Thin Black Line.

As much as I love white, I love a touch of black even more with it. Enjoy, Heidi

Carla Jean, I have been wanting you to see this, I bet you could sell a few dozen at the Round Top show. Paint them in all colors, it looks very bandana, cowboy chic.

I found my Dream House in Stirling.

Only if it were on the market and only if my wheat penny collection was all the right ones making me a millionaire. Oh well, it's still a good dream. Maybe one day I can at least get to redecorate it, I'll be happy with that much. Thinking of You, Millie. Love, Heidi

You're not having a hot flash, you're in Texas.

You Know You Are In Texas If. . .




  • The birds have to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground.


  • The trees are whistling for the dogs.


  • The best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance.


  • Hot water now comes out of both taps.


  • You can make sun tea instantly.


  • You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.


  • The temperature drops below 95 and you feel a little chilly.


  • You discover that in July it only takes 2 fingers to steer your car.


  • You discover that you can get sunburned through your car window.


  • You actually burn your hand opening the car door.


  • You break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30 a.m.


  • Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is, "What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death?"


  • You realize that asphalt has a liquid state.


  • The potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull one out and add butter, salt and pepper.


  • Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs.

  • The cows are giving evaporated milk.


To my Aussie friends this may apply to you as well. Heidi

She sells sea shells on her web site.

I can't seem to shake the beach theme, maybe it has something to do with daydreaming about my Beach House. Remember, it doesn't cost a cent to dream. Enjoy, Heidi

It's a Summer Night Party in my Secret Garden.

Summer Party anyone?

You are all invited to my imaginary summer party tonight and
every night this week, in case you missed tonight.

There will be fruity frozen drinks, lanterns of coarse, all of the flowers in the garden are blooming and the sun is just setting. The pool is perfect for dipping in toes and for anyone who has the courage to jump in. The Ipod is playing my Favorites Playlist and there is a mouth watering spread of fruits, dips and hors d' oeuvres on a most beautifully decorated, candle lit buffet. Help yourself and enjoy, Heidi

Dream Beach House.

I ran away this past weekend with my husband and little boy and we went to the beach. The town we stay in has this most fabulous house in the center of it, so I did a drive-by, I couldn't resist. Enjoy, Heidi

The big door is for the boat. I love this house.
