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!

Summer Fun

Steps lead up from the driveway through a small arbor
up to the entrance deck of our home.

On the left is a gate .................

.... that brings you to our special oasis.

On these very hot and sticky summer days
we really enjoy our little paradise......our pool.

It is by no means a big pool. No water slides here,
no fountains to splash in................

It is a place to unwind, watch grandkids play,
read a book, or just sit and chat with a
cold drink in your hand........
and of course take a dip, swim a bit and
feel refreshed and invigorated.

The changing cabin lets you get out of a wet bathing suit
unless you are skinny dipping.

A gazebo draped in a wisteria vine is another place
to relax.

Everything you see here was done by Ebbie.

I have a wish and the idea,
he has the know-how and the willingness
to fulfill my dreams.

Thank you with all my heart, my love.

Hubbies next project is to make a table, so
that we can eat here.

To the left of the gazebo is our porch.
It lets you get to the pool also from there.

This little beauty is a hydrangea called Shooting Star.

It graced our table inside in the cold winter month
and is enjoying living by the pool this Summer.

Hope you enjoyed a day at the pool.

God bless,


  1. Very beautiful Evi and it looks so perfect for all those hot summer days we have had this year. I love what you have done with the landscaping also! Have a super day!

  2. Hi Evi, hope all is going well. I have to say we do sure have a lot in common..........I love just about the same things you do. My hubby just built me a darling gate on my deck with a bench so I can enjoy the mornings off of my master bedroom................I also have the same hydrenga but not just one I have three...............I love all forms of them. I also have a wonderful hubby that can take care of all my wants and needs to building things. How lucky are we! Have a great evening. HUGS MARY
