Roses To Rainbows Turns Ten

Well y'all it has been ten years! Can you believe it? This blog has been a lot of things over the years. It has been a place for me to share my cats, trips and other adventures. It was where I learned I could write fiction (at least to some degree), waxed poetic on occasion, cooked, cleaned and chased clutter six ways from Sunday. I quoted famous people and then told you what they really said.

Last year I started an online store, Rosie B. Designs, and made the announcement here with occasional promotional posts.  The store is where I get to explore the other side of my creativity. It is tough getting a new venture going in such a competitive market, so I would greatly appreciate it if you would stop by and look around. Pictured below is a sample from one of my collections.


As you can see from the rest of the pictures and the past few posts, I have gone off on yet another adventure, gardening. My garden is very small scale, consisting of a few beds and containers. However, we did have green beans and squash a plenty this summer, and some of the best parsley I've ever had.

These are a couple of my sweet snacking peppers and my plant still has lots of peppers on it. They are ready when they have turned orange. Aren't they pretty?



Also, given my love of all things potato, I planted potatoes in buckets. I made the mistake of planting too many taters per bucket and they didn't have enough room to grow, so this is the sum total of my crop. Live and learn, and I'll do better next year...I hope.



In the ground for fall are some beets. It has been so hot with no rain so they may not do well. They have just sprouted and I do keep them watered, so we'll see. I plan to get a bulb of organic garlic to plant next month.


In conclusion, this blog turns ten years old today and has been through a lot of phases and seen a lot of changes. It has also been woefully neglected of late. In fact, I dropped out of the "Chill" writing challenge last January because I was just not inspired. That was a first! I like to write fiction and fun posts for challenges but the topics just didn't work for that. 

So what does the future hold for Roses to Rainbows? That is TBD, but feel free to explore the archives and dig up some oldies but goodies!

The Chill Begins

This is the first day of the 2019 edition of the 20 Days of Chill writing challenge hosted by P. J. at A ‘lil HooHaaPlease join us this month on our writing journey. Today's prompt is Who Are You?

Good morning and welcome! The question of the day is "who are you"? If you are reading this, then you are either participating in the 20 Days of Chill Challenge, or members of the audience.

As for who I am, lets just say I am busy. After winding down the holidays where there were meals to fix, parties to attend, gifts to purchase and decorations to be put up, I am contemplating the joys of returning the house to it's pre-holiday state of normal disarray.

In addition, I started an on-line store called
Rosie B. Designs the first of November, so I have been busy creating new designs and promoting the store, and as of today I have over 200 items listed. If you scroll down to the post prior to this, you can read all about it.

So now it's January and time for the Chill Challenge. We'll see how long I can keep it going. I have several stories that have been hanging in limbo since previous challenges. 

My name is Busy, who are you?

Let's Go Shopping!


Rosie B. Designs opened for business about a month ago, and a week later I announced the Grand Opening here on Roses to Rainbows. Things are percolating along, and I am building my virtual inventory. I say virtual because that is how Zazzle works. I create and upload designs on various products. When potential customers see something they like, they have the option to purchase it as designed, or in most cases, they are able to customize or personalize it as they wish.

There are currently over 100 products available, and I continue to add new ones each day. I've created a Facebook page for my store at RosieBdesigns97. I would really love it if you would LIKE and SHARE this page with your friends or readers. There is a "shop now" button that takes you right to the store for convenience, or you can go directly at Rosie B. Designs.

Typically, I feel awkward about asking for favors, but if you could go to the store and click on some of the items, that would generate views which will help me a lot. If you want to BUY something, that would be great too. 

Zazzle is constantly running sales and promotions, and with Christmas just around the corner, now is a great time to shop for unique gifts for family and friends. You can find something for everyone at Rosie B. Designs. Products include clothing, Christmas cards and ornaments, notebooks, mugs, tote bags and more. Oh, and of course, a lot of cat-theme products, as you would expect from a shop named after my cat. 

I look forward to seeing you here and at Rosie B. Designs. Thanks and Happy Shopping!!
