yellow.. and my kitchen. The layout I did a while back on the "I inspire me" blog of my Grandma and her extention club girls, it got picked up for the Dec. issue of Scrapbook Trends. Yay! I'm so happy, because I love that photo! ( and because I think it would make my Gram smile).lol
Speeking of things making people smile! I can not begin to tell you how much this made my day yesterday when it arrived. Out of the blue I get this box of vintage goodies from a blog reader.
I will tell you something .. if you are an artist at heart... there is nothing better than someone saying you've inspired them. If anything I ever do , in any way inspired someone to create something.. and enjoy the process of creating it... ...THAT is the ulitimate complement.
Thanks Linda from TN .. for making my day!
One other fun thing ... My layout of Nathaniel and Brent is out in the Aug issue of Scrapbook Trends.
I have gotten the biggest Kick out of reading the Childhood Memories everyone has been posting. Thanks so much for sharing them!
******OKAY... I am now addressing the issue of the blog MUSIC> lol I took the music off my blog yesterday, mostly because I had put links to other things in that post that play music.. and it's annoying when two things are playing at once....but I have been giving alot of thought to whether I should keep the music or not. Simply because I've heard comments in alot of forums saying lots of people would rather not have music playing when they visit a blog. Really, who am I to think everyone has to like my music? lol It's just that I love music so much.. I just want to share. lol
I guess there is a mute button if you would rather not listen, or the volume can be turned of on your speakers but...
I've heard some people say they have more than one window open on their computer at one time, and blog music is distracting.
Anyway... since I took the music off Ive already gotten emails saying "where's the music?" I'm sure some like music on , and others , not so much.
Maybe I'll set it up , so that you push play and listen if only if you want to?
I'd love to know how you guys feel about ... the music/no music thing.
You can either post here, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Tomorrow my mom is having another procedure on her eye, for her macular degeneration. She will be coming her to stay for a few days, so we'll get to enjoy her company. She has to stay inside and out of sun totally for 5 days.. so manybe being her will be a bit less boring for her, than just staying at home alone. (I dont know.. we're certainly not to exciting around here) lol
Aly and Molly look so forward to the extra attention when Grandma is here. She can say "no". They nudge..she pets! lol
Hope you all have a great rest of the day!
