My friend Connie has the most beautiful flower gardens in Tennessee and I want her to share some of her secrets with me this year. I've got my eye on a couple spots for some new beds. If I get down there this year, I'll take pictures to share with you. She has done a beautiful job! I'd also like to put in a SMALL veggie garden that the grandkids can be a part of.
I've got so many projects that I would like to finish up and start today. I want to get a lot of things into the shop before our Ladies Night Out on May 8. I'm hoping Terri is sewing her little fingers away too. That should be such a fun night!
Got a few more oldies in to share with you... Look at this BIG old box! I could just see that either on a porch or in a garden. It has some old advertising on the side. $29.95
OLD, rusty scale (the dial part has rust) would be adorable in a summer room with flowers. $29.95
Primitive garden bench. Don't you love the lines of this one? (Very sturdy) $90.00
Another cutie lamp. This one is a khacki color metal with the glass globe. Sorry, can't remember the price. Lots of handmade pinwheels - $4.95
Debbie and I ended up "marrying" the old farm table and two door cupboard into a desk. Isn't it adorable??? Love it with the ladderback chair. The cupboard is $95.00, the farm table is 20% off $120
That's it for the weekend goodies, but hope to have more for tomorrow. I'm going to work on some new stitcheries that I think you will love. Connie gave me the idea (thank you my friend) and they are so prim and wonderful. Dick and I picked up some great old barnwood this weekend and I want to do some signs on that too. (Along with making a couple dolls and doing housework!) Seems like it never ends, but it's always so much fun to see the finished products.
Our Abbey spent the night last night and she is home with me this morning with a sore throat. Remember being able to stay home from school with your pillow and blankie on the couch? It was always so comforting. (I'd like one of those days!)
Just got the best news! I am going to Fort Wayne to the market next month and I am going to meet Lori (The Olde Primitive House) there. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the lights she does and she is such a nice gal, can't wait to meet in person!
Also, thanks to all of you who left such nice comments about our home tour. I hope to have Part Two soon.
Enjoy the rainy day and we'll talk again soon...
