The Rest of the Story!

Hello Everyone!

     If you visited me yesterday some of this setting will be familiar but now you will see the rest of the story.
I love the old birdhouse above-it came from Wicker Emporium several years ago and it has been in the garden ever since-so it has aged well.
I do have a 'thing' for birdhouses. this one is from Winner's or Homesense.
An old watering can filled with a garden bouquet.
This old door and shutters in the gazebo that my husband built got the same coat of paint as the chair above and in the previous post. We but an old mirror in behind the door to reflect the chandelier and garden.

Well,that is the rest of the story-tomorrow we can move on to something else!

I am joining My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday.

 As, I sit here I can hear the sound of a gentle warm rain and feel a nice little breeze blowing in the window-lovely!

Welcome to my new followers -so happy to have all of you both new and old.

Thank you for visiting me,

It is so adorable and welcoming. The attractive thing of your blog is birdhouse and candle stand, I sure you took it from your vintage collection.

Hi Carolyn,
Beautiful photos, the bird houses are so lovely. The color of the door and chair is so pretty and what a brilliant idea, to put a mirror in the door.
Hugs, Cindy

Your flowers are just gorgeous and your birdhouse adds just the right "shabby chic" touch to your lovely garden.

Beautiful photos, Carolyn! I love birdhouses too. Loved your picnic on a chair in your previous post too. Feels more like Summer now, eh? Enjoy the weekend. We're heading for the beach again!

Just as beautiful as the other days show. You certainly have a "thing" for showing lovely photos too, lol.
Hope you have a good weekend.
Love Elzie

What a lovely colorway. It tells a story of an owner who is relaxed and hospitable.
