This is no special reason for this post. I just started clicking away trying out my new camera.




Aren't they just the cutest little things you've ever seen? It's hard for me to imagine these are my babies taken almost 30 years ago! That was then.....
....this is my daughter's wedding picture from 1997. I just gotta say it - she's so beautiful. She is now the mother of 3 year old twins and still looks this good!
Handsome son (taken at MIL's in about 1993) He is still a hunk (I love you sweetie and miss you) My grandfather's diploma. He was born in 1882 in Mecklenburg County, N.C. He counts among his ancestor Billy Graham (the minister) and Elizabeth Dole. Elizabeth's grandfather and my mom's grandmother were brother and sister! My mom says she remembers visiting her Uncle Pink (Elizabether's grandfather) when Elizabeth was very young and Uncle Pink saying "that's my little granddaughter playing over there."
Next project is my home office which now serves as grandchildren's room, my office and junk room! The walls are chocolate brown, I have a leopard border area rug, small black sideboard and I'm adding the green plate for color. I have a bookcase I'll be refinishing and painting black. It's kinda messy now but I know ya'll will understand!
I have this print in my office (I love this frame). I have another picture in a frame like this but I don't like the pic at all so I'm going to try and find something else (hopefully another bunny-inspired one) for the other frame. (Wall color not true - it's darker than this)When I got remarried 4 1/2 years ago, we took my kids and their spouses to the beach for beach pics (it's kind of a Southern thing with white and khaki clothes). This was so much nicer for us rather than have a "wedding album" for 2nd marriage. The photographer also developed some in black and white and they are so pretty. Oh, that's me on the far right (looks like I'm falling off the rock). These were taken in Fairhope, Alabama - a quaint and charming town. I picked up this tray table at a little out-of-the-way shop for about $14.00! I can always take the tray off the base - I collect trays like this. This tray sits on my leather ottoman in the den. I'm loving that green color! That's all folks!

Good Morning Judy,
I love the pictures of your Grown Children. They are beautiful. "THANK YOU" for sharing them with us. I still wish I looked as good as I did the day me and my DH got married. LOL. I love the picture of everyone at the beach and dressed in all white. I have seen those kind before and I think they are just beautiful. I love your tray as well. I thought for a minute that was realy limes. LOL. I had to look twice. I love the leopred print as well. I just wanted to let you know that when you had time, to stop by. I have something for you on my today's post. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Hugs,
Karen H.

These are great pictures...I really like the tray table. I saw one at a garage sale a few years back and just stood there looking at it. A lady inched by me, picked it up and paid for it before I could turn around twice. I've not seen one since!! SHOOT
hugs, bj

Hey, Judy, fun pics! I love those family white beach pics. I have seen so many people to those, but they really do look great. We were at the beach last May one day at sunset & there were lots of people taking pics like that.

You know I love the bunny pic & the lime green things! Fun to finally see a pic of you...you're very pretty.

xo,
Rhoda
