As if....

Well just about a hundred things have been going on...
My head is just been going in circles...
Much irritation.. but it will all be okay in the end...
I know...
Well let's start with my dear Liliana, my oldest daughter's daughter
She got burnt really bad last week
by a tourch.  She has been in the San Francisco burn center.  She just 
had a operation yesterday to graft skin from her thigh to put on her leg, which got
burnt from the knee down to her foot just awful
horribly awful She is only 10 .. she pulled through the operation but
is in much pain and me well I'm just twisted about the whole darn thing..
It all happened because of her Uncle not realizing he should have things like that
locked up.  His silly wife said her and her younger brother and cousin could play in the back 
of the truck, what mother in her right mind would say that...
Well let me not start
But my Liliana is suffering to the nines
it has sadden my heart tremendously and my daughter is beside her self.. 
I love them both dearly.  I haven't gone because the kidos have been sick and I don't 
want Liliana to get more sick and make things worse..
And there are other issues going on which I don't even wish to discuss at this point..
WEll the good news is...
We, me and my two sons are working on the first room in the front of the house.  The boys have
stripped it down Monday the contractor will come and sheet rock and mud and tape etc.. So that's a 
positive note right.. so lets change the pace all together ...
Like for instance, my new teapot came finally and it's just so pretty... It makes me want to smile.
It's bright and cheerie.. 
And as if I needed another one, yep I did...
This is one of the Hall Victorian ones that were special made I love it's character I can see it in a Victorian home sitting on a lovely set table and some charming women sitting about having some tea.. and lovely scones... 
And as if... I needed some more plates, Yes I did.. I really needed them to match my other Greengate dishes..well I actually ordered these back when I first ordered they made a mistake
which was to my benefit cause I gained four 
white with navy blue star salad plates.. 
so I didn't mind having to wait on these.. I mean I already had been waiting about two years from the get go..
so I'm okay..But these are salad plates so pretty don't you think so...
They say Spring all over them like the teapots...
My Spring Table setting.. 
with my vintage Homer Laughlin teacups...
They work just perfect...
It's always nice when things are together and all nice and pretty I love it ...
Sweet Greengate egg cups and a little soft pastel bunnie for tea lights .. 
I found him at Safeway store, but they only had one.. 
I tried a different store and they had none.. 
One is better than none..

And the Garden....
Do you happen to know what this is.. I have been waiting forever to find this as well..
It's Queen Anne's Lace.. finally I have found it and when I did 
there was just three plants.. I'm so very happy .. I can't wait till it grows out and up 
and I see those pretty lace flowers all over...
This one is African Queens Lace.. I haven't a clue but the picture shows the flowers quite the same..
so I thought what the heck lets give it a try and see what comes of it..
I put it in the white Garden on the side of the shed..
I also bought this Lemon balm...
smells so good..
I love these little Yellow Pansy's with Purple edgings.. so sweet and delicate..
I don't remember the name of this but they are sweet tiny Purple blue flowers..
They had another one of those tall pots.. love them a lot...
This is what makes me happy and feel and forget yesterdays troubles..
wishing you a lovely evening..
And If I haven't told you lately...
I enjoy your visits and sweet comments
and love to visit you all when It's possible..
with love


  1. Oh my Janice. I will keep your little angel in my prayers. What an awful thing for that child to go through. I am sure your daughter is devastated.

    May God ease her pain as she goes through all those painful treatments.

    Your Greengate china is stunning. I have it on my wish list. The salad plates are my favorite.



  2. I will be praying for your sweet granddaughter. I hope she has a speedy and easy recovery. Your teapots and dishes are beautiful. Congratulations on the work being done on your home. It will all come together soon.

  3. Hi Janice, So very sorry to hear of your granddaughter's burn. Praying that her pain will lessen and she will heal soon.
    Your table is so lovely with all the spring/pastel pretties!

  4. Oh Janice, I am so, so, so sorry to hear about your sweetie! Please know she will be in my prayers! You and your daughter will also be in my prayers...

    Your china is simply lovely, my dear. It would be a joy to have a cup of tea with you. Hugs!

  5. Janice, I'm so sorry to hear about your granddaughter's burn, that is awful. I hope she is doing ok, and will say a prayer. Your new tea pots are pretty, and I love the blue one. You always seem to put a nice table together with your tea pot and tea cups and different plates.

    I'm feeling sad today because my brother-in-law just passed away, and I got a call this morning with the sad news. Your post today was comforting, thank you Janice.

    love, ~Sheri

  6. Oh how awful for your dear granddaughter! I am praying for her!
