I've been Tagged! Three or More Thursday 1/15

Linda at Somewhere in Time tagged me with a fun meme and I thought "Why not? I'll play!"
Now here are the directions: Open a document or photo folder, choose the fifth folder and then the fifth photo in that folder. Do a post describing the photo. Tag five friends to do the Meme. So here's mine....
You've all met Miss Cookie's N' Cream (her registered name) or as my kids call her
"Cookie Elizabeth Travees Von Schnauzer. Don't ask me why, I don't know (lol!). This picture was taken one chilly Autumn morning. Schnauzers do not have "fur". They have hair, and my little miss has rather thin and fine hair so even though I let her hair grow long in the cooler months, it doesn't do much to keep her warm. One day, while perusing the racks at the thrift store, I decided I'd buy her a sweater. I found this little yellow knitted sweater in the infants section. I rolled up the sleeves so that it would fit her short, little legs. I think she looks rather "bright & sunny". Just what was needed that chilly morning.

I'm tagging
Raggedy Girl @ Little House in the Desert
A new blogerrina who I've loved getting to know. She is such a sweet lady and visiting her blog always gives me that "warm, cozy" feeling.
Bella @ Bella Della
Bella didn't know this but I kind of envy that she lives on a farm with a quaint little general store. The history and beauty that surround her are Awesome to me!
Carrie @ Oak Rise Cottage
Carrie is a wonderful lady who's strong foundation of faith inspires me.
Angie @ Sandals & Daisies
Angie is creative, fun, optimistic, gracious and has a blog that just makes you feel so welcome!
Dawn @ Dawn's Daybreak
Dawn is just AWESOME! She's awesome Dawn. I love that she shares her days, her "going's on", her love of family and welcomes you in with the invitation to grab a cup of coffee and sit a while.







It's also time for Three or More Thursday which is hosted by Tam @ The Gypsy's Corner. Give her a visit and see who else is sharing collections today. If you haven't all ready joined in the fun, sign up and play with us!









I know I've shared this on my blog in the past, but it's been a while, so I thought I'd share them again. This is a bit of my collection of vintage postcards. All of these are from the 40s.

Hi Rechelle,

Love the vintage postcards, each one being a little work of art and how fun to read the back from so many years ago. Thank you for participating in 'Three or More - Thursday'.
Wishing you a wonderful evening,
