Helo there dearest, welcome to my blog. The best place for me to express what I love most. All my love of vintage things. I mostly love the Victorian era as well as things from the fifties.. I love to cook and bake and spend time with my family. I thought and believed I loved Autumn the most, but I've come to find each special thing about each season, to find the beauty in it... And through blogging I have found those things... I have surrounded myself with all the things that I love... Victorian depression glass, teapots and cups linens and lace... I also crochet vintage doilies as well... I hope that you enjoy each and every visit with me... *HAPPY SPRING LOVES....*

So now it's Raining, really

        Good morning everyone,  it is raining lighty maybe it is a April shower...  We have had three days of crazy wind, but only in the early afternoon throught the night.  Then in the morning was calm to start all over again...  Just silly...
        The first morning was so lovely I had my first tea in the garden...  And thought I really need to 
get my seeds in...  It is way past due, because of the ugly weather...  Hers's My golden opportunity...  
        I took out my my Yellow Chintz teapot that came from England I so love the lady for shipping it to me...  She normally did not ship to the states...  And everytime I think of it she sent me the teapot a 
Creamer and Sugar for 29.00 dollars.  It warms my heart to know that there are still kind people in this world...   A dream come true...
        I wanted this pot since 1994 when this version came out...  I would see it in the Victoria magazines...  I would dream but could not afford it and at that time I did not know much about 
teapots or I was not really really into them like now, but I surely have developed a love for them 
now...
        Since I do not have a tea cup that matches I picked my rich Blue & White Willow cup from 
Japan which I love as well...
       Then I picked some tiny flowers and put them in Mamas little crystal vase...




       A pretty White Rose through the fence...



        I have switched the garden around a bit...  They say it is good to change the areas of your vegetables each year...
        I changed this part a bit...
        I put the lattices here to put my green beans and cucumbers, let's hope it work's...
          I planted seed's here, radishes, green onion's, beet's, ice burg lettuce, just a little bit because 
It will be just me who eat's them...  I washed up my little oval bird bath and moved it here to...  Last year the darn raccoon's kept making it dirty,  lol maybe they won't see it here...  Haha... 

       That is the other side of the garden I planted the tomato's there and I will put the zucchini  
there too.  I planted the zucchini seed's in small planter's in the little hot house...   I get a lot of icky slug's and they will eat them up before they grow high enough...
        The apple tree in next stores garden...  The apple's are forming already...
        I like the fact that it hang's over into my garden...
        My broken teapot, this year I planted seeds in it...
         The ground is wet now and as I'm finishing writing the rain came poring down...

        So it is definetely going to be a rainy day so maybe some embroidery,  I have been working 
on my pillow case...  Maybe bake something...  Feels like a cold winter's day instead of Spring time...
        





                          Have a most lovely day, with love Janice...

From wind to total calmness to windy rain...

        The early evening was wonderful yesterday,  it became so calm after some crazy wind for most of the day...  I went out cleaned up the leaves as I often do...  Because when I don't they pile up to much and it seems harder to take care of...  The sky was amazingly lovely... And it was calm as could be...  I wanted to get my seeds in but thought maybe not I'm just getting over being sick so better not...  This weather has stopped me from getting things that I normally have done long ago done...  Silly weather indeed...
        I did the day before get this little spot of dirt turned over, my goodness it's takes forever these days to get something done,  more so because of my bad back...  Otherwise I don't believe it would be so hard...  Here I decided to put my lettuce, carrots, green onions, things like that...  
       I did also manage to get two tomatoes in,  one is a purple variety...  I can not wait to see them...
       My Gladiolus are coming up,  but I'm sad because I forgot to put back my Purple ones and they dried up for some reason...  Never had that happen before...

        Big white clouds in the evening....
        The Garden so clean and peaceful,  I just love it...  My heart is always in the Garden...  


        Yep, those are rain clouds forming....  Darn...
       The little strawberry patch, they are already making strawberries...  My grandson Isaiah loves strawberries so when he saw them his face lit up, but I told them they are not ready yet...  He knows they are red..  So he said ok grandma, he loves the Garden too...


        The back part of the Garden where the Lemon tree is...  I so wish there was grass... It would be so nice...
        One of my other roses bloomed...  It has another bud on it getting ready to open...  I just had to pick one and bring it in...  Since we are having ugly weather that way I can enjoy it for a while instead to the wind blowing it away...
         Here is my latest creation in crocheting...
        A little bird, I made it by watching a youtube video,  the woman used these little special rubber bands to make a toy, so I caculated it and crocheted it with yarn...  I'm so happy he came out pretty well with a few minner missed stitches I think...  It was hard to say because she used the bands... i'm happy with the results...
        This is where she will sit on a wreath I have made...
        



        Have a most glorious day today...  With much love Janice...
