HELLO GORGEOUS;;;;;;;;;;

image Good Afternoon;  So are you all having a wonderful week so far? I hope so,, the weather here is really beautiful, it has been in the upper 80’s blue skies and puffy white clouds…. Yesterday I went to the pool and laid in the sun for a bit then dangled my tootsies in the water,,, which was so yummy,,,,, not too cold….  But today I am staying home,, I am redoing my craft room,,, I brought back my book  Where Women Create….  love that book,, and I was going though it last night and found some great ideas for my room….. So I am off to do some fixing up….. I will take some photos to share with you all…..But for today I have a few photos to share with you from around my home….  I have been finding places for my pretties,,, finally… now I have shared some with you,,, in a later post,, and these are new ones….  OK here we goooooooooooooooooooooooooo--------

Patio flowers 001

This is my sweet hubby’s Gardenia,, it is really blooming,,, he was so excited to wake up this morning and find all of these wonderful smelling blooms…. I am going to get a pretty pot for it this weekend….. it is a dwarf one so it won’t get too big which is perfect for our patio.

Sorry for the bad shot,, but I did try to keep the blinds closed so you could see it.. I hung this in our bed room on the wall between our bath, and closet. it is perfect there… this was my hubbys idea,,  he does come up with some good ones once in awhile….. hehe

This area is in our living room…. it sits across from the patio door,, I love how it reflects the out door light, and in the evening the light from the lamp…

I found this at the Johnny Apple Seed fall craft fair a few yrs ago back home…. I love it…  Its home is on the wall next to my craft room…   I want to make one like this some day,,, it is just a cut up old quilt with some pretties sewed on,,, and a sweet saying….. then framed…

I cherish each one of you…. and treasure each comment you leave….  I am so Blessed to have such wonderful friends whom I have yet to meet….

You sure have been busy and you make me feel like doing more around here! I guess I'm kind of stuck in a rut as far as decorating these days. Don't really have room to keep collecting any more and want to let go of things that just sit in closets and collect dust!
Everything looks lovely and your flowers are gorgeous.

Sorry, I'm working backwards here!! What a wonderful gift you have for arranging things. I am no good at it and it all just ends up looking cluttered! I do love my studio though which is jam packed full of 'stuff' all over. I can go to town in here.
