Friday Randoms



A seashell.....a face.....I don't know, you decide.  Whatever it is, I brought it home and it resides on a pile of beloved books.  


This man has Christmas spirit and some to spare.  


Have some time for travel on your hands?  Here are a few place to visit.  
Maybe one is close to you.  


Looking for a vintage Christmas tree?  
Here is a sweet aluminum version for your table.  


Leaving you with some Alison Krauss for the weekend.

Thankful Thursday



Thankful this Thursday for another Christmas with my parents.  As I move through life, it shows itself as the fleeting wonder that it is.  Moments become even more special than they ever were before.  

If your parents are still with you, then give them a call today.  If they are not, remember them at their best.  We all deserve that.


Take a moment and link up something that you are thankful for today.  Big, little, simple, or complicated, it doesn't matter.

Game On


Have you ever watched first Harry Potter movie?  Well, if you have you know that Harry lives in a closet underneath the staircase.  

One of those closets underneath the staircase exists in this old farmhouse.  It is where I store all of the Christmas decor.  I can tell you, in complete honesty, that it pains me each year to delve into the cave underneath the stairs.  




But hey.....someone has to do it and it is now complete.  All trees are up and the lights are hung with care, but not by the chimney.

A Small Town Classic



This barn sits beside our local ballpark and I have photographed it many a time.  As I passed it, just a couple of days ago, who did I think of, but Tom!  

According to the weather report, it might have a few snowflakes on its roof by the middle of the week.  Let's hope so. 

Linking up with The Barn Collective today.

Friday Randoms


A totally random shot at the beach on St. Simon's Island.  A portrait....perhaps?  


The season for the dutch oven is upon us.  I have a wonderful, red, Le Creuset version, (thanks dad), and shall be using it for all of these kitchen projects.  


I am a sucker for a classic barn and these photographs certainly fit the bill.  


Here is a sampling of requests mall Santas have received.  You will need a hanky for a couple of them.  


Leaving you with some Mick Jagger for the weekend.  
Rock on!

Thankful Thursday



Thankful this Thursday for excellent coworkers.  People who smile and mean it.  People who are always there when you need them, no matter if it is for classroom advice or life advice.  

I have a blessed situation and I try to appreciate it each day.  


This Thursday I would like to start the Thankful Thursday Link Up.  

How does this work?  

Share a post telling us what you are thankful for.

Much To Do

Southern gentlemen shootin' the breeze.  

Ever have one of those days when you put the bag of meal worms in the snack cabinet.  Yeah....bird food and people food don't mix well, but that is my state of mind.  

Much to do and little brain space left with which to operate.  


Did you know......

~ epsom salt makes better fake snow, than bona fide fake snow

~ some dogs like to chew an extra small hole in their new dog bed and pull out the stuffing

~ fake candles take too many batteries to operate

~ a young child who eats too many skittles will become quite unwell


I can't wait to see what will happen today.
