To all my friends,
I have been away from my blog for several months.
I just lost interest in it...not sure just why.
I started my blog in 2007 and never once tired of it
or had trouble coming up with subjects to blog about.
I am going to try...TRY... to be a better blogger.
I would also love it if you would follow me on Facebook and Instagram.
I post 3 or 4 times a week over there.
I've gone back in archives for this post.
do any of you remember him??
I saw him once, in person, and I'll NEVER forget how great he was ...
He passed away a few years back...
I know he is carrying on with his talents up there in Heaven.
I saw him on television right after Katrina hit New Orleans.
Because of his wife's poor health, they DID NOT evacuate....Their home was flooded.
He was born and
has lived his whole life in New Orleans.
He was one of my very favorite ROCK AND ROLL singers in the 50's and 60's, with
BLUEBERRY HILL being my favorite song..
OOO, how he could WORK THAT PIANO....!!
Speaking of BLUEBERRIES
ummm...they are EXTRA good this year.
So juicy and sweet..
They are extra good for us, too...don't cha love it when something
that TASTE so good is actually GOOD for you!!
I know a lot of you work outside the home and don't always have time
to make fresh BLUEBERRY
Muffins for breakfast...(or any OTHER kind of muffins)
That's why I LOVE having MIXES in the house.
I DON'T work but I do remember the days when I was always in such a hurry in the
mornings that I settled for a bowl of cereal...
So....what I'm sayin'...
.... there's not a thing wrong with using MIXES...
just ask SANDRA LEE
of SEMI HOMEMADE :))
I like to ADD things to mine to make them....uh...well...........MINE !
A tiny little bit of extra sweetness...
a cap full of PURE VANILLA
and.....in THIS case...
I love my pretty sugar bowl with Betsy Ross and her flag.
and I love my BLUEBERRY MUFFIN with butter...
uh hu.....I surely do.
This tea tasted twice as good to me out of my pretty blue cup
with the famous ride on it. 💘
...and speaking of BLUE
For as long as I can remember, I have loved the color BLUE
We get a lot of the ideas of things we LOVE from our mothers or someone close to us, I think.
My mom loved BLUE
I love BLUE
and my daughter loves BLUE
Neither of us use the color very much in our decorating but we both have
and white transferware...
These dishes I am using are the LIBERTY BLUE
was sold in GROCERY STORES in the 70's.
They are such collector items now...
it just amazes me that if I had only been able to get my
FORE SIGHT and my HIND SIGHT together,
I could have STOCKED UP ON THIS STUFF !!
I read, on a blog somewhere, that the THRILL of the HUNT
was lessened somewhat by EBAY and such sites.
I agree...it's MUCH more fun to find your collection pieces in thrift stores,
garage sales, flea markets..
HOWEVER...had it not been for Ebay, I wouldn't have all the extra
plates, cups, bowls, saucers, serving pieces
to my beautiful set of LIBERTY BLUES
Sooo...we just take them where we find them...
and be happy......
I'M HAPPY !!
"I found my thrill......on BLUEBERRY
...it lingered until......my dreams came true.."
Thanks, Mr. FATS DOMINO, for this amazing song that
had so much meaning in my young life...!
...and, as songs sometimes do, it congers up memories of an old BOYFRIEND !! :))
I LOVE GOOD MEMORIES...!!
I am blessed to have a LOT of wonderful memories...
you know, some make me cry...
most make me smile
and a lot make me LAUGH OUT LOUD 💞
