Dreamy...


Somehow... in our near one hundred~degree temperatures... this sweet little Fairy Rose is determined to bloom...

I've sprayed her with a gentle mist of cool water... a thank~you of sorts for making my hot, hot late~Summers days a bit dreamier... I don't know how she does it... keeps her "cool" in all this heat!... xoxo... **6pm... Updated weather just now... cooler temps tonight and thunderstorms predicted... Yippee!...

Un Cadeau de Mon Amour...


My stunning antique French mantel clock... a gift from my love...

She chimes on the hour and half hour... with a melody still so hauntingly sweet and enchanting after all these years...inscribed inside on the movement is a French name that is illegible for the most part... and dated "Paris 1886"... my thoughts are full of beautiful stories from days gone by... today I shall daydream about what life was like in Paris back then... oooh, the secrets this old clock must hold... perhaps she will share some with me today... xoxo...
