Happy Mother’s Day ~ Beautiful Irises from the Garden

Happy Mother’s Day!

I just wanted to wish you wonderful moms out there a most wonderful Mother’s Day.

Unfortunately, I am unable to be with my mom today, but hope to see her soon!

I admire her never ending positive attitude on life,

never wanting for much . . . just the company of her family

and just glad to be alive and rise early each day to see the sun rise.

I wish I had just a smidgen of her amazing positive and happy attitude.

A Double Welcome to You

I love looking at all the beautiful doors with their creative wreaths and decorations….

……all so magnificently displayed

One of my favorites has to be this one with a monogram

When I create something for my door…I must do two items…twins….

……what was I thinking?…double doors?…”double stuff” for the doors…

But when you are carrying in large pieces of furniture..they really come in handy….handy dandy…


I refreshed my autumn wreath..removing the acorns and feathers…and added more magnolias


A double welcome to my home….





Love my vintage wagon….


My irises…I really need to relocate them now…now that the shrubs grew!..


On this “pretty note”….I thank you for visiting me…..and my “double door welcome”…..
