This sweet little white rose bush is a 4 generation plant. This is the first year that is has so many roses on it. I think it was in shock for a couple years after is was transplanted when we moved. I have a 3 generation pink rose bush that is LOADED and will be blooming any day..can't wait to take photos of that bush.
Here is a better photo of Little Miss Toothless and her new garage sale doll. Kailee made her a necklace and a bracelet for herself and requested that I take "their photo"...

Yesterday on the way to one of the booths...a GARAGE SALE SIGN JUMPED AT ME...and this is what I HAD TO BUY....the sweetest hand painted dish that has little legs on it...1.00 also the cutest little Longaberger basket with liner, plastic protector and hanging tag..1.00 and then

This wicker chair. Notice the unique shape and it's in pretty good condition...only $4.00 and it's comfortable. This will go to one of the shops.

The door on the right is the NEW DOOR...just need to do the trim...lovely I think...the door on the left is a closet door...OLD one that will get replaced this summer....Sorry the photos aren't the's not a wide hallway and it's hard to get a good angle for a photo.

Poor little Jackson Brown....I had to take him to the vet (not the one where Scout went) and he has terrible allergies. His eyes are swollen and watery, ears are red and in between his pads are he is on some eye cream and pills to help him feel better.
It's another wonderful day...sunny and just perfect, however we need rain...."they" say it may rain tomorrow...speaking of which we are going to a wedding at 11 AM...and the reception is outside and dinner is at 4:30 PM...
Sunday is dinner at Mom's for her birthday and I'm bringing a broccoli salad. Easy and Yummy.
NO SALES for us tomorrow...that's fine...the check book is looking a little LOW....
Deb :)
P.S. Thanks Connie for the card!! I sure hope we can all get together this year. "HI" to my friends who read my blog...

A Longaberger basket for only $1.00? Love it...I just love Longaberger baskets! Great Find, Deb.

My husband and I made a new rose garden this year...some plants we moved and some are new...i guess we have quite a few years before they are as beautiful as yours! (or generations)

Stay Cozy, Carrie

JB looks so cute laying there asleep. I hope he gets better soon. Your finds were great! I never find a Longaberger basket that cheap. Your door looks great. I know it's been a lot of hard work. Hope you are having a great weekend! Twyla

I really like the photo of Miss Toothless and her doll, very cute. Sorry to hear Jackson Brown is not feeling well, he looks so cute. I can't believe you got a wicker chair for $4.00, what a steal. Tell your mom happy birthday and have fun.

I have a "stray" white rose this year ...loaded with buds.
Did not plant it ...must've blown in with the summer winds.

BUT, I'll keep it!

Joy said...
