Goodbye my sweet Spot


We said our final goodbyes to our Spot this morning.

This is an old picture, this is how I will always remember him, young, strong and healthy.

He was a BIG part of our family for over 20 years and he will be in our hearts forever.

He was the sweetest creature and gave us so much love and happiness, he is so missed.

Hopefully I will be back soon with a happier posting.

Thank you for visiting, Mary

Snowed Under

It seems like it has been snowing here for a month.  Oh ya, that's because it has.  

I stepped out to my front steps to take a few pictures.  That's the farthest that I've been in weeks.

This is my front yard - Snow.

Snow, Snow and a path dug through the snow. 

And a picture of my car.

You say you don't see a car.

That's because it is under that huge pile of Snow.

We hired someone to help dig out my husbands car, mine will not be moving for a while.

And another picture,  of Snow

and a path through the Snow.

If you like snow, you're welcome to come take as much as you would like,

 I've had enough.

Many weather records have been broken in our area, most snow fall in a season (and we are not close to the end), most snow in a week, most snow on the ground (we beat the 'winter of 78') and then there is the cold, lowest daytime high temperature (I think it was 5 degrees), lowest low temp at -5 with a wind chill of -20, and probably a few more.  Brr.

I'm staying inside warm and dry.  

Thank you for visiting, Mary

Merry Christmas

I love Christmas lights, so we always enjoy taking a trip to La Salette Shrine , in Attleboro, MA, this time of the year.  We got bundled up in layers of warm clothes and took a trip last week.

I hope you enjoy seeing a few of my pictures, they really don't do it all justice, it really is quite magical

There are so many beautiful lights and decorations every where you look



And you may even believe that you have seen Santa taking in the lovely display

No,  It's not Santa, that's my hubby

And on our way home we happened upon a wonderful little neighborhood

Off of Route 140 in Norton, MA

So we stopped and took a few photos

We were really touched when we noticed that each house had a pink ribbon in their display.

I found a  Sun Chronicle article ,  if you would like to see more pictures and read the story about the display.

 I hope that your days are Merry and Bright

Thank you for visiting, Mary

Bye to MJ - Purple Give-Away

 MJ said Good Bye to us last week.

She dressed in a new purple outfit for the trip to her next host.

Jaynie and I are happy to see that she made it safely

and is now with  Gwen  in South Carolina

We will be looking in to see her next adventures.

Do you like Purple?

While MJ was here, she and Jaynie went through many boxes and found lots of purple items.

So many that I think that it's a good time for a give-away to share some.

I've put together 2 packages of little purple things - If you would like to participate:

1)  Be or become a follower of this blog
2)  Leave a comment on this posting.

1 chance will be given to any new followers
2 chances to any one who is already a follower 12/11/13
and everyone who posted a comment on one of the postings on MJ's visit with us 10/23 - 11/28 will be given an extra chance. 

2 names will be drawn next Thursday 12/19/13     -   Good Luck

Thank you for visiting, Mary

Happy Thanks Giving


MJ and Jaynie are spending a quiet evening reading

After a nice turkey dinner

No one felt like doing much

 Not even Daisy

MJ snuggled up under a warm blanket

We hope MJ enjoyed staying in the Lekman box, it is purple

And we added a few more touches of purple

We added a bathroom behind a screen/shower

The coffee table is a bangle bracelet from Fire Mountain Gems topped with a mirror

I painted the edge of the mirror with black nail polish

I hope every one had a wonderful day

Thank you for visiting, Mary

Better Late Than Never

At least that's what I think, I hope that you agree.  Here's MJ and Jaynie's Halloween Costumes



You scared me and made me drop my basket Grandma.

You're not my Grandma

What did you do with my Grandma?

The Big Bad Wolf turned tail and ran away.

And another new outfit for MJ.

It's two pieces - top and skirt

The top is reversible, black on the other side

We've enjoyed having MJ here with us very much, we're a little sad to say good bye to her but it's about time to send her to her next host.

The weather is nasty here today, wet and windy, high wind warnings and flood watch.  We have no plans to venture outside, we're staying inside warm and dry.

Now that I've found my way around Pinterest some, I'm quite hooked, there are so many people sharing so many things about so many different interests.  If your interested in seeing some of the things that I like, you can find my  Pinterest boards - here .   I  have several mini boards including; Where to find mini tutorials and where to find mini printies.

I hope that you are all have a wonderful Thanksgiving. If you are traveling I wish you good weather and a safe trip.

Thank you for visiting, Mary
