Change is good!

Here are a few pictures of my beautiful Tea Room as it
looks today........

Two weeks ago I purchased a new sofa. And everyone knows what that means???? Yep, It's time for a new look.

The new sofa is a warm chocolate brown.

"Really?" you ask.

Yes, really!

I'll keep you updated as change happens.

Let the changes begin!!!

Vintage Fashion Magazines

One of my favorite items to look for are vintage magazines....

Certain time periods instantly catch my eye.

Especially the 1950's.

The Dresses! The Shoes! The Bathing suits!

So fashionable, so ladylike.

Beautiful Flowers Romancing My Soul

I have an "on again, off again" romance with my blog. I take pictures and never post them. I log in and stare at the page. I rehearse what I want to talk about and then never write a word. Of course all this leads to my closing the page and off I go in another direction. Only to return in a few weeks to repeat the frustrating process over and over again.

Truly, I write postings to you everyday.... in my mind that is. Instead of fretting about what to write about, I will just relax and whatever is beautiful, whatever is lovely, whatever touches my soul, that is what I will write about. Today my soul was touched by flowers.

My yard is brimming with beautiful flowers. Each one was calling my name today.

"Colleen, take a picture of me."
"No, take one of me!"
"Quiet" I said, "I will take one of each of you."

And so I did ~
