What do you think about the Gourd Hotel....now taking reservations! This is the perfect place for your feathered friends to weather the winter .
Adorn any entryway with the cheerful sights and splendid colors of a bountiful autumn harvest!
A plaid-clad scarecrow smiles a cheery greeting from amongst his colorful bower of leaves and flowers, welcoming guests with a happy hint of fall.
I think I'll make some apple cider this weekend.

Lush fringes and leopard print decorate a delightfully sassy lamp.
Glowing with an ornate allure, this candle lamp's highlight is a gold shade meticulously crafted with beadwork.
Beautiful burnished reds and oranges comprise the shade of this luscious lamp! When lit from within, the dazzlings beads bring to mind leafy autumn sunshine. Absolutely stunning!
Mini-chandelier votive stand. Uniquely beautiful tabletop stand boasts two hanging votive "chandeliers". Glittering crystals and curving lines delight the eye!
Sparkling "acrylic" crystal drops amid gracefully swooping arms on this distressed finish white metal chandelier. Transform candlelight into a dazzling dance!
This lovely lamp’s shade is bedazzled with gleaming amber beads.
The time. Redeem
The unread vision in the higher dream....
Some days are redeemed by simple pleasures. I had a weekend of simple pleasures; swimming, the flea market, a birthday party, watching my niece and nephews chase fireflies in my grandparents yard; just as my sister and I did so many summers ago! Just simple fun!
Handstands in the pool...doesn't water go up your nose?!
Back to the diving board!
Perfect way to spend the day!
Favorite flea market find of the weekend! Beautiful colors.
Take the gentle path. ~George Herbert

I have a special fondness for tea towels. I have some patterns that I want to embroider this fall.
This set is so cute, I love teacups and saucers, they are such a fun thing to collect.
My grandmother always carried a hankie. I love them, too!

I just love this table because it is so versatile! You can use it beside a bed or in a foryer, you can place it next to a favorite chair to hold a cup of tea while you indulge in a great book (we have some recommendations in our bookstore if you're looking for something new) or do some handwork. I love to knit and needlepoint, too.
Hope your week is off to a good start. It's hot and raining in LA (Louisiana) today. A good day to stay in and read or needlepoint! Maybe later.....

It is a bird, not sure what kind. Do you know? Wish that I had the digi camera. The camera on my blackberry doesn't zoom as good as I needed for this shot....She disappeared inside the chimney!
Well hello in there! 3 sweet babies! I took my digi camera back a couple of days later, but the nest was empty!
Have a great weekend!

Hope you had a great weekend. We were super busy. Friday night we had a date and went to the movie and dinner! Fantastic fun!
Saturday morning we decided to go to one of our favorite fishing destinations. I was hoping to catch a bunch of blue crabs, I'm just not patient enough to fish, lately!!! We had a great time. The moon was full, we made a campfire and cooked outside. The man grilled chicken breasts and baked sweet potatos, we had wine and french bread to complete the meal! It was yummy!
We didn't get in until late last night, so I'll have to download my pics this afternoon and show you later.
I've been gathering supplies for a few projects. Hope to get started this week. I'll show you soon!

The Sunflowers brought so much joy! Now they are feeding the birds! We have lots of birdfeeders for your garden; hope you find one that suits you and your guests! If you'd like a birdhouse we have those, too!
Wishing you a great Pink Friday!
All my best...

Can you believe that today is the first day of July? This year is going by too fast! We are making plans for a B-B-Q with the family for the 4th! Looking forward to the good food....and then going fishing Saturday! Should be a great weekend.
Did you have a chance to try the oatmeal raisin cookies? They are vanishing fast over here!
What are your plans for this holiday weekend?

Did you have a chance to relax this weekend? I did a little treasure hunting and went to the fruit stand. We spent a little time at the book store and had a cookie with coffee. The cookie was so good I decided to go home and bake some! I added some dates in with the raisins. They were so YUMMY!
It rained on and off most of the weekend. But, my flower gardens need it so bad; I didn't mind much. It made the weeds easy to pull!Have a great week!
