Snippets In Time


I hope that none of you were in the path of Hurricane Harvey. The weather says there will be rain for days. So the worst is probably not over.


I have just taken some photos around my apartment. There is no rhyme or reason for them. Just snippets in time.


I always love to rescue old photos at antique malls. I don't know whose kin they are. But I will gladly add them to my little family.


I cut back many of the petunias on the patio yesterday. They were drooping sadly and I didn't think they could be resurrected. Sad to see them go. But they are annuals, only meant for a season.


I always love my one morning cup of coffee. I add Coffee Mate and a little bit of sugar, then sit down and sip it while I read email.


Charlie on the patio staring at me yesterday. I love how straight his ears stand up. My little lovey boy!

Happy Sunday, wherever you are!

  2. I love that cup with the red lips!
    It makes me smile whenever you show it.
    I found a lovely old quilt yesterday, there's a local church that runs a kind of rummage sale ( not sure how to describe it,a clothing bank) 3x a week,everything is free and there's household stuff too,anyway it was shoved in a box,so I rehomed it!
    Thought of you,I think I'll use it as a table covering.
    Have a blessed Sunday.

    1. Good for you on scoring the quilt! I do love that cup with the red lips and kind of wish I'd gotten the male while my grocery was selling it. Oh well.

  3. Charlie is so sweet! That is a beautiful photo. I love all of the snippets of your life. Such a beautiful and collected life.

    I am so very sorry for all of those in the path of the storm. Having lived through a few I can speak from experience and tell you that is is nerve wracking, scary and a huge pain to clean up from.

    Have a beautiful day!

    1. I guess our lives are beautiful and collected. Who would really want to let everything go and start over? Our older pieces have memories attached.

  4. I love old photos, too. I hung some big, old black and white portraits in our vacation rentals. Somehow they make it feel like a family home. The frames are pretty great, too.

  6. I love the way you are displaying the photos Brenda. This is a great idea, you can then just rearrange them to see the ones behind. I am still struggling to fit everything in to a smaller house, am waiting for the painter to come and paint the living and dining room before I can get them straight. I have ordered a new sofa but it won't be here until October! I have fetched the garden chairs in to use for now and are using a very old sewing table for dining which I bought from Ikea years ago. We sold our old dining table and sofa set as they would have been far too large for this house. I am sure it will look okay once we are settled but it certainly takes time.

    1. What color is your new sofa? I guess if you're having to wait for so long it must be pretty special!

  10. The old photos in antique malls always make me sad that someone threw away their relatives and their roots. The quilt in the second photo is my favorite! Good Dog Charlie--always on duty. (woof!)

  12. I look forward to my one cup of coffee also. My Houston family is flooding but so far safe. It is doing so much damage in Texas!

  13. Lovely! Your "snippets in time" give me a sense of a life of contentment, simplicity, serenity.

  14. I always look forward to my one cup of coffee every morning too. 😃 It's been so sad to see the extreme flooding going on in TX. Did you live in that part before you moved to OK?

    1. No, I lived in Tyler. Four hours from Houston. Ninety minutes from Dallas.

  15. I've been watching the coverage on Harvey off an on all day / your Snippets in Time remind one of how blessed normal life is. I just saw someone post on my FB feed a woman desperately seeking rescue / she's on her roof with 5 little kids

    1. I'm watching too. I feel so bad for them. They don't know what's going to happen, what's going to happen when, or some when they'll get another hot meal.

  16. I have never been in a natural disaster like the hurricane that's creating such havoc in Texas. It must be just so terrifying and awful. I can't imagine being on the roof of my house with my five little children! I hope they are rescued very very soon.

    I like your "snippets in time" concept. I was thinking that really snippets in time are all we have--it's what life is made up of, don't you think? We must remember to enjoy those snippets and not waste time waiting for something big to happen.

    Charlie is such a dear. Such an earnest look on his little face in your photo. I'd never doubt that he would come to your rescue in a crisis, as small as he is. Our four-leggeds are so precious, aren't they? They are so dependent on us, yet give us so much comfort and lovein return for their care. I lived a whole year without an animal in my home and it felt so empty. I hope I never have to move somewhere that I can't have a pet.

  17. Again, lovely vignettes of your home, Brenda. Love that sweet mug of the lady with those lips. Love the vibrantly coloured, flower mug also. It looks so vivid hanging next to the red ones. Your Charlie is adorable. Hope you are enjoying lovely Sunday, Brenda.
