Birds & Bushes

It is so nice to see some little bulbs pushing up from the cold earth. It was such a hard winter on plants and people and animals.
I was in Tuesday Morning and seen this sweet little cream pitcher and just had to get it. Reminded me of spring and a dear friend.


On one side is a little Bumble bee and other side a lady Bug which I will welcome both bugs in my yard this year LOL. Look at the little beak where the cream comes out


I just had to get me a flower pot of something blooming for inside the house. I noticed WestLakes ACE hardware is putting up their plant tent today. We are still to get some very cool nights ahead so I will be keeping my potted plants inside a few weeks longer more than likely, till after Mothers Day 

And these precious little things are coming up, I talk to my plants and I told them I was very happy to see them LOL
They will bloom out a pretty lavender color. Do you recognize what they will be?

I think I am still tied from my oregon trip. I plan on staying home all day Saturday and just resting and eating something real good LOL

Oregon Trip

I just got back from visiting family in Oregon and we took a rode trip on Sunday over to eastern Oregon. This is Mt Hood about 2 hours out of Portland looking back. In other words we went over the mountain.


We was on our way to Sisters Oregon , also went through Bend Oregon .

However the high light of the trip was driving down this canon road along this river where people go to raft and camp.
This is a stand out in the river where only a certain Indian tribe can stand to catch fish.

It's sacred Indian ground . I loved the picture below driving along the canon. We came from way on top to the bottom where the river was running 

The trout fishing is catch and release only . The name of the river is Deschutes River

This is what I had for supper last night, Lobster. After being in the northwest I always want seafood to eat . This is the first time I ever cooked one for myself at home. yummy

Wall Art

Good Morning

Before I have to leave or even get ready for work I wanted to do a new post.
I am in my home office checking email etc and thought I really need to get some picture of something to post. I post things as they come to me.
Anyway I always like my red office walls and what I have hanging around me.I did this wall a couple years ago, and yes I still like my red room trimmed in Gold.


I have always liked wall candelabras 
Especially ones with huge crystals, I have a couple that are fabulous with 5 inch crystals and they are just laying downstairs on a bookcase

I have several old ornate gold frames and wanted to use them somehow 

 I like my goldfish I got them on a trip to Savannah Georgia once, I purchased them at The Paris Market if you were ever in Savannah I bet you heard of this store on Broughton St downtown? they just have a small screw int them and you screw them into your wall, My sister put her silver ones in her bathroom on her door to hang her bathrobe

I have a pair of these cute little pug bookends which I put on a wall shelf . It's still dark out and my little camera doesn't have that great of a flash. My chandelier in my office doesn't have large light bulbs in it either.

I have thought about painting this room a different color however it fits what I like so no need to paint. I have gold mirrors hanging where you can't see them in these pictures, even one hanging on my door since no more wall space to hang it 

 I better get off to work

Coffee anyone? I have really cut down on drinking coffee. I was drinking a pot of coffee at home and then at work drinking coffee just about all day long ! No wonder I couldn't sleep even drinking decaff. So now when I have my special cup with a cookie or piece of cake,well it's wonderful LOL

 I have several coffee canisters that I love because they are blue & white. This old canister has lost its lid throughout it's life and hasn't had one in the 20 years I have owned it. This is one of the items I started collecting back in the late 70-80's which  was blue and white dishes and canisters. never seen blue cherries but isn't it pretty?

Also my sale at the convention center last Saturday went very good. I sold a lot and was very happy with the day. I took loads of $1-10 items and they sold like hotcakes. The ice and snow held off Saturday. It was pleasant unloading however when we closed the cold north winds had came in and it was freezing packing up . This year they provided helpers and I sure was appreciative of that . I took pictures with my iphone and downloaded them in pisca at home however something went wrong ,anyway I can't find them and my program only downloads once,anyway I can't figure it out. I need a 9 year old to help me LOL Kids today can do anything on electronics
I just threw this picture in of my blue & white calico dishes because this was my first love, In dishes that is and I still love them with all my heart

The weather will be in the 50's today I am sure on campus lots college kids will be wearing shorts and tee shirts they always rush wearing shorts I think.
