Hello and Welcome Friends
It’s so good to have you here. Ya know… during this pandemic we can have moments where we can feel free of the control that this virus may have on us. Yea, some may say it doesn’t control them or that it never will but to some extent it kind of does. So… when I set forth and leave the doors of this house and seek beauty of any kind that comes my way… I feel free from “It’s Control!”
Daisies always bring good cheer!
And so do bouquets from our gardens.
Our gardens here were purposely planted to be cutting gardens for lovely bouquets. We enjoy each and every bouquet that comes into this home or front porch!
It’s been a fun week as Sweet man built a potting bench for our back patio. And I got to paint it. Plus the darker color part of the bench, the actual table part, is from a local famous barn here in our town! They were getting rid of some ordinary doors and Sweet Man utilized part of the ordinary barn door in this bench!
I painted it …as this natural color did not work for our patio vision.
So here it is now… all painted and styled!
I shopped the house, garage and carport. Nothing is new in the above picture except the pillows on the chairs. (Walmart buys!)
Oh, and the story behind that straw basket tray is too funny! It was sitting out in the garage with my gardening gloves etc. for about two years. Listen to this…
We came home with the basket after an Adventure. Sweet Man pulled over at a Roadside Produce Stand. He started choosing what produce he wanted to buy. Next thing we know… an older lady in a bikini, that was not shy, started helping him with his produce. Oh, and she had a cigarette hanging out of her mouth. Get the picture? She was a vision! But as sweet as pie! She liked this man at her produce stand! She had this little straw basket and really thought he should have it. And started loading it up with tomatoes. But just as fast as she came… she went… running towards her house. She forgot about the eggs she was frying in a pan on her grill. All of a sudden she started swearing up a storm at the eggs. I thought she was going to throw the eggs at her house! Oh, what we see on our back road adventures… no matter what state we are in! So… as I placed that basket up on top of our new Potting bench … I had a good laugh about that day!
How about those green glasses? Those were my Mom and Dads. I remember drinking from them when I was young. Pretty cool! Right?
And what’s really neat is that this potters bench is covered from the 4 ft. eaves of the house. Rain can’t really hurt it.
I love it! I’ll have fun with this! Just you wait and see!
And because of the Potters Bench… we decided to move the wicker to a new area.
As you can see… we did not let this Pandemic take the joy out of are backyard fun. It’s good to be surrounded by beauty.
I hope your week was good. I hope you were surrounded with moments of joy. And most of all… I’m glad you came back here for a visit. Thank you!
