Today I'm joining Chari over at
Happy to Design for her
I will give her link at the bottom.
I first wrote this back in the Fall when we
were having a spell of rainy weather.
Well... we will be having a few stormy days
again and it made me think of this post.
It is the beginning of our tornado season here
in Texas. Something I don't look forward to.
You can go here to read about my
experience with tornadoes.
It's another rainy day here in North Texas.
A very good day to curl up and
read a good book or blog...
(or two... or three.......).
So, If you don't mind...
I thought I would show some brighter decorating this time. Not that I don't LOVE the warm and cozy Autumn colors.
The following pictures were taken before my
dining room fell into Fall!
All I need is a cup of tea and biscuits.
The dining table was moved so that I
could show you the china hutch.
This is my Spring dish collection.
That green display stand is from
HomeGoods. Love that store!
This silk flower arrangement was a gift...
From my dear friends at Ethan Allen in
Northern California, near the Nappa Valley.
It was given to me at my farewell party
when we were moving to Texas.
Here are some of my Mary Engelbreit
pretties. Do any of you like ME?
The Garden Angel is by Jim Shore and was given to me by my daughter Angie. Her wings fell off... so I guess she is a "fallen angel"!?
DD also gave me the Mary Engelbreit
(ME) grandmother cup,
before her daughter was born.
The cat represents my yellow cat Norton.
He was big and acted more like a dog
than a cat. He followed me everywhere.
I lost him to the Coyotes in California.
This is a favorite picture.
"When a child is born,
so is a grandmother"
I bought another ME picture in our little
town's gift shop in Rancho Murieta, Ca.
(Before we moved to Texas)
It is a private golf community and is built
on a game reserve... or is it a preserve?
It was full of deer, wild turkeys, bobcats,
rattlesnakes, AND coyotes!
The shop owner was an artists and
she painted the flowers on the matting
before she framed it.
Anyway... My tea is brewed so...
back to my afternoon
of relaxing and reading.
Now... where are my glasses?
Now don't forget to go visit Chari
over at Happy to Design.
Thank you Chari for hosting
this weekly event.
