Everything Done Wright!

Hello my friends,
on Saturday I attended the "Hidden Garden" tour with three of my friends.
It was not one of their best years, but the Wright garden did everything right in my book!  :)

A redo and a Patriotic thing, or two. . .

Hello my friends,
I have this large blue cabinet in our entryway.
The inside of it is brown stain.
I have been thinking for some time that I would like to paint it white.  Problem is. . .once I do there was no going back.
This photo was taken in '2012', when I shared
It's a bit blurry, but it's all I could find.

Oh What Do You Do in the Summertime?

Hello my friends,
In about a week and a half summer will officially be here.
Of course those little wheels in my mind are turning.  :)
I am such a theme girl when it comes to my seasonal décor
I just gotta ask, "what do you do in the summertime"?

Better Late Than Never. . .Features

Hello my friends,
It seems like once spring arrived life has been crazy busy around here!  Between readying the garden and doing lots of prep for our final estate sale of my friends late Aunt Bunny I am just now finding time to share some features from Our April and May Garden Parties and the Tea and Roses link party I joined with 11 other gals.
At our April Garden Party Daphne from
Ivy, Phyllis, and Me shared the gorgeous garden blooms from her previous home.
I absolutely love these sweet bottles and blossoms shared by Debra from
I love garden goodies, (junk) and Pat from French Country Style from the Foot of the Rockies shared the architectural salvage in
 her garden.
I also love a garden that has fun outdoor spaces. 
In our May Garden Party Mary from
Home is Where the Boat is shared the gorgeous flowers blooming around her cute garden shed.
Jackie from Purple Chocolat Home shared her
romantic garden gazebo.
When I visited Magnolia, the Garden shop was my favorite.  Judith from Botanic Bleu shared a great post about it.
At the Tea and Roses party
Bernideens Tea Time shared her pretty tea in the garden and darling new tea pot.
Marie from Interior Frugalista shared her whimsical teapot wind chime.
This succulent planter is so creative shared by Laurie from
Shortbread cookies are one of my favorites.

I am looking forward to our next garden party on June 29th.
