Meet Milo......

 its been so nice
 walking Mimi out to the bus in the daylight again.....
 Check out my new wise friend.....

 and his little partner in crime.....
 How sweet are these little pins I found for Mimi......
and now without further ado heres 

He belongs to one of Jeremy's friends
It started off being, he just needed a few weeks
and now as long as a year......

He's a great cat so now the problem is
just being patient until the dogs are ready to meet him 
or vise versa.

We have had beautiful weather

George's new do and a big Thank You.....

 All George needs is a pipe to complete his new look....
I love the next picture, I wish it wasn't blurry!

 and little Jerry on his favorite couch.....

I wanted to thank Catherine for hosting such a lovely giveaway
that I was fortunate enough to win.....
She always has such lovely items for sale.

Are any of you having a hard time keeping up
with life, blogging....the day to day stuff!
I want to apologize for not getting to visit all of you like

I'm Curious???

 I'm curious, what are your top 5 ways you beat the winter blues...
Living in Alaska you get used to long winters!
 or if you don't ever get the blues during long winters.....
 what are your top five winter activities?
 I can't wait to hear what you all have to say?
I googled these beautiful Alaskan scenes
This one, although slightly blurry. 
Looks like an oil painting to me
I love the red!

I sat today in a $5,000 massage chair with a friend
and I thought with a cup of tea
I could get through some cold days in this luxury....
Then I came home and had a lovely cup in my own chair
and it was just as nice.....almost!

Wisdom to be shared and enjoyed....and a cup or two!

I can't wait to share more about this sweet little book
I purchased and my two happy little mugs!

Mimi teacher gave her the flamingo
we thought he was post worthy too!

Take care,

Happy Valentines day......

 One thing that you can always count on in our house
 is sugar cookies on Valentines Day!
Mimi and I love to put Vintage Valentines around 
 the house.....
 I think I decorated cookies for 2 hours yesterday.
I had to have a tray for Mimi's class party and I brought a tray full to church
for our soup supper last night. 
 I can't believe we are in the Lent season already.....
 It's almost time to start bringing out the Easter goodies.....
 What ever your plans maybe today,
I hope there extra special......

A little of this/that and some thrifting on the the side

 I love That were starting to get longer days
in Alaska now.
 Mimi and I found this sweet umbrella thrifting 
It now hangs sweetly above her bed.
 Found these cute little roosters.....
 and this daisy lamp!
 This great pot
 I'm going to give this a try.
 had fun changing out the laundry room shelves

What are your plans for 
Valentines Day?

I always make sugar cookies
frosted with sprinkles in the shape of hearts
but thats about it.
I'd love to here all of your plans,
