That picture of the corn in the sink really brings back memories! Beautiful photos, lovely spot. It's cooler here, too. A plus and a minus, I think.


You made me homesick!! I also miss Kansas homegrown tomatoes! Yummy!!!
your friends' pond is really nice, love all
the flowers, too.
Thanks for sharing!

What pretty country. Nice the weather is being unseasonable. My sis lives on 7 acres of horse property that used to be in the middle of nowhere and now is surrounded by suburbia. It's a trifle disconcerting.
Enjoy your week,

Karla, your friends home is wonderful. I have a little creek envy too.
I had fresh corn tonight, fresh out of the freezer but it was really good too.Have fun with sugarwings.

What beautiful pictures - you absolutely captured the feeling of the country. What a wonderful home they have! This is so strange of me to mention, but that fabric under the sink is stunning - love it!!


gorgeous! Oh how I miss the county. Living in the burbs just sucks sometimes. Those spring rolls look fantastic! I almost made those for craft day. Now that I know you like them I'll have to make them for us :)

Karla, it looks SO pretty and peaceful at your friends house...the fields of flowers could not be any prettier...i know what you mean about civilization creeping up on you...when we moved here, we had the only house for about a mile on our side of the road...all of that land sold and we have neighbors on either side now...no houses across the street or behind though...so it's still kind of country...and i can only "see" one of the neighbors...


Ok, admit it...you showed those piles of hat flowers just to tease me!! Now I will have to check out your little shop to see what needs rescueing!! The pond was lovely but with Sugarwings about, it is good NOT to have bodies of water in your yard!! I know this because with 3 daycare kids under the age of 3, I have to keep a CLOSE eye on where everyone is when we play outside....I have two little ponds, both big enough to cause trouble for littles.


I think Kansas heat has moved west - it's scorching hot in western Canada. Very unusual and no one has air conditioning. I'm off to take a cold shower before bed!



It's so funny because I live in a small city next to many larger cities in Southern California and long for your country yard...I love when you show your backyard and your little yellow brick trail in what looks like woods...and the bonfire you had...and you dont consider it the countryside...it is all perspective! The photos were beautiful and whatever those roll-up thingies were looked yummy!
I never thought to freeze fresh corn, that is a wonderful idea! Do you grow your own?
Hugs! karen...

Oh so lovely.....


What a lovely yard! We started having July triple digit temps in June this year!UGH! I usually don't mind the heat, but the lakes are all so low from the drought that we haven't even taken the boat out!

Karla, your friends pond and stream is so lovely, I love the picture with the heron standing in the pond. Very nice captures.

You know, you may not have a stream, but you do have a yellow brick road full of amazing little finds along the way.

Karla, WOW abusolutely stunning, I myself have creek envy now, but I am big enough to admit that I have yard of envy of you too lol Everytime you show pictures of sugarwings out on lil walks I turn a lil green lol we live in the city and are lucky enough to have almost an acre, but it is all uhmm how to put it nicely...not green not green at all lol and when we let the landscape grow it is weeds that grow and take over, we can do those really well :) btw thank you for your kind post on my blog. Hope you have a beautiful summer and oh I wish I could taste some of that corn :) Rose


Oh, that sink full of corn looks so amazingly yummy! I love summer sweet corn here in New England!


What great photos! Thank you for sharing, I feel like we just took a little va-ca for a few minutes, what a treat!

Loving the dinner photos, but especially the one of your kitchen with the corn!


Do you think your friend would mind if I curled up on the grass with a book? Her place looks so inviting! And she sets a darn pretty table, too!


Princess Dresses and Tea Party Toys - yippee! Can't wait until my fairy grandbaby is old enough to play tea party!



Kansas looks so pretty!! I was on a blog from here in Indy Horton's of Tipton. A neat little shop and she just started a blog. I saw that your friend 'Raised in Cotton' is on her blog. It is so neat. She & her husband have a hardware store....half his and the other half is neat things of hers. It is hortonsoftipton.blogspot.com. I checked out raised in cotton and saw your picture in it. Small world!


What a wonderful yard but I think yours is just as beautiful!!!



Creek Envy! lol. Is that half off on etsy for July still on (as long as I email you)?


Hello Karla,
I have not been by your blog in a while. I'm sorry about that but I did go through to catch up. I love the fairy book you are working on. It is sooo cute, I'm sure sugarwings will love it. Its always a pleasure going trough all your lovely posts. Love the post about your garden too. It looks gorgeous.
Have a wonderful week.
