A Change of View!

This is what I woke up to this morning!

It still thrills me to look out at the Blue Ridge Mountains

and see Mt. Pisgah….well unless it’s in the clouds!

Quite a different view than the bright sunshine of Florida!

I always enjoy getting back to our condo, unpacking and getting organized.

So beautiful.

Well, we are heading for a stormy weekend and I am busy putting finishing touches on my Tree House (1/4" scale little house). Tomorrow I'll take pictures and put it in my Etsy Shop. That's what is going on here. (o:

Have a wonderful weekend....

Glad you arrived safely! Gorgeous photos! I have not been to that area in quite a while. I used to hike and camp in the Pisgah National Forest. If I ever move away from Florida, NC is on the top of my list of places to move.

I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Beautiful pictures and reminders of the Blue Ridge Mountains a road we travel twice yearly. Ever changing scenery.

Enjoying al fresco dining this weekend in the Greek area of Toronto.

Oh what a nice mountain view you enjoy there even with the clouds rolling. I'm sure that the cooler temps will appeal to you both.

(Nothing happening in my corner...I'm just visiting and not posting.)

Wow, what a beautiful view you have. I love the mountains.

Nothing much new with me - just the same ol' flooding. :(

Take care,

It's lovely!! I'm not sure how you ever pull yourself away from that view to go to Florida. ( I guess I am more of a mountain person than a beach person. )

Welcome back! Glad you made it safely.

Oh lucky girl!!! I missed that you were headed out to North Carolina! What did you miss, well finally we had rain yesterday and the temperature dropped from 300 to 200 degrees LOL....I am so envious! Have a wonderful time

Welcome home!

Donna said...

Isn't it glorious in the mountains! Oh, I wish I could get away from work and the hustle and bustle for some mountain air! Enjoy, sweetie.

The Blue Ridge Mountains are beautiful, Giveaway!but I get claustrphobic in them. I'm more of a beach baby.

Be sure to stop by Tuesday to enter my One Year Blogiversary!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Now that is definitely a different view from FL. Cooler temps too I bet.

We finally received much needed rain today. It has been raining all over Florida the past few days, and kept missing us by just streets! I think I heard all my bushes and grass drinking!
