Australia: The Movie

Have you seen the movie "Australia"? I was expecting something completely different. I thought it was going to be your standard western type movie but I was pleasantly surprised. It's one of the best movies I've ever seen. Beautiful scenery, a great story line and a happy ending!
You don't see movies like this very often! I only wish I had seen it in the theater. The scenery is so beautiful that it would have been great to see it on the large screen.
The little boy, "Nullah" is adorable. Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman are great together.
Watch the trailer and see what I mean! And then go rent it or better it! Just the scene of Hugh Jackman bathing is worth the price!
I hope you enjoy it too!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all!

I am reminded that today is the 15th anniversary since my Grandpa passed away.
He died in his sleep less than a year after my Grandma died. I still miss them both and it seems like yesterday that I saw them last.
Today I will light a candle in their memory
and think about all the good times.
I miss you both more than I can say............

Vintage Graphics Website

I found a great website today that I had to share. If you need or just like vintage graphics here is a website with lots of beautiful images that are free to use and do with as you please. I thought they were great for adding to blogs or using some of the simpler designs as avatars,etc. Every holiday is represented with vintage and contemporary graphics. Click on the free source book link for even more designs. Hope you can use them! Have fun!

Back To The Oregon Beach!

I recently posted photos of my last trip to the beach here but it was raining that day and it wasn't quite the experience I was hoping for. Well, yesterday we went and it was glorious! The sun was shining and it wasn't too windy....well, it was.....but it was okay....the sun was shining! We went to the beach first and took a walk to the bayfront to look in the quaint shops. If you ever want to visit a very clean and pristine beach go to Newport, Oregon and visit Yaquina Bay. It's a fun place to visit and it has the most beautiful beaches and scenery. Great fishing and crabbing too!

My Sister's Etsy Shop:SignOfTheDimes

Every Photo Is A Clickable Link To That Item

I've decided to feature my sister Kristy's etsy shop:signofthedimes

She sells primarily vintage jewelry and parts that can be
used to assemble new pieces. You can find a variety of vintage items there.
Please visit her etsy shop and see her touching story about dimes!
Great job, Sis! Good Luck on etsy!

Hammock Time: It's Coming!

It's March 1st! Yay! Getting just a little bit closer to some sunshine and warm weather!
Yes, it's a theme around here as I lament the cold, rainy, windy and snowy winter we have had around here. I'm a summer girl!
I have a thick, quilted hammock that I adore. It's on a green enamel hammock stand.
There is nothing I like better on a warm sunny day than to drag it around my yard to the most perfect spot to take a nap.
It even goes camping with us!
There is no better way to take a nap or just contemplate life.
I take the grandkids out in the sunshine when I can and we rock in the hammock like an old rocking chair. It's so comforting to me and hopefully they enjoy it too.
Maybe I will be able to take it out of storage soon?
I hope so!

I wish you all many happy, hammock days soon!
