~ Match.Com..?~

" Meet Sushi-adorable and moody biotch, but oh sooo loveable. Nearing 21 (human) years of age, this single lady loves to bark and snort when she gets excited. Her hobbies include sleeping, barking,sleeping,eating,sleeping,shredding up leftover papers,sleeping again, and turning her back on the male species. She is particularly fond and proud of her bowed legs, one of which heads south when she runs. She enjoys counting her spots and rarely brushes her teeth. She has lately considered herself a full-size gal having gained a pound over the last year. She does not want to have any puppies because she claims it will stretch her beauty marks. This gal is up for a good time as long as it does not interfere with her daily naps. Willing participants should e-mail her at"
" Meet Buger (Lynn's youngest). He is unable to disclose his age as he was abandoned as a young pup during a fleamarket fiasco. Mistaken for an old hand me down sweater, this little guy snuck into a nearby rusty watering can only to be rapidly snatched up by Lynn. Being dragged several miles through Canton with SR pulling the cart, poor Buger became so motion sick that he passed out for several hours and woke the next morning in Lynns yard. What's a dog to do? Well, for starters, scratch at the front door and act injured when the owner opens the door. Which is exactly what Buger did and the rest is history. This little guy enjoys barking non stop. He has the uncanny ability to lift his ears up and back which I hear the ladies love. Although small in stature, this little guy packs a big punch if you know what I mean. He loves spotted females, lanky legs and slim hind quarters. Hmmmm....sounds like another dog I know. He has a bad habit of chewing his right paw and can sometimes be heard knawing all night. This developed as an aftershock of his abandonment, but Lynn and SR do not want to remind him of that. He enjoys playing and barking with his 2 brothers, and yes, follows them with an occasional marking on the furniture. One cannot expect perfection, but he comes close. Sounds like this guy needs a hook-up. Fabulous females can e-mail this guy at

Here it is, another Friday night. And since I have zero social life, I thought it might be cute to pair up a cute couple. Although I am unlucky in love, that doesn't mean that I am not lucky at matching up compatible couples. Tell me what you think.....

~ Relaxation Techniques...~

" Atop the washer and dryer..."
" Stunning Vignette..."

" Dining Room..."

" Kitchen Nook..."

" Kitchen Nook..."

Let's continue with our journey of Lynn and SR's home....One cannot help but be relaxed as you breeze through her hallways and rooms. It literally takes your breath away, and not only because it is so fantastic, but it takes a considerable amount of time to just stop and look at everything she has collected over the years...

~ Aloha...~

" Bedroom vanity...."
" Old Door Leading into Master Bedroom..."

" Master Bathroom..."

" Bedroom Dresser....."

" Master Bedroom....."

While Lynn and SR are on their little trip to Hawaii, I decided this would be the perfect opportunity to refresh my pictures of their home. Many of you have seen these before, but she has done a little moving and tweaking of her muchly prized possessions. Hold on-this could take a blog or two...

~ Slow Sunday...~



" After..."

" Before..."

I could not help but get out a bit in today's glorious weather. I cannot help but think that summer is around the corner and I better enjoy the cooler weather while it lasts. Everything is blooming and the grass is green. Seems like it is an overnight transformation. My Cello is now coordinating better with the kitchen colors. Next week I begin my nursing refresher course so I can learn to become what I already am-a nurse. Oh well, sometimes you have to push through the red tape to get to the other side...

~ A Rainy Saturday Night...~

" Believe it or Not this is Above my Kitchen Cabinets..."
" Etsy"



Yoa!Yoa! It's Presley....."

I am enjoying the cooler air that the rain has brought-not the frizzy hair, but the cooler air. Presley the Poodle was having fun this evening trying on his new hat. Added a little more goodies to Etsy and have started painting my large Cello. Will post some pics when it is done...

~ Its All About Etsy....~

A few more Etsy surprises for this week. Waiting for a little rain to head our way. Another week has flown by and I can feel summer vacation just around the corner. Is it me or is the world situation getting crazier and crazier? Volcanoes, floods, and lets not forget the everyday earth quakes....I say enjoy the here and now because who knows what tomorrow will bring....Prayers for everyone out there involved in any of these disasters....

~ Think Spring ~

" Country Living Magazine from Living with What we Love..."

About to head out to plant some more spring flowers. As I was waiting to pick up my daughter at school I was rummaging through the new Country Living magazine. Check out the yummy mirrored vanity with all the photos on the old arched mirror. Love it!!!! I also love my new paper umbrella and my sweet pair of baby shoes that I bought on Etsy...

~ What is a Buttfreckle? ~

" Buttered Popcorn Buttfreckle..."

" More Wreaths for Etsy....."

I am always amazed at the wondrous talent out there in the universe. One such person is Bridgette of Buttfreckle on Etsy. These little guys (or girls) sell out the minute she lists them. As you can see in the photo it is no wonder why. So cute and tiny and soft. My Buttfreckle is called Buttered Popcorn. I think he qualifies to be an addition to Dream in Cream. Go check her little freckles out. They are really sweet...

~ Taking Life Easy ~

" Atop the Kitchen Cupboards..."
" Atop the Refrigerator..."

" Lovely Script..."

" Atop the Kitchen Cupboards..."

" New Etsy Listing..."

Blessed with another lovely weather day! Trimmed the hedges and swept the driveway. Surfed Ebay and listed on Etsy. Getting the decorating urge again-which is something I have neglected for weeks. Hmmmm...maybe more furniture for Lone Star, and perhaps a little revamping in the kitchen. Or maybe a good movie and a bag of chocolate Easter eggs...

~ What a Great Idea !!! ~

" Old script rolled and placed in a large shell..."
" Scraped off table with the natural color of the wood dominating the look..."

" Who says Ironstone is boring..."

" I know we have seen or done this, but I love it. Old mattress spring with photos..."

" Just listed this set in my ETSY....It is amazing!!!!..."

I am an avid magazine reader. And I love it when there are new ideas that make you say "Why didn't I think of that?" Flea Market Style is one such magazine. I have added some of their creative ideas to my blog today because I think they are inspiring and something a lot of us can do. The weather is lovely outside and the flowers are blooming. What more could one want? Maybe to win the lottery, but until that happens enjoy the day...

~ Am I Dreaming??? ~

" Did Somebody say Face lift....? "

Meet my new and awesome header....Karen Valentine at Valentine Designs had a vision....What does Dream in Cream actually look like? Well, I think she hit the nail on the head so to speak.
