Jo-Anne Coletti's "The Feminine Home" ~ Where The Heart Is

Well girls, it's almost the end of July and you all know what's happening
at the beginning of August don't you?  If not, where have you been?  (*_*)

It's time for the newest edition of the The Feminine Home by my dear friend,
Jo-Anne Coletti!  The second edition of her book is coming out next week
and this one is entitled Where The Heart Is.  It promises to be even better
and more lovely than her first edition if you can even imagine that!  It
 sure will be hard to top, but if anyone can pull it off, Jo can!

You can hop on over to her web site Vintage Rose Collection

and preorder your copy of this highly anticipated book!

I will leave you now with this glorious picture that I came across!
Isn't it just the most perfect pink room ever!  So beautiful!

Have a lovely day!

Hollyhock Heaven!

Those of you who have followed my blog for any length of time will know that
I do not do alot of blogging during the summer.  In fact, I am lucky to get in
three or four posts during the summer months.  Why you ask?  Well...I just
hate being inside!  I would much rather be out in the garden puttering around
or just sitting on the porch taking in the beauty of it all.  My web site suffers,
my blog is neglected and my Etsy site grows stale, but I'm sorry, I just can't
help it.  It's all worth it to me to enjoy the beauty of every summer day... 

So today I thought I would show you my pretty hollyhocks that are in my
front garden.  I haven't planted any for years and years, but they just keep
coming up and this year they are just beautiful!

I love all of the different colors mixed in together!

So English cottage!

I just added this medallion after the above pictures were taken.  The brick wall
was so bare and needed some class so I went over to Hobby Lobby and found
three lovely pieces that "married" well together.  I love the way it looks!

I hope you enjoyed my flowers!
