great bloomin’ summertime!


Great big blooms in shades of pink and whites....


…..and plenty of bumble bees stirring about for a taste of sweet nectar. I just love the flowers of summer and the beauty that they bring to brighten even the warmest of days.



Before I take a little break, I just want to thank each and every one of you for all of the lovely comments left in my last post!!!! You just made my day! Seriously!! The room was a joy to put together and super fun to be able to finally share with you. Many of you shared that thrift store prices aren't so "thrifty" anymore and I have to agree. Some do have "sale" days and you can get better deals there. The good buys are out there! Happy scouting!

Time to don the apron and get to making some more of those chocolate chip cookies, too!

Till next time, have a good one! Enjoy the week and do something nice for yourself. :)

What a beautiful garden! Are those crepe myrtles? Mine are just about finished blooming. It's getting hot around here...

My heart did a little pitter patter when I saw the scottie apron. Adorable!

Just gorgeous. I bet they have a wonderful smell too ?

Love your flowers. They certainly cheer up the landscape. Yes thrifting has become big business. I see thrift stores popping up everywhere. And prices are going up too. But there are still bargains to be had, with a little searching. Have a wonderful week!

Thinking of you.. I am so sorry that I have not been over here in a while.. I lost my Dad on July 2nd and my heart is so broken.. I know you understand that..

Sending my love and thoughts of you today...

Helen said...

Both of your last two posts have taken my breath away! First that gorgeous bedroom (that I'm coveting like crazy) and now the gardens of your home (that I'm coveting some more). I live in the CA desert and could never grow anything like that. Thanks so much for the break from my reality :)

Oh my goodness Becky yall have some
gorgeous flowers. My crepe myrtles have black flies as they do every year. I have sprayed and sprayed but our big oak tree just
puts off too much shade for them. That is a beautiful post and I love,love,love your apron. Enjoy your break. ":O)

I have just recently discovered your blog. I am working my way through to see all of the wonderful things I have missed. Thank you for all of the fabulous recipes. Your little red bedroom reminded me of mine and my sister's which we shared growing up.It too was in red and white. Thank you again. Louise

I have to say I've gone back again and again to see that precious room you put together. I have no doubt I'll be coming back here a bunch more times and drooling some more.

Your flowers are gorgeous Becky! Don't eat too many cookies -- they're addictive, aren't they???

Beautiful blooms! Wish we could grow hydrangeas here. Our air is so dry and they like moisture. Posted about your yummy cookies today. They were delish. Mimi

Hi Becky!

What beautiful blooms! I read the entire post of your bedroom redo, and I just love how you pulled everything together! I just love this style. I love Tina's house, and her sister's too. I wish her sister would make a blog! I collect some of those vintage pictures too. I haven't found a place to hang them yet, but I am thinking of making my sun porch in the colors you have used, and putting them out there. Now I feel inspired. Hope it is cool where you are!
