   Hello everyone,

With summer coming to a close there
is still lots of beauty to be had in the

A little garden vignette with
my garden fairy reading her
book among the roses.

                                                                I love these easy care Knock out roses
                                                                as they put on a couple of good shows
                                                                in the season with a few blooms all

I planted a few dahlias in the garden
for bouquets.

                                                   The Strawberry Vanilla Hydrangea
                                                              is covered in blooms them!

                                                              Well, summer is offically over but the weather
                                                              is still quite summery here and I am loving it!
                                                               However, I do enjoy the beauty of Autumn as
                                                     just takes me a little longer to get into
                                                              the swing of things.

                                                                 One of my favorite days in autumn is coming up
                                                              on Saturday though as it is the annual 70 Mile Coastal
                                                              Yard Sale and the weatherman is promising warm sunshine!


                                                                                          Happy Autumn!

Transferware Lunch in the September Garden

Hello everyone!

   I hope your weekend is going well.
    Although we still have lovely days in
       September there is signs of approaching
       autumn so it is nice to enjoy these sunny
       but cooler days in the garden as much as

So, I thought I would share one of my
favorite tablescapes from a couple
of years ago in our September garden.

                                                                    I have always loved variations of the
                                                                    Cabbage Rose pattern and have collected
                                                                   bits and pieces over the years.
                                                         My friend Snow and I had fun setting
                                                         the table out under the old apple trees
                                                         in our garden where it was nice and
                                                         shady on a perfect September day.
                                                                  We layered the table with linens and lace.

                                                           A bouquet of flowers from our garden
                                                           and my red and white transferware were
                                                                   We had a great harvest of cherry tomatoes.

                                                              You can see our Gardener's Cottage in
                                                               the background.

                                                                 Some fresh rustic bread

                                               It was a beautiful day to enjoy a
                                                          late summer lunch in the garden.
                                                             If you would like to see some of
                                                          my favorite summer garden tablescapes
                                                         you can click Here.

                                                          My thoughts and prayers are with
                                                          all of you who are effected by the
                                                          Hurricanes and hope you will all
