A 19th Century Rocking Horse

He arrived after a long, grueling day at auction.  I wasn't sure I had done the right thing, bidding so high on a very old, very well loved and used horse.  He wasn't even a real horse.  Oh sure, you could ride him, if your were  child, which neither my husband nor I were.

  But~~~there was something captivating about this old guy.  There was an instant friendship between us and I knew I had to take him home with me.

  Now we are downsizing and he is in search of a new home, one that will offer him the same loving, respect that he has always received from our family.  In repayment, he has always brightened our rooms with his presense!! 

 Wouldn't you like to have a new friend~~~a horse, of course!!


The Summer Of Our Discontent

This has been one HOT summer!  After spending a long, cold, dreary winter indoors, most of us were ready to enjoy the outdoors.  Hasn't happened!!  I can barely stand to be outside more than a few minutes at a time in these high 90's temps!  Here are some flowers that have managed to brave the elements.
