I finally did it. I bought some wicker for our front porch..and..I also bought some extra large chair pads to make them ultra comfortable. Guess where T and I will be on a summers evening..sipping ice tea?
(In front of the TV watching the evening news and then straight to the computers or to read...curled up in air conditioning ...all cool.) Smile...you betcha!
Do you see that large blank wall area on the left of the chair? Well, my new house number is going to go there. Penny at Lavendar Hill Studio is making one for me and I can't wait!! It's going to look beautiful!
This is a plain little track home..but it has been well cared for and when I am through it will be the sweetest little cottage I can possibly make it.
I have lots of flowers, roses and vines planted..and when the two redwoods get bigger in a couple of years..
It is going to be something to slow a bit for when they drive down the street. Can you see those little scrawny trees way over there..lean in and look real hard! That's ok, I can hardly see them either!
I planted Potato Vines, two of them, and three rose bushes. I thought the Potato Vines were white..turns out they are yellow. I was SO pleased when I saw their blooms!
I love, love, love ferns!
I decided to hang
one of those cute wicker baskets onto the mail box. I also painted a clothes pin white to match..but..it disappears..so today..out comes the white spray paint!
I love bunnies and this one is over two feet high I think. A gift from my daughter. The flowers are hiding him...I must get out and clip them out of his poor little eyes.
It is cozy..and comfortable..and isn't that what it is all about?
Have a beautiful, anything but blue, Monday! Except if it is blue and white china...or something like that...and if that is your "Blue Monday" I will be over to visit you! Love that blue and white!!
Love and smiles~
P.S. I just wanted to add this. Have you ever decided you wanted to get a new post out and the hour is late because you have been visiting..and looking..and composing, and suddenly it is some hidious hour? I did this last night. I have had this post on hold for days and wanted to just get it out there...however...then I began to notice all sorts of errors. So..in spite of the hour, I started correcting them. Then I added a couple more pictures. TOO much so I deleted them. NOT enough so I added..and finally said a bad word. Wrote my closure and turned this confounded machine off and stomped off to bed! However, last night I REFUSED to get out of bed and take one last look. SOME postscript! At least I am not deleting the whole like I used to do...constantly!
