a great benefit to
Cyrus Centre.

WE are so thankful for all our VENDORS (a list of them will be posted soon!) for their huge efforts

and a fun lounge, for resting
between shopping and having a drink at the Hot Cider Bar!

smoking stand candle holders

Vintage Smoking Stands
Now a Candle holder ! 

I cant imagine butting out a cigarette in 
such a pretty crystal stand!
I assume they stood next to the chair,
right with in reach!
But here it is with a huge candle right on the spot
where a different fame would be extinguished!

Relatively inexpensive.

Found at garage sales or thrift stores.
A friend has hers at the front door and drops her keys in it!

A good cleaning and some paint!

Have you any memory of these?
Would you ever recreate one?

Have a great weekend!

Our Back Yard & Mothers day Azalea

Yeah for the weekend!
We had a long one at that.
 The first monday of August
Is B.C. Day!

But going back a few months.....
For Mothers Day Bob bought me an 
Azalea Standard...Topiary?
It was so beautiful and lasted over a month.
I am keeping it alive (so far) 
and hoping it will re-bloom next spring!

At the end of June our roses and Ladys Mantle are stunning.
It is my favorite time in the garden as I can have glorious bouquets.
If you saw a few posts back you will know what I mean!

The picture below was taken from the steps at our back door 
as the cats are enjoying the furniture!
I had to rip off the  fabric on the couch and chair 
I had done a few years ago as it went moldy! 
But the green velvet is just fine!
I need to come up with plan C but for now we wait!

This is the furniture looking lovely for the Canadian Living Photo Shoot

Looks like I did a bit of magazine moving...
I really do sit out here so the magazines are there for a quick look during my morning lattes!

This is the Azalea soon after it came to me...it had sooo many blooms.
And in my favorite flower colour...PINK!

...and this is it in all its aging beauty!

What is your favorite time of the year in your garden?
What did YOU do this weekend?

Roses from the Garden

Sorry the colours differ here but used my phone!
I am blessed to have a tiny tiny sun garden
4' by 20'
But I have the best roses!
And this is a wee bouquet
with Ladies Mantle
Queen Elizabeth Roses 
and a few others that I 
dont remember!
But lovely to look at and so fragrant!

What's important to me is disease resistance
(we don't use anything but sometimes I wash them with kitchen soap)
colour and fragrance.

I just LOVE these flowers!

What's your favorite flower in your garden right now?
Do you pick them to bring inside!
