In the Doghouse...

or should I say 'on the doghouse?'
It has been a very busy couple of weeks for hubby and myself.
Hubby portrayed Snoopy in our local theater group rendition of the musical 'You're a Good Man Charlie Brown.'
In addition to his daily rehearsals I had performances too.
Here I am at Palm Key as Jane Austen.
The following day I portrayed Emma from Truer Words at Ebenzer Retreat in Rincon.
My mom, from http://sweetbriercottage.blogspot.com/, came for a visit and for hubby's musical performance.
Sunday we took a walk through town enjoying the beautiful sunny day.
Just beyond the ancient brick wall...
the beauty of our town lingers.
Wrought iron gates...
chairs with a view,
and rows of geraniums highlight the landscape.
Tabby walls illuminate a pot of geraniums.
Even the houses are happy:).
A chorus of flowers sing praises to the sunshine.
Lovely old houses, white picket fences, and roses...
does it get any better than this?
A bottle brush bush sways in the afternoon breeze.
It's time to head home as the sun descends for the evening.
I hope to get around blogland this week and catch up on all of your wonderful posts!
I missed you guys this week!

GOOD EVENING DEAR ONE! First of all, thank you for coming by to see me, in spite of such a busy schedule! Then I must agree that we must use whatever we have that God has accorded to us. I just get a kick out of knowing that we serve a CREATOR and that He made us in His image....O.K., that means, CREATIVE BEINGS! I wonder if He gets a kick out of watching our "wheels turn" and plot our next artistic adventure? I bet your little cottage is just as wonderful and even better that an already existing Victorian; we have always dreamed of a stone cottage with a castle type flair, and here we are in this little home that we both felt was for us. With hard work and CASH, we have made it into our haven and most of all, we have learned to be happy with what we have, what we can create and share.

Keep updated to see the message I want to embed into this "series."

Much love to you and blessings from above, Anita

Love the costumes... you certainly look divine in the Jane Austen dress.
Does all that re-enactment make you hunger for a simpler time?

How lovely! I'm so glad that I discovered your blog Jane or should I call you Emma? Your photographs are just amazing. I'm trying to picture where your picture-perfect town might be.

Best,
Bonnie

Kim-

What a fun trip you've taken us on, through the performances by you and your husband, to the magical beauty of your town! You look amazing as Jane Austen and Emma! And your husband in that Snoopy suit atop the doghouse is priceless!

I love the smiling house, and all the beautiful scenery and flowers. The bottle brush is certainly something I've never seen before! This post made me happy. ;-)
