Yesterday was such a pretty fall day.....low clouds and rain and fog. The fog horns out on the lake were making their presence known. It was balmy, and nice. The Morning Glories looked so pretty winding their way around the fence in the misty air...

I know that I won't have them too much longer, as the nights are getting cooler and I will miss their purple beauty and will be looking forward to their return in the Spring.

I listed this pretty pillow on eBay a bit ago. This is a new, rarely seen image from an old ad......Isn't the little girl exquisite? She makes me think of my oldest daughter, Yvette. (With so many vintage images, and so many granddaughters, 11, and 2 daughters, it seems I am always finding one that reminds me of one of them!)

The dainty little blue flowers sitting on the pink satin bow are made from tiny shells painted blue....the sweet green leaves are also from shells...this is a vintage earring and the shell art dates back to the 20's, 30's, and 40's. It is not easy to find pieces of this art where the shells are not chipped....these are in perfect condition.


Well, the day is almost gone, again, and time to think of dinner....I hope you all had a nice and relaxing weekend.....

Happy Sunday!! I love your morning glories. I used to have some in my garden a long time ago. They were lighter blue than yours. They are always so pretty.

Hi, Jil!
Thanks for stopping by my blog (Sammy Girl) for the Pink Saturday visit.
Speaking of pink ... I LOVE your background roses! Can I ask where you got the background? It's beautiful!
Hugs and have a great week!

This is the second morning glory pic I have seen today. So so pretty! It is rainy here and very dark during the daytime. I'm listing again so I won't notice.

Hi, Jil,
Your morning glories are putting on quite a show. I know they must love the cooler weather. Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week. Vicki

Jil, Your pillow is just lovely and I am not suprised that it is now sold. We are well and Reubs is chugging along, Maureen
