A Glimse Into My World

Here are some of the happy things in my world.

I adore vintage clothes!!!

I love to open my closet door each morning and see rows of pastel colors, lace, silk and tulle.

Do I wear them?
but Addie does !!!

Addie in the garden.

I don't wear these either
I so love looking at them !!!

Some of these brooches were my Grandmother's and her Mother's.
Some I found here and there.

A new to me blue bowl in the roses.

A Blue Jay feeds here everyday.

I love this little cement garden gnome brought at an estate sale many years ago.

A disco ball swinging from a pine tree limb over my garden.

It looks so lovely in moonlight.

A beautiful  song with beautiful musicians

Well sweet friend it is almost twilight my favorite time .

 Will you stay and watch it with me?



  1. Very pretty vintage items you have there. The brooches are beautiful. Where do you find all of the pretty dresses?

  2. Hi Dottie!

    I was actually thinking about Addie the other day!! And how beautiful she is..
    I love those vintage delicate and pretty!
    No wonder all of these are some of your favourites!
    And I too sooo enjoy James his music and his sweet gentle spirit.

    I would love to watch the twilight with you..

    In friendship,
    Deborah \0/

  3. I'll stay for twilight~ if I can stay awake long enough.
    I believe I may have a touch of jet lag~~~~

    I'll just let james taylor sing me to sleep.

  4. What a lovely post, Dottie. So many pretty things.
    The cameos are beautiful, and you never wear them. I have about 5 cameo pieces that came from my father's family. I do wear one of the rings sometimes, but I want to have the other pieces checked to be sure they are still mounted securely.
    Are you not tempted to wear any of the clothes? One of those dresses, a nice glass of wine and that sunset. oh my! I hope Addie knows how lucky she is, but I think you are spoiling her.
    I really like the idea of the disco ball gracing your yard. I have a verdigris finished chandelier that I found in a garage sale. My idea was to put candles where the bulbs are and hang it in my yard, but I have not found the right tree limb to use. They are either way too high or the tree is just to small.
    Maybe you will show us a picture of your yard from a distance so we can see how it all comes together.
    I am leaving in the morning for a long weekend. I hope you have a nice weekend.

  5. Dottie, every single one of your "happy things" made me smile!! I think the true secret of happiness is to enjoy the simple things that make us smile everyday. Thank you for the smiles you gave me today.

  6. oh cameo's and vintage clothing. We love the same things. Clarice

  7. Addie is the most pretty scarecrow I have ever seen! Thank you for the tour around your garden, it looks like a peaceful and beautiful place to relax in. James Taylor...could listen to his songs all day! Thanks for sharing and hope you are having a wonderful day :)

  8. Like you I love to find odds and ends for my yard and tuck them in...I have been looking for a gnome for a while (he has to be a special one) and I love the blue bird bath...take care...

  9. Mercy! Addie is better dressed than me! Your vintage finery is beautiful.

  10. love this post and the music to go with it....very peaceful!!!

  11. Hi Dottie,
    Your things are so pretty. I love the vintage clothes. Addie is awesome! I can't believe you had the same vintage baby card-that's the second person who said they had one of them. Kind of amazing isn't it? Have a great week.

  12. Hi Dottie... Addie has a wonderful wardrobe, full of lovelies:-) and the cameos are so beautiful! I am guilty of the same thing, buying lovely things just to play with and admire:-)

  13. Such sweet images...some made me smile. Susan

  14. I think I'm in love!!....such a great garden. AND------the cameos, I love cameos!! I have several pieces. Oh, and let me not forget the new bird bath...that is so darned colorful. Great share.

    For your convenience, Here Is My Show and Tell Bargain Link. Hope to see you visit with me.

  15. I love the vintage items...especially the clothes! How pretty! I'm liking that disco ball. I'm a disco ball kind of girl but have never found a place for the garden...brilliant!

  16. Very pretty…I am hosting a CSN Giveaway on my blog. I would love for you to stop by.

  17. terrific post! You must be a southern olde soul like me. I have such a thing for paintings of women from that era. Your clothes are beautiful and the broches too.

  18. Loved all of your vintage goodies especially your brooches!! Gorgeous!!

  19. Wow, your pictures are just beautiful!
    Thank you for sharing!
