Talking about the old rocker I put it all together today and took a pic of it on our porch. She looks quite royal and spiffed up again. Wouldn't it be nice to know the history of this old chair and wonder how many people sat and rocked in it. I also bought a new planter for the front. I bought a large fern for it as I have too much trouble with the chipmunks digging in any flower pot I put together. All my pots on the deck have stones placed strategically to stop them digging. I figured the fern was so full they would have a hard time getting into that. Also took a pic of the whole porch and the front door was open behind the storm. It was funny to see my reflection in the door and the interior items at the same time. I should mention that the little beaver near the door is a boot scraper - not a real live animal. Also poor froggy had a little plant in his pot but the chipmunks knocked it over and broke the pot. So now he has another one but I haven;t put anything in it yet. He may just stay with an empty pot.

Chipmunks! Awww, the dear little pets...I remember seeing them when we visited the Grand Canyon, and I took dozens of photos of them. So cute! But I can understand you getting cross with them for digging up your potplants, lol!

Hi Freda! I had such fun getting caught up over here this morning. I wish you the best of luck with your surgery though I think you had it yesterday?? (even though it was Sunday?) It sounds like you have a busy few weeks coming up for you SPECIAL anniversary -- Congratulations...50 years is a wonderful milestone and I'm glad you're going to do it up right!

Your box is just lovely -- I love that it was completely encrusted with flowers of many different sizes and using many different materials. I really like the little basket of flowers on the right and the eiffel tower is just the thing to set the whole thing off. I'll remember your hint about the glue too!~ xo Susan
