Thursday Thoughts: Organization

Love Peter Walsh!  He did me a great favor once (which I will write about soon)....and this little video about electronic organization is super.  Hmmmm....come to think of it, my desk looks a bit like the one on the left.  I better get busy!


***SORRY! Microsoft has moved the video. I will try to find it and repost!! While I am looking for it, check out these great Peter Walsh ways to organize your house!!

For your preppy enjoyment, an homage to the royal weddings of the past.
 My curtsy to my own Queen Mother...

Friday Find: Repeating Myself

My cousin is in town visiting me for a couple of days and we have spent a lot of time talking about our mothers and grandmothers. In celebration of Garden Week in Virginia, a reposting of a favorite article of mine....when Miss Betty and her mother were on the Greenville, South Carolina House and Garden Tour. I think my grandmother was 100 at the time. (You have to click once on the photo to enlarge it enough to read...)

Tuesday Tidings: The Importance Of Grammar

 
 
 
This is something one must be very careful about. The apostrophe in "y'all" is often misplaced ("ya'll"). Just remember, it takes the place of the "ou" in "you."

That is the grammar lesson for today, y'all!

Friday Find: How Did I Miss This?

Not sure how I missed this great video from ABC, where Lisa Birnbach, author of The Preppy Handbook and True Prep, makes over an ABC reporter.  Classic.

There will probably be a brief commercial at the beginning, but it's worth getting through it!

Monday Musings: Busy, Busy, Busy....

I have no good excuse for not blogging, except that I have been crazy-busy! I know many of you have also experienced this lately, and I am trying to make room in my life for a little down time. Not happening yet, but soon I hope.... In the meantime...until I have something better to entertain or educate you with.....Check out this great new free photo editing website I found! It is quick, easy and intuitive!

I LOVE IT!

More "preppiness" coming soon!  In the meantime....more genealogy!  Do you know where YOUR family was in 1940?
