Today I have a sad story to tell you about a very sweet loving boy I cherish very much, but alas we all have our hidden secrets and I'm afraid his is an addiction, suffered by many from the Great state of Louisiana, it's called Crawfish...so sad how this terrible addiction can cause a sweet loving young man like this...see how sweet and normal he looks.....sign, just breaks my heart...giggle..sorry .....turn into well you'll see....giggle....

You really have to look close to see all the beautiful detail in this glass I tried to get better pictures but nothing I put in it would bring the design out, it is so delicate.
Next is a set of Ice cream tulip bowls DH bought me about 8 yrs ago when we were junkin' in Hammond, LA, we had gone down farther South to the Strawberry Festival and stopped by an Antique Mall in Hammond on our way home....now DH acts like he doesn't like for me to spend alot or buy alot of stuff, but let me tell you a little secret, this man loves ols stuff as much as I do.
He loved these because when we were dating and first married, they still had a soda fountain at the local Drug Store and at the local Woolworth, and even though money was tight we would splurge once in awhile on a Sat. afternoon and get a scoop of ice cream and on a special occasion we'd get a sundae. These are the type of dishes they used...The tall ones, there was only 2 of these, is what they used for the sundae or sometimes an ice cream float. The little ones, there were 7 of them, is what they served ice cream in. It sure brings back a lot of memories to set out on the patio and eat home made ice cream out of these.
Next is a set of Banana split boats we found at the same Mall. DH also bought these, the big ole' Teddy Bear...lol... these are so pretty with all the cut glass work... it was so hard to get a good picture of the clear glass.
Last is a pitcher and 6 glass set that I won back in 1979 for selling the most Mary-Kay that month...yep, I sold Mary Kay, Avon, Tubbleware, you name it, if I could sale it and work full time also I did...lol...you do what you have to when you have 3 boys and a Hubby that works constuction, There are days when the weather doesn't co-operate....
I HOPE YOU ENJOYED MY VINTAGE THINGIES! SEE YOU NEXT WEEK! FOR MORE WONDERFUL VINTAGE THINGIES VISIT COLORADO LADY

But I realized that in less than 4 month's I have posted 200 post...my goodness, that's alot of words..but I also realized I have alot to say that I don't because I don't want to post 3-4 times a day. Which I have done....When that happens my first post of the day gets lost at the bottom of the page.
Well I realized the problem is I just love taking part in all of the Meme's Blue Monday, Simplewoman's Daybook, Wordless Weds., Vintage Thingies Thursday, Friday Family Foto, Pink Sat. Re-run Sunday. Faith and Worship Sunday and several more. I don't want to stop posting to these, and will not, but I am thinking about starting a blog just for these Memes and keep this one for my Country Memories and other post.
The only thing is I don't want to loss any of my sweet follows and was wondering if I did this, would it be too much of a hasle to follow me there also?
Just a few thoughts from the weird mine of Molly.
1.....4 pendents that I have made by hand painting my original designs on Dominoes., and added eye hooks to the top, these can be used as necklaces or charms for a bracelet or a key chain. 2.....a 3 piece set of ATCs..Artist trading cards. Must be your own original art work, These are not to be sold but Traded amount friends, those among us who trade them use them as mini art works, these are 3 from my set of Lovely ladies Series, they will come in their own little envelopes, but can be framed to hang on the wall.
3.....a bar of wax sealed decoupaged hand soap with a cute little teddy bear dressed in pink, the soap is usable, if used from bottom up and not left in water it will last for awhile. I only use Pure and Natural soap. Mainly because it is firm enough to hold up under the heat and hot wax.
4.....a little picture holder to clip to your purse, that will hold 6 of your favorite pictures. I love keeping my Grands pictures in mine and you can hang it on your purse or notebook or even a key ring.
5....the snowman wine glass that I used to demonstrate my pictorial ...it is 2 sided, such a cute little oddity.
6.....And last but not less is a tea for 2, tea set, and who doesn't like tea, it consist of 2 cups white with red snowflakes on it, a beautiful red floral infuser plus two 1 oz boxes of tea...1 oz. cinnamon tea and 1 oz. orange spice tea.

I knew it doesn't look like much right now, it needs more added to it, but just can't quit follow through with my thoughts right now. DH told me to take my sleeping pill and please go to sleep I was finding to much for him to do. LOL...first thing this carpet has got to go.... gottttt to gooooooo. ZZZZZZ.
This is DH, please don't wake this woman up, she is working me to death. Hope y'all have a good night. Shhhhhh.
I am thinking...
How very sad I am for having to cancel my Trip to Branson yesterday. But I hope I get over this crud soon.
For my Dr who is so good to me, and that I am fortunate enough to be able to go to the Doctor when I'm sick, I am thankful that I am feeling a little better and hope I can continue to improve.
From the kitchen...
Coffee, that's a given, not sure what else. DH will probably fix some oatmeal when he gets up. I ate a bowl of Cheerios to take my meds with, can't take this stuff on an empty stomach...we will play supper by ear. Depending on how I feel later today. Have some homemade soup in freezer I might just have to threw in Micro-wave...DH will make cornbread to go with it.
a purple night gown
I am going…
To rest as much as possible and try to get well.
A give away for my blog, this week I will post my 200th post. Also trying to finish up my T2T item for exchange with TT.
I am reading...
Some great new blogs I've discovered and still Studying The Chapter of John.
I am hoping...
I am hearing...
Around the house...
clothes need washing, floors need mopping others need vacuuming, dishes need putting in dish washer...but it will wait till I'm feeling better, DH will put dishes in washer, the rest won't go anywhere which is too bad....
One of my favorite things...
The smell of the fresh plowed ground, where DH is getting it ready for the seed.
Monday rest, rest, rest..
Tues. Go back for follow up with Dr. and maybe pick up a pizza for supper.
Weds. Clean or reorganize my paint room, a little at a time and try to finish up my T2T item for TT exchange, due Friday
Thurs. hopefully will feel well enough to go to the grocery store... and that we hear GOOD news from My GS's test.
Fri. Straighten up the house and get ready for the week-end...
Sat. Hope to be feeling well enough to go to the Braves game in Jackson, Sat night. My little Rissa-Kat is singing at the opening of the game. Her little 2d grade class from school will be preforming. She had to try-out and was excepted.
Sunday.. Will be going to Church and seeing all of the slide shows our group made while in Branson this week, at least I'll get to enjoy it that way..
Here is a picture thought for the day....
Hope you have a great day. don't forget to check out the other daybooks for today.
