Baskets and Bouquets

Hello everyone,
Our lovely weather continues so I enjoyed doing some painting outdoors today.This old chair got a coat of gold paint leftover from our house.

  Since we have a lot of hydrangeas right now I loaded up this beautiful basket from my friend Janice and enjoyed taking a few photos in the (almost) autumn light.

Tomorrow I am off to Orwell Corner on a homeschooling trip with my daughter and little grandson Lucas so you can rest assured my camera will be coming too. I am looking forward to the day and hope our beautiful weather holds until we get home as rain is on the way.

I would like to welcome my new followers and thank you once again to you long term friends too.

Take care




Adorei a cesta bordada. Os dias aí devem estar lindo e fico imaginando as cores do outono. Bom passeio e compartilhe conosco mais belas fotos.

Fique em paz.

I'm not sure what those apricot flowers are but they are so beautiful. Your tall tea-cup is lovely, too. Very pretty post. Deb

Paint old wooden kitchen chairs.
Tie old books up in ribbons.
Cover a swing seat in fabric.
Pick some apples.
Have some tea.
Be grateful for friends with pretty blogs.
Praise our gracious Lord.
