Hi everyone! How many times have I wished that I lived in a perfect, idyllic setting like the one in the above picture! I do hope my heavenly home is something like that! ;) Well, Pidgie the banded pigeon is still around. I think he adopted us!

I'm a collector of pictures - graphics, clipart, that kind of stuff. I have three flash drives that I store different topics of pics on. A few days ago, the one that has all my garden photos, Africam photos, and my Blog files on it was in the slot of the hard drive. The hard drive is on the floor and I stumbled, fell against it, and bent the flash drive! Now it won't work!

I checked online with the maker of the drive and they recommend using a certain company that (very conveniently) fixes their flash drives. I looked that up and it will cost $150+ to save the info onto another drive! Ridiculous, I say! I'll have to look online for other companies that offer the same service. Wish me luck!

I was folding laundry yesterday, and when putting some dishtowels in their cupboard I decided to take a photo of my cherry towels. Here they are ~    Not enough! I need more!!

More red flowers ~

Cats really do have the best lives, don't they? Smokey, here, is lounging on her "throne"!

oh, i know what you mean about our Heavenly home! i can get to dreaming about it and i just know it's going to be so much more beautiful than we can even attempt to imagine! i LOVE your picture!

sooooooooo sorry bout your USB drive! i would be heartbroken! i also am a collector of pictures, graphics, etc - mine mostly being in paper form - but i have lots on the computer as well, AND i've lost LOTS of my pics when my last computer died, so i know how upsetting it can be. i HOPE you can recover them!

You have a nice selection of cherry dishtowels. I do not have any of those, but do have a small table cloth with different fruits. It has several cherries scattered on it. If you would like to have it, I will send. Just let me know.

Sorry about your flash drive issues. I sympathize. Last week my USB cable shorted out and created all kinds of headaches. Good luck on getting your problems resolved without breaking the bank. Love all of your cheerful towels. Thanks for hosting!!

What a cute picture your towels made.
They are all lovely.

I asked my friend about the 4th of July tablecloth. It belonged to her daughter, and she's pretty sure it was just a piece of material that she sewed. Sorry, this didn't help much.

At first I thought your portulaca was tiny cactus flowers! I had to look twice at these lovelies, and could hardly tear my eyes away. Simply beautiful!
