Favorite Pins Friday

It’s still technically Friday so this counts, right?

I have always had a deep and long abiding love of English Roses. Sometimes called cabbage roses these beauties just take my breath away. Someday, I will spend more money than I should on a whole yard full of these beauties.

I’ve never met a rose that didn’t make me stop and stare, I hope you enjoy these as much as I do. If you Pin, please be respectful and pin them from their original sources. I wish I could claim these as my own, but sadly, they are not.


























I’m still learning my way around this whole blog thing so please let me know if the pictures that are not sourced do not link back to their original pages. I think I’ve done this so you can just click on the picture and be taken there. I think. I’ve pinned these so if you find that isn’t the case, let me know and I’ll be happy to manually source them.

Take Your Medicine

“The food that you eat can either be the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.”

In the last year my husband and I have made a conscious effort to live more purposefully and naturally. We have a long, long way to go but I honestly believe that the little changes we’ve made can lead to big results. Right now we bake our own bread, make our own mayonnaise, we’ve ditched fabric softener and fabric sheets in favor of the far superior white vinegar. We have begun growing our own vegetables and hope to be able to put some up for the future. Our standards for what we bring into our home have gone way up and our tolerance for garbage and chemicals have gone way down.

Living purposefully takes a little longer but it is so worth it. My family and I have a long way to go but each day we have come a long way from where we started.

What changes have you made? Do you plan to make any new changes in the future?

Favorite Pins Friday

I thought I'd try something a little different (for this blog, anyway) and use Friday to highlight some of my favorite gardening pictures for the week. If you pin these, please be respectful and pin them from their original locations.

There’s always been something about wooden doors painted blue in the garden. I don’t know what it is, but I hope that someday I’ll add a couple of them somewhere in my garden. Aren’t these just gorgeous?
