Project Complete, Finally!

 Years ago (in the home we downsized from,well 11years ago) my hubby built in our back porch, to make a small sunroom. We bought an oval table and chair set for it. I have been wanting for so long to restain it since it has faded so badly.

This is the before photo.


Now the After!

 Love the after!

It's hard for me to get started on projects these days, but I do like the results.  Now I would like to stain the concert floor of the patio, but can't decide what color.

I have enjoyed many a morning there listening to the birds sing and having a cup of tea.

 Hope you are enjoying your day!

Special Girls Outing

Saturday on our way for a day outing with just 'us Girls', we stopped at a friends house that was having a yard sale. Well it wasn't her house, she was having it at the house of a friend. I fell in love with the landscape.  As we were about to leave, I asked permission to take a few photo's.

This is the house, isn't the greenery and flowers pretty!
 The house is pretty also!

The back yard was even prettier, but I didn't ask until we were leaving so I didn't get photo's of it.

The main reason we stopped by was she had told me that she had her china for sale. It was hers when she was first married, her husband passed away a few years ago.
You know me, I always, always have to buy anything with teacups,,,LOL! My daughter said "Where are you going to put them".  Well I have a very special place for them, but that's a secret I'll tell you later.

On the bottom it says, Noritake Ireland Patience.
 It's a placing setting for 6.

 I love the feet, kinda looks like a stand, don't you think!

The flowers are so pretty with a white Lacey look

Trimmed in silver.


I told her I would have a Tea Party and she wanted to know if she could come, she will differently be invited. 

Have a Blessed Day!

I love those old towns that haven't changed in time! They touch my heart in some way that I can't seem to explain.
The old stores!

Here in this little and I do mean 'little' town of Musella, Ga. is an old 'Cotton Gin'.  It sits next to the Peach Packing shed that has some of the best Peaches in Georgia. We try to go every year and get peaches and ice cream.  My hubby and I met my daughter, and two grandchildren there yesterday, to have a day out.

See the old car on the left. Don't see many of those anymore!

Inside there is so much to see and do! Of course this is where they pack the peaches, today they weren't packing, guess they must be picking!

Don't they look delicious!
 This is some that are For Sale.

Above the packing area and around the building are old furniture and things that were used long ago.
Love the old stove and coffee table.
The building is open air and the ceiling is full of ceiling fans.

Lot's of veggie's and other items for sale.

Oh, I can't forget to tell you about the Peach Ice Cream, it was so good!  Here's Anna with hers in a waffle cone. I got mine in a cup.

I hope you enjoyed our trip to the Peach Packing Shed!

Sondra at Shabby 2 Chic & Anything Between  posted on her blog "God will give you more than you can handle". I thought
"Hum, I always heard that God wouldn't give you more than you can bear"  After meditating on this for a while it came to me that with every burden He allows you to bear, He always gives you the way out. We can stay in our situation and be burdened down with it, or we can call out to Him, trust Him and give it into His capable hands. 

Ecclesiastes 3:3 
...a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up.

Matthew 11:28-30
"Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest."

As every care and burden is lifted up in prayer, they become easier to bear.

Each of us face trails and burdens each day, our understanding will be surpassed by God's love for us.

One of my favorite chapters in the Bible is Psalm 143, it has comforted my heart and helped me along life's path.  In these days of stress and uncertainty, my faith has been increased by knowing that God is faithful and will guide me as I walk with Him.

Psalm 143:8
"Cause me to hear thy loving kindness in the morning, for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way that I should walk;"

Each day is new and we experience new and wonderful blessings, let us be thankful and give God the praise and glory, for all things are of Him. Take comfort in His Love.



Thanks Abby at Little Birdie Blessings for the photo's.

A Special Garden Tea!

Good morning, it's a lovely day after the rain yesterday. Welcome to my Garden Tea with some of my fury and feathered  friends.

The air is so fresh, clean and feeling good.

I have Biscotti, it's almond vanilla dipped in chocolate

 Grapes for us to enjoy.

They are always great to have at Tea Time.

Tea is ready, also.

The sky is so pretty and blue!

 Oh here is our first guest, this little bird has made her home in my fern.

 And here's Mr/Ms Hummingbird, a frequent visitor! I have some sweet nectar for her.

 And of course, Milo and Madi is here. Still just a little cool for Madi.

The three silly 
frogs, they always have a fun time!

In the summer I turn my chimaera  into a planter holder or in this case it holds the little frog birdbath. 

 Don't know what's so funny, they didn't tell me the joke!

Ms. Rabbit came at the last minute, she scampered in 
over the morning glory.

I do hope you have enjoyed your visit!

and come again soon!
