Thank you, Laura!!

 
While I was riding my horse all about the countryside in search of evening wear....I remembered something I have longed for...
One of the things I have so wanted is to get back to my sewing room...well I just popped in this afternoon to find some black taffeta and velvets...and while I was going through my pattern box and dreaming of the days when Laura Ashley reigned in my wardrobe...well.....ah....I looked up and there she was....my English fairy godmother.....I showed her a few patterns....told her I needed something by midnight...she waved her magic scissors and measuring tape.....and    ..here it is!!!!!


 
Simple elegance!
Thank you, my dear!
 


What to wear??

 
 
The The Willow Manor Ball will commence in a few hours,
 and I have no clue
as to what I will be wearing. I do have a mask...
hmm??? Off to the wardrobe ....

Welcome October & Soup!

 
 
Nothing says autumn like a great bowl of beef vegetable soup!
Yes, you guessed it, that is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on the side. We love soups here at the cottage.
What is your favorite fall fare?

Past Loves

Chelsea 1987 - 95
Every time I drive past the turn off to a little winding road off  Highway 280 on my trips to Birmingham, my mind goes back to the time I drove to a warm country home and found this runt of the litter who stole into my heart...and never left. She was a darling, very small for an English Springer Spaniel, and a Walt Disney sort of pup. 
Thank you Cameron, for this portrait of our Chelsea Puddin' .
