Are you blue? Try yellow and blue.

It's been hot and humid.  I love the combination of the yellow and blue.It  makes me  smile and glad that I am here despite the way the world is going.  enjoy it now. Everything here are my thrifting buys.I got to see my new great grandson for the first time.  He is only six months old but so smart and cute . I got to hold him and had our picture took.
Sorry about big space .  Didn't know how to change it.
Thanks Susan

Found the flower dishes and the place mats.  The corning dinner plate I have had for ages.It is too hot so didn't hunt for napkin rings just placed little flower instead.

What an angry looking rooster I guess he doesn't approve of the little ones getting all the attention. Bad bird lol.  I don't know why all the holes on him.  My guess is toothpicks for olives etc. If you know let me know.

These are the other two plates I got.  The birds are looking things over.

The sun was shining through the deck so pictures not so great. I am having trouble with my computer so hurrying before it goes caput.

Had corning dishes in basement for many years who knew I would be using them on a tablescape. 

Flower pot came with mother's day plant.  Pulled apart some fake ones to make blue  and yellow center piece.

I had a yummy lunch alone.  No one showed up.  oh I for got to invite anyone lol. Sweetcorn I cooked the corn in the shuck in my micro wave for 5 minutes.  Sweet and juicy. Tossed salad with melon and feta cheese no dressing as the fruit gives it a sweet flavor.

Chicken sandwiches on wheat bread.  I try to eat healthy.

I love strawberries with just a little sweetener.

Just a little thirst quencher crystal lite.

Reversible place mats from thrift store.

Left a little vignette to enjoy for dinner later.

whoopee I can at last eat on the deck in comfort.  It has been quite hot but there is a breeze that wafts its way through my deck.The trees look like dancers swaying to sound of the wind. I start to think of fairies and pretty butterflies.  When I am alone and just a little blue I think yellow and blue and put on a happy face. I just got the roosters and chickens and place mats at my thrift store.So this  is my inspiration.

Hi, Vernice! I don't recall ever being out here in this area for a post. This is wonderful! You have a great deal of space to work with!!! You got some really cute thrift finds that go so well together! It reminds me of a bed-and-breakfast setting! I'm guessing the same as you on the angry rooster...the holes are probably for toothpicks. PRETTY placemats!!!

Congratulations on getting to see your new grandson and hold him for the first time! I know that must have been a wonderful feeling! They are so precious when they're so tiny like that!!! I only have one granddaughter, and she is so big now. We're going to her 9th birthday party this afternoon.

You really DO eat healthy!!! I could learn a thing or two from you on that one! I am the world's worst when it comes to eating!!! I used to be so disciplined when I was cooking just for me, but since Ramon & I got married I have to cook what he likes which means I'm tempted!!! I like the idea of doing the corn in the microwave. I've never tried that before. I have a couple of ears of corn in the fridge. I'll give it a try for tomorrow's dinner.

Well, I suppose I should go get ready for this party. We'll have to stop to pick up a card. Just money in the card...I have no idea what to buy a 9-year-old these days. She never has liked dolls or Easy Bake ovens or any of the kind of stuff I played with as a child, so I'm stumped! Have a great weekend!!!!!!
