In the Garden

WE HAVE SUNSHINE!!!! Do I sound excited, or what??? Well, I guess you could say I am. After all this rain we’ve been having-it sure is nice to see that golden globe shining bright, and putting a smile on everyone’s face! I spent the morning in my working in my office………. But this afternoon I…

Pretty in Pink!

Last night I was out watering in the gardens, when this pretty little peony caught my eye. It was the first one whose petals were actually opening, and I just couldn’t resist bringing it inside. By this morning it was in FULL bloom! I have light pink and white peonies as well, but the fuchsia…

Treasures in the Garden 2

The last few nights have been so beautiful, that I’ve been spending them in the gardens, and re-purposing a few of the treasures I recently found. When I was digging out the antique dresser from the old house on our family farm (you can read all about that-here), I found some other treasures that I…

Treasures in the Garden

Hello everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day! Hubby spent most of the day working on his toys (Trans-am and Jeep),  to get them ready for some summer fun. I, on the other hand, could be found in the gardens-pulling weeds!!!!  (Funny how those nasty little buggers catch up with you if…

Junk Garden

Hello everyone-I’m back!!!!  Our vacation to Oregon was wonderful, and I will have many photo’s to share once I have edited them!! Coming back from vacation was easy this year, all thanks to my mom!  I can’t thank her enough for picking up the house, doing laundry, and watering all my herbs and plants!!!  Love…

Flowers, Fun and Family!

Happy Thursday! We are still on the coast soaking up the sun and checking out all the sights, but I thought while I had a few minutes to spare, I’d pop in for a quick post! The flowers in my garden were just starting to bloom, prior to leaving for Oregon last Sunday.  I couldn’t…

DIY- Fold up Garden Table

You will not believe what has happened!!  I still can’t believe it-but it’s true!  Hubby threw me out of the garage!!!  Yes, you heard me right. All my ‘stuff’ has been vacated, just so hubby can have his man space!  Have you ever heard of anything so horrific! It wouldn’t have been a problem, really. …

Spring Has Sprung!

My early daffodils have finally bloomed! Since the dining room is in re-do mode-(aka a complete MESS)…. I couldn’t resist picking a few to brighten up the kitchen. I also planted a few of my ‘bargain’ herbs from Home Depot this morning. The kitchen smells amazing!!! I saved this old shelf from certain death-when I…

Spring Cleaning-OUTSIDE!

Whew!  I thought getting the inside of the house in order was hard-but it was nowhere near as hard as the outside has been this last week!  After hours of raking, picking up sticks, clearing brush and gaining a few blisters, hubby and I finally finished last night! It’s a good thing too-because these little…

Is it Spring yet?

As hubby and I were sipping our first cup of coffee this morning, our local weatherman declared that we were under another winter warning advisory.  “Chance of snow and freezing rain,” he said.  “With winds gusting up to 40 miles an hour.” “UGH!”  That was my response to this dreaded forecast.  Hubby, on the other…
