Spring anyone?

We have been pretty busy around here!!!
Now that Easter has passed and it really IS officially spring,
Tammy and I have been planting so many
wonderful things!
Herbs, ferns, flowers and succulents.

Yesterday the deck was freshened up by new outdoor carpet
until we can get the floor replaced.
What a difference it has made!
New cushions on the chairs make it even better.

You have to plant and pot things here in Georgia
while temperatures are mild because
in about a month it will be pretty hot and steamy!

I just wanted to share a few photos of our beautiful deck!

Dill and basil ~

A beautiful arrangement of potted flowers Tammy put together!

Mint and more flowers.

I love ferns so we have them sprinkled all over.

Rosemary, parsley, oregano and thyme.

Asparagus ferns mixed with sedum. Flower plantings and a fox tail fern!


Another gorgeous flower arrangement potted by sweet Tammy.
She does have the touch having been in the floral business for 40 years or so!

A small bed that we planted foxgloves and other flowers.
The plant in front of St. Francis is catnip!

I've hung a handmade wreath on our front screened door,
complete with fake greenery and fake bird's nest.
WELL a little sparrow thought it looked like home
and built her nest right beside the fake one!
We have five little eggs too!!!

Well, I hope you enjoyed my little tour around the deck
and that spring has arrived for you as well!

We had better enjoy it this next month before the temps rise!

Thank you so much for stopping by to see what I'm up too,
Hugs and love,

Making my way back to the studio!

Now that our yard sale is over (and thank goodness for that!!!)
and some of our spring planting is finished,
I finally feel like I can get back to the studio!!!

Tammy was working on a few projects and noticed the beautiful
sunshine, sky and trees through our studio window.
I had to take a pic to share with you!!!!

The curtains are antique and sheer.
We have a string of pretty pearl garland draped on the rod as well.
The weird spiral thing you see is and old
store rack that I love.
I need to put all of my favorite antique baby dresses on it
but haven't gotten around to it quite yet!

And that's a dress form that I've pinned tons of stuff to.
I love looking at pretty things in the studio!!!

And our newest addition to the studio:
WONDERFUL task lighting so us ol' girls can see what we are doing!!!
I just love them. And our poor eyes needed them!

I'm trying my hand at button jewelry!
I've been wanting to do this forever and it seems like the perfect time
to give it a go!!!

So stay tuned sweet friends!
Hopefully I'll have some pretty pieces to put in my Etsy store soon.

Thank you always for visiting me here,
I cherish you all!!!

Hugs and love,

Spring is here in Georgia and I love it!!!!

Isn't it so wonderful how the spring of the year feels like a beautiful renewal???
We moved to our new home in the fall and
as it was pretty with all of the fall colors but
things changed fast with all the leaves falling
and the cold weather approaching.

I haven't shared this before but we have moved in with 40 year old friends and
are now sharing their home and ALL of the expenses!!!
They too are empty nesters and invited us to share their home with them.

They lost their youngest son (one year older than our Noah) in a tragic car accident
four years ago and the older daughters have moved away.
They have a huge home with an in-law suite that they occupy and offered
us the rest of the house as our own.

I met these precious souls, James and Tammy at my first day at art college.
Long story short, they fell in love...
Dennis and I fell in love and married a year before they married and
I was pregnant with our first son Brent at their wedding!

Dennis and I were the best man and matron of honor at their wedding.
And we've been friends for soooo many years now!
Dennis and James went to school together and were even co-workers too.

Oh, and they are both true artists!!!
And now, in our new home we have a gorgeous studio!!!!
Perfect for all creatives and of course I brought all of my supplies!!!

Anyway that is the backstory.
It has been a beautiful thing for us.
We have dinners together, laugh and reminisce then we all
retire to our separate living spaces to watch a little TV before bed.

So now to making things beautiful!!!!!
Our sweet deck is in dire need of new floor boards
so understand they'll be replaced soon.
But I couldn't help but do some spring planting today!



Just a random found nest that I placed a river rock inside...that kind of looks like an egg!

And one more ~

A few asparagus ferns with sedum in between!

A little rosemary ~

And chives!

The ferns have been planted and are ready for the front porch too ~

Different varieties of sedum have been planted in the old birdbath too!
Yes, it's rachet, and has been broken but glued back together.
I think that's why we love it so much!

Happy Spring precious friends!!!
Thank you always for following me and my journey through life.

Hugs and love,
