Happy 80th Birthday to my beautiful momma

Most of all the other beautiful things in life come by twos and threes,
 by dozens and hundreds. Plenty of roses, stars, sunsets, rainbows, brothers and sisters, aunts and cousins, comrades and friends.
but only one mother.
~ Kate Douglas Wiggin

Happy Spring 2013

It starts to feel like spring and then it gets chilly again,
but that's OK it's coming it won't be long
 and we will be wishing for cooler weather again..
I thought today would be the perfect day to share the lovely flowering peach trees that we saw while visiting Magnolia Plantation and Gardens a couple of weeks ago they were so pretty.. 
Meet Peppermint

Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
My, oh my what a wonderful day!
Plenty of sunshine heading my way
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay

Mister Bluebird on my shoulder
It's the truth, it's actch'll
Ev'rything is satisfactch'll
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
Wonderful feeling, wonderful day!
Hope your first day of spring is fabulous...

Peaches to Beaches 2013

Some of the sight you will see while riding along Highway 341 
during the longest yard sale in Georgia

Azaleas, sweet treats, lots and lots of people and treasures

plants and toys

beautiful handcrafted items... 
These embroider Days of the week kitchen towels came home with me

kitchen gadgets .. don't you just love them..

pot and pans even pink ones

furs, hats, bottles and lots of glassware

Gospel music and BBQ ... The sounds and smells are heavenly...

antiques everywhere

and new this year a table full of stuffed deer .. 
I forgot I took this picture kinda freaked me out when I first saw it ...lol

the rooster I left behind and have been kicking myself ever since

and a picture that I wish I had grabbed

and apparently Miss Beasley and her friend 
hangout here at the creepy house every year for Beth remembers them.. 
I guess I am to busy worrying about spirits trying to tag a ride with us..

and my newest love Frog Jam and Pineapple Salsa
 let me tell ya'll, heck I shouldn't tell ya cause
 then there may not be any for me the next time..
This stuff is awesome! 
The pineapple salsa is one of the best things I have ever tasted
We met Miss Sue, she was so sweet she says she is just a little home based business but I bet if she wanted she could sell this stuff by the 
5 gallon buckets for mega bucks..

our official/unofficial shot.. We pieced this together because...
We are women .. We have the right to
OK she looked good in one I looked good in the other..lol

and lastly some how this camellia manged to get in our car and come back
 to Savannah with us in hopes that it will root..  
I know ya'll automatically assume that I am the one that stole it..
 didn't ya ... NOT. 
My aunt Mary always said the flowers she stole would root and flourish
 the ones she asked for always died.
So in hopes this works for us Beth and I should have
a beautiful keepsake for years to come.

Happy Friday everyone hope it's a fun one
hugs, Cherry

the swing beds were fun

lighting/ candles above the outside dining table
we loved this idea..
Other than an outdoor shower that's it... that's your 2013 Dream Home.
Miss Di of Musings asked what was my favorite room...
Well the truth is not one room stood out. I never had a WOW moment
Maybe HGTV spoiled me with their  
Now that was a dream home it was filled with art by local artist. 
It had a beautiful path and dock to the water with million dollar views from almost every room. Even after almost 10 years the way it was decorated still works today.
 If you missed part 1 you can see it here Visiting the 2013 Dream Home.

hugs ya'll hope everyone has a fun day, Cherry
Next up is The house next door to the dream house.....

Visiting the HGTV Dream House 2013

My girlfriends and I left Savannah on a Friday morning
 heading out to see and do everything we could from here
 all the way to Isle of Palms in 36 hours...
First stop The Dream House
 on the beautiful Kiawah Island, South Carolina..

as you can see the house is 3 levels..
Here is the second level which is the main living area

first thing we saw upon walking in was the living room
 with the dining and kitchen off to the right.
The lighting was fabulous windows and doors everywhere.

Powered room..  I liked the lime green strips but the other girls didn't..

a little sitting nook

pantry area

back in the living room

the gate was cool it was above the fire place.
 I don't think any of liked the fireplace though

looking from the glass doors back towards the front door

shot from same spot just looking up to the third level

master bedroom I liked the colors used in this room
 and I loved the pillow in the chair.

master bath and us
