Our Southern Home

Hi Everyone--
I just figured out how to make a collage (with the help and patience
of Heather!) and I wanted to post a picture of my New Orleans home.
Somehow, I guess with this being on the internet, it's easier to picture
people when we know where they're at and get a flavor for the area...

I just realized that Dayle has Simple Pleasures, so I am linking this up because one of my simple pleasures is planting a garden...I would tell you that it is rocking in the rocking chairs on the porch but lately it's been about 5,000 degrees here (just kidding!) so we are outside as little as possible.

If you click on the picture, it will enlarge it as it's a little difficult
to see in this size.

Also, if you would like to add your name to my drawing for the mixed media piece, please scroll down and just let me know.

The link party will be on Friday thru Sunday--put the title of your favorite song on your blog and let us know what it is!!!
I can't wait to know what it is!



  1. figured it out and it posted perfectly. I even left-clicked on it to see what would happen. You saved it/posted it just right!!! One thing about Picasa, it gets really pesky when you try to upload more than four photos at a time. Four seems to be the magic number...if you have to do multiples...but I like one at a time too. :) :) Is that a magnolia tree? I love magnolias. We have them here in Oregon...but it's a different type...called a saucer magnolia, I believe.. I've seen a few around town..Those large off-white blooms are beautiful!!! Yeah!!!! Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

  2. Well done Cindy. Your home is full of Southern charm. Making collages is a bit of a challenge for me. It builds character.


  3. Nice home....didn't realize where you lived. HOWEVER....collages, oh no!!! you might get hooked! Photobucket's collages are very easy to make and it is free.

  4. Great job, I haven't ever tried to do collages yet.... You have a very beautiful house.

    Hugs XX

  5. Beautiful home Cindy!! Perfect example of southern charm!

  6. You have a beautiful home - true south.


  7. Wow, it's stunning! And your home has such class! It's so beautiful! I love gardening, too, but mine right now is a vegetable garden! Today I was eating cherry and grape tomatoes straight off the plant! :) Yum!

  8. What a beautiful home you have Cindy. Such old world charm and your garden looks gorgeous.
    Compared to that I live in a cupboard (closet to you!) A tiny dollshouse of a bungalow but we do have a lovely garden. Everyone who calls always admires the garden. That's all down to DH. He has green fingers!
    Big Hugs

  9. Ps. Since you have told me what you can use tags for I think , WOW, a neat idea for books!! I leave books open all of the time, my Bible included. A tag would be something handy. How do you learn about making one. Is there an easy tutorial out there? (perhaps you have done it and I have forgotten?)

  10. Your home and gardens are beautiful! I have tried to do a collage, but I'm still a fumble fingers with most things technnical.

    I love collages. They are kind of a simple pleasure all their own.

  11. What a beautiful home and gardens!! I would love to come for a visit and sit on that lovely porch and have a cup of tea with you. Wouldn't that be fun?!!

    You did a great job on the collage!!

    Have a lovely day.


  12. What a beautiful home you have, Cindy. That front porch is a dream of mine. The collage turned out great, and thanks so much for linking up today. I went in and edited your link to be just your permalink, so future readers at Simple Pleasures can find this delightful post.

  13. Lovely home Cindy.

    You did a great job with your collage. Isn't it so much fun to learn how to do something new?

  14. Your home is very beautiful. I didn't even know you could make a collage with photos. It's hard enough for me to get one photo to work. Blessings!

  15. The collage turned out very good and your home is so very nice. I have only been there once but there are so many beautiful homes. Have a great day. Hugs, Kim

  16. Hi, again. Got your message and I found the birdie and printed it out. Thanks--have a great day!
