New finds……


Today I am sharing a couple of new goodies

I found for the living room.

The first item is this fur I placed on the ottoman.

So incredibly soft……

The second item is this chippy shutter I found at the antique market a few weeks ago.

I love the narrow size….it fits the wall just perfectly!

It’s going to be a scorcher!


The beautiful weather we had

last week has passed and the heat is back!

Today it is going to be 100* and we are under a heat advisory!

It was nice to have a break though even if only for a week!

Peaceful Sunday……


old chapel, near trees and maybe mountains - attended a lovely wedding there



I wish I were dancing
Floating across the floor
He is wearing a suit
I, a gown
The music, sweet and melodious
Finds me twirling in a fantasy land
Filled with happiness
His warm embrace
Tickles my senses
And my heart surges forward
And then
As I am looking into his eyes
Searching every corner of his perfect soul
I stop
And realize that I'm not in a ballroom
Not in a gown
I'm just standing, staring into his eyes
And I'm dancing

The weather here this

week has been absolutely beautiful!!!!

I only wish we could have one week like this a month.

It would sure make the scorching

summer temperatures a lot more tolerable.

A finishing touch……

I picked up two sets of sconces while at the antique market last week.

I really had no intention of buying them

but they were such a good deal I just couldn’t resist!

I started off with the smaller set but the seller offered me such a good deal

on the bigger set too that I decided to buy all of them.

I had no idea where I was going to use them when I bought them

but I knew I would find a spot for them.

I decided to use one in the dining room under the ironstone platters.

I think it adds a nice finishing touch?

I have another spot in mind for the other sconce that matches this one.

I haven’t decided where the larger set will go yet?!?!

Peaceful Sunday……




Love means the warmth of the sun,
the aroma of a rose,
the breeze of the sea,
but as you can see
it never means the same for anyone.
Love acquires its true meaning
by experiencing it for the first time
because only then can you define it.

~Nestor Gallardor
