Even though it is still high summer (let's cling to it because we love it, okay?) there was a nip in the morning air while Bill and I were talking, drinking coffee, and praying. Once again, I must say that my butterfly wing shawl is the best thing I have EVER knit. I made it in the summertime with Brown Sheep wool. It was a delight to knit with the pretty variegated colors. You know that I have made several wonky items with my needles and yarn, so I like very much to revel in my one success! (Actually, I made a lovely Alan Dart mouse that I'm proud of!)
I had seen this lovely lamp somewhere online. Magic Cabin has it on sale right now for $15 and it was originally $49.95. SO worth it! I ordered two more.
The flower garden in front is full to bursting. Everything is very crowded.
Do you see the hole above? I think that's the fairy dance floor.
Garden gate. Don't you love any kind of garden gate?
A few years ago, when we were afraid the huge maple tree was going to fall on our dear neighbor's house, we had it removed. It is trying to make a comeback! Wow!
This rose bush, purchased at the grocery store a few years ago, is stunning, don't you think?
The surviving maple tree. She's healthy and full of bloom.
Again, I love animals that wear clothes. I wish I had a red-checked dress and a heart sweater, don't you?
Yesterday I finished this book. You will LOVE it. You'll weep. You'll figure out a way to read all day. It's beautiful.
My friend MK pinned a glorious pin on Pinterest. A creative person MADE a Brambly Hedge house. Click on the link to see it. Unbelievable!
The reason I like Brambly Hedge is because the housekeeping is so inspiring. I'm so house-y. I bet you are, too.
I hope you have a lovely day, busy in all the warmest and delightful ways.
