Stealing Snickers Bars

Love Bunny and I were having lunch at home recently, which is where we have it when I can't talk him into eating out. :-( We had gone grocery shopping earlier to pick up a few things (Hah!! A few things cost me $79.35 that day.) and even with only 3 things on my list to buy, it always gets out of hand, let me tell ya!

Anyway, I bought a Milky Way Caramel bar for me and a Snickers bar for him as I usually do once in a while. We were eating lunch and he told me to stop eating half of his Snickers bar. I thought I'd replace it before he found out. Guilty! (It's the 2 bars in one wrapper kind.) Then he proceeded to tell me I'm not re-wrapping it properly. I just looked at him dumbfounded. Huh?! I get in the fastest way I can when I'm needing a chocolate fix, and how I'm supposed to open the candy bar is the farthest thing from my mind. He said I'm supposed to tear it down the side and then twist the wrapper to keep it fresh. Noticing my befuddled look, he continued and that's where the fun began. I had a mouthful of macaroni and cheese and almost choked from laughing and almost spit it across the table at him. He then knew why. Looking at me losing it he said, "Oh, I forgot—with you there is no 'keeping it fresh'." Since I wasn't able to stop laughing, I just kept nodding my head yes. The man knows me well after almost 51 years of marriage. And apparently he still loves me even when I steal half of his Snickers bar in the middle of the night. If that ain't love, what is? ;-)

I have used this gorgeous fabric for pillows but this sofa looks beautiful also.

I'm not into rustic much but I could definitely live here. It's beautiful. Elegant Rustic or Rustic Elegance?

What to do when you find a good deal on vintage doors.

A place to daydream.

Another idea for decorating vintage items you find. I've done this to a bedside table and it's gorgeous.

Eye candy! Claudia, you could store all your knitting/crocheting yarn in here beautifully.

I also have a stash of this beautiful pink fabric.

A sweet garden room to fix your plants in for the season.

A Mackenzie-Childs style table and chairs.

I find this coffee table absolutely exquisite. I'd love a top like that.

I love this idea. Darling and inexpensive to make with scraps of fabric around a coat hanger and add a pretty ribbon for a hanger. Put on any door even.

A cottage you might like to visit for a vacation.

I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan my day. But I try my best to do something to lift at least one person up each day.

  1. Yessirree Bob, I could use that pretty container for all my yarn! I hope you're having a great weekend, Connie. Happy Easter to you and yours.


  2. Happy Easter Dear Connie, I do hope the Easter Bunny brought you a big chocolate bunny and Da Hubby a Snickers Bar! Loved your pics

    Thx for sharing


  3. Hi Connie! Cute story about the chocolate bars. Life "a deux" can be wonderful! The two of you are very blessed!

    I love that pail with the toiletries and jewelry in it. It makes for a pretty storage container! The rustic living room appeals to me very much. I find it cozy! The granite tub with the decoupage on it containing the yarn is very inspiring. People think of so many wonderful things to do that have never been done before, yet they're so simple! I guess that's what inspiration is!

    That pink dresser is to die for in my book! The coffee table you love is one of a kind, isn't it! I love it!

    Well, I hope the Easter bunny brought you all the chocolate you can eat, especially a huge Milky Way Caramel bar! Thank you once again for the lovely, inspiring photos!

  4. Dear Candy bar stealer LOL! I covered my dining room chairs with the first fabric and a bench.....Oh I love it and all of the eye candy thank you!


  5. I love that you ate part of your hubby's candy bar! I do hope you had a nice easter.


Comments are so nice and I thank all of you that leave one for me.
