Good luck with your kitchen remodel! (I only wish you were enjoying the process more, but it's certainly not for everyone.) It's funny how one little problem leads to a snowball effect and, before you know it... new appliances, cabinets, countertops, backsplash, fixtures, sink, flooring. I'm sure you'll love the updates once they're done. In the meantime, hang on and try to enjoy the ride!

Great post, Rita -- and such a great sidekick you have! Who knew blogging would transform us (and our spouses!) so completely? :-)

Rita, thanks for inviting us into your Christmas home! I especially enjoyed the variety of vignettes and textile treasures. Since we just moved, most of my own Christmas collections are packed away this year in anticipation of building. Seeing your pretties was a special treat! Merry Christmas and best wishes during this holy season.

LOVE your brown transferware, Rita! I have a few plates, but no serving pieces. Your soup tureen is especially stunning!

BTW, thanks for stopping by My Place to Yours and leaving such kind words. We're going to have a whirlwind few weeks but are excited about moving forward with our plans.

Oh, my... We've had our share of water-related construction problems over the years, and I feel your pain--and now your joy! So happy you finally found a fix. The balcony looks great.

I'm remembering the night I met Richard Simmons—and wishing him well. He hasn't been seen by his closest friends for two years! #richardsimmons #hopeunlimitedforchildren #oppositesattract

Perfect first St. Patrick's Day tablescape! I much prefer the muted colors over the traditional but garish bright greens. Although, my husband has been to Ireland and tells me the green of the countryside is almost blinding in its intensity; he's never seen a more "green" green anywhere. Maybe someday you and I will see it for ourselves. Until then, we can reminisce in stories of our Irish heritage and play in the dishes!

Beautiful post, Rita! You definitely have some wonderful treasures in those letters! I once posted about some love letters in my husband's family, but (sadly) there are none in mine. LOTS of wonderful l"everyday" letters and cards, though. In fact, before sitting down at my computer, I'd just put Valentines for the grandsons and a birthday card my SIL in the mailbox. I'm carrying on the tradition.

As for not teaching cursive writing... I knew it was a bad idea, but until +Laura Ingalls Gunn said what she did about Sweet Guy not being able to read the Declaration of Independence, it hadn't hit me as to WHY. Oh, my goodness... How tragic! I must have this discussion with my daughter!

What a perfect trip for the season! You always do such a wonderful job of "taking us along" with you as you relive your travels. Nicely done! The Great Smoky Mountains Railroad is another option for a spectacular train trip if you or your readers are interested.
