Yes, it's 2013

Hi Friends,

It's hard to believe it's been since early November last year that I blogged. 

The holidays were wonderful but took a toll on me.  I've been so busy since before Thanksgiving thru the first of this year with company and entertaining.

Today I had a treatment for an autoimmune disease I'm dealing with.  I've enjoyed so many tablescapes and vignettes, but just didn't have the energy to take the pictures and post them.

I'm exhausted or should say....fatigued but wanting to get back in this hobby that I love and share it with you.

Just a few pictures...they are all repeats.

Favorite small pillow from a dear friend who has passed away.
Such a delicate tea cup with saucer.
Mama Gail made this for me years ago for Christmas.  I put it out every year in memory of her.
I left my Christmas tree of last year and made it into a Valentine's tree.
Wonderful memories at the Trinkle Mansion Bed and Breakfast a few years ago.  Love the Country Roses teacup.
Couldn't believe it when I saw this!  Deserves to be repeated.  Gasparilla Island.
I'm joining Beverly for Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound.
and Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage.

Thanks for checking them out.

Hugs,

  7. Happy New Year, LaDonna! I hope you are feeling stronger. I know all about the autoimmune disease because I have one too and I'm always exhausted after the holdays!
    Your basket of poinsettias is just beautiful and how lovely you can set it out every Christmas. Lovely photos, my friend. Hope you are feeling better soon. Take care and thank you for joining me at my HOME.

    Blessings,
    Sandi

    1. Hi Sandi
      I remember you sharing with me about your illness. It's enough just doing everyday things but adding more on top of that is rough!
      It's good to be back. I'm glad you liked the basket. There are getting old but very special to me.

      Blessings to you
      LaDonna

Feeling like Aqua

Hi Everyone! This spring season I've noticed everywhere I go the stores are decorating with teal, aqua and pretty greens.  March mark...
