My computer is fine but our server has a problem..so I am on line only a short time and then...poof...kicked to the proverbial curb! So..I will have to catch up as I can..I am falling behind on my visits...I HATE that! I do!! I hate missing anything...always have! :)

This is the beautiful mosiac flower pot that Penny from
THE COMFORTS OF HOME/LAVENDAR HILL STUDIO made for me. I am so happy with it. It is a match for my beautiful house number..and has helped make my front porch a joy!

I just love it! And...it is huge. I put a large fern in it for now but that will change shortly. I need to buy the plants but I was in such a rush to get it posted that I couldn't wait.

Another view of my ~smile~ beautiful mosiac flower pot!

I took this so you can see our lovely house number again..and how it goes so perfectly with my gorgeous flower pot!

I am ONE HAPPY CAMPER! (I mean blogger!)
Thanks you so much Penny! I so appreciate your talent and the care you took in making this for me!

Love and hugs,


  1. Great sitting area you have on your patio. Wicker chairs always add such charm and seem to welcome people in to sit and relax.

  11. What a pretty flower pot. I imagine you must have a very large abode in order to fit in all those items you keep showing us. I hope you have, because I love looking!
    Blessings, Star

  12. Oh Mona! It looks wonderful on your porch with the fern in it! I love seeing where my "babies" go when they leave the nest. I am so humbled and honored that you wanted some pieces of my mosaics in your home. You are so sweet!

  13. The Blue Ridge Gal...Thanks, Di! I have worked hard to try and make that darned porch inviting! :)

    Crystal Rose Cottage...Server problem, we think, is solved. However they have said that before! :)
    So far..we are still online..thank heavens. I can't wait to get some new plants for it. This pot is SO big...and I have none that size! It's great!

    Shelia...Good grief..I think I have been misspelling your name!! Darn it anyway! I am glad you like my lovely flower pot. My porch is a work in progress as is the back patio..

    Rebecca... :) Thanks so much..what do you mean by "prefab?" As in NOT hand made? Hmmm...

    Domestic Designer...I always smile when I see your blog name! :) Thank you so much for your compliment!

    Kathleen Grace... Thank you so much! I love Penny's creations...and am slowly getting the things I wanted from her.

    Happy To Be....Thanks Gloria...:)
    I'm glad you like the fern..but it overpowers my pot!

    Barb~Bella Vista...Thank you so much, Barb...you are so darned sweet!

    bj...Yes..she certainly is! :)

    Shelia...I know...I get all carried away..but my bloggy friends are so important in my life. LOVE 'em!

    Star...LOL ..this house is tiny by most people's standards. It is approximately 1600 sq. feet is my guess. One floor...a little tract home that has had a large great room added. We have two large sheds out back, six overhead units added to the garage..and we are planning on a third shed.
    I give lots to my children...it's a constant turnover...out with the old..and in with the new...

    Penny... Aw..thank's Penny! I do love my new things from you and am looking forward to my new teapot lamp for the living room. Floor lamp goes behind the chair...Little teapot lamp right out front for all to see! :)

  14. Oh Mona, what a treat to have some of Penny's beautiful talent right there in your very own home! I love your pretty flower pot and your house sign too!


  15. I adore all things handcrafted but I have to tell you, this ladies work is just beautiful. I do love how you tied your house numbers to your pot. You'll have to do more as you go and makes it all up nicely with touches here and there. Love it Mona... love it.

  16. Oh I love it! I love her things! So pretty :)

    All the best,
