Hi girls, I just wanted to pop in and say hello!! These are my pretty pink roses from the rose bush that I haven't killed yet, LOL, no I'm not the best gardener, but I think I've mentioned that before, right now these roses are the prettiest thing around here with Summer in full swing it's hard to get motivated seems like all I see is half empty glasses of koolaid and partially eaten plates of food! I told my boys that the maid quit last month but no body seems to care, I really am enjoying the Summer vacation but time seems to be passing way to fast and I really am enjoying every minute of it even the mess, I hope everyone else is having a great Summer and I will be back soon(;

Your roses are beautiful. I bet you're not giving yourself enough credit in the gardening department, if you can grow roses. Summer does always go by quicker than any other season.

Thank you for your sweet comments on my hutch!

Hi Kelly,

I don't think my comment posted just now, so I'll try again.

I really like your roses! Very pretty and I also like the shelf you did a few posts back. Come over to my blog and look at some "girlie blocks" I made; they look like something you would like to see.

Have a good weekend!

Your roses look so lovely! I know what you mean about the kids being home. I've washed more pool towels than I EVER would care to. And don't get me started on the dishes. Yes, summer is in full swing!

Girl you could make those half empty glasses of kool-aid look pretty and we all would be singing you praises. Glad you are enjoying your summer. I can't believe we are half way through July.

Tanya said...

Your roses look very good. I transplanted my white Iceburg roses in the spring and they are struggling! However, my tomatoes are massive like man eating plants. I guess it can't be a perfect world. ha ha

Very pretty. Nice little display you have there. We have these japanese beetles in our yard right

Love your dainty roses! Summer is flying by, isn't it?

Elyse said...

hi kelly!

my 1 rose "bush" was doing well during "the rainy season" but now, not so much. i'm trying to keep up with the watering though.

i am also trying to embrace the messiness of summer. i just have to keep the camera lens aimed high so that no one can see my floors! LOL

happy summer, sweetie

Shari @ My Cottage of Bliss said...

Summer always seems to fly by for me too. It really is my favorite season even 'tho it's hotter than blue blazes here in FL. Thank heavens for air conditioning, yes?

For someone who claims not to be much of a gardener, those roses are gorgeous! :)

Jacque said...

Hi Kelly..glad you took a few minutes from your "Vacation" to blog. I do remember when school was out for the summer--wishing I could redeem those times SO YOU ENJOY! (My baby is now 29 y/o and my grandchildren live in another state)I have so much going on with trying to remodel the farmhouse that my flowers are sorta neglected. I do have two red rose bushes that WANT to be pretty--maybe next year I will devote a little more time to them. I do love roses--my faves are yellow, though. Happy Summer...

Becky said...

I'm telling you anytime you want to meet at the Cat's Meow I would be happy to meet you there.
It's not that bad of a trip and if you stop in Arcadia there is another beautiful shop there among so many Antique stores.
I will have to do a post on that one because I took so many pictures.
Have a great weekend.
Hugs
Becky

Your pink roses are beautiful and I hope you have a wonderful summer!

Lee Laurie said...

I love your roses, Kelly. Mine didn't do well this year at all. We kept having heat advisories and we didn't have rain for 4 or 5 weeks. It was terrible. Of course I love your dishes too.

Hugs,

Pink rose china is my favorite.

I was just at Rachel Ashwell's blog and she said that people are still selling her stuff, but it's fake...Do you know if the Shabby Chic line at Target is still hers?

miss gracies house said...

Ehjoy those kool-aid glasses while you can...the roses are beautiful.
Happy summer days!

I am inspired by your beautiful cottage, dying for a sweet camper and some friends to travel with, and enjoying your excellent writing. I'd be tickled to have you come over and visit -- sign up for my giveaway while you're there, and bring your friends with ya! Blessings!

One Shabby Old House said...

Hi Kelly,
Well I guess you just need to jump in that car of yours and get yourself up here! That sink came with even the knobs for a whatever vanity I drop it in. How cool is that? But if it inspired you to a road trip all the better.

Mary Ellen (megardengal) said...

Kelly- Sounds like you are enjoying your summer- My it certainly has flown by for me!

I finally was able to do a post about the lovely NEST letters I won from you. I just love them- they make me smile everytime I see them! I wanted to display them just right before doing the post but that might be forever as I need to catch up on the month of sitting on my can- I used your lovely picture for the blog- showed them where I have them right now but not their permenent spot- think I need you to come and arrange my china closet for me and paint it that lovely color of yours!!!

THANK YOU AGAIN for my oh so fun NEST!

blessings
