 We have been having the nicest Summer
in Alaska......Warm sunny days!

 I wanted to thank you for all your wonderful salad ideas
I found a great salad recipe
 I wanted to share that I found on the Anthropologie blog.
It was delicious, 
you can find the recipe for the watermelon salad here!

How's your summer been so far?

Rambling away.....

 Mr. Milo is so quiet
and sneaky I didn't realize, while I was on the computer
he had curled up behind me.....
Whats your favorite salad topping?
I'm looking for some new ideas.
Fondue or Beans?
This sweet little family came to visit....
Mimi had a friend over and I always love how they
convert every square inch into Barbie town....

Mimi's thrifted treasures.....
and last George trying to get in on the action......

I hope you all had a lovely week,

My best thrift.....and pie pie pie.....

 These fun fish mounts walked into the thrift store the other day
and when I asked the price I heard $475.00 but really they
were $4.75........
 They are amazing....Jeremy got the Mai Mai in his room!
 and Cory got the Tuna.....
 someone had paid a pretty price to have them mounted.
Made my boys day!
I have to say these may be my best thrift find yet.
 I picked rhubarb the other day....and so I made
4 rhubarb/strawberry/blueberry pies.....
 I had some friends out for dessert and gave a couple away....
 I love to make pies its just there not something you want around
very often......temptation!

We are having AMAZING weather.....we hit 84 degrees at the house
yesterday afternoon......its glorious but our crop of mosquitos right now
are just awful.....

Enjoy your day....

So Happy to be Back!

 I finished up with the Estate sale yesterday
and I must say I'm glad to be done....
We have been working on it for the last 6 weeks!
 We all learned a lot and had a great time in the process.....
The estate had a collection of about 1,500 records......
I picked out about 6, just for the covers of course.
This was one of my favorites
looks like a Mad Men party to me!

Happy Fathers day to all the Dad's out there.
I'm off to catch up with you all,

Russian River......and George!

 We have been having lovely weather here in Alaska
and between being super busy getting this estate sale all ready.....
 It's just been to nice to be sitting in front of a computer....
so I wanted to apologize for not visiting you but after are never 
ending winter I'm sure you understand with views like this!
 I went with a group of friends on this hike yesterday. 
Its one we had done last year buts, 
its always beautiful and a great one to take with little kids!
Yesterday my little George had a seizure.....
I guess this is common with little dogs
but it was quite scary....
and I pray he never has another one!

I hope your all having sunny days.
Take care,

Yard sale treasures......

 How cute is he?
I went to an estate sale of a local artist......
Love my new owl...

I bought these scenery and landscapes
for a friend as a house warming gift.

I think she was so talented.....

P.s. Fish and Game stopped by
and he walked for 2 hours and couldn't find Mabel so he 
felt confident that she was back with her Momma.....
a Happy ending!

take care,
