Random 5 Friday

 
 
Today I'm joining Random 5 Friday, at Nancy's A Rural Journal, for the first time. Random 5 Friday is a weekly meme where you share "5 random facts about you, your pets, your kids, whatever".
 
Okay, here are my Random 5 for this week.
 
1. I thoroughly enjoy thrifting, and two weeks ago I scored this little French pitcher for $2.
 
 
 
 
 
 

2. Hubby and I spent a few days in Hood River, Oregon last week, and came home with some amazing pears at 75 cents/lb.
 
 
 
 
 
3. The red and yellow pears ripened to a delicious sweet flavor; so wonderful in a green salad with walnuts and feta cheese, dressed with a raspberry vinaigrette.
 
 
 
 
 
 
4. My husband recently spilled cinnamon hazelnut ground coffee and used our dustbuster to clean it up. The aroma remains in the dust cup. Now every time I use the dustbuster I crave a cup of coffee.
 
 
 
 
5. I have a weakness for mocha lattes and love to indulge myself when I spy a coffee bar.
 
 
 
 
Isn't this fun? Hop on over to Random 5 Friday to see other Randoms, and link up to join the party.
 
Blessings,

  2. Love the pitcher and I want to spill that cinnamon hazelnut coffee it would make housekeeping easier if you thought there was a reward at the end following the vacuum. B

    1. Beth, I did have another blog Joyful Altitude. We left the Colorado mountains and moved to Oregon, so the blog no longer reflected my life. I'm just about ready to launch another photography blog that will work better for me. Thanks for visiting. Good to hear from you again. I've missed all my old blogging friends. Hugs.

  5. I would have been tempted by that pitcher as well! And the pears -- what luscious colors!

    Funny about the vacuum, but great way to make it smell nice. :) Thanks for joining in Nancy!

  6. I thoroughly enjoyed your blog post. And, that pitcher caught me eye right away. I love pitchers... but then I love platters, bowls, plates... heck, I just love dishes.
