speaking of giveaways.....

it's my 100th post....yea! in honor of this occasion i've made a little diddy from the "fly" collage i used on my christmas cards. it's a small plaque approximately 6 1/2" by 9 1/2".


i've placed it on one of the book covers i found on a junkin trip.

these angels are actually my aunts....both of whom have their heavenly wings now. i've always been told i'm just like the blond one.....some think that's good.....others.....not so much. i think it's a good thing! anywho.........if you'd like to throw your hat in for a chance at the giveaway just leave me a comment on this post. if you put a link to this post on your blog i'll give you two chances. for those of you who may not have a blog an email address or some form of contact will do....and of course if you do have a blog make sure i have a way of contacting you if you win. i'll draw the winner january 4th. good luck!


yesterday when i came home i caught a glimpse of color in my otherwise bland garden beside the porch. on closer inspection i found that one of my vinca plants has decided to share a little of her spirit with me.....thanks little friend! what a bit of cheer on a gloomy...rainy....winters' day.








i just finished a lunch of jamie olivers' crispy and sticky chicken thighs with squashed new potatoes and tomatoes from his jamie at home cookbook. i added a little onion and a few cloves of garlic before baking. as the folks in my family say.....it was so good it would make you slap yo momma (something NONE of us have ever done or would consider doing!) it WAS good. i'm gonna try his italian ham and spinach tart next.


well....'nuff ramblin.......off to the kitchen for a cup of joe.......................
