Did I Overdo the Red, White, and Blue?

 
Walk into our home in the summertime and it's obvious
that we are patriotic.
 
But the question I sometimes ask myself is, "did I overdo the
 red, white, and blue"?

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

I have this large blue cabinet in our entryway.

So this is a little different treasures and trinkets Tuesday.
 
 

Cloche Encounters of the Bird Kind. . .




Hello my friends,
 
Spring is very unpredictable in Utah.  One day will be warm and sunny and two days later we find ourselves waking up to snow.
 
But one thing that I've noticed is that the birds don't seem to mind.  They remain confident that spring will return.  They know that the snow won't last long and the sun will shine again soon.
 
 
I love walking outside to hear them chirping their merry tunes.

Hangin with my Gnomies. . .

 
 
Hello my friends,
while working in the garden the other day I discovered a mound of moss growing in one of my old milk buckets.
 
I just knew I had to do something with it!
