Time for BITS & BOBS around the Summer House

Ever so often,
I go thru my Photo File
and have photos but no story...
so...
they go into my occasional posts
commonly known as
BITS & BOBS...😍


 I love sleep shirts with a passion....so comfortable.
Stacy gave me the black one  and it is so comfy,
I ordered a few more.


I live so far behind "times" that I had never heard of this brand before.
If it weren't for my girl and all the grandgirls,
I might well still be wearing powder blue polyester....

This brand is pricey.....
but when they have a sale, it is THE BEST.



A few of my friends may remember that I MADE, 
ok......PUT together flower pots to create a cute little fun birdbath.

It looked so cute on our patio in the summertime....


I was worried all the cold weather might make the paint start chipping off,


so I moved it inside to our sunny dining room
and put a pot of ivy on her....
I just KNOW this will save me a paint job come summertime...
and besides,
I still love looking at it. 💖

No matter which way I look at it, tho...








THIS is where it looks best...




OOO, hurry up spring.....

hurry up,
summertime
Sometimes, I have more fun with my photos....


Who stages apples...??
me....


Taking the spotlight from the beautiful apples,
I bought this adorable ROSEMARY burlap and glass from
LaurieAnna's in CANNON, TX.
Wow...what a fun place to shop...
Next on my "I wanna go" list is
MAGNOLIA in  Waco, Tx. 😍 😍








Inside the burlap bag is a glass tube..


I use it a lot to get roots started for another new plant.

I'm starting this one for a friend and it's just about ready to plant into a pot for her.




At this time, I have it hanging from the knob on my
French Country Rooster chest...
back to the apple


some of you may know where I am going with this beautiful Fuji apple...


I love caramelized apples as much as I love baked apples...

 Once, when I needed CINNAMON,
I grabbed the
VERY HOT
CAYENNE PEPPER ....

the shakers look the very same...

thankfully, I noticed the strong smell with the first shake.....

needless to say, I separated those babies....

Caramelized apples are sooo good for breakfast with a good muffin.....or two.
(I love my laptop....It can have breakfast with me when I want)

Semi-Homemade Muffin Luv

My good blogging friend,
Sheila at My Kentucky Living Blog
posted about making
CRANBERRY ORANGE MUFFINS
and
well.....I just had to make some, too.

THEN...while preparing my post,
I began to have Daja-Vu..


so I went back and looked at a few muffin posts..
and sure 'nuf, I had made these before and not only that,
but I had posted about them...
♥ ♥ ♥
So if it seems you've "seen this before"
it really is all new photos...
just same ole muffins... 



I just love cuteness and try for in most every thing I do...


 Our daughter in law, KATHY,
always finds the cutest napkins
and I always steal a few to take photos of....






and the following is my favorite...




...and in other news


this is my cutie-pie rug from the Pioneer Woman collection at WalMart..
so cheerful and full of color
and perfect for a cloudy, rainy day in West Texas..
