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!

Sadly I am saying goodbye to Summer.

It seems like it passed me by.
The weather was strange for us on the East Coast.
We had very hot weather and many unusual storms.
It was the wettest Summer ever on record.
That and ill health seemed to prevent me from truly
enjoying  this season.

I am missing all the pretty butterflies already.

Soon all my garden decorations will be put away,
except for the ones that overwinter well.

Hubby covered the pool last weekend......
the water was just getting too cold.

Pillows will  be stored  away in a few weeks......

and flowers will no longer come from the garden.
It truly was a Hydrangea year.

My display of Summer hats will make
room for my mannequin,
which I will dress up for the coming seasons.

Even the straw hat lampshade and the
garden pillow will be changed out.
Yes, it is time to move on.

So, in the spirit of the arrival
of the Fall season, and Halloween,
kitty Sylvester gives you a taste of what is to come.

I hope everyone will have a delightful Fall season.
Stay well and enjoy!


  1. Dear Evy, not that it helps you, -but the summer also passed me by! And also here the weather had a record in raining this year....And yes autumn is here...
    Your garden, looks so beautiful, with all your little friends ,and I totally LOVE your hat-lampshade-and kitty Silvester.
    Hope your back will be well again, Evy.

  2. This summer did pass by quickly and it seems it took a bit of time in coming after a long spring. I know you had a lot of odd weather in your area, so maybe you are looking forward to fall.

    I enjoyed having a peek at your lovely home again! I love your screened in porch and the pool looks heavenly!! What a treat that must be on a hot day!

    Hope your back is feeling better. I have similar problems with mine, but have been doing okay lately.

    Have a good week!


  3. Hello Dear,
    so nice to see you here today. It was one very weird summer for most of us it seems, myself included. Still not sure if I am coming or going these days.

    Hope your health issues will soon resolve or at least improve so that you may enjoy the fall.


  4. I will miss summer, too. We had a mild one but at least it was finally summer after July 4th. Fall is my least favorite season. Let's hope that next year finds us with better weather and better health!

  5. Meine liebste Evi,
    es sieht soooooo traumhaft aus in eurem Garten - ein Paradies!!! Auch der Poolbereich ist einfach wunderschön........davon träumt mein Mann auch noch.......mal sehen, unser Grundstück ist ja nicht so besonders groß. Ja, man könnte schon ein wenig wehmütig werden......bei uns ist es noch sehr warum und geradezu sommerlich, aber die Nächte sind bereits sehr kühl, Nebel bildet sich....herrlich!!! Muss draußen noch ganz viel erledigen, aber dieses Wochenende sind erst mal die Enkelchen da - freu mich auch schon sehr auf die New York Bilder!!! Wie geht es dir, hoffentlich ist der Rücken wieder einigermaßen?!! Ein himmlisches Wochenende und tausend Dank, für all deine lieben Zeilen,

    allerliebste Grüße, bis bald, herzlichst Jade

  6. Wow, love the photos! It's still summer here and I'll be buying my Christmas tree in shorts... Ergo, I live in San Antonio, Texas.

  7. Hi Evi, your new dolls are BEAUTIFUL. Hope you are feeling somewhat better. I am starting to say goodby to summer and putting things away for the winter. I was also not able to get a lot done this summer in the yard due to some weird weather, maybe next year will be better. Take care my friend. Hugs Mary
