I love fresh tomatoes. It's been a hot day for canning. But I won't remember how hot it was today when I enjoy these on a cold winters day. Or maybe I will and I'll look forward to the summer next year. Either way it's a good thing. I'm gonna cool off with a glass of sweet tea now. Have a wonderful week friends.

Looking Forward Glancing Back Continued

I've been trying for days to complete this post, I've just had all sorts of computer problems so I guess one thing I should look forward to is replacing this tired old machine. I still can't get my new pictures to post so for now I'll just add a few old ones.  We are very busy here these days, we have just purchased five boxes of beautiful vintage and antique linens that we will be offering on  Etsy as well as at our shows. The craft table is into autumn with lots of lovely surprises that we will be listing soon. We are very grateful that we are growing and expanding and we will be posting more about that soon.

I do like to look back at this time of the year to remember my brother..We miss him so much but I still keep his little bear near and we keep him with us through our deep love for him and the pleasure of the many wonderful memories that we have of him.  In the post before this one I introduced you to Jasper, my newest Grand Doggie and then remembered that I hadn't properly introduced you to my precious Snowball. This little lady was a feral dog running wild in the neighborhood three years ago. She had been abused and managed to escape from that horrible environment and she just ran everywhere. She was reported as a nuance  dog everyday and had been chased by animal control for a year. I'm very happy to tell you that she joined us on Christmas Eve 2013.  After months of taking my time and feeding her and trying so hard to save her she just all on her own decided to come in and live with us. She is such a Diva now. So sweet and she's had her big girl surgery and all of her shots and we are so blessed to have her. She and Rocky are best friends. I hope to be back in a few days to properly update my blog. Hopefully I will be able to post some new pictures and share some of the projects we are working on.  Have a beautiful weekend.      

Looking Forward Glancing Back

                                                       Welcome Jasper !  This little sweet,bundle of love is my newest Grand Doggie. Jasper came to live with my beautiful  daughter Lisa and Granddaughters Kasey and Megan a couple of weeks ago. He was a rescue and he is just amazing. Now isn't that a precious little guy?

This is a favorite time of the year for me. My bouquet of mint, rosemary and lavender flowers is so soothing and fragrant. There is an abundance of fresh vegetables from local farmers and every where there are birds and squirrels. And sleeping fur babies stretched out in the AC enjoying an afternoon of wild thing dreams. Maybe I'll nap with them just for short time. 

Welcome Spring

I am very pleased to know that today is the first day of spring. It doesn't feel at all like spring here; it is COLD and very damp a...
