Easily Entertained!



Keeping this post short and sweet!





These two beauties 

arrived in our mailbox this week.

MacKenzie-Childs Summer Catalog

and Beekman 1802 Summer Almanac.




The Beekman 1802 brand is new to me, but they 

recently partnered with MacKenzie-Childs

to offer a great Flower Market soap and lotion set 

in a Courtly Check container.

I'm a new fan ~ more to come in a future post!




As much as I enjoy reading blogs and 

viewing my Instagram feed,

I rather enjoy the simple pleasure of quiet time

in a favorite rocker on our upstairs porch.





It's my escape for relaxing with a 

good book or favorite publications. 

I feel as if I'm up in the trees above the garden.

Yes, I'm easily entertained!





I fixed myself a little afternoon snack.

You all know I have a sweet tooth!





With cupcakes on my mind from my last post, 


I couldn't resist one of these darling flower bouquet 

delights from Whole Foods Bakery.





Of course I had to pop it into one of my

Courtly Check cup cake enhancers.

I like to eat a cupcake with a fork,

and these little cup cake holders make it oh so easy!





Look at the darling detail

on these little cakes!




The Language and Sentiment of Flowers available here on Amazon.

According to the Language of Flowers,

Violets suggest a "pledge of faithfulness" and

say, "you occupy my thoughts."





Nothing could be truer when it comes to my favorite brand!

MacKenzie-Childs stole my heart almost 30 years ago, 

and I'm still adding their whimsical pieces to our home.

I'll be placing an order tonight!

Free shipping with no minimum through June 14, 2017.  

What a deal!

The summer we married, my husband was in graduate school, and I was employed as a teacher. We took a portion of our savings that summer and purchased a sailboat. We christened our Catalina 22, “Hyacinths For The Soul” after Saadi’s poem. Our "Hyacinths" provided years of pleasure.
