~ Charlotte Lyons, Kim's Daisy Cottage & Me

Thanks for your kind comments on the last collage. I've put a couple on Ebay, and hope to get some smaller, quicker ones done for Ebay & Etsy. It's a learning process since I'm having to figure out everything about selling. Buying I'm good at! :)
Tomorrow we are going to swim with the dolphins at Discovery Cove!!!! I'm excited. Saturday we will take in a day at Sea World. So I'll be away for a couple of days. Hope your weekend is a good one!

The other day I was shuffling around the books on the table looking for one, and I noticed an outdoor garden one, and who did I find has been in my house for years? Charlotte Lyons! I had no idea how accomplished she was when I've been visiting her blog. It was only last week that I finally noticed her sidebar and saw the books she has written. Sorry, Charlotte, I need to slow down. And it is such a nice book, too. I get it out around this time each year and enjoy it all over again.

So I went over to see Charlotte and read a bit more, but what post popped up? One about my dear friend Kim of Daisy Cottage fame. I was getting ready to write a post about sweet Kim. But Charlotte, who is a writer, did a much better job of course. Everything Charlotte had to say is what I feel and have told Kim a few times. That girl can find the best things for a few bucks and make them look so charming.

It's pretty impossible if you come by here that you didn't already know about these two ladies. But I wanted to just let both of them know how special they are to me, as well as to most of you.


  1. Ahhhh, Donna, you KNOW how much I love you! Thank you friend.... and have a WONDERFUL time swimming with the dolphins - you so deserve it!

  2. Donna...This is another beautiful post!!

    I love that ME book, also.

    As you know, I've "known" Kim awhile and know how special she is. It's great getting to know Charlotte, too!

    Have fun this weekend!!

  3. Have a great time swimming with the dolphins. Sounds like fun!
    Loved your post today.

  4. Thanks so much, Donna...such kind words and a link too! That book was a great girlfriends' adventure we three had, so much of it in Carmel where we fell in love with every cottage and garden. My pink house and pink playhouse are in there too...sniff, sniff, and my garden, how I miss it all! thanks again....such a nice surprise! xoC

  5. I enjoy both of their blogs so much! Each is so creative and talented.

    I hope that you enjoy your sounds wonderful!


  6. I have swam with the dolphins a wish I had for years and it was everything I dreamed of and more! Wait until you are in the water with them surrounding you and when they kiss your cheek well I have goose bumps all over again! As for Kim at Daisy Cottage well what can I say that you didn't..she RoCks!! hugs NG

  7. Oh, I have that book too and didn't even realize Charlotte has been visiting me for years! I'll have to check it out all over again.

  8. I just had to go over & meet Charlotte for myself. Love her site, so will definitely make it a fave. There seem to be a lot of famous bloggers out there. Thanks for the heads up, Donna. Have a great time with those dolphins!

  9. I love that ME book, the projects are great and very doable! Yep, Kim is truly amazing! Have a great time!


  10. I cannot believe how long it's been since I've been here at your blog....I can't believe it, I think your blog link was accidentally deleted from my list (bad me!) So now I am going to do some catch up reading. (shh, I'm supposed to be on a blog break)
    Happy May!

  11. Hey, Donna
    I love this book too...can't beat ME for true creativity.

    I tagged you. Details on my blog. I'm new to this, so accept my apologies and ignore if this is bad blogging etiquette. Enjoy your weekend.

  12. I have that book too! I need to go to her blog now :)
    The dolphin pics are great and I loved the tags you sent Naturegirl!!

  13. Those are two of my faves too. I am also coming back to see you more often.
