Our Sole Mates........What they mean to us.........

His Mate Is Gravely Injured

He Brings Her Food and Tends To Her

The Next Time He Returns With Food, He Sees That She Has Died

He Tried To Wake His Dead Mate

He Stands Beside Her and Screams

Finally He Stands Beside Her, In Sorrow

Photos of two birds, said to have been taken in the Republic of Ukraine, where the bird tries desperately to save his mate.

Millions of people cried after seeing these photos in America and Europe. It is said that the photographer sold these pictures for a

nominal price to a famous newspaper in France. And all the copies of that newspaper were sold out on the day it published them.

Love is not finding someone to live with; it's finding someone you can't live without.

I truly feel this way about my husband, children, grand children and each of you that I can blog with everyday. It's great to have friends so distant but just a click away from the computer. Each of you have come into my life and I've made some great friends here. And just a huge thank you to those of you who pray for my mother and Gloria you are so sweet and such a wonderful person; god made a good one when he selected you! Thank you for your friendship and more.

Here are my winnings........our local auction on the internet..........

The ottoman will be used either in the great room (I have a Ethan Allen table in there now but the grand-kids scratch it up) will be better for the grand-kids. This ottoman was less than $135.00.
The picture I wanted for the frame. It was less than $40.00. I don't know where this will go yet?
I just love auctions.
I adore beautiful frames and a lot of times I will buy the picture for the frame or the photo and change them out to fit the look I am trying to get. I have 9 pictures that I recently bought over the last 4 months in the over all scheme of getting some unfinished business done in completing my decorating before summer of 2009. A lot of planning; I make list for each room and what I think I want to do and then keep that list in my purse and when I go shopping I pull my list out. It helps keep me focused on my vision.

A New Look for an Old Lamp...........

I felt a little last night so I decided to give the old look of an old lamp a little make over; adding feathers was just the right touch. This is going in the office that will eventually get a
new face lift also. My favorite tool used a "Glue Gun".

First Post of 2009 and It's an honor!
