Lately, my interests seem to be directed toward "vintage".
I liked this vintage looking bag of coffee, not to mention it's good taste.
I liked this picture from a past "Country Living" magazine, because it reminds me of the way my parents would pack picnics for us, years ago, in their big, blue station wagon. Now, I am amazed when I remember back to all that they packed, in our rare, but so fun family picnics.
I've always had a thing for old barn siding. It looks especially good with the wreath of pansies.

A few days ago my dear "old" friend of 42 years, and I celebrated our birthdays together, although it was a bit early. With both of our schedules being so busy, we were happy to find time to just sit and share with each other. My friend and I have known each other for many years, 42 to be exact. Our youngest daughters are best friends too. Pictured above, in the collage created by my youngest daughter, from left to right, is me, my dear friend, her daughter (who is getting married in June), and my youngest daughter who is honored to be in her wedding. What a special gift this friendship is for each one of us.
As you can tell, this friend certainly does not fit the "vintage" category of this blog theme. She continues to age beautifully!
