Full Bloom Cottage

Many of you know Loretta from Full Bloom Cottage. She also has a beautiful window space here at Country Roads. She's been working on a makeover the past couple of days and it all turned out so beautiful. Here are a few pictures to show you what I mean. . .

I remind myself daily of how fortunate I am to have a store, Country Roads, that is filled with such incredible talent!


Fall at Country Roads

Fall is one of our very favorite times of the year at Country Roads. We have "only" just begun to get the store decorated for Fall. Yesterday,  Brande started with the area by the front door. Here are a few of my favorite vignettes. . . 

We've still got the front window to decorate, the inside of the rest of the store, and of course, our favorite. . .  Johnnye Merle's Gardens and Nursery. And speaking of our gardens, we will be having another little "Garden Party" in late October. Please check the store for details. And I know that Fall doesn't officially arrive until Sunday the 22nd, but I do want to wish you a "Happy Fall". And come on down and see us! We have everything you need for your Fall decorating, including your gardens as well!!


A Garden

I don't know what it is about having a garden, but for me it just makes me happy. I so appreciate the different colors of nature, and also the brilliant colors of some of the bugs that also love my flowers!

I can never remember the name of this plant, but I so love it. And the colors of this bug are so pretty! My son has the same plant at his house and it is now taller than his roof! One of the reasons love my garden so much is because it doesn't ask a lot of me. It only wants to be watered when needed and the rewards from that watering are wonderful! I'm linking up this week with Tracie for her "Garden Party". Now if you want to talk about a beautiful garden, stop by and pay her a visit!
