Fancy Friday Antiques

Fancy Friday Antiques is here!  It's time to share our well worn treasures!!  Many of us like antiques and vintage things because something old often has a story that goes with it.   Something old has been loved, worn, survived, and aged with a patina that shows it has lived a well used life.  These are some of my aged and well-loved things in my home and some of their stories. This picture is of my husband's Great Grandfather.  He was a missionary and a minister.  This picture is dated:  New York 1905.  It is often a … [Read more...]

Fancy Friday Be Yourself

"The simplest questions are the most profound.  Where were you born?  Where is your home?

Fancy Friday Frontiers

"The pioneers gave up their safety, their comfort, and sometimes their lives to build our new west. They were determined to make the new world strong and free - an example to the world. Some would say that those struggles are all over. That all the horizons have been explored. That all the battles have been won. That there is no longer an American frontier. And we stand today on the edge of a new frontier. The frontier of unknown opportunities and perils. Beyond that frontier are uncharted areas of science. Unsolved … [Read more...]

Fancy Friday Kitchen Tables “Have A Seat”

If you've been following us on Fridays, you'll know that we like it Fancy!  We take today to feature the things that inspire us!  Well, not too long ago, we were twittered by @hipgirls Kate Payne who wanted to start a #FancyFriday run!  Only to find out, great minds think alike!  Because we are always on the look out for a FancyFriend, we stalked her, only to find out, what we already sensed in our bones, she's our kinda gal!  So, in LoveFeast fashion, we asked Kate to pull up a chair and join us at the Table!  We feel so … [Read more...]

Fancy Friday Faces

"It is the common wonder of all men, how among so many million faces, there should be none alike."   ~Sir Thomas Browne "Man's face is his autobiography. A woman's face is her work of fiction." ~Oscar Wilde "As a beauty I'm not a great star. Others are handsomer far; but my face -- I don't mind it because I'm behind it; it the folks out in front that I jar." ~A.H. Euwer "What is a face, really? Its own photo? Its make-up? Or is it a face as painted by such or such painter? That which is in front? … [Read more...]

Fancy Friday City Murals

Bombing is "is the act of throwing up a large piece of graffiti".  Michael Owen is literally Love Bombing all over Baltimore.  He has initiated a mural project called Baltimore Love Project. "This project is not intended to change the world. However, we know that these murals have the power to inspire change, if just through small, tangible acts of love from one to another. We hope a man is moved to pick up flowers for his girlfriend or a mother reconsiders hitting her child for a night. In order to assist in these … [Read more...]
