About Me

My photo
My passion is decorating with vintage and antique finds on a budget. There was a time when I wouldn't have dreamed of going into a goodwill. That day has passed. :) My second love is scrapbooking all those special family moments for posterity, and I recently set up my very own scrapbooking room. I have three beautiful children, two sons and a daughter as well as a sweet (albeit full blooded Yankee) daughter-in-law and two grandgirls. I also enjoy gardening, meeting new friends and relaxing on my patio in the evenings with a glass of fine wine. During the summer of 2001, I spent two glorious weeks at Kennedy Space Center. I've been somewhat of a space geek ever since....

Signs of Spring

Last Mother's Day my sweet daughter-in-law and son gave me a beautiful Phalaenopsis plant in full bloom. Not knowing one thing about this type of plant, I put it in my kitchen windowsill and hoped the sun exposure would be right. Not only did it work, the plant thrived and the blooms lasted for what seemed like forever. I nursed that plant all winter and low and behold, it's returning to its full glory. Here is the first bloom just beginning to open a few days ago....Now if you doubleclicked on that picture, pleeeeaase don't tell me that I need to wash my windows cause I know that already. LOL And this is what I came home to on Wednesday.....
And on Thursday, the second bloom opened.... It's quite the contrast to the dead and brown landscape outside, isn't it?

And this morning I awoke to signs of bloom #3 just beginning to open. It's beginning to look a lot like spring, isn't it? There is a robin warbling on my back patio as I type. The sun is out and I'm gonna finish mulching my flower beds this afternoon. C'mon on spring, I'm ready for ya!


  1. I want one of these. I have killed one once already, but I want to try again, you give me hope and so does this little fella. Spring around the corner, new starts!

  2. Oh you lucky girl! I've never had one rebloom.

    Let's not worry about windows. We all need to do a good spring scrubbing.

  3. Terri, check out your award on my blog.

  4. Hi Terri, I found your blog through your comment on Cindy's Romantic Home blog. I love your photo's and my gosh, you do NOT look like a grandma!!! I'm new to blogging and I think a great way to meet other bloggers is the link up parties, so far I only participate in 4 but I know there's 100's out there! It really gets your blog noticed. Anyway, now you have 35 loyal followers:)

  5. you give me hope and so does this little fella. Spring around the corner, new starts!
