Bloom where you are planted :-)

I’ve always loved that little saying. I remember it from when I was but a little girl…… and that was a loooong time ago!

I was fortunate to find these two little pieces that make such a nice couple hanging about together. They were purchased from two adorable Etsy sellers. The frame with chicken wire and green glass knobs comes from Antebelle. I found Antebelle through my daughter’s website, Handmade in PA, that promotes and supports Artisan/crafters of Pennsylvania

Hanging on the frame is a sweet little sign that says “bloom”! It has a wire hanger that curls into a bow at the top. And where do I get so many of my signs? From Donna at WhimsyTwo, of course!

I pray this Sunday finds you happily blooming where ever you have been planted! ((hugs)) Rosie

A Re-Post

I don’t do this too often, but I was looking back over my oldies but goodies while sitting here in the middle of a snow storm. I began daydreaming of Spring and thought you might like to join me 🙂

WHAT DO I LOVE ABOUT MY HOME?

Karla over at “Karla’s Cottage”. is posing the question “What do you love about your home?” And, she’s sharing not only her beautiful kitchen but she is linking to other wonderful blogs where you can take peeks of their favorite spots in their home.

Think I will join the fun….

My “favorite” and I think “romantic” place in my house is actually around my house. I love my porch. A reader once said ” Oh you have my Dream Home, A Porch with a house in the middle of it” I loved that!

Front Porch 2 It extends from the side steps left to my kitchen door and straight….past my front door (52 feet), it then turns the corner for another 46 feet….turns the corner again and heads to the screened-in room, which is off my dining room.

Front Porch

The screen porch that looks off into the woods is my “nest”. It’s a great place to cuddle up by myself or with family and friends. It is the coziest place….. I look froward to the first warm spring day to open it for the season….porch sitting season, that is :<)

Well, there you have it…..my “favorite, cozy, romantic” place in my home.

Hope you enjoyed a glimpse of summer 🙂

The light

There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
