Fabulous Friday

I am so enjoying reflecting on the week staying positive, thankful and finding items

that make our lives a little happier, a little prettier and a little more fun!

Okay ladies, these are must have readers-but we have to save up for them.  

My doorbell rang a couple of days ago and there stood my neighbor wearing these,  

So incredibly cute...

So I snapped a picture right there and then!

Fabulous, flirty and fun!

I have been doing a little baking on these hot Summer days, nothing fancy in fact a little 

lazy-brownies from a mix, but you do know, they really are super good!

I found these cute ceramic measuring cups at Michael s, in those little bins marked

one dollar, two dollar three dollar.  

These were three and I love them!

I have been tinkering around and taking a few photos and I just like this one, 

I like the light, the white and the reflection.  

So sharing this joy with you...

I have been doing some reading on enhancing my eyelashes and adding some glow

to my face.

In my youth I had long lashes, in my older years I don't!

In my youth I had glowing skin, in my older years I don't!

These two products really work and I like them. 

The lashes feel a little weird at first as the fibers truly lengthen and feel a little heavy.

I am really enjoying the radiant boosting primer, I apply a few dabs over my tinted 

moisturizer on my check bones, brow and nose.

Everyone needs some color in their Summer time lives and of course Scout always

comes through with vibrant fun.

This bag is perfect to stow away beach towels, groceries, craft goodies or 

whatever your heart desires!

So have a Fabulous Friday!!


The Wicker Suitcase

Our Church has several ministries and I am very  

fortunate to be associated with one of them. 

It is Angel's Attic an interesting and well 

stocked resale shop.

Angel's Attic has donated more than $100,000 to

numerous charities both home and abroad.

I have been volunteering in their furniture hospital.

And I have been enjoying every moment of pondering 

over the various pieces of furniture that pass through

it's portals.

As well as enjoying  sanding, painting and developing 

caring friendships, along the way. 

And then one day this wicker suitcase appeared.

I casually eyed it for several days,

passing by it,

touching it,

picking it up and then setting it back down.

I am not sure of it's history,

I am not sure of it's actual purpose.

Is it a picnic basket?

Is it a child's bag?

Where did it travel?

The wicker suitcase shows little wear and tear.

Some of the grand babies put their baby dolls in it.

Some of the grand babies pack it around as if they

are going on a trip.

For now the wicker suitcase decorates our home.

However, it seems to me to be a bit of a mystery and 

am waiting to see if it takes me on any travels...

Happy Fourth of July

Happy Fourth of July weekend!
