Yard Work!

Hi All,
I have been busy the last 4 days in the yard.  I am trying to get the beds ready for mulch, after we return from a trip to my daughter's.  The plants are emerging and so much green.  I love it.  No pots filled yet.  I will wait till I get back from my trip.  I have also taken a couple of pictures of the new window boxes on the front of the house.  I will paint them on Sat!

Happy Saturday

Hi All,
Just wanted to share my sweet birdie Momma.  She has made a wreath on our door into the garage.  That door is off limits now!  lol

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Window Boxes and Birthday Party

Hi All,
We are still experiencing cold weather.  I am so ready to get out in my yard and enjoy it!  Lots of work to do first!  
My carpenters are replacing my window boxes.  The one under the kitchen window has lasted nearly 30 years.  The one on the north east corner was built later, but still needs replaced.  I will be sharing the progress with you!  Yesterday, we celebrated one of the tennis girl's birthday.  So fun!

Here is the other one that will come down

My wonderful friends, celebrating a birthday

Lots of laughter!

I will be posting soon on the window box progress!

Granny's Hoosier and more

Hi All,
I am trying to do better about this blogging business!  I really do miss all of you.  Life gets busy, sometimes.  I know you who have visited me before have seen my Granny's Hoosier cabinet, but I wanted to highlight it today.  I had a new pantry built in my kitchen, where her cabinet used to sit.  I decided to move it in the dining room.  I really like it there!
I will do a post soon, on my new pantry!
I decided to decorate it with my vintage onion pattern dishes

A closer look

Sweet dishtowel

That is Granny and the little music figurines I gave her, many years ago for Christmas.  She and I always made noodles together.  This reminded me of us!

Just added this for fun.  This is in my bath

I love all things Colonial or Early American.  Can you tell???

Christmas Cheer!

Hi All,
It has been awhile since I have posted, but I wanted to share some Christmas Cheer with you!  I hosted our yearly Christmas party with my tennis group.  I made a traditional dinner which included, honey baked ham, loaded hash brown casserole, coleslaw, apple cranberry and sage stuffing, rolls and pumpkin pie cake for dessert.  Hope you all are having an enjoyable holiday season!







Merry Christmas!

More Fall

Hi All,
The temps are cooling off in Illinois.  That makes me want to nest in my beloved Cape home.
I bought a pumpkin cookie jar this year, very similar to Mary's.  I won't bother to explain who Mary is, as you must know by now what a huge fan I am of The Mary Tyler Moore show?!

Frosted pumpkins atop The Flair

Finally,  got my chalkboard door done!
Hope you are having great Fall weather!!!
