Chandeliers, Shop Vignettes, Vacation

I collect chandeliers
... photos of them that is...

Here are some beauties from shops I visited
while on vacation at the beach last week

... This one was through a shop window in the evening ...

Bottles in a window always delight me

And white decor gathered on a table

And anything under a cloche

And anything that
P  A  R  K  L  E  S

And although this photo doesn't go with my theme,
I just had to show you the cousins posing on the beach!
(our Afghans and our daughters Shelties)
I hope you have a relaxing weekend!
My husband had surgery on his shoulder this morning
(torn rotator cuff) and is doing well
(pain pills are a good thing)

Thank you first of all, for coming to give me a virtual hug at the blog! MY EMAIL IS UNACCESSIBLE! The "process" of migrating my account had started last night and while I was trying to follow the directions to create a new password, it corrupted my gmail account for entering into my blog! I was on the phone for about 2 hours with the helpdesk line at Bethel with whom my email account is activate and where I went to school (and Ruben teaches). What a nightmare!

SO......I don't know when I will have an email. THIS POST IS MARVELOUS my friend, and the goodness, those two HOUNDS are so photogenic! They make me laugh; they look as if they KNOW they are modeling! And the cousins are sweet and those chandies...well, you know how I feel about those!!!

I MISS YOU!! Anita

Oh, Violet, we really are soul sisters!! I love all the same things you do!! You post the most gorgeous photos , and it's just like window shopping! I bought a chandy this week for $10. It's from the '50s or '60s , I think. If I had your email addy I could send you a pic. And speaking of email, poor Anita!!!! I DO wish you could both come and visit me THIS WEEKEND!!!!!
God bless your poor Hubs. That's no fun, so I know you're spoiling him good!
Ruff-ruff to that quartet of Beauties!

MY VIOLET!!!!!!!!

I MISS YOU SO! Yes, I spent ALL MY THURSDAY EVENING, when I usually start writing my new post for Friday, speaking to someone at the Help Desk at Bethel where my email account is set up. What a mess.....they were unable to help me and yes, I think I will need to go through GMAIL, but I guess that means that I have to change my paypal and etsy email sources.....BUT I want to spend this weekend having some fun. I am wiped out.

SO YOU ARE DOING SOME GLITTERING????????? I am going to do the same this weekend, as I prepare more tags and cards. Give Randy a hearty BONJOUR for me.....and I hope that his recovery is SWIFT and that the coming cold season will NOT be too hard on his healing. Oh, how I love this post, and YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will keep you in the know as far as the email through HERE. I am unable to even check the old email, but for SURE, I am unable to receive any.

HAVE A FUN DAY....back later? I hope to post something by this afternoon.
