Dinnerware, jewels, birds and a story

This is our newest and most colorful of our garden inhabitants that so happily had made himself at home among my roses.  This is his second winter visiting the garden. He loves the grapes I leave on the vine for him every autumn.  Love to have him here.


A mixture of berries and mozzarella cheese. My favorite dessert. Yummy! 


I love my new shelves.  Perfect for this wall... and so practical too. Love to have my everyday dinnerware right on hand.






Our master room... peaceful. And cozy...


The 'rock' of my life... my beautiful mom and handsome dad on their wedding day.


I have brought the Queen inside... too cold in the garden for her...


Remember Beatrice of Bourbon, Queen of Bohemia—'the Queen'? A very demanding Lady. She took control of things in the garden from the very moment she arrived. You can read all about it here, if you want.
 

This morning I heard her complaining... about the weather, about the snow and the birds pooping all over her honorable head, and about me too! Oh yes I heard her complaining of how I had abandoned her, and left her outside to rot in the cold... So I have brought her in... she is modeling some of my necklaces now... last summer I gave her some pretty jewels for her crown...


The strangest of things is, I had been mistaken all this time... ah yes my friends. Our 'Lady' is not really a queen. No sir... looking at her from a closer distance this morning, I figured out who she really is... She's the Hindu Goddesses, Lakshmi! Yikes! Pardon me your majesty, but you'll have to go back outside soon. Those long ears of yours are way too scary and beside, husband doesn't like you here! ;)

Thank you all for visiting my blog and for your friendship... I really appreciate each and every one of you...
