Sabi Saturday

Hello and welcome everyone to CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE. Daisy Mae And I are happy you are here. For those of you who don’t know what Sabi Saturday (and yes we know it’s Sunday) is here is a brief explanation that might help you. It is:

  • the vintage/antique item(s) handed down or we “rescue” from garage sales and thrift stores so they don’t end up in the trash bin.

  • items we’ve upcycled instead of throwing them away.

  • items we’ve repaired in a transformative way to make them more beautiful or cooler than before.

  • the main idea is showing how we treasure or reuse or creatively transform things that have some history to them, may be a bit worn but nevertheless are still useful/beautiful and often have character.

Now that you know what Sabi Saturday is Daisy Mae And I hope you will visit Cactus Catz for the Sabi Saturday blog hop and for more information. It’s not only fun but it might just get you more traffic on your blog. We look forward to seeing what you have in store for us. If you can’t make it on Saturdays no worries Sabi Saturday blog hop usually lasts about 5 days. For more info go to the link above and ask them.

Daisy Mae And I have for our Sabi Saturday this week an old jewelry box that the artwork on it looks well… Japanese. I know I know you’re probably thinking a jewelry box is a jewelry but in this case you would be wrong.

Sadly I don’t know much about the history of this old jewelry box because I wasn’t thought of yet. When one of my relatives(I think his name was “Uncle Ted) who was in the war(not sure which one) came home to see my Aunt Kay Dee he brought this jewelry box back to give her as a gift. She of course was thrilled to see him but also thrilled with the jewelry box. Then when she passed away her family cleaned out her house. However and for some reason, there was not one person who wanted the jewelry box. In fact, her side of the family brought us this jewelry box as well as a lot of other items they did not want. When we went through the boxes of stuff they didn’t want it was hard to believe they passed this stuff up. We came to the jewelry box and Mom asked if I would be interested in taking it. I said yes I would take it. I took this jewelry box because I needed it but because it belonged to my Aunt Kay Dee for many years and yes it is beautiful. I have a passion for jewelry and jewelry boxes so it comes in handy. Yes, I use it to keep jewelry in too. 

Below is a picture of the last picture I have of my Aunt Kay Dee who I inherited this old, beautiful jewelry box from and the picture of the Jewelry box.

MAXI: A Special Tribute

ABOUT A BICHON FRISE.

ABOUT A BICHON FRISE.

MAXI

Written By: Crystal Stewart

Written On: 6-19-2019

MAXI, you were looking for a furrever home… One that would love you forever no matter what.

Then one day a miracle happened. A wonderful, loving family who had just decided they wanted a pet and wanted it to be a small dog walked in just too look.

When you noticed they were looking your way, you tried to be as cute and beautiful as you could. You even showed off by showing this family how cute you really were.

MAX SLEEPING UNDER THE COVERS IN HIS OWNER’S BED.

You have brown eyes like that of a beautiful brown Butterfly. Your nose is pink with black speckles on it. You were a small white Bichon Frise dog who looked like a medium sized snowball.

Because this wonderful family decided to get a dog, you now have a wonderful and loving furrever home. Although you didn’t have a favorite football team when they got you, you somehow became an Eagles Fan.

MAX IN HIS EAGLES SHIRT AND HAVING BAD HAIR ON HIS PENGUIN BLANKET!!

You ended up being a Mama’s Boy and really enjoyed being with her, cuddling with her and laying in those sunpuddles. You also loved cuddling with your “sister” on a Penguin blanket, chasing the Squirrels and Chipmunks, Posing for pictures but most of  all you really liked and enjoyed being with your family. You also hated going out into the snow where it was really cold.

Before earning your your wings to go over the Rainbow Bridge after almost 13 years you had so much fun with your furrever family you didn’t want to say goodbye so instead you decided to say farewell. Although your family will mourn your passing and grieve in their own way, they will always have the memories that they will cherish and they will never forget you.

Now that it’s Springtime Butterflies, Cocooned Caterpillars turning into beautiful Butterflies, Cardinals, Baby Cardinals, Squirrels, Baby Squirrels, Deer and Fawns are so cute and fun to watch. Don’t chase or hurt these animals for they are your friends.  Well you see Angel MAXI  sometimes visits in the form of these animals. Most of the time he will visit in the form of a Butterfly or Cardinal but When a baby animal is born, When  you see a Butterfly, When you see a Cardinal or any type of other animal, always remember Angel MAXI is watching and taking care of you.

Eileen’s Critters And My First Sunday Selfie Well Sort Of

I have a special Eileen’s Critters And Sunday Selfie this week. On June 10, 2019 we got a picture of the our first Fawn of the 2019 season. Sorry if the picture is dark but Mamma Deer isn’t brave enough yet apparently to bring her baby out in daylight. I had to share this with you. 

After a drink I think Mamma Deer is going to show her baby the ropes on how to go about posing for Sunday Selfies. For the first time I think this little Fawn did pretty good. Honestly, I think the Fawn is more interested in getting a drink. Mamma Deer is multitasking. She’s eating and posing for her Sunday Selfie and for Eileen Critters.

FIRST BABY FAWN OF 2019.

For Sabi Saturday I have decided to multiple old things since I got somehow so many old things in this picture. However, the main old thing I wanted  to do was one of my cats and her name was Snowball. She’s an Angel now. In the picture like I said there are are many old things. In the picture below you’ll see on my bed Angel Snowball. You’ll also see some other old things as well. You’ll see a stuffed cat which I appropriately named “SnowPuff” on the bed with Snowball also on the bed that’s old is a bedspread Pillow and stuffed teddy bear which I named “Teddy”. Also you’ll see some other old things like my cat box, pink curtains, the white shelves, yellow doll on the shelf, Santa container, books and picture album. Picture below.

As I told you previously about my niece going for her Doctorate Degree in Physical Therapy. Not only that but she has POTS DISEASE and other  health issues. What is POTS Disease I’m sure asking yourselves? POTS Disease is: Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome which means it is a condition in which a change from lying to standing causes abnormally large increase in heart rate. To Find out more about POTS Disease you can go to this search link and it is: POTS Disease (search links) .

Don’t think for an instant the University paid for this trip or any other trips the students had to take. OH no, the students paid for this trip and it wasn’t even part of their tuition. They had to pay for it separately. These are just some of the pictures we got. In the one picture the young woman is my niece.

The picture of the Eagle below is very old. This ought to tell you how old it is because I was still a kid when they got it. They always wanted a wood carving like when they found this Eagle they got it. We still have it. I just love it.

ANGEL QUEEN TIGGER ON MY BED WITH MY WHITE STUFFED CAT AND MY WHITE STUFFED POLAR BEAR.

1.) I would love to be a personal assistant to Amorette Anderson who is an author. I think it would be fun and interesting.

2.) If I had a boat, I would name it Tigger after my last cat who was a Tabby Cat. She went over the Rainbow Bridge on 9-11-2015.😿😿 I have no idea when she was born.

3.) I want to improve my writing skills and improve on the virtue of patience.

4.) Surprises are sometimes good and sometimes bad but rarely what you want them to be. I wish you all good surprises.

Nashville Photo Gallery

My one niece who is going for her Doctorate Degree in Physical Therapy at Slippery Rock University here in Pennsylvania. She’s been studying and doing  what the university calls Clinicals. What are Clinicals?  It’s similar to an internship. It’s hands on learning and a way to get better. The students have to do so many weeks out of state in Clinicals and so many weeks in state. One of the places out of state she chose was a place in Nashville. The places in the state of Pennsylvania she chose was close to her home luckily. She chose a place in Cranberry, PA and also at the VA in Butler, PA. She gets her Doctor coat this year and will graduate in May of 2020. I may be partial but I am a very proud Aunt. 

While down in Nashville she sent us a bunch of pictures. So I thought I’d share  some with you. ENJOY. She liked Nashville so much she wouldn’t mind going back.
