~Easton Railway~

Last weekend…we went to one of our favorite shopping placing in Columbus and they had a train display in the shade of the trees.

At first…we saw two small blue trains.


Than came two more longer trains.


Then all three trains caught up with each other…so I was able to get all of them in one photo.


I have always loved trains. I can still remember the train that my dad put under the Christmas tree every year and he recently gave one to my little grandson to put under their tree.

Also wanted to share with you what greeted me when I went outside the other day. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one like this butterfly before. Does anyone know what kind it is?


Until next time….. Blessings from me to you, ~Cindy


~Wanting More White in the Living Room~

Before our trip to Tennessee…my sister and I went out junking to a few of our favorite junk/thrift shops. Right when I walked into the store…I saw this beautiful large white pitcher and it said it had to come home with me. Cost $5.00…someone made it and it was signed on the bottom.


I have it displayed on a stand by the front door and it looks very  pretty in the evening with the lights in it.


I’m still working on things in the living room.


My little Yorkie, Chloe…loves the old cart. When I can’t find her, I now know to look under the cart. I think she thinks that she is hiding…but it seems to be her favorite place right now.


I’m still working on changing some things out in our living room. I really want more white in our living room. So I’ll be trying to work on that over the summer. Hope to find some white goodies at the Endless Yard Sale.


I loved the white pitchers on the tavern shelf…but my hubby put up a shelf in the kitchen for my white pitcher collection and they looks great in there.

I also really like the white quilt and the white farm sign in my dining room.


Think I’ll go thru some of my magazines and favorite blogs to get some white ideas for my living room.

Until next time…..blessings from me to you. ~Cindy

~The Mountains of Tennessee~

I recently shared photos of the cabin we stayed in down in Tennessee…which is one blog post back if you missed it.

On the way home…I took several photos of the beautiful mountains.


Everything was so green and pretty.


Even the river looked green.


The rolling hills were green too.


Even the rock wall was green.


Not only were the mountains green…


…the sky was a beautiful bright blue.


It was such a pretty drive home.


It was great to get away to the Tennessee Mountains…but it is always good to see the bridge going back into Ohio and home.


Until next time…. Blessings from me to you. ~Cindy










~Cabin In The Mountains~

Just got home from spending four days in a cabin in the Tennessee Mountains. Thought I would share some photos of our trip.

This is the front of the cabin.


And this is the side view of the cabin.


We stayed at Laurel Fork Rustic Retreat.


Come on in and I’ll show you around.

This is the living room…had a picture of the furniture and I seem to have lost that photo. Yes…our Yorkie girls went with us and we put their crates in the living room for them. At bedtime…they slept at the end of our bed.


Just look up at the pretty loft. We had to block off the stairway…so that the Yorkie girls couldn’t get up there. I didn’t want them to think that they could take a jump from up there!!


We had a small kitchen and it was just perfect for the two of us.


And it was all open to the living room.

Come on down the hallway to the master bedroom…it was very pretty and cozy.


There was a chair in the corner of the bedroom with this pretty gathering on the wall.


Well…I realized that the little figures were a grandma and grandpa sitting on the self by the chair. Guess the cabin was meant for us to rent…because we are an old grandma and grandpa…LOL… Yes…my hair is white…well it is really more silver and my hubby has gray hair with a white beard.


I’ll leave you with this saying that was in the cabin.


Yes…we were lucky enough to be in the mountains for four wonderful days!!

Until next time…..Blessings from me to you.~Cindy












~Yorkie Tote Bag~

As most of you that follow my blog…you know that I love my little Yorkies.

Here is my sweet little Chloe…she smiles when I talk to her.


And this is little Zoey…who loves to look out the front window and watch what is going on outside.


A few years ago…I made this little Yorkie ornie and it hangs on a peg-rack in my sewing room.


I was in my sewing room doing some embroidery the other day and I saw this large tote bag that has been hanging in my sewing for a long time. So…I decided to embroider me some sweet little Yorkies on that large bag.


…and I love how it turned out!!

Until next time…. blessings from me to you. ~Cindy




~Now I’m Playing in the Living Room~

We had been wanting new furniture in our living room for a while now. After going to several furniture stores…we finally found some new pieces for our living room.


Got a new sofa and a chair & 1/2…but my favorite piece is the old wood cart that we got from the wood store in the little town we live in. The cart is a little beat up on the top, so my husband is going to sanded it down some and if that doesn’t work…he will put new wood pieces on it. I just love that he does wood working.

I had some rusty tin containers that I gave makeovers to…painted them silver and it gave them more of a farmhouse feel.


I really like the pieces better painted silver…than the rusty brown. They now show up much better on the black bookcases.


This next tin piece I got at Hobby Lobby. It is a huge tin candle holder and I love the farmhouse feel it has too. The milk bottles came from Hobby Lobby too.


Just had to share the pretty sunset we had last night…from my back yard.


Until next time….

Blessings from me to you.  ~Cindy

~Playing In The Dining Room~

I decided that I wanted a change in our dining room…that would give me more of a farmhouse feel.

First thing I did was paint this brown pitcher…


…to silver and I think it says farmhouse now that it is painted the silver.


Next I put the 3 tier Pottery Barn tray on a burlap runner in the dining room table.


While trying to figure out what I wanted to put in the tray…I decided to layer another runner on top of the burlap runner. Then I got thinking that I wanted to put some embroidery on the top runner with a farmhouse design.

So up to my sewing room I went to put a design on the runner…


…and I really think this rooster design says farmhouse to me.


I decided to put some of my smaller white pitchers on the 3 tier tray and added 3 burlap flowers in the middle tray.


I really like how it turn out…and says Spring to me. Even though it has been really cold here in Ohio.


Until next time…. Blessings from me to you…~Cindy
