{Fall Please Come To Florida}

Well I am LATE in making a post this week!  Marty and I took three days off to do a little bow hunting in those old Georgia Pines. Camo, lipstick and earrings is a must for this huntress! LOL! A girl still gotta look like a girl...even when hunting right?  We had a good time. I actually had a nice breeze in my tree stand. Though no harvest was bagged we just enjoyed being away. Some of the sweetest times for me with the Lord is while I am sitting in a tree stand.  Had the two youngest grandgirls for a couple of days and of course we had a tea party! And sprinkles...we have sprinkles on EVERYTHING !  I've really enjoyed making coffees, shakes and loaded teas. Dang, I am getting pretty good at this! LOL! Everything I have made has been healthy, low in calories. Well, maybe I did add a whip or two of whipped cream and chocolate syrup!  Y'all, I won all these books! I was so surprised to get an email from my friend Cheryl at  http://www.homespundevotions.com/ telling me I had won!

{A Few of my Favorite Things}

 


I hope that you all have had a wonderful weekend.  The weekends just seem to go by too quickly don't they? I wanted to share a few of my favorite things today that sits on my corner hutch in my kitchen.


Most of all my blue and white dishes belonged to my grandmother and motherinlove so they hold special memories for me to say the least. I have a few that I have picked up here or there or that was gifted to me.


Since I enjoy displaying my favorite blue and white dishes, most often I add seasonal or holiday decor to them and I also enjoy the little pops of color added to the blue and white. 




Since the bottom of my corner shelf has a cabinet I was able to store a few of my dishes there. But, I have more lovely blue and white dishes stored in my She-Shed. I guess I need to have a blue and white party one day.  

 

Though I have lots of dishes I do have some favorite's, how about you? Do you have favorite dishes?  



Recently it was "National Daughter's Day". So I jumped on the band wagon to acknowledge our three daughter's. To be honest, it doesn't take a National Daughter's Day for me to acknowledge my girls. We are so very proud of the women they are today. They are wonderful wives and mothers and they love our Lord and raise their children to love Him too so what more could we desire? Of course I heard the next National Day was Son's Day. And I guess there will be an Aunt day and an Uncle Day. Mercy...to be totally honest, I am beginning to wonder if EVERYDAY isn't celebrated for something...And If I am going to Celebrate daily then I want it to be....

Each day is surely a gift to be used. 


I hope that you have a very wonderful week and remember.....

  2. So nice that you have your special dishes from your moms. I have dishes and china but I tend to use the plain white Corelle that were my moms. You have beautiful daughters! I like your last picture post.

  3. They are all gorgeous...just like you! And it really is something to celebrate. I have 4 sons that I love dearly....but I know a daughter would have been special too. Enjoy your day!

  4. Your dishes are even more special because they belonged to your grandmother and your mother in love. Your cabinet looks so pretty with your Fall touches. Your family is so beautiful, Cindy, and you are blessed!

  5. I'm admiring your lovely collection of blue and white transferwares!

    When I was in elementary school, I learned that blue and orange were complementary colours.

    1. Thank you Margie. I love the blue and white dishes. Brings back lots of memories of my granny for sure. My Papa always wanted to eat out of "REAL" dishes as he called them with a "REAL" fork and of course a "GLASS" drinking cup. Granny always used those blue and white plates.

  6. Cindy, your blue and white collection is beautiful and holds precious memories of those you love. Your daughters are beautiful just like their mama. Wishing you a lovely week sweet lady!

  7. I'm pretty sure you are right...seems like there is something or another to celebrate each and every day. Of course, waking up every morning is the best reason to celebrate:)
    I just love your corner shelves. One of my friends would really love your blue & white dishes...she's a collector. I like to change up our dinner plates so have several different ones. Would you believe some of my favorites came from the Dollar Tree!!! They are just this pretty lime green and I bought coral placemats (also at $Tree) to use with them. The color combination looks great...and at just a buck apiece!!! I also have a set of solid red dishes by PIONEER WOMAN...love, love red!!! I still have all the dinnerware I got for wedding gifts 50 years ago!!!! I'm sure they are discontinued by now. It's fun to change up and not use the same dishes over and over. I know you are proud of that great looking family!

    1. Oh I love the Dollar Tree and have found some cute dishes there too along with goblets. I have a set of the Pioneer Woman dishes too that my girls gave me one year. I probably have more dishes than one person should really own! Oh my!

    1. Thank you GM. I am loving my Fall in my kitchen and dining room. Sad to say that is about as far as I have gotten with Fall decor. For some reason I just tend to get slower and slower about doing things these days. LOL!

  9. Good morning, Cindy, I just pinned your beautiful quote. So good to remember.
    I love your beautiful blue and white canisters. I am a blue and white fan for sure.
    I always love your family pics. You are indeed blessed by your family and they are definitely blessed by you. Have a fabulous week.
    I would appreciate your prayers for us as we travel this week. Thank you, Cindy.

    1. Thanks Bonnie. Those canisters always was my eye catcher. My motherinlove had some pretty things that I surely loved. When she passed one of my sweet SIL gave me those pretty canisters. Made me smile so big. Will pray for your travels dear Bonnie. Go and have fun lady.

  14. I love blue and white dishes, as you know, I have some of the same. I also have that same butter dish. It was my grandmother's. It is rather old and stained from years of butter grease seeping into the little fine cracks that come with age, so it probably isn't that great to use, but I love having it because of whose it was. Yes, you should have a blue and white party! I love the pops of fall color with the dishes too. And you are greatly blessed to have such three lovely daughters! What a gift from the Lord. I have three wonderful sons..two here on earth and one waiting in heaven. They are all unique and special in their own way, and were/are a delight to us as well. I know that our Matthew is now a delight to God in heaven. He must have had a special purpose for calling him home so soon. Some day we will understand it all. Enjoy this gorgeous fall day we are having! So happy for a crisp morning and sunshine. Makes me want to be outside all day.
    Take care dear friend.

    1. I've seen pictures of your lovely blue and white dishes and I think it would be safe to say that we both love them. What a day it will be when you reunite with your Matthew Pam. I know you enjoy your wonderful sons. Loving the weather this morning. Came real close to putting my boots on. LOL!

  16. I have always loved these blue dishes and wish that I had had the color scheme in our house to use them. But, just wouldn't work so I have others that I do love. I am quite a collector of dishes. Always love stopping by!

  17. DISHES? Do I have dishes!! Too many, and they are all my favorite!! I dread the day that I have to downsize and get rid of some dishes. Your blue dishware looks great with orange pumpkins....so festive for fall! Have a Happy Day!

  22. Years and years ago I had a white corner hutch that looked a lot like yours..... I've missed it but to be honest, I haven't a good place for it in this house. You have a wonderful sense of style in your home decor and in your photography!

    Blessings to you!

Hiding the Ugly Hot Water Heater

 I shared that I wanted to hide my ugly hot water heater in my laundry room with you a few weeks ago. It just stuck out like a sore thumb. But after all it is a hot water heater right? So my man took a piece of wood (not real wood) but it worked and built a frame for me. So now to see if it would fit and it did. I painted it white and did not like the texture it had even after two coats of white. (rule of thumb...you get what you pay for and the wood was cheap) But I wasn't going to let it whip me!  Found some contact paper at Walmart in the gray and white. Covered the front with the contact paper and loved the look. The top was covered with a piece of painted wood as well and worked perfect to place this on top... And this.... Added a clothes basket in the corner and here was the top.... Yep, no longer an eye sore to me! Went perfect with my gray walls and gray and white floor. Remember the wood tray I bought at a yard

{Pinterest Favs and My Simple Life}

  Isn't this Coleus just beautiful? I have about 4 of these pretties that I started out in just one pot and the next thing I knew I was replanting in different pots. We had a girls day out this past Friday and I enjoyed our outing so much. Cracker Barrel was first on the list and then shopping. Nothing like a girls day with your girls. Sure does refresh the soul doesn't it? I have had this little sign for a few years now and found it at Tractor Supply . I just love it but let me tell y'all something...you can find all kinds of goodies at Tractor Supply. I went in recently to look for some seeds and well, let's just say I came out with more than I went in for!  Now for Pinterest Favs and these Yummy Chewy Brown Sugar Cookies are first on the list!   This recipe is tried and true.  YOU CAN'T EAT JUST ONE ! These things will melt in your mouth. The recipe made a large batch so needless to say family and friends were gifted cookies! Next time I make these I think I wi
