My favorite colors: red and yellow! So of course I had to grab it! After reworking the ruffle on the twin bedspread I got a tablecloth!

It's a cute little Panda print.

I added another lace garland!

And put out the "Plein Air Bed & Breakfast" sign in the back yard.

The Rooster is standing guard over the Hosta and Herb garden.

Starting over with another Aloe Vera plant! It's so handy to have that medicinal plant available for burns!

I found this cute little bunch of sunflowers for my kitchen seasonal shelf.

I'm thinking Fall! Sick of this heat already!

This beautiful painting was in a Funeral Home in the city.  I couldn't resist taking a picture. Heard it was painted by a local legally blind man! It's heavy layers of paint, gesso and I don't know what else! Are you ready for Fall too?

And Great Grandson Eli is in the line up too!

So glad to have Davey back with us in Missouri!

Grand daughter Michail is moving on to New Hampshire!  But it was sure good to have her here for a few days anyway!

My niece Pam surprised me with an old Andy to add to my collection.
