We also have a little pond which is more annoying than soothing because we bought a pump that was too powerful for the size, so sometimes I just turn it off.
Do you remember where I live? Here it is.Next to the door there is a planter with two ferns that I had from last summer and I managed to keep them alive inside all winter. They weren’t looking too healthy when they first got out here but now they are thriving. I love ferns and the deer don’t eat them.
Do you have time to join me for a little chat? I’ve got a new teapot and surprise…it’s not blue and white!
Do you want to see my latest bargains? I got these 2 vases recently, thrift shop and yard sale finds, $1 for the striped and $2 for the other one.
I was thinking I could make it look a little cozier out here, so I brought out a cushion for the rocker. It looks pretty but not comfortable at all.
When I started this little blog almost 7 years ago, I hoped it would be a place where people could come and relax, a place where you might get encouraged a little or get an idea of something you could do in your own home. I hoped it would be a place where you could leave feeling refreshed, like you’d had a cup of tea and a chat with a good friend.
The blogging world has changed so much since then. But I still think there is a room for someone like me just to hang out with my friends and talk about whatever is on my mind. I have really missed chatting with you and plan to be here more often. So I hope you’ll come back again.
Do any of you remember any of my summer porch parties? Here is one from 2009. Lots of people joined in that day!
