SOME THANK YOU'S & A TOUR
I have to show you the lovely surprises I received this week. I won a giveaway from the adorable, talented Korrie at RED HEN HOME. I got to choose something from her Etsy Shop and I chose this lovely Bee Sign. I just adore anything with bees. I love it and it is going in my kitchen. Stop over and see her blog, she does some really nice work. Thanks Korrie!
I won another giveaway from the lovely Julie ( a fellow Ontarian) at JULIES LITTLE HOUSE BLOG. She sent me this beautiful Blue Rose Vintage Tablecloth, which I collect, some old wooden clothes pegs, lovely handmade buttons, a nice coupon holder and a cherished memory. My great-grandfather drank his tea everyday from a green Fire King mug just like the one Julie sent me. It was such a lovely memory that came flooding back when I took it out of the package. Drop by and see Julie she has a sweet blog and she is an avid collector of all things previously loved. Thanks so much Julie.
Let's take a little stroll through the front garden, shall we? Everything is still looking pretty good considering the lack of rain.
The Portellaca is finally blooming, it is the first time I have planted it. They were one of my grandmother's favourite flowers.
I took these photos at sunset. It was so pretty. I like the garden best very early in the morning and at sunset.
Here comes Rufus........
......with Daisy close behind.
These two just love each other. They keep us laughing all the time, well, not about the holes they dig, but everything else is pretty hilarious.
As the sun sets on Mr. Bunny I think I will make a cup of tea and enjoy the rest of the evening on the back porch with my furry darlings.
