Living an old~fashioned life in a cottage by the sea.

"My life is like the summer rose
That opens to the morning sky ~
~ Richard H. Wilde

As you can see I made a few changes to my blog.  I'm not quite sure if I like it or not.  It's definitely different than any look I've done before.  What do you think?  Is it hard to load? 

Nothing much new going on here.  I've been working in the garden, looking after the chickens, keeping house,  just regular stuff.  Hard to believe it's nearly August.  I try to think of it as Summer's farewell.  At any rate, I hope you all are enjoying this week.  I'll be back in a bit with a few pretties I've picked up while thrifting.

I'm off to have a muffin and a cup of tea!

Who Knew??

 Apparently today is National Pink Flamingo Day! 

Who doesn't love a pink bird?

Oops! I was having a bad week and thought I'd lost quite a bit of my blog.  So, I came back to it today and everything seems to be there.  Blogger drives me nuts sometimes, but it's all good.

Hope you all are having a nice weekend!

Sunday Blues

"Every flower of every tomorrow are in the seeds of today"

Our hydrangeas are very unusual this year.  Some are a lovely shade of blue and others mauve and lilac.
