R.I.P. Morgan Harrington

Hi prim girls, 

This is a sadly post. For 3 months now, in the right colum of my blog, I had a link to Find Morgan Harrington, she was the beautiful lady girl that disappeared on October 17, 09 while attending a Metallica concert at the John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville, Virginia. I was so scared and frustated with this abduction, I saw the blog every day to see if they post good news. I am thinking all the time what I do if one of my kids or my nieces goes to a tragedy like that , and I can not imagine how much pain are in her parent's heart. I pray so much for Morgan to returned safe to her home but sadly their body was discovered yesterday. Below is the statement made for her father. Please, make a pray for Morgan and her family .......... Rest in Peace, Morgan, Rest in Peace.....

"Morgan's mother, Gil, and I are overwhelmingly saddened by yesterday's discovery, but we are also relieved because our questions can now be answered and we can give our daughter a proper burial. We know that because of the good life Morgan led and the love she created for everyone around her, she is now in a safer, better place. We appreciate everyone's respect for our privacy at this difficult time and we thank everyone who has helped us through this tragedy and helped us find Morgan."

Bye, bye and se you soon, Evelyn

If you want higher temps or vacations........you need to see this

Hi prim girls,

Be prepared this is a long post full of pictures....... Probably you are dreaming with a spring or summer temps, if you said yes....continue reading this post. I will give you an eye candy with temps around 80's all year. Today, I will talk about geography(LOL) and one of the US territorries in the Caribbean...... Puerto Rico, my island. I am pretty sure that the most of you know about  it, or the name sounds familiar. PR is a little paradise in the Caribbean that you could access by air, in a cruise, obviously if you had your own yacht you can access it too, Ha, ha, ha.

Puerto Rico, officially the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, is a self -governing unincorporated territory of United States located in the northeastern Caribbean Sea, east of the Dominican Republic and west of the Virgin Islands. The main island of Puerto Rico is the smallest by land area among the four Greater Antilles, which also include Cuba, Hispaniola and Jamaica. Puerto Rico's head of state is the President of the United States. The island is also popularly known as "La Isla del Encanto", which translated means "The Island of Enchantment." People born in Puerto Rico are US Citizens.PR consists of the main island of Puerto Rico and various smaller islands.

Mostly mountainous with large coastal areas in the north and south. Located in the tropics, Puerto Rico has an average temperature of 82.4 °F (30 °C) throughout the year, temps do not change drastically throughout the seasons. The official languages are Spanish and English with Spanish being the primary language. English is taught as a second language in public and private schools from elementary levels to high school and in universities. Our currency is USD (United States Dollar).
If you visit Puerto Rico and explore the island you will see places like this ....
La Concha Resort in San Juan ( our capital)


Old San Juan,

 On the tip of Old San Juan, (our capital), you'll find Fort San Felipe del Morro, better known as El Morro. A 16th century citadel constructed to protect the town from attack by sea, El Morro is one of the highlights of any tour of the old city, a rocky web of tunnels and barracks, towers and prisons. Probably the most famous monument from Spanish colonial times, the fortress stands out on a rocky islet, forever a reminder of a different age.
Hotel  El Convento ( see hotel images and other Old San Juan tourist attractions in the city)

 Isla Verde Beach, San Juan, Selected as One of the 10 Best City Beaches in the World, is a curved pale pink sand beach.

Private Island Palomino at Conquistador
The challenging Arthur Hills Par 72 Golf Course, at El Conquistador Resort. ( This note is for Linda from Behind my red door, I think that your DH will love this (LOL).

Camuy Cave Park,  is the 268-acre, one of the largest cave systems in the world where attendees can take guided tours of cathedral-like caverns.

Arecibo Observatory, operated by Cornell University. It is one of the most powerful radar-radio telescopes and the largest single unit telescope in the world. To find out more go to www.naic.edu.

Hope you enjoy this tour for Puerto Rico. Are you ready for vacations now???? I am sure that I need another PR vacations, Yeahhhhhhh.

Bye, bye and see you soon,

Love this picture, love this basket !

Hi prim girls,
I have a corner cupboard that I bought two years ago in the store of Anitza from Victorian Country, and  I want to paint it in a different color. This week we are talking about the color combination that I  can used on it, and Anitza send me an ecard from Webshot with a beautiful cupboard and a huge basket above it.

( Sorry for the images but I take pictures from my computer and my CS magazine).Love the picture and the beautiful cupboard is from Earlene's house. She had an amazing prim home,  I love her house since I see it in Country Sampler on March 2009. Do you remembered?  if not,  here CS pic's. Also, this house appear in the "Friends home tours"on Dec 14,09 at  Primp your pad.

I was dreaming with a basket like that and yesterday I was at Marshalls and look what I found.

I know that it is not an antique but it is a beautiful reproduction basket,  huge with a nice color and I paid a good price for it ( only $14.99 + tax).

I have some projects from 2010, one of them is my bedroom. I want it with a colonial look, and I am buying some things to obtained the decor that I want. My first item was an eternal love coverlet that I bought few weeks ago in Janet's store Winter Willow Primitives . She had awesome items on her store, this is my first item  from it but I am sure that it will not be the last. Go to her store, you will not be dissapointed at all. Well, here is my first issue and I need your opinion. I am not sure if I need to change the color of my bed. It is like cooper/brownish iron  but I am not sure if I need to paint it in black. What do you think? This pic's will give you and idea how it looks.

I will be waiting for your opinion, please, if you can take a chance and make me a comment.

Bye, bye and see you soon, Evelyn
