fun things about being in a new home aside from new spaces to decorate, of course, are some really pretty perennials growing in the berm and the borders.
Adorable petite daisies. Anyone know the name of these?
petite daisies in a hob nail vase, and added a few Shasta daisies.
There are clumps of daisies planted every where. In the borders, and in the berms.... daisies.
Another nice find, is the wooden basket.
I found it in a box of stuff that I was organizing and putting away.
Like Christmas in July!! Even though we've had it for a few years, it's been packed away.
Nice to have it out, and be able to use it again.
Geraniums are flourishing in the old wheelbarrow.
We bought this old wheelbarrow a few summers ago at a yard sale. I've never regretted it!
I still love that old wheelbarrow, and I've placed it on a landing
by the front porch steps.
Perfect colors for summer, and July.
On the front porch glider, new pillows.
As I was looking through my fabric stash for fabric to sew curtains for our youngest son's office and kitchen, I found these fabrics.
No wonder I bought them. They are so darling, and I still love these colors and patterns!
A bit of time at the sewing machine, and I had 3 new 20'x 20' pillows for the front porch.
~ I hope to take inventory of my canning supplies, and get my canning jars all washed and ready to fill.
~I want to finish the second guest bath paint job. Just need to add trim, and paint a little bit more.
~Put a couple of batches of turkey jerky in the food dehydrator.
*** Edited to add.... so far, the deer spray IS WORKING... Yay!!
Attitude of gratitude:
~I'm grateful for morning walks : time to ponder, and prepare myself for the day.
~I'm grateful that I have learned a few skills in my days that can be a blessing to my family.
Sewing curtains for Spencer, cooking meals, and baking, canning and putting food up.
I truly enjoy making a comfortable and welcoming home for my family. A place of respite from the world and a place to feel peace, and feel of our Heavenly Fathers spirit. It's important to me, and I'm grateful that I have the desire to be a girl that loves her home and wants to make it the best place in the world for her family to be.
