Tagged to share favorite spot.



Charlene in SC has tagged me to share my favorite spot. I'm assuming she means my favorite stitching spot? I would say it has to be my stitching chair inside the house, and my garden outside. Yes, I have two. When I can't get outside I land in the chair in my front room to stitch. No television,no phone, just my favorite things and a view of the garden and front yard. Ivy has started growing around my front windows and it looks like I am outdoors. It stays green most every winter. I used to stitch on the couch until this summer when I sat it by the road. Someone found a treasure! I tag Allie, Sharon, and May Britt....(payback ;-) . Ladies, show us your favorite spot!

  1. What a wonderful spot. I love the upholstery on the chair - very garden feel to it. Your house seems Victorian?

  2. OH my gosh! What a beautiful room! We started to remodel our living room earlier this year and then put it on hold for the Summer. We're gearing up to start phase 2 which is basecoat painting. Phase 3 will start right after the holidays when we put the hardwood flooring in. I can only hope that someday my living room looks as gorgeous as yours!

  3. Yes Susan, it is over 130 yrs old and is a brick Victorian farmhouse. I love it. It is an old "feel good" house. I "felt" it the moment I stepped on the porch, this was my home.

  4. Thanks Pam. I wish I had hardwood floors. My DH says they are too cold and noisy. Phooey! It is always something when you own a home isn't it? Luckily I enjoy working on it. I plastered the walls myself, then painted them pale green. I spend the most time in there,usually stitching or going through "Romantic Home" magazines,unless a friend comes over to join me for tea. My husband stays in the living room where the TV is.Surprise huh?

  5. It looks just like you. Serene and restful. What grows in your garden?

  6. Well thank you Kathleen, that is sweet. In my garden I have mostly perenials, but do plant cosmos,zinnia, and pansies each Spring. My favorite perenials are foxglove,campanula,iris,bluebells,fern,hollyhock,globe thistle,sweet annie,lavender,roses....ok, I guess I love them all. I also have a variety of flowering shrubs and a few herbs. Just a mix of what I love, not prize winning specimens, but they are all winnders in my garden.(even some flowering weeds)

  7. What a great spot, Pat. Very feminine and delicate - no surprise - just like your work. I don't spend as much time in or attention to my garden as in the past, and so this year was quite surprised to see the pretty blooms on the remaining chives. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Pat, I love seeing your home environs...so peaceful and feminine..

    Thanks for tagging me to show mine. I just got home from my trip to Mexico, so after I settle in I will show my favorite spot too.
    It is nowhere as serene as yours. Much more chaotic...but there is some method to it....

    ....and I thought of you while I was collecting shells along the beach, but was most delighted by the lucky glass I found...
