F I'm So Vintage: raindrops on roses........
Tuesday, April 10, 2012

raindrops on roses........

and whiskers on kittens.......brown paper packages tied up with string, these are a few of my favorite things.  I know, I'm singing again. Just be happy that you aren't here to hear it in person. 


I love roses and I love white picket fences. Aren't they the ultimate in Americana. I know that it has always been my dream to have a little cottage with a white picket fence and cascading roses. So, I have been collecting photos to add to my wish folder and thought I would share some of my finds today.

When the dog bites, when the bee stings,.... or in my case being poked, stabbed and prodded for three days...I simply remember my favorite things and then I don't feel so bad.


Yesterday was spent in the ER, where my supposed tick bite turned out to be an abscessed spider bite. ICK!!!  Treatment on it was not fun and I'm on an antibiotic that I noticed they give for anthrax. Really????


Today I was off to the regular doctor to check on these other problems I am having. Tomorrow there is more poking and prodding in my morning lineup.  YUCK!!!

  1. Oh My Laura, that is so scary! I've been seeing a ton of spiders the last few days. I am so terrified of them! I may never sleep again! I hope you get well soon with that! Hang in there, hopefully this too shall pass and at least you're singing.! I'd probably be in the fetal position sucking my thumb! LOL

  2. Well at least you can cross anthrax off your list of things to worry about!
    Feel better! Love the fence and roses in the first photo the best!

  3. Laura, I would be in heaven if I had those roses in the first picture. You know those old country roses had real fragrance. Too many of the newer roses have very little aroma. I loved all the pictures. Smiles, Susie(She Junks)

  13. I love these images and wish I had a place to grow some of those. I have had a rose bush before and the bugs always killed it. I do have some small knockout roses that we planted last year and they are full of buds.

  18. I would live a rose-covered cottage, too. So romantic and beautiful.

    So glad you found out what the spider bite is, so that it can be treated and, hopefully, heal up soon!

  19. Talk about envy! I can't imagine waking up to this beauty everyday. A rose covered picket fence! Hey, I'd love just life NEAR one!
