A Beautiful Lady Remembered

Farrah

She was beautiful.
So many of us in our
teens wanted to be
just like her.

We tried to fashion ourselves

after this very pretty lady.

We all wanted her hair &

her big beautiful smile.

Alot of us grew up with her.

She entertained us , she made

us laugh & she made us cry.

She had a wonderful heart.

She was smart &

she was very brave. I will miss you Farrah.

Green Tomatoes !

With all this rain we've been
having here in Mass. my tomatoes
have been getting bigger but
not redder ! I finally picked
these 3 big ones that were growing
right outside this window
on my balcony. These three were
growing right on the same stem &
had no place else to grow. I decided
that maybe putting them on my
window sill might make them
turn red. Time will tell !

My Visitor

Not really a "visitor", I guess , because
he lives in
" SuzeeeZ's Tranquil Garden".
He comes by to eat,take a cool
drink of water,bird watch,&
relax.
And maybe to tease my dogs,
just a little bit !

Tree Frog ??

This is who we saw last night while
sitting around a campfire at the
neighbor's house .
You know those frogs that make
that really loud noise & you keep
looking high and low to find them &
just never do .........well this is one
of those little guys.
My husband was persistant & kept
following the noise with flashlight &
camera in hand. I went over when he
said he found him & finally had a
look. This little guy was just sitting on
a leaf and was not a bit afraid of us.
Finally out came that loud chirping
noise and out came the bubble
beneath his chin. Do frogs have
chins? Anyways.......this is the great
shot my husband took & now
every time I hear one of these guys
I will think of this picture !

"The Candy Apple" Fairy Party Room & Powder Room

These are the rest of the pictures
that I took at the cute tea room
we stopped at. Besides the bakery
room and the tea room itself,
there was this sweet fairy room
where little girls could have their
birthday parties.
The room was so cheery with the
chandelier and the neat fairy murals
on all of the walls.
There was also a table with a
big pile of fairy wings, crowns &
magic wands for the girls to use
for their parties. I should have
taken a picture of all of it. It was
too cute.
Mixed in with the whimsical
decor were a few old pieces.
Something different to look at
everywhere you turned.
This crown clock and these cute pink
fairy curtains were in the powder room!
More to look at in the powder room
while powdering your nose.
We will definitely visit
this unique
little place again.

A Cute Tea Room

My husband & I stopped at this cute
country tea room one Saturday
afternoon when we were out exploring.
The tea room was open for a little
while longer & we were happy
about that , but the doll museum
wasn't so we'll definitely be stopping
here again.
Yummy pastries &
a very cute atmosphere !
Cozy
Delicious !
If you are every riding through
Gill, Mass. on route 2
through the Mohawk Trail,
you need to stop here!
You'll be glad you did.
In my next post I will show
you the adorable fairy
party room and also the very
cute powder room that
are both a part of this sweet
tea room!

My Favorite Handmade Soap !

I Love This Soap !!
I've tried many home made
soaps through the years but I have to
say that this is the creamiest and
nicest smelling soap I have ever used.
The coconut lemon poppy is the best!
When I smell it I could just take a
big bite out of it! I love that she added
the poppy seeds as an exfoliant.
this combination is wonderful.
I've also tried her banana brulee &
that is just as wonderful. Can't wait to
try a few more.
I'm lucky enough to have found this
shop on Etsy.
