Hello! Welcome to my blog. I hope you enjoy your visit today. Let me tell you a little bit about myself.
My name is Suzanne, better known as The Coloradolady. We live in Texas, but my heart belongs in Colorado. I love being in the mountains and enjoy all Colorado has to offer a nature lover. We have a cabin in the mountains and love spending time there. Hopefully, someday we can retire there to our mountain retreat.
I am a married to the love of my life.....well, most times he is the love of my life.....sometimes I am not so sure......just keepin' it real here!! We have been married for 23 years and we really do have a good life together. Things are not always easy, but then again, the important things in life usually are not. I am a "working mom" to two adult children. My son is the oldest and he works in the oil field industry. My daughter just graduated from the University of North Texas and a steady social life.
My three "babies" at home are my three dachshunds, Sophie, Dora and Bailey, the joys of my life. These little dogs keep me on my toes. They are always getting into something, especially Dora and they demand my complete attention at all times. They are devoted, lovable, and I can not imagine my life without these three sweet girls.
I have a fondness for vintage things. I collect vintage linens, tablecloths and handkerchiefs from the 40's and 50's. I have a passion for vintage platters and can hardly pass one up when I find them at estate sales. I also collect vintage Christmas items. I have a particular interest in vintage glass ornaments, vintage salt & pepper shakers and 50's and 60's Christmas paper items.
I also collect black bears and have a bedroom decorated in nothing but black bear things. I love to imagine I am in the heart of Colorado when I walk in that room surrounded by cute little black bear things.
I love estate sales and enjoy bargain shopping. I love cooking and hope to share some of my favorite recipes on this blog. I like to try new dishes, but I always like the old tried and true dishes as well. I love sweet tea, lemonade and sunshine, in no particular order of preference. I love to spend time in my garden. I enjoy photography, and love treasure hunting.
Welcome to my blog I hope you enjoy your visit and look forward to getting to know each of you. You never know what you may find here.....literally, from dogs to dishes and everything in between!!
