Yawn! What A Nice Nap!

We say it doesn't take long to spend the night at our house. Sleep is a precious commodity here.

Did I say I took a NAP? Oh well, I sure got a lot done!
Just look at this big beauty!

I love how it looks here!

My my, in just a few short days, I had this!

And this!

Oh! Candy, if knowing how to use jumper cables on Monday morning, brings me this on Monday afternoon, then I will help start your car EVERY Monday morning!!!

Thank you for the flowers! I LOVE them. They are so cheery! That was so thoughtful of you.

Hey ya'll, I hope you had a nice "nap". I sure did! What all did you do, while I "snoozed"?

Happy Tuesday!
Love, Rachel

Dear Rachel,
More beautiful pictures! Looks like you have accomplished a lot since you woke up. I know you are happy to see the little yellow flower stick it head out from under the warm cover.
Have a cheerful day, Love you, Donnie

Hi Rachel,
Your chandelier looks so pretty painted white. I was in a little antique shop last week in N.C. and one of the booths had one like this and she took different vintage teacups and tied them on each arm with pink ribbon. She also put a decorative clear bead garland around it. It was so so cute. I am thinking about making one like it.

Hi! Glad you woke up! It was quiet without you!

I love your chandelier! And I'm happy you got flowers for being nice to someone! That was sweet of both of you!

Have a fun day!

Love, Esther

LeAnn, I am going to put bead garland on this one too. I have glass beads that are all different colors, that I think I will use. I'm going to see if I like it first. You will love yours when you get it fixed. Love,Rachel

While you snoozed, I went to Blue Moon Gardens, my favorite nursery out in the country. Really a beautiful, soothing place to be. On a big acreage with little houses and vignettes of gardens and all sorts of great stuff. Came home with a lot of new herbs. Better get out there and see to them!

I don't know anything about blogging. . .I'm still trying to figure out how my new cell phone works! I do love your "A Romantic Porch", though.

I wanted to let you know that I would really like to know more about you, too.
