What Do You Think?
I am getting the gazebo ready for the summer picnics. I hung the fern baskets & hung the chicken crate my son Atlee & my mother bought me last fall. What do you think? Should it stay after stained & the basket inside be filled with flowers? Or is it just to much?
The pond is cleaned & waits for water plants. All seven little gold nuggets survived another winter. Just feeder fish that have grown very large & dodged many cats.
I looked for pillows to use in the room I am giving a makeover. I wanted Heirloom Weaver pillows but the colors I wanted were not being made. I bought their napkins at the shop I sell in & decided I could make them into pillows.
I pinned the napkins right sides together & sewed around three sides.
Two reversible pillow covers for the makeover in Sams old room. I do not do zippers so I think I will pickup some velcro next trip to Walmart. I have two duck pillows to a comforter set from when the boys were little & shared a room that I will put inside once I fins them.
I went shopping for a small tent in hopes of the grands staying over night with grandma this summer. I was looking for a small one much like the one my kids had long ago. It fit in the living room & we watched movies together as they camped out & fell asleep. To my surprise this tent was much bigger & took up all the living room floor space after the table was taken out. New plan was decided at that point. The tent will be set up inside the gazebo. I had a little dog very interested in the tent while putting it together & when the door was in his sight. After going in he did not want to come out so I put a sheet down & his bed inside. I guess he thought it was for him. Soon Sam was in there & they both went to sleep. Two birds with one stone. Sam will enjoy the tent to.
Blessings Til Next Time!
