A fort for adults!

Welcome to my Wine Drinking Fort!I was so sad that I missed Miss Vanessa's Mad Tea Party (due to computer problems)...

that I decided to arrange a little wine tea party instead!... I made myself a fort....right in my back yard....for wine drinking and cake eating...

I bought the bunting flags from adorble little shop from Etsy! They danced in the breeze among twinkle lights and fireflies!....

and I made a rainbow cake!

I have always wanted to make a rainbow was on my summer bucket list....

it wasn't pretty but it was colorful...and tasted delish!!

I wish I had a picture of Lady Luna in the fort

She loved it

Cats are MOST welcome

...but little boys with dirty feet and sticky hands and arms were not:)

Four guests have sat in the magical wine drinking fort....
....I anticipiate more this evening....

and even more tomorrow...

would you like to join me?

Addicted to Turquoise and Red

I seriously can't stop.

I am addicted.

I am in love.

I am inspired.

I must share the images that have captivated me all day....

Please forgive me as I cannot give credit to these AMAZING photos!

I just started looking through images and I could not stop!

I will be dreaming in turquoise and red tonight...{sigh}

A trip to the flea market!

Good morning dear friends!

My husband and I had the best day yesterday which began with a morning drive,

a homemade CD and a thermos of panara coffee...

...the day ended with a moonlight picnic.....

and right in the middle of the day was a trip to the flea market!

I had my camera in the back of my car so I decided to take some pictures of things I needed to buy!

Here are a few fun flea finds!


Here is to another perfect day!!

I wanted to post a few pictures from the weekend I sold my fairy gardens at Grasshoppers... fav store in LeClaire, Iowa......

...such a cute little place with a fun vibe.....

...I love the way Kim, the store owner and my new friend:), decorates the outside of her store..

...tons of vintage things to see wherever you look....
...and a rabbit who comes and goes as he pleases.
He followed me around the last time I was selling my gardens....
...wherever I went, there was Thumper the Rabbit underfoot....

There are also two canaries and the sweetest golden retriever who lives at Grasshoppers.

This lil band played all morning while I sat under the big oak tree talking to shoppers and ever so gingerly steering them toward my fairy garden display:)....

Here are a few of the gardens I sold

Here is a look at the back yard.

There are tons of flea market finds in the barn.

The view from the road downtownOH and did I mention she has a wine celler?

Thank God...I was ready for a drink by the time the second band started up!

Isn't it the most perfect place for fairy gardens to be adopted? xo

Hope you are all having a great day!!

We are off to pick strawberries and make jam to give for fathers day gifts!!
