Aqua and Blue and a Polish Lady Too~ Let’s Dish


Hello, Ladies, hope you have had a good week!

I am still trying to get use to my new computer, it is hard to teach an old dog new tricks, but I will persevere. :)

Would you be so kind to take my Blog Crawl button and put it on your sidebar?  Thanks so much!


I got these plates in the clearance at Christmas Tree Shop.  Johnson Bros. Farmhouse Kitchen Blue Fern.


Navy with aqua, so that is what I went with tonight.


A pale aqua tablecloth that was in the clearance of BBB is the start.  It is made from recycled plastic soda bottles, who knew!  Very soft and spill resistant.

Navy blue placemats serve as the charger, again, CTS.

My Pier One Birdies sit on a plate.


Flatware is from HG, and the square navy  bakers for our soup are from CTS.  I think they were $1.99.


The aqua rim bubble glass, ( it really is aqua irl, just like the water glass) and aqua water glass are both from a .99 store.

The little candle holders are from Walmart, .25, years ago.


Navy blue cotton napkins from CTS, in clearance, 6 for $1.24.


My newly gifted Polish Cheese Lady serves as the centerpiece, sitting on a navy bowl flipped over. Isn’t she cute?  Christine has a whole bevy of them!


Lift her up and put some cheese in her!

My neighbor gave it to me for posting her Polish Pottery.


I know, very simple.  I am trying to get back in the groove!


Now it is your turn!

Time to review the details…

I sure hope you will be there, wearing green!table 3456

If you need some ideas you can go back to Crawl 1 through 4 and check it out.

No excuses, we can all use a little green these days!  Last year we had over 100 crawlers, so be sure to join in the fun!

Thanks for visiting!  I was able to get Live Writer working with some free Tech support.  It is different than my older version, so it takes a bit of playing around to get it right, but I am very thankful .

QVC offered 4 years of free support from TREND with the purchase and the support is  right here in the USA!

DELL wanted to charge me almost $300 to do it. 

They said I would need a software contract to fix the problem on my 5 day old computer.  TREND MICRO did it in 10 minutes.

If you haven’t tried Live Writer, download it for free and give it a shot.  You will love it, I think!

Thanks for visiting!

Let's Dish~A Long Way till Spring

 I still can't get Live Writer loaded on this new computer, so I am forced to use the antiquated blogger to post.  :(

You can click on the pictures to enlarge.

I took these the other day at the beach here,  Pretty...but really cold!
Spring seems a long way off.

Please remember the 5th Annual Blog Crawl on March 13th.  Anything green, or Irish, is the theme.  Hope you will join in!

Put on your green thinking caps!

Big Paddy will be here to lead us through Blogland, to share the showing of the green!

My thanks again to all those who said prayers for my sister's family on the loss of 8 year old Tommy.

I am not ready to party yet, but I want to open it up for you.

With Sincere Thanks...

I sincerely want to thank you for all your kind words and prayers for my niece and sister on the loss of 8 year old Thomas.

I read each one of them, and someday, when the time is right, I  will show them to my niece and sister.  

I told my sister how many people were praying, and your prayers meant so much to us.

I was so touched by your kind words, and expressions of sympathy and friendship.

I leave you with this thought.
The recessional for Tommy's funeral was "This Little Light of Mine."
Each time you light a candle, say a prayer for those who are suffering the loss of loved ones... the loss of a child is such a test of faith.

Again, my heartfelt thanks, you are the best!

The link for Let's Dish will be open  at 7 PM if all goes well.

My new computer was installed and I am having a terrible time.  I was on the phone for 2 hours with DELL as it wasn't loading.

Don't even get me started on where all my pictures are!

I have been unable to load Live Writer, I keep getting a message ...unable to connect to a remote server.  I googled it and did what they said, but no luck.
If you use Live Writer, you can never go back to Blogger to blog, the difference is astounding.

So if anyone has any hints for me regarding Live Writer, please let me know.

Sad News

It has been a very sad week for my family.

My sister's 8 year old grandson passed away.

I hope you will excuse me for not visiting, but my mind has not been on blogging.

I hope to be back next week, we will see.  We all need time to grieve.

We know Thomas is with the Lord , but if you would say a prayer for his family I would appreciate it.

My sister's son was killed when he was 18, and now she must go through this again with her grandson.  She knows the pain her dear daughter will suffer.

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

I am opening the link, but I know I won't be able to visit.

Valentine Wreath Makeover~

I am so happy to have power after yesterday's blizzard!

Shall we have lunch outdoors?  :)  It would be SNOW delightful, and unlimited snow cones for all!  :)

Jan 2013 089

We got about 20 inches or so, and the plows have piled over 3 ft at the end of the driveway.

Jan 2013 093

For all you Southern gals talking about Spring, you can see how we are nowhere near seeing any signs of it!

Jan 2013 090

Enough about snow, there are so many of you who have it, and I don't want to bore you!

I made this simple  wreath a few years ago, and it was looking tired.

table 547

I was going to pitch the ribbon and redo the wreath somehow.  After I removed all the ribbon, I decided to give it a rebirth!

Jan 2013 108

Instead of throwing it out, I cut the wired ribbon into pieces, and pulled the wire on one end.  You can form flowers that way.

I glued them on the heart shaped wreath along with the baby's breath.

Jan 2013 110
Not bad for a recycled wreath!  Another year of life for it.

Jan 2013 111Cost...nada!

Have you made things with pulled wire ribbon?  Easy and fun!

Don't forget Laurie's Valentine Party on the 11th!  Bargain Hunting with Laurie.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
