If you have followed my blog, you know I have a real fondness for transferware.  I have red, blue and brown.  This shelf is in my dining room and filled with all kinds of beautiful pieces of brown transferware.

A month or so ago, I went to the Tulsa Flea Market and while walking up and down the aisles just checking everything out.......

Suddenly, I see this booth that has this amazing brown transferware pitcher.  GEORGEOUS!!  I talked to the lady and finally got it for $28.00.  I was so thrilled.

I was so thrilled that I wrapped it up and just left the flea market.  Couldn't wait to get home and find a place for it on my shelf.

Then, I thought to myself - self, why don't we stop at Sonic and get a Route 44 Diet Coke and we'll be set for the evening.

So, as I got home, I got out of the car with my gorgeous pitcher safely wrapped and in a bag with handles, my wonderful Rt 44 Diet Coke, my purse and keys.

Took about 4-5 steps and fell on the concrete sidewalk.  Shattered my pitcher and spilled my Diet Coke.  Now, how much worse could it get!!  Well, I couldn't get up.  I fell on the right side really hard and my whole right side was just aching terribly.

Luckily, my phone was in my purse still on my shoulder.  I called Tiff and she and Adam came immediately.  They were afraid to try to lift me up and called an ambulance.  How embarrassing!

Went to the hospital and spent 9 hours with them checking everything out.  I had Xrays and Cat Scans and no broken bones.  Thank you Lord.  I just had deep tissue bruising.

So, to make a long story shorter, I have had constant pain in my right shoulder and am having an MRI on Tuesday and see the orthopedic doctor on Thursday.  I have already informed him that if I have to have surgery, I can not do it until after the wedding in September.  I still have too much to do.

So, no photo of the beautiful brown transferware pitcher.  Wish you could have seen it.  It was a really beautiful piece.

Busy Couple of Months

Well, summer is in full bloom here.  We went from April 2018 being the coldest month on record here in Tulsa to May being next to the hottest month on record.  We had no Spring - just went from bitter cold to sweltering heat.

Things have been really busy here the last few months - here's a idea of what I've been doing:

Laynee had tubes put in her ears,
Went to large citywide garage sale in Neosha, MO,
New tires put on car,
Gave a bridal shower for Tiff's friend,
Sister Rita's birthday,
Graduation parties for friends' children,
Graduation excercise for Laycee & Kaycee,
Memorial day,
Laycee had strep throat,
Laynee had bad bite of some kind requiring two doctor's visits,
Made Tiff's bridal bouquet,
Made six bridesmaids' bouquets,
Last day of school for Laynee,
Spent time with my sister during and after her knee surgery, 
And a partridge in a pear tree!


Then Tiff and I are going to NYC and Boston for her to be in a wedding and we'll do some sightseeing also.  NYC is one more thing off of my bucket list!  Only two left after NYC.

Back yard already looks like a jungle.  Have had lots of pretty flowers this month.

And of course, my favorite - yellow roses.

Tiff's wedding plans are coming along nicely.  I think the only thing we have left is ordering the cake.

I have started on the 5 corsages, 10 buttonnaires, 10 table decorations and the decor for the actual ceremony.  Tiff had her bridal portrait made last weekend but I won't be able to share because she doesn't want Adam to see her dress until the ceremony.  Drats.

Hopefully, I'll do a little better.  Have missed you all and thanks to the ones who have checked on my absence.

Have a Happy and Blessed Easter!

Happy Easter!!

Can hardly believe Easter is here already.  It is also April Fools Day which is my son's birthday!

Here are just a few of Spring and Easter decorations I have.  Haven't done a whole lot of decor this year.  Don't know where my time goes but at the end of each day, I wonder what I did with the day?????

Isn't this a cheerful way to celebrate Spring?

The Redbuds are in full bloom.  You know that they are Oklahoma's State Tree don't you?

Easter tablescape out on the patio.

Felted bunnies and eggs.

Vintage Easter chick with little violets.  I think they have a different name, but don't know what it is.

A pretty little piece to put at each place setting.  A Robin's Egg Blue Egg, a little moss and a vintage wooden spool all atop a cupcake stand.

The Lilies of the Valley are in full bloom.

These three are anxiously awaiting the Easter Bunny.  Yesterday, they all got their hair cut.  They cut 10" off of Laynee and the twins both have chin length hair now.  I will get some photos soon.

And finally, I know Bella is telling John up in Heaven "Thank goodness I don't have to wear those ears again".

Have a Blessed Easter.

What A Wonderful Week!!

John always teased me that I didn't have a
"birthday" but rather a "birthweek".  I seem to always celebrate my St. Patrick's Day birthday for the whole week.  I really don't see anything wrong with that, do you?  LOL

Thank you for all of the birthday wishes yesterday.  I've had a whole week of fun.  On Monday, I drove to Pryor to visit my sister Rita and then meet up with a bunch of my classmates for a luncheon.  It was great seeing them again.

Thursday night, Tiff and I took the girls to see the Ballet Cinderella.  They did pretty well but we did have to leave a little earlier than planned.  They were all getting sleepy and could not understand why the dancers were not talking.

On Saturday. Adam and Tiff and the seven kids (Adam has two little boys) and Kim (Tiff's best friend and my other "granddaughter") took me out for Mexican food.  It was so good!

Adam took all of the little ones home and Tiff, Kim and I went to see "I Can Only Imagine".  If that is one of your favorite Christian songs, you really need to see this movie.  

The "spring" flowers are coming up like crazy.  

The trees are blooming out also.

I love how the Hostas just pop up out of the ground so suddenly.  You can look one day and they are not there and then the next day - BAM!!

I went to Oklahoma City on the 9th and got a good report and don't have to go back for six months.  I made that trip every Friday for six weeks so that was great news.  My eyesite has been wonderful ever since the day after when they took the bandages off.

Have some cute photos to share but am having trouble loading them on my computer.  Soon, I hope.

Enjoy the beautiful weather if you are having it and for those of you who aren't, I hope yours come really soon.
