Hi lovely friends ! I know..... I haven't posted in so long and I am so sorry ! I'm just having one of those summer's where so many things are going on !!!! For those of you who'd like to follow me on Instagram, I'm under the name ~ Stephsroses. I post pictures quite frequently there because it's just so darn easy and quick !!!! Jim and I have been working selfishly on our house and we're making a tremendous amount of progress. I am bursting at the seams to show you all the projects and completed work. Just be patient, and when the time is right, you''ll see all the new changes and upgrades. Hope you all have been having a great summer, it's been rootin tootin hot and humid here. Wer'e finally starting to get some 80's weather and lower humidity here, thank you mother nature ! This Saturday we will be throwing a bbq for our daughter Tasha to send her off to Italy at the end of August so this will be a short post. Just wasy too busy, but all good things of course ! One last thing, I'm really excited to share with you some pics of my new found love of clay ! I began creating roses with them not intentionally, but as a craft activity with the kids a couple weeks ago and quickly realized how much fun and joyful it is for me! Hope you like it, please let me know what you think !!!
I will be enjoying this picture all winter long to remind me how much I love them !
For I am truly blessed to grow such beautiful peonies....
A couple weeks ago I scored bigtime at an estate sale and found 126 pieces of Theodore Haviland Limoge china !!!!!! I got such the deal of the century and payed very little too !!!!!
