~ Strawberries


 We just LOVE
strawberries...


I think most people do.....

I don't think I've ever known anyone that didn't like them....
I've known quite a few that were allergic to them and they
have my sympathy....! 


They are so good ANY way they are served.
I especially love them for breakfast.

Waffles...

pancakes...


"When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?"
"What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?"
"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet. 
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said.” 







...they are awesome cut up into a salad..


Look at that vintage BUTTERMILK
GOBLET...I just love it. I found it and another like it at Goodwill one day a few years ago..

When I was little, my step-g'mother had a lot of these. She gave me one and I have to find it and use it....



THESE look so amazing and I sure am going to make them 
before the strawberry season is over.


I made a Rustic 
 Strawberry Galette once for our girl's birthday
and it was out of this world.
These aren't HARD to make and they look sooo impressive. 
Sorry, not sure which recipe I used but you can Google it.
 

This morning I had strawberries and whipped cream
over Cinnamon Sugar biscuits...


When I saw this photo I  took,
I had the urge to stand, hand over heart and SING...
♫♪ "Oh, say can you see.....♪♪


Come over to the parties and join in the delicious fun.

I am in Deep Trouble...

FIRST OFF...

I have searched HI and LO for this wondrous SPRAY PAINT
and there is none in this whole town....NONE... 

Walmart can order it for me...no shipping charge if it goes to the store
and I come and pick it up...

THEN THE BIG NEWS IS....


$15.00  per can....



and I am going to need at least two cans...
$4.00 lamps plus $15.00 for 2 lamps......do the math, bj.
That's $38 for the pair......NO WHERE can I buy lamps two for $38....
but STILL....I'm trying SO HARD to be frugal here....!!!

Now, keep in mind....... Gray and white throw....on a gray sofa...


 I have gray shades just like these...
so...
what would be wrong with spraying my lamps WHITE..????
(MUCH cheaper..)
sitting on BLACK TABLES...

but would white METAL lamps look good...???







OOO....this trying to be thrifty can drive a girl to DRINK...


xxx000xxx, bj




8/27
I just received my POTTERY BARN catalog and guess what....???
it is full of BRASS...
BRASS LAMPS
BRASS CANDLESTICKS
BRASS LIGHTING
If POTTERY BARN SAYS "brass is back"....well....I believe it  !  

and...as I work around here...things are changing...
may not even NEED lamps...I am spending waaay too much time
looking at PINTEREST
and IT keeps changing my mind.
