This is in a little community where all the houses have been turned into shops. This is an old Victorian house that has a variety of decorations you can buy as well as dishes and collectibles and knick knacks...I love this store.....not the least being is that I would not want to dust this place AND I am not a collectible kind of gal!! Just looks nice somewhere else!

This is a backyard near where we live....It is in a "senior living community"(no one under 50 can buy a home/townhome there). I have to say, I would LOVE to have this kind of fireplace in my back yard......but I am not sure how much I would use it in reality!

I know I have shown my nephews before, but I could not resist this photo of my nephew and his son, my great nephew(remember Teddy, it's my most FAVORITE great aunt Neva).
Thanks to Denise for hosting ABC Wednesday. Stop by and see everyone's choices!

I went down to Champagne, Illinois for their Homecoming game against Minnesota...Most of you know I am not a football fan.....I usually go down to see my daughter who was in school there. However, she has graduated and not there now (she is still in Costa Rica) but I went anyway with a friend who had an extra ticket....
When I can tell it is a bad game....then it must be horrible. The Illini lost 20 to 27 and played pretty dismally.....As we were leaving, the beautiful trees as they are changing colors just looked wonderful against all the orange of the fans shirts. They have just finished remodeling the stadium with something like skyboxes...I don't really remember what they are called...which is why the construction fences are still up. And, yes, I also had orange on...it is one of the colors I like, fortunately!

When I was a kid, we had a chair like these that we all loved to sit in...It was a great chair for reading. A fabulous lounge chair......while we were out looking at model homes, I saw this and just loved it....to enjoy all the ABC participants hosted by Denise go here.

My husband and I were out looking at model homes trying to get ideas for redecorating. We found some of the funniest things that people have done. This was pretty funny to us. A chess board in your driveway......I wonder how you put the car in the garage when the chess set is up? And they were not that light to move...guess they didn't want the wind to blow them over!
