Mom’s Day – Name Your Own Rose

I love my mom more than life itself, but I'll admit she is the hardest person to shop for! I've been struggling with what to buy her for Mother's day and her birthday the following week. She loves her garden, but has almost every rose known to man, except for her own. I fell in love with this "Name a rose" tin which is available at Fred Flare and "is outfitted with a pouch of unique rose seeds to name & grow, easy-to-follow growing details plus you can submit your unique name and it will be cataloged in the International Rose Naming Registry that is submitted to the British Library." How special is this?! Don't tell my mom but I have a feeling, Rose is going to get to create and name her very own rose this May 9th! 🙂

Merry Christmas!

    I hope you're enjoying your holidays! My mom, grandma and I are pretty thankful to have my brother this year, he was in a bad car accident on Monday evening. The car is totaled but he is doing okay (despite hurting his back.) We all know it could have been a lot worse.

    I hope your holidays are full of love, happiness, peace, gratitude, laughter and possibly a cocktail or two 😉

BTW….this is my 200th post! Thank you!!!!!


Lucy Goosie wanted to send holiday wishes to everyone as well, especially her favorite Aunt


Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night 🙂


Life of Freddy & Lucy

Many of you have asked how Lucy is getting along with her new brother, and I thought you should see for yourself……

Weimaraner Puppy Labrador Retriever Freddy and Lucy
What's funny about this picture is Lucy hates playing with toys. She has never played with a toy in her life, but now that the puppy is around, just to terrorize him, she plays with his tennis balls!

That blue thing behind the dogs, is a puppy potty training pad. Too bad Freddy prefers to chew on them, and carry them around in his mouth.

Is it just me or does he look like a circus monkey?

Loving Credenzas

I've always been a big fan of buffets and credenzas. Could it be that they remind me of my childhood and my grandma? Probably so. She stored everything in hers  from family photos, her brazilian embroidery, loteria games (Mexican bingo), and momentos. I've always been a busy body, finding new things and information has always been my thing…hence my lifelong dream of being a reporter. In the words of my grandma, * "esculce, esculce".

While hers was not as extravagant as these, I could totally see myself digging into either one!
