This Week's Ramblings #10

Another fast week has gone by!  
Seems like August blew through like a fast wind!

I started this week with a post about a little decorating I did on the fireplace mantel which I called Mantel Madness!  Please check it out "here".

I had some fun putting together a Tablescape this week you can see "here".
I want to thank everyone for so many nice comments- it boosts my morale a lot.  I was surprised how many people have either lived in or visited Michigan and had special memories from them!

 A quick snapshot of the flowers from my tablescape.   The white hydrangeas already shriveled up so I had to toss them.  The last of the perennials for the summer!

I saw this barn on a little road trip and had to take a picture.
I love red barns and the color of this one attracted me.  It's almost burgundy.  I'd love to paint our little barn that's behind the garage a color like this and add a couple of windows.

Little Teddy is my desk buddy.
He's supervising me as I post!  LOL...
He knows how to chill!

It's raining today and it looks like we'll be seeing more of it throughout the weekend so I think we'll be indoors more than out.   Perhaps I can catch up on some things inside.

Have yourselves a


  1. Always love seeing your photos! Little Teddy has the right idea! We all need to be chillin this weekend! Have a glorious holiday, Liz!

  2. Great photos, Liz! Your flowers are looking great! It's raining here now, with a little more through tomorrow. Then, on Sunday, the sun and heat return! Hope you have a great holiday weekend!

  3. Hi Liz,

    It looks like we might see some rain on Sunday. Little Teddy is looking so comfy! What a precious kitten. Enjoy your weekend. I think I need a change of pace and might have to do some re-decorating myself.

  4. I love that red barn! I love red barns too and wish we had one. Teddy looks so darn comfortable; wish we could sleep that well.

  5. Where does the time go? Love the look of your mantel. You nailed it! Little Teddy is adorable, so cozy in his bed. The red barn is awesome, it makes for a great photo. Beautiful flowers as well. your garden looks so pretty. Rain already? Goodness Fall is around the corner. Happy Labor day to you and Dan.

  6. Have a great Labor Day! Loved the tablescape, so very creative! Teddy is a real sweetie.

  7. I loved all the photos -- I remember seeing so many pretty red barns when we traveled up North. I really wish I had a barn -- I need to move to the Country!

  8. Hi Liz- I popped in to tell you that I am easing back into blogging. I have missed you this summer and have missed your posts and gardens. Hope you had a great Labor Day- xo Diana

  9. Hope you had a nice Labor Day weekend despite the rain. We need rain desperately. We only got a little this weekend. It was nice to catch up on sleep though.

  10. Liz,
    I l o v e your weekly ramblings, dear friend!!!
    Think I've missed a few. . .life has been complicated here.
    That a d o r a b l e "Little Teddy" makes my heart smile.
    We're enjoying a gentle rain with loads of thunder at the moment!
    Happy Labor Day!!!
