Welcome Spring !!!


                                                                                 

Hi Everyone,

Well tomorrow is the big day! Over the past year many times I've seen postings of pictures from my all time favorite book Seasons At Seven Gates Farm. I ordered my copy way back when it was first published and you can tell how I have enjoyed it if you see the wear to the cover. I thought there would be no better way to welcome in the first day of Spring than by posting some pictures of the greenhouse and gardens from the book.
                                                                                

                                                                                 









I just adore the wash house.



Just the spot for brunch!
All of the pictures above are from Seasons at Seven Gates Farm, the best decorating book ever!

Now I did get to stop at a garage sale today and found just a few treasures. My pictures didn't turn out well but I'll be posting again early next week and try to get some better ones.
                                                                            
I never can turn down a bench for any reason, even a small one. I also found a couple pieces of vintage rhinestone jewelry. I love vintage jewelry.



This is a huge starfish; I'll find a spot for him!!



A great vintage necklace!


                                                                         
                                                    And a pair of my favorite linens, sweet vintage embroidered pillowcases.

I have to work tomorrow which makes me sad because I look forward to spring cleaning this dark old house and bringing in some fresh, pleasant spring air. I'll get a start this afternoon and finish next week. I hope you all have a warm sunny day.  Welcome Spring!

Thank You Whisper Wood Cottage

                                                                                 

I hope everone is enjoying a pleasant pre- spring warm up like we are having. We have really had some lovely days and the weekend forcast is looking good. Even if I do have to work on Saturday it's still going to be a fantastic warm day.

I also want to say thank you to WhisperWood Cottage! My blog was posted as a feature follower last weekend! If you haven't visited Whisper Wood Cottage you must stop by for a visit. It was one of the first blogs that I started following and I've enjoyed many wonderful visits there.

Thank you ALVN! I look forward to your posts always.


                                                                                 

I also want to apologize for some comments that were left here; a few months ago I started getting comments from some unknown person that appeared to be just symbols of some sort. I didn't think anything of it; I just thought it was some kid playing around BUT I found out that this is some jerk from Tiawan that has some sort of porn site and I have no idea how or why they were in my blog and I hate to think what the comments were if I could have read them. I've tried to go back through and get them all deleted. I am so sorry and I do hope no one was offended by it. I'm still searching to make sure that I haven't missed anything.

Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone know if there is anyway to keep them out?

I also want to thank all of my followers and everyone that visits here. I love reading your comments and visiting your blogs. It is a joy to get to know you and I look forward to logging on each day and visiting my favorite blogs.
                                                                             
Happy Saint Patrick's Day to all!

Happy Solstice

I hope everyone is having a beautiful day and celebrating the beginning of summer. She arrived just after a long week of heat and ...
