Someone once said -

"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for the people who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." Amen

A Good Laugh is the best Medicine

Sometimes I just want to stick my tongue out at those drivers that
 pull out in front of you and then go 20 mph!!!

Touring some of my Music Boxes and Photos

Hello...I have been working hard rearranging our home. phew....had to move a lot of things out of our guest room. plus I decided to take my roll-top desk and move it into the dining room and and make my office more roomy and added a shelve for my EBay stuff. Its quite a job to do it all! I thought I would also share a few of my music boxes that I have been collecting for over 30 years. I have a ton more in my curio cabinet upstairs but that is another tour...

the table moved from guest room

top of table hand painted

this is a very old music box

another old fabric music box

music box

music box "serenity"

my niece made this for me she is a florist
I love Victorian

my roll top it is a smaller one

I decided to add my photos to it

this is a photograph taken on our honeymoon long
ago in Martinique, Caribbean

an original print of Laguna Beach

a photograph I took in Florida at a park and yes its real

the alligator posed for me lol

one of my favorite music boxes

this lamp I got in the 80s at an antique shop and the
tea cart was my mom's

this is photo at a camp park in Morro Bay
that I love

you can't tell in the photo but we had to move this
mirror because it is so long the desk wouldn't fit and its
heavy too

my daughter gave me this apron for my "B" day
and it matches the flowers I have
but the real kicker are the spoon and fork hanging on
the wall, I saw them on a re-run of
"Everybody Loves Raymond" hanging
in his mom's kitchen...lol...I got them
in the 70s

and this is "Suzie-Q" my head
for taking photos of my handmade items. lol

Sun Shine and Fry Foods And Earrings


The sun was shining out today!!!

Fried Food is it a heart Risk or a Myth????
It is a "myth" that regularly eating fried foods causes heart attacks, 
 researchers have found, as long as you use olive oil or sunflower oil.
I love fried sliced potatoes and bacon and french fries, but about 5 years ago the doc told me I needed 
to cut back, so I cut out french fries, bacon, no more fried potatoes and I guess it is better
of course I still didn't lose weight???? I guess its my portions, but I do love food. :) 
Now I read this and wonder what????? I wonder if I can indulge again????
They say there is mounting research that it is the type of oil used, and whether or not it has been used before, that really matters. The latest study, published in the British Medical Journal, found no association between the frequency of fried food consumption in Spain - where olive and sunflower oils are mostly used - and the incidence of serious heart disease. However, the British Heart Foundation warned Britons not to "reach for the frying pan" yet, pointing out that the Mediterranean diet as a whole was 
 healthier than ours.   
What do you think?????
