Twice this past week I received packages in the mail!
I know EVERYONE enjoys receiving packages!

You see, I was a very Lucky Lady 
and won two giveaways recently.

Please Be Alert!
There is a scam afoot
attempting to lure unsuspecting bloggers
into an advertising agreement with them.

A week or so after the Fourth of July,
I put the patriotic decor away until September.
After all the fireworks 
I wanted to cool things down a little! 
Honestly it didn't work because it was 101 degrees
here today. Not sure about the index.

Monet's Garden?

In a recent post I shared runners that I had made 
with fabric that reminded me of 
Monet's Garden at Giverney
Many of you agreed with me,
so I decided to alter the tablescape I had in mind.
I decided to try and interpret the master's
awesome gardens. I do know that is a tall order
but here goes!

Bedroom Reveal Redux

On Friday I joined
The Pin The Tail On The Bloggy Party
Thank you to all who visited me from that party.
I had many visiters that thought I was still
working on the bedroom. Maybe I should be, 
however I have been finished for a while.
Friday's post was a repeat. Since so many people
were interested,  I am also repeating the REVEAL!

Bedroom Reveal Redux!

New Bed For Kitty

I am just getting around to editing photos
taken when I was visiting 
my daughters back in May.
Kim is owned by several kitties.
Franklin, Alpha Male
 Butters, the Kramer of the bunch.

 Goosey, the interstate traveler
 Poppy, the only lady and princess.
Just had to show you Kramer Butters again.
I guess you noticed he likes to sleep in unusual places.

A Favorite Vacation - Blarney!

Have you ever visited a place and left without experiencing it fully and regretted it later?

Yes?  Me too! 
 In 1984, Bob and It toured the British Isles.
A special part of that tour was Ireland.
 One of the places I most wanted to visit was
Blarney Castle.
If you go to Ireland and you go to 
Blarney Castle what do you do?

 You kiss the Blarney Stone!
Not if you are me! You see, I had a broken foot!
That sounds like a broken record, I know. 
Let's see...I had a broken foot March 2011 
and April 2012. Well, 2012 was a broken toe 
but that's on my foot, right? 
April 2010, I was blessed to be able to accompany
my Son, Daughter and Grandson
on a similar tour of the British Isles.
 You have just approached the Blarney Castle with us
in the pictures above. I get a DO OVER!
As we enter the tower I observe 
what seems to be the exit. 
Hmmmm, that's good, at least
there is an escape.
 You think they had guns? Oh, arrows, yes, of course.
 Oh my! Daughter Kim and I get our first
glimpse of our route. The tour guide said 
127 steps!! That looks like at least 843 steps.
 My handsome grandson is taking pictures.
He refuses to be go on record as covorting 
with this group of looneys.
 These pics were not taken at the same spot.
They were taken along the way. 
That is my son in the white hat just below me.
 He knew I couldn't fall on him. 
There wasn't room!
We are looking at the bottom of the steps that are spiraling above us. That light is a photo glare, I think.
 Finally, a spot where handsome son,
 Robby, could stand beside me. Sorta!
 Just a bit further! What?
 Hey friends, don't give up on us now. We're almost there!
 Oh no, if you think you are going to get me
in the kitchen after that climb, you have
bats in your belfry.
 Kim, did you count those steps? How many left!
 Whew! Wow, nice view of the village.
 Up again? Kim, did you say you were counting?

 I am half Irish. My uncle SAID 
he had a place over here! Nice digs!
 Now THAT'S a birds eye view!
 We made it!
I counted 844.  Kim, what did you get?
 What? A queue?
 It is Kim's turn. Good, she didn't fall through
that big hole. I am bigger, I will be ok!
I have to remember, when I was here the first time
I was 44 years old, on this visit I am 70. I can do this!
 Whoo Hoo! This is me. The old broad did it! 
Whoo Hoo!
 Alright, I did it, let's get out of here!
 Me thinks it will be harder going down!
 Kim, get outta there. We got things to do!
 I wanted you to see this interesting view.
 We MUST remember NOT to enter the lobby below!
 That's not good, they're going to beat me to
I kissed that blankety blank stone, 
now, let's go shopping!

I remember this place.
 Oh yes, this was as far as I got in 1984!

I hope you enjoyed this Blarney!
Now, let's party here:
