Where are we now?

Let me give you a hint!

We see this from a window...


and have these on the windowsill in the kitchen....


and spend time in my favorite room in the house!


YES....we are in Florida for the winter! YAY!!!


It's about like moving when we pack to come so I've been super busy the past week!

I hope to visit with everyone soon!


Thanks for the wonderful comments and emails. What a treat to finally sit down at the computer and read all the little notes from my girlfriends. It really is what I love about blogging!

Enjoy your day....and your week! Write me ONE little news item in your comment so that I can get caught up! What have I missed? What's new with YOU ?   island

I'm sure you're happy to be back in Florida for the winter! Sure wish I was there! :o)

My news item: I sold 10 bags at the Craft Fair over the weekend, but the smaller items didn't go over very well! But I'm happy I sold anything as not many vendors were!

Glad you made it home safely. We are heading to Naples, Fl this month for a few days...looking forward to putting my toes in the sand.

Glad you have some sunshine to enjoy. Many of my relatives have been migrating to FL, too. They winter in Palm Beach and St Augustine.

Donnie said...

Same as you, catching up with winter friends and going back to restaurants we have missed. Looking forward to meeting again down here. Take care.

Early this AM we had a little s..n..o..w that melted quickly. :) Sunshine sounds so good!

I also find that I learn so many new things from my blogging buddies. This past week I found a quilt made in the Cathedral Window pattern. Hoping the pattern is not too difficult.

so nice to be in a tropical location for the winter. :) we had some pretty hot temps (98 degrees) last week but finally it's cool again.

Dianne said...

Glad you're back...

Hi Diane,

How wonderful that you will be able to enjoy the warm weather down in Florida.
Enjoy, I see you have a nice cool drink on the table.

Happy week

Joy said...

I would love to have a sunroom like that! Well maybe one of these days! Have a great week.

Well, dear friend, I am so far behind in visiting that it is pathetic!
You pretty much know what I am doing by my latest post.
You like children's books? Me too!
I had so many that I began to give them away to tiny great granddaughter!
I think I will keep this one!
You sound so pleased to be back in Florida!
I remember Jacksonville getting down to 18 degree's in the was really cold..but I am thinking you are at the southern end of Florida which is probably much warmer.
We can both catch up. :)

Hello Diane! Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog, it's nice to "see" you again!
Looking forward to reading your adventures in Florida by now!

So glad to hear you made it safely to Florida Diane. Welcome to the cool weather. It was 49 yesterday morning on our lanai in Ft. Myers.

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment and best of all, following along. I really, really appreciate it.

Diane said...

This is paradise to me!! Enjoy!

Tammy said...

Oh I love FL! Not far from you, Southwest GA.
Thanks for leaving a comment today. I know exactly what you mean. Tops of cabinets are a pain! Nothing looks bare to me but I don't like a lot of clutter either. Very difficult to get it looking right.
Have fun at your FL getaway home!

Florida, sounds good about now. It's getting colder here by the day. We even had sleet the other night. I love your decorations. How lucky are you that you get to be a SNOW BIRD!

Hi...I found your blog because you commented over a Janet's blog. I love your Florida home! I am becoming crazy for quilts but I'm trying to hold myself in check. Love what I've seen on you blog so far.

Welcome back to Paradise. Last January it was pretty cold here (So. FL) 29 degrees with windchill teens. Not pretty. I just got back from the Houston International Quilt/Doll show and it was more fabulous than words. The show and the vendors, the free lectures, the ambiance. . . it was so wonderful. It was my first time, it will not be my last. We had a bit of a side trip to New Orleans. . . I had not been there before either. Needless to say, the quilt shop hops (2 up and 2 back) were amazing. In Trenton, FL there will be a quilt show around the town, as they do it in Sisters, OR - we will be back the second weekend in March. Blessings, Janet

Welcome back! It's taken me a while to come visit and catch up. Yes, I think it would be fun to meet up! I am currently hibernating at home as much as possible while I go through a treatment for skin cancer. My face is a raw mess! Perhaps after the holidays? Loved seeing how you are already venturing out on some fun outings and doing some great sewing.
