Pretty Waterfall at the O.K. Corral

I took a really fun trip last summer to Grants Pass, Oregon. I took my daughter and granddaughter and her friend on a road trip to get out of town and have some fun before summer was over.
This was also part of a trip to take the girls to Bible Camp in Glendale, Oregon.
We stayed in a nice hotel overlooking the Rogue River. In the morning we got up and went on a Jet Boat cruise down the river and had lunch at a beautiful restaurant called the O.K. Corral.
We saw some beautiful scenery and so much wildlife.
If you are looking for a fun....this is it! It was the most fun I had all summer and I will never forget that trip!

Pretty Vintage Inspired Office

Photo From

I love so many styles of decor from vintage to modern. This scene has me inspired to make do with things I already have and to put them to their best use in a new way! It's hard to pin myself down to one style that fits "me". I really enjoy hints of shabby chic and
simple country style. I'm not a formal, traditional kind of girl!
One day I will love all the pink ,white and fluffy and on another I will like oranges, greens and rustic black painted furniture! I'm very eclectic! I'm just sharing the things that I find pretty.....on any particular day.
I hope you like it too!

Some Like It Hot and Some Like It Pretty!

This is the first post for my third and newest blog! I have 2 other blogs, here and here but I needed another one to satisfy my need for pretty things!

I'm a stay at home Mom and Grandma who sells vintage costume jewelry on etsy and eBay. I also provide daycare for my 3 grandkids a few days a week. I have 3 children and I've been married for 22 years to my childhood sweetheart.

Times are tough right now for a lot of people including our family with layoffs, cost of living, etc. I love searching the internet and finding things that make my day a little brighter like a pretty photo or a nice, uplifting story. I want to share a few of the things I've found with you!

My goal for this blog is to find something pretty everyday! It may be just a photo, pretty home decor, someone's blog post, a poem, a recipe, a craft project, a cute shop, or ? It could be almost anything but it has to be pretty! Please come back everyday to see what
's next!
