Wow.. can you tell that our weather has improved?  I spent ALLL DAAAY outside yesterday.. it was WONDERFUL~!!  The sun,  oh how I’ve missed the sun.. AND, its shining again today!!!!  Its supposed to get close to 90 in Seattle today.. WOW!  It will probably only be in the high 70’s up here, but I’m thankful for it!

  My adventure off the Island the other day was just that.. it was raining, pouring down rain actually.. so I was in and out of every place very quickly!   I did find a big square of fabric that could possible lead to a Mistreatment for my living room windows… Hmm.. just gotta find the right fabric to go with it.. The hunt is on!! I paid 2.99 for it.


I also found this cute little lamp.. for 1.99!

lamp  Here is the top.. it’s an electric candle.  It had a really ugly sleeve around it, so I fixed that with everyone’s favorite thing.. Scrapbook Paper!  Funny how I have a lot of it, yet, I don’t scrapbook!

lampHere’s where it’s living right now.. I may change that.. but it looks great on my Antique Sewing Machine.

  I got TONS of flowers!!  They had 4 packs of Annuals for 1.00.  I got Begonias, Petunias, Marigolds, and a few other things that were new to me.. I spent yesterday planting and will finish up today.. gotta be out in that sunshine!  I will take some pictures when I get done.  I have 2 baskets that I need to get the coconut fiber fillers for.. and I want to hang them on Sheperd’s Hooks in the front yard.  I need to get those too.  I will do a little at a time.  I need to get some fertilizer.  The best thing I’ve found to use up here is a 16-16-16 Multipurpose Fertilizer.  I used it in Port Orchard when we lived there and my Petunias grew into BUSHES!  I’m just hoping for a lot of color!!  My neighbors were looking at me like I was crazy.. most people don’t do much with their yards in housing.. I always feel that where ever we live, it’s home, and I treat it that way~!!

    I’m off to bathe the doggies.. they are shedding like crazy!  Then heading out to plant!  I will update with pictures when I’m finished!

Have a Happy Friday!!!!

  1. Hi! I’m glad to hear that you had a great trip. I’m looking forward to seeing your flower pictures. I love to see how other people garden. And nice job on your electric candle. Scrapbook paper is a wonderful thing. I don’t scrapbook either and I never realized how much you could do with it until I started blogging.

  2. Hello my dear sweet friend!
    I too am in heaven with the sunshine and warm weather, I have been outside since 7 am! YEA!!!!!
    The electric candle is really pretty, I don’t have a bit of scrap book paper, I should get some to do fun projects with, you are inspiring me to go shopping!
    My garden is exploding, just in the last couple of days too, man what a little sun can do huh?

    Have a great weekend, can’t wait to see your garden pictures when your done!!

    Big hugs,
