{pretty, happy, funny, real}

Linking up with Leila at Like Mother, Like Daughter for {pretty, happy, funny, real}!

I usually like flowers from the cottage garden or wildflowers. My local grocery store though had these for $2.29! It was a deal I couldn't pass up! They adorned the counter where we eat for well over a week.

Our oldest son is doing an oral surgery residency 9 hours from here. So we don't see him and his wife and their sweet littles very often. They will be here next week for a few days!! :) Part of that time our son and daughter-in-law are going on a little get away of their own and I get to be Nana!! I am sooo excited!!!  (pictures to follow :)

The girls used to like to slide down the bathtub while I got dressed!
We have a huge hornet nest behind our garage. :/


  1. Those pink blooms are so soft and loveIy! I love having a few fresh blooms on the table! I clip what I have in the yard even if its just honeysuckle or wild basil in bloom!

  2. WOW! That nest is HUGE! We've had a big problem with wasps this year, more so than in other years. Thankfully we haven't run into anything like that. Ouch!

  3. Hi,
    Nice pictures. Nice quilt, and cute pictures of the girls. How old are they? How many and how old are your Grand Children that are coming for a stay. You will be busy, but a good busy. Nice set of dishes from the estate sale. Love the blue lamp in the background behind your main cook. I could use a good cook.
