My life is to make everything around me beautiful.

For Celeste, Katie, Amy the Princess, Sharon & Vickie

Miss Katie's wish is my command. She requested that I show her picture of her old home in the city:

"This is a picture of me in front of our previous home
in the city. It was a typical tract home. I thought
Connie might like to post it here, after showing the
cottage doors. The yellow blossoms I'm standing under
are from the climbing rose called Lady Bank's Rose.
It eventually trailed up and over the entire carport
edge. Far right was my lilac bush. Living in the
country we now have about 14 lilac bushes! Katie"

I found these pictures in an old book and each one brought to mind a certain person in our PRH group. All beautiful and wonderful chicks if I do say so myself. ;-) Anyway, I'll tell you why below:

Here we have what I thought looked like Celeste's Miss Beasley, who follows Celeste around from morning till night and sometimes beyond! While this doesn't look anything like Celeste's bedroom, I'm sure she would appreciate the look but most assuredly the "puppy" lounging on the flower strewn bed. Yo, Miss Beasley, do ya hear us talkin' 'bout ya??!!

Katie is brought to my mind when I see this desert oasis above. Katie and Bob work diligently in the arid desert of Nevada to make it lush and productive. You should hear what she has planted on those 2 acres. Trees, rose bushes, flowers, vegetables, grapes, goats, cats, doves. Plus they live off a lot of the stuff. It's Katie's dream spot but they make it better and better each year.

While this isn't especially victorian, it "smacks" of it and another style also - shabby chic. This is for Sharon, who loves all things antique. Plus she can wear the most wonderful hats and lets those sweet cheeks smile up at ya! She is a true beauty and is married to a sweetheart of a man. We love her even though she has skin we ALL lust for!

Vickie would also love this. She has a "sofa of many different colors" that we all love also. But recently she had a catastrophe in her family and when she went to help out she became very ill. She's back with us now but not up to her usual self. We love her immensely and her sofa, of course. A real treat for us to have Vickie.

The rest of these pictures are for Princess Amy, our "munchkin mom of 5 boys"!! Amy is a petite thing raising 5 boys and one "football sized hubby." She's the only feminine part of that family and she loves Victoria's Secret and PINK! I KNOW she would love this bathroom to soak in a bubble bath like a princess. :-)

I have no doubt that she'll catch the meaning of this picture - vintage and bunnies!

Bunnyrose Amy would adore this kitchen also. She's a frou frou-y kinda chick!

Same with this living room in a cottage. She'd adore it!

Personally I love this room with all its sunlight, high windows and PINK. But Amy would love it also. I thought of her when I saw this one also.


  1. What a lovely group of ladies these sound like. Love all the pics, but the one showing the ocean through the windows? You need to assign that one to me.

    Love, Esther

  2. Love the scenes this morning Connie! By the way, it's TWO acres! Love your pink door too. Katie

  3. You hit the nail on the head for each of us. I immediately responded to the photo you selected for me even before I scrolled down far enough to see my name. You know us all so well.

  4. Oh Connie, you know me SO WELL!!!! I am just in love and in awe of every picture! That is THE prettiest bathroom I have EVER seen!! I am going to show that to Chad and see if we can get some walls knocked down this summer,lol! Oh how I would love to create that space for me! I need something like that! I LOVE the one with the bunny because of course I love bunnies but it also reminds me of my little boys :) That kitchen is so pretty and I just love the green wicker chairs! I will be revisiting this post when I feel depressed! Thank you so much Connie. I love you :)


  5. Love, love the photos! These are all just yummy. Of course, you know I love the ones "assigned" to Sharon and Vickie the most! Thanks so much for sharing.

  6. Connie, that sure does look like Ms Beazy in all her glory on that bed. What a wonderful pic. The bathroom and wonderful tub is fantastic. Any cottage room is perfect to me!! Keep the great pictures coming.
