Smiling First Piglet

I live this picture. I was never in the 4H Club but this makes me wish I had raised some farm animals. The boy loves the pig, raised him well, and he won first prize. So sweet. Have a great Saturday night . . . see you in the morning.

Tree Bed With Bird's Nest

I like it but I would have to have a headboard.
Tree Bed ~ $15,000 from Shawn Lovell Metalworks

I woke up this morning to a dense fog so I'm pretending Webster and I are in England. We had a delightful walk in the mist while the coffee was brewing. I am very tempted to take my first cup and jump back in my rumpled bed and watch a recorded TV show. My DVR is quickly filling up because of all the new fall programs. Some I don't like already but I have to watch the pilot to find out. See you later.

Less Is More | Sophisticated Simplicity

LESS IS MORE! This is a wonderful quote and image, isn't it? I grew up sewing on an old Singer sewing machine just like this one. Another photo I liked and saved with no image source for credit.

The Book Room | Literally

Books on the celing, books on the floor, books on the walls. This must be the book room. I'm sorry I did not bookmark the source of this wonderful photo that I just found on my computer.

Moonlight Mowing

I had a very productive day working outside almost the whole day long. It's a little after 7:30 PM and I just finished my mowing about 15 minutes ago. It looks so nice. I think it might rain because I can hear thunder rumbling and the wind is starting up. The leaves will blow away since the grass is nice and short. So happy . . . and tired. I'm glad I put everything away instead of leaving my cart and tools out in the open the way I've been doing all week. I am a master weed puller and it shows. I've been spending about 3 hours per day for ever so long pulling them up by hand. I hate crabgrass.

On the Other Side of the Wall

Isn't this a lovely scene? What a perfect place to be. The beautiful home on the other side of the wall is perfectly framed by this circular opening. In England no doubt.

Halloween Witch on Barn

I wonder when these people will hang up their Halloween witch? I have to drive by once the leaves start to turn and check. It's pretty wonderful, isn't it? I took this photo last year.

Carrot Cake + Whoopie Pie = Heavenly Cookies

A carrot oatmeal cookie cake whoopie pie with maple cream cheese frosting. Heavenly. These are definitely on my 'To Bake' list. Go to Peace of Cake and read the college girl's recipe. Why didn't I have someone like this in my dorm when back in my college days? She was trying to replicate Little Debbie Oatmeal Pies which were my favorite lunch box treat when I was a kid. There is a mention of adding raisins in the directions but none are called for in the ingredients and I don't see any in the photo. So forget the raisins.

1934 DeSoto Airflow Automobile

Cars are not my thing. I only ask that they start when I turn the key and get me where I'm going. I do however like this 1934 DeSoto for some reason. I like the shape and everything about it. Found on Pixdaus. It would look very cool parked in front of my cottage.
