GETTING MY GARDEN READY

Flower Pots 002

Good evening;  We finally had a beautiful day today. The sun was out and the air was warm..  So I thought it was a good time to get my garden cleaned and ready for planting...  It was not as bad as I thought it would be, so it looks really great now...   Well I was on a roll now, so I started to get my patio in order and cleaned.  I did some sweeping wiping off the tables and chairs.. I hung up my mosaic mirror  and my candle sconces.  On the mantle of the fire place I have two flower pots  the ones  in the photo above.  I put them on each side of the mirror the colors are so great together. Any way I am going to put some pink geraniums and some ivy. They will look so pretty...   I should be able to plant some flowers in a few more weeks, I am so ready to buy some lovely plants.

I still have lot's of work to do on the patio, but it will be worth it when I am done..  I just hope I get it done before  Winter.. lol

Oh I have to show you all where I finally hung my Pretty Pink and White Quilt that I won in a give a way from Heidi...

I love how it turned out, I have some new pillows that my Sweet MIL bought for me, and they look so pretty on the bed. I don't have a photo of them but I will soon, and show you...  My MIL is just a sweetie...

I redid a ladder back chair and it came out pretty good, I was very pleased with it...

The chair sits by my little kitchen desk, I had some blue toile fabric and some quilt batting and stapled it on.  Folded my blue and white quilt over the back and a sweet pillow my sweet Daughter bought me one year...

101_0480  I just love the saying on this pillow....  So ladies what do you think?????  did I do good........................   So that was my day today,,,  so now after the supper clean up is done and coffee pot is ready for morning, and hubby's lunch is made for work, I am ready to put up my feet and visit some of you sweet ladies...  My dear friends....   Whom I wish to thank for all the kind comments you have been leaving me... I so look forward to reading them.  So keep them coming    OK...   Until next time.   God bless;

Hugs;
