...More on family and another giveaway

Pop on over and see Sandi for yet another giveaway! She is a wonderful lady and you will enjoy her blog.

Well, we are to start having more of the flooding rain that has been here for so long now. Apparently it will rain for a month here..yikes... we only had mild flooding in our area the last time..but a month...whew.. we might be in trouble.

I love reading that my American friends are so looking forward to Spring. We are just starting into Autumn, but very little sign of it yet. One of the things I have never mentioned too much about on here is that I have a third daughter. I respect her wishes for privacy, but without overstepping the mark, I will just mention that she lives with her new husband not far from Philadephia in the USA. She was married over there last June, and is making her home in a very beautiful setting in Pensylvania. The winters are very unusual for her, and included her first sightings of snow. A lot of Australians have never actually seen snow. She missess our beaches and hot weather, she is such a little beach girl. But I know she is enjoying her stay in her lovely little cottage that she takes great care in decorating. She has her mothers love for decorating as so have all my daughters, although, they all have very different styles.

This is my daughters first home. Just gorgeous! They love this dear little house.

This is in their yard! How lucky are they

My daughter just loves mismatched chairs.. aren't they just the cutest?

I just love this. Her own private little corner.

A little decorative bedside table. How cute.

And of course her house would not be complete without............

her touch of home.

What and adorable little cottage! She is not that far from me as I am about 3 hrs. north of Philly in NE PA. Our weather here is very changable for sure!
Until later!


What a pretty home your daughter has!! Thanks so much for the visit and you had asked me about the lace on my fireplace, my Mom actually bought that for me at a flea market, it is very old and mine was made for a fireplace so it is one long piece.

It's always nice to have your own space where you can make it your very own and your daughter is very lucky to have that adorable place to play around in. I love the open backyard too.

Your daughter has a very lovely cottage, her grounds are beautiful too. I bet its tough having your daughter live so far away from you. I honestly don't know how she can cope with the weather, quite a big change.

What a beautiful home! It's fun to see what the homes look like on the side of the world.

I think it would lovely for you and your daughter to have a tea party with just the two of you. That would make a wonderful memory.
