Thursday Favorite Things (TFT) #484

I'm so glad you've stopped by for the Thursday Favorite Things (TFT) link party today.  Thank you for being here!


I've not been feeling my best for a few months now, as I've been dealing with inflammatory arthritis. (It's different from the more typical osteoarthritis, in that it's an inflammatory, autoimmune process often associated with Sjogren's, lupus, etc. and is the type of arthritis associated with rheumatoid arthritis.)  I have Sjogren's Syndrome, so that's the source of it.  Who knew it would hurt so much just to get off of the sofa or a chair??


I bring this up mainly to ask, have any of you taken Methotrexate for inflammatory arthritis (rheumatoid arthritis, lupus arthritis, Sjogren's arthritis, etc.?) My rheumatologist has prescribed it. If you have taken Methotraxate, or have managed to avoid it, I'd love to hear your experience! 


Our sweet Sunny did another "death fakeout" as we call it, a couple of days ago.  She's in kidney failure, and every once in a while she has a rare bad day, that makes us think it's one of her last. We prepare for the worst, but, every time it happens, she gets up the next morning and is back to her current Sunny self.  She's such a happy girl.  The last couple of days, she seems absolutely recovered from her "death fakeout," so we are grateful for that!


Some days Sunny looks 15, but some days she doesn't!

Thursday Favorite Things #483

Welcome to the Thursday Favorite Things (TFT) link party.  Happy Easter wishes to all of you who celebrate!


It really is feeling like spring here. Every year it's such a surprise for me - "Oh, yeah, spring happens!  I almost forgot."  I literally feel like that every spring. Winters here seem so long, it's easy to forget that the days can be sunny and green. So when it happens, it's a cheerful surprise.


This week, I've been (still) finishing up the organizational nightmare tasks in my art/craft space.  I spent yesterday afternoon with my pens and brush markers. I now have them all sorted and organized.  That sounds like such a simple sentence, doesn't it? Phew. I have a lot of pens and markers (for which I am grateful!) I love them. But, I don't love organizing them, so it's really nice to have them so accessible.

Simple Ways to Inject Style Into Your Yard or Garden

It’s that time of year again when balmy afternoons and long, light evenings arent far away. As spring gets into full swing and summer looms, there’s no better time to get your yard and garden ready.


If the winter has left your yard looking more drab than fab, here are some simple ways to inject serious style.








Fencing, Decking and Paving

Our yards and gardens have become multi-purpose spaces, which serve an array of functions. If you have children, pets, or you love to entertain or indulge hobbies and interests, for example, you might find that your garden is a haven of peace one day and a base for socializing and getting together over a barbecue or a glass of wine the next.

One of the best ways to add aesthetic appeal, as well as enhancing functionality, is to use different materials and structures to create separate zones. You can hire fence builders, lay a new patio or use paving stones or gravel to section off areas for chilling out with a good book, hanging out with the kids or grandchildren, entertaining and growing plants and produce. Whether you have a compact space or a large garden, you can use fences, patios, decks and gates to smarten up the space, add character, and make the space more practical and versatile.

Thursday Favorite Things #482: Spring is Here

Happy Thursday and Happy Spring!  I'm so glad you're here for the Thursday Favorite Things (TFT) link party today.  This week has flown by for me.  


On the blog this week, I shared How to Use a Cloth Shower Curtain for a Window or Door Treatment.  I guess this idea isn't really rocket science, but it made me so happy that it worked out, with a shower curtain I already had on hand.

How to Use a Shower Curtain for a Door or Window Treatment

Have you ever thought to use a cloth shower curtain for a door or window treatment?  That's what I'm sharing with you today, and I'm really happy with how it turned out.






We have glass doors in our basement, near my art/craft space.  Loads of great sunlight comes through the door. I love the sunlight, and it's  one of the reasons I chose the space.  It makes me so happy.  But sometimes, it's a little too much sunlight.

I wanted to soften the light a bit and add some privacy, so I hung a "shower curtain curtain."  Yes, a cloth shower curtain can make a great curtain for a door or window.  It was news to me!
