The Circus

While I was dreaming through looking at photography the other day I came across these beautiful photos which reminded me of the circus. They were taken by photographer Solve Sundsbo. He is amazing! I used to take my kids to see the circus about every other year when they were little and they've been advertising the show on the radio all week and even though I am not going I would love to. I think we all think the circus is for kids but I always found it to be totally awesome. The Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus always comes through our town about this time each year. It always amazed me how so much was going on at the same time and all the talent abounding everywhere. Me and a couple of friends of mine took a bunch of kids many years ago and had the luck of sitting in the 3rd row. I was as thrilled as the kids! After some Bulgarian or Bolivian (I have no idea) acrobats left the ring one of them came over to the edge and was saying something to me. I couldn't under…

These were the type cars I learned to drive in so this video brought back some nice memories of shifting gears and grinding clutches! Love it! Enjoy ♥




Ever feel like fussing over a dandelion?

My hubby and I have been squabbling a bit but we tend to to do that sometimes. I normally don't share the drama of my life but I'd say lately if we were in a sitcom it would be very popular. We do love each other but we can certainly get on each other nerves too as all couples at sometimes do. When stress levels hit a high it seems I develop a low tolerance to bullshit which I say he's full of. He says I get mean but I must disagree, me mean...no way! I've just got too much emotional stuff going on right now and to top off my week I came in to work today and a coke I had forgotten in the freezer had exploded.  All my hubby seems to be worried about is getting the grass mowed on a sunny day before all the dandelions are bloomed out and flying all over the yard. I realize that is important too and that I am probably just wanting to fight because I'm stressed but the way I am looking at dandelions right now is that they just come right back so why bother. I've pr…

I heard this song on Sirius radio over the weekend and remembered how much I used to dig this band. Diggin' their groovy outfits too! lol





I have small space decorating on my mind

I've been doing a bit of online browsing about turning an extra room into a walk-in closet and I have pleasantly came upon some beautiful ideas about small spaces. I went from a medium large house to a small house and I still have not gotten used to it. But I know I am definitely not utilizing what little space I have. It's my quest this summer to do one room at a time. If I'm lucky I'll at least get the one room changed into a walk-in closet, hopefully. Check out the ideas I found. I need some color in my house and I thought these photos were beautiful ♥

Easter weekend

I had a lovely long holiday weekend! Cooked, cleaned, went for a long walk up and down the creek, did a bit of shopping, activated my new iphone and hid Easter eggs but mostly ate jelly beans. I cannot stay out of them. Doesn't matter what color. I grab a handful every time I walk by. Yum!

I got out of my jeans and put on a pretty dress too!


♥ Dress:  Tulle ♥ Hosiery: Gray Mist from Leggs ♥ My Mauve Shoes
In an attempt to add a bit of color to my wardrobe I bought this dress used from ebay and although it is a beautiful dress I just don't think it is me. It's a bit too youthful or frilly or something for me. Maybe it's just out of my comfort zone.  I couldn't quite figure it out. It is from the Tulle clothing line which I adore. I purchased a Tulle brand dress from Modcloth for my birthday this past year and I love it! You can see it here. Guess it's more my style, if I had one! lol I also have a summer dress which I can't wait to wear once more. Love the…

Oh, my bleeding heart

So pretty and delicate they don't look real. I can't help but stop and look at them closely almost everytime I walk by. They are beautiful!

Winter to Spring

Even though spring is such a glorious time of year I am cold natured so it takes me a bit longer to pull out the short sleeves and sandals. Due to space in my home I put away summer stuff and so it's also a job to change seasons so the mood has to strike, which it hasn't! lol With the breezes blowing a chill in the air my warmer weather wardrobe will have to stay where it is, under the bed!

ModCloth - Canvassing Backpack As a thank you gift to my aunt for everything she did for me on my trip to Florida in January (which you can read about here, here and here) I ordered her this backpack from Modcloth. She is heading to Holland, Ireland, England and all the lands over in that general area on a trip this month sometime. While in Florida she shopped for a new purse to take with …

Boys are mean, they made me an April Fool!

At Christmastime my hubby took me to Best Buy and bought me an HP laptop as my gift. Of course, I was thrilled. At that same time we changed from internet satellite to wireless through Verizon and although thrilled with my new found goodies I was not really looking forward to setting up and learning these new gadgets. My hubby gets online to browse a bit when there is some project or purchase upcoming but he is no help in the technology department. I took the easy route (as I always do when something is over my head) and let the Geek Squad do all the initial work. The rest was up to me. The past couple months I have been working to make the laptop my own, saving all my favorite pages, getting the new Photoshop software, joining pinterest, etc. You get the picture....lots of work! I spend all day working on a computer so I don't really have much time at home so I at least felt like it was alot of work :o) We also have an old desk computer and a netbook but the laptop is the first …
