Potting Shed shutters and new flowers for the shed

read

Well, as you already know from the greenhouse touring post, I buckled down and bought some new flowers for summer. With a freshly pressure washed shed, this thing was ready for blooms!

Blame this one on Bliss Ranch’s AMAZING chairs. And then came I Restore Stuff’s crazy cool carpet. And then there’s Front Porch Mercantile’s decadent bench idea… Oh my goodness.

Flower filled Baycrest antique wagon by the front door

read

When I went to the farmer’s market this past weekend, there was one booth that had this adorable antique wagon.  As soon as I spotted it, I deemed it mine… if they would sell it. Crossing my fingers… SOLD! So today, being so gorgeous out, I was in the mood to do a quick DIY […]
