Hop Highlights

roses and pearls Thank you to all of you for your sweet emails and comments. I’m hopeful my back will be better soon. I’ve been dealing with it for a couple of weeks now and it seems to be getting worse instead of better-and frankly, well, I’m sick of it :-) I’m limiting my time sitting in front of the computer so unfortunately I didn’t make it around to visit everyone at last week’s hop…head hanging low….I hope to get around to all of you tomorrow. I thought I’d share a few highlights from last weeks hop. If I feature you I invite you to grab a button from the button page.

Christine at I Dig Pinterest is getting ready for Halloween with this fun crafty runner.


I’m closing  this wonderful look back at a few of the terrific links from last weeks hop with this post from Katie’s Thoughts. Every time I see anything to do with John Wayne I think of my Father. He was such a huge fan. I bought him a very expensive signed lithograph for his birthday one year. Every time I saw it hanging on the wall it made me feel good. It was difficult to impress my Father but that picture seemed to do it.

See you at the Thursday Favorite Things hop, I look forward to seeing what you share this week.

  1. This looks wonderful doll, you continue to take good care of yourself and feel better!! xx

  2. Katie, I know that feeling well with my back issues when it flares, I can’t sit for long periods of time, because when I get back up my back will spasm. Standing is actually far less painful for me when I have had my back issues. Really do feel for you and just hope you feel better now soon.

  3. Good morning Katherine. I have worked for a chiropractor for 13 years now. Have you seen one? If you find the right one it can be like a miracle. I also have had issues because of working on a computer so darn much. I stand at work now and many times at home I will stand and work at the counter on my computer. Lay or sitting is always best. Our bodies aren’t meant to sit so much. Take care of yourself my sweet friend. I am sending you a great big healing HUG :) xxoo

  5. I just came over to see how you’re feeling, sorry to hear it’s not great. :(

  6. Thank you so much for featuring my Double Chocolate..Double Nut Zucchini Bread! Hugs, Penny

  7. It’s hard to keep a good woman down long. Get better soon. You are in my prayers.

  8. You will get better. Sending prayers up for you. I wear a simple back brace that I purchased form Sports Authority. That brace is my go-to when my back gets out of wack. I wear it for about a week and I am back to normal. While you are recuperating, take the time to breathe in nature and all of your surroundings. There is so much beauty around us, that we tend to miss when we are busy, which is all of the time. Smiles, joy and peace~

    Thinking of you, Cynthia

  9. Prayers for you!

  10. Oh Katherine, I’m so sorry to hear about your back pain… my husband has been having trouble with his back also (ever since he tried carrying a huge box by himself). It’s difficult to be able to do routine things,… hoping for your speedy recovery :)

  11. Sorry to learn that you are not well, I sure hope it will not last long. You will be in our prayers.

  12. I’m so sorry to hear that you are not feeling well Katherine. That is certainly no fun. You’ll be in my thoughts and prayers for a quick recovery!

  13. I hope you’re feeling better.
