Straight From the Heart


My Angel Trumpet plant is in full bloom,
the smell is so sweet on the porch...
So heady in the warm evening last night.

The flowers have bloomed and the time's
finally (yes finally) arrived
to open My Petite Maison doors
early next week...


Through many changes this year,
I have made friends...
Much more encouragement than dreamed
possible when I started this little blog
that's become a piece of my heart.

You held me up (you know who you are)
and listened during those late nights...
or should I say early mornings?
Dreams, the highs, the lows,
the in-betweens ;)

I've met so many kind souls here that it's
important to me to keep this blog what
it started out to be...
my day to day or week by week
musings... for me to share with you
and you share back with me.

Not a place for me to feel comfortable to say
"look at my finds in my little shop"
to friends...

So, the doors will be opening next week...
The baskets will be emptied and beginning
to fill up my humble petite store.


I hope you will visit me here too
Whether you're looking just to see
what I'm up to...
"The Flea Market Way of Life"

~This truly comes from my heart~

We're taking the first part of the week
to go antiquing...


Au Revoir for now...


xoxo~

I have never been close to one of those flowers... I didn't know they smelled good.
The pumpkin photo brings back memories of a pumkin carriage that used to be at my local park... I don't know why they removed it... VERY SAD!
HOPE your antiquing was WONDERFUL!
ENJOY your weekend!
