Hello My Friends,
My computer is much better now, but it has been just a busy busy week. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
Hello Blogging Buddies,
My computer is not playing well with others today, so I will put her on time out for awhile. I hope she can come out tomarrow.
When I was about 15 years old I went to my first thrift store. My grandma is the one that took me to this wonderful store. I think I might of been in heaven. At 15 I already liked cottage things and had a hope chest also so I would buy things here and there. I found a saucer that day at the thrift store, it is like the plate below. I LOVE this plate. I have moved at least 8 or more times since I was 15 and I still have this plate. I am on the look out to buy more.
OH! I just love this sugar bowl. I signed up with a company and they will email me when they get any of these precious dishes in.
Do you like to go to thrift stores? Please tell me about your first thrift store experience. My husband is not to fond of them, he always says he needs to take a shower after he has been to one. Matter a fact he will NOT go with me at all any more (SO SAD)
I take after my grandma in so many ways, matter a fact I am much more like my grandma on my dads side than I am like my mom. I miss her! She taught me so much about domestic things. She had the best sheets EVER they were percale cotton,she told me at a young age about how to buy sheets. Back then it was just percale cotton no thread count. To this day I can not find sheets like it. Well this post was suppose to be about a special dish I don't know how it got to sheets!
Have a wonderful weekend my dear blogging buddies,
I wanted to tell everyone who prayed for my mother in law thank-you. She is doing so much better! She will be coming home soon.
I enjoyed reading about how everyone got started blogging it was very interesting, thank-you for sharing.
Have a wonderful weekend,
I found these coaster in Palm springs last time we went. I feel in love with them, they are glass so I put them up against these white towel so you could see. They were only 3.99 for 4 and I did need them. One of my best friends bought me this gift, it was one of those
just because gifts. It is SO~~~~~~~~~ ME! I LOVE IT. I thought that was so kind of her to think of me.
I was going to order me some super cute garden shoes with ladybugs on them but I found these at Target and the price was perfect so the ladybug garden shoes will have to wait until I need garden shoes again.
Here are some new pictures of my Hydrangea's. I have the lace cap Hydrangea's
Hello all of my blogging friends,
Once again I am unable to post pictures or spell check because none of it is on the top of the page where you creat a post. Does this happen to you? I would like to ask for prayer's for my Mother inlaw. She is in the hospital with a blood infection. The doctor is concerned that this is not getting better. She is 78 and very weak we can use as many prayers as we can get.
Rhonda at http://rhondisrosecoloredglasses.blogspot.com/ Is having a porch party OH MY you must stop by and see all of these beautiful porches. I do not have a front porch , but I was looking online and I don't now why but this picture just touched my heart. I think it is the simplicity of it, and the beauty of the flowers. Thank-you for letting me share this picture with you.
Guess what I planted? YEP it is true ! I planted 6 of these Boston ivy's to climb on our home. 3 on the side of the house and 3 on the back of the house. I am getting up enough nerve to plant them in the front, but I need to see how these do for about a year. I am not sure what they will look like in Winter. I do know they change color for fall. HEY that means I will get to see the changing of the season's here in California. It was kinda dark out when I took this picture so it is not very clear sorry about that.
Do you have a favorite word? My two favorite words are enchanting cottage.
I just love the way they sound.
E N C H A N T I N G ~~~~~~~C O T T A G E!!! My husband thinks I have issues YOU THINK! When I think of enchanting cottage these are some pictures that come to my mind.
How did you decide on your blog name? I would love to hear your story!
