Sterling Silver Bracelet

A few years back we were out traveling and came across a beautiful sterling silver bracelet. There are some great pieces out there. I am one that can't seem to get enough of this type of thing. It always brings a smile to have something new. Jewelry is such an awesome accessory for any outfit. It can make such a statement.

The other day we went to a pizza place that we had never been to before. They specialize in the New York style pizza. We ordered two large pizzas which were 18" each. Wow, they were huge. Of course there was not a chance that we were going to finish them. We had six adults and four kids at lunch and only finished one full pizza plus two slices of the second one. It was good pizza and it made for great left overs. I don't know if I have ever seen such big pizza slices. They covered the entire plate. Good pizza and a good price.

Boutonnieres and Corsages

Our youngest son recently got married. They venue was up near Estes Park. It was so beautiful! She had natural wild flowers for boutonnieres and corsages. The bridesmaids made their own bouquets with long-stemmed wild flowers! Everything went together so well. It was gorgeous.

Barrel Bolt

I remember growing up on the farm my dad had many projects. It seemed we would be working all day on Saturdays. There were many tools and equipment that at the time I was unaware of what they were. My mom would run to town for barrel bolt, latches and other things we might be in need of. She did a lot of running.

Garage Sales

Over the years I have been to many garage sales. When the kids were younger I am sure I went to even more than today. Many great deals were found at those sales. We all know you need to watch what you are buying but there are so many wonderful items at these sales. I remember buying sacks of clothes for just a few dollars. Toys, sports items, clothes and household items were always on my list. I know that many clothing items had never even been worn before. If you have never been to a garage sale, I would encourage you to try one out.

Donate Car

My son and his family have huge hearts! They want to help children who are in need. Recently they have taken in a couple of children and love them so. Family and friends have been such a great support system. They find themselves receiving as others donate car, clothes and other items. What wonderful blessings others have been.
