Celebrate MOM~


This week the focus is on us Moms,
with a force so powerful,
we set the tone in the home.

Let's start the morning on the porch...
the birds are singing,
a gentle breeze is dancing among the flowers,
and the butterflies are putting on a show.

Please sit and share a cup of tea with me.

Thank you, MOM for all you do
to feather and fluff your nest.


(hope you take the time to click-enlarge each
picture to experience the rich textures and vibrant colors)



The fruit of kindness adorns your domain.
Special little touches of comfort and beauty
tucked into every nook and cranny.


When you finish your tea we'll
move onto the deck for brunch,
a special setting for a special lady.

We are all different, with varied talents,
but together we make a lovely arrangement
just like this one on the table.


Have a delicious Thursday, all you
pretty peachy people.

Anyone up for a game of croquet?

If not, check with Susan...

for your next visit.

Hope you leave with a smile in your heart

Oh My Goodness! I love your porch and your deck and your decor on both of them! Love the milk bottle carrier with flowers too. I did enlarge the pictures, and it was such a feast for my eyes! laurie

I definitely am leaving with a song in my heart. All these posts of yours I just read are wonderful. First of all your porch is sooo welcoming and cozy and your table setting and flowers are...well, so beautiful and relaxing. What more could you want? Love those peaches.

Your family history is incredible. The collar and picture just bring it all to life. And the Holberg music collection is priceless. I can't imagine what it must have felt like to listen to your son playing. Thank you for sharing this. Have a wondrful day tomorrow. xoxo Nancy
