Things I love . . .

My sweet husband and each of my amazing sons . . . (This is an older photo)
(Oh, and that pointy thing that our photo is stuck in is an old flower frog!)

Ellie, Chester and Thelma . . .



Fabric, I so love fabric . . .

Cloches, little birds and my antique china . . .


My framed tapestry and statuary ~ everywhere . . .


Old clocks, clock faces and strange little paper boxes and old paper . . .


Of course, nests and eggs . . .

More birds and dried hydrangeas . . .



The azure sky in the fall . . .


The colors of the turning leaves . . .
(feel free to right click any of these photos to use for a desktop background!)



More dried hydrangeas . . .

Just a glimpse at a few things I love! xxoo Dawn

The picture with you with your sons and hubby is so beautiful. I got choked up, thank goodness you had the cute, funny little critters right after then I was laughing. You listed all the things that I love too! It's so nice to hear a simliar voice. As always I LOVED your pictures and comments. Dawn have a wonderful time this weekend. We're all waiting for details ha ha.
Best,
Kathy

I did not realize you have only sons. Living in a house with all girls, I can not imagine all boys. It must be fun being the girl though !! Clarice

Dawn, I raised four sons! So I can understand why they were on the top of the list!

I too love, vintage china, birds, fall colors....what a wonderful post!

Dawn...
Thank you so much for your ever so kind words on the post about the loss of my brother a year ago. Your words were so heartfelt...and I appreciate them and you for them!

On another note...If there is an award for mother sainthood...I would love to give it to you...it is amazing to me that you have 5 sons...not that sons aren't great...they are...I love all of my sons...all one of them! Well...2 if you count my son-in-law! You somehow make it look and sound so easy...I know you just have this peaceful grace that surrounds you...I can tell it in your words, your pictures and in your home...one would think with all boys that you could never have such a romantic style as you do...but you pull it off and so well! I love your blog...when I am stressed sometimes I just put on my Praise and Worship music...or my ocean sounds...and then I go to my favorite blogs...and yours sits at the top! Thanks for always sharing your GRACE!

Have a blast in Dallas this weekend! You will be missed...but we all look forward to the things you will see and tell us about!

Blessings...

Dawn, you are blessed to have so many children. That is wonderful. Thank you for your comment. I am trying to focus on something positive. Great idea about starting out with one room. Also I just got the cars you sent me. Dawn, it is so beautiful. I love the postcard you enclosed!! How very kind of you. I think it was one I had admired before on your site. Was it? love nita

Love your blog, but for heaven's sake what is that in the top picture in front of you and your boys? It looks like some sort of torture device, or a frog for flowers, huge flowers. Interesting.

Blessings,

Never mind. I "get it" now. It is a flower frog . . . holding up a picture, which you took a picture of. . . got it. Sorry.

Blessings,

I love being the mom of a son, and lucky you, to have five! All handsome too!
I've enjoyed this beautiful post. It says much about you. Thank your for offering your lovely photos for a desktop background. That is very kind of you.
My hydrangeas are just about that color now. I should pick them soon.
