I do believe I can smell those particular roses just by looking at them. What a beautiful photo! Mary


What beautiful roses! Enjoy yourself!


Gorgeous roses! My yard is a barren wasteland at the moment due to construction! I am living vicariously thru you!


Taking time to smell the roses, includes enjoying Turkey Feathers.

Wonders Never Cease

What lovely roses!
And yes we are too! Fall will be here soon enough. We must gather the rosebuds while we can!


I know I'm a couple of days late on this one, but your peasant blouse brings back memories! My friend and I went shopping over the last weekend, and my splurge was a similar top, in a print, that brought back memories of the raglan sleeved, gathered tops I also made when I in my early teens. I ordered a pattern in my current size to make some, and a few pieces of sale fabric over at Hancock's of Paducah's web site. I don't know if it's some kind of menopause deal or what, but I've also been riding my bike allot, eating Popsicles, and doing other simple things I enjoyed in my childhood. (?) If the pattern works out, I would also like to make a white one with embroidery on it---another thing I did tons of as a kid. I hope you are enjoying your summer---Brenda.

I love your sight, I have a dresser almost identical to the one the pheasant blouse is hanging on in your picture, it also has the little wheels, it was my grandmas first piece of furniture, and as the first married granddaughter she gave it to me, I have been offered over $350 for it...but it is never for sale!


Congratulations on having a Brilliante blog. You can find full details of this award on my blog.
