A Dahlia and a very happy bee!

Labor Day is almost upon us! Do you have a special recipe you like to make this time of year – especially for Labor Day, or are you just chilling and not worrying about it? I’m in dire need of a good recipe to make to celebrate a day off for my husband, ha ha… I’ve been out of the loop cooking-wise for the past few weeks… But I found a recipe for something that sounds perfect and extra tasty!

S i m p l y E l e g a n t

What a thoughtful gift to drop off – a nice surprise. As y’all know, I happen to LOVE flowers of all kinds, and orchids are so special. Most require minimum care (at least in my experience) and will bloom again in time (have patience!) – A stunning combo of colors between the leaves and the flowers. This is a small orchid, so I’m giving it ice chips…

Furniture moving can make your space brand new!

This is a snippet of the (original) living room that was previously the dining room… last week we moved the rooms around again – changed the furniture – and it’s like new! This is now the living room again. It’s so refreshing to walk into a space that has been completely transformed. This shot mainly showcases the view of the gorgeous trees and oh! The shadow on the wall from the sunlight on the sheepskin – Love it! Nothing like shopping your own home to find treasures and furniture, paintings etc. to change your views!

Rockport, Maine!

Rockport, Maine

Rockport is a quintessential, 4th of July, all-American, town in Maine. It’s American as apple pie (at least to me, a visitor). Just look at this idyllic setting. What’s not to adore? Of course, this photo was taken (many years ago) during the nicest time of year (September). Not too many people, which is nice – and perfect weather (thankful).

Mozz/Tomato/Basil Salad on the Menu – Happy Weekend!

Well, hello! Happy Saturday – hope you have wonderful plans (which can mean no plans, hehe) for the weekend. I love these colorful frogs – they always seem so happy jumping around. It seems like Fred is always saving frogs from the pool. Scoop them out and they jump right back in 🙄.
