Some Pretty Rooms and Great Granddaughter Stories

I'm still doing physical therapy for the sciatica and now some chiropractic also. I've always loved chiropractic and it certainly can't hurt. I had a "massage" by a young man who is very familiar with the body. I hurt when he got though but I was hurting badly when I went to him, too. We'll see what happens. And I thank all of you for sending me personal advice. I am definitely taking the magnesium and it's helping. But I'm on pain killers at least once a day. That nerve sure can incapacitate you! It's certainly disrupted my life for 2 months now,

Also, reminding you again to go to my Pinterest page with over 15,300 pins and 26,423 followers so far. I pin every single day and there is nothing on there but beautiful images. Go see for yourself because I doubt I'll ever get them all on my blog here.

And you know you're going to get some stories about our great granddaughters, too. Right? :-)

Some of the things the 4 year old said while we were over there recently:

At the dinner table: "Pass the French bread, my darling." [HUH!] But we did and she said, "Thank you." Her parents are very good at teaching her manners.

Then later at the table she said: "I have an announcement." And then told us what it was.

Then she told her dad to "Snap out of it. You need to focus, Dad!" We all just looked at her and wondered where that came from. Of course, she was trying to get his attention.

When we speak to her on the phone she always says, "Thank you for the call. And I love you, Nana and Poppop."

Then one night as she was being tucked into bed she told her mom: "You will never be alone because I love you so much. To be alone you would have to hide, because there is someone in this house that loves you so"

When we took her on a surprise visit to ride a pony cart she later told her mom: "I had a great adventure today, Mom."

This is a story she told her mom on the way to work several months ago, all made up of course. She has an extreme imagination. "As a child living in Mexico we swam in the ocean and ate fairies with a little tomato and Parmesan cheese. And then I was a pirate captain in the Sea of Egypt who found a boy who wanted to be a pirate but didn't know how to swim. So we took him to Egypt Swim School, but when they got there it was actually a house filled with gems that were booby-trapped with nails and they all had to run away." [As my granddaughter told me: This kid is nuts! LOL] Oh, and she's never lived in Mexico.

I think we're creating a snob here!! But they are cute, great granddaughters, in general I mean.

Blue is a beautiful color and I like it a lot also, so I thought you'd like this elegant home to check out.

This periwinkle color is lovely also. Very beautiful and intriguing.

I'm a gal who loves seeing a pretty laundry with all the pretty colors of cleaning paraphernalia, baskets, tins of soap, baskets of laundry, etc. This is gorgeous to me.

While not too elegant, it is something I'd love in a house big enough for it. Lovely and adore the colors.

This is cozy and intimate, more my taste.

A plethora of flowers over a draped door has me envisioning Mexico, which we visited many times. I love it more than any other place to vacation.

This reminds me of Mackenzie-Childs ware, which I've loved since the early 80s. They are a very quirky couple but produce gorgeous items for the home.

Even antiques shows looks gorgeous with all the lovely items they produce for sale. Not many around Idaho though.

How about this darling suitcase used as a storage for quilts for winter. Beautiful!

I thought this was a great idea for kids coming in from mud or snow or for washing the family dog. What a luxury this would be to the lady of the house.

Another flea market showing sweet sofas, desks and a plethora of desirable items we want. Cute!

A little sun room/porch to use as a place to laze around or eat in it in the summer time.

This is an English home—cozy, warm and life revolving around the kitchen wood stove.

I love this kitchen, especially the dining chairs and the french pastry cart.

Not sure what kind of flower this is. Looks like a multi-colored peony but I'm not familiar enough with flowers to be certain. Whatever it is it's beautiful.
Linking up with Pink Saturday.   


  1. That looks like a Peony to me, Connie, what a beauty it is.
    I do hope you will be feeling better soon. Sciatica is horrible.

  2. Lovely, lovely photos. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Hi Connie,

    The pictures you have shared are so lovely. I am longing for lots of white in my home although it is not happening in this house. Still living with the Victorian décor.
    Sorry to hear you are having pain problems with Sciatica. I too have issues with this but am keeping it calmed and am pain free with the selection of products that I am using. If you have an interest I would certainly share what I have been doing with you.

    Enjoy your weekend~ ~ ~Ahrisha~ ~ ~

  4. Thank you for such gorgeous inspiration sweet Connie. xx
