Simple Pleasures~Tea and Dandelions


Simple Pleasures can come in all forms.  This is the third in a series of those simple pleasures in life.  Who would have thought that dandelions and creeping Charlie, those sometimes pesky weeds, could be so pretty with a cup of tea!

A Beautiful Gift~10th Tea Cup & Mug Exchange


This is the 4th time I have had the honor to participate in  The Enchanting Rose Tea cup and Mug Exchange.  Sweet Stephanie organizes this event most beautifully.  I don't know how she does it, but the matches for the exchange have been wonderful.  My sweet partner in the exchange this year was Celestina Maire of the blog Southern Daydreams.  Her gift really overwhelmed me.  Her generosity and sweet spirit were evident in each perfectly wrapped package.  A true delight for the eyes.

It's that time. . .

Simple Pleasures~Fresh sheets and Square Corners

Several years ago I had asked my husband what really makes him happy and he told me "fresh sheets."  He worked over the road for many years and this simple statement really stuck with me.  I change the sheets on our bed weekly.  Laundering them so they smell fresh and clean always is a top priority.  This simple pleasure continues to please my husband to this day.

A Fiesta Tea Party Ole`

It was a wonderful night for a tea party.  Recently our church in Florida had an international night tea party.  Each table presented a representation of a tea party from a different country.  It was quite a unique array of tea tables.  A good friend and I planned a tea table from Mexico.  Of course, my love for bright colors fit right in with the theme. 

Magnolia~Blessed to be the Recipient of a Giveaway!


I feel quite honored to have been the winner of a magazine subscription giveaway from Marcia of an inspired PHOTOJOURNAL.  Marcia has beautiful photography on her blog and it is a joy to visit. 

Magnolia is such a beautiful magazine.  I am somewhat of a magazine aholic-if there is such a word!  It could not be more perfect.  

Thank you, Marcia!  I am sure she would love to have you come visit.

A Re-purposed plant holder




I have a new favorite thrift store.  I had never been in a Habitat for Humanity thrift store until this last weekend.  There are some wonderful treasures to be found!  Such as this vintage copper with metal flowers plant holder.  It has a wonderful pink chippy patina.  It has found its new home on our coffee table.  Re-purpose at its best!
