A Sweet New Month

    “Life is a journey and LOVE makes that journey worth while.” ~anonymous   💕Happy February, Sweet Friend!💕             Let me share my romantic little dresser with you. remember the one that returned home with me last week…  read more             I’m happy that it fits into a small corner in the cottage bath.     Last months efforts of evaluating what I no longer needed,     loved, felt was beautiful or     had simply outgrown, has paid off with my feeling much more organized.     Clearing out those items that cluttered the space around me     believing that this year is a continuous “work in progress”… change will be the sweetest and most exciting way to express myself.   In the words of Mother Teresa, who said she didn’t do great things but little things … Continue reading

Just Another Week in Paradise

“Take care to keep open house: Because in this way some have had angels as their guests, without being conscious of it” ~Hebrews 13:2 I’ve been meaning to share with you a chair that I saw a few weeks ago.

The Garden Lady

I’m thinking that the first women’s group I ever joined was in second grade. The group was called Bluebirds. I loved that little group. I can’t remember why I wasn’t in it for very long.  Anyway since then, there have been a variety of women’s groups I’ve participated in.  The groups vary, just as the women I’ve met who participated in them. The range being from down to earth groups, to more privileged clubs. And have included everything in between. I enjoy women’s friendships very much, and know from personal experience that these friendships have helped me grow. Recently I met an amazing lady. I refer to her as my Garden Lady friend. The Garden Lady is inspiring. Weighing little more than perhaps a hummingbird. (metaphorically speaking…grin) Her diminutive size is deceiving however. And, similar to the sweet hummingbird has little to do with how she seems to float effortlessly through what I’d consider hard work. One … Continue reading
