Simple Pleasures

What makes me happy? Well, lots of things.

But few come as easily (or inexpensively) as a bouquet of Surprise Rose Garden blooms and a good recipe from one of my binders.


I'm sure that a fancy-pants florist would never put all of these clashy roses together, but it just goes to show that fancy-pants florists don't know everything, after all.

The air is turning here, Autumn is on the way. Only now do I feel compelled to dash off to buy mums and pumpkins. Alas, we are leaving for vacation on Wed., so it will have to wait a week or so longer.

In the meantime, we have big plans to pick up Calvin's Big Boy mattress tonight and put the finishing touches on his room. I also have the newest Better Homes and Gardens magazine waiting for me, and a Netflix movie.

Here's to a perfect, cozy, love-bug, Autumn weekend!

  1. A BHG magazine and a movie. That does sound nice.

    Tell me about your recipe binders. Have you posted about this in the past? I'm curious!

  4. Oh that sounds like a wonderful weekend. I have Anne of Green Gables from Netflix (seen it like six times) a Pumpkin Maple Pecan cake in the works, and I'm REALLY thinking of going up to Michigan junking on Sunday. I really SHOULD work around here, but I really need to junk.

    Thought of you at yard sales yesterday. I found this DELICIOUS light blue speckled vintage roasting pan. Sigh.

  5. I think the roses are lovely! Love all the colours together. Have a great weekend. I'm off to google Netflix -I'm Canadian and not sure what that is, not because I'm Canadian but because I don't know if we have it here;)
