Garage sale find,garden,Beagle Bailey and 1 ATC

I'm hosting a Nick Bantock "around the world swap".My country is of course France.This is my practice card.....

Bailey,our grand-Beagle!!!!!

This year the castor bean plants are out of control!!!

I finally got my very own white picket fence last year for my birthday!I love it!

Another back yard view.Our yard is a jungle this year due to all of the heat and rain!!!

A view from the back deck

My garage sale find of the week!A really nice OLD jar that has been turned to deep  purple by burying it in the Arizona sand for several years. Rarely do you find glass of this deep purple here in Illinois...guess we don't have as much magnesium in our soil. 


  1. Your home is beautiful Sue!!! I LOVE the look of your blog! It's absolutely YOU.

  2. never heard of glass going purple like this,amazing! Love your house and garden and dog!

  3. Sue-
    I love your "practice" Nick ATC. So, you can give it to me should you decide to put it in the swap... I think it's worthy and shouldn't be considered "practice"!!!! LOVe it!!!!
