Honestly,  I had ZERO plans. … Other than I wanted to share about ALL the things I love. And the things I love are my Home, Family, Friends, Animals, Gardening,  Hosting Tea parties, and my Creator….. well, before I knew … Continue reading

Autumn Rose. ..

I think the fall roses are always my favorite. Perhaps because they are richer in color their scents are stronger this time of year.  This is a climbing rose getting ready to bloom again.  It looks like it is floating through the air.  I Just love it. My favorites are Eden roses. What kind of roses do you like? Do you prefer scented? And what about your favorite color?  I hope you have a wonderful day my friend. .. And remember to take time to smell the Roses…

An Outfit For All Seasons

    Anyone who knows me knows I enjoy a little fashion. I use to own many closets filled with clothes, shoes, & accessories when I lived in California.  I’m proud to say that since moving to the coast I’m down to basically 2 very small beachy closets. I still love fashion, however I now am extremely careful what I purchase, & try to donate an item for each item I bring into the cottage. This is really important if you want to impress your friends dont want to end up with all this “stuff” you no longer need, use, or wear. I’m finding that a few items go a long way when you cleverly mix & match. Your friends will think you have soooo many clothes, and when you tell them no you don’t,  but that you’ve learned how to play the mix & match game… They will be soooo impressed!
