FRIDAY FRAGMENTS

Half-Past Kissin' Time
Joining in with Mrs.4444 today!


Some beautiful clouds.....

The end of our tomatoes......

 Some brownies bites with PB M&M's......

My newest canvas for my gallery wall.....


************
So if you read my blog regularly you know that Mark went to Europe for 12 days and I didn't get to join him. (Yes I am still upset about it but very thankful to God for his safe travel)  This is where he stayed and I know I would have loved to stay there touring around Stratford.....sigh!

Billesley Manor Hotel

So back in August a blog friend Frau from West Family Adventures posted a picture of a tea towel her husband bought for her when he was in London. So I requested one from Mark if he could find it. Luckily he did find it plus another one that is similar but different because of the birth date and name. He also found a mug for me.


Front of mug....

Back of mug....

Also if you remember there is a co-worker who Mark hired who is originally from the Worcester, UK office and I met his parents back in June 2011 and she knows I am a big fan so she sent a few magazines home with Mark for me. Win win......

That was so sweet of Mark to get what you wanted from his trip, Debby. I like the cup. Neat with the other momentoes you got too from friends. I'm glad Mark got back safe and sound, but wow, what a great place he stayed at. Hopefully maybe you'll go the next trip?

That tea towel is beautiful.

Too sad about the tomatoes. I hate seeing the growing season come to an end. I just love summer.
However, now I get to look forward to your amazing Hallmark tree!!!!!
