a Saturday evening post... it's a bloomin' encore!

Friday was the best day...it was hair day!

when i get my hair styled...it always starts and ends with a hug!

(one of the many blessings that i count in my life.)


Glenda visits 34th Street...
she liked the post about the blooming artichoke.
i told her how the choke was now in full bloom and so amazing.
 she is a passionate gardener and asked that i post another photo.

so this morning...

when the

 light

was

    just right...

my boring brown couch...now speaks French to me!

a new grain sack pillow  has arrived!



... translation?

"French bread makes the day!"

~ visit Michele here ~

the corner is mooshed from extreme hugging!

just me in the morning!

i haven't been at my laptop for a couple days...
work and home keeping are on hyper drive right now...plus
i am working out at 6:00 am six days a week . whew!


the farm table under the chandie is a busy place ...


i won this wonderful book~a~ zine from Jenni at A Beautiful Nest a week ago.
i have it opened on this page because it' so warm and woodsy. 
you will laugh at me...but i have the packing shredded papers from Donna at
A Life Reclaimed tucked all over my home right now. it's like a potpourri "gift 
with purchase" when she ships her fabulous handmade goodies! 
Mr Dreams and the Chocolate Gousse retrieved a bunch of mini pumpkins 
from the property in the valley last weekend, and the bay leaf is drying for 
holiday hostess gifts and place setting favors.

i wish you all the best day...i hope to catch up on my  visits and comments
soon. i just couldn't go another day without saying hello!

it's Monday morning...the artichokes ! again!

i harvested my two and only artichokes a week ago
and brought them inside to dry... they looked like this...

~  photos from last Monday's post ~



when i woke up yesterday morning ...
such a pretty surprise! the larger choke bloomed!

i decided to place the petite choke in my
Grandmother's tarnished teacup!


i  just finished bringing in some Bay Leaf.


i saved the Autumn satin ribbon from a recently
 purchased box of Fran's Chocolates, and decided to tie
 a bunch on pot rack!

 i love this time of year!
we're hosting Thanksgiving Day!
 
 i'm off to work!
happy Monday!
