So Shabby Pink -

We have some new pictures in stock. We aready carry a nice selection of Paul De Longpre and Catherine Klein yard long prints but found these really pretty Catherine Klein rose prints. The backgrounds are printed like "crazing" you see in old dishes to give them more of a vintage look.

You can see them on our website by clicking here.

Hope all are having a nice week.

So Shabby Pink - Panaramic View of Sandbridge, VA

Click on picture to enlarge

Well, this was fun! I took a series of pictures on our Virginia Beach trip to try and create a panaramic view from the condo balcony where our family was staying. This is about the best I could do quickly this morning.

My husband and I stayed there a week with my sister and her husband from outside of Atlanta, GA and my 92 year old (and wonderful) Father and his wife.

Make sure you CLICK on the PICTURE to see it enlarged.

Good morning on this fine Saturday in February. It's 58 degrees and humid outside. So, what are your plans for the weekend?

So Shabby Pink - Valentine's Day Came Early!

Wow. I didn't expect this one.......... My husband managed to surprise me for Valentine's Day! On Valentine's Day, I usually expect him to come through the back door a little later than usual after work with roses in one hand and candy or a cake in the other. He will have this big wide smile and pretend that he is surprising me! We laugh about it and I also pretend I had no idea!! Then we laugh some more. :-)

Well, tonight the doorbell rang around 6:30 pm and the UPS man delivered some packages I had been expecting. That's says "Pro Flowers." Huuh? So, I proceeded to cut the box open. My gosh! There were a dozen roses, a pretty clear glass square vase and a box of fine chocolates in there!

I RAN into the back room and he is on the phone! Ah! He is REALLY trying to act like he doesn't know where they came from! What a funny goof ball! HE SURPRISED ME!!! ROSES by UPS!! They are a little early but I am grateful for this man! He never ceases to amaze me. Thank you God, for this man.

Happy Valentine's Day!

So Shabby Pink - Good Exercise

We all know that exercise is important but my husband takes it very seriously! After a few heart procedures, he makes sure he gets the exercise that is fitting for his body.

On October 5, 2007, at 1:30 pm, he accomplished a personal goal he had set back when he started measuring and recording his mileage per day. He wears his little wrist GPS and measures the distance, pace and time of his walk. He is one of the most disciplined persons I have ever known.

This is the pretty little park close to our home where he walks many days each week.

This is Bob. He works for the city and chases my husband around the park. He is so funny...

Bob: "Richard....where are you? I am for you looking!"
Where is he? Can you see him?

Hey! Here he comes! I see him!

Almost there! Go! Go! Go!

He did it! 10,000 miles!!!!!!
So, in honor of his huge accomplishment, we decided to have a little party!
Congratulations, my dear husband. I am proud of you!
