I Like Thursday #111 from Not Afraid of Color

this little piggy still has flowers!
welcome to this week's list of likes. Mostly just pictures for this week's list.
blue skies, yellow leaves
blue skies with snow capped mountains appearing overnight
Apparently they moved in to the 'hood overnight. We haven't seen them since we moved in June, but maybe the wildfire smoke is finally out, and it's not raining right now so....
leaves painted on every edge
Guard Ghosts

Peek-a-boo scarecrows

I Like Thursday #110 Easy as 1,2,3... fall snow festivals and a poodle from Not Afraid of Color

It's as easy as one, two, three! Welcome to this week's list of likes! Each week I try to focus on the small fun things to enjoy. On a walk this weekend, I happened onto the wee little pine cone, then the twig. One, two.
three. From a lovely bright golden tree. I was pleased with this, although Milo thought I should give the twig to him, then saw this across the street from our house... Four/ Fore!
We live in a golf course community
 I like doing a Monday Happy Homemaker post that is fun! (here) and ...

I Like Thursday #109 from Not Afraid of Color

Welcome to this week's list of likes! The above photo is from yesterday's post with lots of fun fall pictures from the festival we attended last weekend! I liked that they had tubs there for washing off your purchase before going home!

And this reminder we aren't in the East anymore!
Nope, maybe we aren't in big sky country but it's darn near close enough!
We have had a few cool days and the trees are trying to brighten up the landscape with color

and it's beginning to look a lot like Halloween!

I Like Thursday 108 flowers, trader joe's, little red wagons, and a poodle from Not Afraid of Color

Welcome to this week's list of likes! I love the free wagon the table owners gave me. I move the plants around, and enjoy the view from my computer perch at the kitchen table. Look at that little squash DH's workmate gave him! Adorable.

We made a trip to Trader Joe's last weekend, I love TJ's and it's a long trek from our house now, so we stock up
I haven't installed pull outs in the pantry yet but for now am using turntables to help reach things.

I wanted some pumpkin cookies but ...

I Like Thursday #107 from Not Afraid of Color

Welcome to this week's list of likes! 

Doesn't this look inviting? We love the front porch, with it's little sliver of a mountain view. I like to  sit a moment to cool off from my walks, before jumping back into house jobs. The chairs are from Pier One. Also from that store is this wonderful blue pumpkin
It looks great on the mantel right now!
Monday, I wrote a post about my table purchase and weekly goals (in case you missed it, look HERE
 This bowl is hand painted (not by me although I've painted a ...

I Like Thursday # 106 from Not Afraid of Color

Welcome to this week's list of likes. I may not like temps in the 90's but I love the spectacular cloud shows here in Colorado! This stunned us one evening as we left Target!
I like that my flowers are coming back to life, and the shape of this awesome white flower
each little stem has 5 small petals all on one side, which makes me want to stop everything and go make a quilt like this

Our neighborhood had a Doggie Day at the pool just before shutting down for the winter
the ambassador, wearing a cow ...

I Like Thursday #105 Pumpkins, scrolls and springs from Not Afraid of Color

We had a busy week here at Chez Paylor. Welcome to this week's list of likes...
We went to the garden/produce center and Milo wanted a pumpkin.(It's just a little too early to get that kind of pumpkin, Pumpkin.) Even to get one of these kind, seen at a store in Manitou Springs

 But DH did come home with one of these from the grocery store

Ah Fall.

I like Fall flamingos...
 Did you think you were leaving here without a flamingo picture? Ha! I thought this was very clever!

This week I liked working in ...

I Like Thursday #104 Plums, Mums, and a poodle from Not Afraid of Color

Welcome to this week's list of likes!
I found this piece this week, while trying to start setting up my new studio space. More on that later.
 I painted wooden letters with acrylics, having fun with the designs, the hand-dyed background is quilted, bound, then stretched on wood.I sewed loops around the letters to attach them.
Unfortunately the packers/movers broke it but I will eventually try to repair it with wood glue.

I liked finding these mums 80% off at Lowes this week. I just pinched off all the dead flowers and the worker said they would ...

I Like Thursdays #103 from Not Afraid of Color

Welcome to this week's list of likes! It's been a week of mostly "getting things done" or trying.

This is the view from my LR/DR window, and the one I'll have from a table (yet to be purchased) that I plan to do my beading on. I love windows and our home has more than many we considered. I love seeing outside.

I love this bent-wood furniture piece we bought on a trip to Lake Placid NY. We are sorely missing it this year, but so glad we bought this on one visit, and squeezed it ...

I Like Thursday #102 from Not Afraid of Color


 Welcome to this week's list of likes!
I like the windmill's in our neighborhood. They are landmarks for neighbors to know where you are in the 'hood

One person is taking a picture of the windmill from the same angle each day for a year. For some photography project, great idea.



I liked joining Sams club again, and finding these containers of just the right size for paints!
In case you want some.
My studio space is very small here, so I am taking part of the living room for storage, and have to figure out what goes ...

Milo:  Mama let me start this week! Welcome to this week's list of likes by me, Milo the super Poodle! I love my indestructible chicken! It takes a biting and keeps on cluckin" ! I got one wing off, and it's not like they say... it didn't taste like chicken, BOL! Snort! wha' ??

LeeAnna: Okay, okay, I'll just step in here and do my list first shall I?
Milo: well, okay, but I'll be over here in case that chicken gets out of hand!

I Like Thursday #100 from Not Afraid of Color

welcome to this momentous week of likes!
This is my 100th "I Like" post and no one is more surprised than I am to have done it consistently for 100 posts!  Keeping track of the things I like each week has helped me immensely. It's easy to focus on things that need changing, that might have gone wrong, or the slights of life, but remembering the good things keeps life in balance.

I love the color red, and put the mixer on our counter this week, and draped my vintage stitched towels over it. I love vintage kitchen items ...

I Like Thursdays #99 shops, festivals, and more from Not Afraid of Color

Welcome to this week's list of likes! Today I have a mix of cute random stuff, so grab a cup of tea, maybe pet your flamingo, and let's get started!

I Liked these Enormous flamingo sculptures at a garden shop in  Ft. Collins this past weekend.

Around the house, I like the container store pull out shelves DH installed in the bottom of each kitchen cabinet
I liked finding this cow spinner in a box, from a trip to  Rehoboth Beach MD
He keeps getting blown down because we live in a dang wind tunnel.
I liked meeting ...

I Like # 98 (that rhymes!) from Not Afraid of Color


Welcome to this week's list of likes!  I love cut flowers in the house!

I found this little teapot and wondered why I didn't throw it away in MD, as it started life as a lotion dispenser but is missing it's pump. Well, I stuck all the tiny broken flowers in it after buying this at Trader Joes this weekend
Isn't this group charming??? The ones in the tiny teapot were broken and I couldn't bear throwing a blossom away.
Lucky for me, I'm a hoarder of colorful pretty things, and the teapot was ...

I Like Thursdays #97 flamingos, art, shadows and a poodle from Not Afraid of Color

Welcome to this week's list of likes! I like flamingos (surprised? ) I am happily finding some flamingo treasures that have been packed away for 6 months plus. The lovely ceramic planter used to live on the back porch table in MD, now on my kitchen desk.
The tall one footed fluffy haired flamingo was a gift long ago from my sister Patty. She asked if it was too tacky... (can a flamingo item BE tacky??? I don't think so...) (It's a writing pen!!)
seriously the unpacking takes much longer than one might suspect, I wrote a story ...

Milo's misdemeanors... sprinklers and papers from Not Afraid of Color

I'm innocent, see?? I was framed! You can't pin this on me....

I know NOTHING about those papers... 
Let me see them closer... hand over the evidence
willful destruction of property
 Oh. 
well. 
They do smell a bit like my spit.
Only, I have a busy life you know and I have little self control and I have only a few minutes at a time where I can concentrate and I don't spend it remembering! There's a lot to do around here. 
What? What papers? 
oh. 
Welllllllllllll, I suppose a dog could have found some papers ...

Milo goes walkabout from Not Afraid of Color

Milo here to tell you about my adventure!
Usually I like to stick to Mama like a little velcro piece but last week I had a walkabout!
Here's the story...
Daddy leaves for work, and Mama gets up to play on the computer while she drinks coffee. Sometimes I like to go back in my crate for a morning nap, and sometimes I am napped out and ready to rumble...trouble is Mama is no good before the whole coffee/computer/breakfast thing. On this morning I decided to go out back to the little putting green and bark ...
