Thoughts on all things garden themed from an antique dealer gone amuck! I write, play with the dogs, and fill my house with garden art. There is hardly time to work the dirt!

Vintage Photos To Celebrate Time In A Garden

I love old photographs of women in the garden. For your viewing pleasure a few Victorian women enjoying the final days of summer.

I wonder if this grew to become Stone Mountain?

If I had watered more, perhaps my potted plants would have looked like this!

Now this looks more like the growth in my garden!

The perfect Garden Party look. I adore her hat.

The Awful Truth - My True Confession

A recent book review of The Unfaithful Widow by Helen Ross in Australia refers to me as naughty and cheeky. Since I had my fall on June 29, and my rotator cuff surgery on July 12, I have been behaving badly! Trying to enjoy being the laziest gal in town. So today I am confessing my awful truths on how naughty I've been recovering from surgery! Check out Helen's blog and meet one of the most charming gals around. Leave a comment below on your true confession on how naughty you've been!

My dear, that simply won't do.
The Awful Truths Since I've Been In My Sling:

I have not watered my garden and my plants
are now brown!

I eat ice cream at night and have gained five pounds.

I've found I like taking mid-afternoon naps rather than going to the gym.

My dogs were not let out timely since I couldn't move well - now I am housebreaking them again.

It's fun to do nothing and then talk about it on my cell.

I haven't been able to make my jewelry, but still order vintage parts.

I bought a beautiful cottage dresser and can't lift it out of the van.

I drive in my sling with one hand, but just to meet friends for dinner.

Margaritas are better than pain pills (of which I have taken zero pills, but have downed a few frozen Margaritas!)

I had to buy larger jeans to pull up with one hand.

I still dream of kissing the boys and making them cry!

What are your awful truths?

Visit a wonderful free art site! I found these charming images there. Art Freebies, a great blog you will love.
