~ I Love Spring Time, Anytime

I think we are at the end of all our company visiting. Most of our relatives live out of state so we don't have a lot of visitors anymore. But for the last couple of months we made up for it. There hasn't been much time for visiting my favorite blogs, so I have catching up to do!

The season of spring is quite short here. Sometimes after its fleeting appearance and we feel like it's summer already, we get a little reprieve when a little dash of coolness returns. I love those days and night. But this might be one of the last days that can I keep the door to the porch. Cody Puppy loves being able to just come in and out. He especially likes that wrought iron lounge chair out there.

I was looking for a little inspiration, and came across gardening pictures from years past. It was surprising to see them. Each year is a new beginning of a love affair with annuals in pots. I can't help myself.

Looking for some inspiration. Spring and summer colors are calling.

Sometimes inspiration is in your own backyard and front yard. Or maybe it was there last year or the year before. I certainly have nothing to look at right now. But I know how to get my hands dirty. Now to find a few extra hours each day.

See Y'all Soon!
Thank your for stopping by.

*Stacey, a bath cabinet is the best place to start with a paint project. The antiqued white finish is really very easy. Just make sure you start with a good paint job to begin with when doing the white. The rest is easy!

~ Happy Easter

We found this lovely vintage rosary on one of our little trips close to home. I had been looking at over-sized rosaries for years but this is the first one I bought. Maybe it was the fascination I had as a child of the large rosaries the nuns wore. It looks beautiful just sitting on a table.

Happy Easter to You & Your Loved Ones

~ Savannah, 1895 Inn Bed & Breakfast

This has to be one of our favorite places we have ever stayed. Not only is it beautifully decorated, but Ed is a fabulous cook! Food is one of the top things we look for in a bed & breakfast after the other important things.

We only began staying at Bed & Breakfast a few years ago after hearing good reports from friends like Rhoda. This particular one was rated high on tripadvisor and an ol' internet friend Deb had stayed there, too. There is no parking except in front of the these old houses. But that didn't seem to a problem. And the fire station is directly across the street. That made me want to run. But we never heard a siren of any kind in the 3 days were in Savannah.

The owners have a fantastic collection of art and antiques. This is the foyer.

Beautiful , comfortable area for sitting and relaxing & wine and cheese in the evening.

Every morning Ed has this table set so beautifully with old china and crystal. As lovely as it is, the food still stands out as the best thing to check out!
(The business was for sale, so someone else might be cooking now.)

We stayed in ...
"The Sovereign Room, at the top, front of the house, has a large arched window with a view of the spires of the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. A massive four-poster canopy bed welcomes you to this terra-cotta colored room with rich gold and cream fabrics. An oriental carpet is framed by the original heart-pine floors; and antique oriental water colors, Japanese wood-block prints, and Japanese scrolls from Kyoto cover the walls. The Sovereign Room - with its luxurious bathroom with extra-long soaking tub."
It has the largest bathroom in the house!

I'm looking through pictures that might be of interest to you all.
See Ya' Soon!
