Here I am with my best friend in the whole world, Renee'. It took me thirty-two years to find her! I used to hear the expression soul-mate and I really couldn't get it, then I met Renee`. I believe men and women are just too different to be soul-mates. So, ladies, if you have one out there, it will be a girlfriend.

About Me

My photo
I am fifty years old and a recent empty-nester of three grown children: nearly 19, 26 & 30. None married, no grand-babies:( I have been married one time for 34 years so far. I am the sixth of eight sisters. I've done a bit of traveling. My restless daughter took me to New York, Paris and London. I love to scrapbook, do needle art, beading,quilt, sew, decorative painting, home decorating and anything else that inspires me after looking at a magazine, HGTV, or the web! I enjoy having internet friends and think of them as modern day pen-pals.

The weeds faded in the beauty.

     Up near the Idaho border is a nice small town named Spokane.  It's Eastern Washington's answer to Seattle, without suburbs and everything their 3 million people bring with them.
     Nevertheless, business took me there today and just across the street from my meeting was this charming home.  I'm crazy for a picket fence and when combined with flowers my heart skips a beat.
     I walked closer as I fumbled around in my purse searching for my camera in an effort to take a few snapshots.  I will keep these images with others to daydream over on quiet afternoons.  
     The closer I got to the garden the more apparent it was how neglected it had become.  Still, as I stood there with the setting sun streaming through, the beauty of the garden caused the weeds to somehow disappear.

  3. Really beautiful but also a testament to lives too busy and money too short. It is great that you stopped to enjoy it. One of the greatest pleasures in life to walk through a neighborhood and really feel the energy within.
