~My Mountain top Favorites~

Today I'm joining Laurie at "Bargain hunting and chatting" to show you a few of my favorite things that I just love.... Thanks Laurie!!

I love seeing the Sun come into my Sun room each morning....

I love sitting and having coffee each day in my Sun Room and have my family of deer visit each day....Sorry about the poor quality of picture but had to take it through the screen if I open the door they take off a running ha ha!!

I love seeing all my Daffodils in full bloom...We planted over 650 bulbs last year and this year want to plant 1000....

And this is by far the one thing I love the most...is seeing my sweet little great grand daughter Kyra so healthy this year and collecting her Easter eggs...Ain't God GREAT !!! Look she's even growing hair ha ha!!

I want to thank all of you that came by on my last post and left your kind comments to me...You really don't have a clue how much I needed that today....May all of you have a GREAT weekend.....Until next time from my mountain top to yours,

Hugs and smiles Glria

That Kyra is the cutest thing! I can't imagine how she tugs at your heart. I think we all have a vested interest in her through everyone's prayers when she was born. Loved your pictures in Las Vegas. I just know you must have had a great time. I've met Chari, and she is such a wonderful gal. Have a great weekend. Sally

Praise God for baby Kyra is right!
She is a cutie pie.

Love the deer! :)

Gloria, I love your sunroom. What a blessing to have such a room. The deer are wonderful and I just can't get over all the flowers. So petty. Kyra is just so precious and such a miracle child. Yes indeed, the Lord is wonderful. Praise Him. Hugs, Marty

If I had your house, I just wouldn't leave. Those flowers are so pretty and the deer, awwww. When we owned a home in the NC mountains, I used to feed the deer apple flavored corn. I would shake the container to let them know there was food out. In just a short while they would come out of the woods.

Aaaaaacccckkkk, don't tell me you have a SUNROOM too, sweetpea!!! I lust for a sunroom. Maybe someday....Hmmmmm, it'll take a lot of talking to Love Bunny though.

The Charm of Home said...

Your sunroom is awesome! That must be the most relaxing spot. I love, love your daffodils. My grandmother planted them in mass like that over the hills of our homeplace and I miss them every year! And Kyra, goodness so glad she is healthy. What a blessing to have healthy little children.:)

Gypsy Heart said...

Oh my, I would LOVE to sit out there in the sun room and drink coffee with you! It is beautiful ~ and of course, the daffodils are too.

Kyra is amazing isn't she? Just totally adorable ~

Have a beauty*filled weekend!

A field of daffodils...bliss. Your sweet baby and her basket...she would be my favorite too. I don't blame you for loving the sunroom and to watch the deer...such a treat.

I'm back to blogging...from Florida for a while. I missed you...I'm going to go read your last post.

Gloria, I think everything you showed us is simply special in its own way. Your little Kyra is a beauty and a precious little gift to her family. You just HAVE to enjoy everything up there on your mountain, my friend. Those flowers are gorgeous and you sure went all out with them. And seeing the deer is so special as they wander by. Take care and keep enjoying life! hugs, Sue

Og Gloria, Your grandbaby is such a beautiful little girl. I have to agree that she is the best reason for all of lifes greatness. Your heart must burst with so much love for her.

Joyce said...

Adorable GD and your sun room is so cute with the lobster pillow. Lucky you to have deer roaming in your yard. I bet the deer like to eat your flowers too:)

Sandy said...

Your sunroom is so cozy. I love the idea of oars as table legs. Thanks for all the wonderful pics.

Carole Burant said...

Your great granddaughter is absolutely adorable:-) I'm amazed at all those gorgeous daffodils you've planted!! I only have a handful of them and they haven't even bloomed yet. lol I can imagine how much fun it is to watch the deer...do they eat some of your flowers? I've heard deer can really be bad for that. Your sun room looks so welcoming, especially with the sun shining in:-) xoxo
