Today is "road trip" day

So we are caravaning with friends to get to our destination. It is always more fun but does take more time. The weather is hot and may be getting hotter bit isn't that how summer should be. One of my favorite summer scenes is cut hay fields, either the little bales or even better the giant round bales. Here is a photo from our day.

Redecorating with what I already have

I have been collecting "pretty" things as long as I can remember. Some things immediately find a place and others get put away, while yet others wait until I bring out their full potential. I have been inspired and brave lately wanting to get out all the things I have and either use them or make them ready for use. So for the last few days I have been redoing mine and my husbands bedroom, poor guy, he really is being a sport and sees how much I am loving it and at least says he likes it too.
I would like to share some of my newest vignettes with you. In this first one the great fabric is a garage sale piece I had forgotten having stashed it away. The art pieces are two originals from some fantastic artists the vintage wooden boxes have been one of my latest obsessions, I have collected quite a few. This one I painted orange. The two perfume bottles were my grandmothers from grandpa, one being from France when he passed thru there in the Navy. Just so you know my newest color obsession is orange.

One of the reasons I am so busy

We have such a short growing season in Montana that I fanatically plant things to get it out of my system before winter sets again. I did plant a herb pot this summer that I hope I can keep growing in the winter.
Here is a photo of my roses in full glory. My delphinium spikes in full bloom and my begonia which can't seem to bloom fast enough.

Happy Summer

Again I am beyond busy and one of the first things to go is my blog. I alway have so many good intentions. I will continue to try to improve.
I am starting again with trivial matters trying to make it easy to post.
Right now I am living playing with different photo editing programs. Here is a photo from this morning.
