Happy Shabby Sunday!!
First up are these shabby white doll chairs. See the little rose appliques on the backs.
You can never have enough of these pink milinery forget me nots.
And finally is this shabby white doll dresser. I lined every drawer with vintage paper, and added a pretty chandelier crystal.

Around my neighborhood

Went out with my youngest, Alex yesterday on a little photography expedition. We both took turns with the camera!! He had a blast, as did I. He was talking about photography to his brothers at the table during dinner tonight. We had spaghetti tacos!
These are from the very end of our lake right before it goes over a little waterfall and into a field of cows.
I wanted to get some close ups of these gorgeous water lilies, but can't get close without going in!!
So I used the zoom as far as I could.

This is a hydrangea just starting to bloom. I love hydrangeas, they are everywhere in Connecticut. This one is right in my front garden under my living room window.
And of course Echinacea Purpurea. These things spread like weeds after a few years, but they are still pretty! Now if I could just get the little bugs to stop chewing on them.

This is one of Alex's photographs. I love it. He thought it was cool that the sky was peeking through the trees.
I am so glad that he is home for summer vacation. I don't like being out of work right now with my back, but I am thankful that I get to spend some time with my boys!!

This was taken from our dock looking over the diving board. I like how the sun is just going down over the hills.

This is our view going up the lake toward the North. You can see the Kalmia Latifolia on the right side. The little flowers are so cute close up. Little pink blossoms with tiny red dots inside each one. They are the Connecticut State flower.

Happy Pink Saturday

We never lived anywhere for very long when I was a kid. The longest we ever lived somewhere was 3.5 years. The shortest was about 5 months, and there were a couple of places that were only 6 months each. When I was in the fifth and sixth grade we lived in Pacific Beach Washington. It was a very small community lots of logging, and shake mills, and that sort of thing. But I loved it. I think Washington State was one of my favorite places that I lived in. There was always so much to do. My family used to take lots of trips to Seattle and places like Blake Island...which by the way has the best salmon feast I have ever tasted in my life. Anyway on my 11th birthday my family took me to Seattle for a day of fun at an amusement park and sightseeing and shopping. That day was the first time I ever rode on a rollercoaster. My friend Rhonda Tarr came with me. Oh boy did we have fun. I got the big pink seashell below that day. The rest are pretty shells I have collected over the years, but the big pink one is always my favorite!! And it doesn't hurt that it is my favorite color.

Happy pink Saturday

p.s. I am thinking about going out to Washington State next summer for the Farm Chicks show. If anyone reading this has ever been please email me got some questions for ya.
