it got cold


on the right you can see teensy little baby marigold seeds coming up

It got COLD this week! I've been sorting out clothes in my dressing room, putting up "winters" and getting out "spring/summers"......this last week sent me searching for more sweaters, and my winter HAT!

"It's chilly out here!"

fun little books I got Fairy Granddaughter

Got this movie for Fairy Granddaughter, it looks good!:
I love these, they teach history in such a fun manner!
Think I've heard of this author (below), but not sure??
got this one for me! LOL

Found a nice old copy of "Little Women" for granddaughter:
I loved this book as a young girl!! I read it over and over. 
this one looks to be written at her reading level

love seeing this old story and all the old pictures

I've seen several movie adaptions of Little Women over the years. The other night we watched a really old black and white version. 
I also LOVED the version on Pureflix called "Little Men", (1998) I think It maybe went for a few seasons, and I wish they hadn't ended it.

Have you watched the "Little Women" movies and if so.....which is your favorite?
I've loved all of Karen Whites's novels, except for the spooky ones, I don't care for those. The rest of hers are GREAT.
wasn't totally sure if I'd read this one, so I picked it up! LOL

Does anyone remember "Strawberry Girl"???
the charming illustrations are by Lois Lenski

I remember reading Strawberry Girl when I was a little girl. I immediately recognized all the illustrations from so so so many years ago! Isn't it neat how we can remember things like that?!

more Pony books!

this little "Jada Jones" book is autographed

illustrations by Vanessa Brantley Newton

 I love reading Nancy Rhyne books! I don't care for the ghost stories.....but I do love the HISTORY AND FOLKLORE!

One night last week we took an evening walk:
the air was refreshingly CHILLY!

I had on a shirt, a sweater, AND a shawl, LOL

the sun is setting, the shadows are appearing, and lights are now softly glowing in the houses
always look UP!

beautiful etched glass in these big doors

and a big sparkling chandelier inside:

the moon is a sliver

flowers blooming in the moonlight

Colorful night blooms:

got my new little blue pocketbook at the thrift store a week or so ago.....I do love it! It's REAL SOFT leather, nicely "broken in" I guess. A Good cleaning and used pocketbooks turn out fine, pocketbooks are my weakness, ha ha ha LOL! I buy alot of them. I love fun accessories....pocketbooks and scarves, fun jewelry, etc. Oh, and HATS, I do love hats!
Pretty night scenes:

Arm candy! LOL
Yesterday was my birthday, so we've been out celebrating, it has now heated back up and it was 90 degrees yesterday but I had a GREAT DAY!!
Hope everyone's weekend was nice and your week has started off great!
I shall be around to visit y'all later tonight.


  1. OH NO! I DID NOT know it was your birthday!!!!I am so sorry I didn't know the date. Oh my! I feel so bad...Lily Grace would have loved to have wished you a Happy Birthday on your birthday! And So would I! So I guess we will just have to do it now! Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Debbi! Happy Birthday to you!! And Many More!!! God bless you dear friend. I really wish I'd known. Oh, I love this post and all the pictures and books...love those sweet old books. I loved Little Women. I prefer the movie version with Katherine Hepburn as Jo. I think Elizabeth Taylor is the younger sister, or maybe I'm confusing it with another, but that's the one I liked best. Yes, it was a bit chilly here last week, but it is warming up quickly here this week to make up for it I am sure. I hope you had a wonderful birthday. God bless you dear friend.

  2. Dear Debbi, I wish I had known it was your birthday! Allow me to wish you a belated but no less sincere HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY in which you did everything you wanted and nothing that you didn't! And YES has the weather not been crazy! Since when does the pirate have to wear tights to church in the month of MAY??? Since two weeks ago Wednesday when it was in the mid 40s! That was crazy. Boy it's hot now, though! Your walks always yield such interesting pictures. xoxo

  3. Happy Birthday sweet friend! Sounds like you had good old summer weather to celebrate! I've been thinking about you and wondering what you were up to. Of course I LOVE all of the children's books and how fun it would be to see those Little Men shows. I sure wish there was more good entertainment like that on TV! I can't even watch the commercials for the new shows...they creep my out! lol Hope you are celebrating ALL week long! My oldest son shares your birthday. Lots of birthday HUGS coming your way!!!

  4. What a great post with beautiful photos, lovely books and YOUR BIRTHDAY! I'm so sorry I didn't know before but very belated birthday wishes. I love all the little women films and all for different reasons. We're oddly hot -- then cold -- then hot again. Who can figure? I give up.

  5. Happy birthday!! I love Karen White but I admit that I like her spooky ones...I’m reading Falling Home right now and have been waiting for a ghost to show up haha..enjoyed all the pictures!!
