It is raining in Southern California! They are saying we are going to get rain in Biblical proportions. Watching the news can always give you such peace, NOT! Yesterday was rain free and I spent the day with Noah and Aunt Maureen. We all had a wonderful time. Noah actually told me "I know everything now, Gamma!" Pretty scary, especially since he is only 21 months. That is a lot of words all together! He was talking about driving. He thinks he can drive a real car. We are in deep trouble. He thinks Elmo is real and has to have him everywhere he goes. Elmo, however, can not talk too much or it freaks Noah out and he turns off the toy.

We had played so hard together yesterday, he fell asleep during lunch. He was so hungry that he was eating with both a fork and a spoon, at the same time.
When he was done, he just collapsed in his Mama's arms. I was so tired I wish I could have done the same thing with my mom.

So much for Grandma's bragging. I can't help it. I took some picture of white and black things I have up. The Pastor was joking today, in church, and said, if he ever had to move me, he would pray for the rapture that day! Just so you know, in my defence, my home is not like the hoarders you see on TV. I have it neatly in storage bin, in the basement. Everything is ready for the new month or season. One comes up and the other going back in storage. I am defending myself. Is that a sign? Oh no!

Change subject quickly, forget what you just read. Now, Ladies, do not forget my give away ladies. Information is on the post below. Have a great week. Do something special for someone! Blessings, Martha

You're so much fun Martha. There is a wit about the way you write that I really like. Noah is adorable and so is what you're showing today. I love the black and white pieces, they're very pretty.

Love that black and white tea set. I absolutely love this rain and we need it. I know you don't favor the cold so bundle up and stay warm. Spent the day with my 3 squirly grandsons...wore me out. Did you change your blog look or do I need to fine tune my meds?...lol

love ya,

He's so cute! He's moving out of that baby phase into that little boy phase. My nephew is so much easier not that he has moved past the "terrible twos". He hit them with a vengeance!
Your whites are all beautiful. i hope you weren't too embarrassed at church, I say if you're organized and you have the room, go for it! I hope you have a great week Martha!

Aaaw I think it's cute :-) To have little one's ask questions or tell you things on their mind - it's priceless :-)

Belated PS! I enjoyed looking through all the pinks you have in your home.

I love the black and white! So very pretty and different from what you normally show. Noah is a cutie. When Zack was little, he carried a doll everywhere at that age. He would never admit to it now. Or was it Yusef? Honestly, I can't remember a thing! Hope you stay safe and afloat during the downpour. Blessings, Tammy

Marha, Martha, Martha. You are so hilarious. I love your writing and your posts. Noah is a living doll baby and sooooo smart. Loved the black and white things, too. You have so many gorgeous things. I think you should open a shop! Wouldn't that be the pizazz? Have a great day, dear Martha! Sincerely, Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com

What beautiful things you've shared and how adorable is Noah in his bright red sweater with Elmo. Yup ... it's raining where I live and I'm a happy camper. Molly and Ms Kitty ... not so much ... and it's going to be a LONG week for both of them!
Hugs and blessings,

You are a very well organized lady with themed decorations. That is NOT hoarding. Sadly, hoarding is a form of OCD. Not the form I have, thank God!
You made me laugh when you said "watching the news gives one such peace...NOT!". True dat!

Keep dry - Noah's not building a large boat, is he?

♥Mimi♥ said...

Listen, you just brag on about that little boy as much as you want! He's adorable. Yes, he does know everything, you know - he's gonna grow up to be a man!☺

Hi Martha, I just found your blog from BJ's blog, Seens from the back of my eyelids. It's wonderful. I live in So. Cal. too. We're up in the high desert. We sure have had a lot of rain today too. Your grandson is adorable. I also enjoyed all of your sweet treasures.

People Who Know Me Would Say: said...

Hi Martha, Thanks for stopping by my place and saying hi. It's how I discovered your blog.

I love vintage things and collectors, so I'm following along. Didn't think you'd mind too much. :)

Terri said...

Noah is adorable, that what he is. (Oh, and hide the car keys...all the car keys!)
I love your rose teacup. I have a collection of tea cups as well. I have been thinking about posting one a week. Would that be interesting?
I think you are not a hoarder, but you like a change, fresh look, each month. I think that suggests a very creative and active mind. A good thing!

Your site is lovely..and I love your writing voice. Love how you go on about sweet Noah too. I'm Nanna to a precious grand-daughter, Ashley. I too find myself bubbling over about her. I sincerely believe it's what proud grandparents are supposed to do.
