This and That and Here And There...................


I was so surprised when I looked on the date of my last posting and saw how long it had been.
The time seems to fly by so fast and I always say that starting tomorrow and after I do this or that......I will try to sit down daily and write a post.....even a short post. Well that does not seem to happen. As I said before, with cooler weather around the corner maybe I may have or take the time to do so. I have noticed with the blogs that I read if you post daily or every other day you seem to have more readers. So starting real soon....not sure when I will try to reach that goal. I have been busy at Amelia Rose Cottage trying to get a few things finished that I started before. Below are a few of the pictures of the most recent projects. I found this old chair at a garage sale for three dollars, painted it and then scuffed it up a little found an artificial plant and roses and now it is at the entrance to Amelia Rose Cottage. It took only a little time and I like the way it turned out. I found this little night stand and put it next to my favorite chair, I keep my favorite things close at hand and my books are in the drawers. It is working well for me. Then I moved a few pictures here and there and came up with some more new looks. It has been a very busy summer and I will be glad when things slow down just a little bit so I can have just a little me time. Time to sit and read a favorite book, work on the Christmas gifts that I have started or just take a short summer snooze. I will be back mush sooner then I have lately and please come and visit me again soon. Have a warm and relaxing weekend and remember to be safe while you are here and there doing this and that like me...........Sharon K

It's wonderful that you're enjoying your life too! I wouldn't worry about posting or the number of visitors. Just do what you're comfortable doing!!

Oh Hon, don't you worry about how many times you make entries here. Sure it's nice to do so often. But ... watch out, here comes my constant mantra... We blog for ourselves! And we blog without obligation and all those gooooood things. Which I know, are still hard for me to believe even, thought I have them as my constant mantra. :-)

And I know that some people make entries every day and have a zillion people comment. But some make daily entries, and don't have a zillion comments. And some people have lots of comments, some times. And less, other times. The perfect way to get people to _comment_ is still a bit of a mystery.

But ... why worry? Blog for ourselves and let the readers come or not. And let readers comment, or not. {'Cause how can anyone really know readership, without comments?????}

Enjoy our days. In what ever way we each choose. And try not to let anything become a chore. Life has ways of throwing plenty of necessary chores our way, without us making more, for ourselves. -smile-

Hugs, Mari-Nanci

I love your chair and plant! You really have a gift for finding treasures, fixing them up if needed, and finding just the right spot for them! Charming! As for blogging, I find summer is such a busy season for most and I think it's common for people not to be able to blog each day. I sure haven't been able to! :o)

I love the picture on your wall next to the star. What is the name of it? It is so precious. Your chair looks wonderful.

SHARON,
I bet you will be posting more with the cooler weather, I see a lot of the girls slow down over the summer and then pick up in the fall.
Your pictures are so nice as always, and I'm always happy to see when you have come over to visit me. Love the company.

I love your decorating...and I know what you mean about time going by so quickly. I haven't posted near as often this summer. But there are so many things to DO! and most of them fun...=)

Kerri said...

Summer is a busy time...and full of outdoor activities. There'll be more time for working on the computer in the cooler weather. We need to take time to just enjoy these summer days while we can!
It's so nice to catch up with your posts and see the fun things you've been doing. You're such a creative decorator! Love your little chair with the roses.
It looks like a lovely wedding..how wonderful to have it on the sand.
Happy anniversary! Happy birthday to you...and happy birthday to Tammy! I'm glad you had such enjoyable celebrations.

You have been so busy with so many sweet things! Happy memories!

Love the chair....and your walls... I too have been lax on blogging....and reading blogs... I love to, but hey it's still summer... and that's why I have my favorites on the side...I will pop in and visit one or two a day...I use to visit everyone everyday... but maybe in winter I will get back to that....but I love my blogging friends...we are like family....with no responsiblity, except popping in to say hi, once in a while....

In just a month we will be quilting....looking forward to it....
