Caught My Camera's Eye

I had my camera with me on our 
trip to Florida this past week.

The following were images that
caught my eye.....


Spider plants blooming along the Gulf waters......

Spider plant close up with beautiful green
colored grass as back drop.  In distance is
light sparkles coming from the Gulf of Mexico.

Beautiful calm waters of the Gulf. Perfect
sailing weather.

Painting Project

Nothing I like much better than to
take on a decorating project. In recent
times we painted a bedroom suite.
We selected a finer paint by Sherwin
Williams and began our project.
Our goal was to make something
old, new again.

After a week of painting, we
were delighted in the 
finished project.

Christmas Decorating

 is my favorite time of year.

This year, the Mister and 
I are back
in South Carolina, 
living in our beloved
home town.

It's exciting decorating
 a new home and I've 
selected softer traditional 
colors . 

To the room with colors of
 blue and white,
 I've added a complimenting 
holiday theme.

The Christmas tree, eight
feet tall, has branches 
splashed with 
new fallen snow.

 Blue and white meets

Mister and Mrs Stockings

Soon to add fresh greenery
and of course lots of 
Christmas gifts
beneath the tree.

Sweet blessings for your day!

Fall Mums

Fall mums, Cooperstown New York.

Guard well your spare moments.
They are like uncut diamonds
Discard them and their value will
never be known. Improve them
and they will become the brightest
gens in a useful life.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Think on this. Blessings Dee Dee

The Gathering

We had our family "Gathering"  this spring, on an l800's  farm, belonging to our daughter and her very large family.  It's located in upstate New York, nestled in the Adirondack mountains. I have no words to describe the beauty there. We came together for a brief time and discovered what it means to be related. The children found uncles, aunts and cousins.  The men and boys enjoyed skeet shooting and the women folk never lacked for conversation.

We used old tables left in one 
of the three barns on the farm.

Wildflowers for the tables....the
meadows were covered with them.

White birch tree is leafing out...

Early spring on the farm. The lilacs were
just budding out in the picture. The gathering
took place in this meadow near the barn.

We've moved from Florida back to our 
beloved town in South Carolina.  My postings
will be about my southern life now and time
spent on the farm in the Adirondacks.
