At 1:15 this morning, I was out of bed for a potty call..read a bit of my novel..(A Royal Duty) and then could not get to sleep so off I went to the kitchen to make coffee.
Is that nuts or what?
The photo is of my daughter, Sandy, when she was very, very ill.
I watched a bit of "The Office" on my Kindle and was even more wide awake.
..so decided to do a post. I'm finishing it tonight.
Yesterday I went out and picked roses from my arbor. "America" makes such a lovely bouquet! So pretty in the family room. By this time next year..the one I planted by the back patio will be to the top also. LOVE these roses.
I buy mine through Heirloom Roses.
I happened to finally get around to looking at this book I found at a garage sale. It was worth every penny of the 50 cents I paid for it.
Yep..you talk about inspiration. I should have saved this post for Marty's Tuesday party. :)
This is how I would like my patio to look! I had a choice of the brick or flagstone..I wanted brick, PH wanted flagstone.. brick is so cozy looking. I actually laid my own footpaths of red brick and patio area at my other home..I loved it. Garden patio's are easy and fun. Well..they USED to be easy. I am beginning to struggle with things like that now.
The flagstone is nice...but just LOOK at this!
Just click on the picture to ENLARGE for a stunning peek!!
And look at this porch! It's the painted ceiling that really caught my eye.
This is exactly my style. Now if I can just create it!
Sooo sweet! Look at that tiny window in butter yellow!
This is just the neatest book for idea's. Now every morning I join PH on the patio and drive him crazy with my "million ideas." He is handling it better and better..but my constant projects really did get to him at first. He said "Do you ALWAYS have to have a project??"
I said yes. TWICE!
We are still getting to know one another. Sometimes I am not sure there are enough years left. I have to tell you, the man treats me like a queen. Just soooo nice.
But we have fun! We are learning.
Off to bed.
See you on Wednesday!
I hope you found something you liked in the pictures.
