More babble..

Good lovely Friday morning, the view from Mama's back deck is amazing.. I have always loved taking photos from there Sunsets and Sunrises.. It's a wide open deck.. But my heart's desire is to make it a closed in deck with large windows so I can have privacy.. but as you know I believe everything to be so  far feched. But everyone keep saying don't give up have faith so that's what I'm doin... I'm going home today to finish my Spring clean agenda.. then back here Saturday morning to start the process of more cleaning maybe with the things in Mama's room with a sidewalk sale I have to do something with all this stuff.. "Nightmare place"
It has such great potential but who know if I can accomplish it.. Honestly I'm tired out. everydays my hands hurt have such pain in them.. my body and surely my mind is tired.. I ask God continuously to give me strength and help.. I can't do it alone anymore.. My motor has pooped out..Sometimes I just want to cry at all this mess. I keep trying to find the brighter side of it all but don't see that light at the end of the tunnel at all. I don't mean to complain but I have to get it off my chest...

Mama, just before she left us, her best friend by her side.. since they were 16 I believe.. I talked with her yesterday she and her hubby have many health problems now to.. they are 79 like Mama.. I treasure this photo of them.. Dorthy is her name.. Mama loved her dearly and she loved Mama.. yesterday she told me I can't believe she is not here and I'm sure you feel more.. I can't either at so many levels.. It feels as if she is somewhere away.. some reality steps in when other things arrise.. but we all feel strange Mama was the last of everyone here.. The rest are gone now.. It's so sad.. I never dreamed it would be like this..

 So lets switch it up before I start crying away...
Lookie what I found recently going through Mama's piles on Magazines
Yes can you believe it, It must have been one Mama forgot to give me.. brand new still covered still in the plastic. I was so excited.  This is one magazine I truly miss, wish she'd bring it back.. 

"Home Companion"

Remember all her lovely photos
 I really enjoyed this magazine

Victoria and Home Companion
very nice.. 
well i'm off we have to pick up Isaiah at 11 am 
Wishing you all a lovely weekend
with love

Autumn is on it's way... Yay..

Hello everyone, I have been home at my original house sort of spring cleaning so to speak.. It was a dusty busty mess.. Im getting ready for Autumn and Fall.. my most favorite time of year.. I just adore it.. So I have changed my room to Browns and Pinks and Beiges some Roses.. My photos didn't come out how dark they looked in my phone which I thought to be strange should have used my I-pad..
 Alittle bit rusty color too.. I haven't finished yet just accomplished the bed and linens..and the same nite stand, I added a Small Banner to the Wall above the bed, which I purchased from a blogger, but I can't remember the name and I forgot the card with her name on it.. so silly of me.. I will tell you later because I want her to get the credit for her banner, it's so sweet..
It's just a small banner, but so sweet.. I love it, the colors are very vibrant only my photo's just aren't showing it.. the photo's don't do it any justice.
 There this is a bit better.. it's tied with sweet vintage ribbons... Sage green and a dark pink.. 
 O so pretty they are.................
Going down the line.. 
When I woke up this morning everything felt wonderful and clean and crisp.. Just like Autumn

Duevet covers are so nice to have for the fact you can purchase them they don't take up as much room as quilt or comforters..therefore you can buy many of them..
I found this lovey brand new brown one months back at the second hand store and later found some nice lighter brown shams.. 
then recently I found a multi quilt looking kind of sham with browns beiges and a bit of rust.
and yesterday when I was cleaning the hall closet I found some Roseish brown throw rugs.. nice.. 
they all mix in together and perfect for Autumn/Fall
My tea set Mama bought for me we never got to use it because I was looking for tea cups to match
It was expensive. We were suppose to have a tea party with them just me and her.. 
well I guess when I find the cups and saucers I will have to have one in her memory.

"Dear sweet Mama how I miss you
when the days are long,
I think of you,
when they are sunny 
I think of you
when it's just any time
I think of you
Your always in my mind
always in my thoughts
I'm surround by you
every moment of the day
and night
I always think of You
Love you Dear sweet Mama..."
"Rest In Peace"
I hope your getting ready for Autumn/Fall
with love
