I think we've all heard the saying "Everyone has a "Guardian Angel watching over them". Well, I do know that there have been too many times during my lifetime when something tragic happened in which the end should have resulted in my not being alive today. Since these incidents I have experienced were extremely frightening, I think it might be best not to post the details. Just the memories of them make me wonder... "who is MY Guardian Angel"... because I KNOW I have one!

As I was taking pictures of my "Pink Fairy Cottage" today, I was thrilled that it wasn't raining for the millionth day in a row and the tiny pink roses were actually blooming on top of the roof. Getting pictures of the roses in bloom each summer is quite the challenge, as the window of opportunity is most often very short. Usually the roses bloom for a few days while it is pouring "cats and dogs". By the time the rain stops all the petals are on the ground and I have a beautiful "green" veil covering the house with no pink fairy roses.

Today was my big chance! I walked up to the cottage to straighten up the little sign I have there which I painted years ago which reads "Angels Garden Here". I loved it so much I could never sell it, so now it adorns the outside of the "cottage".

Once I had a couple of pics that I thought "might" be o.k., I came inside, downloaded the photos and continued on with my day which consisted of adding new treasures to my websites. While I was working I noticed there was actually a "theme" happening today. It seemed as though all of my newest treasures were adorned with Cherubs, Angels, or both. What an inspiration as I worked through the day and the sun finally came bursting through the 8 days of rain clouds! I guess my "Guardian Angel" was answering my prayers today.

I thought you might enjoy taking a look.

First and foremost, as always
Pink Fairy Cottage in all her Pink Rose Glory~!

I believe in guardian angels or actually I know there are angels watching over us. I've been in too many situations that have proved it, sugar! Yes, you are blessed by angels and our Heavenly Father.......

I LOVE the cottage blooming roses on the top of the Pink Cottage, sweetpea.
