I'm Still Here!

Yes, I'm still here. I'm still passing kidney stones and on pain killers for it. I'm just leaving you with a bit of "eye candy" today and will try to post more tomorrow.

These are some gorgeous paper roses I bought and put into my original bridal bouquet holder today. It's almost 48 years old now. Hah..... But aren't they gorgeous roses?

I received these little magnets saturday. I love them!! My brain is soooooo not working tonight because of the pain killers that I can't remember where I got them, but I'll post when I can remember. They are on my fridge and holding "beautiful things."

Hopefully I'll get all these stones to pass quickly and be back posting regularly. It's all I can do to keep up with the daily stuff at the moment.


  1. You poor thing Connie - how horrible having to pass kidney stones. Hope you are on the road to recovery real soon.

  2. Ooooh Connie, Sorry to hear about your stones. I know all about them because my father has battled them all his life and now my son is doing the same. It can be so painful, but thank God he let us have pain pills ::)) are you seeing double yet? whew hoo. Just a little humor..I said "little" Get better soon kiddo. Pearl

  3. Take care, dear Connie!
    Hope you will be well very soon.

    Thank you for sharing your beauty.

  4. Connie...I had been checking to see if you were ok & had passed any!....girl..please stay in bed or on the couch!!!! I know how bad they can be..& how "fuzzy" the pain meds are!!!
    Feel better sweets!!!! & we are thinking of you:)
    PS....STAY HOME!!!

  5. Hang in there Chick! Until they've all passed, take a break and don't worry about keeping us entertained! You're allowed a sick day or two.... three every now and again.


  6. Connie - you poor thing! I can't believe what you have been going through. You did great in the ER. I'm impressed. You gotta work the system to get what you need. I have never had a kidney stone, but I have heard it is a very excrutiating kind of pain. And you still entertain us in the midst of it all! Feel better soon!!!

  7. I am so sorry to hear that you have been through the wringer!!
    I hope you will feel better soon. I have issues with this too and know first hand how yukky (nice word) it can be!!
    Hope you are feeling better and back to your wonderfully perky and creative self soon.
    You have such a cheery and positive personality that I know you will be making us all ooohh and ahh over some terrific eye candy or project in progress soon!!

  8. Oh wow, Connie...I do hope you are feeling better and feeling back to your sweet chickie self soon!


    LOVE THE ROSES! Where did you get them?

  9. Hi Connie... Sure was sad to hear about your health woes... I'll send up some prayers for you! I've been way behind with my blog visits, but am slowly catching up... enjoyed seeing all of your beautiful things... especially the PINK items! Hope your Holidays were wonderful... Please stop by for a visit when you can... I have some awards for you! God bless...

    ~hugs 'n prayers~

  12. We are all wanting you to get better quickly ......

  13. Hello Connie, I'm so glad your doing a little better today. Hopefully you won't pass anymore stones. I love your roses and your door post was adorable. Loved your closets and all your pretty towels. Your old house was charming! Embroidered linens are so pretty. Food storage is amazing!
    Hope you keep feeling better!
