"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”

 ~Marcel Proust 

For my friends...who make me very happy indeed!




  1. Hello there Andie! You have been busy! I was just looking at all your boxwood and that free pavillion! You get the best deals, at great prices or FREE!

    I have sent you two emails regarding the drawings. Please let me know about the invoices I sent you because I will be getting busy in mid June and if I'm going to draw, I need to know now so I can start. Happy day! Anita

  2. Your garden looks Divine. Mine has been washed down by the recent flood. I think most will pop out of it,, but a lot of clean up. I only wish it was over and done for so I could start the salvation of the cleanup. Richard and Sissy

  3. So beautifully put Andie. We have lots of spring blossom branches in the house at the moment, I've got lilac and apple blossom branches coming out of my ears:)

  5. Awww Andie I have missed you my friend! Your flowers are gorgeous and I thank you for sharing them!


  6. Well, sweetie pie, you make me happy! Your flowers are so pretty and your home is gorgeous! :) Have a great week.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  7. How pretty! Why oh why don't I have any flowering bushes?!


  8. Well, Andie, my dear, I love flowering trees and shrubbery as much as the next guy, but I am really impressed with your CHESTERFIELD (sofa). You have made your home a veritable PALACE. It manages t be classic, but UNIQUE. Quite an accomplishment!

    Do your friends understand and appreciate what you've done, or does it put "distance" between you?

    Talent and ambition such as yours sometimes either puzzles people, or makes them jealous.

    I love my house almost as much as you must love yours, but I think of it as an "Intelligence Test' -- anybody who says he (or she) does not like it is a DOPE. ;-)

    I don't envy anyone, because I don't believe in it, but if I ever WERE to envy anyone, it might be YOU. You are very very gifted -- just a boundless fount of creativity.

    Bless you!

  9. Andie, Does it get any richer in beauty over here.
    Your talent in finds and your blending of beauty creates a place ones mind can rest on. The deep of floral you added has the right to stand out rather then blend in. You have created a of place of poetry.


  10. Yeah, yeah, yeah....
    Pretty flowers....
    What's going on with your paint job on the secretary???
    When I told you to step back from it.....I didn't mean THIS LONG!!!!
    If you need some advice.....I'm always here for you.....sort of....

  11. Amei as flores, elas trazem alegria para uma casa. Essas flores alegraram meu dia.
    Bjos e tenha uma ótima semana.

  13. Your Home is always so Beautifully Curated!
