End of Summer Garden Party

Good Day :)   I've found a new fun blog party to join, the Tuesday Garden Party.It has 5 lovely host's, I think most of You will enjoy visiting them.So please relax and start hopping.That is, hopefully after You peruse My tiny Coffeeberry Cottage and join Me for a cup of Your favorite beverage and a goody.For those of You who have never visited before,My garden is tiny but I'm married to a farmer at heart so it changes whenever He gets involved.He does leave My fairy gardens alone most of the time.





In this photo the tiny hand belongs to the newest  fairy Herself-Maddie Kaye. She's learning God's wonderful colors in nature
from the oldest Grammie hobbit in the shire.To the right is the Ol' farmer  Himself  having a moment of contemplative silence with Maddie, looking out toward the Fairway, which in My world is the green Shire.Oh Maddie,Do You see the Shire ?


If You look through My eyes and Maddie's.... way across the fairway, You'll see the Shire .
Our warm Summer has been hard on Our garden.I plan real soon to do a Fall make over. Thank You for joining Our Garden Party.Enjoy the end of Summer, Hugs and blessings Your way Denise

Summer Afternoon Tea Picnic

The cool shade under huge trees,a slight warm breeze, relief from the hot sun.Drifting off  listening to laughter of Children in the distance, God's gift of a "lazy" Summer afternoon.  



All is needed is,a dear close someone to share it with....... 
or several lady friends.  How about :) Husbands,Grandsons and  dogs........but We better make it ice tea,ice coffee and lemonade. Have a few blessed "lazy" days of Summer. Love Denise   Joining Sandi's Tea Time Tues.Found on My sidebar, if You'd like to join Us.

Sum Sum Summertime !

Last of My crafts until it cools off. I did 6 cones, one each week, as some of You may know.This is the 6th.I'm not in the mood  for crafts now,I think I got craft out doing My 6 cones  : /


Thinking about turning each one more Christmasie for the holidays,soon as I get back into the mood. For now, I'm just trying to enjoy staying cool in air conditioning and the pool.....

(Cousins)

My two baby Grandchildren,the youngest ones out of the 10.

 My youngest daughter just the other day promised Me one more-next Year that is :)
Southern CA. has been in a heat wave as usual for July,but I've never been 61 in a heat wave....

I know I don't blog to show pics of My family,but how can I resist the family babies. We've been doing a lot of family swimming together and I'm just so in love with them. I'll get back soon with something other than Bathing Beauties  ; )  Love Denise

Dreaming of Ireland's countryside


I love to read novels that  take place in Ireland's small towns ,villages and countryside.
 The characters have wonderful times talking, singing,dancing, working and sometimes even falling in love in these pubs.Some have been going to the same pub for generations and all have become like family.
The quaint simple warm homes charm Me.




The Castles enchant.
Oh the farmlands......

The farms and open land all call My name.
I don't just want to read the books though,I want  to go there Myself.Who wants to go with Me ? We can all go. 


We'll listen to the ancient stories told by the locals and wonder all night if they're true.


The chill and foggy moisture will give the air a sweet smell as We take early morning walks with Our dogs.
The Tin /Penney Whistle, along with the Bodhran drums.
Joanie Madden (My favorite musician of all time)

I have a little surprise for Our trip......

 Were going to a dinner show :)


In My heart I'll be dancing right along with them.Thank you for going along on a true dream of Mine. I know it was also a dream of My Grammie's too, Kathryn Winn Ketzel.To join the other parties that are traveling to their dream destinations in Europe Please go to Anita's Castles Crowns and Cottages (Simply Irresistible Party) found at the top of My sidebar. Love Denise 
One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
