Blue glass in the window and more ...

* ~ ... There is nothing more better for me than Blue glass in the window with the sun shinning through, It's just so pretty to me.. It warms my heart and feels good ...

I really love waking up in the morning and walking into my kitchen and see it light up through the warmth of the sun...

The Turquoise Bombay bottle my daughter gave to me.. I love it.. My tiny African violet has also done well in this window.. It wasn't doing anything after I bought it with blooms on it... they just went away and there it was sadly looking. but look at it now in this window it's lovin it..

It was in this little tiny pot.. so little.. but I transfered into this little one and It's just so happy now.. I have another one in the window to the left and it's stuck in place lol.. so I moved it over to this window so we will see if it too comes alive..

The other large one to the left Is growing crazy man... the leaves started out tiny and now they are huge.. I don't remember the name of it but it's orginal start was from my great Aunt Vera.. some fourty years ago..  she since long ago passed on ... It's almost to the ceiling.. I had it big before but it had got broken.. from moving and I have a part of it in another spot but it's large but the leaves are not I think this window is magical..

I love my ducks.... I will never give them up ...I'm Off to the Garden to pick some tiny flowers for my vase.  Soon they will be all gone until Spring.. A friend from Myspace days sent this to me.. I love this little vase maybe before was a creamer it was featured I believe in Country Living.. I just love when I get or find something and it appears in a great magazine..

Sweet Love... 

Tiny tomatoes still coming out.. nice .. picked herbs to use in my Stuffing, I'm not celebrating but we decided to have a celebration of life at Mama's house we have done a lot of cleaning ... It's not all that but clean enough to bring family together.. We haven't been together since Mama died 8 months ago.. *
so before we all drift off to some other land I think it's time..

Last two large Tomatoes.. and figs from the tree in the back it's the neighbors but it extended into my place, I cut it before but it just came back stronger .. so this year it made tons of figs.. but now the leaves are falling off and the figs are leaving ..

There are some way up high but I couldn't reach them.. It actually a lovely looking tree...

Lettuce and herbs.. parsley chives thyme the silly snails got into my lettuce I found two tiny ones.. darn things good thing I went to look through the lettuce this morning ..I might have had lettuce lace.. lol..

Don't you love going into the Garden early morning I do. . It's the most peaceful time,... just the birds are up and about singing a little ..

Lemons.... *  There is a old Lemon tree in the very back of the Garden the first two years it was barely producing Lemons, but this year they popped out all over the place.. I love the Garden it's sad I have to leave one day again but the next Garden will be mine to keep.. Can't wait...

Berries are still coming.. *  hopefully I will get them for morning Oatmeal before the birds do..

Nice indeed, it's always a wonderful morning when  there's a good trip to the Garden...  wouldn't you agree... this bowl is new it's from temptations (Q.V.C.)  this is my second set there are several pieces to them  i really love the pattern on this one.  It's called Floral Lace, pretty name.. Temptations has there own site as well.. but a lot of the time you can get good deals on it with Q.V.C. ..
From Susan Branch.... she is an Aurther and Blogger etc... I long time ago found a recipe book from her at a goodwill and fell in love with her.. later over the years I found her blog looked at a bit but really didn't have time with Mama being sick and all.. Recently I have spent time back reading her blog which I truly love.. It's for me quite Inspirational..
The night before me and Vee made her lovely Brownies.. gosh they smelled so good no one could hardly wait she said to get the full affect to wait.. hah.. well let me tell you that really didn't happen we were like brownie addicts trying to eat hot brownies. lol.. terrible but they were surely fantastic.. have to make them again real soon my only complaint as well as everyones else's was Why didn't we make a double batch lol..

Ruby Red and Clear Glass

Pretty candlestick holders, from the Thrift town across the bay when I went to visit with my daughter and grandchildren.. I saw these and loved them right from the start.. Two of them just 7 dollars for the both.. I like the style.. It speaks Victorian to me for sure.. I love the double holders and the etched flowers..they are more prettier in person..

Tried to get a close up but it didn't come out to good.. I just love their cuts and curves Fancy I'd say, wouldn't you..

Just lovely, I love the red dish and candlesticks... I love red I sometimes often think my house or kitchen should have I decided to take off the Autumn table and make this one with the new Clear Depression Glass dishes that I had found at the Goodwill..

The red glass plates are from Avon, Cape Cod they are called I just love them.. so red and pretty and lovely with the white and clear glass... I know you are all thinking it's for Christmas but it's not I just wanted to change my table and use the new clear plates..

Salt & Pepper shakers so sweet I couldn't get the top on right though this time for some reason.. I have to give it another try.. but I adore them..

A Creamer & Sugar set, just as sweet... Pink Red Roses... I can't live without Roses I buy them myself these days.. I had quite a few given to me over the years.. but I have to say I don't mind buying my own.. I love love Roses ... and fill my bedroom living room and dinning table with them always..

Ruby Red Cape cod glass napkin rings...  I think I should switch to white linen napkins..

Ruby Red Cape cod serving dish... they are so pretty in the sun light..

And Tea, from yesteryears... love this so much.. I hope and wish you a most enchanted weekend full of love & laughter..  Blessings my friends
with love
Janice................ ps.. I feel better today thank you for your kind words and friendship..
