My New Ornate Mirror

This is my newest addiction,  to my never ending quest of finding the perfect look for whatever area of my home I am interested at the time!  This time was the dining room.  I wanted a dramatic look over the buffet and had tried several looks.  I had even purchased a mirror and still it was not the look I wanted so I thought,  I will just have to wait!  
 One day I thought, go by one of your favorite shops Betty, I truthfully had not been out and about for awhile.  
I went in and was talking to Ms. Vicki, that is what my daughter has always called her.  She has such a beautiful collection of antiques  and items that she decorates so beautifully.  As we were walking through, I spotted this huge ornate mirror and asked if she was selling it. She said I was really planning on painting it because of the gold look on it!  I told her NO...I want it that way. That is what I have been looking for. WAS THAT LOOK,,,SO NEEDLESS TO SAY I OR SHE LOADED THIS HUGE MIRROR IN MY SUV AND I BROUGHT IT HOME.  IT DID TAKE ME A FEW DAY'S WAITING ON SOMEONE ELSE TO HELP UNLOAD IT....NEVER HAPPENED SO, ONE DAY I GO OUT AND LOOK IT AND DETERMINED I CARRY IT INTO THE HOUSE STOPPING ONLY 3 TIMES.  I GET IT TO THE DINING ROOM AND LEAN IT AGAINST THE WALL AND CALL IT GOOD FOR NOW.  
THEN I LOOKED AT THE BACK OF IT AND SOMEONE IN THE PAST HAD HUNG IT WITH WIRE?  THEN I LOOKED AT THE HOOKS AND THOUGHT THEM TO BE SOUND IF HUNG CORRECTLY SO, I MEASURE AND INSTALL THE BOLTS IN THE WALL AND THEN,  I HAVE TO WAIT BECAUSE, THERE IS NO WAY, I CAN LIFT THIS MIRROR TO HANG IT!   FINALLY....MY DAUGHTER WAS HERE AND I ASK HER IF SHE THOUGHT WE COULD DO IT? 
WELL...HERE IT IS...AND I LOVE IT AND SO WANT TO ENJOY DECORATING WITH IT FOR ALL SEASONS.


CHRISTMAS DECOR  ON THE WAY....

THE CAVERN'S

I said I would show you the Cavern's...Hope you are ready!

  •  This is the view before, you get to the path to go down!
It get's to me every time I get to this point!!!! 

..
I'm not sure I want to do this!

 OK....Not so bad, Flowstone feature
 You expect me to go through that?
Narrow passage
Lion's tail  Ok?
 Another one of those narrow passage's !
I don't like close places!
 Speleothems with Stalactites and Stalagmites
 I know I have seen this in a movie?
Hope they took all the strange creatures with them?
 I am thinking..this is not so scary
 Now, this gives you cold chill's
 Kind of spooky...Mossy path
 OK..I am ready to get out of here!
 Which way to the exit?
Stalagmites..very Big one's

 Whew...I made it OUT
Sorry, I had to use pictures from the Caverns's site

You know how I remember the names?
Stalactites are holding on and hope to stay up above.
Stalagmites, might make it to the top.
Just something I made up for me to remember which was which!


 I also taught this to the 30 Brownies that,  I was the troop leader for and took them on a trip through the cavern's after, they won 1st. place for their float in the Christmas parade along with my daughter, who 
was a member of the troop but, was in leg braces all through grade school.  They did make special arrangements for her to ride the elevator down and join us in the Big Room...

HAPPY FALL TO YOU'ALL

I Need A New Camera!

I have been working on my camera's...like I know how!  But, I thought they were both good camera's...one (Kodak P850) with all the different lens attachments, will not accept the battery as being charged, I guess!  The other is a (Canon SX120IS) that keeps telling me a lens error, restart the camera! I can't get them to work!!!!!  Of course,  I have a couple of great antique camera's that would probably do wonders for my pictures if,  I knew how to use all the parts and then get the pictures developed and scan them in to the computer and so on...........Not........
Here, I was ready to start blogging more and this happens!
So, I will be off to the store to seek out a great camera that does all the things I need for Blogging...without any knowledge and all by myself   So,  I have a mission...........any suggestions?

Wish Me Luck!

Well, here goes...My 1st. Blog!
Liz with "Infuse with Liz" a wonderful online friend,  had been after me to do this for a while but, I didn't know if I could do it the way I envisioned. I think she called in back-up and here I am! Thanks to a very sweet and helpful Linda from: 
"Life and Linda",  I decided to be brave and do it!
I will probably make mistakes or forget something but hey....I will get there!  Thank you all!
