Friday Randoms



The time is nigh....a bit of shopping for me this weekend and all will be complete.  


Ever thought about living in Vermont?  I know....the snow!  Here is a fantastic, historic home located on a ......wait for it......a Christmas tree farm.  Almost too perfect.  


Trying to select a gift for a home cook, who might have it all?  Well, fret no more and look right here.  

Selfies of the Week on CNN, features one of my favorites, Rory McIlroy.  Even in protective eyewear he is handsome.  


Leaving you with this song for the weekend.  Heard it yesterday for the first time in a long time.  


Linking up with Tanya today.  
Pay her a visit!

  4. Love your intimate, homey shot of that single ornament. That says it all.
    Good cooking gift suggestions (thanks), but I tried viewing the Christmas tree
    farm pics, but all I could get was ads (boo). Oh well. I'm sure my mouth
    would water. Thanks for the tunes (it had me dancin'). I always love your posts.
    Especially how they put me in Christmas spirit.
    Ciao.

  17. Well I was in love with the house until I saw the price...WHOA! But so pretty, and if I were rich, I would love to live there. My 4 greats grandfather was born in Vermont and I have always wanted to go there to research his family.

  20. Interesting seeing the Himalayan salt mortar! I just saw a Himalayan salt slab for food prep at Trader Joe's our SIL wanted to buy. I had never heard of such before. Not Vermont...just couldn't do it! :-)

  23. Your randoms are always so interesting. That lovely Vermont house sure looks good, though I can only be there in the summer, OK? And, is there any hope that this selfie madness will ever end?

  24. Beautiful photo! That Christmas tree farm looks like a dream. We have one right down the road from us. I'm sure their life is much more difficult than it seems on a perfectly cold and snowy pre- Christmas Day. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
