Deja Vue

I'm still visiting the sights for Vanessa's Halloween Bash-Blog Party, when what do I see, but a blog from "Anything Goes Here" titled "The Florist Estate Sale"! Of course, this gave me deja vue of my own little flower shop that I recently closed due to the economy. The Estate sale was from a gentleman who was a florist for 75 years in Elgin, Illinois. Scrolling through the photos brought deja vue of my own little shop. Glassware, containers, florist supplies, christmas decorations, baskets, the list goes on and on! Florists must be a collector of anything they think they can use! Here are some photos from my shop who I was co-owner with my twin sister. Just a few photos.

Happy Blogging Again....

Well, I am finally able to post a blog today. My laptop has been out of commission for over a week! I wasn't able to post anything for Vanessa's Halloween Blog Party! I was out that day with hubby to a "Fall Extravaganza" at Burns Nursery, our local landscaper and plant place. He has wonderful landscape ideas in the nursery, and it is all setup for Halloween, with his own maze of hay bails and pumpkins by the tons! He also has little areas setup for you to photograph your little spooks. I will post pictures later. I've been visiting all the other blogs on Vanessa's site and enjoying their Halloween posts. So, I'm off to visit more and will post more to my blog later in the week!

Halloween and The San Antonio Rose

Wow, another month is gone! Where has the time gone? October is one of my favorite months. Not only is it the month my daughter was born, but it is the month my grandmother was born also. She was actually born on Halloween! The year was 1908 though. She is no longer with us, but her spirit lives on. She was the original "San Antonio Rose". My grandfather wrote the words to the famous song which was about my grandmother. She loved roses! Happy Birthday Jennifer and my sweet little "Nana".
