* Nostalgic Sundays *

It's time for another Nostalgic Sunday.

Today's post isn't technically about nostalgia,
 but it's about little things that make me happy.

Writerly coffee mugs!
(Saturday Writers is the local writing group I've been the president of this year.)

Chocolate covered strawberries - Yum!

Beautiful fall foliage, even on a rainy day.
I took this picture from inside my laundry room.
I purposely wanted to capture the rain drops on the window.
"Cheapie" earrings from Walmart -- $2.88. (no kidding)

Same as above: $2.88

These photos don't do the earrings justice. They are really beautiful. I've never seen such nice ones for such a small price! I just happened to notice different earring displays as I walked down the aisle and couldn't believe my eyes when I looked at the price. 

I've told girlfriends over the years that whenever I'd feel a little down and needed an inexpensive pick-me-up, I'd head to the earrings in various department stores at the mall. I'd usually find a pretty pair on sale for less than $10.00 and I'd be a happy gal! BUT, to find such gorgeous ones for $2.88!...Well, I just had to go crazy and buy TWO pair!

(All photos taken by me except for the Taylor family in Mayberry. That was found in Google.)

Aunt Bee would be so proud of me and my frugality!

  1. Oh my gosh. Pass me a chocolate covered strawberry! :)

    And... I'm off to Walmart for some new earrings :)

  2. Becky, That's a fantastic photo with the raindrops! I love costume jewelery too, and chocolate strawberries make me slaivate.

    I must behave today. I must behave today. I must behave today. I ate all weekend!

  3. Thanks for stopping by. I welcome new blog friends and had to come over to tell you so.

    The earrings are a great find. They have an old world look to them that I am fond of. I agreee that the chocolate covered strawberries look great.

    I am your newest follower. Nice to meet you.

  4. What a great post Becky. Your joy just spills over and really makes me smile.

  5. I need to get one of those calendars from Bob. Thanks for reminding me!


    PS. Very good things here!

  6. I vote for the chocolate covered strawberries!


  7. Thanks for calling by my blog Becky. Writers group mugs! that is very cool. I would not have thought of it but it's a great idea. Add to your list chocolate brazil nuts - have you ever tasted them? Yummy! :)

  8. Becky, thanks again for tossing a look-see my way. You are very kind. I can't think of anyone who exemplifies the "Enjoy the little things..." spirit more than you do. Smiles, rb.


I'm sorry, but I have to change my comment moderation, due to some strange and offensive comments that were left overnight.
