I Indulged...

I love this cheese also It comes in a three pack at Costco so good!!!

while Lynn was visiting we had wine every night and Phil and Lynn like a real deep full bodied red I'm a light weight so If your like me try this wine out I loved it.
I have to share though one night I had been working on getting dinner ready and visiting with Lynn when I went to put dinner in the oven a quiche in a 9-13 pan when I flipped it upside down in the hot oven it oozed out everywhere! I realized I can't cook,talk and drink wine at the same time!!! we had a good laugh and ate pancakes..

This is how far I got in the Kitchen

I do love my blue walls can you tell though?

Love This Cookbook...

the cookbook is from the 1930's and was originaly done in french and they have recently translated it to English
This cookbook was on Anthropologie for $49 and then Missed it at Costco for$17

all the recipes are 5-6 ingredients lovely illustrations but the best part is there is a lovely poster that is the jacket cover. It's vintage French I'm going to frame mine in the kitchen!!

A Trip I'd Like To Take....

My Grandpa and Grandma took a trip to Norway and Sweden in 1961.

This was a journal of their trip and all of their relatives signed it but I love the drawings the best.
How sweet is this little cabin. This is a drawing a relative drew for my grandpa of his homestead cabin in Norway.

this was a clipping from the newspaper of their visit I'm not sure if its Swedish or Norwegian.

I'm in Love with these Vintage Posters....

I would
love to fill

the house with

these great works of Art!

All good things must come to an End!!!

I had so many great cups of coffee and conversations with Lynn's visit who knew we had so much in common, I can't believe how stressed I'd been over this visit...

The shopping was my favorite, she's so much fun to dress and Phil got to learn things about his family. Facts he didn't know like he's part Norwegian and English.

Cadiz Mug

I treated myself to these Anthropologie mugs in different colors
and I think I'll dress up and drink great coffee with great conversation and have tons of fun with Phil's sister. Maybe not this dressy but you get the Idea!


Here's Phil and I

2 days and counting I had to laugh when I saw this loving couple!

Old Phones

How sweet is this one.

I love the old heavy black ones. At one time I had three of them working and hooked up. I used to love the sound of them ringing at once but when it comes to automated calls, push one for a operator forget it!

This is just Beautiful.

Look at this stores collection I'm drooling, I have a old black wall hanging one in the store I may have to keep it!

Broken Bed

I have this bed and at 4a.m.
We crashed to the floor. No bed ,4 days and counting till company.
I screamed because George sleeps under the bed but I had forgotten he had climbed in with us in the middle of the night. What I didn't know was Cory had a nightmare and was sleeping on the floor next to the bed. Boy was he startled.
