Catching Up & Thanks!

Let me start by thanking you for your kindness in sending prayers
and positive thoughts for my Mom.  She is not going to get well, but
I believe all the prayers offered for her will help with her journey ahead. 
The angels (aka Hospice workers) are lovingly assisting with her care.
We spent lots of quality time with Mom while I was visiting.

We even celebrated her birthday with the rest of the family.  Mom loved
 being the center of attention and it was a very good day for all of us. 

 I know what you are thinking, but no, I did not travel with a vintage
 tablecloth.  It belongs to my sister.  But I will fess up to the fact
 that it was a gift from me to her a couple years ago.

This is Josie, my sister's rescued poodle.  Just had to show her off. 
 Her personality is as cute as she is.  I missed my Doyle,
 so it was nice to have a cutie to snuggle.

We did make it to my fav shop where I found this vintage
souvenir apron, stamped Lake George, NY at the bottom.  It is in
pristine condition.  Either someone brought it home back in the 50's and
never used it, or someone received it as a gift and never used it. 

Just love these corny and fun graphics!

I wanted to share this cool cowboy themed lamp.  I know Mr. Retro
would have loved it, but unfortunately fortunately I was traveling by train
and therefore had to leave it.  Priced $38, which I thought reasonable. 

I case you were eyeing up my tablecloth, it is a Wilendur,
with a gorgeous lilac pattern.
I have done some visiting, but not much.  Forgive me for not commenting.
I will be catching up with all of you soon.  Thanks again for your
kind thoughts and prayers. 
Hugs & Kisses, Pam


  1. I'm glad your mother is receiving wonderful hospice care. My friend Linda did too, and it made it easier knowing how dedicated the hospice caregivers were.

    Love the vintage apron and your lilac tablecloth!

  2. I'm glad the time went well with your mother. Hospice is wonderful when they are needed. Love your new additions.

  3. I'm happy to hear you had a nice visit with your mom. Hospice is the best! My sister is a Hospice nurse and is covers in home visits in our county. They are such a wonderful organization and so helpful during a difficult time for families. The tablecloths are just always! That is a cool lamp....too bad you couldn't get it for your hubby. I bet he was just glad to get you back though! :)

  4. Sending prayers of peace for you, your mom, and the rest of your family.

  5. Pam, don't worry about catching up. It's hard when we've been away. I'm glad you got a good visit with your Mom. Hospice is such a blessing and really helps, they did with my Dad. Sending hugs,
