Velveteen pumpkins-Oh Yes!

Joanne's Fabric and Craft store had velveteen pumpkins for their half off early Fall sale. I bought 3, one of each color. I think they were like... $7.49 each .I've  had My eye on them for a couple of Years.



The jewels and ribbon are included  :)
 I've been to all My fave stores for Fall perusing except Pier One,Which I'm heading on over today after I'm done with this post.I do a lot of "window shopping" until something hits Me,or until My feet give out.Boy,when I was younger I could stay out shopping until it was time to pick the kids up from school.Those were fun days and I feel blessed to have been a stay at home Mom with four daughters.Yes, I've been an R.N. since right out of college,but truth be told I only worked once in a blue moon,like each time a Realtor told Me to until Our houses went through escrow.I sure wish My four Daughters could do that,I thought while I was raising them that they would.Even the littlest one who is married to a G.I. Doctor still works.That's why I'm always babysitting.Well, times have changed but it does make Me sad.Gee -I didn't mean to get off subject.....I was talking about Fall decor. shopping..... A few new goodies I added this Year.

Letting go lasts a life time.

A continual process-letting go of one thing then in a few years letting go of another-It truly never ends.
When Were Young,

just starting out

We think We know how

and that will be the end of it.

We learn it just becomes something else,

one more turn for Us to

let go....give in....

be free
of what holds on at the next turn in life.

Keep letting go
until the end and We will be who We were meant to be.....


FREE !!  Love Denise....PS This was for Me...one more thing I want to let go of.Jealousy of a few daughter's time and relationship with their In-laws. Oh I get so tired of Myself sometimes. Change Denise Change !

Wondrous World

What a wondrous world.Any mountain reminds Me of the Creator.....but this mountain,shout's out His name-Jehovah.      Chichilianne, Rhone Alpes, France

This sweet little scene reminds Me of His goodness and His care and concern for Our well being.


Enjoy ,Love Denise

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

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.
