It is Maya's birthday and spring is almost here!













Hi Ladies: Hope you are all having a great Sunday. I know I have been MIA for a few days. Due to the recent health issues, I have decided to start walking. I live minutes from Descanso Gardens, if you are ever around my neck of the woods, please let's make a date to go. It is beautiful, right now all the camellias are in bloom, as well as some of the bulbs they plant each year. It is a great place to go for a walk and talk to God. After today's walk, I worked on my own garden. I had forgotten how much I loved my yard. I am so behind with spring planting. So today, I transplanted three trees that had grown root bound over the last year. They were very large tree so, I am a little tired. I have an English Garden and it takes a lot of work. My roses are ready to bloom, the yard is coming alive with new growth. I have been sick too long and I just need to get over it. Being sick is boring!

I took a few pictures of the Garden for you to see. I also wanted to show you a few more items that are currently up in my home. As I was walking today, I realized that my whole house has been decorated only with Estate sale, yard sales and thrift shop items. Except for the appliances, mattresses and couches, everything else was found in one of the above mentioned places. I do on occasions go to antique stores, however, I have found they tend to be a little pricey. I have always had to watch my money so they are more of a place to go to drool! Don't get me wrong, I love to drool! It is one of my favorite past times. I just wish I could do more than drool, if you know what I mean?

I need to get myself in gear, it is Princess Maya's birthday on Saturday and I still do not have anything special to give her. She is going to be 7 and I need ideas! She really has everything, an only child with 3 Grandmothers and 3 Great Grandmas. The sweetest little girl you would ever want to be with. I have Noah tomorrow, so I better think quick.

Don't forget about Tea Cup Tuesday. Let me know if you want to play, all you have to do is share your tea cups. It is very easy. I am also having a give away in honor to the TCT. All you need to do for that is leave a comment, post my button and become a follower. Each one will give you chances to win. You can comment as often as you like, I love to hear from you! Just let me know what you are doing. Have a great week! Blessings, Martha

Beautiful photos, Martha. Thanks so much for sharing. Love all your "blues," too. Why not take Maya out for a breakfast (or lunch) with Grandma? Make her feel special! Or is there a tea room in your area? You could treat her to a high tea! Okay, Martha. Hope you are feeling much better soon. Sincerely,Susan

Martha,
Your garden pics are just lovely and I love the items you showed from your home! I am with you in how your home is furnished. Same thing with me, the sofa's and chairs, the mattresses and the appliances are the only things bought new. The rest of the things in my home have been inherited from family or friends or bought at yard sales, flea markets or estate sales all to create my "over the top" look!! LOL!! You know I will be part of Tea Cup Tuesday!!
