Friday Fun

Welcome! - Posting today for several Memes. - Click to Enlarge Photos.


A plain board fence that caught my eye.


1.  Did some baking again recently.  This time it was Blackberry Pie Bars.
Oh so yummy!  Recipe found here on The Novice Chef.

2.  Spotted this on a recent walk

Are you in the mood for fall & Halloween Decor yet? - I'm getting there.

3.  Spotted this while out on a drive:

That's one "wild paint job!"

4.  Spotted this on another drive around town:

How cool is that! - Took a close-up and used for my 52 Frames photo for the week Unexplored.  You can see the album here:  This was the photo I used for that week:

Edited to include this shot for Orange You Glad It's Friday.

5.  I love coffee mugs of all kinds.  - I spotted an owl mug recently and had to buy it.  Then I realized that they had several different mugs so I went back and bought one for my hubby, one for my daughter, Greta & one for my granddaughter, Coleen.  They are pictured below.  See if you can figure out which one is my mug.  Make a guess....

Now if you want to know...From Left to Right - My Mug is the one on the left, then Greta's is next, Coleen's is the Red Mug and Mike's is the one on the far right.  - They make me smile!

Finally For FELINE FRIDAY - Hosted for awhile on Comedy Plus.

It's Callie-Jo taking a rest on my purse.  - By the way Callie-Jo has recovered completly from whatever ailment she had a few weeks ago.  That makes us all very happy!


  1. Callie is so pretty. I would have swooned over the owl mugs! You find the best stuff on your adventures around town: the orange bike and flower basket are great. the blackberry bars look delish. Have a great week!

  2. Lovely old fence and true quote. And: wow, these adorable mugs!
    Callie-Jo is a very unique beauty, glad, that's over (when I want here for a visit, I've seen your posts in emails).
    I remember about 52Frames as an earlier blogger-linkparty, but since it is on facebook, it doesn't working for me and they don't show me the album :(
    Have always liked to playing with...
    Enjoy your weekend

  26. Callie-Jo looks so cute resting on your purse!

  27. I love your mugs, Ida. I was in a hotel last weekend where they kept serving weak tea in too-small cups. I'd have given anything for a nice strong teabag tea in one of your mugs.
    So glad that your beautiful kitty has made a good recovery. She's gorgeous.

  28. Love the quote on the fence and the orange bike! The Blackberry Pie Bar looks yummy! Callie-Jo is gorgeous! Glad she's feeling better!

  29. You see, I would have picked out the red one for you! I too love mugs - and sell them on Then one day I thought, why not buy them myself, as some of them have my pet's pictures on them - which I did, and they became my very favorite mugs!
