Just Random Comments 9/16/2013

I now have 11,425 pins on my Pinterest and almost 9,200 followers. I invite you to visit it and see all the glorious and gorgeous photos/images pinned there. I don't think you'll be disappointed at all.

I don't wear T-shirts with logos on them. I don't need to advertise or draw attention to this chest. And as hubby has said, "Men are hard-wired."
The speed in which a woman says "nothing" when asked what's wrong is inversely proportional to the severity of the coming storm. (Personal experience!)
I'm a very reserved person in just about any public situation. I'm definitely assertive but reserved also. In my experience women are more so than men. Men? I've found that you put 2 men who are strangers in a room with a case of beer, 2 bags of chips and ESPN and they bond faster than crazy glue. These past 2 weeks in Southern California with our son and his boys testified to that bonding. Although, there was no beer involved, Diet Dr. Pepper, Pepsi and any kind of salty, spicy chip works just as well. ;-)


I love the looks of this home—the stone facade, the roof, the lushness of the flowers and the windows and the stone fence surrounding it. Just my kind of place.

Such a deliciously simple pillow but just adorable.

I was looking on the David Austin site for roses but found many other sites with his roses. I love his above all else. They certainly do well for us in this hot climate.

It's pink and adorable. Need I say more?

I also love the looks of this dining room.

We've eaten at similar-looking places in Mexico. It is a real treat to eat out and watch the ocean.

I thought this was a very clever way to dress a trailer or caravan.

A David Austin rose. They're so fragrant.

Just some adorable little do-dads make into magnets for a refrigerator.

A beautiful village street in Europe somewhere.

Is it apparent my thoughts are on sweets right now? I tell you I could mug a shopper if I thought she had chocolate in her bags!

And aren't these cookies adorable?! Sigh...

While in San Diego, I saw these Coach loafers and had to buy them. I had to fight my son and his wife to pay for them myself. We were treated royally by them. Best time I've had for a long time.

What an adorable vignette with a Good Seasons bottle filled with pink water, roses and an embroidered dresser scarf or tablecloth.

I ordered these shoes a few days ago. They'll be delivered tomorrow. Aren't they adorable? I love loafers and these were rated highly. Being raised in the 40s, 50s and 60s by a mother who believed in Classic clothes and bought them exclusively for me, I've never lost the love of "Classic" styles in clothing.
