Hello Rose Blossom! Can you smell them? Yesterday while out shopping we found some rose things for our roses. My granny was Evelyn Rose so we named our baby Jenny Rose. Now we have a Samantha Rose and a Millie Rose. Rose is a very good name to carry on.
I know you've seen this picture before, but can you BELIEVE how toadstool-y cute Plum Cake is? Her cheeks are so squeezable!
This is a Pinterest photo. Sweet family. Look at that blissful sleep. I miss our Golden Retriever.
I miss this sweet face. I think about my dear dad all. the. time.
Next Saturday I'll get to see THIS sweet face. Rose lips.
When I planted Mammoth sunflowers, I named the blooms Pie Face. This year's blooms are smaller. Girls, I guess.
This Birdie face was hot and sweaty at her soccer game on Saturday. The weather is going to cool off this week. YAY! I'm ready to wear cardigans.
At Costco yesterday, we came upon tangelos. They are shiny, soft, and scrumptious!
Kelli and I laughed about Halloween candy. The shelves at the stores are bulging with it. She was looking at a gigantic bag and I said, "I don't think you want that yet. You must ask yourself how many times you intend to buy Halloween candy before Halloween arrives." She knew what I meant. I've gained ten pounds before, just dipping into prematurely bought Halloween candy. It's so festive, though!
I found the third tin cup up above the kitchen sink. Three tin cups. Don't you think they'd make nice stars in a story? My sweet friend Sandra sent me this tea holder. It makes me sing, "Polly, put the kettle on! We'll all have tea!" I love it.
When my mom comes in November (for Thanksgiving! Yeep!) we'll drink a little afternoon tea in the cups she sent me. We'll watch the birds. We love birds.
And these tiny figures . . . that holy time of year. Don't you love this season? From now until then? It's full of love.
Also in the dish cupboard, glass pebbles and earthy pots and cups.
Here are two cups for us. I hear the kettle whistle!
There are still fairies in the garden even though it is almost time to tidy things up for the NEXT growing season. A fall task = tulip and daffodil bulbs must be planted!
I was sewing a button on a pair of pants this morning and I realized that I am a fumble fingers with needles. It takes practice and time to stitch. I would like to hone my embroidering skills. Are people forgetting how to draw with thread? I hope not.
I hope you find time to practice your art today. There are so many different ways to do this. Doodle, stitch, cut, and glue.
Yay for a brand new week! Enjoy each moment, Rose Blossom.
