Because I Don't Want to Forget

She said with excitement in her voice that she gets to see a REAL LIVE "vet~re~n" at school today! I just wonder what she thinks a REAL LIVE "vet~re~n" looks like!
I'll find out this afternoon!
Isn't it interesting when the kiddos are tucked in bed and it is time to turn out the lights that they love to talk about their day...the words just seem to flow as though they have to get it all said before you leave the room. At least that is the way it has been across the years in our household.
A couple of nights ago she was talking about her day and she said, "You know how the sun was digesting the water!"
An adult with "proper perspective" would have corrected her and explained how the sun was causing the water to evaporate.
I didn't correct her...because I don't want to forget to see life though the innocent eyes of a child's perspective.
Have a wonderful day.

November Featured Porch

Hello sweet blog friends. It is with great joy and extreme excitement that I am able to share with you another blog post and the November 2009 Featured Porch. Due to patient and heroic efforts of Mr. Romantic Porch, he was able to get our "elderly" computer to be cooperative and Sharon at Rose of Sharon is our featured porch. So take a look and enjoy her gorgeous photos and what she says about her romantic porch." I love fall and I love to decorate, so what's a girl gonna do? LOL!
A few years ago I found this fabulous old cast iron pot at a church rummage sale. It was all rusty and beat up, but I thought it would go perfectly on the front porch for fall with floating candles in it.
I added acorns to the water for an added fall touch. We don't have an acorn tree, so I went down to the high school where there is an oak tree and got down on my hands and knees and picked up all these acorns. People probably thought I was going nuts! Get it...nuts....hee-hee! :0) I was a bit disappointed that most of them sunk to the bottom, only a hand full of them floated, but you can still see them and they add a little drama!
I stacked some old wooden fruit crates to create this little display area by the front door. Most of these items are just things that I found in our garden shed.
Here's what our porch looks like at night with the candles lit.
I know I have a lot of things on the porch, but it is nice because I will leave it all up until I bring out my Christmas decorations. It is very fun and rewarding for me to decorate my home for each season and holiday. I love the homeyness it brings and my family appreciates it too."

Sharon, thank you for sharing your beautiful porch with us. It truly casts a romantic atmosphere for those who come to your front door.

Please visit
Sharon and tell her you saw her beautiful porch.
Have a wonderful day. I'm so excited to finally have another blog posting!
