Can you believe it's already July?
It seems like just yesterday it was the first day of Spring.
It's been sooooooo HOT here!
I spent the day working outside. Picking, pulling, pruning and planting.
I wanted to spruce up my front porch area so I got crafty...... and..... with no money.... very creative.
I made a "Welcome" sign from an old piece of fence.
I painted it and wired on some old medicine bottles to serve as bud vases.
I've had an old ice cream parlor chair in my basement for years. I decied to paint it black... then added the mosaic tile seat.
I turned one of those pots you use to conceal your water hose into a flower pot.
It was perfect. It's huge and already has drain holes.
I found the cutest vintage garden statues at my local flea market.
A little boy & girl and three different cherub statues!
Who doesn't love cherubs!
My husband made me the cutest little "garden cart"!
He used some scrap wood, a wheel salvaged from a broken wheel barrel and an old Pepsi crate.
I painted it and am going to sit a pot of flowers in it.
I ran out of steam so that's for another day.
Sadly this Spring we lost one of our big trees.
We haven't had the stump removed yet..... so, I decorated it!
At least it will look good in the meantime.
Hope everyone had a wonderful
4th of July!
