A few of the things which catch my eye, inspire me, pluck at my heart strings, make me smile, or that I just enjoy.  Maybe they will do the same for you.    
  

   

 
The roses in our garden at the moment.  So beautiful.  We have them in all colours.  These pink ones are my favourites. I don't know what they are called, just that I call them beautiful.

  1. More beautiful favourites. Love the cat with the scarf. Your pink rose is gorgeous. Does it have a nice scent, too? Hope things cool down a bit for you. Hugs, Elaine

    1. Actually it does have a scent Elaine. I have found that a lot of flowers today have had the scent bred out of them, but these smell lovely! Its going to be the hottest day today, but is supposed to start cooling down tomorrow. Here's hoping! Love and hugs to you! xoxo

  3. Oh that pink rose! And the kitty with the scarf! How I love the little table by the window with the tea towel cafe curtains. I made ones out of a blue and white fabric once and loved them forever!

    1. Oh, I bet they were just lovely Mary! I have some tiny check blue and white gingham ones I made with lace trim that I adore, but they don't fit my windows here. xoxo

  4. Oh, I'd just love to step inside that next-to-last photo and have a seat. :) That vintage birthday card pulls at my own heartstrings. Why, the expression on that little girl's face is priceless.
