"White is not a mere absence of color, it is a shining and affirmative thing: as fierce as red, as definite as black." ~ G.K. Chesterton

This white castle looks like it was taken right from a fairy tale.

iron gate

Love anything chippy and white!


OHHHH how I wish I could knit! I want to curl up in this and read a good book!

I want to walk through and see whats on the other side.
A beautiful garden maybe?

Love the added initials.

rustic beauty!

Until later.........

Enjoying the Simple things in Life

Today I am sitting back, catching my breath, and enjoying some of the simple things in life.

My grandchildren, their innocence and free spirit.

My son Madison and his sense of humor. He can always put a smile on my face!

Young love and the smile it puts on my son Kelson's face.

The color orange for fall

A pumpkin latte from Starbucks.

A parade on a drizzly fall day.

With the red hat lady's that always make me smile.

Our freedom and all those who fight for it.

Hope you enjoy some of the simple things in life today!

Feeling a Little Blue

I have been feeling a little blue this week. My youngest son left for his basic training in the military and then he will be off for his AIT's. For those who don't know, my husband and I have a large combined family. We have 9 children and we have 10 grandchildren with the 11th due in April.

I am now entering the empty nest syndrome. I always thought that I couldn't wait for the day, but now I am asking myself "Where has all of the time gone?" I guess I am feeling a little empty, feeling blue.....

Here are a few of my favorite blue photos from pinterest.

So just where does one find a blue pumpkin? Interesting...

I LOVE these blue tins!

Seltzer Bottles
(not my collection, but I would love to have it!)

I love the post box! I am sure Kelson doesn't have one! None the less when then stand there and holler out his name, I am sure he is glad to get letters just the same:)

I remember when he started driving. I think he was 3! No kidding! On our acreage  my husband had a shop with lots of tractors, riding lawn mowers, go carts etc. He started with the smallest and worked his way up to driving my husbands suburban all over the acreage.

Awwwhhhhh. I remember when his feet were small.

Good luck Kelson! Stay safe and remember we all love and miss you!
