  6. Wendy,
    Such beautiful pics especially the ones with the tea pots and of the garden decor!!

    And what a generous giveaway!! I would be honored to be entered and I am already a follower!!


  7. Wendy, I had never visited your blog before and I am in love with your blog, although I am a follower, I apologize for not visiting sooner. Your blog is absolutely beautiful. Love the strawberry since I collect hearts and this strawberry is shaped like a heart. You should see the tears running down my cheeks right now reading about your papa. I too lost my daddy in 1990 but to me it was yesterday. I was daddy's girl being an only child. Mom lived to the age of 95, how lucky for me to have enjoyed her for such a long time. Love all your pictures,I can see you are a loving family. Blessings to you and your family...Lu

  8. That box with the jewelry in it is exquisite. And ahhh, the red rose....that made my Saturday a blessed one.
