52Q Week 7 ~ What Would You Do If You Knew You Could Not Fail?

This was a question that I really had to contemplate and I suppose the answer changes with each season of life. When I first read the question, many thoughts came to mind, but as I pondered more I wasn't so sure... that's why I choose a rather dreamy background for this question.

A Lovely Gift

Breaking my never-won-anything streak was this sweet creation from a giveaway sponsored by a very talented artist, Diane Knott of Diane Knotts Musings. Not only is she gifted in many artistic areas, she has a delightful blog filled with ideas and inspiration. I certainly have enjoyed getting to meet her and chatting back and forth. I received a package in the mail today with the following items lovingly created by Diane ~ Thank you much, Diane!!!
This adorable Garden Shop scene is one of Diane's own pieces! I wish my front porch looked like this :)
Such a cheerful vignette ~ I love window boxes! Diane included these additional treasures as well.
A music sheet reminding me of the Return of Spring...
A very pretty butterfly bejeweled with an amber gem...
And a vintage style hang tag with with a sweet young girl.
This was a highlight of my week and I sincerely appreciate these thoughtful gifts!

Tagged!

I've been tagged by the designer of these great crocheted neck warmers! Back in the fall I was looking for gift ideas for Christmas. On etsy I found this awesome seller with beautiful, well written patterns for lovely and stylish items. If you are a female relative of mine, you probably received one of these neck warmers or one similar. While meandering about various blogs, I was delighted to find dear Bella McBride, the very talented lady who designed these patterns (and many more). You can visit her etsy shop here.

~oOo~

Well, I've been tagged by Bella and here are the rules: I'm to pick the 6th picture from my 6th folder, post it, blog about it, and then choose 6 other bloggers and let them blog about their 6 and 6!

~oO0~

Here it is... taken this past fall. The tree in the foreground with the heart-shaped leaves is an Eastern Redbud. It has beautiful pink flowers in the spring, doesn't grow too large and will grow in our high ph soil called Marl. The red tree across the street is a sugar maple that is vibrant with color each autumn. (this picture was taken on a cloudy day)

If you'd like to play along, consider yourself TAGGED. Just let me know because I'd really like to see your picture too. Post the photo from your 6th folder, 6th picture.

Hoya Plant in Bloom

Remember this picture I posted a little while ago? It is a tiny bud on my Hoya plant. Watch as it develops and opens to a very unique blossom.
Three days later... Two days after that... After two more days... Four days later...
and finally one day later... how it looked this morning... the flower is fragrant too...looking to the left on the plant, you can see the location of the flower cluster... wouldn't it be magnificent to have blossoms filling this plant?
I started this plant from a small cutting about two years ago. It flowered for the first time in August 08. Although I have read that Hoya plants like lots of sunlight, this one lives quite happily in front of a north facing window.
