Saturday Sampler...

Today is just a mishmash of entries in my look back on... :-)

Gideon had his 8th birthday this week. He not only got lots of extra tidbits this year, since it fell on Thanksgiving Day, but he also got his traditional cheeseburger on Friday. He was snoozing on the couch Thanksgiving afternoon and I told him I was taking his birthday please look at the camera. He obliged and gave me a wink to boot!

He's my fluffy angel. :-) What would our family be like without our dawgs?

Though Kurt was fighting off a man-cold this week, I DID venture out on Black Friday afternoon to look for a microwave!

**I'm not a woman who has the COURAGE or stamina to venture out in the WEE hours with the Die-Hard shoppers!)

Lowe's was having a big sale. Our over-the-range microwave here is 20 years old according to the manufacturer's date and we could tell! (can't exactly say I'm confident about the seal around a door of a 20 year old microwave!!) Alas... it needs to be replaced. We found one that had excellent ratings in Consumer Reports AND had big savings! Waiting on it to be shipped and delivered. Rah! I love the fact that Lowe's will deliver the new, AND take away the old appliance FOR NO CHARGE!!!

I found the Cedar Rapids library this week, and got my card!!!

I checked out my first books. In the library here, all I have to do is lay my books on a scanning, and they register on the screen. WOW! I like that.

Loved flipping through the book below put out by Country Living.

Inspiring photos

See if your library has this one. YOU will like it.

NO Surprising News Here....I tweaked again in the Living Room. The picture over the mantel got switched out for a large mirror, because of the 10 foot span of windows on the opposite side of the room. It reflects all that light and makes the room brighter. Plus I decided I wanted to put that picture in the other guest room.

And so This...

Became This.... (tweak tweak - feather feather)

which you may remember from the mirror mirror post

And the picture ended up here...This room is evolving...

I like the rope or braid look of the curtain rod I found at Habitat, but it still seemed to need something so I padiddled around some more...

Guess I needed to add some more twigs to this part of the nest...

Slowly buy surely...and you know may change AGAIN...Getting everything in JUST the right place with JUST the right look is a journey and process. And when it is announced DONE...I'm sure Da Man CHEERS! (inside) He's very good about saying if something looks GOOD! A Patient, Patient Man.

And that is just a sampler post of various things happening around this nest.

By the Way....Have any of your men ever had a Man-Cold? Here's the symptoms in case you aren't sure!

Okay are you laughing yet??? :-) *this is an oldie, but just too good to not play once every flu season! My Iowa man isn't quite that bad.

****A lot of people don't understand what the EMT answers after Laura asks "What about me?..I've got a cold too" He answers..."myeh myeh myeh myeh...ever heard of Lemsip?" (probably like our Nyquil) LOL

Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Hugs to all.

God bless our Courageous Military Heroes.

!!!*** UPDATE ***!!! The wings have sprouted! This PIG is ready to fly! :-)

Awwwww poor littl bunny:) Too cute! Hope your fella shakes that cold and feel much better!

Love the Mirror over the mantle! I think it looks much better! I have a mirror over my mantle too!

Have a blessed day and keep feathering! You are making that house a home! Everybody good back home? BIG HUGS!

I can not believe what a difference changing out that picture for the mirror made in the living room! WOW! I think I'm going to be finding me some mirrors!

And I absolutely love the idea you did over the guest bed. Adding those branches just really set that whole arrangement off! Love it!

And Happy Birthday to Gideon. LOVE that wink he gave you...absolutely love it! have caught that on camera is just so precious!

I will have to look around for the book by country living. I posted one of the pics (of the kitchen) on my Pinterest board.

I couldn't tell you how hard I laughed at the Man Cold! SO funny. Grateful my Strong Heart isn't any where near that bad! ;-)

And lastly...I love the feathers you found for the pig! HA!

Hugs to you, Julie dear.
