Loving the Days

Outside and on the porch

I'm also loving these darling
olive trees I've found in town

Aren't they cute?

I'm loving all the little topiaries
I'm seeing in the magazines and blogs~

I'm growing some Rosemary and Thyme
topiaries too!

Have you seen these vintage french trivets
in some of the Scandinavian blogs and magazines?

I found a few while on vacation weeks ago
and I am finally getting them in the store
in the next couple of days...

It really pays to crawl along the floors
and dig in boxes, who knows what
you'll find?

I had to keep one for myself.
hanging from my ceiling pot rack
so cute!

(I'll have other goodies too ;)

Time seems to be slipping away from me
during these almost Summer days...

I will try to post about the weekend
field trip and get to emails too~

Where does the time go and most of all...
Thank you for being patient with me!

I know I've written about this before, but...
what do you do when time is tight?

Au revoir for now~

Tracie!! YOU WON! Yay for you! :)

I actually am picking TWO winners this time, because I am SOOO late posting the winner...oops.

Which brings me to your post about time getting away from us...yes, know it well!

I have had to take a more relaxed attitude about it all and just figure that unless something is life & death, it will just have to wait 'til tomorrow... I do my best and the rest is, well...gonna have to wait til I arise the next day. :)

Congratulations, Tracie, and I'll have to get your mailing info, etc. so I can send you your winnings! :)

P.S.... I am loving all the new things coming to your shop!!!

I love your olive trees. I wish we could grow them here. When time gets away I actually try to stay calm and get done what I can and try to worry about what I can't. Geez that sounds why can't I do it?

Andrea said...

Love the trivet! I've been waiting to see when your new items would be in the looking forward to them.

I am in love with your olive trees. I wonder if I would be able to have those in pots here in Texas? How mediterranean! What's time????

Laura said...

Hi Tracie!
Love all wire ware! I have been collecting it for a long time and it has become popular all over again...your trivet is super!
The olive trees are everything such a Mediterranean look! Congrats on winning Ruth's give away....we are unbelievably lucky ladies...
Take care, Laura

I have to tell you I loved the write up you had about memorial Day I printed it out and read it to my family before we ate on MOnday..... my Dad had tears in his eyes... thanks
PS I just get done what I can and forget the rest...

Hi Tracie,

Love your olive trees and I hope they do well for you.
Aren't topiary trees wonderful. I have a few.

Time getting away on us.... I wished I knew the answer.
I can't believe that it is going to be June in a few days.
I often try to make lists and work through them.
I should not be sitting in front of the computer and should go and do something.

I love the olive tree topiaries! I love olive trees period. couldn't get much more tight than it is right now for us - the end of school is like that every year with 3 kids - I'm trying to not get too stressed, but it's tough! I'm looking forward to June 13th when summer begins for us!

June said...

Hi Tracy,
I think I've told you this before, but I adore your porch. I could hang out there for days. Till you called the cops on me I love those little olive trees. You have them potted up so pretty. I can't offer any advice about the time thing, because the older I get the faster it goes by.
Thank you for the lovely messages you leave me. They make my day!

Suzy said...

Love your porch. I know what you mean with the time running away, before I know it my whole week is gone.

Wishing you a magical day. Suzy

HI TRACIE! How lovely isn't it to just sit and relax on "the porch" (in my case, the bistro area) and take in the beauty? I came very close the other day to buying a little olive plant as well. I just might go back today! Have another outstanding day sweet lady! Anita

La Table De Nana said...

Tracie I fell in LOVE w/ Olive Trees in Europe..How I wished I could have brought one back.(for indoors of course!)I love have wonderful taste in everything!
Love visiting~

Jacque said...

Hi Tracie! Your olive trees are really looking great! I love topiaries too. About time getting away--I totally know where you are coming from. My hubbie and I took a walk around the farm the other night and we were blown away by how much we have accomplished in the short time we have been here but at the same time we see so much more that must be done and that we want to do AND so little time to do them all in. If we could just turn back the clock--our youth,our strength, and our health, WOULDN'T it be great? Oh well....C'est la vie and I wouldn't have it any other way! Love your store and your blog AND your taste in I said, one day I hope mine grows up to be just like yours!!

Alice W. said...

So beautiful! Like something out of our favorite magazine ;) I am loving topiaries even more now than I did before...and would love to grow them...and lots of other plants indoors. The trivets are lovely and so unique!
And I completely hear you on the time thing...feelin the same way here...
Wishing you a beautiful day!

Sandi said...

Your porch looks so lovely and the olive trees look wonderful.I have always wanted to try a rosemary topiary...however I am afraid I will kill it! :(
I love rosemary and buy it every year !

♥Mimi♥ said...

Tracie, I always use store bought pizza crust...that is, unless I have company and want to impress☺ Kiddo, anchovies and I just don't get along...eeewwww! So happy you like them, someone has to☺

Zita - Mlle Magpie said...

Such a lovely porch to spend time on. Those olive trees are wonderful, Tracie.

Petit Coterie said...

Hi Tracie, I love the trivet, what a great find. Time? I seem to have no time at all. But it's better then having to much time on your hands. How is the walking? I'm mentally with you each morning. xo

The Victorian Parlor said...


It is difficult to balance the time once spring arrives with all of the gardening and outings taking place. I find that I have not spent as much time blogging with all of the outdoor requirements right now. This weekend I'll be painting the fence:)

Blessings for a wonderful weekend,
