You Say Tomato, I Say, Are You Tricking Me?

Hey friends, I have been so very busy today, I have had no chance to post my few favorite things Monday. God is blessing me with every breath I take, and I am on full speed ahead. My Florida sister has been telling me about her tomatoes she has been growing. I was skeptical and thought she was joking with me. I don't know why I thought she couldn't possibly grow tomatoes in Florida. But low and behold, look at this beauty


Isn't it just lovely. I think that would make a beautiful BLT, don't you

So today I checked out a loft area in town that is for rent. The traffic for this space is much better than the previous one I showed you, and I really liked this one. Take a look


I wanted to share with all of you, Urban Farmhouse Blog. This store almost put me into shock, and it is my inspiration like no other. It is soooo me.


This is one example of what the proprietor has done inside this fabulous store.




And the best thing I could tell you is that last night, Ben called. Boy, it does a mothers heart good to hear her oldest sons voice. I thanked God and told Ben it was the best end to a wonderful weekend full of Gods Blessings. He sounded great. Very positive, full of life, and strong. I am so grateful. Friends, Thank You for all of your prayers. They are so very appreciated.

Hugs from Maine

The light coming from those loft windows is amazing!

I'm in Texas and haven't started my tomatoes yet. I imagine I'll have plenty of time, though....it's almost always warm here...

Exciting updates! Thanks for keeping them coming. I love me a BLT, BTW. But, I never had any luck with a garden during my near decade stint in the Sunshine State. I'm thrilled for your sister.

Just popped by via Just Beachy (Chris') blog. I love what I have seen and read...I read about your shop. Where in Maine will it be, and when is it opening? I am heading to Maine in May and would love to pop in if I am in that neck of the woods!
