It's beautiful outside today, but way too hot for this
girl.  I've been spending some time
cleaning my bedroom
and making a switch from
Spring to Summer.

I've changed out my linens and and tossed on
my favorite white chenille spread.
Love the vintage feel.

Over my windows I've hung some branches
and some of my
Origami Bird Garlands.

I've taken advantage of the
Memorial Day
sales and have purchased a new

My old one was on its last leg, it kept over heating
and shutting down.
  Every day I thought it
could be its last.

Now that that little task is done,
it's time for me to follow Chaos' lead
and take it easy.

Happy Memorial Day!

Yesterday in the bank 
the lady in front of me was sporting
the cutest pink hat.
I was carrying my favorite PINK tote.
When she turned around and saw me she said
"today must be the day for pink".
For me...
everyday is a good day for PINK!

How could you ever go wrong 
with a little

I have always been a lover of Pink,
as I get older
I love it more and more.

These days you can get almost anything in Pink.

I dream of having a Pink vintage truck
for the garden.

 What FUN would this be?

Yes Pink is the color for me.


I'm going to continue to follow 
Barbie's lead.
After all, it has "worked" for her
for many many years.

It's window box time!

Last year, for the very first time
I had window boxes.

This year I started them
back in March.
I pulled out my red geraniums
that had wintered in the 

By April they were starting
to get some green
on them.

 Now that it's May
I've placed them outside my window.
They are
 filling out nicely.

Can't wait to see them in bloom.

Happy Gardening!

The garden is ablaze with
Love In The Mist.

What started as a tag along plant
that came with some Yarrow a friend gave me
has become a sea of blue
this time a year.
The Yarrow didn't make it
but the Love In The Mist
is going wild.

It looks great growing in between the
mini pink roses.
After it blooms I pull out much of it 
but save some seeds for the
following year.

Happy Gardening!

This past weekend I headed to
 Fayettville Tennessee
to visit my folks for 
Mother's Day.
On the way down I stopped off at my favorite
garden statuary shop.
Picked up this little sleeping beauty,

as well as this standing kitten.

I've named my garden 
"The Catbird Garden"
so I'm always on the lookout
for fun cat statues.

Happy Gardening!

My brother Rick and Terry his wife were
 visiting this past weekend.
Saturday morning we decided to drive up to
the Biltmore Estate
and spend the day.

What a great trip!
The house was beautiful as usual, 
but I have no photos 
to show, for they don't allow photography
 in the house.
We couldn't have visited at a better time, 
the festival of flowers
was in progress
and every room 
was decked 

The grounds were lovely as well.

The roses were all in bloom, 
but not at their peak.

My favorites are the rooms of the
So much lushness.

Everything perfect for Mother's Day visitors.

Well that's my tour.

Have a good week.

I haven't seen that much of the world,
 but of what I have seen,
Isola Bella
 in Northern Italy 
 is the most beautiful place
in the world.

You approach by water because it is an island.
 My first view was of the palace side.
 and it is beautiful to be sure.

But then...
I saw the GARDEN.

This is what I imagine Heaven to be.

From every spot ,
the view is breathtaking.

You are surrounded by beauty 
and lushness.

Every turn surprises and delights.

If you ever get the chance to visit
don't pass it up.
