can you see the mug with the Christmas lights on it? Carl found it at a little garage sale years ago...it is so cool. When washing it you have to be so careful, if you scrub too hard the paint will wash off. Thank goodness I didn't put it in the dishwasher the first time I used it. Here are .....
more holiday mugs. For Halloween I do trade off between these three and then for St. Paddy's Day, Easter, and Thanksgiving I like to use the same mug for the whole month. I'd love a 4th of July mug, but I've never seen one for that holiday. Have you?
Love, love, love hearts and here are some of my heart mugs. The Queen of Hearts is another favorite. Now here are my motto mugs......
Carl was with Campbell Soup Company for 38 year and we have lots and lots of their mugs, but these are favorites. The mall is a good place to be, don't ya think? I know I'm loved but I think the mugs on the left from the most important people in my life are neat.
Here are the mugs I use daily. Each morning, when I have my coffee, I tend to choose a different mug. They are mementos from fun trips or from someone special and the little one in the front (I really think it's a cup) with the sweet roses is my current new favorite. I bought it at last months WX Peddlers Faire......and I've been using it everyday...go figure. I never know what will tickle my fancy.
Well, there you go. Please stop by, we'll chat.... I've just made a fresh pot of coffee, what mug would you like to use?
This MeMe was so much fun and now I'm tagging....
Patty at Attic Clutter
Pea at Pea's Corner and
Priscilla at Priscilla's Cottage
I hope you'll join the fun.......Hugs, Linda

Yummy zucchini and a different variety of summer squash.
Nectarines, Royal Ann and Bing cherries.....plus I got two new pair of earrings......
Love my earrings.....yes, these are earrings. When I was little and you found double cherries we would drape them over our ears and walla...earrings. Did any one else do that??
Remember the beautiful tomatoes? Well, I made the best sandwich, maybe not the healthiest but the best ever. Two slices fresh white bread, Best Foods Mayo on both slices, sliced tomatoes, a touch of salt(Carl like lots of pepper too), a few rings of red onion and then top with the other slice of bread. Mmmmmm, this is delish. I hope you try my sandwich...enjoy, hugs, Linda

Yesterday, we took a ride up to the sierra's to see how things looked. We love to RV and wanted to see what the conditions were like and let me tell you...the forest is so green and lush and the three lakes in the Crystal Basin are full. The water is soooo very clear and the air smelled so fresh and clean. How beautiful is this? We'll be up there for at least a week in July...Carl can't wait to fish and I'll be poking around, a little hiking, boating, reading and stitching. Perfect.....I can't wait either. On the way home we stopped in Placerville , where there is a nice little stitchie shop.
This is Kelsey's...it's right on the main street and I know if you stop in you'll find a little treasure or two. I found a couple of treats.........
Two Halloween stitches...one for me and the other for Lisa, and the project bag is for Lisa too. Isn't that the cutest kitty pattern...love it! Oh, shhhh, and I found a little treat for my friend.
Well, it's good to be back. See you soon. Have a lovely Sunday.....Hugs, Linda

Here is the tablecloth ( ivy and little red flowerpots) and apron I was telling you about. Someone made this darling cloth with the fancy edging. At first I thought it was crochet, but now I'm not so sure. What do you think? I cross stitch and when I saw this apron, with all the cross stitching, on the $1.00 table I couldn't pass it up.
Here is a cute little girl for Christmas and I found this......
little chick for Easter. Well, it back to work for me. Enjoyed our chat. Remember, when in doubt ....try a piece of ivy. Warm hugs, Linda

I found some little treasures yesterday at the WX Faire.....two of my purchases are washing right now....a cute little apron and the sweetest little tablecloth with a crochet edge. I'll be sharing them later this week. Well, I think the wash has finished, time to get back to work.
Hope the sun shines on your day....hugs, Linda

This is my favorite purse...I can carry so much in it...I think I could live out of my purse for several days. Everything except the kitchen sink is in it. Well, this is the purse I carry everyday and take to the peddlers faire. I'm always having to put it in the cart or have someone hold it...Carl is always telling me to carry something smaller so my hands are free.....and I agree that's a better way to go, but I love this purse. Well look what my honey found last week at a garage sale.......this darling organizer.
It's a Brighton and I love it. I know, a Brighton...he finds the best things. It has all these wonderful pockets and compartment and best of all I can fit all my essentials in it. Well, I have my bracelet and I'll be shopping hands free.....I'm over the moon. If I find treasures, I share them in the days to come.
Have a wonderful weekend......see ya soon. Linda

Hi honey.......time for lunch. Nothing fancy, but isn't this just a blissful spot. Carl had lots of bites and I know, it sounds like a fish story, but a big one did get away. Guess who had the catch of the day? That's right, me. Just a little fellow...to small to keep...but so much fun to bring in.
Walking up the levee you never know what you'll see. I think this is some sort of a thistle, kind of pretty...but awfully prickly......
And I don't think I want to know what lives in there....hopefully just a furry critter.
Well, time to head home.....same time..same place..next week. It's a date!
Find your spot and enjoy.......Linda

While you are shredding and preparing your bread crumbs, heat oven to 400 degrees.....
To make meatloaves: In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except ketchup, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Place approximately 1/3 cup beef mixture into each of 12 medium muffin cups and press lightly. I actually use a measuring cup. Next......
Spread ketchup over top and bake for 20 minutes or until it is no longer pink and the juices runs clear........ I usually serve with mashed potatoes and a small salad.
Well here you go.......Enjoy......Hugs, Linda
