About Me

My photo
My passion is decorating with vintage and antique finds on a budget. There was a time when I wouldn't have dreamed of going into a goodwill. That day has passed. :) My second love is scrapbooking all those special family moments for posterity, and I recently set up my very own scrapbooking room. I have three beautiful children, two sons and a daughter as well as a sweet (albeit full blooded Yankee) daughter-in-law and two grandgirls. I also enjoy gardening, meeting new friends and relaxing on my patio in the evenings with a glass of fine wine. During the summer of 2001, I spent two glorious weeks at Kennedy Space Center. I've been somewhat of a space geek ever since....

My Garden Redo

I'm linking up with Kim over at Savvy Southern Style for her very first blog party and sharing photos of my newly redone front garden. It was a JUNGLE, I kid you not..... Scroll down to the previous post to see the before pics.... I hired a tiller guy and with the help of my man Johnny, they ripped out the old plants and brought in top soil to build the beds up. The sagos had been planted way too close together so we dug them up and potted them. Doesn't it all look wonderful???? The holly plants will grow to three feet high and three feet wide so we placed them accordingly. Can't wait to see them once they grow a while. Take a glance at those small lights out front..... you'll see the replacements in just a bit.... The angel has been temporarily replaced with this rusty scarecrow that I bought at the Canton Craft Fair a few weeks ago.....
And once that garden got done, the front door looked so very SHABBY.... So we sanded it and painted it a dark mahogany red, scrubbed the tarnished brass handleset shiny once again, and finished it all off with a nice brass kickplate.... Be sure to doubleclick on the pics to enlarge them.... I haven't yet decided what to plant on the right side of the house in front of the kitchen window.... I want something that flowers.... Any ideas or suggestions???

And here are my new lights........ They put out a beautiful glow at night. My sagos are looking a little rough but I'm praying they will make it. I added a nice fall wreath and a grapevine garland to welcome my guests.

Here's a nice night shot................. Isn't the glow lovely? The large picture window on the right has remained shutterless but I'm thinking of having matching shutters built.... Any thoughts on that?

I can't wait to cover those beds with net lighting at Christmas time...........
