Home on Red Rock Hill.....



The heart made to hold hanging baskets was made by my oldest son about 10 years ago.I have always loved it. It is needing a new paint job now.

 Haven't seen the hummingbirds visit yet,but I know they are out and about because I have seen them else where.

Anyone remember the little red chick in the pot above? I have shared it a few other times on this blog.

 I have had this angel about 16 years.....she is concrete and has never been painted until recently...I think she is pretty painted white and she seems content with it...smile. I have really enjoyed having her around over the years. My daughter Regina has her twin...smile.
You see all those red rocks on the ground? That is why I call my home site "Red Rock Hill"
Everywhere you dig,there are red rocks unearthed. Some are really big!



Moved my bottles to here on the porch. The horse went for the bird feeders and  in doing so broke some of my bottles,my old blue ones :(

Son bought this old chippy bench from the rummage sale we just had at church. I love it.


Helpers...aren't they sweet?

 Big and little ones!

 We are flying the flag for my #2 son who is away at boot camp to become a Marine. He graduates next month. I have to figure out how I am getting out to San Diego to be there with him and see him graduate.
It will happen,and I will get there..just not sure how yet...smile.


Home sweet humble home.......


In the last letter I received from my son he said to me,Mom,I never knew I would miss home so much.
Broke my heart,but made me proud and very happy all at the same time....I guess the saying really is true..."Be it ever so humble..there is no place like home".


Blessings on your home........Shelley

I love your new look of your home! I want to visit you so bad. We must make that happen before we are in rocking chairs!

YES, please change my blog Shelley, go for it. Something bright and fun. I tried to change it, but I don't see it. The sides were a castle like Disneyland...

Ugh...more and more this computer is getting harder to understand.
