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!

Hooray, my favorite magazine arrived.
I started to read the introduction page.
The editors were writing about how it is important
to take time to enjoy the simple things,
time to relax.
And so I had my aha-moment.
I seem to be in constant motion with all that goes
with a household.......family, garden and doll making...
Time out to relax !!!!!

Since we had just celebrated my girlfriend
Debbie's birthday, there was cake in the house.
I decided to take it, a cup of tea and the
magazines to one of my favorite spots.
Lets make it special I thought....
pillows and tablecloth....just for me.

I love the pillows, since I love gardening.

This pretty cup holds wonderful memories.
It was my Dad's most loved cup.
It is quite old and the porcelain is very thin.
He insisted the coffee tasted best out of this cup.
So what more could a girl want, her Dad's beloved cup,
a nice slice of cake and her favorite read.

Behind me bees swarmed around the hydrangeas.

I loved this time alone.

Oops, thought I changed that, oh well, you get
the picture.

This issue had beautiful garden pictures....
and, how funny, bathroom pictures.
That after we just did ours.
Oh well, love mine just as much!

The next time....and there will be a next time...
I will pick another pretty spot.
Maybe this one.......

or the bench on the deck.......

or the chaise in the porch......

but this I know, I will make time again.

To everyone who has left me such nice comments
and has not heard from me, I am having computer
problems....some comments seem to go out, others not.

I am sorry, I am thinking of you!
Waiting for my computer guy to bail me out .....again!

God bless,


  1. Evi, you have so many wonderful places to realx. You are a fortunate woman...I would take any one of them. Hope you get your computer fixed soon.

  2. Evi, it looks lovely. I'd love to spend time relaxing in this beautiful setting.

  3. it looks as though you have many wonderful spots to sit, sip, relax and read...how I envy that!!!

  4. Dear Evi, you live just as beautiful as the Places shown in Jeanne Dàrc living-what a wonderful garden.I just bought the mag,yesterday to read on my way home from Copenhagen.a lovely magazine.
    Happy summer to you.

  5. Hello Evi, glad to see you took some time just for yourself, and all looks so pretty.
    I try each day, if its good weather, to have a large cup of tea and sit in the garden to enjoy what we've created.
    Tortue, one of my cats enjoys it too as she now expects to have some milk from a little dish.
    Love to you.

  6. Your home could be IN the magazine. You sure have some lovely places to rest your weary self.....I'd have a hard time picking my favorite. Must be hard to pull yourself away.
    Stay cool my friend! and happy reading!


  7. I agree with Carole...with all those lovely little havens you've created I am sure I will see one of those spots gracing a magazine very soon!


  8. They all look like the perfect spot to partake of the magazine's beautiful pages...
    Hope you are well and enjoying the Summer.

  9. hi evi,
    dieses magazin würde mich auch ansprechen. da sind ja wundervolle dinge darin. deine fotos, die du da zeigst, laden wirklich zum entspannen ein....ich hoffe es geht dir gut und sende dir herzliche grüsse aus niederösterreich

  10. Hi, First time stopping by but I will certainly be back. Your blog is lovely and yes you do have several places to relax. It is nice the hot summer hasn't driven you in to relax. Each of your corners look more relaxing then the other. A cop of tea and a goodie with a mag. tucked in sounds devine.

  11. Hi, I have been looking at your posts, and have really enjoyed your blog.
    I was looking at this one where you have your favorite magazine in it. I could not make out the name of the magazine. I think I would really enjoy subscribing to it. Please let me know what the name of it is.
    Thank so much,


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I love to hear from you!
