REDnesday Is Here!

Well, I've been busy; celebrating birthdays and participating in several blog parties in the past week! Today I'm joining Sue at "It's A Very Cherry World" for REDnesday once again. Red is a favourite colour of mine and I like to share it whenever I can.

Last week, I joined in a rooster party and I overlooked a couple of roosters! It was easy to miss them because they are on a cushion and a table cloth in the den. So I thought I would share them today. I love toile and I love roosters and they are both in red here. Do you see him?
Yes, they are there! Love them!I decided to show this plate today also because this rooster has red on him.Next are the red cardinals on the floor mat.Lastly, is this!
Oh, be still my heart! This is my newest find. You don't see these very often any more. Remember when these were fashionable? A scalloped teacup on its own little sandwich plate! I love it!!
Would you care for a cuppa coffee and a donut? I have plenty. After we have sat and visited a while over coffee, why not stop by Sue's at for more reds? Have a marvellous day everyone!

Happy Birthday To My Beautiful Mum

Hello everyone~ Yesterday I mentioned all the birthdays we have in our family during the month of September. Today is another special day because it is my beautiful mother's birthday!
Today she celebrates a big one; her 80th birthday!
She has been through a lot this past year, what with breaking her hip and undergoing three different surgeries since March. She is very frail but she has pulled through it all.
She is still recuperating from her last hospital stay but she is starting to make some headway.
I thank God for every day we have her here now. The picture below was taken the last time she was in my home. She had come to see my son and her new great-grandson, Zachary, who were home for a visit from Vancouver.

I wish you a wonderful day filled with joy, surrounded by your loved ones. I pray the coming year will bring you good health, peace, and much laughter... I love you!
"Happy Birthday Mum"
