A pretty apron!

 Isn't this a pretty thing?  This apron is reversible and has been made by a 83 year old lady recently.  My husband insists they said she was 93 years old. I don't have a good memory but whichever age she is....this is stellar!  I loved it.

I wanted you to see this clever pocket. Quite large and the way it is sewn....is like a pocket on top of a pocket. Or...2 pockets in one pocket.  The reverse side has two pockets also.  I think it is just  so nice.

What did you say?

What do you mean, get out of the suitcase?  I'm so comfy. The grand-boys don't mind cat hair.
Don't you need to go name miss bunny?  I thought so, see you later mum. xoxo, Violet.

A pretty little face...

 Miss Bunny comes to live with me.  Isn't she cute?  I think so and she only cost a quarter!  Woo hoo.

Summer, at home...

A favorite summer lily.  Maybe done blooming now...not sure.  My husband has been the gardener, and done a great job.  In spite of the  heat.  Our daughter and grandsons are coming...oh happy day! Can't wait to visit with them. =)

 Pretty dishes are definitely my cup of tea.  Calm and comforting!  And tea has a vast variety of choices to choose from.  Its funny though....I always seem to go back to my old favorites.  Lady Grey and Chamomile among a few others.


I love this flower and cannot think of the name of it for love nor money.  We brought home two big pots of it from Lowe's...reduced in price, what a sweet deal!  Its looking like rain here today. & Overcast and moody.

 Our cat, Violet....has fallen fast asleep while looking out of the window watching chipmunks scamper across the patio.  She used to be a mighty 'hunter' before moving indoors.  Hope  you are having a pleasant day....not to many more days left in July.  July seems like the queen of summer to me.  And the month of August rich yet with a tinge of 'good-bye' in it. Does August make you feel like the summer is winding down ?

'But his delight is in the law of the Lord: and in his law doth he meditate day and night'  Psalms1:2  Who better to think about?  =)

Things I love....

 Everything that God creates is so full of beauty and wonder.  My husband has been total gardener this year and his diligence is paying off now.  He still keeps an eye out for bargains and gathers when and where he can.  Often Lowe's will have racks of very reduced flowers at the back of the outdoor section.


I treated myself to the currant issue of 'Catster'.  I have simply inhaled almost every article. It only comes out every other month.  I think I'm going to subscribe.  Extravagant me. =)

Sunday blessings

'The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.' Proverbs 10:22

(meaning, all worldly things bring care and sorrow, where as they who feel the blessings of God have none)
