come on in...

Hi all...how was your weekend?

Mine was spectacular:

the roses and peonies are in bloom,

we have a  new grandbaby,

my roses are blooming,

we managed to get a load of furniture painted,

and did I mention that

my roses are blooming?

I have been sprucing up my blog


adding some page elements...(those tabs under my header)

For this week's posting, I am going to post one of the 

pages...it has all of the links in one place.

I thought it might be helpful 

for the new readers 

that may not know me.

I hope to get some pictures 

of the roses and peonies later today.

Oh, and here is one more baby picture...indulge me,


Have a great week...be back soon.


come on in

We've lived in this house for 15 years now


I'm on round 2 of decorating.

I love creating beauty in the everyday things around me.

My current style love is a jumbled up mix of:
shabby, romantic, primitive, romantic, farmhouse,

with a touch of victorian.

And  ViNtaGe.

The more vintage the better.

We'll go room by room


 I'll keep adding links as I cross off my projects.

You share all the baby pictures you want to share! It's so nice to see her sweet, little face and your wonderful home. Wish I could sit and chat - and hold your sweet little grandbaby - for a bit!

P.S. - I'll be sharing (and bragging about!) my new, little granddaughter in a couple of months. It's OK to be proud of these precious little ones who come straight from the arms of the Father!
