Bunting in the Pergola


Hello everyone,
There is going to be a celebration 
@ My Cozy Corner.
 Let's Party.
Is it BUNTING or BANNERS?
I ordered this beautiful bunting from
Esty to hang in the Pergola. 
The bunting reminds me of Downton Abbey's 
wedding for Mr. Carson and Mrs. Hughes.
We are not having a wedding, but
 we are going to have a birthday.
My Birthday~Big 75~
Hubby and I are hanging more bunting 
in the patio this weekend. Our family 
will be arriving from near and far to
help me celebrate three quarters of century of life.
Boy! A lot of water under my bridge...
The ordered 40 feet of linen bunting, and I cut it into
two 20 foot lengths. My granddaughter and her girl friend 
help me measure and nailed it to the beams.  
The next day it rained and now
the bunting is a little curly. Now my new
 bunting has a little character and so sweet.
I found my light at a yard sale and we had
an electrician wire it to the pergola.
A wonderful setting for al fresco dinner.
I found this watering can planter and petunias 
at Walmart the other day.
The watering can has holes in the bottom
and I water it every other day. Loving Summer. 
Wishing you a safe and happy holiday weekend.
Joyously,
Betty

It's the Little Things that Matter #2



 Wave Petunias
 Amaryllis
We can live in the past
or dream about the future,
or we can live for today.
We can give up when the road becomes difficult,
or we can keep on going
until the view is much better.
The choices in life are endless,
and so is the potential for gratitude.
~Nancye Sims

Hope you enjoy the holiday weekend.

Peony Tea Time~Pick a Winner



(A)
Hi everyone,
It's Tea Time and I have picked the
last bouquet of Peonies for the season.
I just love the way the peonies photograph.
This Peony Tea Time will be in my 2017 
 Tea Time Calendar.
Last December I made a calendar for 2016 with
the photos from my Tea Time review 2015...
GO HERE
While I was styling this tea table with different settings
I thought it would be fun to see what you
would pick for the month of May 2017.  
(B)

(C)
When I was a little girl, it would be a special treat to use the tea spoon and put in fresh tea leaves and let it
steep in hot water. 
(D)
(E)
Please help me decide.   I NEED HELP!

It's the Little Things that Matter



Hello everyone,
Today I wanted to share with you what
ready matters to me.
It's The Little Things That Matter.
The beautiful bouquet of roses for Mother's Day.
Take Pleasure in 
the Little Things
If you want to live more, 
you must master the art of 
appreciating the little, everyday
blessings of life. This is not 
altogether a golden world, but
there are countless gleams of gold
to be discovered in it if we give
our minds to them. 
-Henry Alford Porter

A little bird's egg has fallen from the bird's nest that
is tucked in the English Ivy covering my pergola post.
I couldn't see any other activity in the nest.
I hope the mother bird saved the egg.
I am so grateful to have a garden
full of Little Things that Matter.
Joyously,
Betty
