The Last Roses Of Summer & Random Stuff

Well here they are...the last roses of summer.  I picked these a few
weeks ago and thought I'd post them now.  I have roses well into
October here in Utah, more like into November this year.  It was
an amazing year for my flowers!

Aren't these blooms just lovely...until next year...

Here is a picture of a gorgeous HUGE pitcher my Mom picked up at an
antique store while she was here.  I had it first, decided not to get
it and then she picked it up and asked me if she could get it!  She is
so funny and NICE!  She wanted to make sure that I absolutely did not
want it!  It must have had a matching bowl at some point, but for
$12.50 I told her that she had better take it before I changed my mind!

And for all of you statue and fountain lovers out there take a look at this
beauty!  Mom and I came across it during one of our furniture shopping
trips.  This fountain is in the big RC Willey furniture store in Salt Lake City.
I couldn't help taking a picture of it...those darn orange cones anyway!
Graced at the top with a beautiful cherub, it is followed by horses
and lions spouting water and then maidens at the bottom.  I can't tell
you how tall it is, but it's pretty huge!  I thought that you would like it!

Have a great day!

Goofing Off & Porch Decor!

So yes...I know!  My last post was on August 29th!  I have had people
sending me emails to find out what is going on with me!  So I must is what has been going on...I've been GOOFING OFF!

Where did we leave off?  Let's August I was talking about Victorian
Trading Company and how much I was looking forward to fall.  Well, fall is
in full swing now isn't it!  Siince my last post I took a lovely vacation to
Mount Rushmore to see the "BIG HEADS" and then I spent the rest of
September getting ready for my Mom to arrive.  She was coming for a
nice long six week visit!  Note I said "was"...she has come and gone!
We had the most AMAZING time together!  I sure LOVE my Mom!

I meant to post these pictures a long time ago, BUT things just got in the way are some pictures of what my porch looks like this fall...

I always decorate my concrete dog for the seasons...seeing as
how I don't have a REAL dog hoo!  :(

The brown and orange decor stays OUTSIDE, not's
just not my thing to have it inside the house...

A little autumn fairy is resting on my wreath...

along with her friend who is perched on my tulle...

these fairies seem to be everywhere...

I hope you are having a wonderful fall!
