Doesn't the home look bigger? I think the end result stunning. This project probably wasn't terribly expensive but it added great value to this delightful cottage. Love the hydrangeas too.
We are supposed to have record high temperatures today and tomorrow. I have been busy trying to beat the heat so I can sit outside and simply enjoy it. My goldfinches are back and those yellow wild canaries are making me happy. The chirping outside is unbelieveable and it's so nice to have all the windows open.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend. ♥Rosemary

Pet soup kitchens are becoming more popular, as more people -- and welfare organizations -- seek to establish a cheap, community-based means of supporting pet owners in need.
To learn more about pet food pantries, please watch video story here.
Pets are people too. My own dog endorses all projects that provide for animals.
Thanks for stopping by the cottage today. ♥Rosemary and Webster

Thirty-four years after a documentary film introduced the world to Grey Gardens and its eccentric occupants, a new movie on HBO is again casting light on the legend of this East Hampton property. In 1979, when the last photo was taken, Sally Quinn, the writer and Washington hostess, and her husband Benjamin Bradlee, former editor of The Washington Post, purchased the property, which had fallen into complete disarray, and set out to restore it to its earlier splendor.
View the slide show with 12 photos via The New York Times.
Albert Maysles visited Grey Gardens to celebrate the 30th anniversary of his film several years ago after the house and gardens were restored. This 10-minute film from YouTube shows Maysles' reaction with footage from the original documentary. This will give you a glimpse into the "real Grey Gardens" and the two Edies. Don't say I didn't warn you about how shocking it was while the two eccentrics were in residence.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today for a visit. I hope you found this post to be informative and entertaining. I don't have HBO, do you? Should I get it? Are you enjoying Grey Gardens? Let me know. ♥Rosemary

This seemed like a pleasant thing to post at the end of this lovely day. Hopefully you will sleep like a log and not need these instructions. Pleasant dreams when you tuck in.
I am looking forward to seeing Anna Paquin on Hallmark Hall of Fame tonight at 9pm on CBS. “The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler” is based upon the true story a Polish Catholic social worker in the early 1940s who is credited with saving the lives of 2,500 Jewish children during World War II.
Check the local listings for your area. This is on the CBS network, not the Hallmark Channel.
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between

This YouTube video is from The Singing Detective with Bing Crosby and The Andrews Sisters singing in the background. I am going to see if this old BBC series is available at my local library. It looks great. There was a 2003 (American) movie too but the English TV series looks way better.
I hope this brightens your Sunday morning and inspires you to accentuate the positive all day long!
