Simple Things

Bonjour from Campagne Maison

Recently an Anonymous commenter said that sometimes "the most simple things in life bring the most joy". No truer statement has ever been made and I appreciate that comment. It caused me do a little thinking. Sometimes, I forget to “think”.

These are some simple things that I did recently that made me happy! A couple of weekends ago, my sister Karen, and I went to Knoxville to dog sit for our sister, Melanie, while she and her husband were visiting out of town. We spent several hours relaxing on the patio while the dogs enjoyed playing outside. We talked about simple things--girl talk--sister talk, you know some silly things but some serious stuff too! Deep stuff like: who it was that really peed the bed and blamed it on the other one when we were kids to why our sister didn’t leave us any sweets to snack on—simply because SHE is always on a diet!

We spent the entire afternoon on Saturday and most of Sunday shopping AND replenishing our blood sugar levels. I won’t even try to tell you how simple it was to order and eat those delicious, mouth watering, buttery, drowned in warm Maple syrup, Blueberry waffles at IHOP!

The both of us love to shop at Kirkland’s and always find several things that we simply can’t leave the store without. We both fell in love with these simple, but elegant, enameled and jewel encrusted crosses. I couldn’t decide on which one that I liked the best,

so I got both of them. That was just the simplest thing to do!

Don’t you simply love them?
They were simply irresitable!

Wishing you a simply wonderful weekend from the beautiful Sweetwater Valley in East TN!

Thanks for stopping by the farmhouse for a visit today. We simply love having company!

Au revoir,

A perfectly lovely day from what I see. You easily follow my personal motto, when you can't decide between something, take BOTH. hahahaha. Have a wonderful weekend. Sea Witch

Hi Jacque,

What a lovely way to spend a weekend. I love the crosses. I would have bought both of them too.

Thanks for stopping by and becoming a follower!!! I just love making new friends!!!

I use Windows Live Writer for my blog. I find that it is the easiest way to organize your photos and insert text. It also allows you to enlarge your photos with ease.

Sometimes I do my posts ahead of time and save them...other times I do them the same day. For Barb's party...just gather your pics together...create your post and then publish it that day. Barb will have information on her post for that day on how to link to her blog. Follow the instructions and then you will be added to a list with other bloggers...we all then visit each other and comment on all of our goodies!!! It is alot of fun!!!

I hope this helps a little bit. If you have anymore questions...feel free to ask.

Good Luck!!!
