The Yucca's Bloom and A Visitor

With all the rains we've had the Yucca's are prettier than ever. I love seeing the sword-shaped leaves produce a stalk of beautiful blooms each year. To me it's always the sign summer and heat is right around the corner.

Summer Front Porch

I can't thank all of you enough for your sweet comments on my last post Tour Of My Shop. I'm very fortunate to be able to do something I love on a daily basis. The daily routine of displaying and ordering in new products never gets old to me. I'm so glad you enjoyed my little corner of the world. You can follow me on Face Book, Twitter and Instagram for daily updates of things around my home and the shop.

I recently shared A Little Update To the Front Porch if you missed that small update you can find it HERE.  I realized after posting I hadn't shared the full porch in it's entirety in a very long time if ever. What better time than now. 

This is the view of the front of my home. One of the requirements when we built our home was I had to have a front porch. The porch is the full length of the house 68' and 10' deep. That's a 680 square feet of space to decorate and share with friends and family.
I'm standing in the front yard a fair distance from the front porch to get a full view of the front porch. Last summer was spent with the mule and a log chain pulling out bushes that were over grown or just looking bad. It was a lot of hard work but very rewarding. It truly cleaned up the look. I'll have to go back through the archives to find pictures of how it was to how it is now.

Let's Go Shopping . . . A Virtual Tour of My Gift Shop

And yet another day of rain has hit our area. It's been raining since late Tuesday night, we've had lots of flooding, roads closed and a few water rescues. Last I heard we've had 11'' plus. The farmers met yesterday and were advised to get their equipment out of the bottoms. With all the rains Montana and other places up north have had it's expected to hit our area on or around the middle of the month. They say we're being set up for the same conditions we experienced in 1993. The flood of 1993 was devastating to our area. I pray their reports are wrong, I ask that you keep our area and others in your thoughts and prayers.

  I've been asked by a few lately for a tour of the shop. I'm always excited to share what I do for a living. I love helping others add a cozy touch to their homes.
 Let me give you
