To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

SHOPPING FOR FALL
Oh BE STILL MY HEART!
Here THEY come....
those luscious fall catalogs...
tempting us with all those rich colors of home goods!
With the weather being so dreadfully HOT,
it's a great time to float in the pool and
make a wish list for the coming fall months!
Darling Abbie mentioned she wanted a Papasan chair...
I LOVE THIS ONE!
Honey, I think I want one too,
but I think it would be impossible for me to actually get OUT of one!
Don't you love these dapper natural woodland creatures?
Just precious I tell you!
What a darling tablesetting these would make!
I fell in love with this beverage set the minute I saw it!
I have always said these exact colors would be perfect
for an Autumn wedding!
Oh my.....yes, yes, yes!
Now I think I may want to make over my Princess guest bedroom!
I can just imagine putting our feet onto that
luxurious lavender rug......
Mother had a living room chair so similiar to this!
I love petitie chairs...they are so much more feminine!
Love the floral throw...I think I have a crush on deep purple now!
The liquor table.....I need to add a stag bottle stopper!
Yes....throws in every color...
just wrap me up!
I think I need this little guy.....
thank you PIER ONE...
for making fall so beautiful!
