A Thank You Roses

Good Monday to you ALL! I was delightfully surprised to see a surge of visitors on my blog the last few days. As I was doing my routine stroll to my fav blogs, I found out that I have been featured on Brenda's blog, Cozy Little House. Her blog never fails to inspire everyone who comes and visit her. The photo collection of her garden speaks of a caring and generous homebody who would never fall short of a warm welcome on your visits. I can imagine myself enjoying a stroll barefoot through her garden on a lazy afternoon and holding a big glass of lemonade. To top it all, I was given a WELCOME party and am very honored to be one of the special guests. Thank you so much Brenda and HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to you! I gathered some roses in my garden for you. I was also invited by Brenda to join the world wide game where I would post my #6 photo featured on my blog. Above is the photo I posted in February 2010. It is a shot of an old re-purposed hutch that I turned into an upright floor cabinet currently housing my creamery collectibles at Robin's Nest. As part of this game, I am to invite 10 wonderful bloggers to also participate and carry on the torch. I thought it would be easy to just choose my most favorite ones...however, that is not the case as I saw my list multiplied in numbers. So, I have randomly picked the following: (1) Kerri, Driftwood Interiors; (2) Daniela, Dream Shabby Chic; (3) Janet, Gardeners Cottage; (4) Jamilyn, Living It At Home; (5) Ever Chic Bardot In Blue; (6) Debby Lee, Inspired Design; (7) The Zhush; (8) Catherine, The Shiny Pebble; (9) Mckenzie, Design Darling (10) Chania, RAZMATAZ This is my first game to have been invited to participate and I wish to invite all my other favorite bloggers to join me next time which I am looking forward to. Yehey, blogging is EXCITING...have a great week ahead!

Congratulations Mary Ann, so well deserved. Brenda is such a sweetheart isn't she? And thanks so much for including me in your list of favourites! I think it'll be quite interesting to see what my 6th photo was, it seems such a long time ago, even though it was only a few months. Have a wonderful day,
Kerri xx

You are too sweet to include me in this...I just went and looked up that photo...ugh, this is back when I really kinda s(*&ed at blogging...hmmm. But, your roses are gorgeous! :)

Hi MaryAnn! I was delighted to see your post with the roses from your garden. Do you know the name of them? Just yesterday I cut some blooms off of my Lincoln Rose tree and took some photos of them. They have a lovely fragrance and I enjoy them more indoors because the tree is in a location where I don't get to see it that often. Have a great day!
