Re: I wish I had more of this in my life..

In Kitchen & Food Talk 1398285809.637

I know what you mean. I long for it sometimes, too. Friends I made while I working were just that. People I knew at the office, but did not socialize with. Plus, most lived 50 or 60 miles from me which is not conducive to just stopping by on a whim. My mother had a friend that she shared coffee with most mornings (they did call ahead) when she was not working. I have no idea what they chatted about, but it was a lifelong and easy friendship that sometimes extended to our families getting together. Four of her friends also used to gather every couple of months and play canasta, have shri... Continue Reading

 

Re: "Extreme Couponing"

In Viewpoints 1397767070.74

I watched one time and there was something stomach churning about the whole process. The folks that night showed how they stored their stash and there was no mention of donating...only glee at how much "stuff" they were amassing. Maybe some do donate, and that's fine. But these particular people just wanted it for themselves. One person had expanded her storage to accommodate all the things she got. I'm all for people saving a few dollars, but this behavior seems one step away from hoarders and the things they couponed a lot of processed foods and junk foods, candy and soda. The whole thin...

Love it when Mrs. D breaks off the hood ornament of Pierce's car and says she found it in the street. Such a delightful, funny movie! Continue Reading

 

Re: And they wonder why the malls are dying

In Beauty Banter 1397669354.553

I would rather chew my arm off than go into a mall. I live in the Maryland/DC/Virginia area and there are numerous of malls within 30 miles of my home. I don't go to any of them any more for a variety of reasons. The last time I went to a Mall I noticed one thing...the noise! It was deafening and distracting. There were groups of ill-behaved people roaming the floors and stores acting like fools and causing chaos in any way possible. I fault the stores for not providing proper training and/or incentives to attract decent help. I can only assume they do not value my business, or the busin... Continue Reading

 

Re: Those shoes!

One of my favorite Eagle songs! "Those Shoes" Tell us what you're gonna do tonight, mama. There must be someplace you can go In the middle of the tall drinks and the drama, there must be someone you know. God knows, you're lookin' good enough, but you're so smooth and the world's so rough. You might have somethin' to loose. Oh, no, pretty mama, what you gonna do in those shoes? Got those pretty little straps around your ankles Got those shiny little chains around your heart. You go to have your independence but you don't know just where to start. Desperation in the singles bars an' all... Continue Reading

Re: NeNe Leeks of the Housewives coming to HSN with clothing line.....

In Fashion Talk 1396958447.297

Not a fan of any of the RH shows and have only seen her in passing, so I don't know her background be it stripper or ditch digger. However, what I AM tired of is the transition from "reality" shows to "designers" or pushers of products on shopping channels. Thankfully, I can tune them out and have. On the other hand, you cannot blame these personalities from taking advantage of making a fast buck when the opportunity presents itself. If there is no market for her stuff, she won't be there long. The whole idea is a real turn off and tune out for me. Continue Reading

 

Re: For Those That Have The Lenox Butterfly Meadow Dishes-Have A Question

In For the Home Talk 1396875738.03

I have the set, but do not remember if the bowls came boxed. I agree with poster violann. Mine are not stored in their boxes as I rotate them in and out of my corner china cabinet. Little things like this can annoy me to no end, but if you love the set, I'd just get some felt circles to set between the bowls and store them that way. Can you check another local store to see if they are boxed? Whatever the outcome, I say if you love the set/pattern, just get the bowls and find a safe way to store them. I ended up buying the tablecloth to match and it is a beautiful, too! Continue Reading

 

Re: Lenox

In For the Home Talk 1396436660.737

I adore china and table linens and have a terrible weakness for beautiful, colorful items. I love April Cornel linens and have a nice variety which I use now and then as I just don't entertain like I used to. A few years back I bought a small set of Lenox Butterfly Meadow. It is just so delightful in the Spring and Summer! I also bought Winter Greetings and the dishes with a green band and red Cardinal (the name escapes me). I alternate them in my corner china cabinet and use them for special dinners. Just looking at them makes me happy! Years ago before silver flatware was so pricey, I ... Continue Reading

 

Re: Ideas for porch decor

In For the Home Talk 1396372965.917

I love all your ideas and whitelinen, those ferns are just stunning as is your porch! Being in the woods, it is so hard keeping things clean. That white porch is lovely, but it would be a second job keeping it white. Fortunately, I'm dealing with brick, so, not much maintenance. Love the idea of lanterns or birdcages too. Considered the idea of lighted, hanging baskets, but I know they will have things nesting in them, so I'm concerned about that. It would be lovely, but....we are back in the woods and every kind of bird and bug is always looking for a home! Thanks for your responses. G... Continue Reading
