Thank goodness for Google. It was the name of a movie that came out in 1968...when I was thirteen years old, but stuck in my brain somewhere. Today when I looked at my guest room, at all the roses, on the bedding, wall, lampshade and curtains that's what came to mind. So I looked through by images and found ROSES...
...or maybe it was just this rug I bought at Ikea last night...
On a mission for dear Kristen we picked up a TV stand and 2 night stands. On the way out I saw this rug that last week was reduced to about $10, now reduced to under $6. Had the perfect place for it. Then I picked up a tray of cinnamon rolls, $4...amount actually saved on said rug...NADA! With the movers coming today, they may need a snack... purchase justified!
Finally this reminds me of a song, I Won't Send Roses...
I won't send roses, or hold the door
I won't remember, which dress you wore
My heart is too much in control
The lack of romance in my soul
Will turn you gray kid
So stay away kid
Forget my shoulder, when you're in need
Forgetting birthdays is guaranteed
And should I love, you would be the last to know
I won't send roses
and roses suit you so...
That last line kills me!
Now another totally random thing...After I looked up the lyrics to the song I wanted to know who wrote it. His name is Jerry Herman and the song was used in a musical called Mack and Mabel. The stars of that play, Bernadette Peters and Robert Preston. WOW! Love them both. So now I am listening to Robert Preston sing it on itunes! I am awed and amazed by technology, the world is really at our fingertips. Thanks Al Gore! :-)
Have a great weekend my friends and enjoy this beautiful day.

It has it's own frog for arranging, and I had roses in my stash. I added a couple to fill it out so the reflection is as pretty as the front.
and found a stack of goodies I've been collecting. Now for some inspiration...First I'll check my Valentine pins over at Pinterest, and see how I can brighten up this gloomy day.
Thanks so much for stopping by and for all your kind comments. Enjoy this beautiful day my friends.

Kris was able to keep her job and Doug is now job hunting. Their things are still on a truck somewhere between here and there. In the mean time they have camp chairs and inflatable beds, borrowed linens and the all important TV and Internet. We are less than 30 miles away, and they are blocks from brother Jon and Charlotte and many good friends and family. It is a happy time for me, but a time of change and a difficult adjustment for Mom and Dad. The change came much quicker than they had planned. I hope that being in Chicago will be a comfort to them. It is truly a dream come true to all of us who missed them so very much. I had never imagined they would actually come back home, in fact I stopped hoping. My dear pal Jean kept telling me, they will be back, and she was right, as always.;-)
Sunday, after a trip into the city, we left the little family to getting settled in. We had company for dinner, Jon and Charlotte, and watched the last half of the football game. My computer was on the blink and sweet hubby cleaned some things up so I was able to post. Things are getting back to the regular routine. The house seems quieter, but filled at the same time. Life is good, even when it's not perfect. My family is my treasure, and I am so very grateful for each one of them.
Now back to my life...I think I remember that... sewing, crocheting, crafting, thrifting...Blogging!...getting my house back in order after the holidays...until the weekend, when I hope to build that snowman, or at least pretend to... with my girls!
Thank you friends for stopping by and enjoy this beautiful day.

Things are going to get busy very soon, so forgive my absence. We have several things to move for our little one, including a well stocked kitchen, with everything from pots and pans to baking supplies. She is gonna love it! I'll be back with wonderful tales of time with my sweet daughter and darling grand daughter. Oh man, this is gonna be awesome, with a side of emotional!
Thanks so much for stopping by and for all your kind comments. Enjoy this beautiful day.
