Share Your World –Week 46

Cee from Cee's Photography offers a weekly challenge to Share Your World . What a great way to share what is going on in my little mind without having to think too much.  Hop on over to Cee's and join in on the Share Your World challenge.  I don't do it every week but it is fun to do it every once in awhile.  This week's questions made me think....just a little bit. On a vacation what you would require in any place that you sleep? A comfy bed and good pillows---I have spent my share of nights … [Read more...]

Susie Q Cafe Valentine Diner Wins Hearts

Earlier this year Chris and I were on a quest to visit a lot of different places in the Mason City area and beyond that we had not visited previously.  It seemed like we had missed a lot in our town that we needed to become acquainted with.  So we visited this cute little diner called Suzie Q Cafe which is located in downtown Mason City on 2nd Street, NW.  What I forgot to do was write a blog post about it and of course when I looked for the pictures I took I could not find them.  So that meant … [Read more...]

Nature Loving Teapot on Teapot Tuesday

This sweet teapot was a gem I picked up while I was in Faribault, MN celebrating Audrey's birthday (from Minnesota Prairie Roots).  This one was at a lovely shop called The Nook and Cranny and it was one of a whole plethora that caught my eye but this one made its way home with me.   If you are even in the area you definitely need to check this gem of a shop out because they are loaded with antiques and gifts galore that just may need to make a trip home in your car. You have a … [Read more...]

Be The Ripple

Recently I gave a little presentation at our local Social Media Breakfast entitled Be The Ripple.  I shared with the group some of the great things that have happened to me over the years through having my blog and how fabulous it has been to be a part of this big world that becomes smaller when you have access to social media and the internet.  The basic theme of my talk that morning was that we can all start a ripple of our own in a variety of ways. I never have sought fortune and fame or … [Read more...]

Long Time No See Follow Friday Four Fill In Fun

It's been soooo long since I have linked up with Hilary at Feeling Beachie to join in on her weekly blog hop.  I don't know why----I just have had other posts planned out but today I am back on my game and joining her as she shares statements to use on our own blogs .  If you have some ideas of statements she could use pop on over to her blog--she is always looking for co-hosts.  Oh and did I mention she is the amazing author of Dangled Carat???   Check that out while you are popping … [Read more...]

Let’s Talk Turkey

You know what I am talking about!  Thanksgiving is just around the corner and all thoughts turn to turkey.  Well---maybe not ALL thoughts but a great deal of my thoughts recently have been revolving around travel plans for Thanksgiving and what we will be cooking and eating during that fabulous holiday.   We will be in North Carolina for Thanksgiving this year---Aaron has graciously agreed to host us in Raleigh once again and since we are all coming from 4 different states it will be extra nice … [Read more...]

A Chilly Reception on Teapot Tuesday

I am always on the lookout for different takes on the basic teapot and I found this little (and I do mean little) gem and had to make room in my collection for it.  It was a bargain price and it spoke volumes in character even if it is not a practical teapot for everyday use.  Not all of them have to be functional, right? Just look at the "coils" on the back of the fridge! Eggs and condiments in the door! Looks to me like it is fully stocked and ready for company! But perhaps it is … [Read more...]
