20 July

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I got a chance to walk about Beacon Hill before work one morning.

The window boxes are just so beautiful.

I absolutely love Beacon Hill.

I've been searching for a bedroom rug for years

and I finally found one while shopping at Home Goods.

It was a great price...though still a little more dear than I would have preferred.

It was so worth it and has just the right amount of just the right colours.

Tucker likes it as well.

We had a crazy storm Tuesday evening.

It rained as hard as it ever could rain.

All the commuters (including my husband and I)

were drenched.

When we finally got home and dried off

the sunset and clouds were pretty spectacular.

My geraniums are blooming beautifully out on the porch

They look so pretty.

My daughter bought me this sweet little vintage stationary

for Mother's Day.

I found a pillow that matches it perfectly!

It's on the rocking chair in the kitchen

and it is so cheery!

  1. The window boxes are gorgeous! Glad you found a rug you like so well (the cat, too. :-) ). I need to find a Home Goods store. I have heard of them, and I think they have one in town. Glad you made it home safely in the storm and had a pretty view afterwards. I have some pink geraniums on the back patio - love them. I love pretty stationery but rarely write letters any more. The pillow is cute!

  2. You live in a beautiful place, rainstorms notwithstanding.

    Your bedroom rug does look perfect and it's always reassuring to know that The Cat approves.

  3. Nice rug, that was worth the wait. Looks lovely especially with the lovely kitty on it. Love, love the pic of the window box and bike. Beautiful view after the storm. Geraniums always make me think of my mom because she planted them each year down the side of the driveway.

  4. very nice rug. you can never go wrong at Home Goods!
    Love Beacon Hill! has been far too long since we've been walking there. (2 summers). I wish we would get a soaking rain and thunderstorm. We had light rain this morning before church but now it's a hot 84 and VERY humid with sunny skies. we need rain here in eastern NY as all the lawns are getting brittle! But it HAS been a great summer for good weather!

    Love geraniums! This year though I did petunias.

    happy Sabbath!!
