Potting Summer Plants

I'm not the best with plants. I kinda forget to water them...BUT I think I'm getting better.  It just takes a little discipline and love.  I was getting sick of our deck being bland, so I went to Lowes and bought up some flowers.  It was really fun to get my hands dirty.

So I took these...

Creative Spaces

It's time for a little decor inspiration. It's always fun to get fresh ideas. I love changing things up and rearranging here and there. Maybe these will give you some ideas too.

Hope you have a great Monday.

Hand Made Deck Chairs

We were recently surprised with two brand new clean, crisp, beautiful deck chairs.  Our friends, Lyon and Sarah made them for us out of the goodness of their hearts. Talk about a gift of love.  I couldn't believe how pretty they were!

We took a few photos for their family and they built us chairs!  I'd say we got the better end of that deal!  Thanks soooooo much you guys!  I still can't believe you made these!

My Mother in law gave me two beautiful hanging baskets too. They make the deck so much cheerier.

Here are a few pics of what our sad deck looked like and what it's starting to look like now.  I still want to plant a few more potted flowers and herbs, but it is WAY better than before!

Have a great Wednesday.

What A Dandy!

I love dandelions.

We were taking a little drive Sunday after church and I spotted this HUGE dandelion on the side of the road.  I've never seen one like it!  So Justin stopped, put the car in reverse and let me climb the small hill to pick my weed.

I've always liked dandelions...even though they're a weed.  I'd like to know something...who labeled weeds weeds?  Why are such cute little dainty things called WEEDS?  If they were called a flower, everyone would love them.   I mean what's so wrong with having cute little yellow flowers in your lawn anyway?

That's my random rant for the day.  Anyway, I just had to share these pics Justin took of my BIG little "weed".

Have you ever seen one so big!!  It was so much fun.

Have a great Tuesday.
