THIS AND THAT


Had a chance to visit a thrift store and found a set of six little plastic plates for snacks.


Jill gave me this cute little green bird as she knows I love birds.
                                     


While I was shopping at Grocery Outlet this little wooden Spring Bird hopped in my cart, and wanted a home on the kitchen sink by the hand soap.  How could I say no?



A new colorful set of knives with covers was a wonderful surprise from Don's cousin at our night with them.  

Each of these are memories from a wonderful trip.  I didn't take a picture, but a large container of homemade spaghetti sauce is in the freezer from my cousins.  You gotta love cousins.

I'm about to get caught up, and will begin responding to your comments.  Thanks always for stopping by.

    1. I decided I liked the picture after I downloaded it. Don had yelled at me, I turned around and the sun was in my eyes...I didn't think it would turn out. I'm a skirt gal 24/7.

    1. Hi Mildred. Most would think that was not appropriate dress for the beach but I live in skirts. It was not a planned picture. Don called my name, and the sun was in my eyes. But after I downloaded it I liked it...cause that was a highlight of the trip.
