My Sister's Garden

We all call it her secret garden and it truly is the most charming cottage garden you will ever see. She lives in a town house with just a tiny space for a garden and my goodness, has she ever made use of her personal spot on this earth! Let me first take you thru her arbor, covered with miniature pink roses and twinkle lights.    In fact, she has twinkle lights everywhere, which truly makes it magical at night.  I hope you will come away with some ideas with this tour of my sister's special place (and ours too).  (thank you Deb for allowing me to share your garden.  She is also the photographer) Maybe next time she will let me photograph her sweet screened porch.  Oh the vintage pieces you will love!

 Can you stand it?   

 this red metal rocker is starting to weather to a beautiful pink....will she repaint it? ...not on your life  :)


she collects the old blue Ball jars and like me, she loves her old terra cotta flower pots with the patina of green moss and leached soil minerals


 IDEA:   Did you notice her rugs..She has several layered rugs in one outdoor area, which gives pause to think it's a separate little room.  Love that she put the rugs over white rocks

 

that gorgeous french wire table was a find at Luckett's Virginia.
 

this charming birdhouse was a find at Luckett's Spring Market


thank you for dropping by today.....see you soon with a fabulous recipe for Fall

Easiest Delicious Tomato Sauce Ever

You can find me on Facebook here..... would love a "like" and visit

With lots of tomatoes still hanging on the vine,  I wanted an easy peasy way to make a freezable sauce....no canning.  I only grew a few plants of cherry tomatoes this summer, but I have some very sweet neighbors who shared their bounty with me....cukes, okra, and tomatoes.  The secret of this simple great tasting sauce is in the roasting and not only makes a fabulous spaghetti sauce but  is a foundation for many, many recipes.  So gather all those late season tomatoes and get to roastin'.   Enjoy.

Decorating with White

You can find me on Facebook here..... would love a "like" and visit

I love white; I love cream; I love old

White is not an absence of color; it is an affirmative thing, as definite as black and as fierce as red
                                                                            G.K.Chesterton

white in my home
                                                                                                                                                                     
 

 
 
   
                                                                                                                                                                           
                                                                                                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                                                           
                                                                                                                                                                                       


                                                                                                                                                                             
                                                                                                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                                                                                                         

For those colors which you wish to be beautiful, always first prepare a white background
