Summer Tomatoes

I don't know about ya'll, but I am so looking forward to Fall!! This 100 degree weather is about to get the best of me! In the meantime, are ya'll over-run with "these"!! We have tomatoes everywhere! We usually only have 3 plants, but this year, we have 5. The funny thing is Hubby is the only one that eats them...and let me tell ya, he eats them...every night for supper. Whether it is a tomato sandwich smothered in mayo, salt and pepper, or he'll just slice one and eat it with whatever else he's eating. So now, we're feeding the neighbors, family, co-workers, church people and anybody else to wants them. Happy Friday!!!

Tiny Bunny

I came home the other day and found this tiny bunny sitting on the sidewalk. It didn't even move...just sat there. Hubby went and got the camera and took its picture. I think it was pretending that it was a statue!! It's living in the bushes in front of our house and comes out to play everyday. I still haven't seen the Mama, but I'm sure she's in there somewhere. It's sooo cute!

New Hairband

Well, I went and did it!!! I bought me a hairband, headband, thingy with a big flower on it. I haven't wore a hairband since my 2nd grade dance recital!!!...and trust me...that was a longggggggg time ago! But, when I was at the beach several weeks ago, I saw it on a table on the way out of the mall. I tried it on, put it back down, tried it on again and put it back down, and tried it on again. Then my sister came around the corner and saw it on me and busted out laughing, so I put it back down again!!! Then when we got to the car, I said I really liked that hairband. She said well go get it. So I did...even if she did laugh at me!! I love it! There's so much freedom, feeling like a kid again, even if it's just by wearing a hairband. Today, I'm joining up with Chatting at the Sky for Tuesday's Unwrapped, because this small thing, just makes me happy!

Auction Deal

My mama's best friend moved to Florida this weekend and had an auction at her house to sell the remaining items. We went over there the night before and the only thing that I saw that I wanted was an old white chair that was sitting on the front porch. I couldn't go to the auction on Saturday, but sent Hubby and my son. I told him to bid on the chair. He called and said are you sure you want this's falling apart! I told him it wasn't to sit in, it was for looks! Well, when the time came to bid on the chair, they put everything that was on the front porch together. He got all of this for $15.00!! The table, "my" chair, two rocking chairs and they made him take the frog since it was on the front porch...LOL!!! I was so excited!!! I put the chairs on my front porch and the table out at the pool. But I brought the chair inside....that's it in my header. I love it! For more fab finds, please visit Linda at Coastal Charm to see everyone else's deals. I'm also linking to Faded Charm for White Wednesday. Afterall, everything we bought is white!!!

Cloche Party

I've joined Marty over at A Stroll Thru Life for her Summer Cloche Party. I didn't even know what they were called, but I knew that I loved them. They were just "domes" to me!! Then when I started blogging I noticed everyone calling them cloches. I don't even know how to pronounce that...LOL!!!! I only have 2 and they are so fun to decorate for the seasons. The one with the starfish has my Grandpa's marbles, that he used to play with when he was young. They look like eggs but they aren't. These are so big, I don't know how they played marbles with them. Marty needs to host this every season. I get so many wonderful ideas from everyone else.

Outdoor Wednesday - 4th of July 2010

I'm participating with Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday. Bear with me, 'cause this is a lot of pictures! Don't you just love it when people (especially ones you don't know) share their vacation pictures with you???? LOL!!! We always go to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina every year for the 4th of July. This year, we also went to see my aunt, uncle and cousins at Carolina Beach, North Carolina. While we were there, we took a ferry ride from Ft. Fisher over to Southport. We showed the kids where the road at our house ends...some 300 miles later. It goes right into the water. They couldn't believe it!! The weather was beautiful and we enjoyed the ride so much!! I was at the front of the boat trying to play Titanic, but it kinda looks like Hubby is trying to push me off instead of hold onto me!!!! We also ate at our favorite mexican restaurant, Abuelo's while we were at Myrtle....and of course, for dessert we had Krispy Kreme. We had a wonderful trip and took a lot of pictures. Thanks for taking time to look at them. Enjoy your day!!

Tabletop Tuesday

I recently purchased this table at my favorite furniture store, Jerry's, and knew just where I wanted to put the hallway coming into my kitchen. The only problem is that it is kind of dark being in the hall and no outlet to plug in a lamp. How did I let that happen when we were building???? Anyway, I wanted to make it summery-beachy-look, so I put a mason jar of sand on it with one of those little electric tea-lites, so I do have some light...LOL! Then I put a picture of us at the beach last year with a shell that Hubby found there and a cloche with marbles and a star fish. Then the other day, I found this sign that says Barefeet Welcome. The picture didn't turn out that great due to the lighting, but you can at least get an idea of what I was going for.....Summer! Please visit Marty over at A Stroll Thru Life, for Tabletop Tuesday.
