Shoot for the Moon!

"Shoot for the Moon.
Even if you miss you will land on the stars"!
~Les Brown

Never stop dreaming! Set goals, make a plan and go for it! If the moon doesn't work out, I have always loved the stars! After all, I have made wishes upon them since I was a little girl! Bet you have to!

Handmade in Paris, France!

I love Etsy! I could not resist buying these darling TINY, yummy earrings! They are made by Stephanie who lives in Paris, France! Her detail is incredible to say the least! Her little package was waiting in my mailbox in no time.

It is still hot here, so these delights are quite refreshing to wear!Please excuse my (non) manicure but I wanted to show you how tiny the fruits are and the detail! Have a sweet day!

A (Herbal) Tea Party ~ Gifts From the Sea

"One cannot collect all the beautiful shells on the beach. One can collect only a few, and they are more beautiful if they are few."
~Ann Morrow Lindberg

My sweet friend Kari S. gives a beautiful Tea Party once a year. This year she chose the theme: Gifts from the Sea by Ann Morrow Lindberg. Kari's touches were stunning and uplifting! This year it was held outside in her large pavilion.
I love her property because it is acres of land, filled with gardens and entertainment areas.
One of the views from the pavilion was her black Angus cow, grazing! Just picture perfect!
Here are a few pictures of MANY I took!

...a sweet day! Look at this menu! Each delicacy was baked/cook and prepared to perfection! Oh Kari, I am so impressed!
Since the tea party was outside, I still HAD to show you her beautiful living room! End to a beautiful day! Can't wait for her next Tea Party! Thanks Bunches Kari! You are a sweetheart. xox

Colors of Fall!

Fig Tree Quilts

Happy September sweet bloggers! I LOVE this time of the year! Do you? Even tho I have a houseful of PINK, I welcome the Fall colors. I love the coziness and yummy smells of Fall. I will enjoy it more when the days cool down and the fires are all out here in So. Ca.!
I love to scatter quilts throughout my home! I wish I was a quilter! I found some wonderful blogs where quilter Queen Bee's preside! They are wonderful designers of fabric and/or patterns.
They have delightful blogs!
