Boo boo day


Some pretty images to calm and relax you and me! Today is my 6th foot surgery! I am a pro at it now. I must be flat with leg up for this week (in the ugly grey boot thing 24/7) and then next week I should be able to hobble around.
 I prefer to do the surgery when it is warm so I don't have to be cold or worry about any slick sidewalks. I caught this early this time so I hope the ugly boot will be a short 4 week visitor. I will still be posting-- reading books--watching movies on my laptop and maybe working on some holiday stuff. I just can not watch TV all day way too boring.
I need to keep my feet in good shape so I can walk and walk all over Paris and other vacation spots. You see so much more when you walk.
Have a Pink Day!

Garden thoughts for 2015


These are two plants I want to add for next spring. One is Princess Alexandra clematis top photo, other is Princess Blush verbena everyone seems to be sold out right now on line and at local garden shops.
Gardening is a lesson in patience, persistence and planning. All good life skills. I do a lot of planning because I limit my colors in  the garden to pinks and white and tiny bit of purple and I really try for soft blush pinks when possible. I am always learning about new varieties. 
I enjoy planning ahead in all areas makes life a lot less stressful-- I try and plan out vacations and holiday events as well as thinking ahead for garden.

What is old is new again...to me



I've been going to very nice resale shops and have found some real treasures. I love the Teri John suit in pink and black, the Talbots dress and jacket with a hint of sparkle and the Dana Buchman ultra suede like shell and pants.I spent about 55.00 for the above items and the dress and the suit were never worn --they dont look worn. I try and pick classic cut clothing and stick to my go to colors of pink, black, green, royal blue.
It is so fun finding a treasure at one of the shops.

Persian kitty Simba Kahn


This is Simba Kahn owned by the wonderful, responsible Persian breeder from CA. Molly Barr. I am on the wait list for a Persian from her. 
All of my current cats are rescue kitties and I still volunteer at the no-kill cat shelter here in Marietta. I have had Persians before and they are of a sweet nature, fun cats with a laid  back personality usually.
Simba Kahn is about 7 I think. I love the pink tongue sticking out! Those big baby eyes and sweet face are so appealing. It may be a year or more before my little love is born and comes home to me but I am going to keep waiting. When I find a dog or cat breeder that is responsible and  raises them in a household setting I am willing to wait. So someday my Persian will come home and join our little band of happy cats and tiny dogs.
Are you waiting on a little love?
Have a Pink day!

My birthday


 Madison Court house 




 Several pretty old homes I like.



Today is my birthday. I won't tell you which one! I am holding at 39. For my birthday I wanted to go to my favorite tiny city of Madison, GA and have a custard style chocolate ice cream cone at Ricky D's. Ricky D's is new right on the square and so yummy. They also show movies in the back theatre and  sell hot dogs and other fountain foods too.
Pink Boy bought me this big lion's head for the garden. We are both Leo's one week apart so we thought a lion would be nice in the garden.
The cats and dogs saved up and bought me another pretty porcelain tea caddy and a swan!
I had a fun birthday sight seeing around Madison, eating and shopping along the square.Even the street signs in Madison are pretty.
Have a Pink day!

Things I am smitten with..

 Just a few fun things that I like or that I am longing for-- some eye candy today.
 Dragon napkins from No. 411 in Savannah on my holiday wish list!!


 A tea caddy I just got so pretty

Just a few things that caught my eye in last week or so. The clematis on the bottom is Princess Alexandra and seems to be sold out at all the vendors in USA! Maybe I can buy it next year. Pink Boy did some "pruning " of my huge white Henri clematis that I have had for years at the edge of the arbor and it appears to be gone! Men like to cut stuff off too much!! 
Have a Pink day!

Merci, thank you for the sweet pea seeds

I love getting mail and I got the best kind of mail yesterday. Some sweet pea seeds from a kind lady in Lithuania Mrs. Erika Jureniene! I guess she reads my blog and recalled how I love sweet peas. It is too hot to plant them now but I will plant then for spring growing next year in April. 
Merci, thank you Mrs. Jureniene!!
What a kind thing to do and it made my day!  I  hope you all 
Have a Pink day!
