Lots Going On Through My Back Door

Good morning and come on in, Through My Back Door. The coffee is waiting, plain old DD today, and I am so happy you chose to stop by. There has been a lot going on Through My Back door lately. Remember Sandi,Daybreak Place, and Carla and Daryl, from Il were here a week ago. You can go on my picture trail and see both of their beautiful homes. Then yesterday three other prim friends came by and visited. Yes we had coffee and talked and talked. Then we went to the Hen and they went to Corner and the other shops in Clinton. My friends Linda Baldwin, Lisa Morris, and Cindy Cox came to visit me. Linda has a blog, Pine Ridge Handwovens, which is on my side bar. Cindy and I met at the Hen, and she and Lisa met on TPP. Lisa and I are friends through TPP too, as well as Linda. They live close together, but about an hour from me. Linda and I live a few miles apart and have been friends for a while. My pictures didn't turn out well, but will show you this one.
This is Lisa and Dasko. You can see Cindys We left my house, went over to Lindas. Linda has a beautiful studio where she weaves. From there on to Clinton. I left them at the Hen, because I had to  go to Debs. This sweet girl is in from Il and I needed to see her.
This was taken Christmas. Tonight all the guys are keeping the home fires burning and we girls are going to Pigeon Forge for the night. We are looking forward to it so much, as girl trips have always been special for us. Amanda, Beth, Deb and Me. I think the guys will be just fine for a couple of days, don't you?lol
The other night, there was nothing on TV so I did a little tweaking.
I couldn't get my mantle going. I am waiting on some fresh bittersweet I ordered, to put on it.I love both of these boxes. My husband got them for me.
This is the German cupboard in the reading nook.
The table in the reading nook
Just a few little changes, but I like them. This is behind the couch and the box is the one I bought on the longest yard sale.
Well thanks for visiting today and I hope you think the changes were for the better, through my back door where life is good.
ps: See this beautiful little girl. This is Mollie, Andrews little sister. I have three beautiful greats. They are a big part of the reason life is good.
Last night she looked across at me and smiled big and said,"mamaw"
It made my life light up! She and I have a few little things we do. I cough and she mocks me. I showed her the chandelier a few days ago and said light. Now when I am holding her, she'll point to a light and say light. Do you think we have bonded?


  1. Oh Betty, Mollie is adorable! What fun you will have with her as she grows : ) Your home is lovely. I also like bittersweet. I planted 5 plants by the back fence, males & females, but no berries yet. I think I saw someplace that it may take a couple years for the berries to show up. We will hopefully be moved far away by then & someone else can enjoy them. I'll buy new plants ... lol! Love the things in your home. It is, as I've said before, very warm & inviting. So glad you were able to spend time with some friends! Blessings, Shirlee

  2. Good morning, Bette. Your tweaks looks wonderful, the DD is always my fave, and what a little doll Mollie is! Enjoy your day!


  3. Your house is so very beautiful! I wish ours could look as good... but we are far from it. It is so peaceful looking and like a family lives there who loves it, as I'm sure they do.
