My Newly Renovated Bathroom

I couldn't find anything to watch on TV tonight so I thought I would post some pictures of our new bathroom.  We had a soaking tub where the sit down vanity is now.  I am not a tub person and I got very tired of cleaning dust and hairspray film on it!!!!!  I don't want to clean something I don't use so off to the dump it went!  We pretty much ripped out everything in the bathroom and started over.  I gave a picture I found on the internet to my very talented contractor.  I look back at the picture now and boy my cabinets are way prettier than the picture I gave him! :)  We retiled the shower with a porcelain tile that matches the marble countertop without the worry of taking care of marble in the shower.  I'm thrilled with the results!

My New Christie Repasy!

The other day I shared with you the beautiful treasures I bought from Christie Repasy at the Roseville Antique Market.  The picture I was waiting for arrived today!  Isn't it gorgeous?  I picked the frame from a photo she sent me.  I couldn't be more thrilled.  The colors blend perfectly with my new sofa and chair.

Tea Cup Tuesday!

I have long admired Lady Carlyle by Royal Albert.  I love the multiple colors and the pattern is so pretty and sophisticated!  I found quite a few offered on Ebay.  I first bought a tea cup but I knew it wouldn't stop there.  Since then I found a tea pot, sugar and creamer and a beautiful bud vase.  Having a table set in Lady Carlyle would be the ultimate setting for an afternoon tea.  That might take some searching!

My New Pretties!

I wanted to share with you some of the pretties I found last Sunday at the Roseville Antique Market.  Of course they were all from the very talented and very sweet Christie Repasy.  I have one more on it's way to Roseville.  I promise to share it with you as soon as it arrives!

Tea Cup Tuesday

Last week I wrote about my aunt giving me  my very first tea cup for my birthday many years ago.  This beautiful tea cup called Serenity by Royal Albert is the one!  It has always been my favorite.  I love the dainty style and the soft colors.  I also love that someone so special gave it to me!  Thank you Auntie Kay for starting my collection for me!

 I was so thrilled today to have the opportunity to meet Christie Repasy at the Roseville Antique Market.  Not only is she a super talented artist but an absolute sweetheart!  I wish I could have filled a trailer with everything she brought it was soooo beautiful!

A Little Touch of Spring!

Barry Manilow!

My hubby asked me last night if I was going to post a shrine to
Barry Manilow(my favorite singer) on my new blog.  I said 
"ha ha very funny".  Then I got to thinking ( hmmm) what a
great idea!   Heaven knows I have a ton of pictures! :)   I drag
my hubby all over the country to see him!  I don't know why
he keeps threatening to sell his tickets! :(  We were in the 
audience at both of his PBS shows in Las Vegas and New York.
Last October  a couple of days before my birthday  ( I used that
as an excuse to see another show)  we saw him perform at the 
Hollywood Bowl.  What an amazing night!  I think he likes the
shows more than he admits! A couple of  years ago he surprised
 me with the most amazing Christmas present ever.  It was  a
platinum ticket to his show in Vegas  which includes a front row
seat and meeting him in person!  What a thrill it was!  My hubby
was thrilled too...he got to sit in the sports bar while
I was having my platinum experience!  Go figure!

No matter how much I get teased I still think you can never have too much pink!

Who said pretty tea pots have to be china?  This one was five layers of YUM!

A Few Of My Tea Cups!

Many years ago my Auntie Kay gave me my very first china tea cup for a birthday present. It was the start of something wonderful! I love displaying them throughout my house.  Having tea parties has become one of my favorite ways to entertain!

Grooming Day!

Not one of Sophie's favorite things since it interferes with her nap!  She has pretty new pink gingham bows!

The Roseville Spring Antique Market

Something fun is happening in Roseville on Sunday April 18th. Christie Repasy is coming to Roseville for the Spring Antique Market! I love her art work! More than 50 should be fun! Did I mention Christie Repasy is going to be there? :)

My Baby!

If it ever stops raining she can come out of the garage!  My 3 year old grandson asked me "Is that your race car Gramma" ?  I said, yes it is!

Francis Scott Key Elementary San Francisco 1956

I found this old photo recently from 1956. It was our Halloween parade at school. The kids today don't know how lucky they are to have more than one style of glasses to choose from!  I'm the cowgirl.

Sophie taking her afternoon nap on the sleepy couch! What a life!
