Really fun finds!!!!

Last Wednesday Little Companion and I went to the library as we are oft wont to do of a Wednesday afternoon to return her 5 books and check out 5 more. Well, we stopped in the area where they have used books to buy, actually looking for tea books, etc., and we ran across these.

Which I thought looked really interesting for the maps, background and... really pretty pictures.

Thought they might be good resource books.

So we bought them and toted them back to our abode.

They make great coffee/tea table books. Little Companion loves looking through them. She showed me the old money and what was really fun was when she came upon picture of the Red Sea she told me Moses, and here she held her hands up and parted them like she was parting the sea. I was very impressed.

Next, I found this cool purple chair and ottoman. They are very comfortable and go so well under this Monet, it has purple in it too.

I like the look.

Lastly, this one is for Steve. (Told him I was gonna do this.) I used the aromatherapy lab (i.e. kitchen) to chef up a pizza casserole that Theresa at http://theresa-sentimentaljourney.blogspot shared on her Oct. 6 post. It turned out sooooo good. We had plenty of left overs.

I know that Steve and the Big Kahuna are eating healthy, well balanced, appetizing dinners over there in Oklahoma, just thought he might like the picture.

Ha! Miss you Steve, wish you were here!

Hi, Valerie,
You and your little companion found some great books! I love how she parted the Red Sea like Moses. I bet she has seen the Ten Commandments movie, too. Your purple chair and ottoman really bring out the purple in the Monet. The casserole looks yummy!! Hope you have a terrific and fun filled weekend! Vicki

Mmm, that looks good! And great finds on those books. I think my little guy would enjoy the Atlas of the Bible too. Hope you're having a great weekend!
