BACK TO VERMONT!

To those who do not know…

In January, 2013 we moved back to Brattleboro, Vermont!

First, Chloe had to get used to the cold again!

From Snow 2013

So…I bought her a shirt!

From First 2 months of 2013

But the little “angel” did not go for the shirt…

And got used to sitting in the sun to warm her fur!

From First 2 months of 2013

Although we did have to get used to the cold weather too…

From Snow 2013

The beauty of it all was very welcomed!

From Snow 2013

We love the snow!

And the frost on the windows!

And as soon as we could we went back to something we started here,

AUCTIONING!

But before we got too cold…

From First 2 months of 2013

We went back to Florida for a week!

From First 2 months of 2013

Where we thrifted instead of auctioned!

Jim’s new old safety glasses!

A bright and cheery throw!

And those of you who know us,
May also know about…

VALENTINEKA!

Officially called, “The 9 Days of Valentineka”!

A holiday I made up for Jim for the days between my birthday and Valentine’s Day.

He gets surprises every day…the above was hearts for every day I have loved him so far!

From First 2 months of 2013

Celebrating my 49th holiday…

With my awesome new friend, neighbor and crafting extraordinaire…

and our husbands!

For my birthday, Jim gave me a new small camera!

From First 2 months of 2013

But I have to pay some kudos to the old one!

You were born in New Braunfels, TX at some store around Labor Day 2008 and served us so well with thousands of great photos!

Even though, we had a “better” camera, you were our closest ally all around Central America on boats, on zip lines, hiking, kayaking, countless bus trips, exploring cities/town/villages/jungles, museums, walking, running, waiting for cows on the road, and so on!

May you rest well in camera heaven and until we are ready to let you go…you will be put in a place on honor in our newest adventure!

By the way, I highly recommend this camera if you can not tell. I miss it already, as my new small Nikon can take photos underwater it is not as good as “Old Brown” for all other photos!

Now Back to…

Our morning spot across from the cafe in Indialantic, Florida!

From First 2 months of 2013

And one of our newest favorite places not far from Indialantic, Capt’n Hiram’s!

Some guy has been there for over 20 years making palm hats and such!

From First 2 months of 2013

With areas for beach exploration, concerts, outdoor fire pits, BBQs…

Love it!

From First 2 months of 2013

And as our trip was ending…

From First 2 months of 2013

We got stuck at the Baltimore airport due to the Nor’Easter on Feb. 8th!

Even without our luggage we were able to acquire some needed supplies from the hotel clerk!
Everyone the next day, thanks you!

After 45 minutes on the tarmac, an hour at the airport wondering what we were to do, another hour at the rental car counters in shock from the prices of rentals, a night in a hotel, back to the car rental counters, renting a car and then a 9 hour drive, we made it back to Vermont for the rest of Valentineka and Valentine’s Day!

From First 2 months of 2013

And back to auctioning and thrifting!

From First 2 months of 2013

Mind you people, we did need to furnish our apartment!

Small vintage handmade tool box and large 1840’s blanket box were Valentineka gifts to Jim.

From First 2 months of 2013

The rest is for sale.

Wait okay, maybe not the barn print that Jim bought for himself!

From First 2 months of 2013

If you can guess what this is without looking it up…

I will sell it to you for cheap!

Made In France!

Pretty!

Pretty is good, but let’s go to exciting!

For 91 years ski jumpers have been coming to Brattleboro trying to escape…

the “Agony of Defeat” on the Harris Hill Ski Jump!

One of the Crazy Jumpers!

One can not be at a ski jump event without a…

Cowbell!

Good Times!

And Beautiful things…

From First 2 months of 2013

Everywhere in Vermont…

Even on the oil spilled streets!

From First 2 months of 2013

This is what I like to call “The Cheif”!

And if you were wondering…

From First 2 months of 2013

Chloe has settled in well to our new apartment…

And her new window bed!

REMEMBER EVERYONE….

ENJOY IT ALL!
