  1. That weekend getaway looks gorgeous! And best of luck to the plumber. You hear so many stories of folks winning the lottery and then going bankrupt after mismanagement.

  2. I love that weekend getaway! The perfect retreat if you're looking to truly relax.

  3. Certainly made my weekend!
    Such a gorgeous little frog...and that getaway looks absolutely amazing!

    Have a Great Weekend.:))

  4. I want the getaway mood like that. The glass house in the forest would be nice!

  5. Wow, that is a lot of dough. A nice getaway too.

  6. I think I'd be willing to settle for 30%, for sure. What an incredibly small frog. We saw one hop off into oblivion a few days ago that was almost imperceptible in size. The tree house getaway is pretty awesome.

  7. @Just Keepin It Real, Folks!: Very true, hope he can invest his winnings wisely. Thank you for stopping by!

    @Plowing Through Life (Martha): Yes indeed it is. Thank you!

    @Ygraine: I'm glad that it did, thanks for visiting!

    @Gail J: I know what you mean. Nice seeing you on here!

    @Pat Hatt: Yes indeed it is. Many thanks!

    @Linda Kay: I think I'd settle for that amount as well. And yes the tree house is amazing stuff. Thank you for stopping by!

  8. Simply wonderful photos!

  9. What a cute frog!

    That's a funny quote at the top.

    So... what are you doing this weekend?

  10. @Gail: Hello and nice of you to visit!

    @Theresa Milstein: Greetings to you. I am going to relax and maybe read a nice book this weekend. Thanks for visiting!

  11. Consider me inspired...I love when I hear good news, see nature's miracles and travel to beautiful places!
    Please have a nice weekend with lots of inspiration,for you, too :)


    Thank you~

  12. Thanks for stopping by my site!

    Just when it is thought that all species have been discovered, a tiny tiny frog proves them wrong.

    That delightful vacation home would become a permanent home for me. We are preparing to move, downsize, and would love a green home.

  13. Awww that frog is so cute...i want it.. Happy weekend to you

  14. __All those millions; one wee frog; and that self-sufficient hideaway
    in the forest_!

    They are all are winners to me, and I hope Ya'll have a "Winning Weekend_!"

  15. Now i'd love to lay in all weekend after seeing that cabin,the serenity alone...peaceful.
    Have a great weekend n thanks for stopping by.

  16. WOW! That sure was a lucky win! I bet he won't keep working long, though. He'll be working with a ton of jealous people, I fear.

  17. I'm happy for the plumber and his son.
    I hope they manage the money well.

    The getaway has my name written all over it!
    It's just perfect.

    Thanks for the constant support my dear.

    Have a wonderful weekend.


  18. Aww, tiny frog looks so cute! I'd be rather afraid to walk in the forest of Brazil so that I wouldn't step on any of them :) xx Maja
