it will be a wonderful time.

eggs in one basket

enjoy a summer collage to celebrate a joyous

is there anything more quintessentially summer than
birds and nests?
here is my attempt at creating a bird's nest for a jewelry photo shoot...

so longing for a bike basket like this one to nestle my Krumpet in as
we are bike riding...
Happy Summer...

roses in view...


Behind schedule this summer in setting up the outdoor furniture
but so excited to participate in the fun Blog Block Party

along my front stone wall to highlight the new red gates
for so long and this year, accomplished!

placed climbing roses on the arbor on the side patio,

the back yard sitting area is in bloom too.

It would be so magnificent to tell you that I am in France
 and a moment ago took this photograph.
This amazing balcony has the most astonishing detail and is so inviting
I feel like I am there, don't you?

However, I write this happily, from the homestead.
Next post will be more of the Garden wedding. Enjoy...

For Table Top Tuesday I went searching through my file of favorite pics. Although not a table top vignette, this serene combination of objects makes me smile. The candle and the flowers in the bottles is a novel idea. The ormulu wood carvings are pretty, quaint and elegant at the same time...
