Something Sweet

As summer winds down I enjoy the last bits.  A lone hummingbird drinks in the sweetness.

Beauty shines brightly
in the little jewels
 of the garden.

As I sit quietly and observe, this little lizard darts across the path.  I wonder if this little creature realizes that soon the weather will turn cold so he must enjoy the sun while he can.

The last roses of the summer cast an intoxicating scent and their velvety leaves beckon me to come closer.

As summer whispers good bye, I savor all the beauty that God has put before me today.

Tea Party Delight

What'cha up to?

Today something special came in the mail.  Shannon sent me these wonderful (and very delicious) cookies.

So I decided to make it a bit special and I had
a little tea party.
  Just me, myself, and I.
I set the table with pretty china
and a lovely tablecloth,

and of course a favorite new magazine to look at while I enjoyed my tea and cookies.

Sometimes it feels so good to be nice to yourself.

It makes everything seem that much more special.
Thank you Shannon for the Kukee's (cookies).
I hope you go visit Shannon (here).
She has a lovely blog.

I wish you joy today.

What's Old is New Again

Hello friends.  How are you today?  Thank you all for your visits and sweet comments lately.  If I haven't responded to your comment, please forgive me as life has been busy for me. I wanted to share something with you.

I found this antique glass front cabinet.  It has a wonderful worn and weathered patina on it and is great for displaying some of my favorite things.  I was so excited to find it and knew it would be perfect in my home.  Would you like to see some of the things inside?

It's been so much fun filling the cabinet.  Everything in there I already had with the exception of the china doll head (she is new to me).  I get such satisfaction switching things up in my home.  It gives new life to my "stuff".   I know that I'll probably be rearranging things often and that for me is the fun part.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
