Some Photos To Share

Good morning everyone!

Well, I have been doing a little Spring/Summer tweaking around here.

Can’t really do much inside because of the construction and the piles of tools and wood sitting around.

But I was able to do some decorating on my porch.

I want to change my porch decor.

It has looked basically the same for years!

And I want a change.

But I cant figure out what to do.

Plus without buying new furniture, it is kind of hard to make it look much different.

I did put out my Summer pillows and chair covers.

Plus JoAnn’s had their geraniums on sale again!

Which I had last year but made the mistake of storing them in a trash bag, hanging from a peg in the garage….

And can you guess what happened to them???

Yep, my Hubby took them out as TRASH!!

I mean, come on…. Who hangs trash from a peg???

He said I thought you didn't want to sit it on the ground.

????

Why exactly would I not want to sit a bag of trash on the ground in the garage or better yet…

Why wouldn't I have put in the garbage can if it was trash???

Oh well, it happened so I had to buy more.

And right now they have them marked down 60% off.

I also got a berry wreath for my front door on sale there too.

Originally $30 now on sale for $7.00.

Isn’t it pretty!

My only complaint is….

The berries don't show up from a distance.

You have to be up on the porch before you notice them.

From the road it just looks like a heart wreath.

Here are a few more porch pictures.

Don’t these look so real??

And they hold up really well outside.

They hardly fade at all, even in the direct sunlight.

I have this obsession with sticking things out side in the bushes.

Most of them are garden ornaments.

Including this new one I got at the Gypsy Caravan last month.

But I also added this little wooden Sam that originally sat on the porch.

Now I know he wont last more than a season or so out here.

But I think he looks cute.

I also did a tiny bit of tweaking in here.

You may have noticed, I moved my quilted table topper from Kerri, into here.

I also changed the towels out on my drying rack.

I took down the red towels and replaced them with brown and mustard.

Plus I moved Kerri’s pocket towel up to the center.

I like it much better this way.

That’s it from me for the day.

Until Next Time….

Swap Goodies From Kerri

A Primitive Place ~Tammy

Yay! I finally have something exciting to post about!!

Heehee!

Look what came in today's mail….

My swap package from Kerri of The Calico Rabbit.

Oh my gosh, Kerri!!

I love everything!

Kerri sent me a wonderful stitchery pillow cupboard tuck.

I was so thrilled to see this!

I won a Halloween design pillow from her last year and I hated when the season was over and I had to put it away.

Now I have one I can leave out all year long!

This is displayed in my living room.

Please try ignore any dust you may see.

We have construction going on and I try to keep it cleaned up but I'm quickly loosing the battle. ;)

You may also notice the wonderful hooked rug hanging from the back of my chair.

That was also a blog win from a while back.

And it was from Lauren of Rugs and Pugs.

I absolutely adore hooked rugs and stitchery’s!

And of course, they have to be two things I can’t seem to master myself. LOL!
