The Shed

Image
Okay so lately I have been thinking about the BLANK canvas that is the side of my shed! LOL The bush is going and a garden will be going in right there on the side. But to give the garden a back drop of something more than just the shed wall..... I acted on a wild hair yesterday evening....
What do you think? I am thinking that the front where the doors are will need some colorful loving also!

The Finished Lamp on the Deck

Image
Around the first of Feb. I posted these first two pics of the before and after lamp. The iron base came from my brother who found it somewhere. After years of not doing anything with it I decided to ask for it. The light part sitting on top is a solar light I pulled from outside just to get a thought of what I wanted to do. Took it to Chris' garage to get started on it. Sanded a lot of the rust off. Primed it with spray primer. Black paint.... and some thought on the wiring (thanks Chris) and here it is finished.
Saturday I finally loaded it in the truck and off to my house I went. Love it on my deck. I just fell in love with this iron piece. I did of course use a electric lamp on top instead of a solar. Would not have been able to put on the deck if I used solar, my Ceape Mrytle bush would have blocked all the light.
Planning on getting the rest of the furniture out of the shed this evening and enjoy my deck... and lamp tonight! Thanks for stopping in,

Outdoor Table

Image
Yesterday I was on a roll throwing together fast and simple projects.
A friend of my moms had given me this iron base, I think it was meant to be a plant stand.....
But with a piece of tile....


The stand..,.

And my super special E6000 glue ....


I now have a cute table to sit outside.. Planning on placing a birdhouse on it In the garden...

Cute Little Birdbath for my Yard

Image
Cleaning the craft room today I ran across some items that had my mind racing....
A lamp base. Was black but I had painted it brown.
Given to me by my daughter.

A glass lamp globe picked up at Goodwill for $1.99

And my special glue... E6000 and look here, I have a cute birdbath for the garden.

Can't wait to get the garden ready  and place this in the center.

Purple Clover and My Yard

Image
Grass at work has not had its first cutting for the year yet. I noticed the clover on the side of the parking lot....yep, out I jumped to snap these two pics! Love this get down on the ground view!
Hosta is peeking out more and more each day.
The story of this hosta is....The woman who used to watch my kids, Pat, gave me a bunch of this from her yard. I had it planted at my old home and dug some up to bring with me when I moved to this house 23 years ago. I have divided it many times to put more around the yard and to give away. The side of the shed. Through the years this area has had a few different looks. Timbers and flowerbeds, bushes (one still standing)....and other looks.... But I have plans for it this yr. First hint, the bush is being moved!!
The old oak tree! LOL....actually not that old, I planted it a few yrs after  moved in. I find it funny that it does not lose it's leaves in the fall, they turn brown and leave in the spring. Took this Wed. night, planning on …

Image

Saturday Evening Fun

Image
Bowling with Chris, his long time buds, Neal and Tracy,
Tracy's wife Nelta and Neal's girlfriend Jennifer.

Guys bowled together and us women bowled together.
Nelta is a great bowler, beat Jennifer and I all three games.
I pretty much bowl for fun...lol...
103, 107 and last game was 125!

After bowling we stopped by Tracy and Nelta's house for a bon fire. Lots of down trees and limbs over the winter. Great night to set out and watch the fire.








Course you know me....cell phone camera in hand! LOL... Great evening out with friends. Thanks for stopping by, Pam

Dakota

Image
Just posting a pic of Dakota since I have not blogged about him in a very long time. This was last night, snoozing after a day at Granny's! Tired and worn out from playing with the girls.....Molly, Red, Cheyenne and Chole. I have to laugh at him sometimes, he is so funny but he is my best friend, my bud and I love him so much. Thanks for stopping, Pam

Spring/Summer Door Decoration

Image
Just when I was so over the winter weather, we were blessed with some pretty weather Monday and Tuesday, only to turn out cool again today....
But I have been thinking a Spring/Summer door decoration to help welcome the season in. So I decided to get busy........
Pulled out some needed supplies for the project.

Now these flowers will look so pretty on my red door... They will pop.

But what sort of container to use...... how about something like I saw on PINTEREST!
An old fashion grater!



And in a matter of minutes I have my decoration....


I love it.

My Yard 2015 - The Beginning

Image
Getting the yard prepared for SPRING...
This is two carpenter bee traps, ready and waiting for the bees to appear.

And two more on the other side. I am so ready to take these bee's on!

For twenty years these bee's have  drilled up in the bottom of my shed, one day I am going to step up in there and fall through! What a sight that would be.
Now to the plants. This is some of my  Hosta poking its head out from  under the dirt and dried leaves I use to cover them each year.


Iris.

In the front yard around the mailbox... not really sure what this is. Planted these bulbs years ago. When the flowerbed was larger they fell with in the rocks.


And my House Leeks.. this is my dark pink/ purple color.

I also have a rusted red one coming up.
And this I think is my  Trillum


Now to show you some of the cute things I have gotten for the yard.
