My life is to make everything around me beautiful.

Love Bunny In The Kitchen

I told Love Bunny recently that he's pushing the edict I gave him for staying out of my kitchen. Now, this is not meant to be mean to the man. He's a wonderful man; he just doesn't clean up like I do. I told you I'm obsessive about a clean kitchen! And I am. That's where food is prepared. I've been in women's homes where I wouldn't put anything in their microwaves because of how they look.

About 3 or 4 years ago, we took a trip to Utah for a wedding of a friend's daughter that we'd known since she was about 3 years old. We stayed at their house and I cleaned her microwave and told her if I saw it that dirty again, I'd paddle her backside! She grinned. She and I share a birthday but 20 years apart. We also share an unusual middle name. We figure we knew each other in the pre-existence. I love this kid. But I'm honest when I told her to keep her microwave cleaner than she does! I can tell her anything and she still loves me. One of the greatest moms ever. She introduced me to the Gospel. I've always told her she pushed me out of Heaven so I'd be older than she is. ;-)

Anyway, hubs is getting much better about cleaning grease up and wiping counters off when he makes a tomato sandwich. I love that man beyond reason. Yep, I sure do. But I sure wish he'd stay outta my kitchen! ;-)

An entrancing yard. I saw this and just loved it. Looks like a house in Southern California.

I cannot seem to get enough of bows on lamps and this one is no exception. Not a particularly pretty lamp or shade but that bow brings it up to just plain cute.

While I have no idea what kind of flower this is or even if it's Photoshopped, it's beautiful.


This could be a cute activity for kids: making lace paper dolls. Even I'd like to do it with all the laces I have. Make several and put them on a string to make a banner of them.

Vibrant colors will always catch my attention.

And I love making ribbon roses also. Just go off into my craft room and make ribbons for hours sometimes. I always have several I can make something gorgeous when I need to.

The inner most part of a beautiful flower.

I'll forever love bougainvillea.

Quick and easy idea for a night time picnic or patio.

Pink strawberries.

Another of my mottos! Truly!

Pretty way to display roses anywhere you can find a place to hang a bag.

While this is not my style, I thought some of you might like to see the ingenuity of one homeowner. Clever.

And another embroidery that is too lovely to pass up. Gorgeous!
