DID I EVER TELL YOU I COLLECT BLUE GLASS?
Hi Ladies: Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day, I know I did! The day was spent with family, plus the romantic dinner and movie! All was right with the world. I took a few pictures of Noah and Maya, we were at the Arboretum in Arcadia, CA. The plants there were breath taking. I joking told Maya I wanted to take a peacock feather from the bird. She thought I was serious and quickly gave me all the reasons for not even thinking about it. One of the reasons she gave was she did not want to see me in jail. She was so cute. I was scared of the peacocks, that is the last thing I would ever do. Boy, did she want to make sure her Grandma was did not break the rules. Too cute!
I took of few pictures of things in my bedroom. Did I ever tell you I collect blue glass? It can be Fenton, blue milk glass any Blue and White Transfer ware, Blue depression glass, if it is pretty, I just may collect it. I know, not good. Believe or not, I am trying to only pick things now that are very spectacular and selling off the others on Ebay. I call it trading up! It makes me feel better.
I meet a lady by the name of Carrie, today. Her blog is http://oakrisecottage.blogspot.com. she, too, is collector. It was so fun, she sent me a list of some of the things she collected and much to my surprise, except for about 4 items, we had similar collections. This is just one more fun part of blogging. I have always thought of myself as this weird woman with "hoarding tendencies". The only difference with between me and the TV show is my house is fun to look at and you can clearly walk around. (When you start see pictures of my house with no room to walk, please make that call for me!) Anyway, Carrie, sounds like she and I are going to be great friends. Stop by to visit her, when you get a chance. Tell her Martha sent you!
I am going to redo my master bath in the next few weeks. So you will probably be seeing pictures soon. I have one of those big Jacuzzis, the ones that can fit two and it is gray. The tile is also gray so I am going to have to get around that a bit because I am tired of the color. It is going to be messy for a while, but it will be worth it when I am done. Still trying to get my act together for "Tea Cup Tuesday". I haven't forgotten, so please keep it in mind. Wishing you the best God has for you this week. Remember to cast your cares on Him, because He cares for you! Lots of Hugs, Martha
PS: I hope you do not mind the song. It is call "Blue". It reminds me of my son, Kyle, when he was little. He liked it so much he was "blue" for Halloween one year. Everything was blue, even his hair! It brings back good memories for me. (Feel free to turn it down!) Love ya!
