:: Happy Weekend


Happy Weekend!

A quick snap of my Birthday flowers before they fade. A beautiful gift from my family...flowers & a spa package. All in all a much better birthday than last years funeral & a move. I'm ready to spend the weekend relaxing with my family and celebrating another blessed year.

How about you, how will you spend your weekend?

:: potting nook


I'm several years behind in sharing this little potting nook that I created at my former home. It was in the perfect spot, right outside of the garage and under a shade tree. I could just back right up to it & unload my farmer's market treasures. I loved that little desk/potting bench it was so convenient and it added much needed life & charm to it's location. 

I found the vintage desk at a local antique store for ten dollars. I was instantly attracted to it's color. The fact that it was already shabby & rusty made it perfect for outdoor use. Everything else I simply had lying around the house already. All I had to do was add some pretties like the caladiums & geraniums. I sure miss this little space, but in time I'll create a cute little potting area at our new home as well. For now this one will live on in my memories and here on my blog.



This old Windsor style chair had been with me since my first apartment ha ha,
years of sitting outside gave it a nice chippy & worn patina perfect for this spot. 






Hope you enjoyed my little potting nook, I really miss that cute little space under the trees. 

Do you have a potting nook, shed, or table? I would love to see...leave me a link :).

Happy Gardening!

love the little green chalkboard signs the Farlow Farm of Archdale used, they had the best farm stand display, barn wood & rusty tin perfection.

Close ups of a wonderful day spent at the Greensboro Farmer's Market. I mistakenly left all of my other lenses at home so macro photos it was. I'm more than a little behind in sharing these photos from a surprise visit to my Mom for mother's day at the Greensboro Farmer's Market. You can find her at Still Hollow Farm selling her vegetable plants, jellies, jams, jewelry, gourd art, and any other crafty thing that catches her fancy....she's such and inspiration to me.

:: marjoram




Marjoram bundles...they smell amazing, 
and by snipping off a few ends I'm hoping for fuller growth.

I'm so happy to have something growing again.

YAY SPRING!

:: my favorite rug pad



Since moving into our new home, rugs & rug pads have become very important....
especially good ones that do what they are supposed to & actually hold a rug in place. 
With wood floors in nearly every room in the house minus two baths, plus two very energetic dalmatians who think it's their job to ruffle my rugs {especially this round woven rug at the bottom of our stairs}. Cooper {our big puppy} loves to leap from the third step landing on the rug & sliding it across the floor into a heap.....he seriously thinks it's his job {it makes him so happy}....for me it was more than a little irritating & a pain to constantly fix....

UNTIL NOW....

with my new super duper RUG PAD {what what}

This new rug pad keeps my rug perfectly in place & it doesn't budge.

I LOVE IT...it's true, i'm in love with a rug pad.

I've tried several rug pads in the past and this one is by far my favorite & it works better than any other I've ever tried, especially those cheap ones that look like shelf liners sold in most stores.

This rug is for use on multiple surfaces even carpet, one side is smooth & a little tacky, and the other is rough a little like velcro & it grabs the rug & holds on tight. It's nice and thin so it doesn't leave the tale tale pad line under your rugs. I have a couple of the heavy duty ones & while they work okay, they show under the rug because of the thickness....not too pretty.

Now, I cannot attest to the way this works on carpets because I have none, but I'm willing to guess that it probably does just what it says & works on every surface perfectly.

I'm so glad to have found this rug pad

It's DALMATIAN tested & MOM approved.


You can check it out HERE.


The opinions I am sharing are entirely my own based on my own experience. I am receiving no compensation for sharing these opinions ( though some free rug pads would be nice ; ).
