So, do you have it?

(French word in origin that carries the connotation of a flamboyant manner or reckless courage)

I left a comment on a fellow blogger's post this morning that has got me thinking. (ya, novel idea huh) Why not have Panache every day of our lives? Humm?
To answer to my own question, I would have to say no I don't have a lot of Panache. But reconsidering, in all fairness to myself, the answer may be, sometimes I do. Yes, there are times when I have Panache, and then there are times when I am sadly lacking it. I think I place to many restrictions on myself. But as of today, I'm vowing to have some PANACHE in each and every day! To be bold, to make a jingle when I move, to have a little sass, & to show how much I love my life. I want keep my DH's life so stirred up, that he'll wonder which side is going to be up this time! I want him to miss me when I'm not with him. LOL ( can he truly be happy in a calm and drab atmosphere?) If you have Panache, I tip my hat to you ! I want to be like you when I grow up !

...........And speaking of growing up,........ my oldest grandchildren are 7 today! Unbelievable!

Happy Birthday Baby A and Baby B!

Last time I went to TS I was lucky enough to snag this bowl. Don't know how old it is, or who made it. I do know it's old, and I love it.

Onto more old.....
My daughter gifted me with this old cupboard. Many years ago it had been in the kitchen of her home. I need to clean it. Don't know that I'll re paint it, but I may do some sanding and staining, and I think I'll add some doors. I Love it! Can't wait to get it done and placed in it's spot.

AND, this is how it goes with a 12 year old! I asked him to pose for posterity. There we are! LOL

Have a great day everyone! I'm off to birthday shop, and while I'm at it, I think I look for a nice apple green Jeep for myself! ( just want to add some Panache to my life! ) ♥
