Welcome To My World!

I am so happy that you have stopped by for a visit!

It is here that I will try to share with you my creations, a bit of my home, my gardens and what inspires me.

Periodically, I will feature those dolls and creations that are available for purchase on my other blog:


Thank you for visiting!
I hope you enjoy your stay here!

You are probably wondering....
two posts so close together....
Well, my friend Laura@52 flea
came to visit me to teach me a new way of posting.

I am so bad with learning new things on the computer,
but today a thought I will conquer my fear and do the
second part of this post by myself.

By the way, this and other foxgloves came from out of no-where.
I have not had foxgloves in my garden for at least ten years.
What a happy surprise!

So here is part two of  of my garden tour.
The Balcony  Geranium's on the front deck are spectacular.
I love them mixed with the Diamond Frost and white Bocopa.

The pale yellow day lilies look so pretty in front of the pink and blue hydrangeas.

Lacecap hydrangeas are some of my favorites,
especially white ones.

The fountain is delightful  with it's soothing sound.

Our beloved kitty Mousie rests in the garden.
right now there is cat mint growing all around him.

This has been a hydrangea year.
Maybe it had something to do with this very cold winter we had.

Gardening is one hobby that makes me very happy.
For all of you fellow gardeners and would- be gardeners,
I think you can understand, that seeing flowers grow.....
seeing little humming birds feast and chipmunks frolic,
pretty butterflies fluttering all around,
is one of Gods greatest gift.
You might even forget, that weeding is not sooo much fun!

Thanks for coming along,

God bless,

Daisies make me happy!

And so do hydrangeas!

Pretty hostas are growing up in between the pavers.

This is a Shooting Star hydrangea.

And here is my beloved rabbit with Corsican mint.

One of my favorites is the lovely Lace Cap hydrangea.


Hubby and I decided that it was time to have some fun.

We live in a scenic area on the beautiful Hudson River.
Not too far from us is a diners paradise, and what is
nicer than to sit in the shade at a great restaurant.

Before we had our delicious lunch, we strolled around
and enjoyed the scenery.

You can take a little cruise on this boat up the Hudson.
We will try that another time.

I love all the ducks. They seem very happy here.

It looks funny to see things growing out
of these pilings.

It was not easy to pick the restaurant with so much to choose.
We made a great choice and enjoyed a wonderful meal.

The sight of the boats was so relaxing.
We just kept watching the goings-on on the river.
On the weekend it is very crowded and you don't have time
to enjoy it all.

So the weekday prooved perfect.

It was fun to see all the boats go by on
this very hot day.

Right at this moment I could have been happy to own
any of theses boats.

A girl can dream........

These ducks had the right idea......just chill out!

She ....... or maybe he....... looks content.......
just like us two birds.

After lunch we looked at some of these lovely murals.
They looked so real....it felt es if you could touch the people.

Whoever painted these, did a wonderful job.
So much detail.

Hope you had fun coming along.

God bless,
